TBD: Mid-Market Restaurant Live Up to Its Namelessness

The name is the first annoying thing about TBD. It's meant as a reflection of the restaurant's "to be determined" philosophy, claims the menu — which, like most in town, is based on seasonal, local ingredients and changes regularly. But…

"A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III": Look Away

Roman Coppola's new film feels like a noble failure, but it's hard to say exactly why. Maybe it has something to do with how Coppola, as co-writer for Moonrise Kingdom, helped that film transcend Wes Anderson's suffocating control. Here, with…

Nice Kid on a Dangerous Roll

If Wes Anderson and Charlie Kaufman collaborated on a movie about skateboarding, they would be hard pressed to come up with something as whimsically original as the comic fantasia Machotaildrop. Teen skateboarding star Anthony Amedori, a Paul Dano lookalike, plays…

Mr. Fox is a fantastic fit

Given his preference for static, symmetrical, scrupulously color-coordinated and art-directed compositions, it's less surprising that Wes Anderson has gotten around to directing an animated feature than that it took him this long to do it. Likewise, if Anderson — a…
