  • Movie review: Lovely 'A Little Chaos' could have used a little more ... chaos

    "A Little Chaos" is an overlong ditty of a movie, Alan Rickman's amusingly fanciful version of how a famous outdoor ballroom in the gardens of Versailles came to be. He directed and co-stars with his "Sense and Sensibility" love interest, Kate Winslet,...
  • Movie review: 'Max' not mighty but has some bark

    Director Boaz Yakin along with his co-writer, Sheldon Lettich were already halfway to a solid family film by making a boy and his dog the central theme of "Max," which tells the story of a family that takes in a military dog traumatized after a tragedy....
  • Review: Miguel Zenon's compelling art of accessibility

    Review: Miguel Zenon's compelling art of accessibility
    Exactly how saxophonist Miguel Zenon makes a music at once complex yet readily accessible remains one of the mysteries of his art. For Zenon offers no compromises when it comes to the intricacies of his lines, the irregularities of his rhythms or the...
  • Jon & Vinny's is a sort of contemporary art take on a pizza joint

    Jon & Vinny's is a sort of contemporary art take on a pizza joint
    The best vantage of Jon & Vinny's, the new pizzeria across the street from Canter's Delicatessen, may be from Helen's, the tiny, glassed-in wine shop behind the dining room. Helen's is superbly air-conditioned, even on a miserable summer day, and the...
  • A 'Goldfish' escaping down Route 66

    A 'Goldfish' escaping down Route 66
    Back in 2008, the Route 66 Theatre Company made its debut with a fine production of a memorable play by John Kolvenbach, “On an Average Day.” That quotidian title kept swimming around my head as I sat among a small audience watching a Sunday...
  • 'Love & Mercy': A worthy musical biopic ignored

    'Love & Mercy': A worthy musical biopic ignored
    It's in theaters, and only recently in wide release. But up against the monster hits "Jurassic World" and "Inside Out" a modestly scaled winner such as "Love & Mercy" has had a difficult time getting noticed this summer. It's not fair. Director Bill...
  • Beethoven's messy opera 'Fidelio' is in fine hands in San Francisco

     Beethoven's messy opera 'Fidelio' is in fine hands in San Francisco
    "Fidelio" is opera's never-ending fixer-upper. Beethoven's only opera and the score the composer spent the most time on almost never works, yet it is all but indestructible. Beethoven attempts to appropriate and transform operatic methods of his day,...
  • Madcapra wraps a bit more of Brooklyn into flatbread with falafel

    Madcapra wraps a bit more of Brooklyn into flatbread with falafel
    Madcapra, my friend Gillian insists, is not a falafel stand. And in several respects I may even agree. Its chefs, Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson, come to Madcapra from Glasserie, a well-regarded restaurant in a gloriously inconvenient corner of Brooklyn....
  • Review: Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett span eras at Ravinia

    Review: Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett span eras at Ravinia
    Did that really happen? Did an 88-year-old singer and a 29-year-old pop star really perform more than 30 songs without intermission, dance cheek to cheek onstage, whisper frequently into each other’s ears and, along the way, convey a sense of...
  • 'Manglehorn' review: Pacino as lonely locksmith

     'Manglehorn' review: Pacino as lonely locksmith
    Al Pacino follows up his recent, nicely tuned turn in "Danny Collins" with another sensitively rooted performance, playing a lonely locksmith with a tamper-proof heart in director David Gordon Green's "Manglehorn." In the tenderly observed character...
  • 'Ted 2' is overstuffed and absurd but wickedly funny

    One joke in "Ted 2" potentially offends women, African Americans, couples struggling with infertility, sufferers of blood disorders, people who make medical shelving and the Kardashians. I laughed so hard at it that I waited for security to emerge from...
