"Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet."

A view of the arts in the "style of the moment"
UNDER THE SKIN
A provocative, compelling, sometimes maddening film, Under the Skin
is not for those who have difficulty with ambiguity along the lines of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
It's a sci-fi movie about aliens that harvest humans in Scotland. Although we see how they go about this, the why is left up the audience. The movie can be appreciated both literally and metaphorically. Yet all we have is what the filmmakers give us on the screen, unless one has read the book.
BLUE MAN GROUP
Creepy, blue, yet entertaining is how I would describe the painted trio better known as the Blue Man Group. Belk Theater was packed with giggly, squirmy little kids accompanied by giggly, squirmy adults for the opening of this production, originally formed in 1987 as a tribute to '80s culture. Several men rotate characters throughout the tour and those that participated in Charlotte's show really delivered. Beginning with techno beats bumping so hard I could feel the vibration in my chest
