    Movie Palaces Come Alive Again

    There is no thrill to compare with seeing a classic movie in a great movie theater. For twenty-four years, the Los Angeles Conservancy has hosted a month-long series called Last Remaining Seats, showing vintage films in the city’s great movie palaces, most of which are located on Broadway downtown.

    Interview | Pop Art: Lisa Cholodenko Aims for the Mainstream with "The Kids Are All Right"

    Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll -- while all three appear to lesser and greater degrees in the work of indie auteur Lisa Cholondenko, what's always constant is a keen insight into the complexity and fragility of our closest relationships. From her breakout debut "High Art" (1998), a dance of seduction and power between two women, to "Laurel Canyon" (2002), which dissects varying familial and sexual triangles, to this year's Sundance hit "The Kids Are All Right," in which lesbian moms struggle to keep their family intact, Cholodenko's characters express profound multi-dimensional lives with a single gaze.

    Fincher Eyes Salander Candidate Yo-Landi Vi$$er, Future of Product Placement

    - David Fincher is a fan of South African band Die Antwoord's leading mini-lady Yo-Landi Vi$$er, and Vulture's sources indicate she has the exact look and mannerisms that Fincher wants for Lisbeth Salander in his remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Die Antwoord's representation, William Morris Endeavor, told Vulture that it wasn't clear whether Fincher was sincerely interested in Yo-Landi playing the part or if she is just his prime reference point.
