EPISODE 3: CHAPTER 3
SYNOPSIS: David searches for answers while a threat looms.
Every week, I sit down to write these reviews, and I don't even know where to begin. The fact of the matter is that I'm more or less in awe of what is happening with FX's LEGION. This show is doing things for comic book-related television that I never would have anticipated.
Bargaining on a new contract isn’t expected to begin until next month, but if tonight's informational meeting is any indication, the Writers Guild of America is definitely on a strike footing. "It seems that if they took a strike authorization vote tonight, it would be favorable," said a seemingly dismayed writer upon leaving the meeting.

Three stars. Rated PG. 80 minutes.

The Academy Award-nominated “The Red Turtle,” from Dutch animator Michael Dudok de Wit, is a sweet, surreal reverie of a film. The first non-Japanese feature to emerge from Studio Ghibli — home of such masters as Hayao Miyazaki and his acolytes — this quiet meditation on humans’ relationship with nature hews to Ghibli’s core values of exquisitely rendered visual images combined with gently ruminative sensibilities.
From its dramatic opening sequence, “The Red Turtle” presents viewers with an alternately frightening and inviting universe, where a nameless man is seen tumbling through storm-tossed waves, later washing ashore on a deserted island.
