The AMC theater at Block E has started offering at least one Bollywood film per week. This seems to be a national trend for AMC, and I’m not sure precisely how well it plays in the Twin Cities.
Plan on more than one trip to absorb “Graphic Design: Now in Production” and the 11 films offered in “And Yet She Moves.”
There should probably be a list of bad influences on budding writers. The sorts of writing that people who are just learning their craft might do well to steer the hell clear of, because they exert undue influence, and it’s a bad so
Here it is, Halloween. And so, as MinnPost’s arts and culture writer, I have decided to take it upon myself to retell two lost tales from the murky byways of Minnesota history, the first of cannibalism, the second of madness, which
Cool events for a cool weekend: a costume extravaganza, a David Lynch film, a Japanese ghost story, plus horror film art.

I was planning on writing about “Real Steel” when it came out, but didn’t get around to it. Well, here it is, three weeks later, and it’s still playing, although I suspect it won’t be for long.

Fran Lebowitz will be in town tonight. According to the ever undependable Wikipedia, she’s a second cousin to actor Judd Hirsch, which was quite a surprise to me, as I am a second cousin to actor Judd Hirsch, so I suppose there is s
Last week, on Oct. 3, it was the 73rd birthday of rock and roller Eddie Cochran, best known for the song “Summertimes Blues.” Or, at least, it would have been had Cochran not died in 1960.
The Cat in the Hat is now 54, which is a long life for an anarchic feline. One supposes, upon reading Dr.
I am an adopted child. Ordinarily, this isn’t much of an issue, unless, of course, you hide it from your child until he is near adulthood and then spring it on him in a moment of anger.
