    Events in Gaza bring new urgency to 'The Honorable Woman'
    I can't remember the last time real-life events recontextualized a work of fiction for me the way Israel's incursion into Gaza has done with "The Honorable Woman" this month. When I first started watching the BBC-made mini-series that starts at 10 p.m....

    No joke: Batman's latest plods toward predictability
    (C) The Dark Knight is a handsome, accomplished piece of work, but it drove me from absorption to excruciation within 20 minutes, and then it went on for two hours more. It's the standard-bearer for the school of comic-book movies that confuses...
  • After summer of flops, a season of quality?
