Cadillac Man

The irrepressible Robin Williams is Joey, a trash-talking Cadillac salesman with three women on the line, who becomes an involuntary hero when Tim Robbins smashes his motorcycle into the car showroom and threatens to kill everybody. Roger Donaldson’s crisis-farce black comedy is still funny — and my favorite Robin Williams feature.

“I usually have a sleepy little Twitter account. One day after the story came out, there were over a million views,” she wrote. “Eight out of 10 comments were an affirmation. Two out of 10, the 20 percent that were trolls, were quite disturbing. It felt like a gut punch at times.”

If any good is to come from the ongoing sexual-harassment scandal emanating out of Hollywood and reaching seemingly every other corner of the country, it’ll be thanks to those who have come come forward with their stories.

The End of the Beginning: A Reckoning Thousands of Years in the Making

Uzo Aduba: Instagram /Emma Trim

I don’t know about you, but when I wake up in the morning, even after a decent night of sleep, I am exhausted. I have been exhausted, outraged, moved, anxious, and pretty much every other emotion possible since the first Harvey Weinstein story broke on October 5. Actually, I take that back: I’ve been feeling this overwhelming range of emotions since last year’s election. But the confluence of the reckoning that is happening now — which started in the entertainment business and has morphed into every other workplace — and a serial predator in the White House destroying the fabric of our rights, especially our reproductive rights, sometimes just feels like it’s too much to deal with. It’s hard to concentrate when you don’t know what insane, and much-needed, story will be coming next from the intrepid reporters working diligently to unearth the truth.

Harvey Weinstein Had a ‘Secret Hitlist’ of 91 Names to Prevent From Speaking Out About Him — Report
Harvey Weinstein’s career may be over, but the fallout from his scandal is just beginning. The disgraced former mogul’s story has become even stranger and more dispiriting with the Guardian‘s revelation of a what it calls “a secret hitlist of almost 100 prominent individuals targeted by Harvey Weinstein in an extraordinary attempt to discover what they knew about sexual misconduct claims against him and whether they were intending to go public.”

91 actors, publicists, producers, financiers and other members of the film industry populate said list, which was reportedly compiled so that Weinstein could formulate a plan to keep his accusers from making their claims public. It was not successful.

Rose McGowan is on the list, as are fellow accusers Laura Madden, Sophie Dix, and Annabella Sciorra; curiously, the Guardian points out, Brett Ratner’s name appears as well.
