I know, you're all wondering why I haven't reviewed this movie sooner. Cowboys, hot gay sex, handsome men with impenetrable accents, angst, gorgeous scenery - it doesn't get much better than that, does it? [more]

DON'T TALK ABOUT RELIGION OR POLITICS
Sergio Hernandez, Gwyneth Leech, Poli Marichal, John Paul Thornton, and Mark Vallen.
Opened January 7th at the Ave. 50 Studio (131 N. Ave. 50 in Highland Park).
Review by Don Newton
Unfortunately, this show is about to close (February 6) but if you can make itů
The Avenue 50 Studio is a bare storefront-size room in one half of an old building next to the new tracks of the Gold Line. The exhibit is arranged (unsurprisingly) on 3 of the 4 walls, presenting an initial aspect of passivity, which the subject matter immediately begins to contradict.
The only exception to the painterly, wall-mounted artwork is Poli Marichal's disturbing "Elegy to Scheharazade," an installation piece: a rug mounted on a bloody, muslin-covered table, and strewn with severed heads. On the rug itself, a red form of a woman is painted, with one of the stylized heads lying on her stomach. The rest of the heads are piled at the foot of the table on a bloody cloth, and it feels like the blood will get on your shoes unless you're very careful. Behind this, there are several small paper images of the "eye of Fatima," a traditional Muslim design with mottoes on each: "Freedom to Study," "Freedom to Love," "Equal Rights as Men," "Freedom of Movement," "Freedom of Speech." She has three more paintings on a facing wall, each of them dealing with a religious theme interspersed with politics. [more]
