Mercy, Pity, Peace & Love (MoonJune Records)

 The second album from the progressive rock and jazz group douBt begins with “There Is A War Going On,” a spoken-word rant against the infamous One Percent. It’s a startlingly political—and distinctly American—opening

The Montana Rep comes to Young Auditorium with John Patrick Shanley drama

By Russ Bickerstaff
John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt is kind of a concise, little drama. With just a few characters in just a few different scenes, Shanley renders some remarkable and remarkably topical drama. Part of the beauty of a piece that explores some really important cultural ground is the fact that it actually requires very, very little to produce. There have been three or four different productions of the p...

Tonight @ The Times Cinema, 7 p.m.

As its title suggests, John Patrick Shanley's 2008 drama Doubt is filled with ambiguity. Set in a Bronx Catholic church in the mid-'60s, the film introduces a headstrong nun (Meryl Streep) as she begins to suspect that the church's priest (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) has an inappropriate relationship with an altar boy. Marked by excellent performances, the film was showered with five Academy Awards nominations last week, including best...

Memorable movies of 2008

2008 was historic in many ways, and while the year in film pales in significance with Barack Obama and the Great Recession, '08 was cinematically remarkable for three rivetingly memorable performances. Many years slide into oblivion without leaving a single one. 2008, however, saw unforgettable role-playing by Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight), Sean Penn (Milk) and Mickey Rourke...

In 1964, the time of Doubt, no one spoke of pedophile priests, even if the Roman Catholic Church was already riddled with them.

Neither an exercise in moral certainty nor an easy story for armchair ethicists, Doubt investigates the blurry line between perception and reality...

Everybody loves year-end top 10 lists except me�at least when it comes time to reflect on the year in movies just ended. It�s a frustrating task. The majority of films reviewed in the New York Times will never reach Milwaukee cinemas and the number of non-Hollywood movies shown on local screens declined in 2008 from past years. Also, two Oscar contenders won�t open here until January: Revolution...
