Code Black Season 2 Episode 9 Review: Sleight of Hand

1 December 2016 12:59 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

You gotta have faith.

Okay, that's a motto that was more applicable to the George Michael loving Eli Stone, but Code Black Season 2 Episode 9 was trying really hard to work that message in. Really hard. 

I'm not really sure why Noa needed faith to suck it up and reach out to her patient's widow, but whatever gets the job done, right? Although honestly, I'm also not sure she should have felt as much guilt as she did. Maybe I just have the romantic range of a teaspoon, but unless they'd had a fight, "Tell my wife I love her" isn't earth shattering or unexpected.

No, if Noa was going to feel guilty about anything it should have been about not going back out and completing her ride along. And even that's a stretch. Recognizing your limits is as important a skill as anything else in medicine.

27 October 2016 2:40 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

What if the person you always thought was a loser suddenly dies and you discover they had a rich life after all? That’s the premise of Anthony Edwards’ film “My Dead Boyfriend,” the story of a woman who embarks on an eccentric journey after coming home to find her boyfriend has died.

Based on Arthur Nersessian’s 2000 novel “dogrun,” the film film follows Mary (Heather Graham), who desperately tries to get rid of her dead boyfriend’s ashes and finds herself in numerous misadventures, like playing bass in a rock band, befriending a dog, and meeting up with ex-lovers. Along the way, she realizes she’s more than her string of temp jobs and discovers there’s much more to her couch potato boyfriend. The film co-stars Katherine Moenning (“The L Word”), John Corbett (“Northern Exposure”), Gina Gershon (“Face/Off”), Scott Michael Foster (“Greek”), Griffin Dunne (“After Hours”) and more. »

Rose Troche Does Vr: How A Major ’90s Filmmaker Is Making New Technology Indie

17 August 2016 8:06 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“If I tell you to move a little, it’s not because I don’t think you’re beautiful,” said Rose Troche, speaking to an extra on the set for her latest Vr film, an untitled short based on the Orlando shooting. “I like to have things happening all over.”

Most of the extras were too young to remember “Go Fish,” Troche’s history-making debut feature. (Made for an estimated $15,000, it made over $2.5 million at the box office.) Shot in black and white, “Go Fish” is a lesbian romantic comedy that became the little indie that could when it played Sundance in 1994. “I don’t think ‘Go Fish’ launched a thousand queer filmmakers so much as it launched a thousand indie filmmakers,” Troche said.

Troche went on to direct “Bedrooms and Hallways” in 1998 and “The Safety of Objects” in 2001. Since then she’s moved to TV, directing an episode of »

‘Looking’ Review: Filmmaker Andrew Haigh Should Stick To Indies

20 July 2016 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ever since the gay television swell of the early to mid-aughts, viewers have been looking to the fill void left by “The L Word,” “Will & Grace” and “Queer as Folk.” Sadly, “Looking” leaves them still looking. Andrew Haigh’s HBO series (which only lasted two seasons) deliberately eschewed the fabulousness of those beloved shows, instead aiming for the unstructured writing and hipster ennui of “Girls.” In his eagerness to distinguish the series from its natural predecessors, Haigh strayed too far from his own voice, so clearly defined in his acclaimed feature films “Weekend” and “45 Years.”

HBO may have been betting that Haigh could conjure some of the magic of those films for his feature-length take on “Looking.” Unfortunately, the film only plays like an epilogue to the series, resurrecting its hunky characters just so viewers can ogle them a bit longer. It’s the lesbian couple trying to make it work one last time, »

Louisa Mellor Jul 1, 2016

Not every artist is happy to have their song featured in a particular TV show or film. Here are 17 times the rights were refused...

It's not only political campaigns that inspire musical artists to exercise the power of veto on the use of their songs. For reasons of finance, reputation, ego, taste and more, the following TV shows and films weren't able to secure the use of the recordings they originally sought...

This Express piece quotes an Empire Magazine interview with Martin Scorsese’s long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker in which she relates how the original plan was to have Frank Sinatra’s original recording of My Way play over the end credits of modern gangster classic Goodfellas instead of the Sid Vicious cover that was eventually used.

Sinatra would never let Marty use his music,” explains Schoonmaker, “which is too bad because Marty may »

Screen Nsw CEO Courtney Gibson.

Screen Nsw is getting into virtual reality in a big way, with a new app unveiled last week and a Vr intensive taking place tomorrow, June 7, at Sydney's Carriageworks.

Vr seems to be everywhere - the Sydney Film Festival has programmed its first Vr sidebar in 2016, and Vivid Sydney is currently hosting a Björk Vr exhibition (also at Carriageworks).

For CEO Courtney Gibson, Screen Nsw's 360° Vision app is about spearheading audience as well as industry development.

"The suppliers of both viewing equipment and production equipment [for Vr] are now moving out into the marketplace", Gibson told If..

"That means it's time for us to equip the production sector. But creating the app is as much about developing audiences as it is about developing practitioners."

The agency's push into Vr is about "positioning Nsw as a hub for virtual reality", Gibson said.

‘Empire’ Showrunner Ilene Chaiken Responds to TV’s Lesbian Death Trope

6 April 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read ahead, if you have not watched the April 6 episode of “Empire.”

TV deaths are always a sore subject for fans, but lately, a slew of characters being killed off have struck an especially emotional chord — because the grim reaper has visited many fan-favorite characters who happen to be lesbians.

“The 100” faced much backlash from passionate viewers of the CW show who were enraged when a key character was killed off, just after she consummated her relationship with her female lover. AMC’s “The Walking Dead” also killed off a lesbian, as did Syfy’s “The Magicians,” “The Expanse,” CBS medical drama “Code Black” and CW’s “Jane the Virgin.”

Tonight, Fox’s “Empire” killed off a lesbian couple, played by Naomi Campbell and Marisa Tomei.

Though the pattern of television deaths has become a recent trend, “Empire” showrunner Ilene Chaiken — who co-created Showtime’s “The L Word »
