Inside Llewyn Davis is a compassionate reminder of how hard it is to be an artist, and of the great legacy musicians leave behind.

At a time when a director insists on putting hip-hop music into a Roaring Twenties period picture, I'm grateful for the Coen Brothers. Just why am I grateful? Well, let me count the ways.

It's quite a feat to pull off gloomy Henrik Ibsen in hipster Brooklyn, but that's precisely what takes place at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's (BAM) production of Ibsen's The Master Builder, starring one of the borough's favorite sons, the always-versatile John Turturro.

I love St. Patrick's Day. It's so inclusive. By that I mean that though it's a bona fide religious holiday, you don't need to be particularly pious to enjoy it. Wishing everyone a safe and (reasonably) responsible holiday, I present my own candidates for the top drinking movies of all time.

Mike Ryan

"Living a lie," seems a tad too dramatic of a way of admitting that I had never seen The Big Lebowski. I mean, I never technically lied to anyone about this. No one has ever asked me if I've seen The Big Lebowski because, at this point, everyone just assumes that I have seen The Big Lebowski.
