The festival, which runs March 5 through 8, typically features both filmmakers who work in front of the...

‘The Lodge’ starts off great but doesn’t amount to much

When the trailer for Veronika Franz & Severin Fiala’s “The Lodge” first dropped last year, my main takeaway was how spot on the casting of Riley Keough and Alicia Silverstone was. The two actresses could easily pass for relatives in a film – which is what I was hoping for in this feature.

While this turned out to...

Indigenous couture: Four Southwestern designers combine fashion and Native American heritage

Jolonzo Goldtooth graduated college straight into the Great Recession of 2007-2009, and his degree in behavioral psychology wasn’t getting him anywhere fast. So, like many a Millennial, he moved back to his family’s ranch, located about 30 minutes south of Farmington. As soon as his grandmother caught him lounging around,...

Just what grade does Adam Sandler’s ‘Uncut Gems’ earn?

The peculiar case of Adam Sandler continues to fascinate movie lovers into the new decade.

This is a man who hasn’t bothered to hide how much success he has found by doing the bare minimum since at least the early 2000s. Yet, like most comedians, he will branch out with serious projects once in a while. Whether for a...

February brings cover bands to Durango, The New Pornographers and Ani DiFranco to Santa Fe

It’s February – it’s cold, and it’s dark, and everyone is hungover from Snowdown. Might as well try and catch some shows around the region.

The Animas City Theatre is hopping this month, with acts such as The Lil Smokies and Tnertle ... in addition to both Back Sabbath and Led Zepplin covers. Meanwhile, down in Santa...

Albuquerque Museum hosting exhibition on Jim Henson, Muppets, and more

We can’t tell you how to get to Sesame Street. But if you take U.S. Highway 550 down to Interstate 25, get off at the exit for Interstate 40, head left on Rio Grande Boulevard, left on Mountain Road, and right on 19th Street, you can meet some of the cast. So to speak.

The Albuquerque Museum is hosting “The Jim Henson...

The Screen Actors Guild Awards: Short and sweet, though bizarrely boring in 2020

As the 2019/2020 Oscar season speeds along quicker than usual, this month’s Screen Actors Guild Awards remind us why they are still the smoothest-running televised awards show out there: no host and only a dozen categories within a two-hour runtime.

While I can appreciate that every person on a film’s production team is...

A new, slightly divisive take on the classic ‘Little Women’

It would be understandable if you groaned when it was announced over a year ago that we were getting a new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s “Little Women.” It is, after all, arguably one of the most read novels by a female writer in American literature and has a boatload of screen versions. Let’s count them. There are three...

Flashier than prestigious: Recapping the 2020 Golden Globe awards

I’m at the point where, as a film fanatic, if I miss an awards show, it’s not the end of the world.

I ate dinner with my family instead of watching the Golden Globes live. It was a really nice time and I didn’t feel out of the loop or like I had to look up the results when I got home.

Some have been wondering if...

Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to get out and see more shows in 2020? If so, you could do worse than catch some of the concerts coming to the region in January.

If you want to head down to Albuquerque, you’ll have the chance to catch Reverend Horton Heat and Black Flag on back-to-back nights at the same bar....
