  • Movie review: Ancient Maori warriors spill a lot of blood in �Dead Lands�

    Those scowling, tattoo-faced and tongue-licking haka displays that New Zealand's Maori people trot out for tourists and rugby fans are put to their original purpose in "The Dead Lands," an unblinkingly fierce and bloody tale of slaughter and revenge. Set...
  • Review: The Broadway Boys at Orlando Cabaret Festival

     Review: The Broadway Boys at Orlando Cabaret Festival
    The 13th Orlando Cabaret Festival opened Friday night with headliners The Broadway Boys, six likable lads down from New York. Early in their 70-minute set, they broke into "Willkommen" from Kander and Ebb's "Cabaret." It would be fun to think they threw...
  • Brit singer Rumer dazzles, demurs at Hollywood Forever's Masonic Lodge

    Brit singer Rumer dazzles, demurs at Hollywood Forever's Masonic Lodge
    The British singer known as Rumer inhabits a world of borrowed artifacts. Her voice recalls that of Karen Carpenter. Her look is very Laura Nyro. And her song “Aretha” wasn’t just inspired by the legendary soul star – it literally...
  • Review: Muhlenberg presents thought-provoking take on 'Romeo and Juliet'

    A gritty urban setting, a multiracial cast and undercurrent of civil unrest give Muhlenberg's "Romeo and Juliet" a modern, edgy vibe. Director Troy Dwyer decided to use Shakespeare's romantic tragedy to open a dialogue on race relations and police...
  • Movie review: �Monkey Kingdom� reveals a revolution in cuteness

    "Monkey Kingdom," Disneynature's latest Earth Day offering, is an intriguing peek inside the social structure of macaque monkey society in Sri Lanka. So while it's got plenty of cute macaque monkeys, playing and cavorting, there's also a little social...
  • Review: In Fiat 500X's lineup, stick with the all-wheel-drive option

    Review: In Fiat 500X's lineup, stick with the all-wheel-drive option
    I used to own a Fiat convertible. It was cute but broke down so often that I quickly understood why people said "Fiat" stood for "Fix It Again, Tony." I also once watched a man load the front seat of a 1960s Fiat 500 with boulders and push it off a...
  • Review: 'The Forger'

    The stakes shouldn't feel as low as they do in "The Forger." An art theft thriller about stealing one of the most famous paintings by Claude Monet should have been a suspenseful peek into the criminal art forger's craft, a Boston underworld character...
  • Bychkov, CSO make Bruckner's 80-minute journey gripping

     Bychkov, CSO make Bruckner's 80-minute journey gripping
    Basking in the burnished glow of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's performance of Anton Bruckner's monumental Eighth Symphony on Thursday night at Symphony Orchestra, one found it hard to believe this was long thought to be a problem piece. So...
  • Review: 'Adult Beginners'

    Review: 'Adult Beginners'
    With an awful lot of American indies, there appears to be some sort of self-regulation in place preventing any serious highs or lows, any stylistic risks or surprises. Even if the scripts juggle comedy and drama in quick succession, it's as if they're...
  • Rhiannon Giddens brought humility, magic to the Vic

    Rhiannon Giddens brought humility, magic to the Vic
    With a voice so powerful it could scorch the rafters, Rhiannon Giddens has the pipes of a genuine diva. But her attitude is humble and her personality is down to earth. That rare and winning combination made her a deeply disarming headliner at the Vic...
  • Review: 'Little Boy'

    Review: 'Little Boy'
    "Little Boy" answers a question most tear-jerkers wouldn't have the nerve to ask: Can the bombing of Hiroshima be manipulated narratively, if briefly, into a position of warming our hearts? The answer is no. The film's D-Day-like assault on our...
