The black wind that blew through Europe in the first part of the 20th century came early to Belogorodka. Ikhel Vodonos was born to it. His life began in 1916, a year before the Russian Revolution, in the midst of world war and restless times. He was, like many of the town's inhabitants, a Jew, the youngest of 13 children born to Yankel and Reizl Vodonos. At first, the revolution didn't mean much more than some new slogans in Belogorodka. Even the pogroms didn't change. "Bandits are coming!"

It didn't last long, but for a short time in the 1840s the Mississippi River town of Nauvoo was the largest city in Illinois. While most municipalities thrived on trade, Nauvoo's propelling force was something much less tangible: faith. And that would also be the city's downfall. Before the fledgling Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints - the Mormons - made Salt Lake City the center of their earthly existence, they had settled in Nauvoo, following their founding prophet Joseph Smith.

Joseph and Summer McStay's home sat on a quiet cul-de-sac, beneath a mountain thick with avocado trees. The fenced backyard was perfect for Bear, Summer's Akita, and there was plenty of room upstairs for their two toddlers. Soon after they moved in, in late 2009, Summer had launched a big renovation — paint, tile flooring and granite countertops. She also adopted a puppy. Six weeks later, on a chilly Thursday evening in February, the family piled into their Isuzu Trooper and drove away.

The latest winners of the annual Herb Alpert Awards in the Arts, which funnel $75,000 prizes to experimental artists in recognition of past achievements and future promise, include longtime L.A. visual art provocateur Daniel Joseph Martinez and four others based in Chicago or New York who didn't start making their marks until the 21st century. Martinez, who earned his master of fine art degree from California Institute of the Arts, which administers the Alpert Awards, has been exhibiting his work since the late 1970s and was included in both the 1993 and 2008 Whitney Biennials at New York's Whitney Museum of American Art. He grabbed attention in the 1993 Whitney group show by creating a simple white lapel button distributed to museum visitors that said, “I can't imagine ever wanting to be white.” CRITICS' PICKS: What to watch, where to go, what to eat Martinez recently had an L.A. gallery show whose paintings and photographs were inspired by what he'd seen and heard over several years of riding Metro buses through the city.

"Bliss" is an earnest yet half-baked message movie about how the source of sexual dysfunction in marriage can be caused by a repressed memory of childhood incest. That this is obviously a very serious, tricky subject doesn't excuse writer-director Lance Young from turning out so academic and uneven a film. This is yet another of those blah Canadian movies that provide such a contrast to the venturesome work of two north-of-the-border mavericks, Atom Egoyan and David Cronenberg.

"Tyrannosaur" is a punishing story of two broken lives and a searing feature writing/directing debut from British actor Paddy Considine. It is the kind of film that leaves you limp, exhausted and feeling battered by the end. But its wrenching performances make the beating worth weathering. In a gritty corner of Leeds, Joseph (Peter Mullan) and Hannah (Olivia Colman) meet by chance in a neighborhood as worn down as they are. He's been brought to his knees by drink, while God is what brings Hannah to hers.

In 1970, Joseph Sax wrote a law review article that laid the foundation for a court case that would become famous in the annals of California water. More than a decade after publication of Sax's seminal essay on the public trust doctrine, the California Supreme Court ruled that the state had a duty to take into account the public trust in allocating water resources - an opinion that ultimately forced Los Angeles to reduce diversions from the Mono Lake basin in the Eastern Sierra.

" John's Rocket Pictures announced Wednesday that it has acquired the film rights to the stage production by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice, which is based on the "coat of many colors" story from the Book of Genesis.

Pivot is pressing the record button again: Joseph Gordon-Levitt's "HitRecord on TV" will get a second season.
