The late writer/director Frank Ripploh’s outstanding film “Taxi zum Klo” was a milestone in queer cinema when it was first released in 1980 and has lost none of its excitement or impact over time. The film screens 7 p.m. March 9 at the Lightbox Film Center (formerly International House).

Of all of Toni Morrison’s works, 1970’s "The Bluest Eye" may be her strangest and most controversial. Touching on the Depression Era subject of a young black girl, Pecola Breedlove, criticized for the darkness of her skin and her dreams of “whiteness” (hence the book's title) tears ferociously into topics of racism, incest and child molestation (with numerous state attempts to ban it from libraries and schools).

When Brian Justin Crum first won the hearts of audiences on “America’s Got Talent” in 2016, most people probably didn’t know he was already a seasoned show-business veteran.
