Art ‘Shanty Town’ Event Held In Minneapolis Brewery

For the past decade, people have enjoyed an artist-created “shanty town” on the frozen White Bear Lake. Funding has been a problem, though, so the art shanties are only outside every other year.

Movie Blog: ‘What We Do In The Shadows’ Reviewed

Only have patience for one vampire movie in 2015? Make it this weird, silly, pitch-perfect mockumentary from New Zealand. “What We Do In The Shadows,” created by one of the minds behind “Flight of the Conchords,” has big laughs before the opening credits roll, and it goes on to take vampiric tropes, place them in a modern Wellington cityscape, and twist them into wonderful B-movie jokes.

Movie Blog: ‘Timbuktu’, ‘Burgundy’ & ‘She’s Beautiful’ Reviewed

If “50 Shades Of Grey”looks impossibly boring to you, this might be the antidote. Peter Strickland’s “The Duke of Burgundy” is an avant-garde experience of the sensual and the psychological. While it’s gorgeous and kinky, it’s also a smart study of a complicated relationship, one that both flourishes and withers inside the walls of an elegant, sun-ripened European home.
