Lifetime's 'The Grim Sleeper': Now that's how you make a Lifetime movie

15 March 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

We settled in for "The Grim Sleeper" on Lifetime with a full intent of writing a snarky post about the best lines and most absurd moments. Turns out this is not one of those Lifetime movies, like "She Woke Up Pregnant" or "My Stepson, My Lover."

"The Grim Sleeper" is about a real serial killer who terrorized South-Central Los Angeles from 1985 until 2010, making him the longest active serial killer west of the Mississippi River.

The Sleeper's original reign of terror spanned 1985-88, when the Lapd dubbed him the .25-caliber Killer. He then took a 14-year break and resumed killing in 2002. Once the killings started again, La Weekly fact-checker Christine Pelisek set out to investigate the new murders and discovered their links to the crimes from roughly 15 years prior.

Dreama Walker played Pelisek in the Lifetime movie, which dramatized Pelisek's dogged investigation into the crimes, which is what got the killings »

The Definitive Kubrickian Films: 40-31

4 March 2014 9:28 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As we spend a month looking at the great Stanley Kubrick, we can also look at the filmmakers who were clearly influenced by Kubrick. “Kubrickian” films tend to exercise incredible control of the camera, are extremely ambitious, tend to deal with much weightier themes, and always maintain a sense of mystery, like a there’s an invisible fog always hovering over the film. This list could be sharply focused on about five directors working today but, though a number of these filmmakers appear in this list of 40, we’re spreading the wealth a bit. Let’s get to it.

40. Watchmen (2009)

Directed by Zack Snyder

What makes it Kubrickian? It’s surprisingly cold and detail-oriented, unlike most of Zack Snyder’s other work (well, detail-oriented in a positive way). Watchmen is based on the acclaimed graphic novel of the same name by David Gibbons and Alan Moore, about a desolate alternative »

Wet Behind the Ears: Alaimo’s Suburban Malaise a Standard Procedure

We’ve come to expect a certain amount of functional dysfunction to be featured in independent films depicting the decomposition of nuclear American families all tuckered out by their dogged insistence on living out the illusion of a proscribed way of existence. You can count Jay Alaimo’s latest film, Chlorine, as an overly familiar example of hitting all the customary checkmarks, including a more pressing and dramatic back story used to tie its disparate characters together.

Issues of class and how we’re conditioned to always hunt for loopholes to score upgrades seems to be an overarching theme but between a handful of moments where Alaimo is trying too hard to score pathos or convey information, the film is a stagnant, emotional plateau, managing only to ingrain us with an apathetic attitude towards its characters.

Exclusive: Elisabeth Röhm & Kyra Sedgwick Are Shopping And Investing In Clip From 'Chlorine'

26 February 2014 7:02 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Greed and hubris is the fabric that spins many stories—just see this year's Best Picture nominees "The Wolf Of Wall Street" and "American Hustle"—with those two qualities serving as the dark undercurrent of ambition. They make for intriguing stories, and co-writer/director Jay Alaimo has one cooking in the upcoming "Chlorine." Starring Vincent D’Onofrio, Kyra Sedgwick, Elisabeth Röhm, Dreama Walker and Tom Sizemore, the story follows Georgie Lent, who pushes her husband Roger into finding a way to invest in the market bubble in the hopes that their family can be saved with the money they are sure to make. When local tennis pro and part-time drug dealer, Pat, comes to Roger for investment advice, Roger sees his opportunity. Torn by the reality that his family could be saved by this dirty money, Roger finds himself staring down the barrel of a moral conundrum. And in this exclusive clip, »
