    2021 marks the 60th Anniversary of the Stuntmen’s Association. Founded in 1961 by Loren Janes, a stunt double for Steve McQueen, and Richard Geary, a double for Robert Vaughn, the idea was to professionalize the world of stunts.

  • ‘Justice League’ Investigator Says Walter Hamada Did Not Interfere as WarnerMedia Defends Exec From Ray Fisher Allegations February 27, 2021
    WarnerMedia has broken its silence over Ray Fisher’s recent tweets about the investigation into alleged misconduct on the set of “Justice League.” In the most recent tweet, posted Saturday morning, Fisher claimed that DC Films President Walter Hamada “delegitimize[d]” the investigation, and that Warner Bros. lied to the press about it. “Do ya’ll remember tha […]

  • ‘The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run’ Review: The First All-CGI SpongeBob Adventure Has His Skewed Spirit of Fun February 27, 2021
    Here’s a vintage SpongeBob moment, the kind that makes some of us who are years past the demo feel like we can’t get enough of him. In “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run,” our hero, voiced in that Daffy-Duck-on-happy-pills way by Tom Kenny, discovers that Gary the Snail, his beloved pet companion, has been […]

  • Alice Cooper Has Some ‘Detroit Stories’ to Tell February 27, 2021
    The only thing that Alice Cooper has forever done better than scare and shock is create titillating heavy rock filled with odd, often dangerous characters and their noir-ish tall tales. Cooper’s new “Detroit Stories” is ripe and rocking with such offbeat personalities and their memories, all in dedication to the Motor City where Alice Cooper […]

  • Morgan Freeman Salutes Cicely Tyson as an ‘Icon’ and ‘Pioneer’ at AFI Awards February 27, 2021
    In a video toast, Morgan Freeman praises Cicely Tyson as an “icon, a pioneer whose life and work tell the story of America, bravely and boldly.” His tribute was part of AFI’s 21-day salute to the best film and TV work of 2020, with the build-up starting Feb. 5. As Freeman notes in his intro, […]

  • Rachel Lindsay Deletes Instagram Following Harassment From Bachelor Nation February 27, 2021
    Media personality Rachel Lindsay, who was The Bachelor franchise’s first-ever Black lead in 2017, has deleted her Instagram account due to harassment and hate she has received from Bachelor Nation. The online harassment follows Lindsay’s “Extra” interview with “The Bachelor” host Chris Harrison, during which he defended current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell […]

  • Weta Digital’s R. Christopher White on Black History: Making Our Place February 27, 2021
    I’ve always been fascinated with the history of spaces, knowing there are stories encapsulated in a place. How one can enter a room and receive cues to all that has happened there. As I reflect on Black History Month, I think of the pioneering work of those that came before and the movement of history […]

  • Elizabeth Taylor, ‘Cleopatra’ Star and Oscar Winner, Was a Pioneering AIDS Activist February 27, 2021
    Elizabeth Taylor, who would have turned 89 on Feb. 27, lived multiple lives. She was a movie mega-star, a tabloid mega-celebrity (which are not always the same thing), an innovator in creating herself as a brand — and a tireless and effective philanthropist and activist. She was adored, admired, denounced, scandal-ridden and unpredictable, and the […] […]

  • Lady Gaga’s Dogs Recovered Unharmed at L.A. Police Station February 27, 2021
    A woman turned in Lady Gaga’s two French bulldogs at a Los Angeles police station on Friday night, two days after they were stolen in a brazen armed robbery in Hollywood. Lady Gaga’s dogwalker, Ryan Fischer, was shot once while struggling with the robbers on Wednesday night. He is in stable condition, according to police. […]

  • Another Santa Ana event to target Southern Calif. this weekend February 27, 2021
    Only a handful of days after gusty winds last buffeted portions of Southern California, another Santa Ana event is set to ramp up across the region this weekend. High pressure will build across the northern Rockies throughout the day on Saturday and reach its maximum strength by Saturday night. “The clockwise flow around the high...
  • Temperatures jump as winter 'heat wave' envelops parts of Europe February 27, 2021
    The latter half of February brought a winter “heat wave” to many parts of Europe that started the month in a deep freeze. In the waning days of the month, people across Europe were treated to a nice spring preview and a few high-temperature records were even rewritten. The brutal winter conditions that took hold...
  • Landslide carries 100-year-old cemetery into the sea February 26, 2021
    Hundreds of coffins and two chapels fell into the sea after a landslide caused a portion of a cliffside cemetery in northwestern Italy to collapse earlier this week. Workers captured footage of the walls of the traditional Italian cemetery cracking before falling over the cliffs of Camogli, a fishing village near Genoa. Photos have emerged...
  • Gulf Stream is weakest it's been in more than 1,000 years, study says February 27, 2021
    A group of scientists from Europe presented new research this week claiming that the Gulf Stream is weaker now than it’s been at any point over the last 1,000 years. The Gulf Stream is an Atlantic Ocean current that plays a largely hidden role in shaping weather patterns in the United States. Much has been...
  • 'I ride it out.' When a hurricane comes roaring up the East Coast, one community stays put February 28, 2020
    When hurricanes and severe storms strike the East Coast, they often batter coastlines, displace famous landmarks and even move whole populations away forever. But there are some groups of people along the South Carolina and Georgia coast, such as on St. Helena Island, South Carolina, that have not only endured centuries of storms, but some...
  • Get ready for March's top astronomy events February 26, 2021
    March signals a change in the weather as the seasons shift from winter to spring, and as the seasons turn, the duration of the night will soon be shorter than the length of daylight, putting a shorter limit on the amount of time that people can spend under the stars. Since the nights are getting...
  • 'Historically' low flu activity reported throughout the US this year February 25, 2021
    While the flu season is far from over and flu cases have been reported year-round in the United States in the past, during a typical year, influenza cases would likely ramp up during the fall and winter, peaking in February. Not this year. “We haven't picked up any outbreaks of influenza or anything really, it's...
  • Photographers in awe as rare Yosemite firefall illuminates El Capitan February 25, 2021
    Yosemite National Park is one of the most spectacular sights in California, filled with an expansive wilderness, granite cliffs taller than buildings and Sequoia trees, some of the largest living things on Earth. However, for just a few days every February, photographers flock to a small waterfall to watch water cascade down the cliffside right...
  • The 'average' hurricane season has a new normal February 24, 2021
    There are fewer than 100 days until the 2021 Atlantic basin hurricane season begins and you may be asking yourself, “Wait, didn’t the last season just end?” While 2020 didn’t spawn the longest-lasting period of tropical activity on record for the Atlantic basin, although it was close, it was most certainly the most active season...
  • AccuWeather's 2021 Canada spring forecast February 26, 2021
    It may not feel like it everywhere just yet due to the polar vortex overstaying its welcome in northwestern parts of Canada, but the change to spring is just about a month away. Astronomical spring officially begins at the equinox, which will occur at 5:37 a.m. EDT on March 20, 2021. For those counting down...

  • From Wars Abroad, to Peace at Home
    On February 23, 2021, we published “No Direction Home” by Anjan Sundaram, a personal essay about the ways his experience as an itinerant journalist, working in far-flung corners of the globe, has mirrored his his father’s life as a business executive who left India for a career in Dubai. The piece explores both the similarities […]
  • Magic in the Everyday: The Art of Bea Nettles
    The artist Bea Nettles was born in 1946 in Gainesville, Florida, and grew up with a love of the natural world. A drawing made when she was in grade school contains, she writes in her 1979 photobook, Flamingo in the Dark, the seeds of her mature work: “plants…an exotic bird, moonlight, water, reflections, and the […]
  • To Hell with Unity
    They had a better class of insult at Catholic boys’ prep schools in the 1950s. During his first semester at Archmere Academy in Delaware, where Latin was a big thing, Joe Biden was given a nickname: Joe Impedimenta. The word referred to his speech impediment, the stutter that meant, as he recalled, “I talked like […]
  • The Arab Spring at Ten
    Ten years ago, crowds took to the streets in countries across North Africa and the Middle East, changing the course of history forever. They wanted to take power away from autocrats and give it back to the people. These nameless women and men were taking part in a mass wave of protest. They were unafraid […]
  • No Direction Home
    My father is highly vulnerable to the new coronavirus. He has acute diabetes, which is complicated by kidney and heart diseases. More and more, he makes reference to his death, which may now arrive sooner. We have not seen each other face to face in a year, each of us living under pandemic-related restrictions. He […]
  • What the FBI Had on Grandpa
    I never considered my grandfather to be a danger to the republic, but J. Edgar Hoover disagreed. When I knew my grandfather, he was in his late sixties, lived on Fifth Avenue, and did not seem very interested in world revolution or overthrowing the US government. But Hoover never ordered the tap removed from my […]
  • Of Angels, Saints, and Faith in Fiction
    In the March 11, 2021 issue of the Review, we published “Spirited Away” by Anne Enright, a review of two recent books on transcendence: T. M. Luhrmann’s How God Becomes Real, an anthropological study of how religious communities, from evangelical Christians to Zoroastrians, cultivate a tangible relationship with gods and spirits, and Eliot Weinberger’s Angels and Saints, part essay, part prose […]
  • America’s Hidden Gulag
    In the summer of 2018, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents brought hundreds of people—flown thousands of miles from the Mexico–US border—to the Albany County Jail in upstate New York. With the Trump administration’s immigration policies in full force that summer, ICE and Border Patrol agents were tearing families apart, putting children in cages at […]
  • Escape from Fortress Crete
    In one of the most audacious feats of World War II, two British undercover agents and a group of Greek partisans in Nazi-occupied Crete kidnapped General Heinrich Kreipe, the commander of the German garrison’s foremost division. Over eighteen days, with a net of enemy troops tightening around them, they marched him across the island’s mountains […]
  • When Engineers Were Humanists
    Let’s say you’re under siege in your castle, surrounded by an unseen enemy just outside the walls, unable to leave home for weeks or months, your strength and hope waning, your desperation growing. (Even if you’re not a fifteenth-century Sienese nobleman, you may have no trouble imagining this at the moment.) You badly need reinforcements, […]
  • The Truth About Museveni’s Crimes
    On January 18, four days after Ugandans went to the polls, Yoweri Museveni, who has been the country’s president since 1986, claimed his sixth election victory—this time against the musician and legislator Robert Kyagulanyi, also known as Bobi Wine—with 59 percent of the vote. During the campaign period, Wine was arrested multiple times, and in […]
  • How Did the Colonies Unite?
    When, Mary Beth Norton asks, did the American Revolution begin? The question is surprising, largely because the answer seems to have been settled long ago—by people who actually participated in it. The revolutionary story that most of us learned at school usually starts in 1760, with the coronation of George III. The colonists loved him. […]
  • Tune Out & Lean In
    A subplot in Tom Wolfe’s 1998 novel A Man in Full involves a young husband and father named Conrad Hensley, a low-level employee in a wholesale food warehouse in California, who is unexpectedly laid off. While he is interviewing unsuccessfully for another job his car is wrongfully towed. His attempt to retrieve it from the […]
  • Spirited Away
    “People evangelize because they fear that the belief to which they have committed themselves may not be true.” T.M. Luhrmann has spent many years doing fieldwork as an anthropologist studying faith communities, and her insights into the experience of American charismatic Christianity are slightly sad. These are people who believe that God speaks to them […]
  • What Dignity Demands
    Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X met only once, at the US Capitol during the Senate debate over the 1964 Civil Rights Act. That chance encounter was immortalized in a photograph that shows the two men shaking hands and smiling but reveals little trace of the public feud that has linked them in our […]
  • The Bloodhound
    Nicholson Baker’s latest book, Baseless, is stuffed with examples of just how inventive we humans can get when devising ways to harm one another. Most of these are biological and chemical weapons cooked up by the American military-industrial complex in the middle of the twentieth century. They include diseases cultivated in laboratory conditions and tools […]
  • The Reader of Rocks
    In 1815 William Smith published the first detailed geological map of an entire country. Its scope was ambitious, as his long, practical-poetic title suggests: A Delineation of the Strata of England and Wales, with part of Scotland; exhibiting the collieries and mines, the marshes and fen lands originally overflowed by the sea, and the varieties […]
  • A Vermeer for the IRA
    In an essay first published by The New Yorker in 1995, Lawrence Weschler described an exchange with Antonio Cassese, the presiding judge at the Yugoslav War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague, whose litany of the horrors recounted in his court had just concluded with a Muslim prisoner’s going mad after being forced to castrate a […]
  • Characters in Search of a Conflict
    “It’s not true at all,” we hear in Luigi Pirandello’s story “Romulus,” “that men come together to offer each other comfort and assistance. They come together to wage war.” Born in Agrigento, Sicily, in 1867, Pirandello grew up in a family that had a certain intimacy with conflict. His maternal grandfather had been involved in […]
  • Phantasms of the Opera
    The movie Gaslight (1944) tells the story of an opera singer, played by Ingrid Bergman, who wonders if she is going insane as the lights in her gaslit house mysteriously flicker and dim. It turns out, however, that her husband, played by Charles Boyer, has been trying to convince her that she is losing her […]
  • Democracy’s Genuine Crisis
    To the Editors: Jackson Lears’s review of Twilight of Democracy by Anne Applebaum [“Orthodoxy of the Elites,” NYR, January 14] fails the first rule of book reviewing: evaluate the book written on its own terms, rather than the book you as the reviewer wish the author had written. Instead of engaging Applebaum’s arguments about how […]
  • The Real Problems with 1970s Psychology
    To the Editors: In Gavin Francis’s thoughtful account of two books on the history of psychiatry [“Changing Psychiatry’s Mind,” NYR, January 14], I was surprised to find a brief discussion of the 1973 study by David Rosenhan, the Stanford psychologist, that accused psychiatrists of being unable to tell the difference between sanity and mental illness. […]
  • A Painter’s Performances
    The high points of the current New York gallery show of the eminent English painter Frank Auerbach are some dozen exquisitely colored and often bristling pictures of people seen from the neck up. Although the paintings include the name or initials of the sitter, more of the titles say “head” than “portrait,” and “head” is […]
  • The Lost Rivers of Owens Valley
    In 2012, archaeologists working with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power made an unsettling find at the edge of an alkali flat known as Owens Lake, at the southern end of the Owens Valley in eastern California. Buried under the salts was an assortment of musket balls, bullets, buttons from US Cavalry uniforms, […]
  • The ‘Lost World’ of Vittorio De Seta
    Time stands still in the series of luminous short documentaries that Italian filmmaker Vittorio De Seta (1923–2011), not to be confused with his near namesake Vittorio De Sica, would later call “The Lost World.” Made in southern Italy and Sardinia between 1954 and 1959, the ten films of “The Lost World” might be considered examples […]

    It was made of water, but not helpfully,a stag walked inside.

  • Why Conspiracy Theories Are So Alluring
    Today, nearly two in five Americans surveyed say they will definitely or probably never take the new Covid-19 vaccine. Many people are understandably wary of the vaccine because it represents a new technology: it contains mRNA, and they worry it might permanently alter their genomes. In fact, this mRNA is quickly degraded by the body […]
  • Georges Perec’s Isle of Tears
    There he is, Georges Perec on site, in one of the immigration center’s old buildings, during the 1978 filming of Récits d’Ellis Island (he wrote the narration that became the book Ellis Island). We see him at a borrowed writing table, on his visit with the director Robert Bober and his crew to the island, […]
  • The Hidden History of Black Argentina
    “This country has no tradition of its own,” Argentina’s master writer, Jorge Luis Borges, told me in an interview in 1975. “There’s no native tradition of any kind since the Indians here were mere barbarians. We have to fall back on the European tradition, why not? It’s a very fine tradition.” The words grate to […]
  • Decolonizing the Museum
    In the February 25, 2021 issue of the magazine, we published “Deaccessioning Empire” by Coco Fusco, a review of two recent books—Clémentine Deliss’s The Metabolic Museum and Dan Hicks’s The Brutish Museums—on the movement to decolonize museums in Europe, and the question of what museums should do with objects and artifacts that were acquired as […]
  • Kamoinge’s Collective Vision
    A week before Thanksgiving, I had the special privilege of viewing “Working Together: The Photographers of the Kamoinge Workshop,” an exhibition at the Whitney about the African-American photography collective that formed in New York City in 1963 and continues today. Inspired by Kamoinge’s spirit of community, I invited Maaza Mengiste and Rachel Eliza Griffiths, two […]
  • A Family Romance
    The “murder trial of the century,” as it was described by The Times of London, opened on March 18, 1957, in Court Number One of the Old Bailey. Dr. John Bodkin Adams stood accused of lethally injecting Mrs. Edith Alice Morrell with an overdose of heroin and morphia; rumor had it that he had dispatched […]
  • Bildungsonline
    “Stream-of-consciousness!” yells the protagonist of Patricia Lockwood’s first novel, No One Is Talking About This. She is, like Lockwood herself, a writer in her thirties with a huge Internet following. She has, like Lockwood herself, a husband, parents, brothers and sisters, friends—all of whom appear in the novel—but she is just as tightly bound to […]
  • Cubism’s Poet
    The French poet Max Jacob united, in both his art and his life, the spirits of the ancient and sharply contrasting commedia dell’arte figures Harlequin and Pierrot. Like Harlequin, Jacob had a boisterous, anarchic wit. He was also, like Pierrot, a troubled figure, by turns romantic and saturnine. From the years before World War I […]
  • Intrepid Navigators
    “Birdbrain,” “silly goose,” “dumb as a dodo”—epithets like these reflect a widespread popular opinion that birds (except perhaps owls) aren’t very bright. Three recent books disagree energetically. “Crows and parrots perform as well as dogs in tests of reasoning and learning,” David Sibley writes in What It’s Like to Be a Bird. Jennifer Ackerman reports […]
  • The Wanderer
    Jan Morris’s remarkable life was made up of many journeys, and now that the journey is over, two examples of her resolute walking are haunting me. One is the thousand steps she made herself take, as a very old woman and “a strong believer in the strength of Routine,” every day, rain or shine, right […]
  • Rathlin Island
    Here, where field drops to sea, where big applause, beginningless, of surf and gulls drowns the fledgling speeches fluttered from the stage our entrance made this gray-green into: properties and features turn to charges that our presence is assertion, groundless, unconfirmed by rocks and waves that turn aside their gaze or merely stand. A man […]
  • Promethean Women
    Here are some ideas for a social revolution. All schools shall be coeducational, with no fees, plenty of outdoor exercise for pupils, and emphasis placed on both learning a foreign language and treating animals with kindness (in order to reduce in children any disposition toward violent behavior). There shall be equality of partners in cohabiting […]

  • Why Was There a Reformation?
    It is a rare and in this case curious event for a major university press to reissue an unrevised forty-year-old college textbook, in a field that has undergone radical transformation since the book’s first edition. Steven Ozment, who died in December 2019, enjoyed a distinguished academic career that took him from Tübingen, Germany, to Harvard, […]
  • Malcolm’s Ministry
    At the end of his remarkable, improbable life, Malcolm X was on the cusp of a reinvention that might have been even more significant than his conversion in prison from criminal predation to religious piety. Although he rose to prominence preaching the bleak, racialist metaphysics of Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam (NOI), which […]
  • Fiction and Life
    To the Editors: I’m delighted the Review chose to write about my most recent book [“A Sickness in the Air,” NYR, February 11], but troubled by the methods your critic deployed. The review relies heavily on material that’s not the book under discussion, notably a profile of me, in New York magazine. I’m confident your […]

    To the Editors: For a biography of the Montenegrin artist Uroš Tošković (1932–2019) I would be pleased to hear from former friends, colleagues, patrons, or anyone with reminiscences or with whom he corresponded during his years in Paris, Serbia, or Montenegro.

  • The Stench of American Neglect
    In 1941 Walker Evans, a photographer, and James Agee, a journalist for Time and Fortune magazines, published Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, their idiosyncratic Depression-era volume of photographs and reporting about a 1936 trip to Alabama’s so-called Black Belt, a region that was, as Booker T. Washington had pronounced, “distinguished by the colour of […]
  • Past Imperfect
    To “jump the gun” is to act too soon, before the proper time, to leave the blocks before the starting pistol has gone off, but what does it mean to “jump the clock,” the title of Erica Hunt’s important volume of new and selected poetry? It sounds like an idiomatic expression, but I don’t think […]
  • Pranksters and Puritans
    Missing from the traditional Thanksgiving narrative—the brutal winter followed by the bountiful harvest—is the horrific epidemic that raged through the Native American community during the three years immediately preceding the 1620 arrival of the Mayflower. Rat feces on boot soles are believed to have carried lethal bacteria from European ships anchored along the New England […]
  • The Power of Catastrophic Thinking
    T. S. Eliot, in his 1944 essay “What Is a Classic?,” complained that a new kind of provincialism was becoming apparent in our culture: “a provincialism, not of space, but of time.” What Eliot had in mind was provincialism about the past: a failure to think of dead generations as fully real. But one can […]
  • The Case for a Third Reconstruction
    Since the election of Joe Biden to the presidency, it is clear that our democracy is at a turning point. The first order of business of the Biden-Harris administration will necessarily be to undo the damage done by the Trump regime’s criminal incompetence and assault on our democratic institutions over the past four years. The […]
  • Deaccessioning Empire
    About ten years ago I read a news story reporting that one thousand human skulls from Germany’s former African colonies had been “discovered” at the Charité hospital in Berlin. In the 1990s I had traveled the world as a caged Amerindian trying to be discovered by the West, in a performance art piece I’d cocreated […]
  • ‘I Never Imagined the Lying’
    On the day after Joe Biden was finally sworn in as president, Aaron Sorkin, the United States’ preeminent political dramatist, seemed as relieved and happy as anyone. But for the writer, now nearing sixty years of age, of a dozen movies, four television series, and six stage plays, the moment has a special significance: best-known […]
  • A Career in Counter-programming
    On January 27, 2021, we published “What the Lincoln Project Gets Wrong About Israel-Palestine,” Peter Beinart’s rebuke to the founders of the anti-Trump political action committee who are now advising the principal rival to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel’s March general election. In the US, these “Never Trump” Republicans style themselves as defenders of […]
  • Aubade
    What if we invented the gods not out of fear, but because we had made works that warranted them, and needed an audience fit for our accomplishments? * January. Upstairs the shower turns on—the youngest son, nearly a man, how diligently he makes ready, each day, for each day’s callings. Calc, AP Enviro, Gothic Lit, […]
  • An Open Letter to President Biden About Guantánamo
    We write to you as former prisoners of the United States held without charge or trial at the military detention facility at Guantánamo Bay who have written books about our experiences. First, we welcome your presidential orders to reverse many unjust and problematic decisions made by your predecessor. We appreciate your repeal of the “Muslim […]
  • The Trump Inheritance
    Before he ascended into the heaven of Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump promised, “We will be back in some form.” Perhaps, in a final flourish of one-upmanship, he was stealing the catchphrase of his reviled successor as host of Celebrity Apprentice, Arnold Schwarzenegger: I’ll be back. In The Terminator, Schwarzenegger fulfills his promise by smashing his car […]
