Wildly Expressive Paintings of Bodies of Water

Brooklyn-based, Swiss-American artist Chrissy Angliker, whose work we first learned about on Ignant, paints summer scenes unlike most you’ve probably seen before. In a series of artworks recently exhibited at her solo show Bodies of Water, Angliker’s paintings balance the hectic nature of a crowded beach with an abstract view we have of the ocean, […]

Southern Rock Pioneer Gregg Allman Has Died

Gregg Allman, a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band, which helped shape the Southern rock genre, has died. The artist’s publicist said the cause was complications from liver cancer. He was 69. Allman was the band’s lead singer and keyboardist from Nashville, Tennessee. He started his music career as group the Allman Joys in […]

The pup named Bruno in Noah Baumbach’s new film The Meyerowitz Stories—which has been nominated for the Cannes Film Festival prestigious Palme d’Or—is the winner of this year’s Palm Dog Award. From the Hollywood Reporter: The standard poodle was lauded for his work in Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories, a pawsitively stunning turn as Dustin […]

Gelatin Silver Portraits from the Summer of Love in 1967

Given the state of our presidency today, the summer of 2017 might not be that different from the Summer of Love in 1967, a time of massive cultural and political change when young hippies rejected the American government, the Vietnam War, and consumer culture. San Francisco’s neighborhood Haight-Ashbury was the scene for flower children and […]

‘Hannibal’ Season 4? Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy Are “Keen” on Bryan Fuller’s New Idea

When the beloved, gruesome, and surprisingly network TV-aired Hannibal was canceled in 2015, the news also bore the question of whether this would be one of those shows that’d be resuscitated in our new TV era where nothing ever truly dies — or at least where TV corpses can be dusted off and made into something even […]

Dennis Johnson, Jupiter’s Atmosphere, Mental Health Coverage: This Week’s Recommended Reading

Here at Flavorwire, we pride ourselves on not only writing some of the best content on the internet, but keeping an eye on all of the great writing that other folks on the ‘net are doing, too.

‘Twin Peaks’ Parts 3 and 4 Recap: A Dizzying Dale Cooper Triptych

Before watching the third part of the new, hardly-Twin Peaks Twin Peaks: The Return, I wondered whether after a hypnotically rambling 2-hour premiere, this new episode might restore the zippier, tongue-in-cheekier tone of the original. Show More Summary

10 Great Movies to Stream This Memorial Day Weekend

Happy almost Memorial Day, everybody! Big plans? Hitting the road? Going to the lake? Spending time “outdoors”? Yeah, me neither. So, if I may be so bold, allow me to provide my fellow agoraphobes some weekend viewing suggestions – all titles new (or new-ish) to Netflix, Prime, and FilmStruck, to better while away the holiday […]

Watch Laura Linney and Jason Bateman Try to Disappear in Netflix Series ‘Ozark’

Jason Bateman seems like he’ll soon be monopolizing every emotion you want to feel via Netflix binging — bringing the goofy and absurd with another season of Arrested Development, and the brooding and sinister with Ozark, the 10-episode drama whose first teaser trailer was just released. Show More Summary

Famously Infrequent Canceler Netflix Cancels ‘The Get Down’

Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down explored nothing smaller than the birth of a large portion of the music we listen to today: the pioneering hip-hop and disco made by marginalized youngsters living in the South Bronx during the 1970s. But because it was a Baz Luhrmann production, it wasn’t just the subject that was huge in its scope: so was […]

Alamo Drafthouse Is Doing a “Women-Only” Screening of ‘Wonder Woman,’ and Dudes Are Very Mad Online

The Alamo Drafthouse is a fun place to see a movie. Their selection is good, they serve you yummy food, and they often pair movies with themed snacks and drinks; it’s a good time. And they’ve been known to do special, targeted screenings from time to time – for veterans and active military, students, that […]

‘War Machine’ and the Netflix Evolution

David Michôd’s War Machine is one of those movies that’s more interesting as an object than as a film — more compelling for what it represents than for what it actually is. To wit: after two years of modest indies and prestige projects, it is Netflix’s most direct attempt yet to play with the big boys, […]

The Stupidest ‘Star Wars’ Hot Takes, Ranked

It’s always funny when there’s a May the 4th or D23 or some other special reason to celebrate and commemorate Star Wars on the Internet, as though the Internet isn’t dedicated to celebrating and commemorating Star Wars every other damn day on the calendar. But today actually is a special day for Star Wars, because […]

Game of Thrones Season 7 Trailer Arrives: All Men Must Die, and Are About to Do So In Droves

All the evidence suggests that our world is going bonkers: there’s an unpleasant toddler in the White House, the planet is slowly but inexorably heating up, lunatics are blowing up children in the name of incoherent political and/or religious beliefs, and people are taking Louise Mensch seriously. But if nothing else, we can console ourselves […]

Details About Laura Dern and Benicio del Toro’s Characters Among Bounteous ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Revelations

Vanity Fair has done a massive cover story on the upcoming Star Wars film helmed by Rian Johnson (who also, as a rarity for such an immense-budgeted franchise film, is credited as its sole writer). The piece is a sweeping look into the making of the The Last Jedi — and as limitedly sweeping a preview of it as […]

The Sweetest Debut: M.L. Rio on Shakespeare, Murder, and Dorian Gray Fan Fiction

Welcome to The Sweetest Debut, a regular installment in which we reach out to debut (or near-debut, we’re flexible!) fiction, poetry and nonfiction authors working with presses of all sizes and find out about their pop culture diets, their writing habits, and their fan-fiction fantasies.

Variety reports that The Band’s Visit, the Atlantic Theater’s musical based on the 2007 Israeli film by Eran Kolirin, is marching towards Broadway, with a theater and a date (that’d put it in the running for the 2017-2018 Tonys) already set. Not only did the original run receive two extensions at the Atlantic after having sold out […]

Isabelle Huppert Sings “Happy Birthday” to Cannes. It Is Serious, Funny, Operatic, Joyous, and Mournful.

At Cannes yesterday evening, Isabelle Huppert played co-host for the festival’s 70th anniversary celebration, and sang “Happy Birthday” to…Cannes. The moment was captured by a few people on social media, and while it’s brief, it also feels like something of a portrait of Huppert at her Huppert-iest. I of course do not know personally Huppert at her […]

Good news for people who like shitty ‘80s military agitprop: Tom Cruise says they’re finally going to make Top Gun 2. We can hardly contain our excitement.
