Still early days but Shaw, Gill look like India stars for the future

first_imgThere was much to look forward to in this year’s Indian Premier League with all eight franchises forming new teams after the auction in January.While most of the teams bid for the proven match-winners from the past, Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders, took a different path and bought the stars of the future while also maintaining their core squad with experienced hands.KKR bagged the services of India U-19 stars Shubman Gill, Kamlesh Nagarkotti and Shivam Mavi while the Daredevils snapped up Prithvi Shaw and Manjot Kalra to bolster their batting lineup.Three of these youngsters have got the opportunity to represent their respective sides so far this season and they have immediately made an impact thanks to their fearless approach to the game.KKR VS CSK HIGHLIGHTS | MATCH PICTURESShaw and Gill in particular have taken the tournament by storm with their batting exploits. Cricket experts and pundits are in awe of the talent that these two posses while Mavi has also impressed the likes of Ian Bishop and Simon Doull with his pace and accuracy.KKR seem to have finally realised the potential that Gill has and have now started to send him up the order to bat at No.4. The 18-year-old batted at No.7 in three innings and at No.6 in two innings.IPL 2018: Teenage sensation Shubman Gill wants to grow a beard like Dinesh KarthikEverybody knew Gill is a special talent and needs to bat up the order where he can play to his potential. On Thursday, Nitish Rana was out injured with a back spasm and that meant it was an opportunity for Gill to go up the order at No.4advertisementThe teenager smashed an unbeaten 57 off 36 balls with six boundaries and two sixes to end up as the top-scorer in KKR’s successful run chase of 177.Gill displayed a wide variety of shots and expressed himself to the fullest as he got the license to thrill at the Eden Gardens.”I am very pleased to have batted at No. 4. I had dropped a catch, so I had to finish the game. Was talking with DK about how to deal with the death overs. Especially with the spinners bowling. Plan was about making sure that runs are flowing, and if the ball is bad, we’ll hit,” Gill said after the match.The right-handed bat said he is relishing the experience of playing in the IPL.”KKR crowd is the best. No matter whether we win or lose. Great IPL experience, Jacques Kallis and Simon Katich are great, so much to learn from them,” he added.India U-19 skipper Shaw, who lifted the World Cup earlier this year, has been in the limelight for a much longer time than any of his teammates.Prithvi Shaw has progressed remarkably, says Sachin TendulkarShaw was touted as a child protégé ever since he burst on to the scene back in 2013, when he scored 546 in a Harris Shield game. He already has five first-class hundreds even before turning an adult, since making his debut on the first day of last year for Mumbai in the semi-finals of the 2016-17 Ranji Trophy.The Mumbai batsman was in tremendous touch in the U-19 World Cup in New Zealand where he scored 261 runs from six games and led from the front in India’s fourth U-19 World Cup triumph.Making his debut in the IPL, Shaw immediately grabbed attention with a sublime knock of 62 in his second match against KKR. He also became the joint-youngest player to score a fifty in the IPL thanks to that knock. He then smashed another quickfire 47 off 25 balls against Rajasthan Royals in the last match to script a 4-run win for DD in a rain-curtailed match.Shaw has so far scored 140 runs in 4 matches for DD at an average of 35 with a highest of 62. Gill meanwhile, has made 122 runs in 7 games at 40.66 with one half-century.While Shaw opens the innings for DD, it would be safe to assume that Gill will not be demoted after that spectacular knock against the Super Kings.So much potential and talent naturally leads to comparisons with the greats. While it is still early days for Shaw and Gill’s names to be taken in the same breath as Sachin Tendulkar or Virat Kohli, the future of these two batsmen certainly looks very bright.Both teenagers have had a great start and impressive performances in the IPL bode well for them. Their seniors believe these two can go on to have successful international careers and there is no reason why they should not.advertisementBut the road ahead won’t be easy – in international cricket, it never is. Shaw is an opening batsman and India have the likes of Murali Vijay and KL Rahul in Tests and Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma in ODIs. Besides, Rahul and Ajinkya Rahane are never out of reckoning as back-up openers in the shorter formats.Gill is a terrific middle-order batsman. The Indian middle-order is the strongest in world cricket at the moment and the young Punjab batsman will have to bide his time.But there might still be a glimmer of hope for him as India look to shore up the Nos 4 and 5 slots in their ODI line-up. Who knows how the team management might look at Gill after the World Cup next year?For now, though, Shaw and Gill will need to keep going – runs in the IPL, runs in domestic cricket before an India call-up never hurt.last_img read more

Macheda admits to Man Utd regret

first_imgManchester United Forgotten man Macheda admits to Man Utd regret Chris Burton 05:06 12/15/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Federico Macheda Getty Images Manchester United Premier League Novara Lazio Serie A The Italian striker burst onto the scene at Old Trafford but concedes that he did not work hard enough and now finds himself turning out in Serie B Federico Macheda admits that not working hard enough during his time at Manchester United remains the biggest regret of his career.Having left Lazio to join the youth set-up at Old Trafford, the Italian striker enjoyed a dream debut with the Red Devils when he netted a dramatic winner against Aston Villa in April 2009.Despite bursting onto the scene under Sir Alex Ferguson, Macheda soon slipped down the pecking order and ended up leaving for Cardiff in 2014 following a number of forgettable loan spells.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player He failed to reignite his spark in South Wales and landed at Serie B side Novara in December 2016, completing his fall from grace.Macheda told Calciomercato on his career path: “Regrets? I have only one.“When I made the step up to the Manchester United first team, I had to give three times as much as what I had already. I didn’t, which is the only regret I have. I’ve learned a lot from that mistake.“I advise the younger players to listen to close relatives and friends, and to surround themselves with people who really love them.“It’s never easy to manage pressure. You just have to focus on what you do on the pitch, and don’t worry too much about what the media is saying.”Macheda Doncaster RoversWhile Macheda was ultimately unable to make the grade with United, he claims to be happy back in his homeland and enjoying a return to form after netting seven times in 21 appearances last season.He added: “Novara? I wanted to get back into the game and I wanted to restart my career in Italy.“I had several offers, even from abroad, but Novara seemed like the best place for me.“In terms of goals, it has gone well. The first priority was to get back in shape, and then to rediscover my goalscoring form.“I always try to set an example to the younger players, by giving everything in training from start to finish.“Why stay? I received lots of offers last summer, but I decided to renew my contract here at Novara. I’m happy here, my wife likes it here, my son was born here and we love how peaceful Novara is.”Macheda is still only 26 years of age and while he is settled for now, he admits that he still harbours ambitions of returning to his roots back in Rome.“Playing for Lazio is a dream of mine,” he said.“I left early to go to Manchester United, but I have always followed their results.”A move to Stadio Olimpico would complete a remarkable turnaround for Macheda and place him back on a stage similar to the one he previously enjoyed at Old Trafford.

UN Human Rights Council calls for investigation into alleged abuses in Syria

29 April 2011The United Nations Human Rights Council today voted for a mission to be sent to Syria to investigate alleged violations of international human rights law and crimes committed against civilians in the Middle East country, where hundreds of people have been killed during weeks of unrest. Condemning the use of deadly violence against peaceful demonstrators and the “hindrance of access to medical treatment,” the Council urged the Syrian Government to protect civilians and respect fundamental freedoms, including the freedom of expression and assembly.It also called for the restoration of access to the Internet and other communication networks, the lifting of media censorship and to allow foreign journalists into the country.In a resolution supported by 26 of the Council’s 47 Member States, the Geneva-based panel requested that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights dispatch a mission to Syria to investigate alleged violations. Nine Member States voted against the resolution, seven abstained and four were absent.The Council “calls upon the Syrian Government to cooperate fully with and grant access to personnel from the mission dispatched by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights,” the text said.It deeply regretted the deaths of hundreds of people in the ongoing political protests and voiced grave concern over the alleged deliberate killings, arrests and incidents of torture of demonstrators by the Syrian authorities.The Council called upon authorities to immediately free all prisoners of conscience and people arbitrarily detained, including those held before the recent events, and called for an end to intimidation, persecution and arbitrary arrests of lawyers, human rights defenders and journalists.In addition, the Council urged the Syrian authorities to refrain from reprisals against people who have taken part in peaceful demonstrations, and stressed the need for credible and impartial investigation and prosecution of those responsible for attacks on the protesters.It appealed to authorities to enlarge the scope of political participation to strengthen social justice and ensure civil liberties.In her statement to the Council, before the resolution was adopted, Kyung-wha Kang, the UN Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights, said that information gathered since mid-March painted a disturbing picture.This included the widespread use of live fire ammunition against protesters; the arrest, detention and disappearance of demonstrators, human rights defenders, and journalists; and torture and ill-treatment of detainees. More than 450 people have reportedly been killed and three times that number injured.There was also repression of press freedoms and other means of communication and attacks against medical personnel, facilities and patients.‘Yet even these deplorable practices have been exceeded over the past week. According to reports, entire towns have been besieged. Tanks have been deployed and shelled densely-populated areas,” said Ms. Kang.“The delivery of food has been impeded. Access to electricity has been cut. And transportation systems have been shut down. There have been reports of snipers firing on persons attempting to assist the injured or remove dead bodies from public areas,” she added.The Council requested the High Commissioner for Human Rights to provide a preliminary report and an oral update of the human rights situation in Syria to its 17th session and to submit a follow-up report to the 18th session.The Council took note of the stated intention by Syrian authorities to take steps towards reform and called for concrete measures to meet the legitimate demands of the people.Ms. Kang noted that Syria is a State party to nearly all of the core international human rights treaties, including the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.“Thus, Syria must ensure that the rights to life, liberty and security of person are protected in all circumstances, including in the context of efforts to maintain law and order,” she said. read more

Ohio State womens volleyball takes two wins including upset of No 4

Members of the OSU women’s volleyball team during a game against Nebraska on Oct. 3 at St. John Arena. OSU won 3-2. Credit: Ed Momot / For The LanternThe Ohio State women’s volleyball team kept rolling over the weekend, as it captured a pair of conference victories on its home floor in St. John Arena, including a win over a top-five team.OSU (14-2, 3-1) defeated Iowa (10-7, 0-4) on Friday, followed by an upset win against No. 4 Nebraska (12-2, 3-1) on Saturday.The Nebraska game was another five-set match for the Buckeyes — their third in four games of Big Ten play — as they grabbed the win over the Cornhuskers (22-25, 25-18, 25-22, 17-25, 15-10), who had handed top-ranked Penn State its first loss the night before.“What I told them between games two and three is that this is our opportunity,” OSU coach Geoff Carlston said. “Do we want to be the 15th-best team or do we want to show who we really are? I basically said, ‘You deserve this, you’ve worked hard. There’s absolutely no reason you can’t go out there and win this match.’”Freshman outside hitter Audra Appold led the way for the OSU attack against Nebraska. Appold came out firing for 19 of her 22 kills in the first three sets and added 17 digs to pick up her first career double-double.“I just went out with a go-for-it mentality,” Appold said. “And everyone was doing their job, so it was a full-team effort.”Senior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell also came up big in the win with a double-double — her eighth of the year — by way of 20 kills and 17 digs, while sophomore outside hitter Luisa Schirmer added 14 digs, nine kills and a solo block. Freshman setter Taylor Hughes nearly topped a personal best set last weekend against Wisconsin with 50 assists.“We had a lot of heroes tonight,” Carlston said. “Everyone on this team really is climbing the mountain together, and that’s what’s important.”OSU took a quick lead in the first set against the Cornhuskers and led by as many as five points, but couldn’t hold on as Nebraska used a late 6-0 run to steal a 1-0 advantage.The two teams went back and forth for much of the second and third sets, but OSU slowly pulled away in each to take a 2-1 lead. The fourth set belonged to Nebraska, however. After the teams were tied at nine, the Cornhuskers went on a 16-8 run to send the match to a decisive fifth set.In the final set, the Buckeyes set the tone by racing out to a quick 3-0 lead, which they never gave up as they took their third win in their last four games against Nebraska. OSU upset the Cornhuskers last season in Lincoln in their only matchup.“Someone said in the locker room, ‘Now the tables have turned and we see that anyone can win,’” senior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell said after the match. “Everyone can play really well in this conference and everyone has off nights.”The weekend started off with four-set OSU win over Iowa (25-22, 25-19, 18-25, 25-11) on Friday night.The Buckeyes held Iowa to a .122 attack percentage as they logged a season-best 16 blocks in the victory. Seven of those blocks came from junior middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe and five from senior outside hitter Katie Mitchell. Junior libero Valeria León led her team with 20 digs.“We preach that you wear your heart on your sleeve and it’s reflected in how you play defense,” Carlston said.Campbell led all players with 17.5 points on 14 kills, three block assists and two aces. Sandbothe (15.5), Appold (12.5) and Mitchell (11) also had double-digit point efforts. Hughes continued her hot streak with 41 assists and 11 digs for her seventh double-double of the season.Behind six kills and no errors from Campbell, OSU rolled in the first set, in which it never trailed. Campbell had five more kills in the second set, helping to lead the Buckeyes to a .400 attack percentage as they grabbed a 2-0 advantage over the Hawkeyes.Just when it looked like OSU would run away with an easy sweep, Iowa came charging back after the intermission to force a fourth set.The Buckeyes came out firing in the last set, picking up half of their blocks for the whole game in the deciding frame as Iowa was held to a minus-.138 attack percentage. Mitchell had four of her five total blocks in the set, at one point scoring five of six OSU points on three solo blocks and two kills.OSU is next set to head out on the road for its first away conference games next weekend, as the Buckeyes are slated to play Northwestern on Friday and Illinois on Saturday. Both matches have a scheduled start time of 8 p.m. read more

6 Nations chiefs confirm Cian Healy is suspended for Leinsters game this

first_imgIRELAND STAR Cian Healy will not be involved in Leinster’s RaboDirect PRO12 game against Treviso in Dublin tomorrow.The prop was hit with a three-week ban this week for a stamp on England’s Dan Cole in the Lansdowne Rd defeat last weekend.The independent disciplinary committee decided that the punishment for his stamp should be deferred by one week so that he would miss Ireland’s Six Nations matches against Scotland and France. That caused some confusion about the player’s eligibility or otherwise for this week’s action but disciplinary chiefs have moved to clarify the matter.“During the hearing of the citing complaint against Mr Healy,” a statement from Six Nations Rugby Limited  reads, “the chairman of the independent disciplinary committee, Roger Morris, of Wales, made it clear to Mr Healy and those representing him at the hearing that Mr Healy was suspended from the date on which he had been informed of the citing complaint against him (11 February 2013) until midnight on the night of Sunday, 10 March 2013.“The disciplinary committee has not yet produced its written decision, but Mr Morris has today written to Six Nations Rugby Limited and those representing Mr Healy at the hearing to confirm the position. Mr Morris says, in relevant part:‘I do not think anyone present at the hearing on Wednesday was in any doubt that Mr Healy is not free to play again until after midnight on 10 March’.“Accordingly, Mr Healy is currently suspended and will remain suspended – subject to appeals – until 11 March, 2013. He is therefore not eligible to play for Leinster in this weekend’s RaboDirect PRO12 match against Benetton Treviso.“In addition, following clause 2.5.99 of the Six Nations disciplinary and anti-doping rules (which is consistent with IRB Regulations 17.19.10 and 17.19.11), and in keeping with other decisions, the disciplinary committee excluded this weekend from its calculations of the three-week suspension as a result of evidence given at the hearing to the effect that Mr Healy would not have been selected to play for Leinster in this weekends match against Benetton Treviso.”Ruddock to captain Leinster, Healy misses outIreland looking to land ‘Killer’ blow on Scots to salvage 6 Nations bidlast_img read more

Greek woman sets fire to British tourists penis

first_imgA British man on holiday in Crete suffered second-degree burns after a Greek woman became infuriated by his “indecent” behaviour in a bar and set fire to his private parts, Greek and British media reported on Thursday. The Star channel said the incident occurred in the early hours of Wednesday in the resort town of Malia. The Sun, reported that the man, Stuart Feltham allegedly exposed himself to a Greek girl in a bar in Malia in Crete. Mr Feltham allegedly exposed his penis and testicles and proceeded to wave them around in the bar in front of a group of women.The 20-year-old British tourist reportedly then made crude advances towards a 26-year-old student while drunk and tried to force her to touch his penis and testicles. The woman, from the local capital Iraklion, who twice attempted to push him away finally poured a bottle of Sambuca over his private parts, and set them on fire with a cigarette lighter. The woman turned herself in at the local police station a few hours later and confessed to the attack. She claimed Mr Feltham groped her and pestered her for sex. Police said Mr Feltham, was rushed to hospital with second-degree burns to his genitals. Student Marina Fanouraki, 26, is due in court charged with grievous bodily harm. Many have rung talkback radio programmes in Greece and supported the woman for standing up to all too common lewd behaviour by drunken British tourists on Greek islands. For Cretans especially, who are well known for their fiery and independent nature, she was proclaimed a ‘hero.’The British government has made regular attempts to convince tour operators to stop their bar hopping-tours as a way of limiting disorderly drunk behaviour by British tourists. Last month, the British Government urged Greece to ban organised “bar-hopping” tours and clamp down on doctored drinks to help stop young British tourists from getting into alcohol-related trouble after a series of incidents.

Mortal Kombat 11 Kharacter Guide Skarlet

first_img ‘Mortal Kombat 11’ Kharacter Guide: Nightwolf‘Street Fighter V’ and ‘Mortal Kombat 11’ Get Ne… There have been eleven main Mortal Kombat games. Can you believe it? The 90s were that long ago. Since then the fighting game has become a gory institution as colorful ninjas and sorcerers and special forces agents collide to rip each others’ guts out in wacky martial arts tournaments.But in the past decade Mortal Kombat has gone from just a recognizable violent fighting game to a really good recognizable violent fighting game. And the recently released Mortal Kombat 11 brings the reboot trilogy home with a story mode stretching across all of history and new ways for customizing characters to your liking, with different skills and gear to make the accessible mechanics even more varied and deep.Expensive cutscenes and ancillary (arguably exploitative) side content aren’t worth anything though if your fighting game doesn’t have a solid roster. Fortunately, Mortal Kombat 11 gives you a diverse cast of kombatants on which to unleash your bloodlust. And we’re taking a look at every single one of them.

She constantly seeks new types of blood to fuel her magic, so you better believe she keeps crossing paths with fighters who frequently spill as much of the red stuff as the Mortal Kombat crew.Kombat KhronologyRumors persist that Skarlet secretly appeared in Mortal Kombat 2 as a red version of Kitana. And if that did happen it was only a glitch, like the red ninja Ermac or “Error Macro,” as opposed to yet another hidden character in a game already full of them. But true or not eventually the rumor took on enough hold that NetherRealm decided to make Skarlet an official character in the 2011 Mortal Kombat reboot, initially teasing her as DLC.Koolest KustomizationsSkarlet winds up covered in blood so often I don’t really bother trying out different outfits for her. They’re all red. I’ve tried out just about every move of hers though because as cool as “blood witch” is as a character, I can’t seem to nail down a good moveset for Skarlet. She can shoot blood balls and summon blood tentacles and slit her own hands to gain extra blood strength. But more elaborate techniques like blood levitation or making opponents choke on their own blood are tricky to actually land. Right now I’m using blood teleport but I feel like I could be doing so much more.How Gross Is The Fatality?Skarlet’s fatality might be my favorite in the whole game. Watching and terror and writing in pain as your own blood is sucked out of your body through your eyes into the air is such an evocative horror image. Skarlet then harden that blood into spikes that slam through you. And for good measure she pops out one of your eyeballs.last_img read more

This research demonstrated that 3-D SPECT imaging is a beneficial tool for ruling in or out ADHD.This study is important because of the way the SPECT scans were rendered. The 3-D renderings made the scans easier to read than the typical 2-D images, which required greater reading skills of the physicians. In the present study, 3-D thresholded SPECT scans gave a sensitivity of 83% in predicting which patients would have a clinical diagnosis of ADHD compared with a sensitivity of 10% for the conventional 2-D SPECT scans. A 10% sensitivity hardly makes SPECT scans useful for clinical psychiatric applications, which is why some researchers have criticized the use of traditional SPECT.Daniel G. Amen, M.D., psychiatrist and founder of Amen Clinics, who is referenced in the published article but did not participate in this particular study, says, “This study points to a significant advancement in the care of people who suffer with ADHD and other psychiatric disorders. Until now, standard diagnoses in psychiatry are made primarily through talking to patients and looking at symptom clusters without any biological information. Psychiatry is the only medical specialty that virtually never looks at the organ it treats.”For more information: News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | PET-CT | August 15, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Installation of uExplorer Total-body PET/CT United Imaging announced that its uExplorer total-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system… read more News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read morelast_img read more

Review A strong Efron but little else new in Bun

first_imgReview: A strong Efron, but little else new in Bundy biopic by Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Press Posted May 1, 2019 2:35 pm PDT This image released by Netflix shows Zac Efron, left, and Lily Collins, right, in a scene from “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile.” (Brian Douglas/Netflix via AP) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email When Ted Bundy died in the electric chair 30 years ago in Florida, a witness to the execution — a prosecutor in the case of a 12-year-old girl Bundy murdered — told the New York Times: “He probably could have done anything he set his mind to do, but something happened to him and we still don’t know what it was.”Three decades later, we still don’t, and the aptly named “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile” doesn’t provide any new answers.Instead, Joe Berlinger’s film, starring an impressively scary Zac Efron, tries with mixed success to address a different issue, namely how Bundy not only used his good looks and boyish demeanour to fool those closest to him, especially his longtime girlfriend, but how he managed to seduce some in the media and public — to the point where, revoltingly, he had actual groupies at his murder trial.Berlinger’s film, based on Liz Kloepfer’s memoir “The Phantom Prince: My Life with Ted Bundy,” happens to have coincided this year with his own docuseries on Bundy, also on Netflix. It’s clear that the feature film benefits from a documentarian’s eye; in fact it’s the frequent snippets of real-life footage that give the movie some of its most interesting moments, and make for a chilling credits sequence in which we see Bundy in real-life scenes that we’ve just watched Efron perform.By telling the story from the perspective of Kloepfer, who for years refused to believe that her handsome, law-student boyfriend could be a savage killer, Berlinger necessarily has to refrain from depicting Bundy’s crimes, so that perhaps we can fall under the same spell she does. We don’t witness his sickening violence until the film is nearly over.The problem is that by then, the approach is distracting. We all know what Bundy did — he confessed to some 30 murders right before his death, blaming pornography for his demented fantasies, and is believed to have committed many more. Yes, Berlinger is interested in telling us more about Bundy the serial deceiver than Bundy the serial killer. But we don’t learn much revealing about the deception, either. Except that women might be drawn to a guy who looks like, well, Zac Efron.Speaking of Efron: The actor, with his ultra-clean “High School Musical” image still engraved in our pop-culture memories, might seem a counter-intuitive choice, but some of his later films in which he’s pure abs and sexy smiles, in the frat house or on the beach, are more apt. The actor makes a fine career leap into the dark side here, acquitting himself nicely in a role that could have veered into caricature.Lily Collins, too, gives a sensitive and sympathetic turn as Liz, the vulnerable single mom who fell in love with Bundy and almost married him. But the actor who steals the show here is the dry and witty John Malkovich as Judge Edward Cowart, who uttered the words “extremely wicked, shockingly evil and vile” in describing the crimes for which he was sentencing Bundy to death — but also was disturbingly friendly, calling him a “bright young man” and promising lawyer, and telling him to “take care of yourself.”By this time, the film has become a courtroom drama, and we’ve almost forgotten about Liz. But it starts out as the story of a lonely young woman who meets a flirtatious guy in a bar. She thinks he may run away when he sees she’s got a toddler daughter, but he stays — and makes breakfast.Meanwhile, news reports are surfacing of terrible crimes. We toggle between sweet and sexy domestic scenes and sobering news footage. As events close in on Bundy, we see him make not one but two dramatic escapes from jail. Then comes his famous murder trial in front of TV cameras. In just one of its bizarre moments, Bundy asks his friend Carole Ann to marry him right there in the courtroom as she’s testifying on his behalf.All these events are fascinating — but they’re public record. Suddenly our narrative film seems to lose its original focus and turn into a documentary — polished and absorbing, but telling us nothing new.Some have argued that the film glorifies its subject. It doesn’t, really. But it doesn’t explain him, either. And that leads to another question, which is, if there’s nothing really new to say about Ted Bundy, need we be saying anything?“Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile,” a Netflix release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America “for disturbing/violent content, some sexuality, nudity and language.” Running time: 110 minutes. Two stars out of four.MPAA definition of R: Restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.__Follow Jocelyn Noveck on Twitter at Noveck, The Associated Presslast_img read more
