Katherine Waterston Breaks Through in Inherent Vice

6 hours ago

Inherent Vice takes us through the drug fueled labyrinth that is seventies ‘70s, a la Thomas Pynchon. Paul Thomas Anderson interprets that world’s chiaroscuro uncertainty as muddled, hazy and oblique, which describes the action from time to time.  But it’s the unique characters that make it work. Joaquin Phoenix is a barely coherent private eye looking for a woman he used to know.  Josh Brolin is a stuttering mess, fixated on bananas,  Lapd, who’s after the same woman.  And she is Shasta Fay Hepworth, a waif, a wanderer and a curse apparently. Katherine Waterston, the daughter of the great Sam […] »

22 December 2014 9:26 AM, PST

I have been reluctant to speak up. The whole Ferguson nightmare, and Eric Garner disaster in its wake, have caused our country to become so divided that I am afraid to say what I’m thinking anymore. Don’t misunderstand, I haven’t been silent. I am a cop wife and I’ve succumbed to the urge to share and retweet messages in support of police officers lately. But Saturday night’s assassination of two righteous officers of the New York Police Department as they sat in their police car helping to protect a troubled neighborhood takes it all just too far.This is not a […] »

Timothy Spall on Mr. Turner – Fascinating Men

22 December 2014 4:49 AM, PST

J.M.W. Turner (1775 – 11851), the English romantic landscape artist was a genius and an imperfect soul. His glorious paintings, watercolours that suggested the later Impressionist movement mostly captured sea and landscapes in moments of upheaval and brilliant colours. They indicate his wonder and awe at the natural world, and they also reveal a man in turmoil. Timothy Spall brings Turner to life – the artist, the eccentric and loner with two separate, concurrent families, a tragic family history and deeply ingrained need for privacy. We spoke with Spall in Toronto beginning with the way Turner’s physical nature helped Spall […] »
