Aimlessly Devoted To You: Reeder Culls More Stars and Less Sense for Sophomore Film
More proof that horror as a genre has been hedged out of midnight movie programming in favor of meandering strangeness is The Rambler, the sophomore feature of Calvin Lee Reeder. Rather than expanding on the mindf*ck bizarro-world shtick that characterized his polarizing 2011 debut, The Oregonian, Reeder seems more eager than ever to agitate, confound, and blow through our conditioned notions of film narrative. Fans of his first film can rejoice, but the rest of us should be praying for the return of David Lynch. Films by directors such as Reeder, who is obviously influenced by the likes of the grand master himself, only highlight how genius someone like Lynch is at making the grisly and bizarre as compelling as it is incomprehensible.

Netflix is on a roll and they're not planning on letting up anytime soon. Following the release of "House of Cards," "Hemlock Grove" and the much-anticipated fourth season of "Arrested Development," the website is readying the release of their next original series, "Orange is the New Black."
A dramedy from "Weeds" creator Jenji Kohan, "Orange" is based on the same-named memoir from Piper Kerman, telling the story of a well-off white woman who finds herself in a women's prison after a 10-year-old charge for running drug money comes back to haunt her.
Taylor Schilling ("Mercy") stars as Piper, alongside Jason Biggs ("American Pie") as her fiance and Laura Prepon ("That '70s Show") as the drug dealer who got her into trouble all those years ago. The cast is rounded out by Kate Mulgrew, Natasha Lyonne and Taryn Manning.
The entire season will be released all at once on July 11. Check »

Poaching Wars With Tom Hardy
- Garth Franklin
It doesn't quite have the buzz of Arrested Development (does anything?) or the fancy-pants cachet of House of Cards, but Netflix has another show coming out, and it looks pretty good. Orange Is the New Black, based on Piper Kerman's memoir about going to prison for money laundering, stars Taylor Schilling as the incarcerated blonde. Jason Biggs plays her husband, That '70s Show's Laura Prepon plays a drug-smuggling lesbian, and best of all, Natasha Lyonne plays one of Piper's cellmates. Oitnb comes from Weeds' mastermind Jenji Kohan, which explains some of the panicky-white-girl zingers as well as the affection for Rilo Kiley. »

The first trailer for Netflix’s upcoming comedy series Orange Is the New Black has been released online. From Weeds creator Jenji Kohan, the show stars Taylor Schilling as a Brooklynite whose decade-old relationship with a drug-runner (Laura Prepon) lands her in a federal penitentiary. The show is based on the memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman, and this debut trailer is incredibly promising. The perfect blend of dark comedy and drama that Kohan displayed in the early seasons of Weeds is on full display here, as we see Schilling’s character adjusting to her new life in prison. I’m encouraged by the fact that Kohan doesn’t go for the easy “rich white lady in jail” jokes, and instead displays a sharp wit with a surprising amount of heart. Moreover, it’s nice to see a female-driven TV series that doesn’t revolve around the protagonist’s relationship with men. »

It isn’t often you get to utter the words, “Hey, I’ve stood in that women’s prison shower!” But that’s exactly what I said while watching the trailer for the Netflix dramedy Orange Is The New Black, whose set in Queens, NY, I visited earlier this year.
Based on Piper Kerman’s 2010 prison memoir of the same name the show was cocreated by Jenji Kohan, of Weeds fame, and stars Taylor Schilling, Jason Biggs, Laura Prepon, Kate Mulgrew, and Natasha Lyonne.
Netflix will release the entire 13-episode debut season on July 11, but you can check out the »

Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, a failed New York playwright awkwardly navigating the transition from Next Big Thing to Last Year's News. After both her career and relationship hit the skids, she's forced to make the humiliating move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric mother and younger brother (Annette Bening and Christopher Fitzgerald).

Girl Most Likely comes to theaters July 19th, »
Summer has been historically a “dead zone” for TV. Big networks use the season to clean the shelves of canceled series, air re-runs and give lowly supported pilots a feeble attempt to sink or swim. But savvy TV viewers know that this is also the time when smart networks like USA, AMC, Showtime, FX and BBC America launch shows that fly under the radar and take advantage of the dog-eat-dog fall and winter seasons. We’ve considered all of the new shows in the summer of 2013 and come up with the 10 best entries that will consume our summer nights:
Premiering: 13-episodes available starting July 11 on Netflix
