Wes World: The Cut-to-Fit Universe of Wes Anderson

11 March 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

He's been called a master of hip cinematic heartbreak who deals in worlds as shiny and perfect as a Christmas ornament — or, put more charitably, a virtuoso at making pathos both wrenching and witty in a idiosyncratic, individual style. You always know when you're watching a Wes Anderson film; the symmetrical compositions and deep-cut soundtracks are a dead giveaway. His latest movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, has members of his repertory-players cast (including Jason Schwartzman, Willem Dafoe, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Owen Wilson) zipping through a never-quite-was 20th-century Europe, one »

What Kind of Television Does Neil Labute Really Want to Make?

21 February 2014 1:42 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Way back in September, NBC announced that it was developing "Harmony House," a half-hour romantic-comedy series about a psychiatric resident who falls in love with a mental patient. It's an offbeat premise, but it's not half as strange as the announcement of who would write and serve as executive producer: Neil Labute. Labute is no stranger to career curveballs -- he followed his bilious black comedies "In the Company of Men" and "Your Friends & Neighbors" with the odd satire "Nurse Betty," and a return to familiar territory of "The Shape of Things" with his wackadoo remake of "The Wicker Man" and a pair of work-for-hire jobs ("Lakeview Terrance," "Death at a Funeral"). He's an uneven filmmaker, not to mention divisive, with his caustic voice often curdling into airless misanthropy and misogyny whenever his portraits of male pathology lose their sense of autocriticism. But whatever can be said for his films and plays, »

20 Least Romantic Movies Ever

12 February 2014 6:24 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Like an avenging angel wrapped in red cellophane, Valentine’s Day is back to remind us all that we should be better lovers. You know what, Valentine’s Day? F*ck you and the Whitman’s Sampler you rode in on. Here are 20 reasons why nobody should bother with romance this February 14.

1. The Talented Mr. Ripley

Ripley is a great movie, but it’s long on suspense and deception and short on romance. Ripley connives and insinuates his way through a whole gaggle of actual and imagined romantic partners – both female and male – and even those who manage to survive to the final reel are most assuredly a bit more guarded after dating him. Side note: did you realize that the guy that Ripley romances and then murders is Derek from Smash? Seriously, one of the best casts ever assembled, and also Gwyneth Paltrow.

2. Looking for Mr. Goodbar

Anti-romance, anti-feminist, »
