The Border

Tony Richardson’s look at corruption in the border patrol service is both sensational and insightful, and Jack Nicholson gives a committed performance as a downtrodden functionary who finds himself in a major moral and humanitarian catastrophe. The problem is still there today, with no consensus on the right diagnosis or solution. The action melodrama costars Harvey Keitel & Valerie Perrine, and introduces (to the U.S.) the impressive Elpidia Carrillo.

Take Five

New Attitudes, Old ProjectsBeth Grant, Los Angeles Passion Play My 16-year-old daughter, Mary, a self-described musical theatre geek, is in the kitchen, dancing and singing wildly to Godspell. Mary is just under 6 feet tall and in 10th grade. Alas and alack, she wants to be an actor like her mom and dad. I have mixed emotions. We went to the closing night of Wicked at the Pantages. It was Mary's 10th time seeing the show as a paying audience member, but last year she got a job ushering so she could study the performances. It is her dream to play Elphaba. She has my strong angular features, a natural four-octave range, and huge passion. That's what I need, that’s what I'm looking to rekindle this year: passion. How do we keep the passion going? I'm lucky in that I almost always have passion in the moment of the work.

You may have seen greatness before, but you've never seen it as a 6-foot-tall woven blanket.

Until now.

As attendees of Ff '08 acutely recall, everyone at the festival (including our honored guests!) was asked to submit a Shakeyface photo for their badge, and the most ridiculous and biologically impossible was promised a valuable award. We're proud to report that we have the prize in hand for winner Robert Lambert! Whether he hangs it above his hearth, makes it the centerpiece in the living room or uses it as a decorative bedspread, Robert's talent Shakeyface legacy will live forever, immortalized for the ages.

When we picked up the blanket, the lady at the counter said, "If I had that in my house, it would make me die." An unsolicited testimonial to true victory!! Congratulations, champion!

The Ff '08 Shakeyface competitors are largely represented in this gripping educational film:
