The LEGO Ninjago Movie Is What Skeptics Initially Feared the Franchise Would Be

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) The latest LEGO spinoff opens on Friday, Sep. 22. The latest LEGO flick is what skeptics initially feared the franchise would be, before Phil Lord and Christopher Miller elevated The LEGO Movie into something witty and poignant. Charlie Bean applies his safe Cartoon Network sensibility to this spinoff about young ninjas protecting the land of Ninjago.…



Genesis, the Gospels, and Revelation Plunge Through a Psych-Horror Looking Glass in mother!

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) Darren Aronofsky's baffling, rewarding film opened wide last Friday. In Darren Aronofsky's Rorschach test of a film, a husband (Javier Bardem), identified only as "Him," is a poet with writer's block. Meanwhile, his wife (Jennifer Lawrence), identified only as "Mother," tends to their Victorian fixer-upper.…



LaVare’s House Is a Much-Needed Durham Haven for LGBTQIA People in Addiction Recovery

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) Local author Sam Peterson adds to the story he told in Trunky (transgender junky): A Memoir of Institutionalization & Southern Hospitality. I am a transgender man and a recovering heroin addict. In March 2013, a dear friend and social worker picked me up from my ex-girlfriend's house, where I was languishing on her sofa, stuffed with Ben and Jerry's and what was probably fentanyl-enlarged heroin.…



Closer Than They Appear Probes the Cutting Edges of Virtual Reality, the Military, and PTSD Treatment

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) Christine Evans's compelling drama runs at UNC in the Process Series through Oct. 1. As my family gathered to mourn my uncle's death, cable news was stuck in a loop. An endless procession of commercial aircraft crashed into waiting skyscrapers.…



Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead Is So Much More than a Peanuts Satire

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) Bert V. Royal's rewarding dark comedy runs at NRACT through Oct. 1. It's a mistake to consider Dog Sees God a satire of Peanuts. Rather, Bert V. Royal's dark comedy is an extension of Charles Schulz's beloved creation.…



The Cake Edits Reality to Ignore the Everyday Consequences of Bible Belt Homophobia

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) Bekah Brunstetter's apologia for nice Southern Christian folks runs at PlayMakers through Oct. 1. Bekah Brunstetter's new drama, The Cake, is a rare thing in our current moment: a calculated apologia for conservative Southern Christianity and the antigay bigotry its practitioners have inculcated in their families—and have attempted, through legislation, to impose on everyone else. This is intimate terrain for Brunstetter, whose father, a former North Carolina senator, sponsored the Amendment One ban on same-sex marriages, a bill passed in 2012 and ruled unconstitutional in 2014.…



Site Terrific: A Third Friday When the Durham Dance Scene Just Worked

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) Stephanie Leathers, Anna Barker, ShaLeigh Dance Works, and Ginger Wagg showed Durham dance at its best last Friday. Durham's rich independent dance scene is experimental in the truest sense: rather than just putting strange things in easily legible contexts, its artists frequently reinvent context with each performance, experimenting with the tacit contract between audiences and performers, not just with the work itself. In a city keenly aware of its own rapid gentrification, whose landscape is defined as much by construction projects as by established places, these experiments are focused in site-specific ways: If I put dance here, what happens to the dance?…



The Durham Bulls Are Champions. But Does It Matter?

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) For players and fans, the post-season stakes are lower—and that's exactly why the playoffs are precious. The Durham Bulls won the International League championship on Friday. It was their fifth title and eleventh finals appearance in the last fifteen years—an extraordinary accomplishment, especially in the volatile context of Triple-A minor-league baseball, where rosters change almost daily under a major-league "parent club" that promotes and demotes players at its whim, rendering the notion of a coherent team dubious.…



Hiss Golden Messenger's New Hallelujah Anyhow Is a Concentrated Effort from a Well-Oiled Machine

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) The Durham band buckled down over the summer for the mature and mellow LP. Occupying the nebulous realm where neo-psychedelic country meets soulful Americana, Durham's Hiss Golden Messenger has steadily raised its national profile since breaking out with Lateness of Dancers in 2014. Before a North American tour that includes arena dates with Mumford & Sons, the band already has a follow-up LP to last year's Heart Like a Levee, which ended up on a slew of best-of lists in country and folk.…



Liars' Latest Album, TFCF, Is a Break-Up Record—But Not Quite How You'd Expect

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) The band headlines at Cat's Cradle in Carrboro Saturday night. Liars is a band that has never stood still. Its musical fascinations have led it from dancey post-punk to dark, atmospheric experimental music, to straightforwardly structured noise rock.…



Durham's Fortified Beats N Bars Festival Promises a Hip-Hop Heavy Weekend That's Stronger Than Ever

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) The festival holds court downtown on Friday and Saturday nights. The sound of screeching steel pierces tranquil early fall air with vexatious intensity as a CSX train travels its route between Durham's Ramseur and West Pettigrew streets, passing the parking lot behind The Pinhook. "We're going to have to schedule our lineup so that this doesn't interrupt people's sets," says Jonathan Harmon, who scrunches his face in acknowledgment of the freight's uncomfortable presence.…



The INDY Endorses Kenneth Presting for Cary Town Council District C

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 07:00:00 -0400

(image) Jack Smith is a Cary institution, but Kenneth Presting offers some needed new blood In District C, incumbent Jack Smith faces newcomer Kenneth Presting. Smith is the council's longest-serving member—to mark his twenty-fifth anniversary on the council, his colleagues named a park after him in 2014—and is now seeking his eighth term.…
