Can you say inspirational?   I can't remember the last time I left the movie theater thinking that what I had just seen was inspirational. Crazy? Yes. Funny? Yes. Sad and foreboding? Yes, quite often. But inspirational, in this cynical environment, with the Philistines at the gate? Nah, couldn't be. Who'd buy it?   But true enough, relying on the wonderfully positive legacy Fred Rogers bequeathed us, that's the overriding motif of director Marielle Heller's splendidly etched "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood."   You see, borrowing from Mr. Rogers' overwhelmingly positive spiel, I believe even the most disingenuous supporters of the evil

The red-blooded American portion of me, the part that in my youth soaked up John Wayne movies, was gratified by the spirit of director James Mangold's studiously executed "Ford v Ferrari." Rah, rah and all that good stuff.    Ferrari had been dominating world auto racing and its reign might have gone on for a bit longer had it not been for il Commendatore's dissing of the Deuce. That's car enthusiast colloquium for Enzo Ferrari and Henry Ford II. And the automobile industry version of "The Cask of Amontillado" to which I allude concerns Ferrari adding insult to industry when he not only rebuffed the Detroit magnate's attempt to buy his Prancing

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — All children under 18 years of age will receive free admission to the Berkshire Museum in 2020 through an initiative honoring Elizabeth "Buzz" McGraw, president of the museum's Board of Trustees.

  "You see, sir, rich people and theorists, who are usually rich people, think of poverty in the negative, as the lack of riches, as disease might be called the lack of health. But it isn't, sir. Poverty is not the lack of anything, but a positive plague, virulent in itself, contagious as cholera, with filth, criminality, vice and despair as only a few of its symptoms. It is to be stayed away from, even for purposes of study. It is to be shunned."     I think I was about 6 or 7 when someone thought it whimsically wise to inform me that, "The rich get richer and the poor have more children." If memory serves, I at first thought the aphorism rather

Borrowing a smidgen of wiseacre snazziness from "The Maltese Falcon" (1941) and an acidic splash of scandal from "Chinatown" (1974), Edward Norton writes, directs and stars in the best film noir detective yarn to come down the cinema pike since "The Usual Suspects" (1995). And in the process, he probably puts himself in consideration for an Oscar via his Tourette syndrome-afflicted gumshoe, Lionel Essrog, deprived early in the doings of his only friend and mentor, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). So, we're talking loyalty, revenge and all the stumbling blocks those corrupt powers that be will toss in Lionel's way to deter his retribution, all done to the
