    Alex Cox Film Festival

      Once upon a time, the term “indie” cinema was not code for a prestige film with A-list actors released by the boutique division of a major studio. In olden days, there were genuinely independent, “mom-and-pop” distributors—and the major studios, if the filmmakers could trick them into making their film. The latter is what happened [...]

    David Bowie Is

      When you first heard that David Bowie was the subject of an international traveling exhibit showcasing his costumes, props, photographs, lyric sheets and such from his personal archive, you thought, “Of course he is.” And when you realized that the show wasn’t going to get any closer to the Capital Region than Toronto, you [...]

    Storyman

      Kevin May and Mick Lynch, former members of the Guggenheim Grotto, have been likened over the years to performers such as Simon and Garfunkel, Radiohead and Bon Iver.

Shorto’s latest book is Amsterdam, a sequel of sorts to The Island [...]
