Off Broadway, Lemon Sky is an old fashioned play, about a 17-year-old son going to live with his estranged father in California, and the toxic relationship between them, starring Keith Nobbs, with Kevin Kilner as the father. The acting is first rate. The Keen Company is to be commended for reviving Lanford Wilson's play.
 

 
The Bald Soprano was given a splendid production, with an outstanding six member cast, by the Pearl Theatre. We celebrated this amusing theatre of the absurd with a party in the rehearsal room at City Center.

 
The Submission is well acted play about a white male playwright (Jonathan Groff), who submits his play to a festival, pretending to be an African-American woman. He persuades a black actress (Rutina Wesley) to attend the festival as the bogus author. Complications ensue. The opening night party at 49 Grove was attended by many actors like Hugh Dancy, Nina Arianda and Hamish Linklater.

 
Phyllis Newman hosted a reception in her beautiful apartment for the publication of her book What's New at the Zoo. Many of her friend like Polly Bergen, Nancy Opel, Kate Baldwin and Alexandra Silber attended.

 
The Casting Society of America presented the 27th Annual Artios Awards at District 36. Whoopi Goldberg received the New York Apple award from Mike Nichols. Among the many presenters were Lucy Liu, Rachel Griffiths and Patina Miller.

 
Sir Howard Stringer was honored at the 2011 American Theatre Wing Gala at the Plaza Hotel. Among the many guests were Marilu Henner, Angela Lansbury, Lucie Arnaz and Laurence Luckinbill.

 
Submissions Only Season 2 had a reception and screening at Ink Lounge, and Max Von Essen, Becky Gulsvig and Beth Leavel were among the many cast members and Broadway actors.

 
A Soprano Celebrity Dinner was held at the Empire Steak House with cast members like Dominic Chianese, Vincent Pastore and Tony Darrow.

 
I attended the reception for the Indian Institute of Technology (ITT) at the Hilton Hotel. Grammy nominated singer Chandrika Tandon performed at the beginning of the opening night night of the conference which takes place September 30-October 2.

 
The New York City Ballet presented Ocean's Kingdom, choreography by Peter Martins, with music and libretto by Paul McCartney, his first composition for dance. The music is quite pleasant, but the fairy tale libretto leaves a lot to be desired. The lead dancers, Sara Means and Robert Fairchild were excellent. The second ballet on the program was Union Jack, by Balanchine, an inspired tribute to Great Britain. It is colorful and entertaining, filling the stage magnificently with seventy members of the company. It is one of my favorite ballets.

The screenings of the Film Society of Lincoln Center's 49th New York Film Festival continue. The Turin Horse, by Bela Tarr and Agnes Hranitzky, Hungary/France/Germany/Switzerland, 2011, is a long, very long story (146 minutes) about a father and daughter and their horse, who live in isolation in a desolate landscape. They rarely talk together, and spend their days sleeping, eating potatoes, while the daughter sews, fetches water from the well, cooks their potatoes, and dresses and undresses her disabled father.

It is a grim, depressing view of two lonely people's lives. When you leave the screening, you will be blissfully happy that you live in New York. 4:44 Last Day on Earth. by Abel Ferrara, USA, 2011, takes place in a loft in the Lower East Side in New York, where a couple, Willem Dafoe and Shanyn Leigh await the end of the world. They spend the remainder of their life on earth making love, ordering Chinese food and talking to family via SKYPE.
 

 
 

 
 

 

The man wanders around the streets and visits some friends after a fight with his girlfriend. He then returns home for their eventual demise. It is another gloomy film, with little redeemimg virtue, with the exception of the young lady, who is quite attractive.

Miss Bala
, by Gerardo Naranjo, Mexico, 2011, is about a beauty queen, who becomes involved with a drug gang in Tijuana. It shows the violence and horror that exists today in Mexico. It is a powerful film, showing the persuasive corruption in the society and the abuse of women. The director and the lead actress Stephanie Stigman attended a Q & A after the screening. Carnage, by Roman Polanski, 2011, France/Germany/Poland, is a enjoyable film, based on the Tony winning play by Yasmina Reza. Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly are two couples, who meet to resolve the conflict that arises when their sons have a brutal fight in a playground. Their civilized behavior collapses as the meeting progresses to the level of their children. The actors are splendid and it is a funny film. It is highly recommended.


A Separation
, by Asghar Farhadi, 2011 Iran, is a powerful, well acted film about a couple who separate after a 14-year marriage. The fight over the possession of their 11-year-old girl is complicated by the hiring of a pregnant woman to look after the husband's father suffering from Alzheimer's disease. The story evolves into a very serious legal case. The twists and turns of this very impressive film keeps the audience in suspense from the beginning to end.

 
The Student, by Santiago Mitre, 2011, Argentina, is about a university student caught up in campus politics. On a grant to the Universidad Autonoma de Mexico, I was surprised how active student politics were then, and this film realistically captures the atmosphere that exists today in Latin America. A fine debut feature by the director, with an excellent cast. Retaliation, by Yasuharu Hasabe, 1968, Japan is one of 37 films of Velvet Bullets and Steel Kisses: Celebrating the Nikkatsu Centennial, which will be shown from October 1-16.  The film is a gang war full of blood and gore, that makes American gangster movies look mild and gentle by comparison.

 
Sleeping Sickness, by Ulrich Kohler, 2011 Germany/France/Netherlands, is about a white doctor in Cameroon, and a black doctor from Paris who comes to evaluate his project three years later. It is an absorbing film, which shows the poverty and poor quality of life of the majority of native inhabitants, and the disappearance of much of the foreign aid to help them, on account of the corruption that pervades the country. Once upon a Time in Anatolia, by Nuri Bilge Ceylan, 2011, Turkey, is a police investigation searching for the victim of a murder in a small town in a poor section of the country. As the film progresses, we become acquainted with the police inspector, the prosecutor and a doctor, who will perform an autopsy on the victim. The film captures the way of life in a rural area of the country, and leaves a profound impression on the viewer. Both films are highly recommended.
