Abortion on TV: Three Ways Show Creators Got to Tell Abortion Stories on Their Own Terms

12 May 2017 2:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 2016, three abortion stories told on TV caught the attention of critics. The plots on “Jane the Virgin,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and “You’re the Worst” all normalized abortion as a natural part of women’s health. All of these stories, however, occurred pre-Trump.

While the debate over women’s reproductive rights never went away, the topic is back in the spotlight as a new health care bill seeks to treat pregnancies and rape as pre-existing conditions and Texas legislators seek to pass anti-abortion bills. Over on Hulu, “The Handmaid’s Tale” is looking less and less like fiction.

21 of cinema’s worst elevators

20 March 2017 8:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Mar 31, 2017

From The Shining to I Origins, these are just some of the worst offenders when it comes to moving between floors...

This article contains spoilers for just about every film on its list.

I don’t know when it started exactly.

When I was very young, it was fine. I maybe even enjoyed getting on an elevator and being whisked off, but somewhere in the timeline of my life, something changed. I began to dread stepping onto one. My heart would pound, a cold sweat would creep down my neck and my breath would quicken.

“What’s wrong?” a bemused acquaintance would ask as we were about to embark.

“Oh! Nothing, really,” I’d respond as casually as I could for someone suddenly about to lose control of their bowels. “I just thought I might take the stairs. Bit of exercise, you know.”

By Sidney Lumet

A lengthy talk-fest interview of the underrated filmmaker, who takes us through his life story as a personal journey, not a string of movie assignments. Sidney Lumet seems to attract a lot of criticism, and so did this docu for not challenging his opinions or rubbing his nose in his less admirable movie efforts. The docu is just Lumet’s thoughts, and the words of a man of integrity are always inspiring.
