'The Defiant Ones:' HBO's star-studded ride through music history

(CNN)Featuring a who's who of music stars that have crossed Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine's paths, "The Defiant Ones" is a slick, ambitious four-part HBO documentary, charting the parallel rise and friendship of the two producers. While occasionally guilty of pushing his protagonists' legendary reps a bit too hard, director Allen Hughes delivers a pair of Horatio Alger stories in one fascinating package. Both are credited with tenacious instincts and a golden gut, such as Iovine recognizing that the song "Because the Night," an afterthought to Springsteen, would be a hit if Patti Smith recorded it. Hughes (whose directing credits include the features "Menace II Society" and "From Hell" with brother Albert) has shot the documentary in a brisk, cinematic fashion, using rapid cuts between interview subjects and the musical score (which includes the theme from "The Untouchables") to add a sense of urgency to this unfolding history.

Thinking inside the box: how cask wine became cool again

Cask wine, box wine, goon bag whatever you call it, wine in a box has a bad reputation. But wine enthusiasts are changing all that Cask wine? I havent drunk that since I was in my 20s. So said a middle-aged customer, somewhat sniffily, to me upon being presented with a carafe of wine that had been freshly decanted from a three-litre bag-in-box cask. But the wine inside that cask a fresh and light blend of sangiovese, colorino and canaiolo from Tuscan producer Casale, made from organic grapes and with natural yeast was a far cry from the cask wines that customer would have quaffed decades ago. The natural wine movement an umbrella term for the popularity of wines made from organic or biodynamic grapes, vinified with naturally occurring wild yeasts, unfiltered or unfined, and made with minimal additives or other trickery has already had a profound impact on how […] Read more »

Does the fashion industry still need Vogue in the age of social media?

Indeed, when Alexandra Shulman vacated the editors chair at British Vogue, having occupied it for a quarter of the magazines 100-year history, it was wholly expected that her replacement, Edward Enninful, would bring in a team to put his own stamp on the industry glossy. Last week Emily Sheffield, Shulmans deputy and predicted by many as a shoo-in for her job, handed out invites to her leaving party, while Enninful who officially takes the helm on 1 August announced film-maker Steve McQueen and long-time friend Naomi Campbell as contributing editors. Kate Moss, already a contributing editor and regular cover girl, will continue working for the title. That his shake-up would cause ripples beyond Londons Vogue […] Read more »
