The GOP's New Tax Plan Will Affect Everyone, But Will It Grow The Economy?

The hubbub over the Republican tax plan has died down some since it passed, but the bill isn't forgotten — not by a long shot. Many Americans will see the effects already this year, when the IRS gives employers new guidance on how much money to withhold from people's paychecks. And you can bet it will be a major talking point in the 2018 midterm elections, supplemented by regular presidential tweets touting new hiring and higher stock prices. Against that backdrop, we received a wave of...

"Lantana" is a psychological thriller that draws together four couples whose lives become as thickly entwined as the lantana's vines...

Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practise to deceive!
~Sir Walter Scott, "Marmion"

WCBE's "It's Movie Time" critics butt heads over the year's Top 25 picks and their Academy Award Choices...

Most of the year's box office block busters may be missing from "It's Movie Time's" John DeSando and Clay Lowe's list of Golden Oldies, but then why would anyone expect these two old curmudgeons to be in tune with what's hip at local multiplexes?

Why can't I learn about the artist's creative process in these films about artists?

"Iris" is not really about novelist/philosopher Iris Murdoch -— it is about her enduring romance with John Bayley and the degenerative effects of Alzheimer’s disease. Her words from the lecture podium are often aimed at the thematic core of the film: the need for love.

Both stories appear to represent the director’s dark feelings about writing, filmmaking, and the critics who accuse him of being superior to his characters.

Todd Solondz's "Welcome to the Dollhouse" showed comic/absurd promise; his masturbation scene in "Happiness" overstepped the boundary of film taste but got everyone’s attention.

Denzel Washington, Kimberly Elise & Daniel E. Smith star in John Q.

In the most blessed country in the history of civilization, is it too much to think that all Americans could have adequate health care?

On Valentine's Day I discovered the love story of the year so tender and tentative I was annoyed when one of the loving couples went at it rather than talk about it...

Gabriele Muccino's "The Last Kiss" is a rapidly paced bedroom romp where everyone is either getting laid or just getting... you've got it... screwed.

For women, hope is the day she will be seen...

"Kandahar," is a sometimes-expressionistic drama about a disguised Afghani woman, Canadian reporter Nafas, trying to get to the city of Kandahar to stop her sister from committing suicide during the next solar eclipse.(Actress Nelofer Pazira went through a similar struggle).

"Behind Enemy Lines" or even "M*A*S*H" pale next to this Cannes winner for best screenplay...

The small town seaport of Camden, Maine rivals Peyton Place as a setting for romance and jealousy...

How director Todd Field (TV series: "Once and Again") gets so much right in his first feature film, "In the Bedroom," but lets it slip away is only one of the mysteries to be solved in this slow-moving story about wife abuse and retaliatory murder.

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/. SCOTT SIMON, HOST: Keith Jackson has died. Whoa, Nellie, as he so often said. He was the voice of college football for more than 50 years, announcing dozens of Rose Bowls, Sugar Bowls, Gator Bowls and many Olympic Games - even auto racing. Keith Jackson was 89 and called his last game just 12 years ago, the 2006 Rose Bowl, which the Texas Longhorns won over the USC Trojans with just 19 seconds left. It was one of the great games of...

Mapping How The Opioid Epidemic Sparked An HIV Outbreak

When people started to show up to Dr. William Cooke's primary care office in Austin, Ind., in 2014 with HIV, Cooke knew it was probably related to the region's opioid epidemic. But what he and the rest of the public health community didn't know was who they were missing or how long the HIV outbreak had been going on. Now they've got a clearer picture — literally.
