INTERVIEW: Wes Anderson escapes to Moonrise Kingdom
Ciniplex - over 4 years
About a third of the way through Wes Anderson's '60s-set, lemon-hued look at young love and endless summers, Suzy Bishop (Kara Hayward) takes an inventory of the items she brought when she ran away from home with paramour and fellow escapee Sam Shakusky (Jared Gilman). Among the varied ephemera in her survival kit are a selection of fantasy books, her record player, a Françoise Hardy album or two, rubber bands, left-handed scissors and her kitten. Though Anderson, on the phone from Paris, never went to summer camp and admits the idea for Moonrise Kingdom came from the vivid emotions associated with "being a fifth-grader who thinks that he's fallen in love," he has plenty of experience planning an escape from the adult world. "I remember making various attempts to run away. But for me, my older brother and I, we would set off on these things and we usually were very focused on any kind of real survival gear we could get," he shared. "A lot of knives, anything that invol ...

Review: Norah Jones ‘…Little Broken Hearts’
Death and Tazxes - almost 5 years
Release date: May 1, 2012. Rating: 4/5 Jazz singer and noted dinner-party music warbler Norah Jones started her career making the kind of music that sounds amazing being played in the background of any given pleasant moment. Her music tends to sound as if some ethereal music supervisor in a cloud somewhere is having you star in your very own montage music. There you are walking on a beach with a loved one. There you are sipping a warm cup of coffee next to a golden retriever. Oh look, there’s you putting on a comfortable grey sweater. Norah’s music has never been, shall we say, hyperbolic. “…Little Broken Hearts” starts off as plaintive as an album could ever possibly start – the opening track “Good Morning” appears to be an almost deliberate attempt to lull the listener into accepting the slightly colder and more detached side of her personality that becomes more present later on in the album. Throughout her career she has made rather… well… hug-inducing sounding music, shall we ...
