Review: 'Better Call Saul' - 'Rico': A night at the opera

23 March 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Better Call Saul" coming up just as soon as I use double ply... There is a truth inherent to the prequel business: you can't change or prevent what your audience knows is coming for these characters. Sometimes, prequels use this to their advantage, whether great ones (where the young Vito scenes in "Godfather Part II" only enhance our feelings for the Brando version of the character), or less-great ones (where whatever emotional power the "Star Wars" prequels have comes from the knowledge of what's going to become of Anakin). Sometimes, though, having to stick to pre-established facts about your characters' future can be a drag, as we're seeing a lot this season on "Gotham."(*) (*) Another good example of prequelitis: "Comanche Moon," the last "Lonesome Dove" novel to be published, but set before the events of the first, has our heroes chasing after a bad guy the »

Body Talk: Marquardt’s Debut Treads Lightly Through Provocative Territory

Sexuality, prostitution, and that obscure object of desire are all tricky matters to convey cinematically. In written form, many humans are able to project their own fantasies onto the scenario they’re consuming, and thus, titillation may be more accessible. Throughout the past century of cinema, dominated by not only the male gaze, but predominantly the white, heterosexual male’s tastes as well, we’ve not had the opportunity to rightly weigh the perspectives of those who don’t identify as readily or at all with such materials. But we’ve been conditioned to see things one way, and thus Anja Marquardt’s directorial debut She’s Lost Control, which concerns the struggles of a sex surrogate, has a feeling of familiarity while also being thought provoking for its potency as an observational character study from a perspective unconcerned with morality, »

Moore Best Actress Oscar Helps 'Alice' But Not 'Maps': Box Office

1 March 2015 4:44 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Still Alice' and 'Maps to the Stars' box office: Julianne Moore Oscar helps only one movie (photo: Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore in 'Still Alice') (See previous post: "'The Lazarus Effect' Box Office: Olivia Wilde Horror Movie Arrives Comatose.") The Oscars do matter. As mentioned in the previous post, Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman was up an estimated 125 percent this weekend, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, following its four Academy Award wins – including Best Picture. Also up a hefty 24 percent – after adding 553 locations – is Sony Pictures Classics' Still Alice, which earned Julianne Moore the year's Best Actress Oscar for her performance as a woman in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. True, an Oscar win – or key nominations – may not create mammoth blockbusters like Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, Sam Taylor-Johnson's Fifty Shades of Grey, or Clint Eastwood's American Sniper.
