Venice Emerges from Quarantine - And it is Divine

Venetian Cat sunbathing on the Grand Canal at Rialto - Photo: Cat Bauer (Venice, Italy) As Venice yawns, stretches and blinks her way into the sunlight, slowly coming out of quarantine, contrasting stories emerge -- a bit like the parable of the Blind Men and the Elephant. One individual's version of reality can depend on which part of town they see, and who they talk to -- if you go here, you will see the elephant's tusk. If you go there, you will see the trunk. Or the knee. Or the ear. ...

‘I Know This Much Is True’ Review: Mark Ruffalo Delivers Two Great Performances in an Increasingly Bleak Drama

I Know This Much is True has the bad luck of arriving at a time when the majority of potential viewers are extra stressed and extra depressed. Because of the situation we now find ourselves in, I Know This Much is True is going to seem like an uphill battle for many, simply because it’s so damn bleak. While the Wally Lamb adaptation doesn’t deal with a pandemic, it does focus on mental illness, sexual abuse, parental abuse, sudden infant death syndrome, suicide, and other harrowing subjects. It...

8 men and women once sealed themselves inside this enormous fake Mars colony for 2 years. Here's what it's like today.

Biosphere 2 was a highly ambitious experiment to simulate a self-sustaining Mars colony in the Arizona desert. The 3.14-acre, bubble-like facility cost $250 million to build and operate. Eight men and women locked themselves inside for 2 years and experienced one incredible challenge after another. Though the experiment is often described as a failure, Biosphere 2's participants disagree. They say it generated science that has only grown in value as NASA and Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX, p...

In Memory of My Brother, Christian Harry Bauer IV

(Venice, Italy) My brother, Chris, died on Tuesday, February 21, 2012. I loved him very much. He was only 46-years-old.

When my brother was born, my mother said, "Finally, he has his boy. Born on his birthday." She was not referring to my father, Christian Harry Bauer III.

‘The Great’ Review: ‘The Favourite’ Writer Tony McNamara Adds a Dash of Romance to His Signature Sharp Satire

There’s something a little wicked about an anachronistic romp through history. The period drama is often upheld as the height of sophistication, the kind of genre that radiates prestige and award-winning costume designs. So when you pair that with raunchy dialogue and a sharp satirical edge that punches through the costume drama veneer like a poison-tipped sabre, it all feels so naughty. Tony McNamara seems to be making a habit out of these kind of historical indiscretions. The Oscar-winning wr...

10 Books for Summer; Or I Love a Good Beach Read

Happy May Day! When I was little girl, the first day of May meant running into the backyard in the early morning to pick forget-me-nots, dandelions, and violets to give to mother before I headed off to school.

"On the Hook, Squirming": 10 notes on the Debate Over The Wolf of Wall Street

1) How does one square an aesthetic appreciation for The Wolf of Wall Street with Jordan Belfort's real-life deplorable treatment of his victims? How much does Wolf succeed because it partakes in Belfort's cynical sales techniques, thereby making audiences just as gullible to what the movie has to sell? At what point does Martin Scorsese's lovingly rendered satirical portrait of Belfort's conspicuous consumption become a celebration of the venality of the 1%?In an attempt to answer these questio...
