closed to the public. Reyes, a guest
artist from Wayne, has taken over
most of gallery director Julia
Noyes’ studio to exhibit his works.
Reyes is known for his commis
sioned portraits, but Friday’s show
will include a broader range of sub
jects — paintings of everything
from swans to a coffee carafe.
While soaking up friendly af
fection from Noyes, his friend of
more than 30 years (“The show’s
around Valentine’s because Carlos
is our sweetheart,” Noyes said),
Reyes explained how he made “The

The painting came from photo
graphs he took at a harvester show
in Grand Island, Reyes said. “I like
to hang out at places like that and
just find the characters,” he said.
The character in the foreground
with the baseball cap and hands
stuck in his pockets struck Reyes
the most. He liked how the man’s
stance added to the mood of “some
thing impending that I don’t know
whether I want to hang around for.”
The faces in “The Gathering”
and Reyes’ other non-portraits are
deliberately left indistinct so view

Reyes most about “The Gathering”
is the light streaming from behind
the men and through their legs.
For those who don’t know him
from his many appearances in Lin

Set sights on ‘Trainspotting’ for superb new release
By Gerry Beltz
Yee-haw! There are a whole lotta new re
leases this week, and most of them are well
worth the rental price. The pick of the week
helps celebrate (what else?) Valentine’s Day.
“A Very Brady Sequel” — Well, they sure
didn’t waste any time slapping this flick to
gether, given the success of the original.
Now, the whole flaky family and crew is on
vacation in Hawaii when Carol’s (Shelley Long)
ex-boyfriend shows up and wants to steal her
Some laughs, but it looks like a rush job on
the script. Rent it only if you’re desperate for
comedy or big lapels.
“First Kid”—Sinbad plays a secret service
agent who is determined to help a youngster
learn how to have a good time.
iep, more oi sinoad s antics, out the kids
will like this one. Rent this one ahead of “A
Very Brady Sequel” if you need some comedy.
“Trainspotting” — One of 1996’s best re
leases was a Scottish import—based on Irvine
Welsh’s masterful novel of the same.name —
that told the story of heroin addicts slugging it
out in the streets of Edinburgh, Glasgow and
London. But because of its subject matter and
its sickeningly realistic examination of the drug
subculture, “Trainspotting” also may prove to
be one of the Academy Awards’ most neglected
films of the year.
The main character is Mark Renton (Ewan
McGregor), a quick-minded lowlife who spends
one half of the film trying to kick his habit,
and the other half trying to get a fix to feed it.
The supporting cast, particularly the frenetic
performance by Ewen Bremner, rounds the film
out to near perfection.
This is a harshly told, bitingly funny film
that gets better each time you see it, so be sure
to hit the stores hard looking for this one.
“Feeling Minnesota” — This not-sp-funny
romantic comedy falls victim to a plot with so
many twists and turns that it’s a miracle it
doesn’t collapse in on itself.
Keanu Reeves stars as a lonely guy who runs
off with his brother’s new bride (Cameron
Diaz). And as if that wasn’t enough to cause
some family problems, his brother works for a
mob boss (Delroy Undo), who is determined
to get his trusty employee’s wife back at any
The expected madness and hilarity ensue,
but the fast-paced story line doesn’t allow any
time for any real character development, and
the whole film degenerates into a series of
loosely connected anecdotes and half-baked
“Grace of My Heart”—Deana Douglas stars
in this film about an up-and-coming singer who
must maneuver her way not only through the
music industry, but also through the hordes of
men (including Matt Dillon and John T\irturro)
who try to get a piece of her success.
Director/screenwriter Alison Anders (whose
“Gas, Food, Lodging” showed much more
promise than this delivered) unfortunately lets
her well-placed characters and the fine abili
ties of her cast become muddled in an over
wrought story line.
But the cast alone makes this film worth
seeing, and if you don’t mind waiting a little
bit longer, this one will arrive at the Mary
Riepma Ross Film Theater on Feb. 20 for a
two-week big screen engagement.
