 Molly Ivins once said, “The best way to get the sons of bitches is to make people laugh at them.” Audiences who see “Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins” … more
All humans are creators. It's not something we just do on Saturdays, or when we graduate from art school or retire from the 9-to-5 grind. Every human being, indeed, all life itself, is one big bang of nonstop, emerging, engaging, intensifying and expressive creativity. more
The idea of young people, teens and younger in some cases, conscripted by a military into service is abhorrent to most people in so-called civilized countries. But, they’re out … more
It had to happen. Both movie theaters in Taos have closed for the time being in response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The Taos Center for the Arts has closed both its Stables Gallery and … more
EDITOR’S NOTE: As of Friday evening (March 13) Mitchell Storyteller 7 Theatres in Taos was maintaining its regularly scheduled movie times for the week but is closely monitoring the coronavirus situation. Be sure to check the website daily for updates.  more
A cynic might say a showing of Alan J. Pakula’s acclaimed 1976 political thriller “All the President’s Men” is an obvious liberal ploy to whack us over the head during an … more
According to Bonnie Golden, one of four local women who founded Taos Immigration Allies, "immigration involves basic human rights, everyone but Native Americans are immigrants, and everyone has a right to asylum. Everyone. We shouldn't forget where we came from, our education, social status and wealth don't matter." more
There are some easy assumptions that can be made about South Korean writer-director Bong Joon Ho’s 2020 Academy Awards Best Picture winner, not the least of which is whether it deserves such an accolade given the hints of predictability laid out in opening scenes. But, as one watches this film the realization we are in the presence of a highly skilled, deliberate and truly insightful talent becomes readily apparent. more
Jack London wrote his novel, “Call of the Wild,” after observing firsthand what it was like for late 19th century gold miners in the thoroughly unforgiving wilderness of the far Yukon … more
Taos Pueblo filmmakers interested in developing their media-arts projects are eligible to receive funding through the newly established Senator John Pinto Memorial Filmmakers Fund. Individual Native filmmakers can use funds toward any aspect of production. This can include, film, TV, video games or audio visual projects. more
  Hopefully, you didn’t see “Downhill” as a date movie for Valentines Day because if you did it might have let the air out of whatever romantic ideas you might have had … more
  It’s probably a sure bet that “Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn” won’t make anyone’s best movies list alongside “Citizen Kane.” But then, you’d have to be one serious lunatic to put those movies together in the first place. more
The all-too-familiar formula that is easy to glean from most films that set out as an action spy thriller with a tinge of seriousness — think Daniel Craig’s 007, “Mission Impossible” or “Jason Bourne” — isn’t so much apparent in this movie from director Reed Morano, working from a screenplay by Mark Burnell based on his own novel.  more
The old school tag line "ripped from today's headlines" could very well have been plastered all over the promo posters for Clint Eastwood's new film "Richard Jewell," but the promise veiled in that proclamation fails when you discover the film's real intent. more
I was never a big fan of Rex Harrison’s British musical version, and Eddie Murphy’s contemporary American take on “Dr. Doolittle” was funny and cute in its own way, but at least both stars maintained a certain presence on screen. more
The light in Taos is exceptional and something for which it is noted, but its glow sometimes emanates from something other than the sun. There are people who bring their own shining intensity to this small town and make it a brighter place for family, friends and the wider community. Such a person was the actor Robert Walker Jr., who died in Malibu, California, on Dec. 5, 2019. more
War itself has always been brutal, but the Industrial Revolution helped create a horrifying meat grinder during this "war to end all wars." The machines created to destroy human bodies during the first World War (1914-1918) were made even more effective because medics had no way to cope with the volume much less the severity of destruction. But, still, men, and boys, marched off to fight, starched with visions of glory. more
What would you think if the Son of God reappeared in our midst? Today? In the Middle East? Would we even recognize Him, understand His message, or would we dismiss Him as just another cult leader or charlatan? more
You have to give a lot of credit to director Greta Gerwig. Not only did she helm one of the best cinema adaptations (among many) of Louisa May Alcott’s 19th century semi-autobiographical novel, she was also pregnant while shooting it and went into labor the day after she turned in her first rough cut of the movie. more
Just what is the "Star Wars" universe trying to teach us? Is it that Wookiees are incredibly loyal, fierce and loveable friends? Or, that brave freedom fighters will always give their lives for a just cause? Or, that evil will never die and that a gigantic armada of Imperial Star Destroyers can be built in secret by a cranky old relative? more
The idea behind "Jumanji" was always a brilliant conceit: A game that literally drags players into it, posing various life-threatening and crazy challenges until they are forced to hit certain goals and the final moves are achieved. more
Clearly, director Kasi Lemmons had a monumental weight thrust upon her shoulders to depict the life and times of American hero Harriet Tubman (1822-1913). In every scene, one feels the director's intense desire to "get it right" because the world would certainly judge every frame and utterance for their authenticity and faithfulness to this important, yet largely unknown, historical figure. more
This one might seem like a low budget production as it opens, but there are no credits so you don’t know who’s in it at first or even what it’s called. This is a clever way of ... more
Lightning rarely strikes twice in animated movies, and now with the “Disney Princess Movie” imprint to uphold, the motive to electrify audiences for the new “Frozen II” movie is even more imperative ... more
The new car racing film "Ford v Ferrari" by James Mangold is a well-designed bit of semi-macho fluff based upon a real life rivalry ... more
