Plenty of Voters Care About Democracy. It’s Still Probably Not Enough.

Democrats and defenders of small-d democracy across the country continue to rejoice as nearly every election denier on the ballot to oversee 2024 elections in swing states has been declared a loser. Stories trumpeting American voters’ wisdom in rejecting Trump-backed conspiracists in secretary of state races dominate the national conversation, relegating even Kari Lake’s “will

What Monica Roberts Gave the Trans Community

Monica Roberts began tracking violence against the trans community in 2006, long before national organizations, governmental agencies, and, perhaps most important, the media, were paying close attention. Her award-winning blog, TransGriot, aggregated local news, police reports, and community-sourced information. Her no-frills style of reporting and her reputation as a trusted journalist and blogger in the

Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s Bardo Is Alternately Dazzling and Aggravating

All the world claims to love a grand, ambitious filmmaker—but not really. There’s something in us that makes us more likely to root for the underdog director, the one who makes an intimate film that quietly wows us, than for the one who announces his filmmaking genius with the subtlety of a flare gun. Enter

How Spirited Continues a Long Legacy of Christmas Carol Adaptations

Clint Briggs (Ryan Reynolds) is a media consultant who sells the public whatever image his client wants, unbothered by the pesky truth. He’s also being haunted by a series of ghosts—and he’s not having it. Mid-haunting, he interrupts the floating corpse of Jacob Marley (Patrick Page). “I’m so sorry,” Briggs interjects. “I’m stuck on the

A Donkey’s Inner Life Reveals Itself in Jerzy Skolimowsky’s Tender, Glorious EO

Like a mistreated starlet, nature often gets a bum deal in the movies. When the light is good, you can always just turn the camera on it and make a pretty picture. But it takes a great deal of care—your eyes need to learn to listen, perhaps, to all that’s in front of them—to capture

The Inspection‘s Jeremy Pope on His Path from Stage to Screen—and Back to Broadway

Climate Protesters Are Throwing Soup at Art. A Brooklyn Psychologist Is Behind It

The plan was to do something illegal, but no one among the two-dozen climate protesters assembled in a courtyard in Midtown Manhattan would tell me exactly what. Extinction Rebellion organizers were coming through the small crowd, asking who was “red role,” meaning that they were willing to be arrested. Someone else handed out cookies. Protesters

How Luna Came Full Circle From K-pop Idol to Playing One on Broadway

You almost can’t recognize Luna when she appears in an early scene of KPOP on Broadway. The Korean singer has swapped out the luscious blonde locks from a prior musical number for brown hair styled with thick, straight-across bangs, and replaced the exquisite costume she wore just minutes before with a plain dress and old-fashioned

Trump’s Presidential Run Shouldn’t Deter Merrick Garland

The confetti had barely been swept away from the midterm election celebrations when Donald Trump announced that he would be running for president again in 2024. His candidacy raises a natural question—what happens now to the federal investigations into his conduct? The Department of Justice is investigating Trump’s role in the Jan. 6, 2021 attack
