Art or Sleaze? 'I Spit on Your Grave' Remake Straddles Both Lines

As children, we are taught to turn the other cheek, but who can deny the visceral thrill of richly deserved revenge, presented in Steven R. Monroe’s I Spit on Your Grave remake as a dish served well past the freezing point?
 
Anyone familiar with Meir Zarchi’s 1980 original – famously dismissed by Roger Ebert as “a film without a shred of artistic distinction” but hailed by others as a crude testament to feminist fortitude – should recognize the story of Jennifer, the big-city girl beaten and raped by five merciless hillbillies during a retreat in the Louisiana backwoods.
 

West Wave Dance Festival

Anchored by a few core companies, dance in San Francisco is still a constantly shifting landscape of performers breaking out as choreographers and long-term creators coming into their own - all of them in need of a place to set their dancers loose. One Monday a month, West Wave Dance Festival plucks notable and burgeoning dance-makers from the Bay Area to perform on Fort Mason’s stage - minus the burden of self-producing, something that makes even the strongest heart quaver. (You’ve seen rent in this town. Ouch.)

A Guide to Open Studios

October in San Francisco features the sundress weather we never got in July, a subsequently confusing profusion of pumpkins, and local artists opening their studios to the public in every neighborhood we have, including some you might not know existed. (Mount Davidson, anyone?) There’s so much excellent art to see in so many neighborhoods that not even the most savvy googling can unearth everything - so we recommend you go where the whim strikes you to see local art at its origin. Here are the artists and neighborhoods that strike us.

 
October 16-17 (weekend two):

Potrero Hill

Brother Size at the Magic

Octavio Solis could be called the Midas of local theater - anything he touches turns to gold. It could in turn be argued that Tarell Alvin McCraney, the gifted playwright behind Brothers Size, doesn’t need any help. But judging from audience and critical response (across the board raves) - it certainly doesn’t hurt.

Hamlet on Alcatraz

For the ultimate in theater/venue mashups, you can’t do better than Hamlet on Alcatraz. After nearly two years spent juggling logistics (and dodging pesky birds), 29-year-old director Ava Roy is using the entirety of the infamous prison island to create a memorable rendition of Shakespeare’s tormented Dane.

Art Goes Live on Market Street

Starting today, you may notice some unusual activity occurring on Market Street. Don't mistake it for the usual cast of crazies known for loitering and creating ruckus of all sorts on the sidewalk. These people aren't homeless and begging for money, but rather make up a troupe of characters telling the story of eight prominent African Americans who lived and worked near Market Street during the mid-19th century.
