Chances are good that Harry Dean Stanton, the prolific character actor with the face of a backwoods prophet, will be the subject of a straightforward career-retrospective documentary someday. For now we have something that's more in tune with the man: Sophie Huber's lyrical and enigmatic portrait, "Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction. " At the film's heart is a fitful conversation that unfolds like a string of koans, epigrams, jokes and silences. And songs. A reluctant interviewee with no interest in biographical facts, Stanton would rather sing than yak. The unrepentant loner says he's "not psychologically wired for institutions"; nonetheless, within the moviemaking system he's amassed 200-plus film credits and counting.

The death of a mother and daughter in an Orange County apartment does not appear to be criminal in nature, an Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesman said Friday. The bodies of Beverly Skinn, 80, and her daughter Monnie Skinn, 43, were found in their Stanton apartment Tuesday afternoon by sheriff's deputies doing a welfare check. Lt. Jeff Hallock they stopped by the apartment because Monnie Skinn had missed a few days of work.  There were no visible signs of trauma and a cause of death is pending a toxicology report, Hallock said.

Giancarlo Stanton, a slugging outfielder from Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, didn't make the majors because of his defense, but on Thursday night he did make a diving catch that helped the Miami Marlins pull out a 4-3 victory over the Braves at Turner Field in Atlanta. The Marlins took the lead in the top of the ninth inning on a run-scoring single by pinch-hitter Donovan Solano. The Braves rallied in the bottom of the inning, though, and with a runner on first base and one out, Atlanta second baseman Dan Uggla drove a fly ball to deep right-center field.

Iggy Pop was living in an efficiency apartment near the Whisky a Go Go when a gangly Brit visited him, seeking a theme song for his first movie. The filmmaker was Alex Cox, a graduate of UCLA film school, and the movie was "Repo Man," which would, after a brief initial release, achieve cult status for its punk bona fides and its comic sci-fi vision of Ronald Reagan-era Los Angeles. In an interview that's one of the welcome extras in a new, high-definition restoration of the feature (available Tuesday from Criterion Collection)

It wasn't long ago that Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton was a top prospect trying to play his way into the majors. On Wednesday, Stanton was hit in the helmet by Miami's top pitching prospect, Jose Fernandez, during live batting practice (video above). When Stanton spotted a downtrodden Fernandez on Thursday in camp, he had good news for the hard-throwing 20-year-old. X-rays were negative, he had no symptoms of a concussion, and the outfielder who starred at Notre Dame High in Sherman Oaks, Calif., said his vision was normal after originally suffering from blurriness.
