  1. David Edelstein reviews the new Glenn Close film, Albert Nobbs: "The question arises: Is Albert Nobbs a “gay film?” I don’t think sex enters into this particular equation.  For Albert, women are simply safer than men. His longing is for coziness  and affection.” View in High-Res

  1. Music for your Afternoon: To arrive at our final playlist, Texas Public Radio asked — on air and via Facebook and Twitter — for listeners to tell us their favorite movie music and let us know why they love it. From the outset, it became clear that the Oscar winners each year were not always the most beloved songs and scores. Where would we be without Ennio Morricone’s beautiful melody for The Mission, John Williams’ rousing “Raiders March” or Kermit the Frog singing “The Rainbow Connection”?
