Cinema Cindy Reviews ‘Darkest Hour’

on January 16, 2018 - 7:45am
By CYNTHIA BIDDLECOMB
Los Alamos
 
“Darkest Hour”, the award-winning 2017 film, portrays Winston Churchill as he takes up the mantle of Prime Minister in May 1940.
 
This portrayal of Churchill by Gary Oldman won him the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a dramatic feature film and will likely garner him a nomination for an Oscar, if not the win. (This Winston Churchill looks nothing like Oldman’s Police Commissioner Gordon in the Batman movies, so his make-up and hairstyle team ought also to be nominated for Oscars.)
 
Darkest Hour covers only a few weeks in May of 1940, but difficult

Classical Music World
By ANN MCLAUGHLIN
LACA Artistic Director

Every so often, the Los Alamos Concert Association presents an instrument that has more name recognition than the musician playing it.

István Várdai, who is scheduled to perform here Jan. 21, is not a household name in this country (he’s Hungarian and a big deal there) but his cello is named for three famous people. 

The first famous name is Antonio Stradivari who is so universally known as a maker of fine string instruments that just saying “It’s a Strad” is enough to convey that
