Writer-director Taylor Sheridan's "Wind River," a murder-mystery inspired by true events, deserves plaudits not only because it is a skilled piece of filmmaking, but also owing to its eye-opening exposé of the disgraceful socioeconomic conditions on Native American reservations.   While the majority of Americans are more or less cognizant of the poverty that wreaks havoc in our urban ghettos, far fewer citizens are familiar with this rural brand of destitution ostensibly swept under the carpet of our national conscience. See it up close and the mind boggles.   Be warned, this is tough viewing. In service to its ugly divulgences, there are few punches pulled.

True pizza lovers like to change up our beloved pie into all kinds of different combinations. We have been unable to live life by pepperoni alone, even though we a lot of us are die-hard pepperoni fans. More than anything, I think we are guilty of just loving all the cheesy combinations a good pizza can provide.

The best thing about pizza, aside from automatically putting us in a better mood, is that there are endless ways to enjoy it. There is a saying that goes We totally agree!

If you're looking to try a new slice of pie, here are five unique pizzas made in the Berkshires that you'll totally want to order this weekend.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Technology from the 21st century has brought a piece of artwork from the first century back to life.

Using a CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machine, Williamstown artist Lindsay Neathawk recently completed a replica of the "Spoils" panel of the Arch of Titus. The arch is located in Rome and was constructed around the year 82 by the Emperor Domitian shortly after the death of his older brother Titus, to commemorate Titus' victories, including the Siege of Jerusalem in the year 70.

The "Spoils" panel is on the south side of the arch and depicts Roman soldiers carrying items taken from the Jerusalem Temple, including the temple menorah,

Call me a hopeless romantic. It's my excuse for liking and recommending to kindred spirits director Marc Webb's decidedly imperfect, melodramatic and oft soap-operatic "The Only Living Boy in New York."    My justification is in service to the rather dire straits in which our nation currently finds itself. Quite plainly, to coin a phrase, what this world needs now is love, sweet love. And while this coming-of-age tale doesn't completely fill said need, it does supply that second-best commodity: sappiness.    It's sophisticated sappiness, but sappiness all the same.   In cosmopolitan Manhattan, Thomas Webb, the twenty-something son of elite,

Before the Ninth, and the "Popular Artists Series," there are three exceptional programs you should consider

Violinist/author Gerald Elias, associate concertmaster with the Utah Symphony and Boston Symphony violinist "in residence" at Tanglewood as a BSO violinist, is also a novelist. A graduate of Yale University, adjunct professor of music at the University of Utah, first violinist of the Abramyan String Quartet, and music director of the "Vivaldi By Candlelight" concert series, Elias is a busy man.

For all this, he finds the time and passion to dedicate himself to a completely different art form – and to, over the years, excel equally at that "secondary" activity.

Elias is a master storyteller/novelist, who has published six thrillers – all combining

While director Joshua Z. Weinstein's "Menashe" is on first blush a touching look into a child custody battle being waged by Menashe, a Hasidic grocery clerk in Borough Park, Brooklyn, further reflection reveals a much larger, equal opportunity meditation about the human condition.   Therefore, just as with the much underrated documentary, "Deli Man" (2014), the slogan "You don't have to be Jewish to love Levy's real Jewish rye bread" also applies to this Yiddish-spoken film with English subtitles. The sociologically curious of every stripe can find value here.   Still, like the response from the grandma who is asked if chicken soup, oft

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — "I'll Drink to That" is a veritable wonderland of handcrafted vessels: delicate celadons, chunky tankards, prim porcelains, bowls with heft and inventive shapes.   The group exhibition at the Eclipse Mill curated by potters Gail and Phil Sellers and Arthur De Bow, gallery manager at MCLA Gallery 51, features more than two dozen artists who sculpt functional art out of clay.     "I think it's really cool when you have an exhibit of something that's as simple as a cup and then you get to see so many interpretations of what a drinking vessel is,  is just amazing," said Stephanie Boyd of Williamstown, who
