    Direct from Broadway: Four Filmed Musicals Heading to Cinemas in Europe and North America

    A common lament in the New York theater world is that the business has become increasing Hollywood-ized. Especially on Broadway, the prevailing trend for some time has been toward spectacles with big name stars (often from the film world) and elaborate feats of technical theater, both of which may ...

    Simply the Worst: Disney's "Song of the South"

    Whether or not you’ve seen the 1946 Disney film Song of the South—and if you have, you probably haven’t seen it since at least 1986, the last time it was released to theaters—you’ve almost certainly been touched by it through some form of cultural osmosis. Perhaps, while at Disneyland, Disney World, or Tokyo Disneyland, you rode Splash Mountain, populated by the movie’s animated characters, Br’er Rabbit, Br’er Fox, and Br’er Bear. Maybe you’ve seen a clip of James Baskett performing the movie’s Oscar-winning song “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.” Or if Baskett’s version is unfamiliar to you, you might have heard the Muppet bunnies sing it, or Paula Abdul,...

    Review: Too Meta 'Human Centipede Part 2' Almost Reaches The All-Time Gross-Out Pantheon

    Is Tom Six a filmmaker? Is Tom Six a storyteller? No, at this point, you’ll have to conclude he is neither of these things. What he is represents something maybe more honest, more pure: he’s a provocateur. In making “The Human Centipede: First Sequence,” Six took a memorably deranged subject of medi...

    NOBODY'S BUSINESS BUT THE TURK'S #4: Bruce Robinson's WITHNAIL AND I sticks it to Baby boomers

    “No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;Am an attendant lord, one that will doTo swell a progress, start a scene or two,Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,Deferential, glad to be of use,Politic, cautious, and meticulous;Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;At times, indeed, almost ridiculous—Almost, at times, the Fool.”— The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S.
