AMERICAN CHAOS

Six months before the 2016 presidential election, Jim Stern put his life on hold and traveled through red states to engage with Donald Trump supporters. It was a quest for insights, answers, and anything that could shed light on the billionaire’s surging appeal despite myriad scandals embroiling him. Stern’s documentary examines the difficult issues roiling the nation and chronicles a cultural divide — still woefully misunderstood — that is tearing at the fabric of democracy. Now playing. Area theaters. Visit fandango.com.

AN AMERICAN IN PARIS

A filmed version of the recent Broadway stage musical, adapted from the 1951 film. Director Christopher Wheeldon, who snagged a Tony for Best Choreographer for his efforts, wisely retained much of Gene Kelly’s moves from the movie, most notably the 17-minute ballet set to the first composition that George Gershwin titled “An American in Paris.”

Above & Beyond: Fall Arts Preview 2018

Lily Tomlin

Lily Tomlin, Wanda Sykes, and cable TV’s two Andys — as far as non-singing, non-dancing entertainment goes, those are some of the best and biggest names in show business today. Again this fall, there are an abundance of culinary celebrities popping up — and not just at the annual food-centric fests put on by the Smithsonian, HRC, or MetroCooking DC at the Convention Center: José Andrés, Carla Hall, and Ina Garten are just three who will also be out and about stirring the pot to promote new books bearing their names.
You can also get more than your fill of weighty discussions with experts from the worlds of science, politics, and international affairs. Yet if by chance what you want is more clever comedy with an LGBTQ bent, look no further than Tig Notaro’s Bentzen Ball, which is gayer than ever this

Death and Its Souvenirs: On Murderabilia

DESPITE THE OUTSIZED ATTENTION it has garnered in the media, the artwork produced by the American serial killers of the 20th century has been extremely disappointing.

I don’t mean to say it disappoints in an artistic sense, though that’s also true. Murderabilia — as it is called by collectors and detractors alike — falls far short of the mark that other forms of “Outsider Art” have made on art history. Art brut or naïve art, for example, proves artistically far more subtle and superior to the work of these famous kidnappers and cannibals, as does the output of other nearly anonymous folk artists — those janitors, housewives, and nonviolent maniacs whose art is on display at the American Folk Art Museum. These unlikely artists often surprise us: Henry Darger, perhaps the most famous example, was a hospital custodian until his death, when his landlord discovered

FBI Most Wanted poster for Thomas James Holden

The notion of “wanted” posters has been around since the 1700s, when slave owners circulated descriptions of runaway slaves in an effort to force their return. The idea of itemizing society’s most hardened criminals originated in 1949, when a newspaper wire story profiled several “tough guys” who were in the Bureau’s sights. The

Notorious Outback Murder Cases That’ll Have You Rethinking That Road Trip

There’s something about the vast Aussie outback that feels synonymous with scary shit. It’s likely because there’s so much uninhabited land and the environment is hostile (high temps, low rainfall, etc). Add in the fact that you can drive for hours without a single town on the horizon, and you’ve got the perfect premise for a horror movie, right?

While statistically you’re more likely to die in the outback from being a fucking idiot (read: going for a hike without water, not telling anyone where you are, not paying attention to warnings etc) or be the victim of a crime in the major cities most of us live in, we still continue to associate the outback with fear. We shouldn’t tbh – I love an outback adventure, and the folks in the rural towns I’ve travelled through have been phenomenally lovely and non-murdery – but like I said, there’s something about

South Carolina Woman Charged with Fatally Poisoning Husband Using Chemical Found in Eye Drops

A South Carolina woman has been arrested for allegedly poisoning her husband over a period of three days in July.

On Friday, detectives in York County “arrested and charged Lana Sue Clayton with Murder and Unlawful Malicious Tampering of Food of her husband Stephen Delvalle Clayton between the dates of July 19 to 21, 2018,” according to a press release from the York County Sheriff’s Office.

In the press release, the sheriff’s office also shared that Stephen, 64, died on July 21 at their home, and that “the investigation autopsy toxicology tests discovered poisonous levels of Tetrahydrozoline in the body of the victim.” The chemical is frequently used in eye drops.

“Lana Clayton admitted to investigators she administered the substance to Stephen Clayton without his knowledge,” the sheriff’s office
