Who's Uncle Graham?—Filmmaker Candy Jones takes viewers on a humorous, but insightful 60-year tour through New Mexico's nuclear history in her new documentary Do It for Uncle Graham. The film will screen on Saturday, March 27, at 11 a.m. at the Guild Cinema in Nob Hill. Exploring her "big three" topics—denial, deception and creative communication—writer/director/narrator Jones takes us from Trinity to Hiroshima to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant to examine some well-known and some not-so-well-known events in our state's history. Interviews include former Secretary of the Interior Stuart Udall, Navajo Tribal President Joe Shirley and New Mexico Interior Departments James Bearzi. The film is inspired by Jones' relative, Uncle Graham, a former State Legislator during New Mexico's pioneer days. For more information on the film and the screening, log on to

Film Review

Jersey Girl

Making lemonade out of unwanted lemons

Ben Affleck has had an amazing career, nailing roles in hit films such as Good Will Hunting, Armageddon, Dogma and Changing Lanes. He's got the ability to play the jerk as well as the compassionate guy, but when it comes to romantic characters Affleck should leave them to the experts instead of getting in over his head the way he did in Gigli, and now Jersey Girl.

Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better

“Kenny vs. Spenny” on GSN

Following the “Great Blackout of 2004”—during which all Viacom channels were removed from the DISH Network service for a torturous 48-hour period—I found myself scraping the bottom of my satellite dish, looking for some small scraps of entertainment. At the time, there was every possibility that I would never see the likes of Comedy Central, Nickelodeon or MTV2 ever again. Since life without “Spongebob Squarepants” was far too dark to contemplate, I flipped channels searching for solace in some heretofore-undiscovered gem. I can't say I found very many of them, but I did spend a bit of time checking out some stations I'd previously remote controlled my way right past.

Week in Sloth

Thursday 25

“Rumsfeld's Rules of War” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) Creepy Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld gets his own one-hour biography on ABC. Maybe, if we're lucky, they'll take us on a tour of the coffin he sleeps in during the day.

Friday 26

“Clone Wars” (Cartoon Network 9 p.m.) CN finally gets around to launching the final 10 episodes of its animated Star Wars micro-series. Starting at 9 p.m., you can catch the first five episodes. The next five launch at 10. At 10:30, you get to see the brand new chapter 11. The final episodes play out over the next few nights. Chances are this Genndy (“Dexter's Laboratory”) Tartakovsky cartoon is gonna be better than Star Wars III, so enjoy it while you can.

Austin Stories

A Trip to the SXSW Film Festival and Conference

Cannes is the prestigious film festival. Hollywood goes there to rub elbows with Europeans and to prove how arty it is. Sundance is the trendy film festival. Hollywood goes there to see and be seen. Toronto is the industry film festival. Hollywood goes there to sell product and to promote its upcoming slate of movies. Which leaves Austin's annual South by Southwest Film Festival and Conference with one distinction. SXSW is the cool film fest.
