Downside up.

Directed by Peter Ghesquière

The world is populated only by people with Down syndrome. One day, a boy is born who is different. He is not ‘normal’, because he looks a little bit different and behaves a little bit unusual.

W🌍RLD MAP Belgium

An intriguing if flawed short about a world where everyone has Down Syndrome and what would happen if someone was born who was different. It's not afraid to use stereotypes to make it's point but it does so with warmth and humour that ultimately leads us to look at our own definition of normal.

Review by theoaustin ★★★★

Directed by Nick Mullen.

There’s a red light district for hugging and, having given birth to a son not affected by Down Syndrome, his parents search their apartment in a desperate attempt to find his missing chromosome. Unreal - what a terrible idea for a short film.

Ryan

Review by Ryan ★★½

this felt weird, I felt very conflicted. its extremely well made, to the cinematography, to the audio, to its structure. its very Wes Anderson in terms of aesthetic.

but it also felt like "hey look how goofy and silly down syndrome individuals are. the doctor drinks his choccy wocky from a big cup and straw." :/

downside up movie review

Nancy Kelly

"Downside UP" is about America's largest museum of contemporary art, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA), which opened in 1999 in an enormous abandoned factory in the filmmaker's hometown, North Adams, Massachusetts. This first person documentary captures the struggle of the people of North Adams in their redefinition of their community and puzzling with their role in an alien form of expression: contemporary art. Told primarily through the eyes of the filmmaker and her family, most of whom worked in the factory before it closed, "Downside UP" renders the subtle changes in the spirit of a region from the intimate view of the kitchen table. The film does not cheer-lead. It is about hope, however - the tentative, dangerous notion of hope in a town that was widely viewed as hopeless.

downside up movie review

Now streaming on:

The personal essay film is a tricky genre, because when you get right down to it, who cares? Sure, there is a brotherhood of man and all that, but is it such that we’ll be interested enough in a brother’s struggles that we’re willing to sit with them for a while in a movie theater, not to mention shell out money for the experience?

These questions represent perhaps crass generalizations that crowd out the potentially dire and potentially universal themes and narratives that a personal documentary can encompass, but you get the idea. And the idea applies with particular pertinence to this movie, “Flipside,” which winds up making us care about the existential crisis of a white, possibly upper-middle-class male with no health issues, an apparently lovely family, a high-end profession in a form of filmmaking, and a lot more to be happy about.

The writer-director of “Flipside,” Chris Wilcha , pulls us in through indirection. He starts the movie with a portrait of Herman Leonard, a music photographer, who sits in a gallery surrounded by his portraits of the likes of Nat “King” Cole and Chet Baker and muses that “every life is a trip” and “you are the captain of your boat.” These platitudes gain some real weight when Leonard tells us he’s dying. Wilcha then informs us that the footage we’re watching is from a documentary he started but never finished. Turns out he's got a bunch of them.

“Flipside” then depicts how this state of affairs came to be. Wilcha presents a brisk account of his early years, the no-sell-out grunge ethos he grew up with as a Gen Xer, and how, upon taking a corporate job at Columbia House, he interrogated a system he despised from the inside, actually finishing an eventually well-regarded 2000 documentary “The Target Shoots First.” Predictions that he could be the Gen-X Michael Moore ran headlong into Wilcha’s need to make a living, which led to ostensibly meaningful jobs like a gig at “This American Life.” But largely, Wilcha made commercials. Becoming the thing he beheld and disdained.

Seeking something like redemption or legitimacy or ... well, meaning, Wilcha found his way back to a record store in Pompton Lakes called Flipside, where he had a job as a teenager. (A Jersey boy myself, I’ve actually set foot in the joint at least once.) Its proprietor, referred to throughout only by his first name, Dan, is, like Wilcha, something of a hoarder. This gives the spot its distinct flavor but also makes it an awkward business in the digital age. Wilcha’s initial resolve to make a film to help the business diffuses over time and becomes another unfinished project.

Given that this is a finished movie, there is a story here, one with a conclusion. And one that pulls in a lot of notable names. Judd Apatow , also the movie’s executive producer, is here. He’s the guy who got Wilcha to move to Los Angeles in the first place, inadvertently setting the filmmaker’s boat in the direction of advertising work. (He also provides one of the movie’s paradoxical axioms: “It’s not hoarding if all your shit is awesome.”) “Deadwood” creator David Milch figures. So does Floyd Vivino, aka Uncle Floyd, the Jersey cult legend whose oddball VHF television show entranced the artistic cognoscenti across the Hudson to the extent that David Bowie , seen here in archival concert footage, wrote a song in which Floyd and his puppet Oogie are talismanic personae. All of whom address, in some way or another, the question of how one does work that’s meaningful in a world that often seems hell-bent on squelching meaning. Whatever “Flipside” ultimately “means,” it’s ninety minutes well, and often amusingly and movingly, spent.

The Google Pixel Watch 2 is $65 off and cheaper than ever

It’s down to $285 with a promo code..

The Google Pixel Watch 2 is on sale for $285 via Wellbots , which is its lowest price ever. That’s $65 off the usual price of $350, though you have to enter a promo code to get it. Just enter “ENGWATCH65” at checkout and you’ll be good to go. The sale covers all available colors, from that stunning matte black model to polished silver and beyond.

Google Pixel Watch 2

Don't forget to enter the coupon code to get $65 off. 

The Pixel Watch 2 is Google’s latest and greatest smartwatch and was originally released back in October. It’s a much better device than the original Pixel Watch, with longer battery life and some truly unique features . We loved the suite of sensors, including the updated heart rate sensor and the new skin-temperature sensor.

The watch also features something called a body-response measurement system, which refers to how your body reacts to stress. The watch is constantly looking for physical signs of stress and will prompt you to log your mood or take a walk when detected. This is done by tracking heart rate variability and sudden changes in sweat levels. We experienced mixed results with this system, but it does accurately predict stress levels a fair amount of the time.

The updated Snapdragon processor is powerful and Wear OS 4 is easy to get the hang of, particularly if you’re already in Google’s ecosystem. The display maxes out at 1,000 nits, which is much dimmer than the Apple Watch Series 9, but we never struggled to read anything on the screen.

There’s one major downside, but this is true of many modern smartwatches. The device wants to be worn while you sleep, to develop more accurate tracking metrics, but the battery doesn’t last 24 hours. So, you'll have to charge it for a bit in the middle of the day. Beyond that, this is a good all-around smartwatch for Android users, made even better by today’s discount.

How a Documentarian’s Unfinished Projects Led to His Masterpiece

The unexpected connections between people and the unknown ways in which they affect each other are central to Wilcha’s latest documentary, “ Flipside ,” a deeply moving and spectacularly entertaining movie that’s also about the costs and rewards of a creative life and the struggle to deal with the moment where one realizes that the life they’re living is different from the life they imagined. It’s about a lot of other things, too, and the miracle of Wilcha’s craftsmanship is that he has managed to make a film that feels both streamlined and endlessly complex; it would be hard to think of a movie more jammed with thought-provoking ideas, yet “Flipside” never feels rushed or overstuffed. It’s a model of concision, clarity, and depth, and what’s all the more remarkable — and ironic — about it is the fact that it began life as a movie that wasn’t supposed to exist at all.

“I was bummed that there would be no film, but I was thrilled to be a part of it,” Wilcha told IndieWire. “There was something so conceptually remarkable about Milch doing this, the idea that he hired a documentary crew to lavish this person with curiosity and attention before they died. And I was really leaning into it, because I didn’t know that it was all an act of performance art.” Initially, the hard drives with Leonard’s footage all went into the same vault with Wilcha’s other incomplete documentaries, movies on radio host Ira Glass, writer Starlee Kine, and others that, for one reason or another, never got finished as Wilcha’s life was taken over with raising a family and making a living in advertising. At one point, Wilcha considered taking these fragments and turning them into episodes of a TV documentary series, but he found no takers: “Exactly nobody was interested in subsidizing or producing that idea.”

Inside Flipside Records

“Every time you would talk to David Milch, he would quote this poem by Robert Penn Warren called ‘Tell Me a Story,'” Apatow said. “It reads, ‘Tell me a story in this century and moment of mania. Tell me a story. Make it a story of great distances and starlight. The name of the story will be time, but you must not pronounce its name. Tell me a story of deep delight.’ And that’s really what the movie is about. It’s about time and the way we don’t want it to pass and the way we hold on to things so that we can feel like we’re going to live forever or can relive these special moments in our lives.”

Chris Wilcha in

Wilcha notes that the whole notion of holding on to artifacts and archives relates to one of the film’s most powerful storylines, which is that of David Milch himself and his battle with Alzheimer’s. “One thing the movie was persistently about was memory, and we’re talking to Milch at this moment in his life when his memory is disappearing,” Wilcha said. “It was a reminder of how fragile all of it is, that even hoarding at some point loses meaning as the saving and keeping of memory disappears.” One of the most beautiful aspects of “Flipside” is the fact that by visiting Milch in his assisted living facility and making him the center of attention, Wilcha and Apatow return the favor Milch paid Leonard. “I think he really enjoyed us seeing him and shooting him. It was an exact echo of when I shot Herman, and there was something sort of beautiful about that.”

Oscilloscope releases “Flipside” in select theaters May 31.

This airport with easy access but dull food choices is upping its game for travelers

More than a dozen new dining options are slated to open at John Wayne Airport by the end of 2025, including popular Orange County restaurants such as Chaupain Bakery and Left Coast Brewing.

For anyone who catches flights from John Wayne Airport in Orange County, there’s a huge upside: It often beats traveling to LAX, and it’s easy to get in and get out. The downside? Food choices are limited and a bit boring.

That’s about to change.

More than a dozen new dining options are slated to arrive at the international airport by the end of 2025, including plenty of popular local restaurants, such as Chaupain Bakery , Left Coast Brewing and Wahoo’s Fish Taco.

Under a new 15-year contract, HMSHost, a food-service company that operates dining concepts at airports around the world, will develop more than 32,100 feet of concessions across Terminals A, B and C. The new dining venues will include outposts of Five Vines Wine Bar , Taco’s La Piña, Sgt. Pepperoni’s Pizza Store and Mama’s Comfort Food & Cocktails.

“These improvements underscore our commitment to providing guests with a unique and memorable dining experience showcasing local favorites and beloved national brands,” said airport director Charlene Reynold in a press release.

Tourists who desire to get one last bite of quintessential O.C. fare will be able to scratch that itch with Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, a fast casual O.C.-born chain known for its Baja-style fish tacos and other healthy eats.

The journey to open a Wahoo’s at his hometown airport has been long, co-founder Wing Lam told the O.C. Board of Supervisors before it voted to approve the project.

May 23, 2024

“We’ve been in Orange County now for 36 years,” Lam said. “I’m really looking forward to having our flagship store represented at the airport.”

Travelers will be able to satisfy their craving for buttery and flaky snacks at Chaupain Bakery, which already has stores in Laguna Hills and San Clemente. The bakery gained acclaim for its chocolate-almond custard croissant, filled with homemade custard and topped with sliced almonds and powdered sugar.

Visitors in the mood for a big breakfast might be inclined to dine at Mama’s Comfort Food & Cocktails, where you can get favorites such as French toast, biscuit skillets and scrambles.

Also, there will be new vending options called OC To Go where travelers can order hot, made-to-order pizza, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, Wow Bao buns and dumplings, salads, smoothies and coffee at all hours of the day.

A revamped Anaheim Ducks Breakaway Bar & Grill will feature a new look and menu.

Earlier this month, Orange County supervisors voted to approve the new concessions at the airport, which serves more than 11 million passengers a year.

John Wayne Airport is consistently ranked as one of the best large airports in the United States. The terminals are easy to navigate, with a distinctly taupe suburban vibe. Security is efficient, and parking is easy and near the airport.

The new restaurants will start opening early next year, according to Ashley Davidson, an HMSHost representative.

Starbucks will remain, but some current restaurants will close to make room for new spots. Some of the changes: Earl of Sandwich, Sgt. Pepperoni and Starbucks will replace McDonald’s and Hudson News. Tacos La Piña will take over for California Pizza Kitchen. Five Vines Wine Bar will supplant Vino Volo. The new Anaheim Duck’s Bar and Chaupain Bakery will succeed Ruby’s and Farmers Market.

Artois Belgian Bar, Hobie Sand Bar, Qdoba, OC Pizza, Jamba Juice and Ciao Gourmet Market and the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf will also shutter, making way for Aunt Annie’s Pretzels, BonChon Korean Fried Chicken, Earl of Sandwich, Habit Burger Grill, Dunkin’ Donuts, Panera Bread and others.

The new openings come at the heels of other local dining institutions opening outposts at the airport, such as Brodard Express , the beloved Orange County Vietnamese restaurant known for its spring rolls that launched last year, and Taps Fish House and Brewer y, which opened in February.

San Francisco officials are objecting to the proposed name change and have threatened to file a lawsuit arguing it would violate the city’s trademark on San Francisco International Airport and would potentially be confusing for people traveling to the area.

I went for the first time on a Saturday evening, so the place was very busy. Our waitress was very sweet and friendly however the service was slower than is normally acceptable. New restaurant + young and probably new server + busy Saturday night = it's fine The food was good. We got the Chi Town Trio for an appetizer. The best one on the plate was the Sicilian Pepperoni Rolls. I got an individual pizza and my mom got a calzone. The calzone was incorrect but was comped. The pizza was good but not my favorite. The bottom of the pizza was limp so I wish it was more crisp. I would definitely try it again.

Friday night and not too busy. Took 15 minutes to sit and lot of empty tables. Hosts more attention to call in and Togo orders. Gone down hill since opening

3/22/2024. Fourth visit. Our first visit was a few days in to their grand opening, not a great experience, long wait, cold food, poor service. Meal for 5 comped and tickets for free pizzas had us going back to try again. Happy to say every experience since has been great. This visit hubby had an "It's a Beaut" on tap beer which he really enjoyed and a Double Deckeroni pizza which was perfectly hot and delicious. I tried the Philly Cheesesteak and was pleasantly surprised at the spicy peppers. We had the Pepperoni Roll appetizer again! It is our favorite.

The food was great but took awhile. It was very busy but I think our waitress forgot to put our food in or just took a crazy amount of time. The pizza was really good and had a delicious sauce- only downside was no meatballs? Believe they put sausage on it instead. The artichoke dip was good but very oily.

Went in on a Monday around 2pm Ordered the thin crust create your own pizza .. over priced and soggy .. the sauce taste as if they added sugar .. toppings very little .. I won't return .. service was slow and wasn't that busy ..

We had deep dish pizza. The service was okay. It was very busy Friday night. We sat at the bar. Nothing special. Give me a Nancy's Pizza any day over this and I lived in Chicago for a year so I've had the real thing g.

Sunday night, they'll be open for a few hours more. No one at the front desk. Waiters walked by without a greeting or a word. I finally asked the bartender for help. Most tables were empty, a lot of dirty dishes not cleared. We waited and waited. Clearly weren't going to get a drink order in anytime soon. And then who knows how log the food might take. We left. No one noticed.

I love that they had a variety of cider/seltzer options for people who don't drink beer. Nice sportsbar-like atmosphere. I ordered the Chicago 7 on tavern thin crust. It was good, but I didn't like the chunky onions or green peppers. They were essentially raw on my pizza. Will most likely stick to meat on a pizza the next time I go.

Decided to visit tonight... and it will be the last time my family ever comes here again. Pizza crust was thinner than paper, and to think they have a crust called tavern thin... can't imagine it getting any thinner... waitress was non existent.. we asked for ranch with our pizza and never got it... then we asked for refills and reminded her about the ranch. Instead she took her time ringing up a bunch of checks for a large party that had already finished their food and were just hanging out not in any rush. Take my advice, and don't waist your money or time... Dominos pizza is better than this place!

Ale Crust Chicago 7. Crust was thinner than paper had to eat it with a fork! Soggy nasty mess.

So I'm giving this place a 3.5 for the food, but I can see this place improving according to management. Two managers came over to our table and genuinely inquired about our overall service and was taking feedback. We were honest and spoke about adding certain items like hot tea, due to my bf feeling a little under the weather and the dough situation was explained. It was recommended to try the restaurant again after about a month when everything would be more consistent. I believe it's the second week and they ran out of dough so I ended up ordering the cauliflower crust, that was great. I ordered the Tuscan chicken pizza I enjoyed it, slightly cold. My boyfriend order the chicken sandwich which he felt needed more flavor and we did the spinach and artichoke dip( highly recommend trying). The dip wasn't overly salty like other places, which I prefer so if u wanted to add a bit more salt u can. It had a nice balance.Our little one ordered the boneless wings he didn't like it, but he's also very picky and we placed an order of wings for ourselves.The service because of management I'm giving a 5/5, for them checking on us and the ambiance is relaxing, well lit. I'm def going try again as recommended . It was some hiccups so that's why for food it's a 3.5 for me.
