‘Audrey’ Trailer: A Documentary That Hopes To Show the Real Audrey Hepburn

The new documentary Audrey wants to go beyond the famous image of Hollywood star Audrey Hepburn and show the real person underneath.

Live from Covent Garden review, Royal Opera House: a jolly mix of popular arias and pas de deux

This was a bit more like it. After a weirdly arcane first concert and a second one austerely devoted to the sublime heights of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde, the Royal Opera House knuckled down to the equally noble and needful business of cheering us all up. Streamed live from an audience-less Covent Garden, here was a jolly programme of operatic plums, sung by charming members of the opera’s resident young artists scheme, interspersed with two exquisitely beautiful pas de deux, danced by off-s...

Universal Releasing an Updated Version of ‘Cats’ with “Improved Visual Effects”

The big screen adaptation of the Broadway musical Cats is already a disaster for a number of reasons. Chief among them are the unsettling cat-human hybrids at the center of the story, brought to life thanks to digital fur technology and motion-capture performances. Director Tom Hooper and the rest of his crew were working 36-hours straight up until 8am the morning before the world premiere, but it sounds like they didn’t quite finish everything they needed to. Despite already being released i...

Cats Is Terrible, But It’s Also Kind of Great

A movie can be transfixing without exactly being good. You might want to sneak back to see it twice, or six or seven times, yet you’re reluctant to recommend it to your friends. You remind yourself that bad taste is better than no taste. And for the eighth time, or perhaps the ninth, you return to Tom Hooper’s sometimes tacky, sometimes overworked, and yet often strangely beautiful Cats. Who needs a CGI movie version of the outrageously popular, long-running musical featuring songs by inces...
