10 Times The Mindy Project Perfectly Captured Life at Dartmouth

(01/12/16 11:00am)

Explaining Big Green culture to someone living outside the Dartmouth bubble is never easy. Trippees? Drill? 'Shmob? What the hell is a Foco? Luckily Mindy Kaling, one of our more famous alums (and former cartoonist for The D), is bringing Dartmouth life to the big screen in her TV series, The Mindy Project. While it's true that Mindy Lahiri never attends Dartmouth in the show, we can't help but notice that a few of her experiences perfectly sum up life at Dartmouth:

World music quartet DakhaBrakha to perform

(01/11/16 11:01pm)

DakhaBrakha, a world music quartet that will be performing at the Hopkins Center on Wednesday, has a sound that is rooted in traditional Ukrainian folk music, but is not limited by that genre — nor by anything else, it would seem. A surprise hit at music festivals such as Bonnaroo and GlobalFest and winner of the prestigious Sergey Kuryokhin Prize for Contemporary Art in 2010, DakhaBrakha describes itself on its website as an “ethnic chaos” group, a title that fits both its sound and aesthetic.

Haynes captures forbidden desire in "Carol" (2015)

(01/10/16 11:55pm)

A chase film that unfolds with surgical patience, “Carol” (2015) focuses on forbidden lovers restrained by the severe conservatism of the early 1950s. Whereas lesbianism only existed in the interstices of 1950s life, Todd Haynes puts it centerstage in this decadent, nostalgic adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 1952 romance novel, “The Price of Salt.”

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" (2015) rejuvenates saga

(01/04/16 1:58am)

Dust off your figurines and recharge your light sabers because J. J. Abrams has salvaged the Star Wars name from the garbage compactor many believed the brand was destined for after the prequels. After its decade-long dormancy, the Force returns with blasters blazing, providing a much needed special effects facelift while adhering to the time-tested franchise formula.

“Sicario” (2015) shines through with its cartel craft

(11/15/15 11:08pm)

Movies these days are addicted to drugs cartels. So popular in fact, they have become been Netflix-ized into the new series “Narcos” (2015). Too many action thrillers employ some drug kingpin as an antagonist crutch, a cardboard cutout of a classical evil whom the bad-ass good guys can shoot at, chase and kill. “Sicario” (2015) works within this mold, but manages to come out as a crystallized, complex negotiation of border politics injected with pinpoint acting and lush cinematography.

A brother and sister traverse around Europe on a what is supposed to be a fun-filled romp and instead find themselves having to deal with the heartbreaking effects of illness and mortality. “Baltimore Waltz,” which was written by Paula Vogel in 1989, the year after she lost her brother to AIDS, centers on Anna and Carl, a pair of siblings who embark on a hedonistic, yet heart-wrenching, European odyssey. The show, which combines the surreal and the serious, will open at the Hopkins Center this weekend and will mark the directorial debut for Julie Solomon ’17.

It is easy to think only about the actors when thinking about a play, but there is much more involved behind the scenes to make sure all of the parts run smoothly. For the theater department’s main stage production of “Don Juan Comes Back From the War,” almost 40 students played a role in the production team, from sewing the costumes to creating the set.
