One man makes mechanical waves with one-of-a-kind robot creations, built from abandoned scraps.


Visual Arts

Mia Cantu
Since childhood, John Doneti has been fascinated with robots. The one from TV’s Lost in Space, simply named Robot, intrigued him as did the concept behind Rossum’s Universal Robots, a science-fiction play that introduced the word to the English language

Painting the town Greg

Longtime local artist Greg Burns keeps up with the ever-changing city.


Visual Arts

Patrick Crain
Somewhere there exists a run of prints of a one-off Greg Burns piece containing a small detail that makes it rare. At first blush, it looks familiar enough: a rendering of the iconic Townley’s milk-bottle grocery store on Classen Boulevard.

Owens’ field

Local artist Romy Owens has earned a gig that’s literally high-profile: For the next year, her studio is streetside in the Skirvin Hilton.


Visual Arts

Shelly Hickman
In its storied, 101-year history, the Skirvin Hilton Hotel has accommodated some of the most influential people in the world, but no one until now — other than its legendary ghost, Effie, of course — stays for an entire year.

Gravity

Space is the place.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Gravity is one of those rare films that truly is meant to be experienced on the big screen. If theaters were a thing of the past — and believe me, it's only a matter of time — it is doubtful it would have been made.

Contracted

STD OMG!


Horror

Rod Lott
If David Cronenberg taught sex-ed classes, Contracted could be the film shown on the day they split the boys and girls among separate rooms. The IFC Midnight release's lesson: Always use protection. Especially if you're going to have a one-night stand with a necrophiliac.

The Wolf of Wall Street

Badfellas.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Leaving the recent Academy Awards empty-handed, Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street nonetheless is one of the few 2013 Best Picture nominees we'll still be watching decades later.

Confession of Murder

It's pretty good, your honor.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Seventeen years after slaying 10 women and getting away with it, the charismatic serial killer Du-sok (Park Si-hoo) comes clean with a Confession of Murder, in this 2012 South Korean crime thriller. He does so by publishing a book that dishes all the grisly details.

Switched on

TV gets weird.


Television series

Rod Lott
Not everything on television has to appeal to mass audiences. In fact, with the further fractioning of viewership thanks to alternatives like Netflix and VOD, more series can afford to become more niche. Here are five examples of shows both past and present — and new to DVD and/or Blu-ray — that encompass some of the more outrageous ideas ever to go beyond boardroom discussion.
