Netflix’s 20 biggest critical flops, from Emily in Paris to Rebecca

For those who have a masochistic streak, there are few things more fulfilling than hate-watching awful films and TV shows. And there are plenty of them: this week, Ben Wheatley’s lavish yet weirdly empty adaptation of Rebecca appalled critics and fans alike – from Armie Hammer’s custard suit to the cringey script. And earlier this month, Emily in Paris hit screens, inspiring a deep hatred in critics who condemned it for “caricaturing” French...

Album reviews: The White Stripes – Greatest Hits, Yungblud – Weird!, and Tori Amos – Christmastide

The White Stripes – Greatest Hits ☠☠☠☠☆ The White Stripes, Detroit’s candy cane sorta-siblings, bestrode Noughties indie rock with a fire-blues fervour that the military might of seven entire nations couldn’t have held back. Their brilliance was in rendering the complex deceptively simple. Guitar and drums. Red and white. “Brother” and “sister”. Yet behind their cartoonish construct lay virtuosic musicianship, a secret marriage and a...

Golijov: Falling Out of Time review – meditation on grief is an allusive patchwork

In the early years of this century, the Argentinian Osvaldo Golijov was one of the most sought-after composers around. In works such as the choral St Mark Passion and his opera Ainadamar his eclectic style, with ingredients including pop, klezmer, new tango and Sephardic chant, and paying little attention to stylistic boundaries, was accessibly packaged and attracted a wide audience. But it’s a long time now since Golijov completed a major work,...

Let Them All Talk review – haughty Meryl Streep is queen of the high seas

There’s an awful lot going on in this new movie from Steven Soderbergh. The title is appropriate: it’s garrulous, elegant, bristling with classy performances from an A-list cast, and Deborah Eisenberg’s screenplay has a theatrical intimacy. It’s loosely and waywardly plotted, perhaps as a result of having gone through many drafts, though maybe not enough. It is slightly unfocused and uncertain as to where its emotional centre really lies –...
