  • 'Gotham' is Batman & Co. before they were Batman & Co.

      'Gotham' is Batman & Co. before they were Batman & Co.
    It's possibly a minority opinion in these comics-crazy days, but I find it something of a relief that there's no Batman in "Gotham," a well-assembled new series set in the future Dark Knight's hometown in the time before he put on the cape and the cowl....
  • Review: 'Tracks' ★★★ 1/2

    Review: 'Tracks' ★★★ 1/2
    All filmgoers have their blind spots, their sore spots and their limits. You may, for example, read about the new film "Tracks," based on the 1980 travel memoir by Robyn Davidson. If Davidson's story is foreign to you, and you know only that the film's...
  • Review: 'The Equalizer' ★★

    Review: 'The Equalizer' ★★
    Based loosely on the 1985-1989 television series, on which Edward Woodward never stuck garden shears in an enemy's throat and never, ever stabbed anyone through the neck with a corkscrew, "The Equalizer" smells like a hit. But I wish it had one completely...
  • Film Review: 'Kill the Messenger'

    LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Though he has four theatrical features under his belt, director Michael Cuesta is perhaps best known for his work on TV series "Homeland" and "Six Feet Under," and perhaps the worst one can say about his new feature, "Kill...
  • ABC's 'black-ish' gamely takes on racial identity

    Into a culture perpetually roiling over the role of race comes a comedy that questions America's fairly recent quest to become colorblind. As its title implies, Kenya Barris' "black-ish," premiering Wednesday on ABC, will not be pussyfooting around...
  • 'How to Get Away With Murder' keeps spotlight on Viola Davis

    'How to Get Away With Murder' keeps spotlight on Viola Davis
    Many things have changed about television lately, but murder still makes the world go 'round. An astonishing variety of characters, environments and scenarios can be wrapped around the sturdy framework of a crime/legal procedural and coaxed into bloom....
  • San Sebastian Film Review: 'Felix and Meira'

    LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Felix, a middle-aged atheist adrift without family ties, and Meira, a young Hasidic woman feeling lost and smothered under nearly the opposite circumstances, find tentative connection in one another in Canadian helmer Maxime...
  • Amazon's transgender transition 'Transparent' astonishes

    Sometimes a slow start pays off. Netflix may have overshadowed Amazon's entrance into the world of original-content "television," but the site formerly known as a bookstore is stepping into the klieg lights and undoubtedly onto the red carpet with...
  • Review: Sean Jones trumpets high-energy jazz

    Review: Sean Jones trumpets high-energy jazz
    The powerhouse quartet that trumpeter Sean Jones led Thursday night at the Jazz Showcase hit hard from the outset and never let up. Sure, Jones played ballads and blues, but even at his most introspective, he conveyed considerable melodic ardor and...
  • For Muti and CSO, quality of sound as important as quantity

     For Muti and CSO, quality of sound as important as quantity
    Riccardo Muti's first full week of subscription concerts with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Symphony Center continues the music director's preparation of repertory he and the orchestra will be taking to five European countries in October and November....
  • 'Pride' has a moving force that highlights a forgotten story

    'Pride' has a moving force that highlights a forgotten story
    If you think unions are the scourge of the working world, you will not be happy at "Pride," which begins with the unmistakable sound of Pete Seeger singing "Solidarity Forever" and goes on from there. But "Pride" has other things on its mind besides...
