The Imposter

Too good to be true, and yet ...


Documentary

Rod Lott
Although now I can’t remember the publication, I recall reading an article about con artist Frédéric Bourdin and thinking, “This would make a really good documentary.” A few years later, The Imposter is that documentary.

aDD it up

In rapping about the positive, Oklahoma City’s aDDLib has cracked the equation for hip-hop success.


Music

Joshua Boydston
aDDLib hasn't starred in movies, and you probably won't find him in a production of Riverdance anytime soon, but that doesn't mean he's not a triple threat. A talented rapper, studio artist and graphic designer, aDDLib — the moniker of lifelong Oklahoma City resident Dewayne Butler — is quite the total package.

‘Land’ ho!

Look, up in the sky! It’s local artist Rick Sinnett, working on ‘This Land,’ a mural adorning the outside of Rocktown Climbing Gym.


Visual Arts

Liz Blood

Drive Interstate 40 just south of Bricktown, and you might see artist Rick Sinnett. He’s the one swinging from a rope anchored to the top of Rocktown Climbing Gym, wrangling a 5-gallon bucket of paint as he works on his latest mural, This Land.

Nice Guys Don’t Work in Hollywood: The Adventures of an Aesthete in the Movie Business — Curtis Harrington

But Harrington did!


Nonfiction

Rod Lott
Curtis Harrington’s autobiography is how I imagine the man to have been: soft-spoken, honest and intelligent. Those wondering, “Who’s Curtis Harrington?” should know that is part of the book’s point. Here was a talented filmmaker who never quite got his due, for reasons that had nothing to do with creativity and everything to do with commerce. Here was an artist who worked in a system that had no interest in art.
