Fearing that I might be scarred for life after seeing Darren Aronofsky's "Mother!" I am happy to relate that slowly but surely the grotesque concepts and visions of this postmodern horror film are dissipating from my fragile and offended psyche. I mean, I am safe, aren't I? Hopefully it's not part of a grander trick.    This is sinister stuff, intentionally as well as through the error of its haughty self-indulgence. Oh, dear reader be cautious. It starts out with intriguing eeriness ... even a bit Hitchcockian. No offense, Master. But that's just to suck you into its ugly movie Hell.   For sure there will be a cult following by virtue of its violent

Filmmaker Paul Shoulberg's "The Good Catholic" is a convenient, pocket-sized edition of ruminations just right for the soul in search of a quick philosophical challenge. While there's nothing new about this tale of temptation and the emotional tumult it sets in motion, the general quality of the human beings it brings to the fore proves most arresting.    There is a cathartic honesty in the story's perplexity ... an interesting look at faith as an improver of self and society.   Meet Zachary Spicer's Daniel, the nice young man who became a priest just in time to give his dying father last rites. Now serving in a small parish in Bloomington, Ind., his

'Tulip Fever': When Speculation Was in Bloom

A fascinating backdrop for an intricate if not convoluted, seriocomic love story that could have very well been written by Nöel Coward gives director Justin Chadwick's "Tulip Fever" an arthouse cachet. But while patience is a virtue, the esoteric appeal of this costumed affair set in 17th-century Holland may require more virtue than the general moviegoer wishes to expend. All the same, for those unfamiliar with the financial frenzy that speculation in tulip bulbs created during the era in question, its intrigue deserves a study even if you pass on seeing the film.   Viewed in a greater, historical perspective, not unlike the frantic rush by everyday Americans to play

'Wind River': Opens the Floodgates of Indignation

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.
