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...

One of the best films of 2001 and one of the most stunning debuts of a director ever...

You'd think angst in the late '80s was reserved for those who could foresee Wall Street greed transform itself into a monumental crash a little more than a decade later. Then there's Donnie Darko, who could see the end of the world prophesied by a menacing Harvey-like bunny, a sort of guardian devil.

"Waking Life" or dreaming life? That is the question Linklater's cast asks in this clever new update of "Vivre Sa Vie" and "My Dinner With Andr?."

When the car comes out of the darkness in Lynch's "Mulholland Drive," check out the babe in the backseat -- but don't try to figure her out.

"Mulholland Drive" is a kaleidoscopic thriller that everyone who's hip thinks they have to figure out. I guess that's what you get when you have a generation of movie goers spoiled by English teachers who made them decipher the allegories in Bergman and decode the religious symbols in Bunuel.

Nicole will win the Oscar for other films, not this one...

Nicole, Nicole, Nicole -— she’s everywhere —- in tabloids without Tom, in "Moulin Rouge" and "The Others," and now in "Birthday Girl." It might have been better if she were in her "Birthday Suit"; then we would have known what director Jez Butterworth had in mind. At any rate, here is a bummer birthday -- the humor is hidden and the pathos is annoying.

If you see "Innocence," you may never have to see another love story...

Writer, director Paul Cox's "Innocence" may be about senior-citizen love, but it really is about how we must be ready when love arrives or when it returns, no matter at what age. As a cautionary tale and a lyric expression of love's power, few current movies can match this film's quiet honesty.

"The Mothman Prophecies" is an X-Files-like trip into the paranormal, disorienting and interesting...

So you're looking for a classy heroic alternate to Julia Roberts' ragged Erin Brockovich? May I submit Cate Blanchett as Charlotte Gray....

So you're looking for a classy heroic alternate to Julia Roberts' ragged Erin Brockovich? May I submit Cate Blanchett as Charlotte Gray, a volunteer for British Special Operations in WWII looking for her missing RAF pilot lover in occupied France. This story has more holes than the crumbling walls of a chateau, but it is just as beautiful and inscrutable.

A trashy potboiler delight...

"Brotherhood of the Wolf" is a French Gothic Romantic thriller in the tradition of Victor Hugo, James Fenimore Cooper, and Jules Verne all rolled in together.

In this popular French potboiler, the Noble Savage returns in all his saintly glory. And although noble savages may be politically incorrect in the U.S. these days, what care the French for our forbiddens?

The audience will be terminally blinded by the worst case of sugar overdose since "The Majestic"...

Sports Announcer Keith Jackson Dies At 89

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. In visualizations published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases , dots and lines define the constellations of Indiana's HIV...
