Former Gogol Bordello Guitarist Sues Singer


Gogol Bordello Eugene Hutz

Oren Kaplan, who left the band in 2012, alleges Hutz has taken more than $500,000 (£312,500) from the group without permission. He is asking for $950,000 (£593,750) in personal damages, and claims the singer "tricked" other band members into signing consent forms to kick Kaplan out of the group.

According to the suit, the pair once shared accounting duties for the band, but in 2009 Hutz took sole charge and upped his salary to $130,000 (£81,250) while Kaplan was paid just $57,000 (£36,625).

The legal documents state, "Hutz brazenly absconded with approximately half a million dollars from the bank accounts of the Gogol Bordello entities and deposited those funds into the accounts of new companies which are wholly owned by Hutz."

Gogol Bordello Frontman Sued By Former Guitarist


Gogol Bordello Eugene Hutz

Former Gogol Bordello songwriter and guitarist Oren Kaplan is suing frontman Eugene Hutz over allegations the singer ousted him from the group and cut him out of profits.

Kaplan filed papers against his ex-bandmate at New York's Manhattan Supreme Court on Friday (26Jul13), accusing Hutz of tricking other members into signing "consent forms" to boot the musician from the line-up in 2012.

The dismissal caused Kaplan to stop receiving royalty payments from Gogol Bordello's songs and banned him from accessing the group's funds.

Everything Is Illuminated Review


Grim
The trick with movie adaptations is that they must stand on their own, without relying on a viewer's familiarity with the source material. In fact, a filmmaker's sensitivity with film form can be gauged by how well he or she molds non-cinematic elements into their cinematic counterparts while retaining the essence of the source -- its meaning and effect. For his debut as writer-director, Liev Schreiber tries to get his arms around a difficult novel -- Jonathan Safran Foer's own debut, the remarkable Everything Is Illuminated. Considering the actor-turned-director's inexperience behind the camera, Schreiber might've been better off choosing a less complicated book-to-film project.

Foer's novel pitches the reader between the past and the present, between a magical-realist historical chronicle and the first-person reflections of a Ukrainian translator who makes hilarious mincemeat of the English language. Foer's story follows the journey undertaken by an obsessive personal historian -- named Jonathan Safran Foer -- from New York to the remote Ukrainian village from which his grandfather escaped under the shadow of the Nazis. Accompanying him are the malapropism-prone Alex and Alex's irascible and eccentric grandfather who has ghosts of his own to bury. For all its stylistic bric-a-brac, the ideas of reconciling with the past and of survivors struggling to exorcise themselves of guilt resonate eloquently throughout the novel.
