‘Endeavour’ is ‘Morse’ code for ‘near-perfect prequel.’


Rod Lott
Despite Inspector Morse enjoying a dozen-season run on TV, I’ve never seen an episode of the mystery series spawned from Colin Dexter’s novels. In no way did this detract from my enjoyment of Endeavour, a feature-length prequel, and is indeed enjoyable.

Tim's Vermeer

In the fascinating Tim’s Vermeer, a man seeks to replicate a Vermeer masterpiece through mirrors and lenses.


Phil Bacharach
The question of what makes art has fueled debate ever since prehistoric man began etching on the walls of caves, or at least ever since college students began frequenting coffeehouses. Tim’s Vermeer, a documentary by the magician duo Penn & Teller, doesn’t exactly shed light on the definition of art, but it does contribute to the conversation by examining that arcane place where art and technology intersect.
