WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — In the first part of the 20th century, Claude Flight and his disciples were doing some cutting edge work.

Literally.

Flight is an innovator and leader of a short-lived boom of linocut printmakers that thrived in London in the 1920s and '30s.

He and his contemporaries are celebrated in the Clark Art Institute's exhibit "Machine Age Modernism," on view in the Clark Center through May 17.

The show features colorful, intricate and often highly abstract images of everyday life in England between World Wars I and II. It also gives a sense of the political sensibilities of Flight and artists he mentored at London's Grovesnor School of Modern

Mrs. Goldberger taught me nothing if not to be a snob. But I think if I were sitting at her kitchen table, having endless cups of coffee, puffing on cigarettes (we all smoked then) and discussing "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," she'd laugh and, in her European accent, say, "He's so silly, and he needs to lose weight badly. But he's brave, and he loves his daughter so much. She's a little overweight already, too. She should watch. The second wife left him after six days, no? Poor guy. He's not a real policeman, you know ... just in the mall. You

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Rambling Poets has developed a close-knit group of performers and fans over the past two years.

Thursday night marked the group's "season finale" at the Parlor Cafe, an event that attracted well-known slam poet and co-founder Jacob Snow onstage, breaking his year and a half hiatus.

"I came out tonight to support the poets here and to support my friend putting it on," said Snow, performing as Phoenix. Snow said he used poetry to come out of his "shy kid" shell and is now one of the loudest audience members in the cafe.

There wasn't a seat available for the three-hour slam competition hosted by co-founder and managing

I suspect there will be a spate of movies custom made for baby boomers as they proceed into the sexa- and septuagenarian periods of their lives. They will nurture and extoll the virtues of this mixed blessing that's certainly better than the alternative. Call them the Dick and Jane films for golden-agers: i.e. — See Dick have a hip replacement; see Spot sympathize. Hopefully, most will be as entertaining as writer-director Dan Fogelman's "Danny Collins."

Supplying both affirmation and eloquently imparted nostalgia, the film chooses for its

Trying to figure out the renegade ethos that Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto and his "team" are trying to exemplify in the frenetically action-packed "Furious 7" leaves me at a loss. Still, I'm going to have a go at it anyway ... but not for diehard fans of this hot-rodding franchise that has skidded miserably off course. Devotees couldn't care less what this O.G. (Old Gangsta) thinks about their choice of entertainment. Nope, this is in the service of auto enthusiasts and anyone who feels being well-rounded means having at least a tangential

Warning! Do not see director Erik Greenberg Anjou's mouthwateringly delicious documentary, "Deli Man," without planning to immediately follow it up with a visit to your favorite Jewish delicatessen. Failing to do so would surely be far more injurious to your health and well-being than the artery-clogging ecstasies you will therein imbibe.

Make it a theme day ... like the film, a glorious celebration of a cultural tradition that came to thrive in the New World. Now faced with changing realities, it is proudly championed by a dying
