The 50 best TV shows of 2017: No 1 The Handmaid's Tale

The year’s standout show was an eerily apt tale of tyranny – but it was also a taut thriller and heart-wrenching drama, packed with incredible female performances

More on the best TV of 2017More on the best culture of 2017

Though it began filming in the summer of 2016, the near-future horror of The Handmaid’s Tale arrived on our televisions with a precise timeliness that could be painful to witness. In episode three, after women had their bank accounts handed to their husbands and were let go from their jobs, people took to the streets to protest. They waved placards and screamed for their rights and for justice, as armed officers blocked their path. A slow, skeletal version of Blondie’s Heart of Glass played out the rest of the scene – June (Elisabeth Moss) and Moira (Samira Wiley) began to realise the mood had turned just as a military figure fired

Mel Brooks is right, The One Show is crazy – thrilling, isn’t it? | Jack Bernhardt

From Debbie Harry’s love of chickens to Corbyn’s love of manhole covers, this blend of surreal banality and political subversion is much more than a talk show

Ah, The One Show. Hosted by Matt Baker – so excitable I’m positive he’s actually just a labrador in human costume – and Alex Jones – contractually obliged since 2010 to smile at all times – it has a reputation of being bland, inoffensive and charmingly incompetent, the Hufflepuff of television. This week, during one of its trademark segues from “fun celebrity interview” to “devastating segment about someone losing their family”, guest Mel Brooks could take the show’s inherent stupidity no more.

That’s how you get Theresa May talking about Eurovision or Christopher Ecclestone matching tennis player to grunt

Hugh Hefner Remembered by Friends, Celebrities and Playboy Bunnies
Hugh Hefner, the legendary founder of Playboy magazine, has sadly passed away. Hugh Hefner died on Wednesday night at the age of 91 and now celebrities and former Playboy Bunnies are paying tribute to the legendary cultural icon via social media. Hefner helped to launch the careers of many models and actresses through the magazine including Pamela Anderson, Jenny McCarthy, and Donna D'Errico, just to name a few. In addition to the models and actresses, Hefner also helped boost the careers of writers and comedians while fighting for freedom of speech.

Drew Barrymore, Farrah Fawcett and Linda Evans are among those who have posed for Playboy. Several Playboy Bunnies became celebrities, too, including Blondie singer Deborah Harry and model Lauren Hutton, both of whom have good memories of their time with Hugh Hefner and Playboy. Hefner ran Playboy from his elaborate mansions, first in Chicago and then in Los Angeles, and

Harry Dean Stanton: An Enigmatic Icon Whose Final Starring Role Might Be His Best

Harry Dean Stanton: An Enigmatic Icon Whose Final Starring Role Might Be His Best
As Ry Cooder’s slide guitar sounds melancholy echoes, the man suddenly appears in the desert, walking purposely toward some vague destination off in the distance. His sunbaked face covered with several days of beard, his pinstripe suit dusty and ill-matched with a red baseball cap, he is plainly driven by some inner demons. Just as plainly, he isn’t going to last much longer.

That’s how Harry Dean Stanton first appears in “Paris, Texas,” the classic 1984 drama directed by Wim Wenders from a screenplay credited to Sam Shepard and L.M. Kit Carson. And while taking stock of the much-respected actor on the occasion of his passing — Stanton died Friday in Los Angeles at the age of 91 — I cannot help viewing that unforgettable image as metaphoric: After a long trudge through a wilderness of secondary roles, he finally broke through in this film to get the attention he so richly deserved.

10 Facts You Might Not Know About Blade Runner

10 Facts You Might Not Know About Blade Runner10 Facts You Might Not Know About Blade RunnerKurt Anthony9/13/2017 9:16:00 Am

Thirty-five years ago, from Ridley Scott, director of Alien, came Blade Runner – a chilling, bold, mesmerizing, and futuristic detective thriller.

Adapted from Philip K. Dick’s visionary novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Blade Runner was released in theatres on June 25, 1982 and has since earned the title of one of the best science fiction films of all time.

Despite the film’s estimated budget of $28M, Blade Runner was not an instant success. The complex plot and slow pacing resulted in low box office numbers, but the dystopian sci-fi classic eventually garnered a cult following and became a leading example of the neo-noir genre.

While we await the highly anticipated release of Blade Runner 2049, the long-awaited sequel, journey with us to the savage world of the year 2019 as

David Lynch: The Art Life



2016 / 1:75 / Street Date September 26, 2017

Starring the One and Only David Lynch

Cinematography: Jason S.

Film Editor: Olivia Neergaard-Holm

Produced by Josefine Bothe

Music: Jonatan Bengta

Directed by Jon Nguyen, Rick Barnes and Olivia Neergaard-Holm

Twin Peaks: The Return recently ended its 18 hour run on Showtime and with that it can be said that the 41 year old cable channel finally made good on its name. Directed by David Lynch and co-written with Mark Frost, The Return see-sawed from soaring fly-overs of Manhattan and Vegas to suffocating dungeons infested with oily-skinned ghosts. It was pictorial storytelling on a grand scale, a work of epic surrealism that challenged the capabilities of any ordinary television screen.

If Lynch and Frost viewed the 1990 incarnation of Twin Peaks as a relatively benign first draft populated by lovable eccentrics, Twin Peaks: The Return could be seen as a take-no-prisoners revision,

Otd: Vera Drake and Lily Tomlin

On this day (Sept 1st) in showbiz history...

1934 Metro Goldwyn Mayer releases their first animated short, The Discontented Canary. It wasn't Oscar nominated but they soon begin to crash Walt Disney's stranglehold on that particular category back then, with nearly annual nominations (for a time) beginning in 1939 (Peace on Earth) and regular wins in the 1940s thanks largely to the Tom & Jerry series. 

1952 Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea is first published. It wins the Pulitzer and gets adapted to the movies twice, the first time as a feature in 1958 with Spencer Tracy and the second time as an Oscar winning Russian animated short in 1999 which was painted on glass. 

1977 Blondie signed their first major record company contract. Whatever happened to that Debbie Harry biopic we were supposed to get? Wasn't it going to star Kiki Dunst or was that just our Tfe fantasy?

‘Atomic Blonde’ Review

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, Sofia Boutella, Bill Skarsgård, John Goodman, Toby Jones, Roland Moller | Written by Kurt Johnstad | Based on “The Coldest City” by Antony Johnston & Sam Hart | Directed by David Leitch

An ice cool Charlize Theron kicks plenty of ass in this stylish Cold War action thriller from the co-director of John Wick, but the script leaves a lot to be desired.

Sporting a distractingly dodgy British accent and a Debbie Harry-style peroxide blonde hair-do, Theron plays MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton, who’s sent into Cold War Berlin to investigate the murder of a fellow agent (Sam Hargrave) and recover a missing list of undercover agents. Her contact in Berlin is shady MI6 station officer David Percival (James McAvoy), who seems to have gone a little too deep undercover as a contraband-toting wheeler-dealer and appears to have his own agenda.

Sure enough, Lorraine

Atomic Blonde review – lean, neon-lit thriller

Charlize Theron excels as an action lead in this cold war spy story, adapted from graphic novel The Coldest City

I can’t think of any actor more deserving of their own pulpy action franchise than Charlize Theron. Having stolen Mad Max: Fury Road from Tom Hardy one-handed (literally), she is relentlessly, murderously brilliant in this adaptation of Antony Johnston’s graphic novel The Coldest City. The setting is Berlin just before the fall of the Wall; the paranoid hangover of the cold war is giving way to a new era of hungry opportunism. A British agent has been murdered; a valuable list is missing. And MI5 asset Lorraine Broughton (Theron, looking like Debbie Harry dipped in venom) is flown in to clear up the mess. There she butts heads with fellow agent David Percival (James McAvoy, skeevy-sexy, accessorised with beer sweats and casual treachery) and has a fling with

Movie Review: Charlize Theron stabs and struts her way through the dumb, retro-cool Atomic Blonde

Looking like a cross between Debbie Harry and a Nagel print, Charlize Theron struts her way through the Cold War howler Atomic Blonde dressed to the proverbial nines, in white pleather raincoats, tailored herringbone wool, and a deadly pair of red stiletto heels, often caressing a cigarette between her fingers. She also gets the shit kicked out of her; it seems no female action hero has taken as many punches to the mouth and eye socket or crawled out of a fight looking worse than Theron’s Lorraine Broughton. She’s a British spy sent to West Berlin in 1989, just days before the collapse of the Berlin Wall, though the actual plot of the movie is almost indecipherable: some junk about a McGuffin, a Stasi defector nicknamed “Spyglass” (Eddie Marsan), and a double agent. But it’s not like that matters. Atomic Blonde is a meaningless fetish piece of ...

Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock review – picture-perfect profile

Photographer Mick Rock makes a terrific subject in this documentary about the doyen of rock music snappers

If you called up central casting and asked for the archetypal hedonistic drug-guzzling 1970s music photographer, the chances are you would get someone who looked a lot like Mick Rock. All attenuated, gangly limbs, anarchic hair and perma-grafted sunglasses, this is the man who, through his celebrated shots of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Syd Barrett, Queen and Debbie Harry – the list seems endless – just about single-handedly shaped the visual history of the music of the 70s and 80s. But what’s astonishing is not so much the sheer volume of Rock’s work and his Zelig-like ability to pop up on the periphery of every happening scene in the 70s; it’s how much he remembers, despite a narcotics consumption that turned his body into a chemical disaster area to rival Bhopal.

Talking Shot! – an exclusive interview with the legendary Mick Rock

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Daniel Goodwin

Legendary glam/punk photographer Mick Rock is a primary player in music/ rock history, having provided some of the most iconic rock imagery to grace the careers and album covers of artists like Bowie, Blondie, Lou Reed, Queen and Iggy Pop.

Rock captured key moments from classic concerts including that iconic shot of Bowie performing fellatio on Mick Ronson’s guitar during the Ziggy Stardust era. He also designed the album covers of Bowie’s Space Oddity, Lou Reed’s Transformer, Iggy and The Stooges’ Raw Power and directed many of Bowie’s music videos.

Rock’s unruly work Mo was also a lifestyle choice. Integrating hard partying and meditation into his photography/practice by saturating himself in the event he was covering instead of adopting the role of a passive observer, yet Rock provided some outstanding imagery as a result.

Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Samuel Spencer

Picture the 1970s in your head, and chances are a Mick Rock image has come to mind. David Bowie managing to be the sexiest man alive despite a red mullet, a business suit and a saxophone? That’s Mick Rock. Topless Iggy Pop bending over backwards in a moment of rock ’n’ roll abandonment? Mick Rock. Debbie Harry looking like the girl next door (if you live next door to CBGBs circa 1974)? That too was done by certain Mr Michael David Rock. Yes, Rock is his real last name.

With that sort of pedigree, ‘Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock’, a new documentary on Rock’s life, would have probably got four stars if it had just been a few of those pictures on the big screen alongside a few anecdotes about doing drugs with David Bowie. However, director Barney Clay (husband of Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs
