16 hours ago

The surviving members of Monty Python reminisce on the eve of their final performance in Monty Python: The Meaning of Live. Directors Roger Graef and James Rogan deliver exactly what one expects in the film — where a global simulcast offered fans the actual live show (the last of ten nights at London's O2 Arena) last year, this one contains just snippets of that event and focuses on everything preceding it. Diehard followers of the troupe will of course want to see it, however little it contributes to the lore; releasing it in theaters, though, would be a stretch. It

It's been four-and-a-half years since Salvatore Romano was last seen on Mad Men — unemployed and cruising for some down-low affection in a public park at the end of the third season. Actor Bryan Batt has not kept such a low profile. Recent years have seen him publish two books, appear in a slew of films (12 Years a Slave) and marry his longtime partner.
