Show & Tell: Hotel Mumbai Show & Tell

Show & Tell: Hotel Mumbai

Last month, we held a discussion of Cold War, a movie that explored the fate of love and art in a repressive dictatorship. Then, last week, it was a discussion of Diane, a movie that examined the consequences of a betrayal and one woman’s inability to deal with her own guilt. Each film was a cinematic masterpiece, and ranked high on critics’ lists of the best movies of the past year. Read More Read More

Show & Tell: Gloria Bell

Sometimes the calendar is on your side and sometimes it wants to give you a wedgie and throw you down the stairs. Long story short, family travels will keep me from discussing Gloria Bell on Wednesday.

Show & Tell: Burning

Some months have a character that’s pretty much set in stone. February, for instance, is usually cold enough to freeze the nuts off a steel bridge. End of story. March, on the other hand, is often a wild-card, sometimes showing bursts of strengthening sun and making us all look for the snowdrops and sometimes just hammering us with snow/sleet/slush/mud/ice, etc. Read More Read More

Show & Tell: At Eternity’s Gate

I guess we have a few hours left to us before the White Gods of Winter erase us, and all memories of us, from the face of the Earth. Or maybe it’s just another snowstorm that’s on the way, and we won’t actually need the gallons of bottled water, the candles, the freeze-dried food and the rifle for dealing with the wolves.
