They returned to Hollywood and appeared in films with the bags and shoes that would help to make the Florentine brand an international fashion powerhouse. Ninety years later, Gucci's FridaGiannini is taking inspiration back from the cinema—as well as art,mus...

Francophrenia: James Franco Unsheltered

Tribeca Film Festival By Ioannis Pappos In quantum laboratories around the world you can see an object in two different places at once. Yes, at the same time. Laugh, I used to, but quantum physics is a radical science. I studied electrical engineering, was taught Heisenberg’s theory that atoms are not things but rather tendencies, and still I can’t totally believe that one object can be in more than one place at the same time. Heisenberg was the first paradox in my adult life, so...
