Past Watchful Dragons

The initial shock of the sharp, repetitive pounding of needles into my skin was more than I expected. The tattoo artist, sleeved from wrist to shoulder in his own art, was no stranger to first-timers, and quickly fell into a comfortable rhythm of joking and intense concentration. It was the night of my 21st birthday; […]

Film Review: The Kite Runner

The Kite Runner dramatizes the Afghanistan culture over the 30 years before its 2007 release.  And although most of the actors are Afghani, speaking Dari with English subtitles, this film was made by Hollywood (DreamWorks) for English-speaking audiences.  And they deserve a round of applause for making an artistic, astute film that avoids the stereotypical […]
