Adam Sandler's partially tour de force and indubitably frenetic portrayal of New York Diamond District jeweler/gambler Howard Ratner in "Uncut Gems" is a wildly disturbing adventure yarn, the purpose of which I'm still trying to figure out. Neither a comprehensive character study of its anxiety-ridden, addictive personality nor a scientific delve into the protagonist's torturing affliction, Howard's pillar-to-post rampage in quest of that ultimate score courtesy of a raw, Ethiopian opal will leave you shockingly exhausted.   Nonetheless, when I recently issued that quasi-deterring cautionary to an acquaintance, she seemed even more anxious than before to

LENOX, Mass. — Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum is offering a day trip to New York for an exclusive viewing of the exhibit titled "John Singer Sargent: Portraits in Charcoal" at the Morgan Library & Museum slated for Wednesday, Jan. 8.

This is a rare opportunity to view with an art specialist 53 charcoal portraits by John Singer Sargent (1856-1925), America's greatest portrait painter of his time. These drawn works of art represent a substantial, yet often overlooked, part of his practice – they number more than 750 in total - and demonstrate the same sense of immediacy, psychological insight and mastery of light and shade that animate

"Richard Jewell," director Clint Eastwood's skillfully told account of how a hero was turned into a scapegoat following the murderous bombing at the 1996 Olympics, stokes that greatest fear upon which our judicial system is based: that an innocent soul might be convicted of a crime.   It is everything in a true democracy to protect against arbitrary and random indictment, much to the vexation of today's unscrupulously authoritative voices in America who would sweep due process under the rug in the name of greedy motivations benefiting rich benefactors.   Eastwood, a national treasure by virtue of his probing forays into the American scene, once again makes a

"They were all my sons." — Joe, in Arthur Miller's "All My Sons"   Pogo's Walt Kelly capsulized man's inhumanity to man when he coined a cynical variation on U.S. Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry's 1813 missive to Army General William Henry Harrison, informing, after the victory at Lake Erie, "We have met the enemy and they are ours." Kelly's version, written on the occasion of the infamous McCarthy hearings, and since employed in anti-pollution demonstrations, reads, "We have met the enemy and he is us."   So, what do we do?
