ARIES (March 21-April 19) **** You might be switched out by now. In costume or not tonight, expect fun times. At the same time, you meet up with a recent interest and make plans. Use caution with any relationship you christen this weekend; the other party could be emotionally unavailable. Stay cool. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) **** The bull could easily get stuck in the pasture Friday night. Taking the heat off Friday is not bad. When you appear late Saturday with or without a date, others will smile.

Art and Craft opens with shots of an impossibly slim, small, unassuming man in his late 50s, completely bald except for a tiny ring of hair at the very back, shopping in a crafts supply store. So that's Mark A. Landis, the devilishly brilliant artist and confidence trickster who unloaded hundreds of forgeries on art museums across the country? What's he doing there? Codirected by Sam Cullman, Jennifer Grausman, and Mark Becker, Art and Craft is a thoroughly enjoyable and fascinating documentary about Landis' amazing feats as a forger and con man. For more than 20 years, until he was unmasked in 2008, Landis forged hundreds of pieces of art - from ancient illuminated manuscript pages to watercolors, drawings, and paintings by Louis Valtat, Paul Signac, Marie Laurencin, Stanislas Lépine, and Daumier.
