Guest Review by Darwyn Carson – “Just one. I’m a few. No Family Too. Who Am I?” Tatiana Maslany is the lifeblood of "Orphan Black" and, I daresay, even with an excellent cast working alongside her, she is central to everything that makes the show works so well.

"Fading Gigolo" is a sweet, bracingly original, wholly entertaining film from John Turturro with a plum part for none other than Woody Allen.

"Joe" paints a rich, multilayered portrait of a hardscrabble existence in this community, not unlike the world we encountered in Debra Granik’s "Winter’s Bone."

On the face of it, "Only Lovers Left Alive" is original and intriguing: Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston play vampires who have been married for centuries.
