Beau Bridges: Have A Heart By Skipping All Meat — Including Fish — During Lent

Just ahead of Lent — when observers are encouraged to eat fish instead of meat on Fridays and Ash Wednesday — Emmy Award winner and vegan actor Beau Bridges stars in a new video for PETA to shine a spotlight on the intelligence, friendliness, and playfulness of octopuses and reveal how these and other aquatic animals are mutilated and killed for human consumption.

“Sea animals aren’t swimming vegetables. They’re ‘sea animals,’ not ‘seafood,’” says Bridges. “They’re smart, social beings who can feel pain. They have more in common with us than most people realize.” But he notes that “there are no federal laws protecting aquatic animals from cruelty.”

The actor goes on to reveal how fish undergo excruciating decompression when they’re violently hooked and dragged from the ocean’s depths, often causing their internal organs to rupture. Those who survive slowly suffocate, are crushed to death, or are

Frasier” star John Mahoney, who died Sunday at 77, didn’t start acting until he was 37 in 1977. Nine years later, he was a Tony-winning actor.

Mahoney, who got his start at Chicago’s renowned Steppenwolf Theatre, won Best Featured Actor in a Play in 1986 for his Broadway debut as Artie, a zookeeper with songwriting ambitions, in John Guare’s “The House of Blue Leaves.”

“I’m just so proud to be a part of this whole proceedings tonight that this wasn’t really necessary, but you’ll never get it back,” a surprised and beaming Mahoney quipped in this speech, which you can watch above.

Mosaic: Season One Ratings

HBO introduced Big Little Lies as mini-series last year, but it was so popular, they eventually renewed it for a second season. Now, here comes the Mosaic TV show. Like Big Little Lies it has a pretty big star taking the lead. What's more, Steven Soderbergh directed it, and alternative view points of the series are available via a new, interactive iOS/Android mobile app. That seems like a pretty big investment for a six-episode series. Could it be the next anthology? Will Mosaic be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. An HBO murder mystery Mosaic stars Sharon Stone, Garrett Hedlund, Frederick Weller, Jennifer Ferrin, Beau Bridges, Paul Reubens, Devin Ratray, Maya Kazan, James Ransone, Jeremy Bobb, Zandy Hartig, Michael Cerveris, Bridey Elliott, Brandon Ray Olive, Trey Burvant, Peter D’Alessio, Jacob Vargas, Loudon Wainwright III, and Allison Tolman.

TV Review: Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Mosaic’ on HBO

TV Review: Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Mosaic’ on HBO
Populated by series like “Broadchurch,” “Happy Valley,” “Top of the Lake” and various versions of “The Bridge,” a TV subgenre has flourished in recent years: It depicts the aftermath of a serious crime in a relatively enclosed community. It’s a niche that the Steven Soderbergh-directed “Mosaic” fits into comfortably; the HBO limited series is a solid and generally satisfying addition to this mystery-thriller category.

The creative teams behind these series typically use the core transgression to delve into the workings of power, money, intimidation and influence in communities that seem close-knit but are actually messy and full of conflict. “Mosaic,” which stars Sharon Stone, Beau Bridges, Frederick Weller and a skilled ensemble, is set in a Utah resort community that revolves around skiing and mineral extraction, and the viewer never quite forgets that mountains and mines can be unforgiving places to get lost. The chilly, windswept setting of Park City, Utah amplifies

Notes On The Landlord And Lee Grant

Hal Ashby’s The Landlord, made in 1970, is probably the best movie of the 1970s not to be widely known by younger audiences, and even by some older audiences whose appreciation of the last great era of American moviemaking needs to be expanded beyond go-to classics like The Godfather and Chinatown and Taxi Driver. It’s Ashby’s first directorial effort, after work as assistant editor and chief film editor on The Diary of Anne Frank, The Cincinnati Kid and In the Heat of the Night, and it finds Ashby delighting in the freedom of fashioning experimental rules of editorial and visual expression in the process of translating a script from Bill Gunn (Ganja and Hess), based on Kristin Hunter’s novel, into what stands today as one of the funniest, most honest, cogent and probing explorations of race and American race relations in movie history.

Sundance Wish List: 70 Films We Hope Will Head to Park City in 2018
The fall is often perceived as the launch pad for awards season, as numerous prestige films compete for attention in the final weeks of the year. For much of the film community, however, it’s also the first major window into movies worth talking about next year. That’s because the Sundance Film Festival lineup typically drops in the middle of November, shaking up the holiday season with a mixture of familiar faces and newcomers who could make an impact in Park City this January. With programmers working in overdrive to complete the lineup in the coming weeks, and filmmakers praying to break through as the deadlines loom, we’ve cobbled together as much intel as we can for this extensive preview featuring dozens of promising titles that stand a good chance at making their way to Sundance this year.

Intriguing New Trailer For Steven Soderbergh's "Choose Your Own Adventure" Film Mosaic

HBO has released a new trailer for Steven Soderbergh's upcoming film Mosaic, which allows its viewers to choose the direction of the story. It's an experimental form of filmmaking it looks like it will be a fun, entertaining, and innovative experience! It's like a live-action "Choose Your Own Adventure" book. I'm sure you all remember those.

When talking about the technology that allows this more immersive movie experience to exist, Soderbergh said:

“It’s a branching narrative piece. Branching narratives have been around forever, but technology now allows, I hope, for a more elegant, intuitive form of engagement than used to be possible. We spent a lot of time on how you touch this thing. I wanted to make sure that it was beautiful and simple, so that when the opportunity arises for you to decide whose perspective you want to follow, it feels organic and not like an

New trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Mosaic

HBO has released a new trailer for Mosaic, a unique storytelling experience from Steven Soderbergh, which is available now via the free app ahead of a traditional six-hour miniseries airing on the cable network in the New Year. Take a look at the trailer here…

Three years in the making, the Mosaic app allows viewers to choose what point-of-view from which to follow the story and to, in effect, build their own experience from the material Soderbergh and Solomon created. The choices one makes build upon one another, enabling multiple tellings of the story from different perspectives and, sometimes, with different conclusions. Viewers will be able to see how their own versions of the story on the app ultimately compare to Soderbergh’s six-part linear narrative in January.

Mosaic is available via a free app now, with a traditional six-hour episodic version slated to air on HBO in January 2018 and
