Away We Go

Away We Go is breezy and summer-appropriate -- but its central couple still has problems.

Summer of Same: June 2009

This month's "original" fare offers a take on a Sid and Marty Krofft classic, more battling seizure robots, and the retaking of '70s subway thriller. Everything old is new again.

Woolf at the Door

Both Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway and Michael Cunningham's The Hours offer an illuminating look at the choices we make, the roles we play, and the hours that hinge our lives together.

Reviews

Juno

Teens have their precious catchphrases and secret languages, but they're nervous, fumbling creatures. They don’t come equipped with Chaucer-like witticisms, or razor-sharp retorts.

Reviews

The Ice Storm

The general fuzzed-out sense of malaise that Lee is able to tap into while exploring the Nixon-era sexual revolution (and repression and adventure), creates a point of view that both ruthlessly observes and empathizes with these alien suburbanites.

Performance Art: The Best Acting of 2007 - Female

From the most sweetly nuanced performance of Jennifer Jason Leigh's career to Cate Blanchett's revelatory portrayal of Bob Dylan in I'm Not There, the women of 2007 were stellar.

Reviews

Juno

A movie about a 16-year-old girl's unplanned pregnancy, Juno manages to avoid any significant emotional depths, despite its plainly complex subject.

It Felt Fluid and Rhythmic: An Interview with Diablo Cody and Ellen Page

The story in Juno is unpredictable and touching. But Cody's dialogue is exceptional, a flurry of hip, witty words that snap and dissipate before you can accuse them of being too stylized.

Part 4 - Feasts from the Fringe

Cable created supply where there was little or no demand. Out of the myriad of subject specific programming, a few gemstones managed to shine.

Reviews

The West Wing

There are growing overlaps between politics, news, and entertainment. Hard news has taken a back seat to feature journalism and talk shows, real politics to realpolitik.

David Swerdlick
Reviews

The West Wing

The West Wing has locked itself into philosophical stasis, determined to air its liberal credentials via Bartlett and his staff yet equally determined never to challenge the status quo.

How to Deal (2003)

What's not to love about Mandy Moore?"

Cynthia Fuchs
Reviews

The Hours (2002)

'What I learned seeing the movie is that yes, you do lose that ability to go into people's minds, but you gain Meryl Streep's ability to separate an egg, in a way that tells you everything you need to know about who that person is at that point.'"

The Hours (2002)

The women are also functions of a coherent narrative, made comprehensible as embodiments of historical patterns.
