Native Cinema in Santa Fe—For the fifth year in a row Santa Fe's Center for Contemporary Arts will be presenting its Native Cinema Showcase. Taking place Thursday, Aug. 18, through Sunday, Aug. 21, the Showcase celebrates the best in new and classic films and videos by and about Native Americans. This year's Showcase will also incorporate visual arts and performances, including an opening night concert with Gary Farmer and the Troublemakers. Among the films to be screened are Kate Montgomery's Christmas in the Clouds (a screwball comedy set in a struggling, Native-owned ski resort), Chris Eyre's Edge of the World (based on the true story of a girls' basketball team in small-town New Mexico) and Roberta Grossman's Homeland (a documentary profile of five Native American activists fighting to protect their lands from environmental hazards). The Showcase is produced by the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian and the CCA. For a complete schedule of events, log on to ccasantafe.org. The CCA is located at 1050 Old Pecos Trail.

Head-On (Gegen die Wand)

Punk rock romance mixes sexuality, multiculturalism and substance abuse into one heady cocktail

Head-On is a romantic comedy with razor blade edges--a sexy, sweaty, blood-stained love story that's more Sid and Nancy than Bogart and Bacall.

Hulkamania Slams Cable!

“Hogan Knows Best” on VH1

As has become unmistakably clear to even the most casual VH1 viewers, the channel has phased out 99 percent of its purely music-related programming (music videos are now given the coveted Mondays at 3 a.m. time slot) and chosen to focus its energies on all-out celebrity worship.

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 18

“Celebrity Poker Showdown” (Bravo 6 p.m.) This once-cool show has officially jumped the shark by inviting “reality TV” stars like Jonny Fairplay, Trishelle Cannatella and Omarosa to compete against each other this season.

“Hidden Howie: The Private Life of a Public Nuisance” (Bravo 9 p.m.) So you're telling me that both Paulie Shore and Howie Mandel have their own TV shows now? Isn't there a list somewhere to prevent this sort of thing? ... I'm warning you, the second Carrot Top gets his own weekly show, I'm outta here.
