The Tanforan Shopping Center, just off Interstate 380 in San Bruno, is a generic shopping mall, the kind you can find anywhere in the country. If it weren’t for a small commemorative rock garden and plaque near the main entrance, there would be no sign of the fact that during the spring and summer of 1942, 7,800 Japanese Americans from San Francisco and elsewhere in the Bay Area were incarcerated in horse stalls and makeshift barracks here after being forcibly removed from their homes. Their only crime was being Japanese. The mass relocation of San Francisco’s Nikkei residents (Nikkei refers to all persons of Japanese descent, whether American citizens or not) was set in motion Feb. 19, 1942, 2½ months after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which mandated the evacuation of all persons of Japanese descent from the West Coast. In the weeks after Executive Order 9066 was posted, San Francisco’s … [Read more...] about 7,800 imprisoned in San Bruno for just 1 crime: being Japanese

The end of the year traditionally brings a wealth of best-of candidates, as major studios and studio-affiliated arthouse labels unveil their most austere and decorously appointed films for awards consideration. Yet, a few stray winners aside, we in The A.V. Club film staff found ourselves looking further back in the year for list-makers, including a handful of uncommonly ambitious summer blockbusters, several festival holdovers, and the steady supply of indie and foreign films that slipped in and out of theaters, often woefully unnoticed. Fortunately, 2010 was strong enough in the front end to make up for the back, and we wound up finding plenty of films to rally behind, with such a diverse range of styles, budgets, and themes that it’s impossible to draw a thread to connect them all. So here, for your consideration, are a bunch of films we really liked. The Top 15 Advertisement 15. The Kids Are All RightLisa Cholodenko (Laurel Canyon,High Art) delivered another smart, … [Read more...] about The best films of 2010
Following the success of Disney's live-action takes on Maleficent and Cinderella, the studio is developing a remake of their 1998 animated hit Mulan. The studio picked up the screenplay by writing team Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek, which centers on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, the female warrior who was at the center of Disney's animated adventure. Chris Bender and J.C. Spink are on board to produce the Mulan live-action remake. The original Mulan centered on the title character, voiced by Ming-Na Wen, who disguises herself as a man to take her ailing father's place on the battlefield. With the help of her beloved dragon sidekick Mushu (voiced by Eddie Murphy), Mulan becomes a brave warrior who becomes one of her country's most honored heroines. The original Mulan voice cast also included Miguel Ferrer, Harvey Fierstein, June Foray, James Hong, Pat Morita, B.D. Wong and George Takei. Mulan earned over $304 million worldwide during its theatrical release, and spawned the 2004 … [Read more...] about Mulan Live-Action Movie Planned at Disney
The Leftovers Don’t Be Ridiculous Season 3 Episode 2 Editor’s Rating 5 stars ***** «Previous Next» Carrie Coon as Nora, Justin Theroux as Kevin. Photo: Courtesy of HBO “Weird” and “like nothing else on television” are two descriptors that need to be purged from the critical vocabulary immediately. Believe me, I’d be first against the wall were that to happen, because quite frankly a lot of stuff on the air these days is weird and isn’t like anything else on television and at a certain point you have to call it like you see it. But simply saying so sells the work short, even before those descriptions are used to, say, lump an empty-calorie sci-fi and/or superhero and/or horror pastiche like Legion together with the trailblazing surrealist exploration of abuse and exploitation that was (and hopefully will be) Twin Peaks. The best “weird” shows aren’t just zany or confusing — they … [Read more...] about Recap: Perfect Strangers

Children who grow up in stressful environments often have elevated levels of "the stress hormone” cortisol, which can impair cognitive development. New research shows that some children growing up with adversity actually have low levels of cortisol, which is also linked to compromised cognitive functioning. A new study has identified how specific levels of cortisol affect the cognitive development of children who are growing up with the stress associated with family adversity, living in poverty, and/or homelessness. The June 2015 study, “Tracing Differential Pathways of Risk: Associations Among Family Adversity, Cortisol, and Cognitive Functioning in Childhood,” was conducted at the University of Rochester, the University of Minnesota, and Mt. Hope Family Center, and published in the journal Child Development. The statistics of childhood poverty are alarming.
