Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz has announced his candidacy for President of the United States. While critics, including some in his own party, dismiss him, Cruz is a smart, shrewd and brash politician. He is also arrogant, self-confident and power-hungry.

Movie Review: Black Sea -- In Deep Water

Marshall Fine | Posted 03.23.2015 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

Black Sea, a crisply tense film from Kevin MacDonald, is always compelling and even, occasionally, surprising. While submarine films inspire the guessing game of who will be the next to die horribly and who might survive, Black Sea never quite goes where you expect it, thanks to the script by British playwright Dennis Kelly.

Yellowing Journalism

It is both fascinating and disturbing to gain a peek back in time, with the grand benefit of history and hindsight, and the wonder of it all. Unfortunately -- unforgivably -- and despite great strides across the land and around the world, anti-Semitism continues to rear its ugly head to this day.

Clay Farris Naff

Who are these guys, why are they so awful, and how can we account for their success? Many are trying to find specific answers, a few resort to racist slurs, but I hope to get to the heart of the matter by framing the questions in evolutionary psychology.

Anti-Semitism in Europe and Kansas City

I certainly hope the murders in Kansas City are the responsibility of a raving lunatic. Even if so, the evidence elsewhere should give us pause. And where Nazism raises its head, we should be there in opposition.

Tom Alderman

Human Smoke is chock-full of small, often powerful but unrelated scenes. What you get is a Jackson Pollack painting in audio: a lot of vivid colors and absolutely no shape to any of it. It's a helter-skelter of disjointed events and it's up to us to connect the dots.
