Alexis Arquette, Actress and Transgender Activist, Passes Away at 47

12 September 2016 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Alexis Arquette, the transgender actress born Robert Arquette, passed away at the age of 47 yesterday. The news was confirmed by the actress' siblings, Patricia Arquette, David Arquette, Rosanna Arquette and Richmond Arquette. No cause of death has been given at this time. But here is part of the statement written by Patricia Arquette, on behalf of the entire family.

"Our sister, Alexis Arquette, passed away this morning, September 11th, 2016. Alexis was a brilliant artist and painter, a singer, an entertainer and an actor. She starred in movies like Last Exit to Brooklyn, Pulp Fiction, Jumpin' at the Boneyard, Of Mice and Men, The Wedding Singer and The Bride of Chucky. Her career was cut short, not by her passing, but by her decision to live her truth and her life as a transgender woman. Despite the fact that there are few parts for trans actors, she refused to play roles that were demeaning or stereotypical. »

We'll Never Forget Alexis Arquette Simply Because of This 1 Role

11 September 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Alexis Arquette died at age 47 on Sunday, and while she was known for her famous family (her brother is David Arquette, her sisters are Patricia and Rosanna Arquette), she was a fiercely talented actress in her own right. Alexis had 70 film and TV credits to her name, including Pulp Fiction, She's All That, and Friends. However, when I think of Alexis Arquette, there's one film that pops into my mind: 1998's The Wedding Singer. She played Robbie's (Adam Sandler) eccentric backup singer, George. No one could have played that part like she did, and her presence elevated that romantic comedy to a whole new level. Watch her shining moment, a gloriously unique version of Culture Club's "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me," above. It's impossible not to appreciate her genius. Fearless. She made such an impact in this role that Boy George himself spoke out about her death on Sunday. »

She was the fourth of the five Arquette kids, all of whom became actors, with Rosanna Arquette leading the way to fame in the early 80s. Alexis was surrounded by all her siblings when she died as they listened to her favorite songs. She passed during David Bowie's "Starman." (So many sad goodbyes in 2016.)

Born Robert, she took the name Alexis early on, long before coming out officially as transgendered. Onscreen her first appearance was uncredited in the Bette Midler comedy Down & Out in Beverly Hills  (1986).

Her official debut though was as the trans prostitute "Georgette" in one of Jennifer Jason Leigh's most critically acclaimed showcases Last Exit to Brooklyn (1989)...

Beauty vs Beast: Here Come The Bridesmaids

22 August 2016 1:35 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here -- you want to know something shocking? Alright "shocking" might be me overexaggerating (thank you for that new word, Ryan Lochte) but I was shocked anyway - I have never done an edition of "Beauty vs Beast" for Bridesmaids. Doesn't that seem absolutely impossible? I went back and forth through the archives myself a couple of times to make sure but it's true. I couldn't believe it - I saw it was Kristen Wiig's 43rd birthday today and I thought to myself, "Well maybe there's something besides Bridesmaids that I can do, since obviously I'd have done Bridesmaids by now," but nope, no, haven't, kuh-rrrrrrazy!

So let's! I've seen this movie so many times at this point (if it is on cable, and it is always on cable, I will stop my life and I will watch it) that I managed this entire post without »

Beauty vs Beast: Who's Those Girls

15 August 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Jason from Mnpp here, letting you know for this week's "Beauty vs Beast" that sometimes, at night times, I close and lock the door so no one else can see and... I dance! I dance all by myself! And tomorrow we will all dance (for inspiration) because tomorrow Madonna, the one and only, is turning 58. So now is not the time to haggle over her acting skills - let's just accept the fact that the world would be a less fun place if the she-lady of white lace gloves had never stomped into it, and look at what is probably her best (fictional) turn on-screen, in 1985's Desperately Seeking Susan.

I had never seen this movie until earlier this year when our estimable host Nathaniel dragged me to it at a screening at the Metrograph here in NYC, can you believe that? Speaking of, Metrograph is doing an entire retrospective »

Susan Seidelman Looks Back: How ‘Smithereens’ Defined Her Career – Girl Talk

28 July 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present and future.

Susan Seidelman had just completed her first feature when the Cannes Film Festival came calling. In 1982, Seidelman wasn’t yet 30; she was only a few years out of film school and had only a single feature under her belt. But that didn’t matter to the world’s most well-regarded festival. They wanted Seidelman’s “Smithereens,” and the ensuing reception for the film — a punk-infused dark comedy about the bohemian underworld of New York City featuring a not entirely likable lead character — didn’t just change Seidelman’s life; it changed the way American independent cinema was received around the world.

Smithereens,” shot guerilla-style around the city with a cast and crew made up of many of the filmmaker’s Nyu classmates, marked a sea change for Cannes: It was the first American independent feature had »

Kill Your Friends Review

31 March 2016 8:00 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Music is an ever-changing business and that business is fickle. Few lines of work are more cut-throat than the music biz and Hollywood loves to accentuate that about it’s sister industry. It’s a fascinating, frustrating free-for-all watching the players and heavy hitters crossing lines and breaking rules, all vying for the next big hit song or hot band. Ethics, morals, loyalty… these have no place here.

Kill Your Friends is the newest film to examine these escapades, written by and based on John Niven’s novel, the film is directed by Own Harris, who cut his teeth making episodes of edgy television shows like Misfits and Black Mirror. Harris definitely brings an edgy style to the film, one that is both unique and influenced by modern masters, undoubtedly including Danny Boyle among a few others.
