‘Darkest Hour’ is an Impressive Showcase of an Actor’s Craft

The title of Joe Wright’s Darkest Hour fills the screen in giant, Mindhunter-style text, accompanied by a blast of music, and the film proceeds with the accordant brash confidence. It’s a snapshot of Winston Churchill’s first month or so as Prime Minister of Great Britain, as the country stands on the precipice of WWII and […]

Watch the Full, Fabulous Trailer for Ava DuVernay’s ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ Adaptation

A Wrinkle in Time is one of our most anticipated movies of 2018, for several reasons: the beloved source material, the stellar cast, and of course director Ava DuVernay, helming her first narrative feature since the astonishing Selma. And we’re not the only ones excited about it, apparently; Disney had originally scheduled it for release […]

Here’s the Full List of American Music Awards Winners

The American Music Awards – aka the younger, hipper Grammys – were handed out last night, and boy they sure do like Bruno Mars, who took seven AMAs. Seven! Including Artist of the Year, Video of the Year, and Favorite Album! Hey uh, look, his stuff is catchy and all, but really? Artist of the […]

The Best and Worst of Last Night’s ‘SNL’ with Chance the Rapper

Chance the Rapper nailed it as host on last night’s SNL, even if the spotty as hell episode didn’t always provide him with much material to go on. From confused sports announcer and porn star, to high school nerd in love with his dad and more, Chance was up for whatever and full of enthusiasm. […]

Playful Art Inspired by Your Favorite Cult Movies and TV

“Crazy 4 Cult” is one of the signature series of exhibitions at Gallery1988, our beloved mainstay of pop culture-inspired artwork, perhaps because it’s so durable. The topic is broad – cult movies and television – so 1988’s stable of gifted artist can go to work on just about any film or show with at least […]

Flavorwire Debut: Watch Lola Kirke Try Out Retirement Home Living in the Trailer for ‘Active Adults’

We’ve kept an eye on Lola Kirke since she charmed her way through Mistress America, her breakthrough role; since that 2015 gem, she’s enchanted us on Mozart in the Jungle, amazed us in the woefully underseen AWOL, and startled us in the forthcoming Gemini. Point is, when she’s in a new movie, it has our […]

Women Share Stories About Violence and Harassment in Installation ‘El Tendedero/The Clothesline Project’

The National Museum of Women in the Arts in D.C. is hosting an interactive, site-specific exhibition (that is extremely timely) by Mexico City-based artist Mónica Mayer, inviting visitors to share stories about sexual abuse and harassment, giving audiences a voice. Show More Summary

Real-Life Recreations of Tasty Food Featured in Studio Ghibli Films

Studio Ghibli, the famed Japanese film studio, is known for its stunning animations, colorful characters, and emotional storylines. But Instagram user @01ghibli23 makes a case for the photo-worthy food featured in movies like Spirited Away, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and My Neighbour Totoro. Whether you’re a culinary nerd or worship at the altar of Hayao Miyazaki, […]

‘Mudbound’ is a Harrowingly Timely Period Epic

­Nothing opens a movie like a grave-digging. That’s how Dee Rees starts Mudbound, with two men in a field, digging a hole for their father, trying to get it done before the rapidly approaching rains arrive, and failing. The next morning, they put him in the ground, in a scene full of worried looks and […]

Ridiculously Fun VHS Box Art for Modern Movies and TV Shows

We can’t resist a fun ode to VHS, which is why we’re big fans of IAmSteelberg‘s reimagined box covers for modern genre flix and TV shows. If you’ve been dying to see the art and branding for favorites like Stranger Things, Get Out, and Rogue One transformed into grimy VHS tapes, peeling labels and all, […]

A Children’s Treasury of People Dragging ‘People’ Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ Pick

People magazine’s annual “Sexiest Man Alive,” which has been awarded in years past to no-brainer selections like George Clooney, Channing Tatum, and Denzel Washington, was announced a couple of days ago, and their pick for 2017 is… interesting? It’s country superstar, The Voice co-host, and Gwen Stefani squeeze Blake Shelton. He seems very nice! And […]

Here’s a Bunch of Crap They Sent Us About the New ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Movie

So as you might have heard, DC and Warner Brothers’ Justice League opens in theaters tonight. Your film editor has made the executive decision to pass on this one, because I sat through this and this and this and sorry, life is just too short. (Spend that two hours on Mudbound instead, and thank me […]

Great, Prince’s Paisley Park Vault is in Shambles

Throughout his too-short life, Prince was legendary not only for this talent, but for his productivity; he not only released a staggering 40 studio albums over the course of his 37-year career (including several multi-record sets), but left scores of recorded but unreleased songs in the Paisley Park vaults. The question of those abandoned recordings […]

Watch the First Trailer for the New Season of ‘American Crime Story’

The important thing to remember about The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story is that it sounded, and initially even looked, kind of terrible. The discrepancy between those initial impressions and the final product is a helpful guide when approaching any new show (or film, or book, etc.) but particularly smart to keep in […]

Steven Soderbergh Shot a Horror Movie on an iPhone Due Out Next Year

Insert joke here about Steven Soderbergh not staying retired for long. His next film is a horror movie starring Claire Foy, Juno Temple, and Jay Pharoah, set for a March 23, 2018 release. Oh, and Unsane was shot entirely on an iPhone. According to Pharoah, the shoot for the “reality-horror type” movie, which he compared to the […]

Delightful Illustrations of the Great Movie Dogs

We’ve written before about the surplus of hero dogs in movies, and the logistical considerations for it (and for the complementary use of cats as props for villains). But whatever the reasons, there are a lot of great movie dogs, and the charming new book Pups in the Pictures pays tribute to them in the […]

Cancel All Other Movies and Watch the Grace Jones Documentary ‘Bloodlight and Bami’ Instead

Bloodlight and Bami, Sophie Fiennes’ (The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema, The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology) latest documentary, follows fashion, music, art, and pop culture icon Grace Jones. For five years, Fiennes captured the public and private side of Jones, from her family home in Jamaica to her experimental performances on the stage. Dazed spoke to […]

Amazing Cut-Paper Artworks Inspired by Nature

Pippa Dyrlaga’s incredible cut-paper artworks are created from a single sheet of paper. She creates precise patterns made from hundreds of cuts that form details, like the fur of a cat or the scales of a snake. They are delicate, intricate, and amazing to behold. We first discovered the artist on The Inspiration Grid. Dyrlaga […]

The 7 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week: ‘Atomic Blonde,’ ‘Wind River’

This week’s batch of streaming and disc titles includes one of our favorite summer action flicks – no, we don’t only like snooty art films around here – as well as one of the season’s sleeper hits. We’ve also got a romantic spy picture on Prime, a frothy Shakespeare adaptation on Hulu, and Blu-ray upgrades […]

Errol Morris on Creating the “Everything Bagel” of His New Netflix Series ‘Wormwood’

“Even before I had picked this subject, how it was initially sold to Netflix was as ‘the everything bagel’,” Errol Morris explained. It was late on a Friday night, and he was speaking in front of a DOC NYC crowd that had just – for lack of a less roadworn word – binged the entirety […]
