  • A lesson in up-to-date good taste at Gjusta in Venice

    A lesson in up-to-date good taste at Gjusta in Venice
    To get to Gjusta, you tool past Santa Monica's Main Street boutiques, past Jonathan Borofsky's leering ballerina clown on the corner of Main and Rose, and turn left just after the giant Claes Oldenburg binoculars that mark Google's Los Angeles offices....
  • TV review: 'Last Man' a standout among new sitcoms

    'LAST MAN ON EARTH' When: 9 and 9:30 p.m. Eastern, Sunday, Fox It's hard to imagine Fox's funny, entertaining and pretty original "Last Man on Earth" becoming a hit, but the same could have at one time been said about "The Lego Movie" and the screen...

    Dual road trips -- then and now -- to "Appomattox'
    “Union” and “civil war” prove increasingly double-edged terms along “The Road to Appomattox,” Catherine Bush’s 2010 play making its West Coast premiere at Burbank’s Colony Theatre. Two parallel stories set...
  • Review: 'What We Do in the Shadows'

    Review: 'What We Do in the Shadows'
    Eighty-five minutes of really funny, the New Zealand vampire mockumentary "What We Do in the Shadows" comes from the "Flight of the Conchords" folks and their pals. Let me restate: This is a comedy that works. It knows how to sustain a premise and...
  • Devastating 'Hunting Ground' documents shocking prevalence of campus rape

    Documentary director Kirby Dick and producer Amy Ziering can often be found in the eye of a hurricane. Three years ago, they teamed up on "The Invisible War," and now they are back with the equally devastating "The Hunting Ground." The former film, an...
  • CSO and Muti hit the right notes, but miss the full emotion

    CSO and Muti hit the right notes, but miss the full emotion
    Russian music of the 19th and 20th centuries remains strongly loved the world over, yet for at least 50 years most Western musicians have approached it as if it were an embarrassment. Performances may have had tastefulness, high color and visceral...
  • 'Queen & Country' a so-so sequel to 'Hope and Glory'

     'Queen & Country' a so-so sequel to 'Hope and Glory'
    John Boorman's 1987 masterpiece "Hope and Glory" was autobiographical gold, a young boy's fevered view of the London Blitz: surviving Nazi bombs was fun, but a family on edge? Yikes. Now comes the 82-year-old master's long-awaited sequel, "Queen &...
  • 'Drunktown's Finest' a didactic look at Navajo life

    'Drunktown's Finest' a didactic look at Navajo life
    "Longmire" has done an admirable job portraying Native Americans, but one TV series is hardly enough to sustain a presence in the public consciousness. That's why it's crucial to make room for something like "Drunktown's Finest" by Navajo filmmaker Sydney...
  • Theater review: 'Henry V' from Orlando Shakespeare Theater

    Theater review: 'Henry V' from Orlando Shakespeare Theater
    The text of "Henry V" gives theater directors ideas on how to stage the William Shakespeare drama. In the play, probably written at the end of the 1590s, a narrator of sorts exhorts audience members to use their imaginations to picture the great battles...
  • Aging protagonists in 'Roxie' slowed by dated premise

     Aging protagonists in 'Roxie' slowed by dated premise
    It's so rare for an American film to boast a pair of 60-year-old protagonists, you wish "Roxie" had been much better than the squirm-inducing, aging-white-male fantasy that emerges. With a dated premise that could have been a Jack Lemmon-Walter...
  • 'Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead' breathes life into zombie genre

    'Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead' breathes life into zombie genre
    Has every zombie story been told? Probably. Die-rise-chomp doesn't offer much variation. But there will always be a committed few who approach this popular horror subset with the enthusiasm and insouciance of successful used-car sales folk. Such is...
