Hard as it is to believe, 2017 marks 20 years since Paula Cole’s commercial breakthrough. This Fire, her sophomore album, technically came out at the end of 1996. But it really caught fire (no pun intended!) the following year. The album produced two huge hits in 1997 (“Where Have All the Cowboys Gone” and “I Don’t Want to Wait”) and Cole wound up winning the Grammy award for Best New Artist — despite the fact that Harbinger, her debut, was actually released in 1994. Over the...

MAUDIEDirected by Aisling WalshOut June 16 Maude Lewis was a beloved Canadian folk artist who is certainly a worthy subject for a biopic, but is Maudie worthy of her? The vagueness with which director Aisling Walsh drops viewers into Lewis’ world raises many questions. Why is Lewis’ severe rheumatoid arthritis explained away as her being “born funny”? Why did her family reject her? And most importantly, why did this intelligent, willful woman enter into a horrible marriage to a monosyllabic fishmonger? The film’s saving grace, however,...

Vegetables are tossed on top of Perry, right before she’s thrown...
