A cinematic sparring match unlike any other in recent memory, “Some Velvet Morning” offers an unflinching glimpse into the lives of an alluring prostitute, Velvet (Alice Eve), and her domineering lover, Fred (Stanley Tucci). Over the course of 83 minutes, we eavesdrop on this toxic pair as they engage in an impassioned war of words – chatting, groping, yelling and sobbing, all within the confines of her upscale townhouse. Written and directed by Tony-nominated playwright Neil LaBute, this low-budget chamber piece has been flying under the radar since its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, but will surely blindside audiences this winter with nuanced performances and a certain shocking plot twist. Ahead of its Valley release at Harkins Shea 14 in Scottsdale this weekend, GetOut spoke with LaBute about the film, his French influences, and experience collaborating with Tucci and Eve.
A Belgian drama with bluegrass music may seem like an unlikely combo, but director Felix van Groeningen pulls it off spectacularly in his heart-wrenching new film “The Broken Circle Breakdown,” which is already garnering whispers of Academy Award recognition. While other foreign-language Oscar hopefuls such as “Wadjda” and “The Hunt” have come and gone from theaters (with others such as “Gloria” and “The Past” not making their way to Phoenix until early 2014), “Broken Circle” is arriving this month, opening at Harkins Camelview 5 in Scottsdale this Friday, Dec. 6.
At this time of year it’s quite natural for people to start thinking about the spiritual.
Admittedly, it is a little early to start talking about Christmas; Halloween is barely a week away, and Thanksgiving still awaits in the middle of the holiday sandwich. And there’s some reflection of that fact in Aaron Leach’s front yard in Mesa on Oct. 21, with several strands of light and inflatable ornaments unpacked but strewn all over the brown ground.

America’s middle class used to be the proud backbone of our economy. They made things, things of value that other people would pay for. Not only did the middle class prosper, they were the driver of America’s emergence as the world’s economic superpower.
Kids are going to change our world for the better. We can count on it. As per my last column (“Next generations resetting our world,” Tribune, Sept. 15), I reported on the idea that as certain society systems collapse, the next generations will step forward and “reset” our trajectory. (See The Fourth Turning by historians William Strauss and Neil Howe.)
Common Core has been the enemy du jour of the tea party these days — at least when partiers are not busy trying to defund Obamacare or failing to stop Medicare expansion here in Arizona.

We get it, David Rich. We really do. (Tribune, “Letter: Dr. King stood up for animal rights, too”; Sept. 3).
If you’re like me, you have some real doubts about increasing our involvement in Syria by responding to that country’s use of deadly gas attacks.
I read this morning where Bashas’ got caught mis-labeling meat as one or more grades higher than what it actually is.
While I stand at the pump deciding whether my windshield needs cleaning or to wait until after the next monsoon storm, I am often reminded that gauging the reasons gasoline prices go up or down is no science.
In my last column, I wrote about a wedding video business that went out of business.
Parents, you can already picture those first mornings of the school year: the challenge of dragging cranky kids out of their beds at dawn after two months of mellow summer mornings.
I am a feminist.
I have never been one to consider my gender to be a factor when it comes to my career. I am a firm believer that my actions and work ethic bear a far greater impact on my success. I’m not saying that being a woman in business doesn’t change the game a bit — especially when it comes to how my actions are perceived — but it certainly has no place in my daily thought process or leadership efforts.
A good friend once told me that the only constant is change. There is no truer statement.

The name “Power Square” sounds like that Hulk-shouldered, blind date named Herman that your cousin dumped on you; you know the guy who felt it necessary to explain his jokes.
Editor’s note: Mark Scarp is taking this week off. The following column was first published July 10, 2011. “Two years later,” Scarp said last week, “and we still have the same contradiction between state laws allowing fireworks to be sold and owned and city ordinances prohibiting their use. What a way to celebrate Independence Day, huh?”
