In the tradition of THE BIG CHILL, William Hurt (TUCK EVERLASTING, CHANGING LANES) and Harvey Keitel (PULP FICTION, U-571) head an all-star cast in this unforgettably fun and entertaining motion picture! A group of people's lives intertwine when a New York cigar store manager, Auggie (Keitel), befriends them. Among them is a writer who can't write (Hurt), a reluctant father hiding from his past (Forest Whitaker -- PANIC ROOM), a streetwise teen with an unusual identity crisis, and Auggie's long-lost ex-girlfriend (Stockard Channing -- TV's THE WEST WING), who returns with some surprising news! Critics and audiences hailed SMOKE for its offbeat humor, unexpected wit, and dazzling performances -- you'll cheer it too!
It's refreshing to see a film in which the writer receives equal credit with the director, showing that the dialogue actually means something. So it is with Smoke, a film about a New York quilt of contemporary characters who cross paths in a corner smoke shop, told in straightforward way by a talented acting group. Author Paul Auster and director Wayne Wang (The Joy Luck Club) worked on the story for years before it reached the screen. Their characters include Paul (William Hurt, in a good role again), a grief-stricken novelist; Auggie (Harvey Keitel), the shop's owner with a secret passion; Ruby (Stockard Channing), Auggie's long-ago girlfriend; and Rashid (Harold Perrineau Jr.), a teenager who is befriended by Paul and seeks his estranged father (Forest Whitaker). All the characters are great storytellers, whether it be out of loneliness, necessity, or just nature. Like Auster's The Music of Chance, the movie has accomplished an amazing feat: it makes us feel as if we are reading a serious novel, not watching a movie. --Doug Thomas
Pongo and Veda Sharing a Bed
A rare moment. This picture was taken a little over a month before the house we were renting up north burnt down. Imagine being two hours away and getting a phone call from your husband who's 20 minutes away (from the house) telling you the house is on fire. I couldn't do anything. My first thought was of Veda and Pongo. I feel tremendous guilt for having put Veda in a crate just before I left the house - surely, she didn't make it out. And how would a pampered cat possibly survive a fire? I don't know what to do. I call Darren 5 minutes later, asking where he was...still 15 minutes away. I'm dazed, I'm sweating, I'm pacing. He finally calls me from the house and tells me it's completely gone...the dog is dead and they can't find the cat but maybe he ran out in the chaos. The first people on the scene tried to break down the front door when they heard Veda but had no success because the crate was blocking it. The broke the window next to it and went inside. They let Veda out and moved the crate and opened the door. After they got her outside, she ran back in. I start crying about Veda but not as hysterical as I think I would be had I thought about the possibility earlier. Weird. Still traumatic, though. I leave after I talk to Darren but not before calling my mother, who is feeling terrible for the pets. I call my cousin and tell her what happened. I don't feel any sense of comfort - in fact, it makes me cry harder talking about it. I'm on the road for ten minutes when Darren calls again and tells me that Veda made it out. She must have ran to the basement after she ran back in. I remember asking him if he was sure and was she there next to him. He answers yes she is and she's talking to all the fire fighters - yeah, that's what he said. I call my mom and cousin back and tell them the news. My cousin thinks I'm joking. Somewhere in the back of my mind I know Pongo is okay too, I just don't know where. I talk to Darren every so often on the phone on my way back. The trip is going along smoothly - I figured it would go on for eternity, under the circumstances. There's no real change in the news - still no cat. Well, except for the fact that we have a place to stay due to the generosity of friends. Yeah, we're not going to be homeless! Finally, I'm close enough that we need to decide where to meet, etc... Darren is going to take Veda to where we will be staying the night. He can't hang around there much longer because there's nothing to do. He's talked to everyone and it's not yet safe to go inside. I decide to go to the store and get essentials - stuff you hardly ever buy all at once. I buy dog food, a water dish and a food dish but what about cat food? Well, it won't hurt - we can leave it outside in case he comes back. Good plan. So I buy cat food, a water dish and a food dish. What if he does come back? Okay, so I buy some cat litter. Where do I put the litter. Okay, I buy a litter pan. This goes on and on...and in the back of my mind I'm thinking I may be doing this in vain - what if we find him dead in the house? Well, maybe we can get another cat sooner or later. I don't want another cat, though. If I'm going to have a cat it's going to be Pongo. I managed to spend over $100 on essentials in the span of 15 minutes. I knew I wasn't being frantic but I conclude essentials, especially pet essentials, are just plain expensive. I check out and load up my car. Darren calls and tells me his boss got a call from one of the firefighters telling him that they found the cat (it's a small town). They found him in the basement. I think he ran down there as soon as the smoke detector went off and was able to avoid heavy smoke. He was wet and dirty but looked fine. Wow, buying all this stuff wasn't bad luck! Anyway, the house was a mess but most of the stuff in the basement was okay because it was stored in Rubbermaid totes and the basement only suffered some water damage, mostly flooding from the hoses. Great. The reason they were in the basement and in totes was because we never used them. So essentially, our crap was saved! All of the fire fighters decide to help us by removing ALL the stuff out of the basement and setting it outside - really I appreciate the help but you really don't have to haul that stuff out. Thanks. Now we have to move our crap - just to get rid of it later. To be fair, we were able to save some other stuff in a room almost untouched by fire or smoke - just water. We lost all our furniture, most of the kitchen stuff and most of our clothes. Luckily, we were able to save most of our valuable stuff. I lost my digital camera (not a huge deal) but was able to save my film SLR and my vintage Kodak Retinette IA because it was on the bottom of a tote bag, beneath a stack of clothes and in its original leather case - no water damage. The verdict is still out on my film SLR. It was one of the first things taken out of the house but must have suffered some heavy smoke damage, no water dam
The film opens by revealing that a cemetery in rural Texas has been vandalized; several gravesites have been desecrated, the bodies dug up and arranged into bizarre "sculptures". Sally Hardesty (Marilyn Burns) and her invalid, wheelchair-bound brother, Franklin (Paul A. Partain), are concerned that their grandfather's grave may have been vandalized, so they travel to the site with three of their friends, Sally's boyfriend Jerry (Allen Danziger), her best friend Pam (Teri McMinn), and Pam's boyfriend Kirk (William Vail). When they discover that the grave is intact, they decide to visit the old family homestead. Along the way, they pass a slaughterhouse and Franklin describes how cattle used to be killed with a sledgehammer, and now they use an air gun. Shortly afterwards, they pick up a skinny, strange-looking hitch hiker (Edwin Neal) who exhibits bizarre behavior. After inviting the group back to his house for dinner, an invitation they all decline, the hitchhiker takes a photo of Franklin with an instant polarid camara, and demands payment for it. When Franklin refuses, the man crumples the photo, sets it on fire, and cuts his own hand. The guys manage to throw him out of the van, but not before he cuts Franklin with the knife, too. Before they can drive away, he smears blood on their van. Running low on fuel, they stop at a rural filling station only to have the strange-looking old man who runs it (Jim Siedow) tell them that the tanks are empty and that he's waiting for the gas tanker to show up. When he learns their destination is the old Hardesty home, he advises the young people against going there. They buy some barbeque sandwiches from the man and depart for the family home. While Sally and Pam go off to look through the abandoned house, Franklin finds it hard to get around the old place due to his wheelchair, and he is frustrated by the fun that the two couples seem to be having. Franklin gives Pam and Kirk directions to an old swimming hole that used to be nearby, but they find it completely dried up. Kirk hears the sound of a gas generator nearby and gets the idea to find out where it is and barter for some gasoline. Following the sound, they discover a large farm house surrounded by numerous abandonded vehicles, partially hidden by a large tarp. Kirk finds a human tooth on the front porch and frightens Pam with it. He gets no answer to a knock at the door, and he is lured inside by strange animal sounds. He goes into the house and in the space of a few moments, an enormous man in a weird mask (Gunnar Hansen) appears and murders him with a blow to the head via sledgehammer. The man, known as "Leatherface" due to his mask made out of a human face, drags the body into a back room. Pam becomes restless when Kirk does not return, and she goes into the house to look for him. She stumbles into a room that is filled with human and animal bones. A live chicken dangles in a small bird cage. Weird sculptures made out of human skulls hang from the ceiling. Furniture is adorned with human bones and skulls. The floor is covered with bits of bones and feathers. Pam begins to retch and starts screaming, when Leatherface appears and lunges for her. She runs out onto the porch but he catches her, carrying her kicking and screaming back into the house, where he savagely hangs her on a meat hook through her back. While she hangs there, she can see Leatherface dismembering the dead body of Kirk with a chainsaw. Back at the Hardesty house, Sally and the others start to wonder why Pam and Kirk have not returned. As the sun begins to set, Jerry sets out in the general direction and also comes upon the house. He is alerted by the blanket that Kirk left hanging on the front porch, and he goes into the house. He discovers Pam locked inside a large freezer, still alive but convulsing and near death. She lunges out of the freezer just as Leatherface appears and kills Jerry with the sledgehammer. He forces Pam's body back into the freezer and locks it again. Leatherface is distraught, apparently upset because strangers keep coming to the house. At nightfall, Sally and Franklin are forced to go after Jerry when he does not return; Jerry took the keys to the van with him when he left. Franklin refuses to wait at the van and insists that Sally push his wheelchair along the unpaved path through the woods. Before they get to the house, they are attacked by Leatherface, who murders Franklin by ramming him in the chest with a chainsaw. Sally flees in terror with Leatherface directly behind her. She gets cut on the thorny brush as she runs, eventually reaching the house; she is unaware that the house belongs to her pursuer. Sally runs upstairs as Leatherface saws through the front door to get at her. In an upstairs bedroom, she finds two dessicated figures, an old man and old woman. The woman is long dead, but the old man is still barely alive, hideously withered. Leatherface corners her on the second floor,

300-plus recipes. The only cookbook devoted to smoke-cooked barbecue, a hot trend.
Barbecue is not about grilling food fast over high heat. That's something else, delicious in its own right, but something else entirely. Barbecue is about marginal cuts of meat (for the most part), about smoke, about fires burning so low and slow you hardly ever see the flicker of a flame. Barbecue is about succulent pork ribs as dark as sin just falling off the bone and dripping with glorious sweet pork godliness. Or enjoying the effects that 12 to 18 hours of smoking has on beef brisket.
The trick is, how do you do it? How do you master a cooking technique all but ignored in favor of fast and hot? The answer lies in Smoke & Spice. Authors Jamison and Jamison provide all the information you're ever going to need to run a real barbecue. Tips and techniques abound on every page--accompanied with countless recipes that stretch the barbecue imagination. And seeing that one cannot live on barbecue alone (though that's a challenge well worth considering) there are just as many recipes included for all the good food that accompanies barbecue--from Scalloped Green Chile Potatoes to South-of-the-Border Garlic Soup to Buttermilk Onion Rings and even Bourbon Peaches. If smoke in your eyes makes your mouth water, this is the primer for you! --Schuyler Ingle
