Aubrey was able to live out his dream as he and the team tried to catch a jewel thief on Bones Season 11 Episode 21.
The theme made for a fun hour of movie references including everything from Brennan being oblivious to Hodgins’ Pink Panther impersonations to Booth telling Aubrey he’s nothing like Cary Grant from To Catch a Thief. Ouch!

The Gentleman Thieves turned out to be a lady and one gentleman thief who was a two-time murderer.
Can you be a gentleman and a murderer at the same time?
I didn’t think that Chadwick Grey and Henri had the exact same build, especially since Henri was played by Gilles Marini, but I suppose that since I have no personal, hands on experience, I’ll have to take their word on that.
I was afraid that Inspector Rousseau was going to be nothing more »

Forget the diamond at the center of Bones‘ latest murder plot. The real gem in Thursday’s episode is Booth in his glasses!

The G-man is experiencing some vision troubles — “You’re beginning to look like a squint,” Aubrey notes, much to Booth’s displeasure — but he stubbornly refuses to accept the severity of his condition. It takes misreading a case file as being in French for him to finally see a doctor. Brennan is a fan of the new frames, while her hubby thinks »
To Catch a Thief (1955) is minor Hitchcock. Let's get that out of the way. But even minor works by an indisputed master can look awfully major when you stack them next to regular ol' films which is why we keep hitting Hitchcock in this series. There's a clickbait article going around (no I'm not linking) that argues that The Shallows (Blake Lively vs shark) is a better film than The Birds (Tippi Hedren vs, well, birds). Which is crazy talk but film twitter always always takes the bait.
True story: the last two films I screened were The Shallows (2016) and To Catch a Thief (1953) and I would have never thought to pair them until this silly shark vs birds kerfuffle which erupted immediately after I had just seen both of the movies. Truth bomb: The Shallows is a really good "B" movie (I don't mean grade, but yes: B) but it's awfully slight. »

The Hamptons International Film Festival SummerDocs series has set a 2016 lineup that includes “Author: The Jt Leroy Story,” “Betting on Zero” and “A Perfect Candidate.” The series will also feature co-chairman Alec Baldwin and the festival’s artistic director, David Nugent, leading conversations with filmmakers and guests. Screenings will take place at Guild Hall in East Hampton.
Amazon Studios picked up A&E IndieFilm’s literary scandal documentary “Author” out of Sundance earlier this year. “Betting on Zero,” about a crusade against alleged pyramid scheme Herbalife, premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, while R.J. Cutler and David Van Taylor’s look at Oliver North, “A Perfect Candidate,” was first released in 1996.
“The SummerDocs series has become one of the most anticipated and respected film events in the New York and Hamptons summer calendar,” said Baldwin. “We are proud to once again screen some of the best in documentary filmmaking to our audiences and provide an insightful look into the process in conversations with leading filmmakers.”
The festival’s Student Summer Filmmaking workshops are also open for enrollment and will also be held at Guild Hall July 18-22 and July 25-29. The festival is also partnering with Southampton Arts Center and offering free movie screenings through the summer, which include “National Lampoon’s Vacation,” “Surf’s Up,” Rocky,” “The Candidate,” “The Shining,” “To Catch a Thief,” “Tootsie” and “Jaws.”
The Hamptons International Film Festival runs from Oct 6-10.

Many films by this prolific German auteur are frustratingly hard to access but this classic, featuring an all female cast and centering around a fashion designer is relatively easy to get so let's do it! Cinematography by Michael Ballhaus, who really needs to be given an Honorary Oscar immediately. He's 80 years old, still with us, and shot so many great American and German classics.

At first glance the words “To Catch a…” might make you think you’ve stumbled onto a review of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1955 thriller classic To Catch a Thief. Or maybe a few of you assume this is a piece about Chris… Continue Reading →

If there is a reliable truism that can coexist alongside the American film industry’s dance of death with economically insane budgets that now routinely soar north of $200 million, it is that (most) critics and potential ticket-buyers can be counted on to review bad buzz and publicized woes of dollars and production instead of the actual movie once it finally finds its way to a screen. And it may in fact be true that the drama behind the scenes often outstrips the quality of the wide-screen finished product, though certainly this is not always the case. The reception of big-budget box-office flops like John Carter, The Lone Ranger, Jupiter Ascending and Oliver Stone’s Alexander are but some late examples of our number-crunching obsession with pop culture minutiae and the fascination of a behemoth’s preordained fall. Most who trudged out to see any of these films during their theatrical »

Of the first three episodes of Bones' 11th spring stretch, "The Monster in the Closet" is by far my favorite. The suspense is fantastic as is the aesthetic and the weaving of the story. You'll see Hitchcock influences, but in every way different from the romanticism and fun of the To Catch a Thief aesthetic emulated in last season's period piece, "The 200th in the 10th."
"The Monster in the Closet" is light on gore, but rife with adrenaline-pumping suspense. Make sure you pay attention to Brennan's psychological experience as the case unfolds as well. Without giving too much away, I've compiled a list of the top nine reasons this compelling episode is the best so far this spring.

It was the most glamorous wedding of its era - and six decades later, the marriage of Oscar winning-actress Grace Kelly and Monaco's Prince Rainier remains one of the most fairy-tale weddings of all time. In private family photos obtained by People and kept in the palace in Monaco, the timeless magic of April 18, 1956 can be seen both publicly and behind the scenes. "It was such an incredible affair, and it's left such a mark on people," the couple's only son and heir, Prince Albert, tells People. "What it has meant for people has been incredible. For us, it was »
