Transformers 3: Dark Of The Moon (PG-13)


In this third installment, we learn that the NASA space program was a cover-up that allowed the crew of Apollo 11 to explore the alien ruins on the dark side of the moon. Sam (Shia LaBeouf) returns with a new girlfriend (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley). And once again, the Autobots (our friends) take on the Decepticons (not our friends), with humanity and downtown Chicago caught in the middle. Destruction ensues. Michael Bay continues to offer up soulless and frenetic trash.

The oil paintings of L.A.-based artist Red possess an otherworldly quality. They are at once dark and vibrant; their figurative subject matter—goldfish, Buddha, demons and dragons—is spiritual, psychedelic, eerie, Eastern. These images seem to suggest a lifetime enmeshed in the natural and philosophical crucible of Southeast Asia. But the inscrutability of these works is matched by their creator’s effort to obscure his own biography.
