Some science fiction for January

My latest batch of under-the-radar sci-fi movies is anchored by Jung_E, the latest from the great Yeon Sang-ho. Need I say more? Read on there.

The Immortal Jellyfish Girl

The great puppet company Wakka Wakka is back with a dystopian tale that does not cozy up to its young audiences — and it looks and sounds fantastic. Click here for my review of the show, which is at 59E59 Theaters.

Not About Me

Off to Theater for the New City to review Eduardo Machado's latest play, Not About Me. Because this is from the very autofictional Machado, it is, indeed, about him. Click here for my take.


Very happy to be part of the Times team covering the Under the Radar festival. My contribution to this particular roundup was Kaneza Schaal's latest, KLII.

The Witcher: Blood Origin

The Witcher: Blood Origin came out last week but obviously it's not too late to read my feature about it. Thataway for the goods.

December's streaming science-fiction movies

My latest sci-fi column of 2022 came out a couple of weeks ago, and here it is. You know the drill: five streaming under-the-radar movies. Go.

Genre movies of the year

As one of the New York Times's four streaming-genre columnists, I submitted my favorite sci-fi movie of the year — David Cronenberg's "Crimes of the Future." Click here for my and my colleagues' picks.

Off Peak

I have been completely derelict in linking to my stories, so here's to catching up as we enter a new year! First off was a review of Brenda Withers's play, which I caught at 59E59 Theaters.
