Back to the old (school)house after nearly 70 years

Oct. 13, 2014 1:51 p.m.

Though Jack Pettey's name isn't the biggest graffiti in the attic at Maryland Avenue School, for some reason it -- and the date, 1946 -- jumps out at you. When I snapped some photographs, Pettey's distinctive scrawl made it into the frame and his name was etched in my memory. Last week, I snapped another photo of it. This time, Pettey himself was in the picture.

The word "experimental" is used in the biopic genre about as often as the words "fun for the whole family" are used to describe a strip club. The soundtrack and venues may change, but the moves and the designed highs and lows are all the same. So props to "Jimi: All Is By My Side" for making a biopic that departs from the exhausted formula and does so successfully.

"The Overnighters" is a fascinating look at America's current moral battle

Oct. 4, 2014 6:06 p.m.

At merely face value, the documentary "The Overnighters" has a terrific story to tell. In a modest North Dakota town, writer-director Jesse Moss finds a classic Great Depression tale - about the American dream and American reality smashing into one another, leaving broken people in its quietly explosive aftermath - remodeled for modern times.
