Paris Can Wait Marries Insight And Indulgence

Paris Can Wait begins with a jazzy number. Anne (Diane Lane) leans reflectively against her hotel balcony while staring out at the sparkling French coast. She muses at her croissant breakfast and snaps a few photos that are simple yet striking—a paradox that defines the film. Her workaholic husband (Alec Baldwin) yaps on the phone....

Alien: Covenant: A Welcome Comeback of the Xenomorph

In the age of prequels and sequels, it is hard to find quality films that can be part of a whole while also working well as standalone products. Alien: Covenant, the sixth installment of Ridley Scott’s revered Alien franchise, is one such film. As both a sequel to Prometheus and a prequel to 1979’s Alien,...

“Adjusting” Perceptions of Chiropractic

I grew up with a deep respect for the human body. My dad is a chiropractor, and from him I received regular chiropractic treatment (adjustments) and learned about...

Cultural Switch-Ups: Reproductive Rights in Chile

When you see Instagram posts of people’s study abroad experiences, you never see the 2 a.m. Wednesday night faces of desperation as gringos try to decipher jumbled streams of slang and typos in different languages. You don’t see your fellow type-A Hoyas throwing their Google Calendars to the side as they beg their new classmates...

Carrying On: Hoya Saxa, or Something

If you could do it over again, would you choose Georgetown? I sat there staring at the question. “Well, it’s more nuanced than just ‘yes’ or ‘no,’” I thought. No, I wouldn’t. That sounds bad. Yes, I would. Well now I’m just appeasing the survey. No, I wouldn’t. I didn’t know how to answer. I...

Shelley At Ridley Scott’s age (incredibly, he turns 80 this year), it seems natural to ponder subjects like death, destruction, and meeting one’s creator. Scott has spent a career creating; like the Engineers in Prometheus (2012), he may be fascinated or afraid of...

Discovering Radiohead’s OK Computer Twenty Years Later

Twenty years ago this week, Radiohead released its genre defying—and defining—OK Computer to widespread critical acclaim. The album was released just four months after I was born, and my parents, being Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash fans, did not keep me in touch with the latest trends in music. Since then, Radiohead has existed in...

It combined elements of traditional murder mysteries with surrealist imagery and character drama.
