‘The Leftovers’ Playlist: Listen to the Righteous Songs From the Final Season of HBO’s Epic

18 April 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Now that the final season of “The Leftovers” has begun, we best enjoy every moment we have left. What better way to exercise mindfulness than to soak in all the beautiful music from the series?

Listen to the Spotify playlist below for all the songs from Season 3 of HBO’s psychological religious thriller-drama-comedy masterpiece. HBO will be updating the playlist after each new episode, so be sure to subscribe or bookmark this page.

When the end of the world is nigh, it’s okay to be a bit confused, but at least we can look to the Book of Kevin — and this soundtrack — for guidance. “Let the Mystery Be” may have been the watchword for last season, but now it’s time to open ourselves to the final judgment and accept what’s coming.

‘The Leftovers’: The 9 Happiest Moments You Might Have Forgotten in All the Darkness

17 April 2017 8:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

No one who has watched even 30 seconds of “The Leftovers” would tell you it’s a cheery show. HBO’s ambitious, poignant, and periodically gut-wrenching drama often chases one devastating moment with another, occasionally pausing to give the viewer a brief, teary respite — if we’re lucky.

Enter Season 3. In any given episode of “The Leftovers,” tears are a sure thing, but there are scenes that spark tears of joy. From Nora’s awkwardly endearing comebacks (“Fuck your daughter!”) to Kevin’s attempts at family bonding to a giant blow-up doll of Gary Busey, the laughs are there, if you can smile through the pain.

‘Veep’ Season 6 Premiere Review: The Best Insults of Episode 1 and Updated Power Rankings

16 April 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Immediate Reaction

The one-two punch of Ben telling Selina “It’s over” and Selina getting on a passenger plane with the common folk provided a summary of what Episode 1, “Omaha,” accomplished: We won’t see Selina in power again anytime soon (if ever), but we will get to watch her writhe in agony while adjusting to a “regular” life.

Between complaining over her five-figure weekly allowance and comparing her election defeat to “a frat house gang rape, except I didn’t even get a candlelight vigil,” the premiere focused on an ex-president still in recovery. Characters alluded to a mental breakdown — one we probably previewed in the waning moments of Season 5 — and Selina’s only joy came when she was planning her secret comeback.

Well, that’s over, and “Veep” is moving forward. We’re going to see a new side of Selina, and a new side of many characters, »

The Leftovers Season 3 Premiere Recap: Kevin Garvey Superstar?

16 April 2017 7:02 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Sunday’s Season 3 premiere of The Leftovers. If you’ve yet to watch, you might want to make a Sudden Departure from this page.

Heaven help him. In The Leftovers’ stunning third and final season premiere, Kevin learned that not only was he seen by Matt as a kind of Jesus 2.0, but the reverend was secretly writing a new gospel to that effect. And miraculously, neither of those twists was the biggest shock in “The Book of Kevin.” What was? Read on and find out…

‘The Leftovers’: The Story Behind The Giant Gary Busey Blow-Up Doll

16 April 2017 7:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Tom Perrotta can’t stop laughing.

The author of “The Leftovers” novel and co-creator of the series is listening to his partner in mischief, Damon Lindelof, explain why and how Gary Busey became the biggest part (literally) of the series’ Season 3 premiere. He knows the story. He was there when it happened. But hey, it’s still really, really funny.

Which, for the record, isn’t a compliment paid to “The Leftovers” often enough, especially since the jokes have been there from the start — just like Gary Busey.

‘The Leftovers’ Review: A Very Funny Season 3 Premiere is Bursting With Mysteries, Callbacks, and Ominous Signals

16 April 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s note: The following review contains spoilers for the “The Leftovers” Season 3, Episode 1, “The Book of Kevin.”]

There was so much to absorb in the first episode of “The Leftovers'” final season that it’s almost unfair of co-creators Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta to throw us such a massive curveball in the final seconds. “Who is Sarah?” will dominate discussion for the next week, if not for the rest of the season, depending on when Damon and Tom decide it’s time we learn the truth.

So let’s get it out of the way now: We don’t know who Sarah is, and we shouldn’t — not yet. “The Leftovers” may be built on a mystery that will never be solved (the sudden departure), but it’s also constructed around the answers to smaller, personal mysteries. Sarah could be Nora in the future, living under a new identity in the post-rapture world. Sarah could be Nora’s long lost twin and a descendant of »

‘The Leftovers’: Damon Lindelof Explains the New Season 3 Credits Sequence — Watch

14 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Clamor for details about the mysterious final season of “The Leftovers” has peaked: “Why are they going to Australia?” “What happened to Nora’s arm?” “How does it end?”

But among these big narrative queries are formal curiosities, as well: “What characters get their own standalone episodes in Season 3?” “What music will make up another sure-to-be killer soundtrack?” And, perhaps chief among them, “Will there be a new opening credits sequence in Season 3?”

Season 1 featured a weighty score paired with Renaissance-inspired paintings depicting a literal departure, with people being sucked up toward a bright white light. Some fans loved the aptly religious imagery and intense music, while others felt it bogged down an already heavy drama series. So Season 2 saw a major change: Max Richter’s score »

‘Veep’ Review: Season 6 Turns an Epilogue Into a Fresh Start as Julia Louis-Dreyfus Continues to Slay

12 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Selina Meyer is out of office, and she’s not going back. Well, not at this time, anyway. As simple as it sounds, the new premise for “Veep’s” sixth season is as unprecedented as how Selina lost the presidency. After all, why track an ex-president? Her time to make a difference was when she was in office, not after she’s left it. Showrunner David Mandel, his team of writers, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ ever-present producing voice take what we’ve been trained to see as an epilogue — the life of a president out of power — and turn it into a new chapter rife with possibility. The results through three episodes are creatively enthralling, purposefully offbeat, and, as always, tied together by ferocious profanity.

Veep,” at its core, has always studied the repudiation of desire. For three seasons, Selina remained at the precipice of her ultimate goal, as we watched »

Kevin Spacey and Kafka with cats: a closer look at Nine Lives

10 April 2017 12:07 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Apr 12, 2017

Kevin Spacey turns into a cat. Christopher Walken. We take a closer look at the Kafka-esque comedy, Nine Lives..

“When Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from troubled dreams, he found himself changed into a monstrous cockroach in his bed.”

See related  Nintendo Famicom Mini: examining Japan's tiny console

So goes the first line in Franz Kafka’s classic short story, Metamorphosis - a tiny, existential drama subject to all kinds of interpretations since its publication in 1915. Even that famous opening line is open to interpretation, as this Guardian piece points out: did Kafka really mean that poor, unfortunate Gregor woke up as a cockroach, another kind of insect, or something else entirely? The German phrase he uses, “Ungeheuren Ungeziefer” loosely translates to “enormous vermin.” 

Whatever Gregor becomes, it’s something pitiful and helpless; he can no longer work, and gradually, he’s shunned by his own family. »

Bill O’Reilly Harassment Allegations: The Murdochs Must Take Action to Preserve Fox’s Legacy

7 April 2017 3:44 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Even with the defection of more than 50 advertisers, Bill O’Reilly is weathering his latest sexual-harassment scandal. Ratings for “The O’Reilly Factor” are up, his new book “Old School” is a bestseller, and he just signed a rich new deal with Fox News Channel.

That makes this an even tougher test for corporate parent 21st Century Fox, and leaders James and Lachlan Murdoch. While O’Reilly is apparently immune to dishonor (and to fleeing sponsors, as long as his faithful viewers tune in), the corporation’s reputation is on the line. And the Murdochs haven’t done much to condemn the allegations of sexual harassment, or detail how they plan to expand efforts to make sure employees, and particularly women, feel safe in the workplace. A hotline isn’t enough.

Ironically, the company has recently made great strides in naming women to high-profile posts on the film side. Stacey Snider »

The Best Twitter Memes on Steve Bannon’s Removal From National Security Council (Photos)

5 April 2017 11:42 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A lot of people weren’t happy when the Trump administration announced that Donald Trump’s chief strategist, former Breitbart News editor-in-chief Steve Bannon, was taking a spot on the National Security Council. So when the news broke that Bannon was no longer a part of the council, many on Twitter rejoiced. Bannon’s exit from the council may be “in no way a demotion” according to sources, but that didn’t stop the memes and jokes. The Twitter account for Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” was out in front following the news to celebrate Bannon’s “graduation.” There’s »

30 Years Back: Celebrating the Cinematic Delights of 1987

29 March 2017 4:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe celebrates the cinematic delights of 1987…

The 80’s mark a special period in cinema for me. It’s predominantly an age thing. I grew up throughout the 80’s, soaking in some fantastic films. It was a rising golden age of blockbusters which took the foundations of what guys like Spielberg and Lucas launched in the late 70’s, as that stark, gritty and dramatically challenging output that delivered some of the best films of all time (The Godfather and more), gave way to more crowd pleasing, optimistic fare. The cinematic landscape went from the likes of The French Connection, The Conversation, and Chinatown to the more light-hearted Star Wars or Jaws.

As blockbusters swarmed the cinemas and multiplexes began spreading, audiences demanded entertainment. That trend has carried on and intensified and it’s truer than ever in these days of Marvel adaptations. The 80’s got me into cinema. That passion »
