“I Was Getting Hate Mail Before I Even Started Shooting”: Keith Gordon on The Singing Detective

12 August 2015 12:38 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Writer-director Keith Gordon had one of the best film schools imaginable in the late ’70s and early ’80s, when he broke into the business as an actor and appeared in several now classic movies including All That Jazz, Dressed to Kill, and Christine. He must have learned quite a bit watching the likes of Fosse, De Palma, and Carpenter direct, because his own filmography is one of the most consistent in all of contemporary American cinema. Gordon has directed five features to date, every single one of which is an uncompromised treasure – and each one is different from the […] »

Pretty Little Liars Sneak Peek: Aria Recovers from Charles' Latest Attack

22 July 2015 2:17 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

In the wake of Charles’ birthday disaster, Aria takes a moment to ponder where the girls’ plan went wrong. But here’s a better question: Why did she ever think it would go right?

“To be honest, I don’t really know what we were thinking,” she tells Clark in the above clip from Tuesday’s Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family, 8/7c). To be fair that statement could apply to pretty much every A-related plan the girls have had since the pilot. (Remember when Aria accidentally killed Shana? »

The Brood and Dressed To Kill Blu-ray Release Details & Cover Art

22 July 2015 11:49 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Fans of David Cronenberg and Brian De Palma are in for a treat this summer and fall, as The Criterion Collection will release the former's The Brood and the latter's Dressed to Kill on respective Blu-rays.

The Criterion Collection will release The Brood on Blu-ray October 13th and Dressed to Kill on Blu-ray August 18th:

From The Criterion Collection: The Brood: "A disturbed woman is receiving a radical form of psychotherapy at a remote, mysterious institute. Meanwhile, her five-year-old daughter, under the care of her estranged husband, is being terrorized by a group of demonic beings. How these two story lines connect is the shocking and grotesque secret of this bloody tale of monstrous parenthood from David Cronenberg, starring Oliver Reed and Samantha Eggar. With its combination of psychological and body horror, The Brood laid the groundwork for many of the director’s films to come, but it stands »

Pretty Little Liars Recap: Party Foul

21 July 2015 6:52 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

I’ve been thinking… if this whole ‘local terrorist’ thing doesn’t pan out, Charles Dilaurentis could forge a pretty sweet fallback career as a party planner.

VideosPretty Little Liars Sneak Peek: Aria Recovers from Charles’ Latest Attack

Alison’s presumed-dead brother threw himself a hell of a birthday bash on Tuesday’s Pretty Little Liars, complete with killer arcade games, an accidental drugging and a sting operation that had the girls waving their hands in the air like they just didn’t care. (Editor’s note: I suspect the girls did, in fact, care.)

Chasing Life's Krysta Rodriguez Teases Vanessa's Backstory, Says Playing a Character With Cancer Is 'Cathartic'

20 July 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Chasing Life‘s April Carver doesn’t know it yet, but newcomer Vanessa (played by Smash alumna Krysta Rodriguez) might just be her guardian angel in disguise.

Sure, Vanessa’s blunt manner of speaking seems off-putting at first, but as Rodriguez points out to TVLine: “Anytime Vanessa says something to April, it changes her entire life.

Criterion's August Slate Brings De Palma's 'Dressed To Kill,' The Dardennes' 'Two Days, One Night,' Truffaut's 'Day For Night' & More

18 May 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

August marks the fading days of summer, the last gasp of heat-soaked freedom before vacations are over and everyday responsibilities start taking over. But if you've got a few bucks left over from that summer job, or some money you didn't spend on holiday, Criterion's August lineup has some compelling reasons to part with it. Kicking things off, Brian De Palma's sizzler "Dressed To Kill" arrives on the label. It will boast a new high def transfer, all kinds of new interviews (actress Nancy Allen, producer George Litto, composer Pino Donaggio, shower-scene body double Victoria Lynn Johnson, and poster and photographic art director Stephen Sayadian), featurettes about the different versions of the movie that were cut to avoid an X rating, and much more. This looks like a treat for De Palma devotees (but let's hope they change that kinda dreadful cover art). As expected, the Dardennes' acclaimed "Two Days, »

Cher Has Insisted She’s “not dying”

14 May 2015 10:47 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cher has insisted she’s “not dying”.

The ‘Turn Back Time’ hitmaker was forced to cancel dates on her ‘Dressed to Kill’ concert last September after being diagnosed with a potentially fatal mystery virus, but she has now revealed she’s made a full recovery.

She said: “I’m feeling great.

“I’m not dying!”

The 68-year-old musician sparked worries when she was spotted wearing a cardiac monitor back in October, and a source close to the star has admitted the illness was frightening as it affected her heart.

The source explained: “She was really flattened by the infection — it affected her kidney function and threatened her heart.

“For the first time in her life, she learned how to slow down and methodically build up strength.”

The chart-topping icon – who has sons Chaz, 46, and Elijah, 38 – is now so satisfied with her recovery, she intends to head back out on the »

12 Stories of Sex in Museums

6 May 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Once upon a time, museums were very erotic spaces, ecstasy machines, places where people picked up or fantasized about people, went into deep out-of-body states of pleasure near one another, catching fleeting glimpses of strangers in reflections looking at one another, seeing and losing one another in galleries, then seeing one another again, always almost alone, always in this excited psychic space of rest, pleasure, and strange alienation.Old film directors knew this. In Vertigo, Hitchcock pictures Jimmy Stewart enraptured by Kim Novak as she looks longingly at a portrait of a woman who looks uncannily like her; Brian De Palma’s Dressed to Kill opens with a five-minute flirtation, pursuit, and meeting in the Met, all while in the presence of paintings of the flesh. Once upon a time in the early 1980s, even I met a girl in the old Musée Picasso ... Alas, and probably for good, museums »

‘Boy Meets Girl’ Review

Stars: Michael Galante, Michelle Hendley, Jean Devereux Koester, Ethan Major, Scott Martineck, Christopher McHale, Benj Mirman, Randall Newsome, Jacob Perkins, Joseph Ricci | Written and Directed by Eric Schaeffer

My gender identity is complex, but my life experiences intersect frequently with those of trans women and it’s a category I feel proud to be partially resident in.  I dress femme, I’m starting estrogen in a couple weeks, I’ve flirted with voice training, and when I go out for a walk it’s pretty solid odds that at least one passer-by is going to scream some shopworn slur at me.  This review was a deeply personal experience for me, and it’s as much a breakdown of my thoughts on life as a trans person as it is a dissection of a sweet, uncomplicated rom-com.

There are several longstanding traditions in Western film and television regarding trans women.  First, »
