'Juliet, Naked': Anatomy of a Triangle
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
06:06PM / Thursday, September 13, 2018
Ethan Hawke's Tucker Crowe in Jesse Peretz's intelligent, seriocomic "Juliet, Naked," had me thinking back to 1969 when, during a hiccup in my education, I visited my best friend, rock 'n' roller Howard "Richard" Tepp, in Malibu. It was the era of free love and, like the fictitious Tucker Crowe, Howie, through the cooperation of some enthusiastic groupies, had strewn the landscape with several progenies. The other similarity between the two is the cult following that grew out of their brief stardom.   Fact is, throughout history, there have been many such multi-pollinating troubadours who, intentionally or not, have substituted legacies of their DNA

The new Taconic High opened with 820 students, up more than 100 from last year. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The new Taconic High School opened on time, on budget, and with tremendous fanfare.    But not everything is perfect. The building isn't 100 percent complete yet and traffic on Valentine Road has become very problematic. But the doors are open and a ribbon-cutting featuring state officials is scheduled for Oct. 19.   "Taconic opened up on time. We are on budget. And we are done-ish," Superintendent Jason McCandless said.   The auditorium is still under construction and students haven't been allowed in there. That was eyed as the very last
