Masters of Sex Season 3 Finale Recap: Arrested Development

27 September 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Talk about uneven! In its third season, the ordinarily extraordinary Masters of Sex careened between the sublime (“Party of Four”) and the ridiculous (the less said about “Monkey Business,” the better). But at least in its season finale, the Showtime drama wasn’t, er, messing around. Not only did the hour deliver the Bill/Libby showdown we’ve long craved, it also marked a major turning point in Bill and Virginia’s on-again/off-again relationship. How major? Read on…

Chimps gripped by homemade King Kong movie, finds Japanese study

21 September 2015 2:22 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A new study has discovered that chimpanzees are not only hooked by clip of ape attacking human, but on rewatch remember where weapons are stashed

Related: Monkey business: primates on film

It is not the most accomplished sweded version of King Kong: a man dressed in a furry suit (trainers still visible) mimics an ape breaking out of a cage and then attacking a human. The victim then – spoiler alert – fetches a small red hammer and batters his assailant.

Review: 'Masters of Sex' Season 3, Episode 8 'Surrogates': Replacement Therapies

30 August 2015 8:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Previously: Review: 'Masters of Sex' Season 3, Episode 7, 'Monkey Business': No Use to Man or Beast The Syllabus Tonight's episode of "Masters of Sex" begins with two sleights of hand. As Virginia (Lizzy Caplan) feigns flu to secure a few days in Las Vegas with Dan Logan (Josh Charles), Bill (Michael Sheen) expresses concern with an eye to launching the clinic's sex surrogacy program, despite her objections. It's a moment of mutual dissembling that suggests, with far more subtlety than last week's dreadful "Monkey Business," the gulf that's opened between Bill and Virginia this season -- and the steps each has taken to fill it. In medicine, replacement therapies attack absence -- of clotting factors in the hemophiliac, of nicotine in the smoker attempting to quit, of estrogen and progesterone in the menopausal woman. In "Surrogates," an hour of substitutes and stand-ins that runs much deeper than the physiological, »

Review: 'Masters of Sex' Season 3, Episode 7, 'Monkey Business': No Use to Man or Beast

23 August 2015 8:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Previously: 'Masters of Sex' Season 3, Episode 6: The Trial and Error of 'Two Scents' The Syllabus In Howard Hawks' antic comedy, "Monkey Business" (1952), buttoned-up chemist Barnaby Fulton (Cary Grant) ingests an elixir of youth and spends a freewheeling afternoon with buxom secretary Lois Laurel (Marilyn Monroe). The experience, he relates later, is one of "maladjustment, idiocy and a series of low-comedy disasters," but this screwball spirit unfortunately fails to translate to tonight's "Masters of Sex." Culminating with a scene in which Bill Masters (Michael Sheen) aims his recent cruelty at erstwhile partner Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), the episode fails to make hay from its droll premise, preferring instead a bewildering blend of squeamish humor, strange secrets, and slight camp. "Monkey Business" may be designed as a mischievous double entendre, but it blares its tired understanding of the battle of »

22 June 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Former child actor George Winslow has died at the age of 69.

Born George Karl Wentzlaff, Winslow was best known for playing Marilyn Monroe's young admirer in 1953's Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and featured in other classic films of the era.

His longtime friend confirmed to the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat that he died of a heart attack on June 13 at his Northern California home.

Under the stage name George 'Foghorn' Winslow, he became known for his raspy voice and deadpan delivery, and landed roles opposite the likes of Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers.

His roles also included Monkey Business with Grant, and leading roles in My Pal Gus and The Rocket Man.

He retired from acting at the age of 12, before serving in the Navy during the Vietnam War. He retired from the Postal Service several years ago.

Kael Vs. Kane: Pauline Kael, Orson Welles and the Authorship of Citizen Kane

10 May 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Part I.

In 1963, Film Quarterly published an essay entitled “Circles and Squares.” It addressed the French auteur theory, introduced to America by The Village Voice’s Andrew Sarris. Auteurism holds that a film’s primary creator is its director; Sarris’s “Notes on the Auteur Theory” further distinguished auteurs as filmmakers with distinct, recurring styles. Challenging him was a California-based writer named Pauline Kael.

Kael attacked Sarris’s obsession with trivial links between filmmaker’s movies, whether repeated shots or thematic preoccupations. This led critics to overpraise directors’ lesser films, as when Jacques Rivette declared Howard HawksMonkey Business a masterpiece. “It is an insult to an artist to praise his bad work along with his good; it indicates that you are incapable of judging either,” Kael wrote.

She criticized auteurist preoccupation with Hawks and Alfred Hitchcock, claiming critics “work embarrassingly hard trying to give some semblance of intellectual respectability to mindless, »

Monkey Business: 10 Best Movie Primates

22 April 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Animals have always been a source of entertainment for us humans, and few more so than the monkey. Is it fascination with our evolutionary heritage that makes monkeys such a frequent source of interest, or are they just irresistibly adorable? It’s likely some combination of the two, but their intelligence not only makes them curious companions; they’re camera-friendly ones. The latest documentary effort from Disneynature, Monkey Kingdom, opened in theaters last weekend and gave us an intimate view of primates in their natural habitat. The film subsequently inspired yours truly to consider the history of monkeys in the movies, and it turns out it’s quite vast. From the goofy to the loving to the scary, monkeys have been a part of cinema for most of its existence, and subsequently there are plenty of memorable “monkey movie stars” to consider. Without further ado, I present the definitive, absolute, »
