‘Burning Cane’ Review: A Hypnotic Southern Fable That Burns Itself Into Your Memory [Tribeca]

Burning Cane is a movie that flows over you: It’s less a structured narrative than a series of arcane images, each more beguiling and haunting than the last. The film, which deservedly won the Founders Award for best narrative feature at the Tribeca Film Festival, is an incredible debut for a 19-year-old filmmaker just out of high school — Burning Cane feels like the product of decades lived, of tragedies untold.

Nike fallout shows we’re a nation of snowflakes

SACRAMENTO — Perhaps it’s the fault of social media or a president who acts like the star in a reality TV show, but Americans increasingly are fixated on the “big kerfuffle of the day.” We go from one tempest in a teapot to the next, with culture warriors expressing anger, shock and outrage. If you’re genuinely offended by an advertisement designed to sell athletic gear, then you need a reality check. Calm down. Take a deep breath. Stay off of Facebook for an hour. Hug your children.
