Remembering Jerry Lewis, the World’s First Rock Star of Imbecility

23 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jerry Lewis, who died last week at 91, was hardly the first comedian to make people laugh by acting transcendently idiotic. The Marx Brothers took hilarious head-spinning dives into the outer limits of surreal silliness. So did Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello and the Three Stooges. But Jerry Lewis was the world’s first rock star of imbecility.

If you watch one of his comedy routines with Dean Martin from the ’40s and ’50s, you see something amazing. Martin, brandishing his sleepy-eyed cocktail-lounge machismo, was the straight man, and Lewis, flitting and prancing around him, was a one-man circus of slapstick brain damage — he jumped on people, he brayed out words in a mincing baby voice, he crossed his eyes and giggled at his own jokes, and every so often he slipped in a crack so smart that it let you know everything he was doing was a put-on. Yet it was Martin, the »

Trailer Watch: Two Friends Face Trauma and Grief in Liz W. Garcia’s “One Percent More Humid”

21 August 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

One Percent More Humid

“This is a moment right before everything falls apart,” a serious Iris (Juno Temple) tells her forbidden lover, Gerald (Alessandro Nivola). “You just have to keep walking and trying not to fall down for as long as possible.”

As writer-director Liz W. Garcia told Women and Hollywood, “This is a film about grief. Sorry! There are some laughs, too, and it’s sexy, I promise. But essentially, this is a movie about the effect of grief on the friendship of two young women.”

The Tribeca award-nominated “One Percent More Humid” features Temple (Jill Soloway’s “Afternoon Delight”) and Julia Garner (“Grandma”) as two friends who return home for the summer. Instead of the lighthearted summer they originally planned, they become overwhelmed with respective forbidden love affairs. Eventually, the two are finally forced to confront the trauma and grief they’ve spent so much time trying to repress.

Garcia explains that “One Percent More Humid” was 15 years in the making. “This particular idea begged to be written because I wrote it when I was the age of these characters, and I set it the world I grew up in. It was about lust I felt, loneliness I felt, and the places in the natural world that moved me.”

One Percent More Humid” also features Maggie Siff (“Sons of Anarchy,” “Mad Men”) and Mamoudou Athie (“Patti Cake$”). The film will be available on VOD October 10.

Top of the Lake: China Girl Review: Elisabeth Moss Shines (Again) in Sundance's Superb Crime Drama

21 August 2017 6:30 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Elisabeth Moss will be a top contender at this year’s Emmys, and deservedly so, for her work in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale. And she might as well make plans for a return trip next year, too, based on her knockout performance in Sundance’s gritty, mesmerizing crime drama Top of the Lake: China Girl.

A sequel to 2013’s Top of the Lake, China Girl — a six-hour Australian miniseries premiering Sunday, Sept. 10 at 9/8c and airing over three consecutive nights — finds Moss’ police detective Robin Griffin back in Sydney, still guarded and on edge after the traumatic events of last season. »

As the continental United States embraces Eclipse Fever, here are a handful of recent TV series and movies that have incorporated the solar event into storylines and plots. The website Eclipse Guy has put together a thorough database of movies, TV series, music videos and commercials that have included eclipse scenes; IndieWire has curated a list of six recent ones on the small screen.

In recent years, Elisabeth Moss has remained largely silent about her involvement with the Church of Scientology — but earlier this week, the actress touched on the subject.

Win ‘The Bleeder’ On DVD – Liev Schrieber Leads The Story Of ‘The Real Rocky’

18 August 2017 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To co-inside with its release on on DVD, Blu-ray & Digital August 21st, we have two copies of the boxing biopic The Bleeder to give away.

The Bleeder is the true-life story of Chuck Wepner, a liquor salesman from New Jersey, who went 15 rounds in the stunning 1975 heavyweight world championship against the greatest boxer of all time, Muhammad Ali, and ultimately inspired the billion-dollar Rocky franchise. In his ten years as a boxer, Wepner endured eight broken noses, 14 losses, two knockouts, and a total of 313 stitches. But his toughest fights were outside the ring: living an epic life of booze, drugs, wild women, exemplifying incredible highs and extraordinary lows.

Featuring a fantastic cast led by Liev Schreiber (Spotlight, Ray Donovan) as Chuck, The Bleeder co-stars Naomi Watts (Mulholland Drive), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, The Handmaid’s Tale), Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Jim Gaffigan (The Jim Gaffigan Show) and is directed by »

Top Of The Lake – China Girl episode 4 review: Birthday

Puss’ villainy is front and centre in the latest uncomfortable, captivating Top Of The Lake: China Girl episode…

This review contains spoilers.

See related  Better Call Saul season 3 episode 10 review: Lantern The subtle rise of good prequels

2.4 Birthday

Three trays of food were delivered in this week’s China Girl, all of them symbols of devotion. One came to Brett’s wankpit from his mum, who treats her prostitute-using son like a little prince. Another, decorated with flowers and a ‘We love you Puss’ Post-It, was from the brothel women to their repugnant landlord. The last was from Pyke to Mary, an eighteenth birthday breakfast from dad to daughter. Three versions of love: one blind, one warped, one pure.

Even the purest variety of love has its dark edges, Birthday showed us. Dad/daughter dances come with a side of unacknowledged weirdness. However innocent the intentions, »

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Star Elisabeth Moss Talks Show’s Politics, Teases Season 2

16 August 2017 4:50 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

This story on Elisabeth Moss first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine. Elisabeth Moss has already played the poster child for female empowerment for seven seasons and six Emmy nominations on “Mad Men,” as her secretary-turned-copywriter Peggy Olson fought to be recognized in the casually misogynistic world of 1960s Madison Avenue. But that was a minor struggle compared to what Moss’ character goes through in “The Handmaid’s Tale,” Hulu’s adaptation of the 1985 Margaret Atwood novel about a theocratic society that uses Biblical texts to brutally repress women. Even in the privileged classes in Gilead, »

Not that he's demanding it—no, no. James is cool. He's always been cool. So in that affable way of his that can be equal parts endearing and insufferable, he asks his going-on-23-year-old coworker, Freddie Sykes (Jake Wardle)—a U.K. to U.S. transplant who, like James, is a security guard at the Great Northern Hotel—to explain why he's always wearing a green gardener's glove on his right hand. "Tell me the story," he says to Freddie. The young man obliges the birthday boy with a captivating tale ("you ain't gonna believe me anyway," he prefaces) of a man in the sky called The Fireman, who told him to buy the glove, »
