ONCE UPON A TIME... IN HOLLYWOOD is easily THE film of the summer, the year thus far, and maybe the decade. It's a climactic showstopper of an achievement, Quentin Tarantino's avowed penultimate 9th movie, a full-to-bursting valentine to movie-making and movie stars, his native Los Angeles, and an industry mirroring the turbulence of a culture [...]

I have seen DEAR EVAN HANSEN and remain overwhelmed by the lyrical beauty of its score (Benj Pasek & Justin Paul), the power of these performances, and the emotional intelligence of its book (Steven Levenson). This Tony Award-winning musical juggernaut has as ardent a following as "Hamilton" and with good reason. I saw it for [...]
