The Perks of Being a Wallflower

High school was tough.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
John Hughes, for all the love people heap on his ’80s teen movies, was far too easy on high school. Maybe your high school experience was different than mine — and, if so, congrats. For many of us, however, those years were a marathon of self-pity, heartache, passion and anything else you’d find on an album by The Smiths.

The Master

‘Master’ful filmmaking, yet impenetrable for some.


Drama

Rod Lott
Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master is my least favorite of the director’s half-dozen films. That said, he has yet to make a bad one.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead gives an intoxicating performance.


Drama

Rod Lott
In a short career largely dominated with genre films — from Final Destination 3 to this past summer’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter — Mary Elizabeth Winstead always has exuded a certain something. But nothing that ever suggested the level of performance she delivers in Smashed.

Hopper: A Journey into the American Dream — Tom Folsom


Nonfiction

Rod Lott
When Tom Folsom terms his new nonfiction work, Hopper, as “a rebel biography,” he’s not kidding. Not only is his subject a rebel, but so is his approach. A you-are-there POV, fonts that interrupt the narrative — you’ve never read a celebrity bio quite like it, and that’s certainly befitting of its star.

Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
The “hair of the dog that bit me” is often mumbled the next morning, after a night of excessive drinking. This age-old request for alcohol’s curative properties for a hangover is sometimes known to lessen the effects of the night before.

Beer and wine

Welcome spring with wines and beers fit for the season.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
“Drink pink” is the rallying cry of spring for many wine lovers. The big reds of the fall and winter are retired in favor of lighterbodied wines for warmer weather, and the more patio-friendly the better. While white wines, especially sweeter ones, dominate the spring and summer, many wine lovers still prefer dry, red wines.
