No Big Bang

In 1965, Stephen Hawking wrote his first ground-breaking thesis and wed Jane Wilde. His paper argued that if a star can collapse inwards to form a singularity, then a singularity can explode back outward. The Theory of Everything explores this same theory, only instead of stars, it's marriage. Which isn’t to say new “stars” aren’t formed; Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones both provide sensational performances in The...

Recently, I joylessly trudged through the first season of Amazon’s “Transparent,” a show populated with so many soulless, vacuous, obnoxious characters that I began rooting for them to die horrifically.

Two Days, One Night

This harrowing, heartbreaking tale is a parable for how the poor live now.

A spectacularly crafted piece that transcends its boring genre.

A delirously fun satirical send up of artistic pretension. 

GRADE

"Out of this world" performances buoy a sub-par script.

Gleefully stupid, gloriously silly, this is a throwback to serialized sci-fi escapism.

Zero Motivation

This Israeli comedy about military service is a mixed bag.
