Universe of Keith Haring is a trip through time
by Scott Rice - SGN Contributing Writer

The Universe of Keith Haring
Opening September 19


The '80s are easy to make fun of; parachute pants, mullets, and absurdly enormous shoulder pads. However, these aren't really that much less tasteful than ubiquitous unisex bed-head bobs and skinny jeans that seem eternally poised to slide off ski

Lakeview Terrace simple yet provocative
by Rajkhet Dirzhud-Rashid - SGN A&E Writer

Lakeview Terrace

The Women remake lacks nuance
by Scott Rice - SGN Contributing Writer

The Women
Now playing


The remake is always a dicey proposition. The remake of a classic is nearly impossible and usually thankless. Diane English's remake of the classic George Cukor film, The Women, gets away with it, but just barely.

The men behind Cthulhu's Queer lead
by Scott Rice - SGN Contributing Writer

I wouldn't want to be told I can't write a straight character, so it's disingenuous to say straight folks can't write Queer characters. And, frankly, I've never asked Daniel Gildark or Grant Cogswell, the men behind the local horror movie Cthulhu (now playing), how they self-identify.
