What Happened This Week on ‘Westworld’ Season 3: “Genre”

It’s been said again and again that Westworld season 3 is an attempt at rebooting the show. An attempt to make up for the disappointing second season while cutting to the chase. The episodes themselves have sort of attempted this, but the latest ep, “Genre,” is the most frustrating entry to date. Because there are some big, bold, fascinating ideas here. But they’re all laid out with no real artistry. The end result is oddly inert, which is weird since there’s a ton of action in this episode, an...

Art in the age of artifice

As a magician and sleight-of-hand artist, I've been wrestling with the thorny and slippery notion of Art for a long time. A recent "magical project" rekindled my attention about this ongoing quest. Here follow my latest musings on this domain. What is Art? Art can be seen as the lifeblood running through the veins of human history. From prelinguistic cave dweller to postmodern city dweller, art stands as a witness to the evolution of every culture, reflecting and participating in our views of re...

Yann Martel: ‘Transgression is central to art’

Man Booker Prize-winning writer Yann Martel, a Canadian man, has written from the perspectives of a man with AIDS, a body-switching woman, an Indian boy, and 20th-century Portuguese widowers.Is it acceptable to write from the perspective of someone who is completely unlike you? Martel believes these transgressions put empathetic imagination into practice, allowing your mind to go where your body cannot. In Martel's case, it's the recipe for great art—books that have been loved and read by millio...

Freddie Mercury’s Vocal Doppelganger

Whatever your opinion of the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody,1 you gotta admit the music was pretty great. After all, Mercury and Queen were pretty great. But some of the credit also goes to Marc Martel, who sounds remarkably like Mercury and did some of the vocals for the film. Rami Malek embodies Mercury onscreen, but as he told The New York Times last year, “No one wants to hear me sing.” During the performance sequences in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the movie sometimes employs Mercury’s ...

Understandably, given a moviegoing public seemingly starved for reality, all of the biggest winners at this year’s Academy Awards were based on true events. And nearly all of them have generated huge controversies for the liberties they took with those true stories. While some of the criticism can sound censorious, none of it is about censorship, but about the larger social question of how much truth we should sacrifice for the sake of commerce and entertainment, two human endeavors with...

The Roman Farce

Pope Francis is conducting his extraordinary summit with cardinals on the problem of sexual abuse in the Church. And we can expect it will go nowhere.The summit is happening in light of two events outside of it. The first was Pope Francis’s recent laicization of the former cardinal archbishop of Washington, D.C., Theodore McCarrick, a man who was notorious for his sexual abuse of seminarians and other priests, while at the same time he was the public-relations face of the Church’s response to se...

Lightning Weekly Flash: Blown Leads, Comebacks & Stamkos Milestone

With the Christmas break coming to a close, the Tampa Bay Lightning are rolling right along. Despite showing a few cracks in their game last week, they have a fairly comfortable lead in both the Atlantic Division and overall NHL standings. Their eight-game win streak grounded to a halt against the Winnipeg Jets, but they managed to pick up a point by going to overtime. That positive propelled them forward with three straight wins over the Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers to ...

Lightning Top Canucks – Kucherov Reaches 50 Points

VANCOUVER — Nikita Kucherov scored and added an assist to earn his 50th point of the season to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 5-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. A feisty Canucks squad kept pace with the Lightning in a heated game marked with a flurry of fights, but they couldn’t over power the NHL’s No. 1 team. Tampa Bay has not lost in regulation since Nov. 27. Cedric Paquette, Adam Erne, Steven Stamkos and Ondrej Palat also scored for the Lightning (26-7-2). Tyler Motte and Chri...

Lightning’s Depth Is Causing Headaches

Things are going well for the Tampa Bay Lightning right now. Despite a number of high profile players suffering injuries, including Andrei Vasilevskiy, Victor Hedman, Ondrej Palat and Anton Stralman, the team is still finding ways to win with whoever is on the ice. This is due to the Lightning featuring some incredible franchise depth that allows them to fill in the gaps when needed. This depth does have one drawback, though. At some point, those injured players will get healthy and return...

Lucrecia Martel Turned Down ‘Black Widow’ Because Marvel Said “Don’t Worry About The Action Scenes” — Here’s Why It’s Not Unusual

For Marvel’s highly anticipated Black Widow movie, a solo outing that had been in demand for nearly a decade, the studio wanted to get it right. Over 65 female directors were considered at one point to direct the Scarlett Johansson vehicle, and that was slowly whittled down to a four-person shortlist. Ultimately Berlin Syndrome director Cate Shortland earned the gig, but one other high-profile female director was initially approached for the job of Black Widow director, only to turn it down. Lu...
