Don't you hate it when critics review mystery movies and give away all thelot twists? I do. So I won't reveal diddly about Tell No One, except toay that the young French director Guillaume Canet — channeling Hitchcock'sasterpiece Vertigo while working from an American mystery novel by theber-clever Harlan Coben — has fired off one terrific, twisty thriller.ot-blooded, haunting and packed with the pleasures of the unexpected, Tello One will pin you to your seat. Francois Cluzet is a marvel as Alex, the widower pediatrician who is jolted to learn that his wife MargotMarie-Josée Croze), believed murdered eight years ago, might just be alive. The acting is uniformly first-rate, with special props going to Kristencott Thomas as a lesbian married to Alex's sister, François Berléand as aly cop, the director himself as a stud with dark secrets, and Jeanochefort and André Dussollier as two fathers too devoted to their children. The movie brims over with action — check out Alex's run through traffic on the Paris beltway — but Canet scores a triumph by plumbing the violence of theind.

    “San Francisco Mabel Joy”

    Mickey Newbury | 1969

    A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
