It's an unsurprisingly ambitious movie from the notoriously, proudly headstrong...
The beat producer Jason Chung has had a rough few days, and you could see it on his face. The dark, menacing El Rey Theater set he delivered was meant to be the victorious homecoming after a cross-country tour to tease his forthcoming album, "Fated."

To the editor: Tamar Sternthal from the pro-Israel media watchdog CAMERA says that Israel is not responsible for the suffering of the Palestinians at the Yarmouk refugee camp in Syria or for any Palestinian suffering. ("Don't blame Israel for Palestinian misery at Yarmouk," Readers React, April...
Knowing the outcome behind the true-life tragedy "24 Days" doesn't diffuse the horror, the tension or the sadness of watching one family's drama unfold day after agonizing day when a son is kidnapped and hope dies.
You know that supervolcano in Yellowstone National Park? The one that, three times in the last 2 million years, spewed enormous amounts of ash over the North American continent? Scientists have discovered an enormous underground reservoir deep beneath the surface and have mapped it out for the...
"Giant" photo: In the April 12 Calendar section, the credit for a 1955 photograph of actor James Dean with local children in Marfa, Texas, that accompanied a Classic Hollywood column about the making of the film "Giant" was credited only to PBS.
