Daly City's Sam Rockwell Talks 'Conviction,' Movies Overlooked and His Unwavering Passion for Acting

What if you made a movie and nobody saw it? The studios didn’t promote it. The theaters didn’t play it. It died a quiet and overlooked death. Sam Rockwell knows the feeling too well.

That didn’t happen to a surefire juggernaut like this spring’s Iron Man 2, in which the Daly City native played a corporate rival to the unsinkable Tony Stark. And it probably won’t happen to Conviction, directed by onetime Ghost star Tony Goldwyn and inspired by the true story of Betty Anne Waters, a Massachusetts wife and mother who put herself through law school in a desperate bid to overturn her brother’s conviction for murder.

Review: Mumford & Sons @ The Warfield

Last night was a big night for San Francisco: the Giants won, and Mumford & Sons played at the Warfield. Lucky for the band, the game wrapped up before they took to the stage, marked by a surge of cheers from all of the orange and black-clad Mumford fans glued to their droids on the dance floor.  But Mumford was forgiving of the distraction, and even encouraged the random chanting (“Let’s go, Giants!”) when it arose, no matter how awkward (the band was brought out for the encore to a chorus of: “Let’s go, Mumford!”).

ODC Kicks Off its Season with Kunst-Stoff & LEVYdance

Two experimental dance companies open the inaugural season at ODC's freshly-renovated digs with a program that takes the traditional and contemporary and shakes it like James Bond’s martini.

If you’ve ever cursed your lizard brain, Our Body Remembers investigates those primal caveman tendencies - genetic intelligence passed down from ancestors that seeps into our modern lives. Like the fully rational, if not entirely relevant, fear of saber tooth tigers. LEVYdance uses ethnic Persian dance to explore visceral responses that may or may not impact our daily lives and choices.
