Paintings depict scenes of extraordinary New Yorkers doing ordinary things

Darwin Cosico Contributor

By Darwin Cosico in New Art on Tuesday 10 September 2013

New York is known for many things and one of them is a place where you’re most likely to see a celebrity doing ordinary things.

The Every Woody Allen Movie website

Stuart McBratney Contributor

By Stuart McBratney in Cool Websites on Thursday 16 May 2013

The writer-director of over 40 feature films, Woody Allen never re-watches his work once complete. But should he ever throw neurosis to the wind and dust off an old Blu-ray, Trevor Gilks can be his tour guide. He’s watched every movie Woody’s made, and written a detailed review of each.

Woody Allen’s Whatever Works

Xavier Toby Reader Find

By Xavier Toby in New Film on Monday 9 November 2009

Larry David plays a slight variation on his Curb Your Enthusiasm incarnation, spouting some of the most articulate rants on humanity in Woody Allen’s new comedy. I enjoyed last year’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona, but this is definitely better.
