Perhaps the genuine thrill of Stranger Things is that the viewer has no real idea of what is actually going on. Like, really – what the hell is with that portal already? It’s that same condition that very much makes the new film Luz by first time director Tilman Singer so riveting…and unsettling
I started reading photo blogs in 2008. The curator Charlotte Cotton told me about a website she’d created at LACMA, called Words without Pictures . She’d invited photo-world-types to participate, and as I perused their bios, I learned about some of the people who were blogging already.

Under The Moonlight explores the growth of Yi women living in the Daliang Mountains of China’s Sichuan province and the daily activities that govern their lives.

“P eople love cars,” says Alison Mosshart. “They think that they’re beautiful, or that they symbolize adventure.
If you had to be dropped somewhere in the middle of Tuscany, you could surely do worse than to find yourself in Casole D’Elsa . Just 60km from Firenze, 30km from Siena, and dancing along the edge of the ethereal Chianti wine region, it dates all the way back to the 10th Century.
Freddie Gibbs and Madlib, shot by Nick Walker. After a 5-year hiatus, “MadGibbs” is back in the spotlight.

Catherine Cohen is the first to arrive at Cafe Mogador. Draped in an orange blouse and silky pink skirt, she greets me with her signature “ What’s happening?
These New Puritans: Six “There’s a strength in this film’s stillness,” says musician George Barnett, who forms one half of the critically-acclaimed experimental band These New Puritans. “It’s not competing with the attention-deficit-disorder culture of today, it’s going in a totally different direction. This is very much an anti-music video.” “Fire always turns up in our songs somehow. Maybe it’s to do with moments that are seductive and powerful but can also consume you and destroy you,” Barnett continues

Some actors fall victim to pigeonholing, but Nicole Kidman is not one of them
Dr. Reisman, delivering some closed-mouth therapeutic acumen. Like thousands of viewers, I was enchanted by Big Little Lies and the tales of the Monterey Five when it debuted on HBO in early 2017. Like millions of other viewers, I was delighted when it was announced the show would be returning for a second season, casting off its limited series status for that of a full-fledged drama.
Confirming a fairly reliable but welcome cycle, tiki drinks are one of this season’s hottest imbibing trends; and no surprise, as temps continue to soar, the crushed ice and rum begins to flow. But leave it to the impressively creative team behind Sunday in Brooklyn to combine their love of both tiki and yakitori to conceive Yaki Tiki, which will surely be an insanely popular pop-up at the A/D/O building in Greenpoint, Brooklyn every weekend this summer. Here, their award winning cocktail magic highlights whimsical takes on classics – to wit, using shochu, a classic Japanese liquor, as well as traditional rum.

A White Butterfly on a Bus For ten days, in a city in the far west of China, a young Chinese actor and a Belgian filmmaker embark on a relationship that blurs the line between fictional performance and documented reality. The protagonists, Jin Jing and Matthias Delvaux, go on a hunt for intimacy—first as strangers, then as more sensual friends—in a city that is unfamiliar to them both. Hangzhou-based director Xinyuan Zheng Lu presents A White Butterfly on a Bus like a fragmented memory.
Part 1. Re-visiting Tarantino Chronological order can be boring. Ever since “Reservoir Dogs,” which blew my mind as a youth, it’s been clear that non-linear narrative is the coolest
