    Hard 'Luck': Why HBO's Horseracing Drama is Still Worth Seeking Out

    Watching the outstanding season (and series) finale of "Luck," which went out quietly on Sunday night while the country turned its attention to "Mad Men," it was hard not wonder if the show would have found more of a following if the rest of it had been like its ending.

    LUCK RECAP: A Herd of Two

    Episode seven of "Luck" at first feels like a placeholder, until you look back over it and realize that the universe is reordering itself beneath the surface of things. In the pilot, most of the characters seemed detached from life, or isolated; but now, with just two episodes left to go until the e...

    MATT ZOLLER SEITZ RECAP: LUCK: If Wishes Were Horses ...

    Before we delve into HBO's "Luck," I need to get some housekeeping out of the way. I wrote about it in a very general way for New York magazine, then asked to recap the first season for Vulture.

    Review: HBO, David Milch and Michael Mann's 'Luck' Pilot Promises More than It Delivers

    Dustin Hoffman's Directorial Debut 'Quartet' Finally Gets Underway

    Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins & Michael Gambon Join Maggie Smith & Tom Courtenay In CastIt's somewhat surprising, given that most actors give it a shot at one point or another in their career, even if they never go back to it, that Dustin Hoffman has never stepped behind the camera to direct a fil...
