Kylie Jenner Kicks Off Memorial Day Weekend With Sexy Bikini Tops and Soaking Wet Jeans—Take a Look!
Way to kick off summer in style Kylie Jenner! While some may have started their Memorial Day weekend with some serious shopping or a trip to the beach, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star opted for another sexy photo shoot by a luxurious pool. In a series of photos shot by Los Angeles-based photographer Neave Bozorgi, the 17-year-old headed straight to the Jacuzzi wearing a black bikini top and bottom. But in an added twist, the fashion designer kept her ripped denim jeans on as she rested her feet and legs in the cool, crisp water. "@sir_neave @monicarosestyle @joycebonelli make magic," Kylie wrote on Instagram while posing with bold sunglasses. This isn't the first time the »
Cannes Film Review: ‘Masaan’
Anurag Kashyap’s assistant on “Gangs of Wasseypur” delivers a muddled feature debut with the narratively challenged “Masaan,” a heartfelt yet overambitious tale of class and gender inequality in contempo India. Set on the Ganges in the holy city of Benares, the pic (alternately titled “Fly Away Solo”) attempts to weave together two separate stories of people struggling to overcome societal pressures, but helmer Neeraj Ghaywan hasn’t found ways to overcome script and editing weaknesses, resulting in a disappointing drama that’s unable to realize the potential of the one truly interesting character. “Masaan” may fill a few slots at fests looking for indie Indie fare, though French co-production coin is unlikely to result in more than a limited Gallic release.
The pity is that Devi (Richa Chadda) is a fascinating figure who’d be far better served with a film of her own. She’s a university student, »

Let's look back at 'SNL' season 40: The top 15 sketches
No show produces more divisive critical response than “Saturday Night Live.” And that makes sense: Comedy is subjective, and nowhere on television does that more apply than “SNL,” where one person’s sketch of the night is another viewer’s worst sketch of the year. So a list like this isn’t meant as a definitive statement but rather one personal point of view. That’s both an obvious and necessary distinction to make. No sketches were unintentionally omitted. I went back, looked at every sketch I graded, adjusted in-the-moment rankings accordingly and came up with 15 great sketches in what I personally saw as the show’s greatest season in the five years I’ve covered it here at HitFix. Honorable Mentions: “Swiftamine” (Chris Rock), “Graveyard Song” (Jim Carrey), “Nest-Spresso” (Cameron Diaz), “Overly Full Brain” (James Franco) Tostinos Activity Pack For Women (Jk Simmons) Click through the gallery below to »

Cannes: Will ‘The Assassin’ Slay the Competition?
Given the number of films in competition (19), the correspondingly infinite number of possible award/talent configurations, and the sheer impossibility of guessing at the individual and collective tastes of nine jurors, predicting the major award winners at the Cannes Film Festival is obviously a fool’s errand — and one that our critics on the Croisette have gladly undertaken.
Palme d’Or: “The Assassin.” Word on the street — and among British bookies — is that my own favorite film of the fest, Yorgos Lanthimos’ high-wire relationship fantasy “The Lobster,” is the one to beat, though whether that’s based on honest hearsay or a projection of the Coen brothers’ taste for dryer-than-dust comedy, I can’t say. As much as it would thrill me to see such a singular combination of concept-y formalism and perverse heart-tugging take the prize, I have a hard time seeing it as the unifying consensus »

Eurovision Song Contest: Sweden Beats Out Russia
Sweden won its sixth Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday night, as Mans Zelmerlow, with his pop song "Heroes," beat out Russia's Polina Gagarina, who performed an English-language song called "A Million Voices." Zelmerlow's performance during the event's 60th anniversary edition in Vienna, Austria included animated visuals. Austria hosted the event, under the motto "Building Bridges" after drag queen Conchita Wurst won last year's competition. Overall, a record 27 countries participated in the finals. Among them was Australia, which was invited to compete, despite being nowhere near Europe. The country had in the past asked if it could participate,

De Niro to Nyu Graduates: \"You're F*cked\"
Most of Robert De Niro's iconic roles are foul-mouthed, often murderous men, and last week De Niro seized an opportunity to channel a bit of that attitude into his keynote speech to this year's graduating class at Nyu's Tisch School of the Arts. You can watch it here. "A new door is opening for you — a door to a lifetime of rejection. It's inevitable," he said, telling students that they have to keep working and keep fighting if they want to have a career in the arts. Considering the amount of money Tisch students and their parents drop on their education, the Oscar winner's words may have felt a bit too caustic. But De Niro, with the best intentions and an acerbic sense of humor, told students what they probably needed to hear: There will be times when your best isn't good enough. There can be many reasons for »
