‘The Lachrymist’ is a Mind-Bending, One-Take Wonder

Short of the DayHang on to your sanity.

Literally, the word “lachrymology” means “the study of crying.” Philosophically, it describes the belief that spiritual advancement is only possible through pain, both of the physical and emotional varieties.

While The Lachrymist from writer-director Matthew Gowan doesn’t confront this philosophy head on, it is certainly an emotional undercurrent of this taut, chilling, deviously confounding tale of psychological terror.

The plot is hauntingly simple: Savitri (Navi Rawat, Numb3rs, The O.C.) checks into a hotel room with her husband Byron (James Harvey Ward, True Blood, Low Winter Sun). At one point, she leaves the room, but when she tries to make her way back to it, somehow she can’t seem to find it. She asks the staff to help her, but they can’t because she’s not a registered guest of the hotel. Furthermore, they claim to have never seen her, and

TV Review: ‘Chance’

TV Review: ‘Chance’
You would have to search far and wide to find a drama more glum and dismal than “Chance.” Hugh Laurie, who capably anchored “House” for so many years and who was delightfully duplicitous in AMC’s recent miniseries “The Night Manager,” cannot manage to lift this dull drama out of the array of ruts that it stubbornly wallows in.

Laurie plays Eldon Chance, a neuropsychiatrist whose practice puts him in touch with patients dealing with mental illness, traumatic brain injuries, or some combination of both. In the course of his work, the doctor, who is in the process of getting a divorce, comes across a woman whose problems awaken a misguided savior complex in him. Partly due to a need for money, partly in search of a connection that will lift him out of middle-aged anomie, he’s drawn down an increasingly violent and dangerous path, and his pursuit of a woman who may or may not

Review: David Schwimmer rises above the overcooked 'Feed the Beast'
On AMC's new drama Feed the Beast, best friends Tommy (David Schwimmer) and Dion (Jim Sturgess) try opening a fancy restaurant in the Bronx so that Tommy can get over the death of his wife in a hit-and-run accident, while Dion can pay off a massive debt he owes to a local mob boss. Along the way, they acquire an inexperienced restaurant manager, Pilar (Lorenza Izzo), who takes the job because she has a crush on Tommy, but who's really there as a device for the show to let Tommy and Dion explain the finer points of the business to the audience. At one point, for instance, she objects to Dion spending so much money on skillets. He responds by offering her a dish made in one of his pans and the same one made in the big box store model Tommy has in his own kitchen; the former is

Why ‘The Good Wife’ Didn’t Earn That Ending

Why ‘The Good Wife’ Didn’t Earn That Ending
Don’t read on unless you’ve seen “End,” the series finale of “The Good Wife.”

During the past few seasons, “The Good Wife” has poked fun at Prestige Drama cliches by giving viewers scenes of Alicia watching a pretentious show called “Darkness at Noon.” Viewers could debate which overwrought drama “The Good Wife” was making fun of — maybe it was “Low Winter Sun,” perhaps it was the second season of “True Detective,” or maybe the mockery was targeting another ambitious drama that took itself far too seriously. It didn’t really matter which show “The Good Wife” was dragging, because most of us got — and enjoyed — the joke.

Satirizing some of the most tiresome tropes of dramatic television served a few purposes for “The Good Wife”: It made the CBS show seem more enjoyable by comparison to some fictional, pompous, macho mess, and it made the adjacent point

Behind AMC’s Post–Mad Men Game Plan (and Why There’s No End in Sight for The Walking Dead)

  • Vulture
Behind AMC’s Post–Mad Men Game Plan (and Why There’s No End in Sight for The Walking Dead)
Late in the summer of 2013, as Breaking Bad was nearing the end of its run, AMC unleashed a flurry of announcements about its post–Walter White future. Within a space of just a few weeks, the network revealed plans for a prequel to Bad, green-lit development of a new chapter in The Walking Dead saga, and said that the final 15-episode season of its beloved signature drama Mad Men would be spread out over two years. To put it mildly, the internet was not impressed. Former head Vulture Josh Wolk, echoing sentiments heard all over social media at the time, bemoaned what he saw as a looming creative bankruptcy at the theretofore critically beloved channel: “Get it together, AMC,” read the headline on Wolk’s screed.Coming as they did in the wake of the commercial and critical failure of Low Winter Sun and the decidedly mixed reaction to the

Queen Latifah Lands Lead Role in Lee Daniels’ Fox Music Pilot

Queen Latifah Lands Lead Role in Lee Daniels’ Fox Music Pilot
Queen Latifah has landed a lead role in Lee Daniels’ untitled music project at Fox, which was formerly titled “Star,” Variety has learned. Three more regulars — all relative newcomers — have also been cast.

The Untitled Lee Daniels Music Pilot goes into production this month in Atlanta, and while the potential series has only been ordered to pilot at this point, Queen Latifah’s star power, combined with Daniels’ “Empire” track record at Fox, makes the project a strong contender for the 2016-17 television season.

The pilot revolves around three young women, who form a girl group with hopes of making it big in the music industry. The project has been described in the vein of “Dreamgirls,” while incorporating the manufacturing of modern-day girl groups, showcasing the allure and heartache of the cut-throat music scene, and exploring cultural themes from a new perspective.

Queen Latifah will anchor the young cast, playing Carlotta,
