Liberal/Miserable

Written by Godfrey Cheshire on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

Directed by I.B. Mizrable The most emblematic bit of action in Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s Rosetta occurs twice, and both times it’s not of great thematic moment, just curious–oddly curious. The Belgian film concerns a teenage girl who’s obsessed with getting a job, and who occasionally fishes in a river near the trailer park where [&hellip

A Hideous and Ghastly Halloween Week

Written by Adam Heimlich on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

For pretty much that reason I advise steering clear of the annual Halloween Parade.

Well, at least it’s scary. (10/31, from [&hellip

Magnificent Oddity

Written by Jonathan Kalb on . Posted in Posts, Theater

Magnificent Oddity For the third year in a row, before the theater season is two months old, I’ve seen a production that I’m sure–without prejudice to any future show–will be one of the pinnacles of my year. In 1997 I had this feeling with Ivo van Hove’s version of O’Neill’s More Stately Mansions. In 1998 [&hellip
