'california heist' looks at the state's water supply

'water & power: a california heist' probes issues older than the current drought


an end to california’s historic drought may finally be in sight, but it seems that the state’s water crisis is a mere drop in the bucket in relation to the decades of dirty dealings probed in the revealing national geographic documentary, “water & power: a california heist.”from the monterey amendments, a contentious policy that favored select central valley farmers, to the current ecologically problematic practice of groundwater extraction which could potentially create vast sinkholes, corporate thirst for control over the aquifer is emerging as the next environmental battleground.while the approach taken by filmmaker marina zenovich, who directed 2008’s “roman polanski: wanted and desired,” relies heavily on talking heads — gov. jerry brown among them — she admittedly paints a compelling

beyond ben affleck: how do stars fare as actor-directors?


one of the most ambitious challenges in hollywood — actors doubling as directors on their films — has proved too much for ben affleck, who will no longer direct the coming movie, “the batman.”“performing this role demands focus, p ion and the very best performance i can give,” affleck said in a statement monday night. “i cannot do both jobs to the level they require.”affleck — who will still play the title character as well as produce and co-write “the batman” — has had solid outings as an actor-director before with films like “the town” and “argo,” which won the academy award for best picture in 2013.but for other actor-directors, the road to critical and box-office glory is strewn with as many failures as successes. here’s a look at some of the best-known projects and how they fared.denz

from parker to gibson, hollywood’s sliding scale of justice


new york (ap) — as the final votes pour in ahead of the academy awards’ tuesday afternoon deadline, hollywood is drawing to a close an awards season that has, from nate parker to mel gibson, often been a confounding morality play.by even movie standards, the dramatic swings of fortune are hard to believe. parker, hailed as an oscar sure-thing at last year’s sundance film festival, saw his “the birth of a nation” torpedoed by the fallout of a tragic 18-year-old rape allegation against him. but just as parker was disappearing, mel gibson, a pariah for the last decade, engineered an unexpected comeback that culminated with six nominations for his “hacksaw ridge,” including best picture.hollywood’s scales of justice, never particularly scientific, have rarely been harder to read.the sometimes
