Review ‘Her Composition’ Directed by Stephan Littger

Review ‘Her Composition’ Directed by Stephan Littger
By Peter BelsitoThis very internal subjective psychological drama features rising indie star Joslyn Jensen (‘Without’, ‘Driftwood’) ) as ambitious young composition student Malorie who has her creative juices sucked right out of her by the testosterone-stuffed New York academy where she studies for her PhD.

She is justly upset by the crass and demeaning treatment she is given there.

After being put down and losing access to the all-female scholarship she is finding no more energy to even feel inspired, and then she starts visiting strangers in the city for sex and pay

With lace-wearing Malorie absurdly out of place at first but pushed beyond her narrow confines by curiosity and boredom, she realizes that these commercial sexual encounters inspire her in the most unexpected manner as she starts to hear music during these commercial sex acts.

This is both comical and serious at first, as she decides she must write

It never was you by Anne-Katrin Titze

Laurie Simmons on Kurt Weill's It Never Was You: "I love the words to the song because of Ellie [Laurie Simmons] assuming all these characters. It has so many meanings." Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Laurie Simmons has assembled an impressive list of collaborators for her debut feature film My Art, including Barbara Sukowa, Blair Brown, Parker Posey, and Lena Dunham to go along with her film vignette reenactment partners Robert Clohessy, John Rothman and Josh Safdie.

Costume designer Stacey Battat (Wash Westmoreland and Richard Glatzer's Still Alice, Scott McGehee and David Siegel's What Maisie Knew, Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled and The Bling Ring) and production designer Kelly McGehee (Oren Moverman's The Dinner and Time Out Of Mind, Reed Morano's Meadowland and I Think We're Alone Now) dressed up the actors and the sets respectively, and Celia Rowlson-Hall brilliantly recreated choreography from Joshua Logan's Picnic, starring William Holden and Kim Novak.

Review: ‘My Art’ Presents a Pleasant Personal Reckoning

Laurie Simmons may be new to feature filmmaking, but she is a veteran of the arts scene. A graduate of the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, she moved to SoHo in 1973 and soon thereafter commenced the phase of her photography career for which she would be most well-known: the shooting of dolls that have been lit and arranged within a miniature domestic space in a manner that resembled actual images of people within their homes. From the 1980s onward, she expanded on her interest in dolls in various ways, from a series on male ventriloquist dummies to works featuring “walking objects”—large props worn by her friend Jimmy de Sana—to the 1997 Music of Regret series where Simmons commissioned sort-of self-portraits starring a female doll whose face had been made to resemble her own.

The last project is the one that is most widely referenced in My Art,

Performer of the Week: Jane Krakowski
The Performer | Jane Krakowski

The Show | BoJack Horseman

The Episode | “The Old Sugarman Place” (Sept. 8, 2017)

The Performance | We don’t often honor animated shows in this space… much less melancholy animated sitcoms about a chronically depressed horse. But dammit, we had to this week, because Krakowski’s hilarious, heartbreaking Season 4 guest spot as BoJack’s grandmother Honey was just that good.

We met Honey in flashbacks, as BoJack retreated from the world in his family’s old Michigan lake house. At first, it seemed like Krakowski would just be in comedy mode as Honey rattled off 1940s slang while fawning

One Mississippi Review – Season Two

One of the trickiest aspects of dark comedy is that you can’t analyze (or experience) any of the parts and get much out of it. There aren’t any zingers, guffaws, or wild snippets that are in any real sense “comedic” when removed from the whole. You can’t zoom in. You can only try increasingly to pull back and see the whole picture. Dark comedic drama only magnifies this. Worse still, anyone aiming at such a genre has to have a viewpoint that is going to aim at any objective by slyly sneaking around the outskirts of possibility, hoping to sneak up behind their mark.

Tig Notaro‘s One Mississippi is such an odd approach to the very format of television that it becomes hard to describe without qualifying every statement you might make about it. It isn’t just that we’re riding along as she navigates oddball characters,

‘One Mississippi’ Review: Season 2 Tells 3 Beautiful Love Stories with One Profound Point
One Mississippi” is more than the sum of its parts, because it loves each and every part of itself so very much.

Tig Notaro’s semi-autobiographical Amazon series has a laid-back Southern pacing that sucks you in, like the warm waters of the river it’s named after; the episode arcs are deliberate, clear, and eloquent, much like the radio show Tig’s character hosts and the real-life Tig contributed to (“This American Life”); but most of all, the six-episode sequel season is beautiful in its intentions and construction — a loving ode to a life made better by acknowledging the past to improve upon the future.

Trailer Watch: Tig Notaro Is Fearless in Season 2 of “One Mississippi”

One Mississippi

“Let’s face it,” Kate (Stephanie Allynne) tells Tig (Tig Notaro), “Mississippi is just not the right demographic for you.” Kate — the producer of Tig’s radio show — is worried that Tig’s openness about being a lesbian, her refusal to censor herself, and her left-leaning opinions won’t go over well in their old-fashioned community of Biloxi, Ms.

But, as the Season 2 trailer for “One Mississippi” makes clear, Tig considers the culture clash an opportunity. “What happened to fearlessness?” she asks Kate.

The first season of Amazon’s “One Mississippi” followed Tig as she returned to her hometown after her mother’s death. Created by Notaro and “Juno” screenwriter Diablo Cody, the series also stars John Rothman as Tig’s stepfather, Bill, and Noah Harpster as her brother, Remy.

In addition to fending off gay conversion advocates, the upcoming season will see all three main characters pursue romance. Tig tries to summon the courage to ask Kate out, Remy dates a woman who doubts dinosaurs ever existed, and Bill is drawn to a love interest who claims to be “a very fun person.”

Season 2 of “One Mississippi” will stream on Amazon beginning September 8.

‘One Mississippi’ Teaser: Tig Notaro Is No Longer Gay In Season Two of Amazon’s Dark Comedy

‘One Mississippi’ Teaser: Tig Notaro Is No Longer Gay In Season Two of Amazon’s Dark Comedy
Onstage, Tig Notaro is cool as a cucumber, willing to wait for the laughs and relishing silence. Her dry delivery and offbeat perspective stand in stark contrast to today’s popular neurotic, high-energy stand-up. That same quiet confidence permeates “One Mississippi,” Notaro’s autobiographical Amazon series about returning to her hometown after the death of her mother, which released a teaser for its second season today.

Read More‘One Mississippi’ Review: Tig Notaro’s Inspired Amazon Comedy is Fearless and Funny In Equal Doses

It’s been five years since Notaro’s brutally honest and heartbreakingly funny stand-up special, “Live,” skyrocketed the comedian to a new level of notoriety. Recorded just one week after Notaro learned she had breast cancer, which was the same year her mother died, the totally improvised half-hour set became instant comedy legend. Not only that, it ushered in a shift towards darker, more personal stand-up across the industry.

Laurie Simmons Has a Charming and Cinematic Mid-Life Crisis in Feature Directorial Debut ‘My Art’ — Tribeca Review

Laurie Simmons Has a Charming and Cinematic Mid-Life Crisis in Feature Directorial Debut ‘My Art’ — Tribeca Review
There’s no question that photographer and artist Laurie Simmons has an eye for images, and while her feature directorial debut “My Art” relies heavily on a series of homages to some of cinema’s most beloved features, the newbie narrative filmmaker really impresses in an unexpected arena. Simmons pulls triple duty on the film, writing, directing and starring in the feature, and although she knows how to compose lovely shots and her insight into the art world is keen, it’s her performance as artist Ellie that stands out in an otherwise predictable feature about growing up, no matter your age.

Mashing up mid-life crisis narratives (the film is heavy on the Nancy Meyers influence, down to the shades of “Baby Boom” and an attention to great interior design) with various recreations of classic films that run the gamut from “Some Like It Hot” to “Jules and Jim” and plenty of pictures in between,
