High and Low NY is the online version of High and Low, the Arts and Entertainment newsletter.
The publication, which was an outgrowth of Quirk's Reviews (see below), was merged with the Macabre
Newsletter to form a new magazine that covers all of the arts, high-brow and low-brow (hence "high and low"), but
always from a cultured perspective. Therefore you might read anything from a review of Aida (Verdi's NOT Elton
John's) to a new graphic novel featuring the X-Men to a Shakespeare video from the BBC to a monster movie on cable. And we
always cover old movies and movie stars. This online publication is brought to you by William Schoell and Lawrence J. Quirk
and you can read more about us and our books by clicking on the link above.
The original film publication Quirk's Reviews still exists in an on-line version and is almost entirely
devoted to classic Hollywood films and film stars -- and more. Give it a look-see by clicking on http://quirksreviews.tripod.com. It's all good!
We are not trying to be another Entertainment Weekly or Vanity Fair with this web
site (whatever their merits). Neither are we interested in just promoting the latest over-hyped, under-talented,
famous-for-five-minutes movie star; our copy is not influenced or generated by press agents with wealthy clients to promote
but by our honest thoughts and educated opinions, together with our recognition that talent and publicity don't
always go together. Therefore you will read about the unsung as well as the celebrated on our pages.
Let us know how you think we're doing!
New articles, reviews, and photos will be posted on a regular basis. We look forward to comments and emails
from our online readers -- click on "contact" on the navigation bar above!
Our additional writers and reviewers include T. Barnes (popular music); Amy Bergner (books/TV) and Brian Carney (soap
operas). They are all busy free-lance writers whose help we very much appreciate.
