'Wind River': Opens the Floodgates of Indignation

Be warned, this is tough viewing. In service to its ugly divulgences, there are few punches pulled.

'The Only Living Boy in New York': What This World...

I've been here before ... apologist for a movie I know full well is not snootily smart, enticingly cutting edge or apt to be discussed ad nauseam over lattes in the bohemian coffee house of your choice. But it does sweetly speak to the quandaries implicit in our humanity with little pretense.

Review: Musician's Sixth Thriller A Joy to Read

He has just published his sixth installment in the series, "Spring Break." The book, like each of the earlier volumes in the series, possesses writing with equal verve and narrative skill; the adventures of the curmudgeonly and semi-jaded violinist/detective, Daniel Jacobus, are as engaging as ever.

'Menashe': The Child is Father of the Man

While director Joshua Z. Weinstein's "Menashe" is on first blush a touching look into a child custody battle being waged by Menashe, a Hasidic grocery clerk in Borough Park, Brooklyn, further reflection reveals a much larger, equal opportunity meditation about the human condition.

'The Dark Tower': Fighting Horror with Horror

The film is clearly about the war between good and evil, albeit related only coincidentally to the nightmarish battle between those forces now commanding our national stage. Whereas our real fight waits for afeared and hesitant patriots to awaken, the movie provides a quick fix of honesty and justice.

"Company" premiered in April of 1970, and while it's not quite as relevant today as it was back then – when marriage was more de rigueur – it still resonates with its humor and irony. Practically the whole show is built on irony.

Save the art, pause the sale. Save the art, pause the sale.

Review: WTF's 'Romance' Is Confusing But Promising

And that is the problem with this new, not-yet-fully-realized, small-scale musical playing through Aug. 20 at the Main Stage of the Williamstown Theatre Festival: It's very confusing. The story itself is trying to cover too much ground. As with an opera, it's best to read a story synopsis before you attend.
