The Battle for Gotham: New York in the Shadow of Robert Moses and Jane Jacobs.

Host Bruce Silverman speaks with Roberta Gratz, author of "The Battle for Gotham: New York in the Shadow of Robert Moses and Jane Jacobs." Urban critic and journalist Roberta Brandes Gratz argues that New York City regenerated itself because of the waning power of Robert Moses. His decline in the late 1960s and the drying up of big government funding for urban renewal projects allowed New York to organically regenerate according to the precepts defined by Jane Jacobs in her classic, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, and in contradiction to Moses's urban philosophy.

Die German Stunde — the first “German Hour” on KBOO

How much do you really know about Germans?
Why is going naked on a beach or in a public park in Germany okay and why are there restrictions here? Is the going naked movement gaining strength in Oregon and could Germany serve as a model? How do Germans deal with nudity and is there a difference between baring it in the eastern part of Germany versus the west? Germany has fully developed single payer healthcare, so why does a German who worked in Portland and went back to Germany yearn to return here? And then there’s the World Cup.

Trash Humpers, now at the Hollywood Theater

Trash Humpers (2009)
Director: Harmony Korine
With: Harmony Korine, Rachel Korine, Charles Ezell, Chris Gantry, etc.

Harmony Korine is a talented film-maker with a big flaw: he can’t get past his need to be shocking and/or confounding to his audience.  Unless I miss my guess at just who his audience is.  There are those who consider him a genius, and not a misguided snotnose.
He is like a kid who writes dirty words on walls with brilliant penmanship.  No matter how admirable the craft, it’s still just a bunch of self-indulgent crap.

Solitary Man
Director: Brian Koppelman & David Levien
With: Michael Douglas, Susan Sarandon, Jenna Fischer, Danny DeVito, Mary-Louise Parker, Imogen Poots, Jesse Eisenberg

Despite the trite set-up and the workman-like directing, the film rises on the strength of the acting.  There is a surprise, or two, in the story, but you can see what’s coming almost from the beginning.
Ben Kalmen (Douglas) is a 60-year-old former auto dealer who used to be the biggest in the NY area, but he has lost everything because of personal failings, including his wife (Sarandon).  Among these failings is being unfaithful to any woman he is involved with, and which he self-justifies because he may die at any time.
