It's difficult to conceive of any other way to begin talking about BrÃ ¼no"" besides exclaiming ""oy vey."" The film is clearly designed to engender ambivalent responses; viewers leave the theater perfectly aware of the fact that they laughed heartily at the various exploits of the film's eponymous protagonist, but they also walk away feeling kind of... repulsed. If ""BrÃ ¼no"" seems to cross a certain line, it is because the film follows one plan of attack: Lay it on thick, lay it on heavy and actively flirt with an NC-17 rating, knowing full well that not even the MPAA would dare give the death sentence to a film with such surefire profit potential.

The following should be made clear right away: Madison doesn't figure very prominently in this, the latest film directed by UW-Madison alum Michael Mann. The Capitol serves as the backdrop for a brief press conference delivered by J. Edgar Hoover (Billy Crudup) and Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale). The scene lasts all of 30 seconds or so. Now that this disappointing fact has been established, it should also be said that the other 8,370 seconds of Public Enemies"" are pretty remarkable in their own right.
At a trim 80 minutes, ""Wendy and Lucy"" is as slender and simple as it is dense and stunning. For a film that's pretty straightforward about the emotions it's trying to stir, ""Wendy and Lucy"" deserves the highest compliment: It's a really potent punch to the gut. It marries big-time affectivity with intellectual abstraction; that is, if it doesn't make you too miserable to think afterward.

For most of us, polarization and partisan division have characterized our entire political lives. We came of age right as America went into a war it never should have started. The political realities for our generation rest in division, fear and negativity, in the choice of politicians to purposely sidestep the Constitution and violate civil liberties. After seven long years, we must take our country back. Barack Obama is ready to provide this needed leadership.

In their latest release, the foreboding and ambitious Game Theory, Philadelphia hip-hop veterans the Roots exhaust little time and mince few rhymes before conveying the monolithic cloud of social and political turmoil that shrouds our nation. The first full-length track, ""False Media,"" depicts a disoriented country stuck inside the nightmare of Columbine High School, a country where ""Eleven million children are on Ritalin."" They explain resolutely, ""That's why I don't rhyme / For the sake of riddling."" Game Theory earnestly identifies with America's struggling youth and couples raw, emotionally vivid poetry with nuanced, funk-inspired riffs, offering a dark, stimulating hip-hop experience par excellence.
Until the policy was changed in October, cafeterias in the 18 schools of the North Penn School District (northwest of Philadelphia) had been supplying as eating utensils only plastic cutlery that was washed after each meal and reused, even though students had long expressed disgust at spoons and knives riddled with bite marks and had, defensively, taken to eating foods like yogurt and applesauce with their hands. (The district admitted that this recycling saved only $15,000 a year).
