These anthologized columns and periodicals revolve around the authors cultural intake between the autumn of 2013 and the summer of 2014.
Amongst the fifty-plus recent films reviewed here are Lars von Trier s Nymphomaniac and Abdellatif Kechiche s La Vie d'Adèle (a.k.a. Blue is the Warmest Color), whose unflinching sex scenes polarized audiences and critics alike; and Noah, Darren Aronofsky s cinematic adaptation of Genesis, in which nudists Adam and Eve are shunned from the Garden of Eden and independent contractor Noah is hired to build a water-resistant animal shelter.
Your hosts also discuss if such popular fictionists as J.K. Rowling and Stephen King are still on top of their game.
Plus: boogying to the finest contemporary musicians.
The Garden of Culture is one sexy, sacrilegious publication indeed.
