WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

‘Obvious Child’ is Not Just an Abortion Rom-Com

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 25, 2014
I love Donna Stern (Jenny Slate), the protagonist of Obvious Child, the new indie dramedy from co-writer and director Gillian Robespierre (working from her 2009 short of the same name), because Donna is wickedly smart and engaging, a cute Jewish woman we rarely get to see in mainstream romantic comedies.  

‘The Rover’ Captures the Utter Collapse of Humanity

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Based on his work as a filmmaker, David Michôd, Australian partner of the brothers Edgerton (Joel and Nash), channels into the darkest corners of his heart to investigate the primal, animalistic urges that take mankind far away from the civilized façade we’ve constructed for ourselves.  

'Louie' Is Back in the New York Groove

After nearly two years off the air, Louie C.K. is back on the small screen, presenting another season of brilliant dark humor with Louie (Season Premiere, 10 p.m. Monday, FX).  

The Shins' Port of Morrow

Strangely, but perhaps predictably, James Mercer’s recent career moves seem indicative of diva behavior — signing with Columbia, dismissing his longtime bandmates and making The Shins something of a solo venture while exploring outside projects like Broken Bells.   

ForkHeartKnife (Review)

Offering simple delectables and street-theater seating

If there were ever a perfect vantage point to watch the kind of moments that make city life so fascinating, it's at ForkHeartKnife, the tiny kitchen at Main and Liberty that's owned and operated by some of the friendliest and most creative women in Over-the-Rhine. After two visits to ForkHeartKnife, I'm a big fan. It's just such a personal experience, like dining with friends.  

Gravy (Review)

New Goshen establishment is a nice breakfast destination

Ah, gravy. When I think of gravy, I'm reminded of the smell of my grandma's house from my childhood. Not that she cooked much. It was actually the musty smell of the old house saturated with years of cigarette smoke. But it always reminded me of gravy.  

Longworth's Tavern (Review)

Mount Adams establishment's reopened kitchen serves up more than just a tasty burger

1 Comment · Wednesday, January 21, 2009
There it was, high atop Mount Adams on St. Gregory Street: Longworth's Tavern, the long-standing neighborhood bar and grill touting two floors, a patio and a recently reopened kitchen. Hoorah! We braved the brisk temperature and the steep hill to indulge in an evening of excessive food and drink.   

Vito's Café (Review)

Chef Romy finds new home in Fort Thomas

1 Comment · Wednesday, December 17, 2008
I gave Vito's a rave review in 2007, and it has only improved with the addition of Chef Romuald Jung, late of the Palace Restaurant at the Cincinnatian Hotel. Chef Romy's talent and love of food and family outgrew the corporate confines of hotel dining. He's found a welcome home with Victor and Mary Ciepiel in Fort Thomas, and his influence has made already excellent food grand.  

Illusion and Reality (Review)

Cincinnati Art Museum shows off the work of Jiri Anderle

0 Comments · Wednesday, October 15, 2008
Turning adversity into a virtue is something artists are good at. The adversity of being an artist in a Communist society that forbad direct social criticism steered Anderle into a body of work well suited for comment on the human condition. So prints became Anderle's dominant form of expression through much of his career.  

The Binarians (Review)

Andrew Au delves into pluses and minuses at Clay Street Press

0 Comments · Wednesday, December 10, 2008
Andrew Au is a fellow of infinite jest who takes infinite pains to commit his jests to paper. For his text accompanying this show, he's adopted an antique style, reflective of biblical pronouncements but also handy in sending up scientific jargon. He has so much fun with it that senses reel.
