Movie Review

Dancing with Androids

In a new HBO Max sci-fi series, the eyes contain layers of complexity, which is why light is not proof of enlightenment.

Get Ailes!

“The Man in the Arena” tells the story of a man in full. Roger Ailes was energetic, ambitious, unorthodox, creative, brilliant, charming, disarming, and a bunch of other things that made all kinds of different people yell, at critical moments, “Get Ailes!”

Freedom of Speech No More?

“No Safe Spaces” succeeds at its primary goal: revealing the fundamentally evil designs of our enemies. There are, however, serious flaws in this otherwise polished production.

The Marvel Harriet Tubman

By choosing to give its marvelous heroine the comic-book treatment, “Harriet” can’t decide if it wants to be a serious biography or the female “Black Panther.”

Pagan Son

On its face, Bunker Spreckels’ story is that of a young man who seems to have been born to die, of a boy who flew too close to the sun with wings of feathers and wax, of greatness stunted by greatness as it only could be.

Cold War Kicks

Anyone who is still celebrating the liberal-capitalist "defeat" of communism needs to reckon with the field of Democratic presidential candidates; subject themselves to scold Greta Thunberg as she calls for Stalinist central planning to “fight” climate change; and must explain why virtually every mainstream media and academic institution is lurching us toward totalitarian darkness.
