    Review: 2012 Domaine Louis Michel & Fils Chablis 'Premier Cru Forêts'
    There's nothing like a Chablis. In this northern reach of Burgundy, Chardonnay takes on an entirely different character. A good example, such as this premier cru "Forêts" from Domaine Louis Michel, is characteristically lean and chiseled yet has a...

  • Review: 'California' by Edan Lepucki

    Review: 'California' by Edan Lepucki
    Much drama has befallen California this year. And not only in real life — that endless drought — but in fiction, as authors have made the Golden State the site of several ambitious works. At the far edge of the continent, it's a good place for...
  • 'Whitey' documentary indicts more than just James J. Bulger

    'Whitey' documentary indicts more than just James J. Bulger
    The bad guy in "Whitey: The United States of America v. James J. Bulger" is ostensibly Bulger. But Joe Berlinger's densely detailed new documentary about the legendary Boston mobster is disturbing on so many levels it's hard not to wonder why Bulger was...

    'The Battered Bastards of Baseball' a fun, true underdog tale
    The Portland Mavericks, an independent minor league baseball team that played for five seasons in the 1970s, didn't run with the pack. Owner Bing Russell, a Hollywood B-actor and lifelong baseball devotee, stocked the team's roster through a tryout ad...

  • Restaurant review: Frenchy's on Park Avenue in Winter Park

    Restaurant review: Frenchy's on Park Avenue in Winter Park
    Frenchy's is the newest bistro to call Winter Park's Park Avenue home. The space has been nicely transformed. The only hint of its former life as Sweet Traditions bakery is the pastry case up front. The eatery is anchored by a long banquette that runs...
  • Review: 'Deliver Us From Evil' ★★

    Review: 'Deliver Us From Evil' ★&#9733
    Classed up by its cast, "Deliver Us From Evil" concludes with a deliverance from evil in the form of a rip-roaring exorcism, simply staged in a police interrogation room, though goosed up with the usual barrage of digital effects. Routine in nearly...
  • Review: 'Tammy' ★★ 1/2

    Review: 'Tammy' ★&#9733 1/2
    Small favors, but in "Tammy" we have a less grating road-trip comedy than "Identity Thief," the one Melissa McCarthy did with Jason Bateman, and a more deliberately heartwarming vehicle than "The Heat," featuring McCarthy and Sandra Bullock. In...
  • A badly jumbled 'Moment' gets lost in a woman's mind

    A badly jumbled 'Moment' gets lost in a woman's mind
    "The Moment" is a psychological thriller more muddled than the mind and the maze it is caught up in. Director Jane Weinstock, who co-wrote the screenplay with Gloria Norris, is deconstructing a series of traumas that have left one woman catatonic and...
