Why Do Machines Hate Carrie Coon on ‘Fargo’ and ‘The Leftovers’?

21 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Much has been made about Carrie Coon this month, and rightfully so. The Ohio native (but devout Chicago Cubs fan) has taken our televisions by storm with starring roles in the final season of “The Leftovers” and the latest chapter of “Fargo.” In the HBO drama, she plays Nora Durst; a fraud investigator who lost her entire family when 2 percent of the world’s population disappeared. Over on FX, she’s police officer Gloria Burgle who’s busy investigating the death of her step-father.

The two roles are very different, linked only by the actress who plays them (as well as great, dynamic writing). But there is one more common thread tying together Coon’s characters to one another: Machines don’t work for either of them.

Oscar-Winning Director Jonathan Demme Passes Away at 73

26 April 2017 10:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Jonathan Demme, who won an Oscar for directing the 1991 Best Picture winner The Silence of the Lambs, has passed away earlier this morning at the age of 74. According to a source close to the family, the filmmaker passed from esophageal cancer and complications from heart disease. The filmmaker had been treated for esophageal cancer in 2010, and while he did recover, the cancer came back in 2015, and sources said his condition had deteriorated in recent weeks. We have assembled a number of tweets below from filmmakers and actors paying their respects to this iconic director.

IndieWire first broke the news this morning, as tributes have started to flood in from filmmakers such as Edgar Wright, James Wan and actors such as Denis Leary, Michael Chiklis and many more. Jonathan Demme was born February 22, 1944 in Baldwin, Nassau County, New York to Dorothy Louise (Rogers) and Robert Eugene Demme, a public relations executive. »

‘The Leftovers’ Review: Episode 2 Redefines the Series as Carrie Coon Delivers an Astounding Solo Show — And Takes Control

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

[Editor’s note: The following review contains spoilers for the “The Leftovers” Season 3, Episode 2, “Don’t Be Ridiculous.”]

Immediate Reaction:

Another episode of “The Leftovers,” another mind-blowing last-second twist. After an episode spent entirely with Nora Durst (Carrie Coon), we took a trip to the Outback in the final minutes and watched a police officer named Kevin get drugged, tied up, and drowned by a group of women on horseback who are somehow connected to Kevin Sr. (Scott Glenn).

Now, it appears as clear as anything in “The Leftovers” can be that this was a case of mistaken identity: The women, led by the tremendously talented Lindsay Duncan, thought Australian Kevin was American Kevin (Justin Theroux). They believed he would rise from the dead, as Kevin has, but why they wanted him to briefly die and how they found out about him in the first place remain mysteries. Does Kevin Sr. know them? Did he have a copy of Matt’s book? Is this even the present day, »

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?

‘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. »
