Correction
Wednesday's article "Reporter Helps Catch Suspect After Police Blow Stakeout" incorrectly stated that Nate Tabak followed a suspected thief west on Bancroft Way and then south on Telegraph Avenue.

An Odyssey of Existence, Moments & ‘Hours'


Civil War Extreme-Beards, Prayer and an Intermission
Ever since "Saving Private Ryan" began a flood of war films in 1998, every conflict from the Revolutionary War to Desert Storm has appeared on screen. However, few of these films accurately depict their subject. "Gods and Generals," a Civil War epic, tries to break this pattern; clocking in at 3 hours and 45 minutes, this film seems as long as the war-how's that for historical accuracy?

Random Cinema-Van Sant Flirts With Eastern Europe Styles
Gus Van Sant, director of the doggedly avant-garde "Gerry," which opens in Berkeley next week, showed up at the PFA last Thursday dressed in a pocket T and old-school windbreaker.

The Junket-A Journalist Examines his Specimens
Like monkeys they were ushered up onto the podium reluctantly taking their seats. Subject V, one Mr. Vince Vaughn, lights a cigarette from a pack of American Spirits. Subject W, one Mr. Luke Wilson, chews his lower lip while downing a glass of Alka Seltzer water. Subject F, one Mr. Will Ferrell, looks hesitantly into the on looking crowd of observers and states into his microphone "the fourth and the fifth floors of the hotel have been searched. No biological, or chemical warfare agents were found. Thank you for your patience as we continue to search the hotel." Subject F shows an aptitude towards humor. Subject V lights another cigarette.
