The Last Thing Mary Saw: Offered exclusively on Shudder, The Last Thing Mary Saw (directed by Edoardo Vitaletti) is an engaging treat. In 19th-century New York, Young Mary, blood trickling from behind the blindfold tied around her eyes, is interrogated about the events surrounding her grandmother's death. What emerges is a story involving religion, lesbianism and supernatural aspects. The movie's a slow burnbut is worth seeing.
Ailey: The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater may have just left Chicago after another extraordinary series of performances, but that doesn't mean you have to wait until next year to experience a part of founder Alvin Ailey's life. The documentary Ailey is a fascinating documentary that not only looks at the works of the company's present incarnation but also examines never-before-seen aspects of his life, including his love life and mental breakdown.
Henson Shaving: The only razor in the world that's produced in an aerospace factory, the Henson Shaving razor ($69) comes in eight vibrant colorsand, more importantly, provides the closest shave I've had in quite some time. (It comes with five blades.) You'll wonder how you lived without it. See hensonshaving.com .
"Women in Wine": Fittingly, on International Women's Day (March 8), "Women in Wine" will take place at avec, 615 W. Randolph St., at 6:30 p.m. For $150 each for the five-course meal, attendees will be treated to dishes such as duck agnolotti with pistachio, herbs and consomme; lobster salad with Meyer lemon aioli and brioche; and green tea ice cream sundae with orange blossom and toasted rice (each with a different wine). A portion of the proceeds are going back to Beverly Kim's nonprofit, The Abundance Setting, which supports the advancement of working mothers in the culinary and hospitality industries.

The Legend of Vox Machina: Of the newest Prime Video shows, Reacher is currently getting a lot of attention (and justifiably so), but don't overlook The Legend of Vox Machina, an animated fantasy series about a group of beings with superheroeswith one (Scanlan) being a pansexual gnome bard. If you like a series with action and nonstop comedy (with a lot of f-words), definitely take a look at this.
