GREAT WOMEN
Emma, Little Women

It seems oddly pertinent that the last film I saw in a theater before COVID-19 was one set at a time when infectious diseases ran rampant.

Miles David Moore

A TALE OF TWO TRISTANS

His Tristan for Barenboim is a darker fever fantasy; he is more martyred than transfigured

ON DAVID WILEY AT EIGHTY
