Gary Indiana’s Great Material

Gary Indiana’s Great Material
Writers have a hard time controlling what they’re known for: It could be the wrong book, or no book at all but instead some provocation, feud, love affair, scandal, or autopsy. In his new memoir, I Can Give You Anything But Love, Gary Indiana laments that a young reporter profiling him seems mostly interested in “the art criticism I wrote for three years in the mid-1980s ... a bunch of yellowing newspaper columns I never republished and haven’t cared about for a second since writing them a quarter century ago.” A memoir, of course, is an opportunity to shift the emphasis.

Previous | Image 1 of 4 | NextThe new book from Richard Lewis is ‘Reflections From Hell.’

Chicago – The “Prince of Pain” was in Chicago recently. Richard Lewis, the overtly introspective and hilarious stand up comedian, has written a new book – “Reflections From Hell” – and appeared at Chicago’s City Winery, plus sold out two shows at the legendary Zanies comedy club.

The Brooklyn-born Lewis began performing stand-up comedy in late 1970s. After making numerous appearances on David Letterman in the 1980s, he landed on the sitcom “Anything But Love” in 1989, which ran for four seasons. Other TV projects include “Daddy Dearest,” Showtime’s “Rude Awakening,” and a recurring role (as himself) on “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Films include “Robin Hood: Men in Tights,” “Once Upon a Crime” and “Leaving Las Vegas.” He popularized the phrase “The _____ from hell,” which contributed to the title of his new book, “Reflections from Hell.”

'NCIS: New Orleans' is staging a 'Quantum Leap' reunion
NCIS: New Orleans” is staging a “Quantum Leap” reunion Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell will be reunited when Stockwell plays a retired cop who’s confronted about a murder from 40 years ago. Neil Patrick Harris: I don’t want to host an Oscars that is "super derivative of other shows that I’ve done" "I don’t want it to seem like I’m doing the same award hosting gig that I did on the Tonys, just now on a different stage,” he says. "And I think they don’t want that, either … It’s the biggest sandbox in the world. If you say, 'I think that I should do a thing with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.' Because it’s the Oscars, do they say yes? Because they would say no for the Tonys … I want to also just make sure that it’s a classy event.

'Halloween': Jamie Lee Curtis would like you to have the greatest Michael Myers mask ever

'Halloween': Jamie Lee Curtis would like you to have the greatest Michael Myers mask ever
There are great Halloween movies, but then there is Halloween. John Carpenter’s 1978 slasher movie, about an escaped lunatic wearing a white William Shatner mask and wrecking havoc on a small town, had a terrifying villain, a spine-tingling score, and the perfect young heroine. Jamie Lee Curtis was only 19 years old when she starred as Laurie Strode, the wholesome babysitter who becomes the target of Michael Myers’ sister obsession. It was an iconic genre role — not unlike the one her mother, Janet Leigh, played in Psycho — and she spent the next few years being chased and screaming in movies like The Fog and Prom Night.

The Case of the Missing Garden Gnome and Comedic Subtlety: A Short Film Review

*full disclosure: a screener was provided by director Alberto Belli.

Director: Alberto Belli.

Writer: Joe Swanson.

Cast: Rob Benedict, Marti Kass and Holly Fulger.

Noir is not just about black and white, desolation and the modern detective novel. Quite often, these films are about the isolation the weary P.I. faces and his outlook on life is often bleak. Sometimes, this individual simply needs a little spice in his life, or his funny bone tickled.

In The Case of the Missing Garden Gnome (Cmgg), this genre gets a stylish update. It’s like watching an episode of "Magnum P.I." near the end of its run, when the production team and cast decided that they should have fun with conventions. Here, this short film project is a light-hearted look at the life of Seamus Biggs (Rob Benedict), a gumshoe looking for a case that will make his career. He has
