152: BEASTIE BOYS‘ ill Communication is 25, Chernobyl on Sky, coming of age comedy Eighth Grade

RADIATION FOR THE NATION: Does HBO’s Chernobyl disaster epic work as either science or drama, or would you be better off reading this excellent book instead? HOUSE OF HOROWITZ: How the Beastie Boys’ rap-funk-jazz monster ‘ill Communication’ remade the 90s. TEENAGE LOBOTOMY: The bleak, comic and heartbreaking life of the contemporary American teenager in new independent drama-comedy ‘Eighth Grade’. And, naturally, a whole lot more.
