    Recap: 'Parade's End' Brings Dense Miniseries To A Quiet Close In Finale

    As my colleagues have written in their recaps of the first four episodes of "Parade's End," there is much to admire in the five-part miniseries. From the dense, multi-threaded and layered script from Tom Stoppard, to the sumptuous direction from Susanna White and a cluster of great performances from...

    Recap: 'Parade's End' Goes To War With One Outstanding Episode, And One Middling One

    When we left off with part two of "Parade's End," war had arrived, with Christopher Tietjens (Benedict Cumberbatch) in the trenches, and his wife Sylvia (Rebecca Hall) seemingly finding religion. Part three of the show stayed mostly away from the front, picking up with Christopher waking in a milita...

    Recap: Benedict Cumberbatch & Rebecca Hall Shine In First 2 Parts Of Period Miniseries 'Parade's End'

    The specter of "Downton Abbey" has been present in the run up to the broadcast of BBC and HBO's new period drama "Parade's End." Both are lavish period tales set before, during and after World War I. But in fact, the comparisons are a little overblown. 'Downton' and "Parade's End" (an adaptation of ...

    The 2013 Oscars: Torn Between Self-Seriousness and Wanting to See Boobs

    The Academy Awards are not, as we were reminded several times during last night's telecast, a reflection of the films that are most successful by the measure of the box office. None of the best picture nominees were among the top ten money-making titles of the year, though a few were in the top 20. ...

    Recap: 'Girls' Goes To The Country With Jessa & Hannah

    After the solo Hannah episode two weeks back and last Sunday's focus on Ray and Adam, once again "Girls" is allowing its focus to flesh out a particular character, with Jessa (Jemima Kirke) getting the spotlight.

    Recap: Staten Island Is Really Getting Ray & Adam Down In 'Girls'

    If last week's episode of "Girls" is still being talked about as an outstanding outlier in the series thus far, an almost self-contained, Euro-flavored short film, this week the show returns to more familiar territor but still retains a melancholic air. Once again pitching focus, as the title sugge...

    'Girls' Recap 6: The 'Boys' Aren't in Kansas Anymore, Toto

    One of the things I’ve admired about this season of “Girls” is that it has no obligation to regularly check in with each of the four “leads” of the show. Instead, certain characters are more central in certain episodes, in an organic way, while supporting characters are given a surprising amount of ...

    For Beyoncé, directed by Beyoncé, the documentary "Life Is But a Dream," which makes its premiere tonight, February 16th at 9pm on HBO, is the film equivalent of a selfie. A selfie, as you're surely aware, is a photo you take of yourself. Gone are the dark days of wa...
