Tiff Review: ‘El Angel’ Walks a Tightrope Between Macho Crime Flick and a Queer Riff

Throughout the early 1970s, Carlos Robledo Puch committed a number of homicides and robberies that scandalized Argentina. Dubbed “El Angel” by the press for his youth and good looks, he was eventually caught and thrown in prison, where he remains to this day. Now dramatized in the feature film also bearing that nickname, the notorious criminal’s life luckily gets the chance to be as banalized as any other big-screen serial killer.

Sure, it’s true that making claims about Puch’s life or rather acting like Luis Ortega’s film is absolutely an attempt to unlock the mystery behind the man–or, rather, boy–is unfair. Yet if the film wants to serve as some kind of grander indictment of how a generation’s malaise spawned so much violence, or even just deliver a consistently entertaining film, it can’t help but come as a failure.

Alt-j Previews Remix Album With Syrupy Danny Brown Collaboration
Alt-j tapped Danny Brown and producers the Alchemist and Trooko to rework their song “Deadcrush” into a sleek jam. The track will appear on Alt-j’s upcoming remix album, Reduxer, out September 28th via Canvasback/Atlantic.

‘American Idol’: Drag queen Ada Vox to win season 16 after slaying in audition on March 25? [Poll]

Ada Vox made a triumphant return to “American Idol” on March 25 five years after being bounced from the top 50. Back then, the draq queen competed as Adam Sanders. As she explained to the three judges — Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie — back then, “I was just a a chubby little Latino boy.” After enduring years of being bullied for “my weight, my sexuality” she reemerged as a defiant drag queen.

Vox proved her mettle with a rousing rendition of “House of the Rising Sun” by the Animals. She won over all the judges with her performance. When Perry expressed concerns that she would not take the competition seriously, Vox reassured her that she was in it to win it. “I’m not here to play with anybody. I’m here to chase my dreams and make them come true.”

American Idol Recap: Season 16 Auditions Conclude With a Former Contestant's Dramatic Return
What a difference five years can make.

Sunday’s American Idol, which marked the final night of Season 16 auditions, ended with the return of a familiar face, at least to those who watched the show’s 12th season really closely.

Before melting the judges’ faces with a killer rendition of the Animals’ “House of the Rising Sun,” 24-year-old Ada Vox recalled making it to the Top 50 in 2013, back when they were “just a chubby little Latino boy” by the name of Adam. But post-Idol life wasn’t kind to Ada. “People attacked my weight, my sexuality,” Ada recalled, adding that

“I don’t want to see them die for what I did,” growls Al Pacino as the grizzled homicide detective in Johnny Martin’s upcoming crime thriller Hangman. This new trailer doesn’t make clear exactly what Pacino did – whether he missed a vowel or consonant in the child’s game of the title, or maybe something worse – but victims are hanging around all over town. Set to the tune of “House of the Rising Sun,” the trailer introduces us to Pacino’s homicide detective Ray Archer and…

British Soul Great Eric Burdon Debuts His Electrifying Take on a ’60s Protest Anthem
Eric Burdon’s soulful, heart-stopping wail made him one of the most unforgettable voices of the ’60s. As the lead singer for British Invasion heroes the Animals, he injected a dose of gritty reality into the pop charts with hits like “House of the Rising Sun” and “We Gotta Get Out of This Place,” and by decade’s end he had moved on to front the barrier-breaking funk group, War.

Today, the music legend remains an active advocate for peace, producing music aimed squarely at the status quo. In honor of his 76th birthday, Burdon is treating fans to a

Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson on Creating the World of ‘The Endless’

As someone who loved Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson‘s Spring to the point of seeking out everything else they had done before that point, hearing about a new work debuting at Tribeca got me excited to see what they would deliver. My assumption was that it was the Aleister Crowley picture they spoke about when I interviewed them last year — I was wrong. While that discovery wasn’t surprising considering how long projects gestate, it was shocking to discover The Endless proved to be a sequel to their first feature collaboration Resolution.

They have created a film around the characters they played themselves: Aaron and Justin, UFO cult members. Would this new tale ten years later be only tangentially related through these characters or would the mythos be the same? If the latter, would it bring back the “monster,” locale, and supporting cast? These are important questions to ask,

Exclusive: ‘Moana’ Star Auli'i Cravalho Says Bump on Her Head Is a Reminder That the Oscars Wasn’t a Dream
Auli'i Cravalho is taking a cue from her portrayal of Moana these days. “I think I’ve become a little more adventurous through her character,” the 16-year-old explains to Et. “I’ve traveled across the world and am able to meet all these wonderful people.” Like the Disney-animated princess who voyages across the ocean in search of a demigod named Maui, Cravalho, who voiced the title role in the film (now available on Blu-ray and Digital HD), is venturing all over New York City for the next three weeks as she tapes a live-action pilot for a new NBC show called Drama High.

“I am very excited. I get to wear scarves and coats because it's cold,” the Hawaiian native exclaims. The show centers on talented students from a working-class town in a standout high school drama department, who are enriched by their impassioned teacher.

One thing that was so often overlooked in Westworld‘s blistering rise to prominence is the official soundtrack. Orchestrated by musical maestro Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones, Pacific Rim), the score was crafted with a blend of classical orchestra and electronica, peppered with dark, jarring covers of pop music from the likes of The Rolling Stones, Radiohead, Soundgarden and The Pixies.

Available to purchase and stream across all the usual platforms (read: Apple Music and Spotify), the Westworld soundtrack bundles together 34 tracks in total. From “House of the Rising Sun” to “Paint It Black,” those of you fully up-to-date with HBO’s sci-fi Western will appreciate how Djawadi’s score is able to transport you back to specific moments from the source material. That, and it will make the wait for Westworld‘s second season that little bit more bearable.

We dive right into the repercussions of last week’s episode, as Bernard deals with the anguish of Theresa’s death, while Ford marvels at the depths of emotion Bernard is feeling — before he turns them off, and instructs Bernard to cover up Theresa’s death and erase any record of their relationship beyond colleagues.

When Charlotte learns that Theresa is dead, she seems to accept (wih suspicion) Ford’s story about her having slipped and fallen; however, she then enlists Sizemore to help her smuggle “35 years worth of data” out of the park using retired host Peter Abernathy. Initially, it seemed like the board was prepared to take its time getting rid of Dr. Ford — now, it looks like the timetable has sped up.
