Emmanuel, one of the best-known Latin pop stars in the world, likes to show off his knees. Right there in the crowded restaurant at the West Hollywood hotel where he is staying before his shows tonight and Saturday at the Greek Theatre, he pulls up one pant leg in a flash. "See that scar," he says, pointing to a gash running across his knee. Up goes the other pant leg. "Here's the other," he says. "Both legs." The effects of one angry bull are indelibly printed on Emmanuel's legs.

Anyone who has seen director Alfonso Cuarón and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki work together might think they spend all of their time arguing like an old married couple, the squabbles punctuated by all manner of Spanish swear words. "They are very intense," said David Heyman, a producer of "Gravity," their Oscar-nominated and most celebrated collaboration. "They are both perfectionists and unrelenting in their pursuit of that perfection. " But like some old married couples, underneath their disagreements rest a deep and abiding trust and respect.

As Evander Holyfield flipped through the pages of a children's book with his daughter in the back of a stretch limo, en route to an appointment with a documentary film maker in Hollywood, the people traveling with the heavyweight champion were earning their pay in crisis management. Did Jack Nicholson, as rumored, have flu, they asked via their cell phones. If so, did he still plan to attend Friday night's Laker game against Seattle?

Brahms and Tchaikovsky made an effort to be civil to each other when the German and Russian composers met, and that was impressive. In an infamous review, Edward Hanslick, the most powerful critic in 19th century Vienna and Brahms' mouthpiece, credited Tchaikovsky as the first composer to write music "that stinks in the ear. " Tchaikovsky called Brahms a "self-inflated mediocrity. " This week there is a Tchaikovsky lockdown in Walt Disney Concert Hall, thanks to daily programs in the Los Angeles Philharmonic's magnificent TchaikovskyFest.

The last thing the Pittsburgh Steelers needed Sunday night was another injury. At least that's what one would think with the team already without so many key players -- including star safety Troy Polamalu, their top two running backs and two members of the offensive line -- for their "Sunday Night Football" game against the Cincinnati Bengals. But it turns out an injury -- or perhaps the better way to phrase is "injury" -- to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was just what the doctor ordered for the Steelers, who faced a third-and-11 with the play clock winding down midway through the fourth quarter.

Florida versus Oklahoma for the Bowl Championship Series title on Thursday night? No, Florida vs. USC in the PCS (Pete Carroll Series), a mythical, can't-happen game between Moody's new team vs. Moody's old team.

Arriving at a Malibu cafe while waiting to conduct a post-screening Q&A, cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki isn't just on time but, startlingly, early. The 49-year-old Mexican-born cinematographer has earned raves for two very different films last year: Terrence Malick's earthbound romance "To the Wonder" and Alfonso Cuarón's outer-orbit survival epic, "Gravity," for which Lubezki has received an Oscar nomination. It's Lubezki's fifth collaboration with director Cuarón, and it's a relationship Lubezki cherishes, even if it's a little intense: "Many, many times making 'Gravity,' I thought if somebody else was directing, or if I was directing, I think I would have said, 'OK, stop it, let's just do it with whatever we have.' Alfonso's appetite is just so enormous, and, in a funny way, he's a tiny bit naive, and I think that allows him to have all these dreams and just push us, the technicians, to get where he's attempting to go. " I don't go to a movie expecting correct science.

Denise Gatewood's Lakewood apartment is eerily quiet. Gone are the sounds of her 17-year-old son playing video games in the living room. Now, all that remains are two large photographs of Emmanuel - a bulky football player - dressed in a red graduation gown, a half smile on his face. Emmanuel Gatewood , known as "Mamo," never made it to his high school graduation ceremony. The photos were taken weeks before the senior was gunned down outside a pool party in Athens, an unincorporated neighborhood in South Los Angeles.

Terrence Malick's coming-of-age epic "The Tree of Life" has been shrouded in mystery since news of it surfaced in 2005. So it's fitting that the first thing cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki says about the film is that, well, there's not much he can say about the film. "It's very hard to talk about this movie because almost anything I say will reduce it and make it seem prosaic and simplistic," he said. But then the veteran cinematographer, whose credits include "Children of Men" and "Ali" and who collaborated with Malick on his "The New World," goes on to say plenty, comparing the May 27 release to, among other things, a symphony and a novel.

Emmanuel Cordero is impatient with his mother and her light conversation. "Mom! Now we have to talk about the camp !" he says with preteen inflection, drawing out the last word into three syllables for emphasis. The 11-year-old can barely sit still as he describes the activities from last summer's Blue Sky Meadow Science Camp — bird watching, geology hikes, making magnets, catching insects and even observing a tarantula. Emmanuel would rather be outside than in a classroom.

Whether the day's news tells of air strikes, a new general or a surge in troops, the constantly shifting uncertainty of Afghanistan's present has demanded our attention since 2001. A graphic novel offering an entry point into the country's not-too-distant past is, then, unusual, illuminating and, in this case, breathtaking.
