What did YOU see this weekend?

 

Elle. Basically the same movie as The Piano Teacher but sillier. Huppert is great, but when is she not? -Jonathan

The Edge of Seventeen because I needed something light and fun. So delightful, and anchored by a wonderful Hailee Steinfeld performance. - Marina

Curio: Trevor Gutherie's Charcoal Drawings

Alexa here to bring a bit of contemporary art to your Monday evening. Trevor Gutherie is a Zurich-based artist who is well-known for his large-scale, photorealistic charcoal drawings that appropriate art history, found photographs, and imagery from contemporary culture with an often mordant wit.  “Appropriation for me is a subtle business,” he explains.

There is a certain aesthetic that I am searching for; the oddball that lends itself to be exploited in my medium.”
