    The flash of faces across the CNN promo spot is instantly recognizable, a swirl of anchors and reporters ubiquitous in these news-obsessed times.

  • Mystery-thriller 'Grey Lady' bogs down in murky waters

    Mystery-thriller 'Grey Lady' bogs down in murky waters

    The convoluted, often ridiculously forced “Grey Lady” aims for the gravity of such other Bay State-set mystery-thrillers as “Mystic River” and “Gone Baby Gone,” but barely scratches the surface of those far more elevated films.
