The Trouble With Trees: Art Critic Devon Britt-Darby Resumes a Career in The Escort Business

It all started when two dudes married a tree. I think. That happened in 2009, but today’s story may actually date back to 2001, when Devon Britt-Darby, also known as the Houston Chronicle’s former art critic Douglas Britt, embarked on a career as an escort.

Before Irréversible, There Was Henri-Georges Clouzot

It’s good news that MoMA will be showing a series of films by Henri-Georges Clouzot between now and Christmas. Long before today’s vogue for “extremity,” Clouzot made films that fiercely challenged audiences’ moral and emotional sensibilities, creating some of the most admirable achievements in French cinema. If, like me, you wish there were more movies like “Enter the Void,” or “L’Enfant,” “Demonlover” or “Ma Mère,” then this is a retrospective for you.
