Q&A: Magnani, Cameos, Oscar Ties, and Homoeroticism

17 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I promised a second round of Q&A this week so here we go. Seven more reader questions answered...

Mr W: Do you have any thoughts on Anna Magnani? She's one of my Top 10 Actresses of all time, but I don't think I've ever read anything on her from you.

I do not. Embarrassing to admit but I've only seen her in The Rose Tattoo (1955) which she was wonderful in. Any suggestions as to where to start?

/3rtful: Is there one unsung veteran actress you would like to see get an award season career boost through Ryan Murphy?

There's very few veterans I wouldn't want to see good a career boost. But i'll just name a dozen (and anyone reading should know I could list another 5 dozen with ease -- I shoulda been a casting director). Given that Murphy usually pulls from the 80s and 90s actressing packs (which, one assumes, »

Critic-Proof: 9 Movies Other Than Batman v Superman That Overcame Bad Reviews

30 March 2016 12:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Last weekend, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice illustrated a longstanding truth: More often than not, reviews don't make or break a movie. A given motion picture can receive fawning praise from the top critics in the country and audiences may skip it. The same movie could just as easily get negative reviews and audiences can politely ignore them. Case in point: BvS made more than $166 million domestically during its opening weekend even though it currently has a 28 percent "fresh" rating on the movie review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes. This isn't news, of course. More than a few summer blockbusters »
