    Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Auction

    I'm somewhat numb from all the high-end movie-related auctions this year, but one has caught my fancy in a way that Debbie Reynolds’ or even John Wayne’s hasn’t. Even the catalog for the September 13 event at Doyle Gallery in New York is a keeper, because it celebrates ...

    Early NY Times Review Of "Porgy & Bess" Revival Calls It An "Anxious And Confused Production"

    Time flies... the revival opened last night at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, MA, on its way to Broadway run in a few months, despite musical theater god Stephen Sondheim's majestic smack-down of this new revival, for what he feels are extreme reworkings of the original work (read his ...

    Venice '11 Review: Madonna's 'W.E.' Is A Royal Disaster

    Just as news of an actor excitedly announcing that they've got a definitely-not-a-vanity-project album on the way is generally greeted with a reaction somewhere between mockery and outright terror, news of a musician moving into the movies is rarely a good thing.

    'The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)’ Gets October 7 Release Date

    Few people have bothered going back and checking out director Tom Six’s back catalogue since “The Human Centipede (First Sequence)” became a minor cultural and cinematic phenomenon, and this writer is not among them. So perhaps “Gay in Amsterdam” is a masterpiece, but it’s doubtful the director will ever be remembered as anything other than the guy who made those forcible ass-to-mouth horror movies. If you’ve been holding out for the sequel “The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)” (and frankly why aren’t you watching "Tucker & Dale vs Evil" or waiting for Ti West’s “The Innkeepers” or something that seems half-way interesting?) it's time to p...
