So tonight is The Girl With the Exploding Dragon Tattoo. Oh, wait, they’re different films. One must admit a tattoo of an exploding dragon would be sweet. 9pm at the magnificent California Theater: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, based on the Scandinavian best seller about a pair of investigators tracking down the real story of a ghastly string of murders.
By contrast, The Exploding Girl (Cam 12, 7pm) is almost like a palimpsest of Gabi/Roof/July, with Zoe Kazan (the writer gal in Orson Welles and Me, and DiCaprio’s girl-on-the-side in Revolutionary Road). Kazan is Ivy, an NYC lady who has to put up a friend for the summer. Whether or not an affair will break out: that is the question. Kazan got best actress at Tribeca for this Bradley Rust Gray film. Trivia: Gray’s movie Salt (filmed in Iceland!) was a visual influence on Sin Nombre, according to director Cary Fukunaga.

Earlier, at 7pm, Dr. Deepak Chopra will let the shining light of his countenance dispel all bad vibes at the festival. He’s at the California Theatre to sort of, I don’t know, wash over all of us, and to receive a Life of a Maverick award.
Later at night, if you want those bad vibes back, is a documentary about the discovery of hidden relics of the Holocaust at Maidenek concentration camp Buried Prayers, at 9:15. Or you could just go see some cartoons.

Shorts Program 4 has several standouts, but mong the animated work there is a shocker by Chris Landreth, The Spine, just about my favorite things at this entire fest. Landreth got the Oscar in 2005 for Ryan, whose story about his fellow Oscar nominee, the animator Ryan Larkin, whose life was ruined by substance abuse. The new one was a little too tough for the academy, apparently…a frightening story of a discovery at a group therapy session and  one of those films that proves (Jarrod W. should pardon the expression) hell is other people.

  • A bail bond agent, or bondsman, is any person or corporation that will act as a surety and pledge money or property as bail for the appearance of persons accused in court. Although banks, insurance companies and other similar institutions are usually the sureties on other types of contracts (for example, to bond a contractor who is under a contractual obligation to pay for the completion of a construction project) such entities are reluctant to put their depositors’ or policyholders’ funds at the kind of risk involved in posting a bail bond. Bail bond agents, on the other hand, are usually in the business to cater to criminal defendants, often securing their customers’ release in just a few hours. Bail bond agents are almost exclusively found in the United States and its former commonwealth, The Philippines. In most other countries bail is usually much less and the practice of bounty hunting is illegal.

  • Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and
    tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
