Art Access' new director focuses on supporting great work by diverse artists
As the new executive director of Art Access Gallery, Shandra Benito has a vision for how the nonprofit organization—with its mission to serve diverse and often underserved communities with arts programs—should be perceived. And that vision involves quality, not sympathy.

Alienation Building

A Cure for Wellness brings operatic craziness sure to irritate audiences.
There's a temptation, for those who write about movies for a living, to anticipate the commercial prospects of movies before they are released. This is usually a fool's errand; anyone who believes they know exactly what will be a hit and what will be a flop should be in a far more lucrative career than film criticism.

Baby, One Meh Time

Doing the Robot

HBO's Westworld digs into real-world consequences of virtual behavior.
Seeing the end of Game of Thrones on the horizon, HBO greenlit a number of other television series that it hoped to fill that void, and one of them was Westworld. I'm not sure anyone looked back at Michael Crichton's 1973 movie and thought it was particularly relevant to today's culture, but the show-runners have decided to prove us all wrong.
