    'First Love' is austere but wins you over
    A young man in a hoodie and sneakers steps into a square of light and speaks: "I associate, rightly or wrongly, my marriage with the death of my father. . . . That other links exist, on other planes, between these two affairs, is not impossible." No,...
  • What 'The Daily Show' cut out

    If you're like me, you probably watch Comedy Central's "The Daily Show." If you're like me, you probably also turn to reruns of "Scrubs" or "Seinfeld" when the newsmaker interview comes on. If that's the case, you probably missed me and Jon Stewart...

    The Cost of Cursing in Public

  • 'Hot Tub Time Machine'

    'Hot Tub Time Machine'
    A chlorinated, R-rated "Back to the Future," "Hot Tub Time Machine" accomplishes what "Snakes on a Plane" did not: It offers a merrily idiotic movie to go with its willfully idiotic title. You know what else it has, besides a Spandex slipstream of...

    Dance review: Yow Dance deserves wider Central Florida audience
    Modern dance in Central Florida is still a little voice singing in the wind, hoping someone comes close enough to hear. Eric Yow's voice is fresh and clear, and if Friday's opening of his Yow Dance was sparsely attended, it is because not enough dance...

  • Cheerio in Los Feliz

    The iPad on Lisa Borgnes Giramonti's kitchen counter is propped up by an intricately carved wooden bookstand near an Old World-flavored Aga stove. Call it a study in contrasts. Better yet, consider the scene to be the embodiment of the artist's primary obsession: weaving British gentility and the elegance of a bygone era into our tech-obsessed present.

    Book review: 'Into the Silence: The Great War, Mallory, and the Conquest of Everest' by Wade Davis
    On June 6, 1924, two men set out from a camp set at 23,000 feet on Mt. Everest. They were George Mallory, who, at 37, was already one of the world's most accomplished climbers, and Andrew "Sandy" Irvine, a 22-year-old Oxford graduate with little...

    'A Strange Eventful History: The Dramatic Lives of Ellen Terry, Henry Irving, and Their Remarkable Families' by Michael Holroyd
    When Michael Holroyd takes on a subject, you know his sweep will be wide. This is not to say that he forfeits depth -- far from it -- but rather that he puts things in the fullest possible context. His groundbreaking biography of Lytton Strachey more than...
