Bill Walton, the gregarious NBA star who became an ESPN commentator and was well known as a dedicated fan of the Grateful Dead, has died after battling cancer, the NBA confirmed Monday. He was 71.

Mon 17:38  Jennifer Lopez Says AI Has Been ‘Really Scary’: Ads Are ‘Selling Skincare I Know Nothing About’ Usin
In director Brad Peyton’s Netflix sci-fi action movie, “Atlas,” Jennifer Lopez stars as the titular character, a data analyst who must turn to AI to help save the Earth from an evil robot (Simu Liu). “I think this movie does a good job of showing how AI could go incredibly wrong, and this is how it could go […]
Mon 17:30  ‘Sister Midnight’ Review: Surreal Indian Comedy Swerves Into Genre Excess
Karan Kandhari’s “Sister Midnight” is a surreal Mumbai fable with an aggressive comedic rhythm. It’s composed by hitting the same few notes ad nauseam, but hitting them exceptionally well and for much longer than one might expect before it eventually runs out of steam. All the while, Kandhari takes a novel visual approach to the […]
Mon 17:16  ‘Desert of Namibia’ Review: A Meandering Chronicle of a Listless Japanese Zoomer
“Desert of Namibia,” about a caustic 21-year-old Japanese wanderer, embodies its protagonist’s listlessness to a fault. Director Yôko Yamanaka was still a teenager when she made her debut feature “Amiko” in 2017, a sharply funny high school film with the jagged, quick-cut energy of a YouTube travel vlog. It marked her as a Gen Z […]
Mon 16:15  Emmy FYC Events Experience Packed Houses as Stars and Writers Return, a Year After the Hollywood Str
A year after the Hollywood strikes turned Emmy campaigning into a bit of a muted endeavor, For Your Consideration events are back in a big way for 2024. The networks, studios and streamers have already launched a bevy of activations to celebrate their awards contenders, on top of the usual round of panels, with their […]
Mon 16:11  ‘Norah’ Review: A Striking Debut About Artistic Repression in ’90s Saudi Arabia
The first Saudi Arabian film ever selected for Cannes, the tender rural drama “Norah” is writer-director Tawfik Alzaidi’s first feature film. The story of a schoolteacher tasked with introducing literacy to an isolated village and his unlikely relationship with a precocious young girl, the movie suffers from a few early-career filmmaking tics, which prevent all […]
Mon 15:31  Box Office: ‘Furiosa’ Just Barely Beats ‘The Garfield Movie’ in Disastrous Memorial Day Weekend — th
Garfield has another reason to hate Mondays. In a box office nail biter, “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga” narrowly emerged victorious over “The Garfield Movie” on North American charts. On Sunday, Warner Bros. and Sony both claimed its own movie ranked No. 1 with roughly $25 million over the weekend and an estimated $31 million […]
Mon 15:30  ‘Lula’ Review: An Incomplete Portrait of Brazil’s Fiery Left-Wing President
Directed by Oliver Stone (and co-directed by Rob Wilson), the 90-minute political portrait “Lula” covers a vast amount of historical and contemporary ground. However, despite its handful of rousing moments, the documentary — about Brazil’s current pro-worker president, Lula da Silva — comes from a limited perspective that prevents a fuller examination of the man, […]
Mon 15:15  ‘Misericordia’ Review: Alain Guiraudie’s Darkly Comic Backwoods Fable of Pansexual Desire and Small-
Marking a welcome re-embrace of the streamlined murdery perversities of his terrific “Stranger by the Lake,” Alain Guiraudie gives the Cannes Premiere section one of its darkly sparkling standouts with the unsettlingly offbeat “Misericordia.” In the director’s best work, Guiraudie’s trademark is to infuse genre dalliances with mordant wit and a deliciously peculiar, defiant queerness. […]
Mon 15:00  Billie Eilish’s ‘Hit Me Hard and Soft’ Opens at No. 2 as Taylor Swift Continues to Top Albums Chart
The results are in: Billie Eilish came in second place in the race against Taylor Swift on this week’s albums chart.
