Anyone with half a brain knows that there's no such thing as a war movie … that there are only antiwar movies, of which director-writer Sam Mendes' "1917" is an iconic example. They also know that this harrowing, R-deserving delve into the bowels of humankind destroying each other with whatever new, technological device available to them, is a symptom of a species not yet civilized.   So of course, exiting the theater after receiving this booster shot of a reminder that thou shalt not kill, a cynically overwhelming shadow took center stage of my thoughts. Doubtless, all through this country, in hollows from hinterland to urban ghetto, and all through the

The seventh film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women," exquisitely chiseled to fully expected, classic standards by director-writer Greta Gerwig, jogged my memory. I specifically remember the exact day in Dr. Halberstadter's class at Olde Ivy Film Criticism College when the good professor warned us that upon occasion even the best of us would have our objectivity challenged.    Wearing the Mr. Chips-like tweed suit I was certain I'd one day emulate should I follow his path into academia, the doc wrote "In Cold Blood" on the blackboard and launched into his diatribe: "I hate this recently released movie based on Truman Capote's

'Uncut Gems': Frenetic: [fruh-net-ik] Filled With Excitement, Activity, or Confusion: Wild or Frantic

Adam Sandler's partially tour de force and indubitably frenetic portrayal of New York Diamond District jeweler/gambler Howard Ratner in "Uncut Gems" is a wildly disturbing adventure yarn, the purpose of which I'm still trying to figure out. Neither a comprehensive character study of its anxiety-ridden, addictive personality nor a scientific delve into the protagonist's torturing affliction, Howard's pillar-to-post rampage in quest of that ultimate score courtesy of a raw, Ethiopian opal will leave you shockingly exhausted.   Nonetheless, when I recently issued that quasi-deterring cautionary to an acquaintance, she seemed even more anxious than before to

LENOX, Mass. — Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum is offering a day trip to New York for an exclusive viewing of the exhibit titled "John Singer Sargent: Portraits in Charcoal" at the Morgan Library & Museum slated for Wednesday, Jan. 8.

This is a rare opportunity to view with an art specialist 53 charcoal portraits by John Singer Sargent (1856-1925), America's greatest portrait painter of his time. These drawn works of art represent a substantial, yet often overlooked, part of his practice – they number more than 750 in total - and demonstrate the same sense of immediacy, psychological insight and mastery of light and shade that animate

"Richard Jewell," director Clint Eastwood's skillfully told account of how a hero was turned into a scapegoat following the murderous bombing at the 1996 Olympics, stokes that greatest fear upon which our judicial system is based: that an innocent soul might be convicted of a crime.   It is everything in a true democracy to protect against arbitrary and random indictment, much to the vexation of today's unscrupulously authoritative voices in America who would sweep due process under the rug in the name of greedy motivations benefiting rich benefactors.   Eastwood, a national treasure by virtue of his probing forays into the American scene, once again makes a
