The Knick is an episodic TV show that’s airing on Cinemax, which explains why you’re probably not watching it (sorry, Cinemax).

Lisa Vreeland released her second documentary, Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict, last week. In her second film, Vreeland - director of Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel - dives into the complex world of an heiress living in genteel poverty trying to make a name for herself in the topsy-turvy world of modern-art. At the time, no one knew whether to take take Dada, surrealism or abstract expressionism seriously, but Peggy went with her gut and came out on top. In her documentary, Vreeland helps us understand this...

Grappling with good old-fashioned "millennial” issues, Dev and his friends explore dating, sex, careers, The Future, and tacos in the first season of the 10-episode show. Here’s what makes it so special.   1. It’s delightfully feminist Aziz Ansari has long been vocal about his...
