When the Cannes Film Festival audience stood to applaud James Gray's richly observed autobiographical drama “Armageddon Time," about the director's own 1980s childhood in Queens, Gray's voice quivered as he addressed the crowd. “It’s my story, in a way,” said Gray. “It took every last bit of control not to burst out into tears," Gray said, still recovering the next day in Cannes.

In what would be its biggest victory yet in the war with Ukraine, Russia claimed to have captured Mariupol after a nearly three-month siege that reduced much of the strategic port city to a smoking ruin, with over 20,000 civilians feared dead. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported to President Vladimir Putin the “complete liberation” of the Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol — the last stronghold of Ukrainian resistance — and the city as a whole, spokesman Igor Konashenkov said Friday. There was no immediate confirmation from Ukraine.
While upmarket London newbuilds attract high-profile tenants, older blocks are set to suffer from shift to hybrid working just as costs climb
Modern smartphones are thousands of times more powerful than the supercomputers of a few decades ago. Confirmation of that achievement by the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge national laboratory is expected when the twice-yearly Top 500 listing of supercomputers is published in a few weeks’ time. On the most recent rankings, the US is home to five of the current top 10 most powerful supercomputers in the world.
Bernard Arnault, one of the four or five richest men in the world and leader of a luxury empire, appears to wear the same thing whenever he leaves the house. In the UK, people generally assume that if you wear tweed you are either off to shoot some poor bird, or are a twit.
Nothing manifests my imposter syndrome quicker than hosting a dinner party, so like a government that has run out of ideas I am outsourcing almost every element of this evening to third parties. The first course is his ingenious stewed beef soup, designed during the Great Irish Hunger for those with access to only the ingredients around them, but with potatoes and leeks it’s filling and delicious.
The white paper that launched the cryptocurrencies terra and luna, like all such papers, is composed in the elegant font of a peer-reviewed journal. It cites The Review of Financial Studies and the Journal of Financial Economics. “Terra Money: Stability and Adoption”, released in 2019, lays out two axioms of money.
The National Ballet of Marseille turns 50 this year, but since its early years under the neoclassical choreographer Roland Petit, its history has been somewhat erratic. In the early 2000s, it moved away from classical technique altogether, with the contemporary dancemakers Frédéric Flamand and later Emio Greco & Pieter Scholten at the helm. It has achieved a measure of success, as its current Paris season (at Théâtre de la Ville’s La Villette) demonstrates.
The last time we met Kaley Cuoco’s alcoholic flight attendant Cassie, she had woken up in a Bangkok hotel room next to a bloody corpse. Unable to recall the events of the night before, Cassie turned detective, uncovering a plot involving missing money, a copy of Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment and a lethal British assassin. The second series of The Flight Attendant marks a departure both from the source material — series one was based on Chris Bohjalian’s 2018 novel of the same name — and from common-sense plotting.
The eco-resort-island Soneva Fushi turned out to be paradise, and our son declared that I should regard being able to bring them on this trip my greatest achievement. Because the Maldives is virtually on the equator, no wine is made there. Taxes on imported wine mean prices are steep.
What was your childhood or earliest ambition?To be a priest or an actor. It always seemed to me that, if you were going to be at a public gathering, it looked more fun to be on the stage. Private school or state school? University or straight into work?A private boarding school, my choice.
Wizz Air has announced plans to set up a subsidiary in Malta, underscoring the emergence of the tiny island nation (population just over 500,000) as Europe’s unlikeliest new aviation powerhouse. Chief executive József Váradi says the move will support further expansion and that he is exploring options to set up more subsidiaries and bases in Europe and beyond. The airline’s arrival in Malta is part of a much larger trend.
For the first time this century, Tate Britain outshines Tate Modern to become home to the most dazzling contemporary art on show in London. Cornelia Parker’s retrospective is the season’s must-see exhibition, and to reach it you traverse the length of Hew Locke’s magnificent parade of a hundred plaster and fabric bright, motley carnival figures, The Procession, its joys, pathos and postcolonial narrative exuberantly disrupting the neoclassical Duveen Gallery. Then the rowdiness stills, the colour fades, the tonality is all monochrome shimmer and Parker’s “Thirty Pieces of Silver” quivers in the silence.
On the other hand, “woman in the window” appears to be a trope in art, which I hadn’t fully appreciated until I saw Reframed: The Woman in the Window, the current exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery. From Mediterranean pottery from the fourth century BCE through Botticelli, Raphael and Rembrandt, Sickert and Picasso, to Howard Hodgkin and David Hockney — they were all at it, placing women in windows. At the other end of the show, in a room of six female artists including Cindy Sherman, Rachel Whiteread and Louise Bourgeois (meant, perhaps, to balance out the relentless male gaze we’ve just walked through), Marina Abramović in “Role Exchange” (1975) takes the place of a contemporary Dutch sex worker in an Amsterdam window while the sex worker takes her place in an art gallery.
