Chandler was far from the glitz of Chicago or the glamour of Los Angeles when it opened for settlement in 1912. But the man whose name the town bore, Dr. A.J. Chandler, envisioned drawing such visitors.
Every day of our lives, we make assumptions. We assume that the people we encounter regularly will behave in the manner to which we are accustomed. We assume that if we take care of our cars, they will get us to where we want to go. In fact, we need to make assumptions to bring order to our world. But in some parts of our life — such as investing — assumptions can prove dangerous.

As the year draws to a close, new awards and Top 10 lists are springing up right and left, many of them singing the praises of the technically brilliant but emotionally flat “Gravity.” While it’s no doubt a must-see experience for any cinephile, the same could be said of an equally immersive but far richer film, “The Great Beauty.” For nearly two and a half hours, this Fellini-esque epic transports us right to the heart of Rome’s vibrant nightlife and high society as we follow an aging journalist who begins to see the world around him from a new perspective.
A cinematic sparring match unlike any other in recent memory, “Some Velvet Morning” offers an unflinching glimpse into the lives of an alluring prostitute, Velvet (Alice Eve), and her domineering lover, Fred (Stanley Tucci). Over the course of 83 minutes, we eavesdrop on this toxic pair as they engage in an impassioned war of words – chatting, groping, yelling and sobbing, all within the confines of her upscale townhouse. Written and directed by Tony-nominated playwright Neil LaBute, this low-budget chamber piece has been flying under the radar since its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, but will surely blindside audiences this winter with nuanced performances and a certain shocking plot twist. Ahead of its Valley release at Harkins Shea 14 in Scottsdale this weekend, GetOut spoke with LaBute about the film, his French influences, and experience collaborating with Tucci and Eve.

LOS ANGELES — There's this weirdly unfounded reputation that just about everyone in Los Angeles is vegan and therefore sunbaked Angelenos only feast on the likes of kale and quinoa. Such a stereotype is antithetical to the City of Angels' unhealthy obsession with the hamburger, an ongoing between-two-buns preoccupation that's birthed hundreds of Southern California burger joints.
Pope Francis has preached the plight of the world’s immigrants. He wants the wealthier nations to take in these “poor, hungry” illegal immigrants who come from not only different religions and cultures but different languages, too.
