Martin Funeral Home, Stuart Chapel, provided the arrangements. David F. Dusty Drew. For many years Dusty and his wife owned and operated Camp Wekeela on Bear Pond in Hartford, Maine, where young people from highly varied backgrounds spent memory-making summers having fun while absorbing life-lessons along the way. Dusty served on many town committees in Standish and was a past president of the Kiwanis Club and Watchic Lake Association.

Lucie, FL, If you want to express an idea outside of your experience and live into that, songs and art are a great place to do that, to explore an ideal or fantasy. I just talk about my experience, sometimes directly and sometimes indirectly. I get contemplative. And yet the feelings and impressions being described in the songs are quite real, and recognizable, becoming more poignant with each listen.
Perhaps in part. In any case, the cracks in the Hollywood fortifications are showing. But if streaming is indeed facilitating the long-delayed collapse of the tent-pole model, then more power to it. The year so far has been disappointing from the perspective of box-office returns, and it has been downright dreadful in terms of the so-called blockbusters themselves—another summer of sequels, side-quels, and soft reboots that has made it difficult to recall a time when big-budget superhero flicks like Dark Phoenix felt like cultural events.
Pat Brown. Rather than letting the mysteries in his film stand, or prolonging its ambiguities, Panahi prefers to signify potential plot directions and formal strategies and then promptly pivot away from them at the moment they outlast their usefulness. Sam C. But thankfully, the clever, subversive, and hugely ambitious Ash Is Purest White assuages those concerns. Peter Goldberg. Showing the same fascination with the interstices of Western and native cultures that Guerro and Jacques Toulemonde Vidal brought to Embrace of the Serpent , the story initially takes a back seat to an examination of ritual and belief.
Also, their arresting visual sense power the story in the eeriest of ways, from the sweeping vistas of desert and sky to the surreal appearance of a glistening white mansion where an ancient village once stood. Chris Barsanti. Black Mother finds Khalik Allah doubling down on his established aesthetic to bold, hypnotic ends. Christopher Gray. T he Electronic Entertainment Expo presented an industry in transition. As the current console generation winds down and new hardware is still in development, the subject of how games will be played going forward has come into question, as the technology to stream games via the cloud supplants the need for consoles or PCs.
There was no greater sign of the shake up than the absence of one of the three major console makers: Sony. The company eschewed not only their usual press conference, but any showing at all. EA also elected not to host their customary press conference , instead opting for a streamed video presentation similar to the Nintendo Direct broadcast.
As one live service game in an ocean, and created by a company with little experience making such games, Anthem was always destined to face an uphill battle; at this point, some four months after its release, turning the game around would require faith in the product and an evolving cycle of new content, both of which EA could have presented to the world here. Alas, not even a mention across the entire show. Though the somnolent minute video that capped the presentation seems to promise a cross between Uncharted and The Force Unleashed , hands-on time with the game reveals that its closest analogue is Dark Souls , given that it takes place across large open areas with bonfire equivalents the protagonist can meditate at, which inexplicably revives all enemies.
The combat feels like that of Dark Souls , with the fast-paced lightsaber duels of something like Jedi Academy replaced by slower, more precise one-on-one battles where you must manoeuver around enemies to fight them individually, and in a manner that recalls other From Software games.
Whether Jedi: Fallen Order will be as difficult as the Soulsborne titles remains to be seen, though one would assume EA would want the title to be accessible as possible, especially considering their recent and lousy track record with the franchise.
The first official E3 press conference was presented by Microsoft, which had a stellar showing of new games and announcements. New titles demonstrated include Outer Worlds , a Fallout -esque sci-fi action adventure game, a new Battletoads game featuring bright and colourful cartoonish graphics, the latest iteration of Microsoft Flight Simulator , the next chapter in the Gears of War series simply titled Gears 5 , and survival horror outing Blair Witch. If Google, or any streaming service, pulls the plug, purchased products simply go away.
Which is why Microsoft is working toward a hybrid of cloud streaming services with traditional ownership models, where gamers will own their console and their games, but can also stream them to other devices to play games on the go using the cloud. Nuclear Winter is a surprising amount of fun, a squad-based battle royale allowing players to choose where they spawn on the map and then take advantage of classic Fallout devices while fighting to become the only survivor.
For example, becoming invisible with a Stealth Boy offers a fleeting chance to get the drop on enemies or flee an area teeming with overpowered opponents, or jumping into a set of Power Armor gives more health but impedes player speed and is loud enough to give away player location. At time of writing, Bethesda have made Nuclear Winter an indefinite add-on for Fallout 76 , which gives the populace at large a reason to try Fallout More notable, though buried within the conference, was the announcement of Dying Light 2 , which looks to be an ambitious and sprawling follow-up to the original game.
It boasts expanded parkour gameplay in a new environment that changes with player choice, promising to give fans a unique experience with each playthrough. Nintendo Direct closed out the conferences, announcing two new Super Smash Bros. Finally, a new Animal Crossing was revealed, with a fresh island setting, new crafting gameplay, and the inclusion of fruit stacking. After sideline missteps like Pocket Camp , Amiibo Festival , and Happy Home Designer , a new Switch entry seems to be exactly the shot in the arm that this beloved series needs to get back on track.
Indeed, latest conference was as fresh, joyous, and deranged as its predecessors. E3 ran from June 11— The effect of the Toy Story films is practically primal. These films, with scant manipulation and much visual and comic invention, thrive on giving toys a conscience and imagining what adventures they have when we turn our backs to them. Unless, that is, they had a douchebag older brother in the family who spent most of his childhood speaking in funny accents and hoarding his piggy-bank money to buy his first hot rod.
Ed Gonzalez. Kurt Osenlund. The Good Dinosaur has poignant moments, particularly when a human boy teaches Arlo, the titular protagonist, how to swim in a river, and there are funny allusions to how pitiless animals in the wild can be. But the film abounds in routine, featherweight episodes that allow the hero to predictably prove his salt to his family, resembling a cross between City Slickers and Finding Nemo. Arlo is a collection of insecurities that have been calculatedly assembled so as to teach children the usual lessons about bravery, loyalty, and self-sufficiency.
Chuck Bowen. But, while admittedly low on the Pixar totem pole, Monsters University proves a vibrant and compassionate precursor to Monsters, Inc. The template turns out to be a natural fit for the Cars universe, organically integrating racing into the fabric of the film and rendering it with a visceral sense of speed, excitement, and struggle.
Fails and Talbot live and breathe their city, even as its dominant tech industry is wiping away its offbeat majesty. T he surrealistic verve of The Last Black Man in San Francisco often makes the film feel as if it exists apart from time and reality. Gentrification moves beyond serving as just an empty thematic buzzword and emerges as a process that takes tangible effects in its characters. As Fails, playing a version of himself, attempts to reclaim an old Victorian home built by his grandfather, he must directly confront the social and economic forces leading to his own obsolescence in the city that made him.
Was the short film American Paradise your first collaboration together? Joe Talbot: No, actually, we made movies together since high school. One of our first movies was called Last Stop Livermore. Or just trying to level up a bit? JT: We did a concept trailer for Last Black Man five years ago that was closer to proof of concept for this. It was essentially Jimmie skateboarding through the city.
That was the first thing we did. We put it online not expecting anything to happen. But we started getting emails from people who wanted to join and help us. It was a chance for us to come together and make something en route to making the feature. JT: A little bit, yeah! I had never been on a set. Part of it was that I knew I was gonna fuck up in some ways, so I wanted to lessen the chance of that. You mentioned there being a long tracking shot in the trailer, and a lot of those shots made it into the feature. JT: Yeah, I think the city lends itself to them in some ways.
Jimmie Fails: At the time that he did it, I thought it was very well put together. He edited and scored it himself. It makes sense why people reached out when they saw it. He did a good job. JT: Me, Jimmie, Khaliah, and a group of other people who saw that concept trailer became our film family. We spent these years working on it together. Then, Plan B saw our work, read the script, and we spent a little more time further developing it with them. They came on to produce it and went to A24 to finance it.
JF: We had big dreams! JT: It was an ambitious movie. It still felt in a way like a bigger version of the movies we made as teens, just with more people and more cameras. How did you all come to determine the visual or tonal language for the film? It seems like the story came first since it has such personal roots, but was the poetic and surreal nature of the project always evident? JF: I think that just speaks to our imaginations as people.
