A picnic supper will Ending doesn't tarnish good film ROGER EBERT Universal Press Syndicate ''- Jack Nicholson plays a grumpy misanthrope who insults everyone around him, including a pa- itient waitress (Helen Hunt) and a gay neighbor (Greg Kinnear) in "A.-s Good As It "Gets." Then he's 1 tqr'ced to care for jhe neighbor's idbg, and his developing affection for ihe mutt unlocks a jjertain capacity for tenderness. Di- re*cted by James L. Brooks ("Terms of •Endearment"), the film has barbed ^rid sometimes hilarious dialogue •and sharply seen characters, but it "drags them kicking and screaming toward an unconvincing happy ending. Rating: Three stars. Shall We Dance? ; "A man sees a beautiful woman standing at a window and mounts itRe" stairs to a dance studio to •learn the secret of her mystery. In Japan, where the movie is set, ballroom dancing is seen as slight- Jy scandalous, and so the man is likely to discover not only her secrets but some of his own. The opening is fascinating, the second act provides drama and comedy, and the ending is thoroughly satisfying in a traditional movie way. Intriguing and entertaining. Rating: Three and a half stars. Little Indian, Big City One of the worst movies ever made, an exercise in idiocy that would have been incredibly bad in the original French, but has been made worse by being badly dubbed into English. It's about a moronic Paris businessman who has not seen his wife in 13 years and discovers she has raised their son as an Indian in the Amazon. He brings the kid back to Paris, and ... but never mind. Even reading about this film is a waste of time. Rating: No stars. Tomorrow Never Dies In its 35th year, the Bond series gets a lift from a slyly contemporary villain; Jonathan Pryce plays a media baron who wants to start a world war in order to dramatize the launch of his news channel. Pierce Brosnan, sleek and convincing, plays 007; Asian martial arts star Michelle Yeoh has great presence and chemistry as one of the most memorable Bond girls. Elaborate chases, incredible stunts, obligatory cliches and inevitable product placement: It's all here, in good repair. Rating: Three stars. Playing God David Duchovny from "The X- Files" plays a defrocked doctor who saves a guy's life in a bar and then is offered a job by a gangster (Tim Hutton) who could use a gunshot expert on staff. Angelina Jolie plays Hutton's girlfriend, attracted to Duchovny, as they get mired in a complicated scam involving counterfeit fashions. Good work by the leads in a preposterous story they make almost believable. Rating: Three stars. V SALINA ART CENTER Art center invites patrons to 'Do It' By The Journal Staff The Salina Art Center will open an unusual participatory exhibit Sunday. Following the instructions of internationally recognized artists, art center visitors can create from at least 15 works. The instructions, from such artists as John Baldessari, Christian Boltanski and Yoko Ono, may ask a visitor to observe and record whether others know when they are being stared at, or to write a postcard to a friend using a ZIP code directory. The founders of "Do It" compare the exercise to a musical piece or a play, which varies with each interpretation and production. While the artists create the instructions, the participants create the piece of work. On May 22, the art center will stage its own version of four works. It will be from 5 to 6:30 p.m. For one piece, members of the public are asked to bring something red to use in "Homage to Each Red Thing," by Alison Knowles. The instructions for "Homage" are: • Divide the exhibition space floor into squares of any size. • Put one red thing into each square. • Completely cover the floor this way. "Homage" will stay in place throughout the exhibition but will be changing continually as new red pieces are added and others withdrawn. Other projects to be performed on May 22 are "Projects for Poems," by Spanish artist Joan Brossa; "Exercises," by German artist Ulrike Grossarth; and "Untitled, 1994" by Argentine artist Rirkit Tira- vanija. The entire show's guest curator is Hans-Ulrich Obrist of Vienna. FROM PAGE D1 Reporter to teach journal-writing class A workshop on journal writing will feature Gary Demuth, a Salina Journal writer. The class will be from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Smoky Hill Museum Community Room, 211 W. Iron. It is free and open to the public. Demuth will talk about recording daily life experiences, thoughts, feelings and opinions. For more information, call Debbie Weaver at 826-7460. From Staff Reports There are a few times when he has a concept beforehand that he will carry through. "Score," a painting that depicts squares of newspaper Wall Street reports with patches of red paint, a way for him to show incidents when the various leaders of the United States had a hand in the death of people for power or financial gain, was one. But those times are rare. Most of the time he relies on his unconscious mind to guide him. "The materials suggest the next move," Elliott said. "Sometimes I don't know what the hell it's about until it's done." Elliott hasn't been one to promote his own work through his career. He's never had his own show before, and as a result, most in Salina aren't familiar with his work. Sometimes his artistic friends will chastise him for not sharing his work with the public, but Elliott would rather create new work than promote his old work. "I just stack the paintings against the bedroom wall," he said. "I haven't pursued shows or competitions. I've just been lazy about it. It takes a lot of energy to promote, and I'd rather use that energy in creating the piece." This is Elliott's first show, and he would like more. "I need to make an effort to get my work seen by more people rather than a few friends," he said. "I think that's what I want to start doing more often." Elliott feels good about his work, and he's proud of it, so he said he may not be nervous about the show until about an hour before it opens. "I'm pretty excited," he said. "I've never created anything that's gotten me in trouble, but then again, there aren't a lot who have seen my work, so maybe I should be more nervous than I am." Cloth Gift Bags SffifiMill -I;;,.
