Everything you thought about Queen Victoria is probably wrong. And that's really good news for television viewers, because the 19th century British queen we meet in PBS's upcoming drama Victoria is far more interesting than the staid, uptight and humorless caricature her reputation would suggest. ...
Too often, people use the instant access of streaming services and on-demand to simply watch whatever widely advertised, not-that-good movie was playing in the cinema just a few weeks ago. "That looks alright," you say to yourselves, settling for something that might be OK. At best. Wht not be a...
In the comic illustration world, the death of Jack Davis this week was like the loss of Picasso, except you didn't have to spend nearly as much time figuring out what it all meant. Davis, who died Wednesday at the age of 91 in St. Simons, Ga., looked like your...
I don't want to start off with my quibbles about The Golem, which the Lincoln Center Festival is presenting at the Gerald Lynch Theatre through Sunday, because I don't want anything to discourage you from seeing this ingenious and ultimately quite moving show. It's presented by 1927, a decade-old London-based...
Jason Bourne is back! And, to be honest, I kind of wish he'd stayed away.
Dinesh D'Souza's latest hate mail to the Democratic Party, the film "Hillary's America" is a tedious, cheesy, self serving slog through the unsavory underside of American History.

Changing jobs is one of the most stressful situations and actors change jobs more than anyone. Add a divorce, and things can really get nuts. On the most recent podcast of The Celebrity Dinner Party with Elysabeth Alfano, actresses Alex Kapp (The New Adventures of Old Christine)...
There's something missing in actor Matt Damon and director/writer Paul Greengrass' return to the Bourne action/spy/thriller franchise. It's hard to put your finger on it. But the brutal fight scenes, painstakingly coordinated cloak-and-dagger sequences and elaborate car chases aren't as intriguing as those in The Bourne Supremacy or The Bourne...

Tallulah is a gem - a midsummer gem, an indie gem, a Juno gem-again, a why we love small movies gem. Perfect and glittery and compact in large part because of the pristinely talented women who joined forces to crush this film that premieres Friday July 29 on Netflix and in selected theaters.
Remember when rainy summer afternoons either meant building forts in the basement, or going to the movies? Remember the movies? Amazing stories that Siskel and Ebert would bicker over as to which one was better crafted than the last? Stories we didn't want to end?
As you contemplate US leadership in this election process, it is essential to check in with the bard: in play after play he asks, what makes for a solid, dependable ruler? Shakespeare's Macbeth, a towering character, shows more flaws and foibles than any tyrant in the public eye; fear and...
It wasn't guys with rhymes who started hip-hop. It was guys with turntables, extracting five seconds of the beat from five minutes of a song. "The deejays were the ones who invented hip-hop," says Grandmaster Flash, who should know because he was one of them. "The rappers were important,...

But the new episodes distort realities of life and law in the modern women's prison, namely that the prisoners pay for not only their own mistakes, but everyone else's too. Here are 10 ways the show gets life in a women's prison all wrong.
