"...Starring: Salma Hayek, Alfred Molina, Geoffrey Rush, Ashley Judd, Antonio Banderas, Edward Norton and Valeria Golino. Frida Kahlo, the Mexican surrealist, feminist icon, bon vivant, and revolutionary populist, lived a life that has been begging for a film version since her death in 1954 (although her parting shot -- “I hope the end is joyful, and I hope never to come back” -- might suggest otherwise)..."
"...See Compadres for homework) as a thief released from prison, who discovers that his long-lost loot, once buried in a school playground, is now under a recently built school gymnasium. That school is the Frida Kahlo High School (now the title makes sense!)..."
"...Later on, she rediscovers the two men, Goh (Murata) and Tochi (Nakahara), in a gay bar and, learning that they have nowhere to be together that night (Tochi is married and Goh's mother has invaded his “bachelor” pad), Sayoko offers them the use of a room in her tiny apartment. While they are upstairs trysting, Sayoko is downstairs thumbing through a coffee table book of Frida Kahlo paintings..."
"...In the jewelry she makes, Tunchez incorporates gemstones that she searches for in her travels, keeping some pieces simple while making others, like her Mayan textile earrings, with more complex woven designs. Sometimes she includes folk imagery and iconography from Latinx cultures, such as the unique portraits of Frida Kahlo..."
"...This time of year, most talk about the University of Texas concerns the football team, but the arts may generate some chatter this week with the news of two major commissions: from public art program Landmarks, a massive mural by José Parlá and from the College of Fine Arts, an opera about Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera...."

"...414 Barton Springs Road 476-4838 September 12 6:30pm What better way to kick off a week of Dies y Sies celebrations than to attend a benefit for Mexic-Arte Museum featuring the recipes of famed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo? Fridamaniacs and Mexican food lovers alike can pay $50 to spend an evening with Guadalupe Rivera, author of Frida's Fiestas - Recipes and Reminiscences of Life with Frida Kahlo.

"...In a program note, Hart described her experience performing, years ago, in Minneapolis choreographer Wynn Fricke's "Two Fridas" as "pivotal." The work, based on Frida Kahlo's painting The Two Fridas and performed by guest dancers Anais Di Filippo and Francesca Dugarte, both originally from Venezuela, was second on the program, continuing the Performa/Dance ethos of presenting work from Hart's contemporaries alongside her own work. In Fricke's riffs on the painting, in which two versions of Kahlo sit side by side on a bench, the dancers morphed between mirroring each other and becoming conjoined, exploring the dualities and inescapable tethers – among them, physical distress and pain – that are the subjects of the Kahlo painting...."

The book is arranged month by month, with recipes for corresponding celebrations such as Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and Diez y Sies (September 16)..."
"...She became “the most macha of all the machos,” observes one of the film’s commentators. With her short-cropped hair and androgynous appearance, she was known as a great seducer of women, with wives of diplomats and bold-faced names like Frida Kahlo and Ava Gardner among her amorous dalliances..."
"..."Dumb is sexy" is another of the film’s arguments, one that can hardly be argued with a straight face in the, um, face of Paris Hilton and her Internet ilk. From Fifties-era "duck and cover" exercises to the surreal questioning of actress Salma Hayek by a media member who is overeager to know how she felt wearing a unibrow while portraying artist Frida Kahlo, Stupidity is relentless in its pursuit of an intellectual handle on a decidedly anti-intellectual topic..."
"...Many of the themes you've come to expect with 20th-century Mexican art are present, including the Mexican Revolution, Día de los Muertos, and the struggle of the working class to break the bonds of poverty and political isolation. There are the obligatory photos of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo (by Guillermo Zamora), who are no doubt two of Mexico's most inspiring artists from the last century, though I wondered if the images would have been part of the museum's permanent collection had the subjects been less well-known..."
"...Blossoms of Fire is a bright, amiable chronicle of the vivid lives of the women of Juchitán, a small, sun-soaked city on the Isthmus of Tehuantepec in Oaxaca, Mexico. The Tehuantepec women are already famous -- from the paintings of Miguel Covarrubias and Frida Kahlo, from their embroidered handicrafts, and from their prominent role in the COCEI, the political party that challenged the long-standing single-party rule of the PRI and has maintained a foothold in the region since 1989..."
"...AC: How do you re-create the personalities of these very distinct historical voices like Rivera or Frida Kahlo and Xavier Villaurrutia? How much freedom do you feel in giving them voices?..."
"...Matt Dillon and Denzel Washington premiered their directorial debuts (City of Ghosts and Antwone Fisher, respectively). Salma Hayek shepherded Frida to the screen as both producer and star, and delivers a sterling performance as the artist Frida Kahlo, as does Alfred Molina as her womanizing husband and mentor Diego Rivera..."
