Christmas in the Amana Colonies

A thick sheet of slush lines 220th Trail, the road that runs through the Amana Colonies. It’s Dec. 13th, 2017, close enough to Christmas that I’m excited, but not too excited, for the seven inches of snow now filling my boots.

Alfonso Cuarón’s masterpiece ‘Roma’ is now on Netflix — but it’s worth a trip to FilmScene

There’s a fine line between a movie that’s “artsy” and one that’s “artistic,” at least in my mind.

They may be unnecessarily abstract, employ an unsteady cam ~for realism~ and cannot end until at least one character has floated […]

Steve King demands Google hand over information about its employees’ political beliefs

Steve King, the best-known and longest-serving current U.S. Representative from Iowa, took center stage at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday, during which Google CEO Sundar Pichai faced repeated questions about whether the search engine is prejudiced against conservatives.

‘At Eternity’s Gate’ is a well-worn story worth the retelling

‘At Eternity’s Gate,’ now playing at FilmScene, offers little new to the lore and legacy of Van Gogh. Nonetheless, an homage to one of the very founders of modern art — as well as the idea of the modern artist — by one of its 21st century practitioners feels right, and Schnabel’s admiration for his subject informs every moment of this film.
