Credit Credit Hendrik Kerstens for The New York Times Supported by ByThomas Chatterton Williams Oct. 11, 2018 One evening early in September, at the peak of that profoundly French moment known as la rentrée, when the entire nation moves in lock step to conclude its holiday season and head back to work, Jacques Audiard, the 66-year-old filmmaker, sat over an espresso-and-grappa-strewn table on a terrace in Venice, straining mightily to comprehend what his longtime writing partner, Thomas Bidegain, was telling him. It was nearly midnight, and Audiard had spent the day fulfilling various promotional obligations, which he does not love. This was all in service of his latest, largest and most expensive offering, “The Sisters Brothers,” a … [Read more...] about Can ‘the French Scorsese’ Pull Off a Western?

Few scientists know more about the mysteries of Jupiter and its icy moons. ByDavid W. Brown Oct. 8, 2018 LOS ANGELES — The data was like nothing Margaret Kivelson and her team of physicists ever expected. It was December 1996, and the spacecraft Galileo had just flown by Europa, an icy moon of Jupiter. The readings beamed back to Earth suggested a magnetic field emanating from the moon. Europa should not have had a magnetic field, yet there it was — and not even pointed in the right direction. “This is unexpected,” she recalled saying as the weird data rolled in. “And that’s wonderful.” It would be the most significant of a series … [Read more...] about How Do You Find an Alien Ocean?

Kirkpatrick and Maggie Haberman Oct. 8, 2018 WASHINGTON — A top Trump campaign official requested proposals in 2016 from an Israeli company to create fake online identities, to use social media manipulation and to gather intelligence to help defeat Republican primary race opponents and Hillary Clinton, according to interviews and copies of the proposals. The Trump campaign’s interest in the work began as Russians were escalating their effort to aid Donald J. Trump. Though the Israeli company’s pitches were narrower than Moscow’s interference campaign and appear unconnected, the documents show that a senior Trump aide saw the promise of a disruption effort to swing voters in Mr. Trump’s favor.

Disaster stories truly flourish on the big screen—a giant, terrifying spectacle of impending doom is far better seen than read about (assuming you escape unscathed from the cinema after a couple of hours).When they’re done well, they’re brilliant. Despite chronicling a cheesy love story during a decades-old disaster, Titanic became the defining movie of the '90s thanks to director James Cameron’s spectacular grasp of dramatic filmmaking.Titanic learned from the brilliant disaster flicks that came before it. Roy Ward Baker tackled the ship’s demise in his 1958 movie A Night to Remember, focusing on the human relationships that are tested by the catastrophe.Alfred Hitchcock reinvented the genre in 1963 with The Birds, which turned the dubious premise of being attacked by a murderous flock of birds into something genuinely scary.
