Good to see actress Joy Bryant in her true element as fashionista ("Joy," Fall Fashion Issue, Sept. 10). Better to hear her wax philosophical on managing life's issues. Bryant first caught my attention with her performance in Mario Van Peebles' film "Baadasssss!" From that brief but significant role, I envisioned her agent fielding many a phone call requesting all things Joy. You go, girl! R. Amos Los Angeles

Nixon, watchmaker of choice among SoCal surfers and skaters, has upped the celebrity design ante with its new LTD collection of watches incorporating rockers' actual guitar frets and concert ticket stubs.

Since closing his cult-favorite L.A. fashion boutique, Lo-Fi, in 2007, fashion designer, vintage apparel dealer and DJ Kelly Cole has been relatively content spinning records at trendy watering holes and selling clothing to top-flight stores, including American Rag Cie, Barneys New York and Confederacy. But gradually, the naturally social Cole began feeling like a lone wolf. "I started to miss people," he explained. "I deal with people in my DJ life, but at night it's a whole different rhythm.

Ever since Dax Shepard first appeared on the TV prank show "Punk'd," he's carved out an interesting niche in films and on television, expertly playing dumb guys who are still sweet and remarkably sensitive. It's a fitting description of both Crosby Braverman, his character on NBC's family drama "Parenthood," and Charlie Bronson, the man in the sights of a shady band of bank robbers in the car-chase comedy "Hit & Run. " Shepard wrote, co-directed and stars in the film, which opened in Los Angeles through Open Road on Wednesday.

Like the individual it's named after, a man who wrote the screenplay of the film based on his own life and then had to wait nearly a decade to see it arrive on screen, "Antwone Fisher" is the story of obstacles overcome. Not only is it unusual that this emotional story of how a damaged boy became a whole man made it to the screen at all, it is a measure of its strengths that it overcomes storytelling flaws that would have disabled a weaker project.

Doing copious amounts of illegal drugs and seeing a therapist would seem a huge waste of money on at least one count. In Hunter Richards' tedious, claustrophobic drama, "London," which stars the attractive triumvirate of Chris Evans, Jessica Biel and Jason Statham, the characters partake of the former while prattling on about matters best left for the latter -- or ignored altogether.
