Jamie Lee Curtis stars in Halloween

From our friend, Arch Campbell...

BlacKkKlansman - 3½ Stars. Spike Lee combines the true story of a 1970s KKK sting with a history of American racism from the Civil War to present day.

Christopher Robin - 3½ Stars. Ewan McGregor as grown-up Christopher returns to the Hundred Acre Wood to learn a few life lessons from his childhood pals. Beautifully produced mix of live-action, animatronics, and animation.

Le Kon Food Review

Fried Chicken Torta

One hour to, one hour from. Traveling long distances to review food (even if it's delicious) isn't easy. Harder still for lunch, when time is "of the essence," and you have to rush back to work. But who said being a food critic is easy? Sometimes you have to (literally) go the extra mile, so my readers don't have to. Yesterday's first visit to Top Chef alum Katsuji Tanabe's Le Kon (in Clarendon) featured a few shining moments, but not enough to make a good, lasting impression.
