Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted

(PG) ★★★★☆

This third installment is one of the fanciest, most carefully assembled cartoons ever put on screen. This film has a creative, off-kilter vibe that sets it apart from its peers. Alex (Ben Stiller), Marty (Chris Rock), Gloria (Jada Pinkett Smith) and the gang are still stranded and yearning to get back where they belong. They wind up hiding in a traveling circus with Capt. DuBois (Frances McDormand) hot on their trail. This one’s almost too good to leave to the kids.

More Than Portrait-Deep

By Cynthia Behr Warso

In her new show at Kleven Contemporary, Life Room-Blue Screen, Emily Scott paints nudes in a traditional, yet unidealized manner reminiscent of Lucian Freud, or perhaps Alice Neel. However, Scott’s colorful and irreverent backgrounds collide with the stodginess of the discipline, creating a sense of dynamism. It’s a great homecoming for the ex-pat’s first return visit to Las Vegas in nearly two years.
