Gallery Review

Rock 'n' Paint

Abstractions in Stone and Oil at the Factory on 5th

Let's be honest. Art isn't the only factor to consider when evaluating the quality of a gallery. Atmosphere always plays a significant role. The truth is that most people enjoy a little romantic ambience to go with their art viewing, and why shouldn't they? Fine visual art deserves a fine visual space in which it can be viewed.

Book Review

The Rings of Hell

American Purgatorio

Good things never happen in stories that begin at gas stations on the New Jersey interstate, so when John Haskell's new novel American Purgatorio opens on the Palisades Parkway, you sort of know something is up. Sure enough, as soon as our hero Jack exits the filling station office, snacks in hand, he realizes that his car—and his wife, who was in it—are both gone. Most men would fly into a rage of confusion, but Jack simply sits down and decides to wait it out. "Something had happened," he says, confident of his powers to simply reason his way out of panic. "That much I could translate."

Bust a Move

Buster Keaton: Tempest in a Flat Hat

Buster Keaton's classic independent films from the '20s weren't merely ahead of their time. They were ahead of our time. Keaton created 10 classic feature-length films and 19 shorts filled with eye-popping effects and acrobatics that can't and won't ever be imitated with anything approaching his sense of visual and comedic style. These films are silent. They're black and white. Yet they somehow look like products of the 21st century.
