8 March 2017 7:43 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Today is not only International Women’s Day, but a day when many are choosing to strike for A Day Without Women, an economic protest to remind the nation just how important women’s contributions to society are. And as part of that, IndieWire has assembled a powerful list of shows, all currently streaming online, that would not exist without the brilliant female creators at their center. This is the great TV that happens when women show up. Don’t take it for granted.

“30 Rock” (NBC, Netflix)

Did we fully appreciate the gift we had in Tina Fey’s absurdist take on life behind the scenes of a sketch comedy show, while it was on the air? Maybe not, but here’s what matters: “30 Rock” was one of the most original, bizarre, hilarious and unapologetically female shows of its time, and it holds up damn well.

Film Review: ‘A Very Sordid Wedding’

7 March 2017 1:38 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Writer-director Del Shores’ 2000 comedy “Sordid Lives” could be described as John Waters meets Jeff Foxworthy, a collision of you-might-be-a-redneck tackiness and camp grotesquerie, like the Deep South made over by drag queens. Despite mostly withering reviews, the film picked up a cult following in Lgbt circles, inspiring a short-lived television series in 2008 and now a sequel, “A Very Sordid Wedding,” that brings some actors back and replaces others, but mostly doesn’t mess with the chain-smoking, big-haired irreverence that appealed to arthouse audiences 17 years ago. Shores’ yen for broad theatrics is an acquired taste — and its stylistic indifference is more naturally suited for stage than screen — but fans of the original won’t be disappointed, even as it seems unlikely such a belated sequel will expand their ranks.
