Album Review: ‘Hesitant Alien,’ Gerard Way

Music doesn’t exist in a vacuum. The sounds we enjoy are important, but where — and who — we were when we heard them play a huge role in how we feel. Whether it’s Curtis Mayfield pumping us up for a job interview or Cyndi Lauper getting us through a bad breakup, context is inseparable from composition.

Book review: ‘Meka,’ by J.D. Morvan and Bengal

Ever since the reopening of Japan to foreign relations at the dawn of the Meiji era in 1868, a sizable portion of French people have openly and avidly been fascinated by Japanese art and culture. This influence ranges from fin de siècle Impressionism to a wide range of anime- and manga-influenced art in today’s French cartoons and comics.

Film review: 'The Equalizer,' dir. Antoine Fuqua

Robert McCall is clearly a different order of being; this much is made clear in the opening shots of “The Equalizer,” based on the 1980s television series of the same name. These shots reveal McCall’s Boston apartment to be meticulously clean and free of anything inessential. He rises early, shaves his head to the skin, and seems to own nothing of entertainment value beyond his books.
