Chris Cummins Nov 16, 2017

A timely episode of Riverdale mixes the serious with the supremely goofy. Spoilers ahead in our review...

This review contains spoilers.

2.6 Death Proof

Tonight's episode began with another obvious yet still true observation from Jughead - that we often wear masks that cover who we really are. Although this episode was written and filmed before the Harvey Weinstein/Louis Ck/et al stories broke, its impossible to view it outside of the context of that news cycle and how it gave rise to the #metoo movement. There's a lot going on in this week's episode but the most important element here is far and away the Cheryl/Nick/Veronica storyline. Last week we saw Nick St. Clair go transform from New York City-based textbook case of Affluenza to monstrous would-be rapist.

Scott Hamilton Awaits Update on Third Brain Tumor to See If It Has Grown: 'It Will Be Fine No Matter What'

  • PEOPLE.com
In a month, Scott Hamilton will learn whether the tumor lurking in his brain has grown, or whether the “little critter” – as the ice skater wryly calls it — is “behaving itself.” Waiting for such news could easily keep a guy up at night, but for the Olympic champ it’s almost an afterthought.

After all, between preparing for the 2018 Winter Olympics broadcast, getting ready for a book launch (his third book, Finish First: Winning Changes Everything, is out Feb. 6) and organizing an annual cancer benefit in Nashville this month, “I’ve got too much to do every day to worry,

Talking ‘Mindhack’ with Director Royce Gorsuch

Interview with Director Royce Gorsuch for Mindhack

Mindhack screened earlier this year at Frightfest. The film offered a respite from the typical horror offerings, adding a science-fiction spice to the festival. Originally known as Mad Genius, Mindhack joins computer genius Mason (Chris Mason) as he researches into hacking the human brain. His end goal – to unite the world, eliminate war and create peace for all mankind. It’s a quirky story, brought to life by writer / director Royce Gorsuch.

Gorsuch had been making a living as a director for several years, his body of work mostly based within the advertising world. With Mindhack he decided to branch out from the naturalistic day job of commercials into the hyper-stylised world of cyberpunk. Royce has long been a fan of the movement and cites William Gibson’s Neuromancer as one of his favourite novels. We caught-up with the new feature filmmaker at

The Coldplay frontman has already filmed his spot for Nov. 29 episode, appropriately dubbed "Brushes With Celebrity." And while he will be playing himself, sources close to the show stress that it's not just a cameo. He's getting a beefy role.

International Newswire: Netflix Leads Streaming Pack in Oz
In today’s International Newswire, Netflix is top dog among streaming platforms in Australia; Studio Hamburg launches Paradise Papers documentary; ‘The Divine Order’ opens Zagreb Film Festival; and South Africa’s M-Net 101 picks up “Dancing with the Stars.”

In a new report on subscription VOD in Australia, London-based research group Ampere Analysis found that Netflix is the top Svod service in the country, followed by Stan and Foxtel Now. Ampere estimates that the number of hours of TV and movies available on Netflix has nearly tripled in the last three years, addressing early concerns about the strength of its offer. Australia is one of Netflix’s strongest markets in terms of the size of its catalog. While Svod is extremely popular in Australia and has made significant inroads, pay-tv service growth has stalled – 51% of Australian internet users have at least one Svod subscription versus 35% taking pay-tv.

Guest Post: How to Stay Open to Collaboration When Your Film is Deeply Personal

Gold Star

Guest Post by Victoria Negri

My debut feature film “Gold Star” is loosely inspired by my experiences as one of my father’s caregivers in the last year of his life following an intense stroke. And because of how personal this film is, and how many hats I chose to wear for the production as writer, director, producer, and lead actor, it was imperative that I bring in the best possible collaborators to offer new and thoughtful perspectives.

Gold Star” evolved so much over pre-production, during the production process and in post, and I credit my collaborators for challenging my vision, questioning my choices, and making the suggestions necessary to transform the movie from one chronicling a fictionalized version of my own specific life experience into something more universally relatable.

The first person I brought onto the project, producer Katie Maguire, helped me understand that I did not need to be wedded to the biographical details and it would be Ok to change the character of Vicki and her story in the movie to the point where she could deviate from my own experience. Through the process of working on drafts of the script, she helped me focus on what to heighten and what to cut, and she helped immeasurably in the process of turning the narrative of a specific woman faced with a specific burden in a particular time and place into something bigger: the complex challenges of caregiving and carving out a distinct identity for yourself in the midst of losing your parent.

It was terrifying to open myself up to other perspectives, but I knew I’d need them, especially during the shoot itself. Cinematographer Saro Varjabedian and associate producer Greg White helped me through extraordinarily difficult, emotional scenes, some of which incorporated my real father’s hospital equipment, others that were shot in the rehab hospital that cared for him after his stroke, and still others that used real articles of clothing and props from his life.

Here’s just one example of many: During one challenging day on set in September, 2014, I had to lift Robert Vaughn, who plays my father in the film), into a bed using a Hoyer lift. Because this was something I did in real life for my father just one time, and felt ill-equipped to do it even then, essentially reliving the experience was becoming increasingly stressful take after take. After about an hour or two of shooting, I spoke with Greg and Saro and we decided that after we finished an angle and wrapped my close-up, we would take lunch and move to Robert’s close-up to break it up for me and give me a chance to process what I had been doing.

Catherine Curtin, who plays my mother in the movie, also had an enormous impact. She suggested a major change to a scene’s blocking that ended up being one of my favorite scenes in the film. I opened up a lot of myself personally in private to Cathy and Robert, speaking with them individually about why scenes mattered beyond the dialogue or merely filling in the blanks in the story. The scene between Cathy and I was crucial to the film, as it’s a moment in which the roles of mother and daughter are abolished. Cathy and myself, as characters in the film, became equals, both in denial and fear of losing a loved one.

After wrapping the production and moving into editing, this same ethos applied. Working with my editor Chris Steele-Nicholson was an exercise in further staying open to changes in the film. There were many personal, emotional moments for me that didn’t necessarily work once we were watching the edit, and in going through the footage with Chris and hearing his thoughts on the film, and specifically what kind of film we were making, I had some huge epiphanies.

The final film you will see is far from what was on the page. The beginning and ending are completely different than what I initially conceived. They’re ideas that came through conversations, talking about other films, relaxing and staying open, and most importantly, trusting my collaborators and giving them room to offer their input.

Gold Star” screens at Cinema Village in New York City November 10–16 and begins streaming on Amazon and Amazon Prime on November 10. For additional theatrical dates and more information, visit the film’s official website.

Victoria Negri is an award-winning writer, director, producer, and actress. “Gold Star” is her feature directorial debut. The film won the Audience Award at the Buffalo International Film Festival and Blue Whiskey Film Festival (Chicago), as well as Best Feature Film at the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival. Negri has directed and produced numerous award-winning short films, music videos, and web series featured at festivals around the world, including the Lower East Side Film Festival, Nashville Film Festival, Cleveland Film Festival, and Nitehawk Shorts Festival.

Horror Short November 1st Explores Life After Halloween For Michael Myers

The build-up to Halloween is always a magical time for horror fans – fireworks light up the night-sky; theaters are screening the latest and (sometimes) greatest genre hits; long-running TV shows like The Simpsons and Brooklyn Nine-Nine release spooky specials; and there is often enough candy to trigger the beginning of a festive food coma.

If, like us though, you’re feeling a little deflated now that the Halloween celebrations are over for another year, spare a thought for Michael Myers. The time-honored movie villain is synonymous with the annual holiday, and though he (it?) has been absent from our screens for far too long, 2018 will signal the return of Myers thanks to David Gordon Green’s reinvention.

But in keeping with the spirit of Halloween – or, rather, what’s left of it – the folks over at Fright Rags (via Bloody Disgusting) have pieced together a wonderful horror short that explores
