  • Critics' pick

MoMA reflects on a crucial period for Dubuffet (1901–1985) that spanned the early 1940s to the mid-1960s. During that time, he introduced such radical innovations as mixing sand, gravel and other foreign materials into paint to create thick, roughened...

"Robert Gober: The Heart Is Not a Metaphor"

  • Rating: 4/5
  • $$
  • Critics' pick

I’ve had mixed feelings about the work of Robert Gober, the subject of a 30-year retrospective at MoMA. I admire its introspection, a quality lacking in a lot of today’s gallery fare, but I also find it precious at times. Thankfully, Gober abjures irony...

The explanatory text on the wall at the beginning of MoMA’s blockbuster of around one hundred of Henri Matisse’s cut-outs notes that these well-known works attempted to resolve the “eternal conflict of drawing and color.” Epic though that reconciliation...

Coraline

Rating: 4/5

Maintaining the gothic quirks of his debut, ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’, but adding a welcome layer of queasy childhood angst, Henry Selick’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s bestseller is an original, entrancing, occasionally worrying fairy tale. Wh...

Finding Vivian Maier

Rating: 3/5

In life, she was an eccentric: a French-accented nanny with a comical striding gait—always dressed, whether in the 1950s or the ’90s, in fashions several decades out-of-date—who took her charges on excursions into Chicago’s more colorful neighborhood...

Goodbye to Language

A boat sails into port. Frankenstein author Mary Shelley scratches in her composition book with a quill. The second movement of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony begins, halts abruptly, then begins again. A naked woman pontificates while her male lover ta...

ParaNorman

Rating: 4/5

Norman Babcock (Kodi Smit-McPhee) isn’t your typical moody preteen. Obsessed with horror films to a degree that would have the local asylum readying a padded cell, this introverted outsider is also able to communicate with the dead. Not that Norman c...

The Boxtrolls

Rating: 3/5

It’s no surprise that this digitally animated adventure from the producers of Edward Gorey–esque kids’ fairy tales Coraline and ParaNorman is an ooky, spooky affair. But the sheer stomach-churning weirdness of The Boxtrolls is a shock. In the medieva...

When this Ohio native began to copy the work of her Pop Art betters and claim it as her own, she was dismissed as an eccentric at best, a crackpot at worst. But Sturtevant (1924–2014)—whose first name was Elaine, but who went by her last name only—was...
