Kathy Baker (‘Paterno’): Wife was ‘unfortunately blindsided’ by Penn State sexual scandal [Exclusive Video Interview]

Kathy Baker (‘Paterno’): Wife was ‘unfortunately blindsided’ by Penn State sexual scandal [Exclusive Video Interview]
“She was unfortunately blindsided by this situation and was naive and ignorant about the whole situation. Think how confusing and how complicated and difficult for her,” reveals actress Kathy Baker about her role in the recent HBO TV movie “Paterno.” In our recent webchat (watch the exclusive video above), she discusses the real-life character of Sue Paterno, who was the wife of disgraced Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, played by Al Pacino.

The film is directed by Oscar winner Barry Levinson (“Rain Man”) and depicts the fallout in 2011 of the Penn State child sex abuse scandal, splitting its time with scenes featuring Oscar champ Pacino (“Scent of a Woman”) and others starring Riley Keough as Sara Ganim, the tough young reporter who would go on to win a Pulitzer Prize for breaking the story.

Angela Lansbury: Finally an Emmy winner for ‘Little Women’ after 18 career losses?

Angela Lansbury: Finally an Emmy winner for ‘Little Women’ after 18 career losses?
Angela Lansbury, 2018 Emmy contender for Masterpiece Theater’s adaptation of “Little Women,” has one of the most unique awards histories of any performer. In her over 75-year career she has managed to amass a significant number of nominations for all three of the major acting awards: three Oscar noms, 18 Emmy bids and seven Tony citations. While she has sailed through the Tony Awards winning five times, the other awards have been more elusive.

Her Oscar nominations all came early in her career and she came up empty handed all three times (the Academy did remedy that with an honorary Oscar in 2013). Lansbury’s Emmy history has been downright infuriating for her fans since she has lost a staggering 18 times. That streak may come to an end this year if Lansbury is able to achieve the award for her work in PBS’s “Little Women.”

Herschell Gordon Lewis’ The Gruesome Twosome – The Blu Review

Review by Roger Carpenter

After changing the landscape of American drive-in movies forever with 1963’s Blood Feast, Herschell Gordon Lewis quickly followed that film up with 2,000 Maniacs! and Color Me Blood Red. But Lewis was never one to sit around and relax after another drive-in triumph was in the can. In between these primitive gore classics he also directed other films including nudie cuties, roughies, documentaries, and even a family film entitled Jimmy, the Boy Wonder. But 1967 saw Lewis return to the horror genre with not one, but three, horror features. Two of these films are included in this package.

First up is the film that is highlighted on the packaging for this Blu-ray: The Gruesome Twosome. While H.G.’s first three horror opuses may have generated some (unintentional) laughs, his goal with The Gruesome Twosome was to inject some true black humor into the mix. This begins with the title of the flick.

‘Paterno’ reviews: Al Pacino ‘at his best’ in ‘remarkable’ performance as disgraced football coach Joe Paterno

‘Paterno’ reviews: Al Pacino ‘at his best’ in ‘remarkable’ performance as disgraced football coach Joe Paterno
Al Pacino is the king of HBO, winning Emmys for “You Don’t Know Jack” in 2010 and “Angels in America” in 2004. Both of these trophies came for playing real-life characters, so might his latest performance in “Paterno” as disgraced Penn State football coach Joe Paterno seal the deal for Emmy #3?

Television critics, as you’d expect, are raving about Pacino’s latest performance in the HBO telefilm. See some of their reviews below about the 1992 Oscar winner (“Scent of a Woman”), and then be sure to give us your Emmy predictions for Best Movie/Mini Actor.

TV Review: ‘Paterno’ With Al Pacino on HBO

Watching HBO Films’ latest snatched-from-the-headlines project, “Paterno,” one can’t help but wonder how different it might have been had Brian De Palma directed it.

He’s had an advantageous working relationship with star Al Pacino on both “Scarface” and “Carlito’s Way.” In his hands, the film could have been a “King Lear”-level tragedy about a sports legend whose singular focus led to his downfall.

Instead what viewers get is director Barry Levinson’s well-intended but paroxysmal journey into legendary college football coach Joe Paterno’s fall from grace, fired by Penn State for his role in the Jerry Sandusky abuse scandal.

‘Paterno’ Review: Al Pacino Is Low-Key Remarkable in a Scathing Portrait of Complicit Guilt

In the final act of “Paterno,” HBO’s crackling examination of the Penn State football coach’s legacy-defining final days, there’s a pivotal scene that draws you in only to smack you in the face for your misplaced compassion. Delivered a letter with a phone number inside, Joe Paterno (Al Pacino) shuffles down the hallway toward his bedroom and dials his portable landline. He lifts the receiver to his ear, says his name, listens briefly and then hangs up. “They fired me,” he says to his wife, Sue (Kathy Baker).

Joe, wearing his blue pajama bottoms, keeps walking, but Sue stops him in the bedroom and takes the phone. His hand dangles, unmoved from when it was still holding the receiver, as she redials the number and says, “After 61 years, he deserved better.” Paterno in this moment is a pathetic figure so far removed from the legend he built

In the trailer below, Paterno is seen meeting with advisers, attorneys, and his wife, the latter of which puts forth a personal question that sends him spinning. “He went in the pool with the kids,” she says. “Jerry did? Our kids?” he says. “Yeah.” “What are you saying?” he asks. “I’m saying you couldn’t have known, otherwise you wouldn’t have let them go in the pool,

The Ballad Of Lefty Brown – Review

The Ballad Of Lefty Brown has a classic Western story but with a different twist: this time the sidekick is the hero.

In the late 1880s, Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) is the long-time friend and partner of legendary Montana lawman turned rancher Eddie Johnson (Peter Fonda), who has just been elected senator from the new state. Eddie and his strong-willed wife Laura (Kathy Baker) are preparing to leave for Washington, D.C. and Eddie plans to leave his loyal friend Lefty in charge of his ranch. It is a plan his wife opposes, arguing that Lefty isn’t up to the job and is little more than a useless hanger-on who has been living off his friend for years. Even modest Lefty might agree he’s not up to the task: at 63, he walks with a limp,

Movie Review – The Ballad of Lefty Brown (2017)

The Ballad of Lefty Brown, 2017.

Written and Directed by Jared Moshe.

Starring Bill Pullman, Diego Josef, Tommy Flanagan, Jim Caviezel, Kathy Baker, Adam O’Byrne, Joe Anderson, Michael Spears, and Peter Fonda.

Synopsis:

A coming-of-age Western for a 65-year-old man.

A24 continues to be full of surprises, as there isn’t any other well-known distributor that would scoop up a full-blown Western that feels as if it was a restored feature from the 60s (unless it’s from Quentin Tarantino or another high-profile filmmaker). From frontier vistas captured seemingly with natural lighting, dirty production design, horses galloping, old-timey pistol gunfire, and a tried-and-true typical tale of vengeance, writer and director Jared Moshe’s (who has also dabbled in lower-budget Western dramas before) The Ballad of Lefty Brown is an anomaly for the current landscape of cinema. It may not reinvent the wheel of the classic genre, but the execution is
