Here's what's coming to Amazon Prime in March

For the last several years, Amazon has had a sideline in peddling straight shots of pulpy mystery to those with a craving for it, distributing the near-annual installment of writer Sarah Phelps’ glossy, lurid, emotionally charged set of Agatha Christie adaptations to an American audience.

Doc Savage, your grandpa's favorite superhero, is getting his own TV show

Netflix docuseries follows the trial of Gabriel Fernandez’s murderers—and of the system that failed him

Netflix has quite a number of true crime documentaries, in both feature and series form, but even in that crowded field, The Trials Of Gabriel Fernandez is likely to stand out.

Neither director Brian Knappenberger (The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story Of Aaron Swartz ) nor any of his talking heads do any digging to find out who killed eight-year-old Gabrial Fernandez. That’s incredibly...

Here's what's coming to (and going from) Netflix in March

Contemporary culture is determined to make all of us think the 1980s were a more innocent time. We know this isn’t true. Even if the adults making movies and TV shows, writing music and books, came of age during the decade and remember it mostly as an era defined by neon, synthesizers, and good movies , it was also a period of right wing ascendancy and social conservatism in countries like...

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The National headline this year's Pitchfork Music Festival

Now in its 15th year, the festival will return to the Windy City’s Union Park from July 17 to 19 with a slate of artists that span genres...

Sufjan Stevens and Lowell Brams' new video sets New Age sounds against death-defying dirt-bikes

Earlier this month, Sufjan Stevens announced a mostly instrumental New Age collaboration with his step-father, Lowell Brams. Called Aporia, it pairs sci-fi themes with analog synths and an altogether gauzy vibe, and was directly influenced by the scores to films like Blade Runner , Under the Skin , and Hereditary . We got a taste of the album’s spacey vibe with its previous single, “The...
