Gatos y Galletas isn’t your average Albuquerque cafe.
Finding Dory

Film Review

Finding Dory

Simple but satisfying sequel follows its own motto and just keeps swimming

Restaurant Review

Panza Llena, Corazón Contento

Revisiting Los Cuates for the gazillionth time

The food is still consistent in flavor and presentation; delicious and detailed—with history and hot chile.
Dheepan, a former Tamil soldier, abandons his past and assumes a new identity as a refugee, a caretaker, a husband and a father.

Film Review

Dheepan

French film unpacks the pain of immigrant life

With a mastery of style that is firmly rooted in the telling detail, Jacques Audiard creates a film with rare conscience that unfolds one story of immigration to illuminate us all.

Shrimp with noodles and veggies
Monica Schmitt

Restaurant Review

Steamy, Wonton Romance

May Café serves a tantalizing Thai tea

Never judge a book by its cover, and never judge a restaurant by its exterior. To miss out on good food because of poor judgment is a sin, so when you see a massive armless lumberjack looming above the plain outer surface of May Café, don’t be alarmed.
Maggie’s Plan

Film Review

Maggie’s Plan

Control, narcissism and love mix with oddball results

Funny one-liners and strange antics keep the story moving along even if hazy clouds of anthropology jargon glaze the eyes every once in a while.
V.25 No.22 | 6/2/2016

Restaurant Review

The Artist Formerly Known As...

Middle Eastern Food & Kabobs doesn’t need a flashy name

All in all, I have to say this was the best dining experience I've had in this city to date.
The Lobster

Film Review

The Lobster

Absurdist romance makes monkeys out of us all

Is The Lobster a comedy or a tragedy? A sci-fi film or a mind-bending fantasy? A romance or ... whatever the exact opposite of that is?

The famed Cervantes fireplace
Eric Williams Photography

Restaurant Review

Cervantes, Swords and Tequila

There might be enchiladas

Due to its out-of-the-way location, one-of-a-kind atmosphere and choice menu, Cervantes is indeed a hidden pearl in the oyster of Albuquerque.
“... And yet, I can’t help but feel our hats could be larger.”

Film Review

Love & Friendship

Jane Austen anti-romance adds the wit of a modern sophisticate

Whit Stillman, meet Jane Austen. Jane Austen, meet Whit Stillman. Yeah, it’s kind of astonishing that it’s taken so long for these two creative minds to cross paths.
Zero K

Book Review

DeLillo’s Try for Immortality

Zero K extends career-long queries

Despite the unnecessary opaqueness of Zero K, it is a testament to DeLillo’s literary intellect and one-of-a-kind style.

Classic Barley Room burger with french fries
Monica Schmitt

Restaurant Review

Bar Food for ‘Mericans

Barley Room has a cure for the hangry

The mediocre American food was not terrible but it was much more satisfying when I was exhausted and deliriously hungry.
High-Rise

Film Review

High-Rise

Apartment living falls apart in energetic adaptation of cult classic
