Naked Opera commits a fatal error by mistaking its presentation of Marc (Marc Rollinger), a Luxembourger aesthete in search of the perfect production of Don Giovanni, for satirical, when it's actually as thoroughly pedantic as the critique supposedly...

"No, no, no," Pierce Brosnan memorably tutted while taking the reins as 007 and bucking Xenia Onatopp off his crotch in 1995's GoldenEye. "No more foreplay." Two decades later, playing an older, sadder, and wiser secret agent in The November Man, Brosnan's...
