4 hours ago

On Wednesday, Minnesota police released further video from the July, 2016 shooting of Philando Castile that sheds heartbreaking light on what Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her 4-year old daughter were going through in the moments immediately following his death. The footage, from the back seat of a patrol car, shows Reynold’s daughter begging her mother to stop screaming out of fear that she might end up killed by police. “Mom, please stop saying cuss words and screaming because I don’t want you to get shooted,” the girl can be heard pleading.

Johnny Depp on Trump: ‘When Was the Last Time an Actor Assassinated a President?’ (Video)

5 hours ago

During an appearance Thursday at the annual Glastonbury music and arts festival in Southern England, Johnny Depp had some harsh words for Donald Trump — and along with them a historical joke even he realized might end up backfiring on him: “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” Depp’s joke is of course a reference to John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of President Abraham Lincoln who was an actor, from a famous family of actors. Depp made the comments while introducing “The Libertine,” his 2004 film directed by Laurence Dunmore, as part of the festival’s film component. »

Emmys: Jay Duplass on Groundbreaking ‘Transparent’ Love Scene, Josh Pfefferman’s Spiral

9 hours ago

The Pfefferman Family, of Amazon’s “Transparent,” are a beautiful bunch of self-actualizing snowflakes. Or, more simply said, a complex and rewarding ensemble that makes it hard to choose a favorite child. If you pushed us, however, we’d say season three belongs to Jay Duplass’ Josh Pfefferman. A “roving male id” according to creator Jill Soloway, Duplass draws a charismatic but troubled cisgender male in a family of powerful queer and trans women who dings his head on every rung of the ladder as he’s sliding down in his personal life and relationships.

Here’s Why ‘Authenticity’ Is the Buzzword of Choice at This Year’s VidCon

10 hours ago

As more kids shun traditional media platforms in favor of online video, advertisers are scrambling for the best way to leverage digital media creators to market their products. This challenge has led brands to a near obsession with the top buzzword of VidCon 2017 — “authenticity.” Spend more than five minutes with anyone involved in online content, and you’re bound to hear it. Its importance is somewhat obvious: Brands don’t want it to seem like their partners are complete shills for their product. If a creator can seem genuinely invested in what they’re hocking, it’s marketing gold. Also »

‘1984’ Broadway Review: Big Brother Is Back and He’s Out to Shock Us Senseless

10 hours ago

George Orwell’s “1984” returned to the best-seller lists earlier this year on the eve of Donald Trump’s inauguration as president of the United States. But Robert Icke and Duncan MacMillan’s new stage adaptation, first staged in the U.K. in 2013 and opening on Broadway Thursday, remains joltingly timely even without a direct nod to current events. (And no, this production’s Big Brother does not wear a blond wig.) Icke and MacMillan, who also direct, take a somewhat unorthodox, postmodern approach to Orwell’s story, framing it around a discussion of the authenticity of the text itself. This seems to be lifted. »
