In the 1980s, one of the most reliable ways to Oscars glory was the sweeping historical epic/biopic (Gandhi, Out of Africa, The Last Emperor). Director James Gray (The Immigrant, Two Lovers) tries to breathe new life into the genre with The Lost City of Z, the story of British explorer Percy Fawcett’s efforts to find a legendary lost city in the Amazon in the early 20th century. When the movie opens, Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) is...
Uber. To some, it’s the fresh air of technology making finding rides easier. To others, it’s a company responsible for making the oft-criticized cab industry seem like an afterthought.

For nearly a year, I had been roaming the streets of New Orleans and beyond in an attempt to provide myself the funds I need to...

After much ado, studies have finally determined that the egg came first. The announcement correlates with the Easter holiday. It’s a good year. Personally, spring gives me a visual of baby animals, a disgusting amount of Peeps, Jesus’ 40-day dance with the devil, green beer, that ballet by Stravinsky and James Franco with cornrows...

Inside, flower-clad girls could be seen in all corners of the floor, hula hooping and dancing with light-up toys. Shaggy, bearded men with tie-dye...
