  • In 'Death Comes to Pemberley,' a brisk mystery in Austen-land

    In 'Death Comes to Pemberley,' a brisk mystery in Austen-land
    That Jane Austen failed to write a murder-mystery sequel to "Pride and Prejudice" was an oversight remedied in 2011 by P.D. James with her novel "Death Comes to Pemberley." Like "P&P" and many other Austens before it — and many of James' own works,...
  • The Gadarene Swine is a carnivore chef's complicated vegan venture

    The Gadarene Swine is a carnivore chef's complicated vegan venture
    The pleasures of veganism, not so long ago the far frontier of meat-free dining, are not as elusive as they used to be. The strictures of raw-food enthusiasts, macrobiotic restaurants and paleo devotees make the demands of vegans, who demand only that...
  • Broadway's 'Disgraced' Opens: Itch-Scratching and Mini Reunions

    Playwright Ayad Akhtar has seen his Pulitzer Prize winning play "Disgraced" open in productions around the country and around the world. But the show's opening on Broadway Oct. 23 was still a bigger deal. Literally bigger. "We'd never done it for me than...
  • Rome Film Review: 'Angels of Revolution'

    LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Coming from Russian maverick Aleksey Fedorchenko, the words "based on actual events" form a less concrete promise than they do from most filmmakers; few have demonstrated such a remarkable facility for fabricated folklore. It's...
  • Antonio Banderas Ups Production, Direction Priorities

    MADRID - Antonio Banderas is not done yet. Currently shooting "Altamira" - his first majority Spanish film in two decades, outside his own productions and collaborations with Pedro Almodóvar - Banderas, one of Spain's biggest Hollywood success stories,...
  • 'Constantine' haunted by the ghost of a story

     'Constantine' haunted by the ghost of a story
    Even though John Constantine may not look like most heroes in the DC Universe — his costume is nothing more than a yellow trenchcoat and his constant smoking (at least in the comics) is something Superman would tsk-tsk — he's still one of...
  • Review: 2015 Acura TLX is comfortable, competent and quiet

    Honda may build some of the most popular and competitive cars in the country, but that doesn't mean its Acura formalwear division has the same mojo. Acura's petite ILX and its full-size RLX are forgettable sedans that trail their competitors in nearly...
  • 'Rhymes for Young Ghouls' shows the bleak can get bleaker

    'Rhymes for Young Ghouls' shows the bleak can get bleaker
    Starting off grim and growing ever grimmer, “Rhymes for Young Ghouls” is a blood- and booze-soaked revenge drama marking the impressive debut of filmmaker Jeff Barnaby. Set on the Red Crow Mi’gMaq reservation in Quebec, Canada,...
  • 'The Hilltop' views everyday absurdism in occupied territories

    'The Hilltop' views everyday absurdism in occupied territories
    Assaf Gavron's 2010 novel "Almost Dead" does something I would have thought impossible — it makes satire out of terrorism. The story of a man who becomes an Israeli national hero after surviving three attacks in a single week, the book offers a...
  • Review: 'Consumed' by David Cronenberg

    Review: 'Consumed' by David Cronenberg
    Canadian director David Cronenberg's most distinctive visual quirk is his tendency to shoot everything with the same lens. Most filmmakers come to the set with four or five lenses; they'll use a telephoto lens for a close-up, a 50mm lens for a medium...
  • Film Review: 'Birdman' flies high with stellar performances

    Film Review: 'Birdman' flies high with stellar performances
    I’ve spent much of my life as an editor, so let me get something off my chest. It’s hard to know which elements of the title of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s new film are his work and which come from some graphic designer. The ads call...
