"Blue Caprice" looks into the minds of the Beltway monsters

Biopics can be difficult even for an experienced filmmaker. The nature of the art form requires that a large part of the story, sometimes the subject's entire life, be severely truncated and other artistic liberties taken in order to create an interesting film with a sensible runtime. No matter how

Searching for stew in the South Puget Sound

Autumn. I love the onset of the season. I do all the usual autumn stuff: dodge geysers in the middle of Schuster Parkway; chase a flying Buick in Puyallup; drive all over town looking for a movie house not completely packed with government employees. But most of all, I look

Blue Skies for Black Hearts indelible melodies and gorgeous guitars

Over the course of music history, there's been a strong contingent of bands making beautifully melodic pop music with a bit of an edge, but not enough of an edge to ever really get the attention they deserve. If guitars aren't being wrecked, people tend to take the music for

Music Critics' Picks: Half Kingdom, Horse Bodies, Arts Walk Hip-Hop and Crooked Bangs

[POST PUNK] + FRI, OCT. 4 I know next to nothing about Half Kingdom, beyond what I can hear in their two available songs online. What I can tell, just by listening to them, is that they embrace a moody post-punk that teems with energy even as it confounds expectations. Clattering

Visual Edge: Hello Meghan Mitchell

Meghan Mitchell's drawings in the show "Hello" at Fulcrum Gallery are delightful. I could easily dismiss them as cute little drawings not really important as art, but I could just as easily dismiss the art of great graphic artists like Saul Steinberg and Jules Feiffer in the same way. I

Marilyn Frasca's "Like This" at Childhood's End

The 71 drawings in Marilyn Frasca's "Like This" at Childhood's End are stunning. It is an exhibition of drawings done since 2001. All of the drawings are done with pastel or other media drawn into monoprints. Each picture tells a story, be it the story of Squaxin Indians recreating an

Theater Review: Harlequin's Henry V

The first thing that has to be said about Henry V is it wasn't the first thing that had to be said. That's because it isn't a sequel, it's a fourquel, expanding on characters who first appear in Shakespeare's Richard II and Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2. Luckily, as

Theater Review: The lion, the witch and whatever

To acknowledge my bias up front, I could rant on for thousands of words about the reasons I hate C.S. Lewis. I find his Christian apologias patronizing if not simpleminded. His children's books, about an allegorical wonderland called Narnia, are as inconsistent and illogical as the stories on which they're
