    Dr. Strange - Grant Morrison's the best writer in comics--and maybe the oddest

    When this column debuted at the beginning of 2000, readers and editors scoffed at its occasional subject matter, the comic book. Kids' stuff, they growled, junk food for adults who still live in their parents' basements. And maybe they were right bac...

    The Prince - At long last, the Godfather's son makes his first film, and it was not easy

    Ramblin' Women - A road story that runs out of gas

    What a difference a week makes. In the last issue of New Times, Florida Stage in Manalapan was lauded as the Best Theater in South Florida. Now along comes its final show of the season, Women Who Steal, which is, to be blunt, the worst show of the st...

    What's a Matta? - This retrospective of one of the 20th Century's most underrated artists is a must-see

    Normally, my jurisdiction as art critic for New Times Broward-Palm Beach extends no farther south than North Miami's Museum of Contemporary Art, the inclusion of which I've managed to justify because no other South Florida museum consistently feature...

    Pie Kids - How two American filmmakers made a very British Boy

    At first, they approach tentatively, their pens and posters timidly extended as though afraid the two men standing beneath the blank movie screen might bite or bark them out of the theater. "No, no," insists Chris Weitz, standing next to his older br...

    Best Rock Band - Baby Robots

    Good things do come from Boca Raton: fine matzo ball soup, for instance. The blue hair rinse is divine. And Baby Robots, Boca's resident art-damaged combo, provides the town with a slightly deviant edge that it has long lacked. Why? Because the 'bots...

    Best Male Rock Vocalist - J.C. Reilly

    Best Concert of the Past 12 Months - Dashboard Confessional, December 11, 2001

    There's nothing quite as thrilling as catching an up-and-coming young act on the threshold of a national French kiss, which is what audiences have witnessed over the past year with Boca Raton's Dashboard Confessional. And when these saviors of the e...

    Best Act to Leave Broward-Palm Beach in the Past 12 Months - James Judd

    Best Bar in Broward - The Poor House

    There is no bastion of cool like the Poor House. Located in an ostensibly historic district (whose anchor is a new $65 million, pastel-shaded mall) in the center of a town bent on cannibalizing its own past, the rough wooden interior of the Poor Hou...

    Best Bar in Palm Beach - Blue Martini

    Best Bar on the Water - Le Tub

    The sky is heavy and gray. A soft rain falls. You're sitting on a dock built by hand in the 1970s from bits and pieces of other people's Hollywood Beach docks, at a table fashioned from a big hunk of flotsam that washed up here too. Russell Kohuth's...

    Best Rock Club - The Culture Room
