against some of the proposals laid out in governor cuomo's state budget. but he doesn't think the "our concern here is these are very big cuts..." mayor de blasio is worried that the governor's budget could spell danger for the city. "for example, we're adding 2,000 more cops. we wouldn't be able to do that in the future if we lost a billion dollars from our budget." fiscal watchdogs also say they're alarmed. cuomo's spending targets hundreds of millions in medicaid and city university funds...with more in later years. to hear cuomo tell it... his plan is one of the strongest for new york in years. he called ny1 thursday. "at the end of the day what you'll see is it won't cost new york city a penny - but we will make joint streamlining, policy efficiency changes." the city has ample surpluses, but new york's financial health is being tested by falling stock markets falling...and souring overseas economies. de blasio says the governor's plan it's not all bad. there are calls for boosted spending in housing, for instance. but the budget also doesn't fill a landmark

"this is really the beginning of a discussion." and by thursday evening...de blasio put out a statement saying he would work with cuomo on finding savings. we asked if veteran state lawmaker if this is personal. "you know the city of new york is greater than the governor, the mayor, an assemblywoman - like the people of the city of new york is a really big deal. and the state's a really big that's when the mayor releases his own spending plan. meanwhile de blasio is using some tough language when outlining how he intends to beat back cuomo's proposals." "there's a phrase from american history - by any means necessary. i would invoke that phrase."

"please identify yourself." "aid workers. we are willing to help." del toro and robbins are working in the balkans in 1995, at the end of a conflict that saw the ethnic cleansing of bosnian and croatian muslims by serbian forces. the entire movie unfolds over a 24- hour period and their task for the day is to remove a dead body from a drinking well before it becomes contaminated, and the crazy trails and tribulations they encounter along the way. getting rid of a corpse sounds like it would be an easy job, but nothing is that simple in the war torn balkans. their big obstacle is they have no rope to pull the body out. there

"the people here need water." as these characters become desensitized and unfazed by the horrors they've seen, writer/director fernando leon de aranoa has his movie play out at times like a dark comedy, sort of in the style of "mash." it's a good technique as sometimes humor is the only self survival weapon these well intentioned workers can turn to after they've been thwarted at almost every turn. "tell them not to wash the car. we don't have any money. it's a joke - tell them!" del toro and robbins are letter perfect as two counter culture guys just trying to do their necessary but thankless job and dealing with the absurdities of war. also on hand, and quite good, are olga kurylenko and melanie thierry. by focusing on a small story, the sarcastically titled "a perfect day"
