Gone Girl

  • Rated as: 5/5

Transformed into the kind of wickedly confident Hollywood thriller you pray to see once in a decade, Gillian Flynn's absorbing missing-wife novel emerges—via a faithful script by the author herself—as the stealthiest comedy since American Psycho. It's a hypnotically perverse film, one that

"Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs"

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

It was rather late in life that Henri Matisse (1869–1954) began to create one of his most extraordinary bodies of work. Starting in the 1940s, he cut out shapes from colored paper, arranging them into compositions that sometimes seemed to push into pure abstraction. Even when they didn't, the

"Robert Gober: The Heart Is Not a Metaphor"

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

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 and the faux-transgressive posture of

"Garden of Unearthly Delights: Work By Ikeda, Tenmyouya & teamLab"

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

The work by the artists in this show departs somewhat from the usual anime-dominated aesthetic that defines contemporary Japanese art. Pop-culture references remain, but they are joined by allusions to Ukiyo-e prints, Medieval Buddhist painting and other aspects of traditional Japanese art and

The Grand Tour

  • Critics choice
  • Free

Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers pass through Grand Central daily, but they probably don’t pay much attention to anything other than navigating the crowds. The Grand Central Partnership seeks to educate natives and tourists alike on the idiosyncrasies of the terminal and its surrounding

Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

  • Price band: 1/4
  • Critics choice

RECOMMENDED: Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) After a two-year redesign by Japanese architect Yoshio Taniguchi, MoMA reopened in 2004 with almost double the space to display some of the most impressive artworks from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Outside, the Philip Johnson–designed Abby Aldrich

Grand Central Terminal, Main Concourse

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice
  • Free

The 1913 Beaux Arts train station is the city’s most spectacular point of arrival. The station played an important role in the nation’s historic preservation movement, after a series of legal battles that culminated in the 1978 Supreme Court decision affirming NYC’s landmark laws. One notable

"The Paris of Toulouse-Lautrec: Prints and Posters"

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

MoMA takes viewers back to La Belle Époque in this survey of the graphic art of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901), surely one of the best-known and beloved names in art history. All of his iconic images are here, along with the landmarks of late-19th-century Parisian nightlife referenced

"Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness"

  • Rated as: 3/5
  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

A MoMA retrospective is usually an indicator of an artist about to become a household name, but I suspect that the work of Christopher Williams is too difficult for that to happen. His show was sparsely attended when I was there, while crowds thronged through a concurrent Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit.
