Every Sofia Coppola Film Ranked From Worst To Best

Sofia Coppola is an auteur. While the usefulness and validity of that term is up for debate, Coppola is a director that fits that description completely. Her films have a particular look, one that you can recall simply by hearing her name, and share many common themes. Coppola likes how the sun looks as it peeks through the leaves. She lingers on her characters' inner lives, and she finds herself returning again and again to the topic of fame, illuminating both its pressure and its allure. Much ...

Dan Stevens, who plays a charming robot in ‘I’m Your Man,’ says humans are weird

When Alma, an archaeologist who spends her days studying ancient worlds, agrees to test a humanoid robot designed to be the perfect mate, she does it unenthusiastically, mostly to appease her boss and help fund her studies. Played by Maren Eggert in the new film “I’m Your Man,” Alma is resistant to the charms of Tom, even though he is programmed to match her needs and desires. Also, he looks like Dan Stevens.    Stevens, the British actor who rose to fame in “Downton Abbey” and has since star...

Tacos and cocktails play nicely together at the lively Roadside Taco in Studio City

Roadside Taco (which is not to be confused with Roadside Tacos in Carlisle, Iowa!) is not where you go for a quiet, contemplative meal with an old friend who’s going through a midlife crisis, and needs a shoulder to cry on. It’s where you go with a bunch of homies who want to drown their crisis — midlife or otherwise — in an ocean of exotic margaritas, accompanied by piles of tacos, mountains of nachos, heaps of street corn, and globs of guacamole. You go to this Studio City phenomenon with the ...

In his novel about the aftermath of 9/11, Black 47’s Larry Kirwan recalls the days after the attacks

By David Bauder Larry Kirwan traces the roots of his novel “Rockaway Blue” to the Saturday night after Sept. 11, 2001, when the band he led, Black 47, played Connolly’s Pub in Manhattan.

As the weather changed, my radio picked up an Orange County station I’d never heard before

Low-power FM radio stations are tough to come by in Southern California. Not that there isn’t interest in launching them, and not that there actually aren’t any. The problem is that commercial stations in San Diego, Riverside, Orange, Los Angeles, and even Santa Barbara counties fill every available frequency, and the weather often allows the commercial stations to cover vast areas … meaning that supposedly distant stations can overpower the low-power FM station (or LPFM as they are called) even...

Pretty in Prefix

Should I write пре or при? Whether you are a beginner Russian learner or a native speaker, dealing with these two prefixes is a handful. Actually, dealing with all the prefixes in Russian can be overwhelming without some of them sounding almost exactly the same. Is it приле́чь or прелечь на дива́н (to lie down on the couch for a bit)? Do I say я хочу́ премерить or приме́рить э́тот сви́тер? (I want to try on this sweater). Can both prefixes be used with the same word and give it different meaning...

Time for a Sing-Along: A Guide to the Many Movie Musicals of 2021

Hollywood loves musicals — and so does everyone else. In the last couple of years, big titles like La La Land and Bohemian Rhapsody have swooped in to steal audience affection and rekindle Hollywood’s belief in the genre. We may have forgotten our love for a while there, but it never truly faded. It’s partially due to the very thing that makes musicals so joyous — their inherent nostalgia. Everyone has a musical movie they grew up watching and can still skillfully sing along to. They have a chi...
