Writer-director Taylor Sheridan's "Wind River," a murder-mystery inspired by true events, deserves plaudits not only because it is a skilled piece of filmmaking, but also owing to its eye-opening exposé of the disgraceful socioeconomic conditions on Native American reservations.   While the majority of Americans are more or less cognizant of the poverty that wreaks havoc in our urban ghettos, far fewer citizens are familiar with this rural brand of destitution ostensibly swept under the carpet of our national conscience. See it up close and the mind boggles.   Be warned, this is tough viewing. In service to its ugly divulgences, there are few punches pulled.

True pizza lovers like to change up our beloved pie into all kinds of different combinations. We have been unable to live life by pepperoni alone, even though we a lot of us are die-hard pepperoni fans. More than anything, I think we are guilty of just loving all the cheesy combinations a good pizza can provide.

The best thing about pizza, aside from automatically putting us in a better mood, is that there are endless ways to enjoy it. There is a saying that goes We totally agree!

If you're looking to try a new slice of pie, here are five unique pizzas made in the Berkshires that you'll totally want to order this weekend.

"It was one of the communities we sort of imagined when we started the program that could be a cultural district."   But Pittsfield was first on

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Technology from the 21st century has brought a piece of artwork from the first century back to life.

Using a CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machine, Williamstown artist Lindsay Neathawk recently completed a replica of the "Spoils" panel of the Arch of Titus. The arch is located in Rome and was constructed around the year 82 by the Emperor Domitian shortly after the death of his older brother Titus, to commemorate Titus' victories, including the Siege of Jerusalem in the year 70.

The "Spoils" panel is on the south side of the arch and depicts Roman soldiers carrying items taken from the Jerusalem Temple, including the temple menorah,

Call me a hopeless romantic. It's my excuse for liking and recommending to kindred spirits director Marc Webb's decidedly imperfect, melodramatic and oft soap-operatic "The Only Living Boy in New York."    My justification is in service to the rather dire straits in which our nation currently finds itself. Quite plainly, to coin a phrase, what this world needs now is love, sweet love. And while this coming-of-age tale doesn't completely fill said need, it does supply that second-best commodity: sappiness.    It's sophisticated sappiness, but sappiness all the same.   In cosmopolitan Manhattan, Thomas Webb, the twenty-something son of elite,

Before the Ninth, and the "Popular Artists Series," there are three exceptional programs you should consider

The pair took over the former Parlor Cafe on Ashland Street last year. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Now that SereniTea Parlor has an approved liquor license, they plan to host more evening events and bring back community theatre.    Leanne Wilensky and Todd Hamilton took over the former Parlor on Ashland Street last year and since then have been building on their business and finding further ways to entrench it in the North Adams community.   "I want people to feel comfortable here," Wilensky said. "I want this to be people’s place."   Late last month the city approved the café’s all liquor license and although they are still
