Stephen Colbert Reprises ‘Report’ Character With Jon Stewart to Crush Donald Trump (Video)

19 July 2016 7:16 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Stephen Colbert brought back his beloved “Colbert Report” character on Monday — an effort to destroy Donald Trump. The real Colbert needed some help reprising the faux one, and Jon Stewart was there to do just that. And by “there,” we mean in an isolated cabin in the woods, where the former “Daily Show” host keeps his highly patriotic protege. The extremely conservative character soon took the “Late Show” desk, to the familiar “Stephen! Stephen! Stephen!” chant of yesteryear. He then dove right into an old-school version of Comedy Central segment “The Word.” This one was “Trumpiness,” and it was great. »

5 April 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Craig Keller and Uncas Blythe continue our series of film dialogues. Isiah Medina's 88:88 is having its exclusive online premiere at Mubi, playing through April 17, 2016.Craig Keller: We're going to talk about Isiah Medina's 66-minute film from 2015, 88:88. It's a challenging movie: polyphonic, polypictorial, but not confrontational, in fact pretty chilled-out; if it were featured on Top Gear the hosts might praise its speed, dynamic facility, and stability of suspension. 88:88 presents Medina himself and a group of friends or characters from university in and around the neighborhoods of Winnipeg.Now I'll refrain from synopsizing any more. I had a hard time with the film, but like any complicated work revisitations in whole and in part yield stronger comprehension; accordingly, new insights rise to the surface. Going back through it again the other day I started by watching only the first ten minutes, which provide an overture, »
