It’s ironic, really, given the actor has mostly shunned the theatre for screen projects such as the cultish TV staple Lovejoy, HBO’s foul-mouthed western Deadwood, and the soulfully hyperviolent John Wick films. In the past, he’s even called for a 20-year moratorium on Hamlet. And yet here, today, he seems a bona fide thesp, delivering sinuous, almost…

Review: Out of God’s Oven & Another India

“The British,” the economist Ashok Mitra told the poet Dom Moraes during a conversation, “imposed a unified administration on an area they called India. When they left, we thought we’d continue the colonial experiment, but we called it a democracy.” The magnitude of contradictions that make up both the concept and reality of India has always been the stuff of legend, but Mitra’s comment is more radical than that – it points to the fragility of democracy in this nation. A riot in Shahdara, Delhi, on 20 August…

Interview: Kanan Gill – “I believe in the gods that I have written”

Your book is titled Acts of God. Do you believe in one and why (yes/no)? PREMIUM Kanan Gill The third option – try again later! The book explores a different way in which it is possible to be a god. To that effect, if one stumbled upon the imposition of having to be a god, and was preoccupied with their own desires what would it feel like to be a subject of this divinity? I think it’s a worthwhile pursuit to reach out to find some freedom from suffering, whether or not that is housed in some divinity. I…

Robbie offered the role to the Israeli actress, according to her Vogue cover story from back in May of last year, believing her to have “Barbie energy,”…

Mike Johnson Says America Deserves God’s Wrath During Jim Garlow Calls
