"Chungking Express" Screening at Mesa Public Library

on April 29, 2012 - 10:18pm

Review by Kelly Dolejsi

On Thursday, the library will screen writer/director Kar Wei Wong's "Chungking Express," a nineties movie that feels like a nineties movie. Having "come of age" in the nineties, I mean that as a compliment. I like flannel shirts mixed with impressionistic psychotic love. And, it turns out - no offense to my Seattle-born (go figure) Anglo husband - I sometimes like Chinese men.

This is a great movie, but to be honest, it took me a long time to realize it. I was well into the film before I started to understand and care about its very messed up characters.

Springtime 2012: 50 Hikes in the Los Alamos Area

on April 27, 2012 - 7:06am

COUNTY News:
 

Many years ago, Frances Arnold, Carol Carlson and Maxine Ellis created a 50 Hikes trail list for friends who wanted to explore our beautiful mesas, canyons, and mountains. The Santa Fe National Forest later adopted the list as a convenience for visitors.
 

Despite subsequent publication of a number of hiking books for the area, the list still serves its purpose as a quick introduction to the east side of the Jemez Mountains. As years go by, changing conditions require that the list be revised periodically.
