Watch Jimmy Kimmel Call Out the Co-Author of the Graham/Cassidy “Health Care” Bill

“Healthcare is complicated,” Jimmy Kimmel admitted on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. “It’s boring. I don’t wanna talk about it!” But he keeps doing just that – first last May, with an emotional plea for fair health care coverage following his newborn son’s brush with death, and again last night, with a scathing monologue against […]

‘Battle of the Sexes’ is a Totally Adequate Docudrama That Needed a Female Screenwriter

In the opening sequence of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris’s Battle of the Sexes, Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) gets a phone call from President Nixon, congratulating her for winning her “Grand Slam” title. She replies, pointedly, “I’m glad to be the first woman to do it as well,” and he immediately changes the subject: […]

Eerie, Beautiful Photos of Abandoned Churches

Photographer and artistic director Francis Meslet, who we discovered on Fubiz, roams Europe capturing photos of abandoned sites and sanctuaries. Meslet’s series of churches, chapels, and other religious spaces caught our attention for the stunning combination of stained glass, rotting wood, and historical elements. Show More Summary

BoJack Horseman’s fourth season is streaming on Netflix and its soundtrack album is awaiting your download, so may we recommend… some artistic accompaniment? Our good friends over at Gallery1988 are currently running a giant show of Bojack-inspired artwork, so swing by if you’re a resident of Hollywoo. And if you’re not, well, here are a […]

The 9 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘Wonder Woman,’ ‘The Big Sick’

This week is another monster – just a reminder, the idea of this column was to do five must-see movies every week, good Lord – with everything from a massive documentary mini-series to a Prince concert film to both the biggest blockbuster and indie hit of the summer. Let’s get to it. ON AMAZON PRIME […]

Watch the First Trailer for the Sight-Restoration Domestic Drama Thriller (?!?) ‘All I See Is You’

The filmmaking career of Marc Forster has been… odd. That fact is made abundantly clear by the “From the director of” card in the trailer for his latest, All I See Is You, which lauds the singular voice behind World War Z, Finding Neverland, and Monster’s Ball. Like, how do you even land on that […]

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Jayne Mansfield

Jayne Mansfield, one of Hollywood’s blonde bombshells, led a storied life and remains talked-about in death. Rumors about the actress’ fatal car crash have persisted in popular culture. Her career as one of the fair-haired women initially hired to be a Marilyn Monroe copy-cat was recently explored by one of our favorite podcasts You Must […]

‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ Wins Toronto People’s Choice Award

The Toronto International Film Festival drew to a close yesterday (and oh yes, you can read all of our coverage here) with the announcement of the festival’s awards, which included a couple of curveballs. The People’s Choice Award is the most high-profile prize of the festival; previous winners have included Amelie, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, […]

Here’s Your Fill List of Last Night’s Emmy Winners

The 69th Primetime Emmys (nice) were handed out last night, accompanied by a few big stories. Chief among them: a celebration of women’s stories, with Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Comedy Series, and Outstanding Limited Series all going to shows with female protagonists (The Handmaid’s Tale, Veep, and Big Little Lies, respectively). And it was a […]

‘The Deuce’ Episode 2 Recap: “Show and Prove”

You’ve gotta give the makers of The Deuce this: if they were weirdly coy about the topic of pornography in last week’s pilot episode, they’re clearly intending to make up for lost time in the second installment, “Show and Prove.” In fact, the very first scene after the opening credits (those divine opening credits) is […]

Please Enjoy Björk’s New Single, “The Gate”

Björk has released “The Gate,” the first single from her forthcoming (and as-yet-untitled) new album. The emotionally heavy nearly-seven-minute track is “essentially a love song, but I say ‘love’ in a more transcendent way,” the Icelandic singer/songwriter explains. It has a more uplifting sound than that of her previous album, 2015’s Vulnicura, which followed her […]

‘Twin Peaks’ Might Be Back In a Few Years, Says David Lynch

Showtime’s Twin Peaks, one of television’s most anticipated revivals, just wrapped up 18 wild and weird seasons on the network. The final episode of David Lynch’s surreal saga left fans with plenty of questions about the fate of several characters, but simultaneously felt like a true ending — particularly in relation to the original show […]

8 Great Black Science-Fiction Films

Game of Thrones is quickly coming to an end (well, in a year or two, anyway), which means the network is seeking its next big hit. HBO just landed a deal for a new George R.R. Martin-produced TV show, reported by Deadline. Who Fears Death is a new drama series in development, based on Nigerian-American […]

TIFF Diary #5: ‘Disobedience,’ ‘Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool,’ ‘Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood’

Rachel McAdams’ great gift as an actor has always been her ability to communicate what she’s thinking, and that’s a particular blessing when playing a character as trapped by tradition as Esti Kuperman, the closeted lesbian in an Orthodox Jewish marriage in Sebastián Lelio’s Disobedience. Her husband (Alessandro Nivola) is about to ascend to the […]

Darkly Beautiful ‘Twin Peaks’ Character Posters

São Paulo-based illustrator Cristiano Siqueira has created a series of posters based on Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival. The artist even created works for the non-human characters in the show, like the nifty chair that belonged to Major Briggs and the black corn (aka death) on the map that Deputy Chief Hawk points out. We first […]

HBO is Shooting Multiple Endings for ‘Game of Thrones’ to Avoid Spoilers

HBO isn’t leaving anything to chance when it comes to one of its biggest series, Game of Thrones. The network will be shooting multiple endings for season 8 — the series’ next and last season, which is set to air in 2018 or 2019. (Yeah, we’re still not happy about the ambiguity of that premiere […]

20 Darren Aronofsky Quotes on Filmmaking, Storytelling, and Channeling a Character’s Emotional World

Friday marks the release of Darren Aronofsky’s Mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem as a couple whose relationship is tested when Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer’s characters show up to their home. Our own Jason Bailey called it “formally impressive and deeply disturbing.” While we wait to see the movie, we’re revising some of Aronofsky’s […]

TIFF Diary #4: ‘mother!,’ ‘Lean on Pete,’ ‘Who We Are Now,’ ‘Super Size Me 2’

Something odd and off-balance is happening right away in Darren Aronofsky’s mother!, in which a young woman (Jennifer Lawrence) is overwhelmed by the sudden feeling of being a stranger in her own domicile. Quite literally the homemaker, she is rebuilding and repainting the remote, burned-out house she shares with her writer husband (Javier Bardem), and […]

Morbid and Hilarious T-Shirts Inspired by ’70s Designs

Graphic designer Steven Rhodes, who we first learned about on Dangerous Minds, has a laundry list of inspirations that we can 100% get behind. His t-shirt creations look like a cross between ’70s psychedelia, vintage science-fiction book covers, a dash of old-school Frank Kozik, and some satanic mid-century twilight zone. Boasting text like “Let’s Sacrifice […]

Watch Rami Malek Perform Queen’s Live Aid Set as Freddie Mercury

After biting our nails for months wondering how this whole Freddie Mercury/Queen biopic thing was going to pan out, we wound up catching our first look at the actor who has some rather large shoes to fill as the British singer with the four-octave range last week. Mercury will be played by Mr. Robot star […]
