    Review and Roundup: In Defense of Paul Schrader's Misunderstood 'The Canyons'

The only other big publicity came courtesy of an slightly painful “American Psycho” parody with reality star Scott...

    Bret Easton Ellis Profusely Apologizes to Kathryn Bigelow Over Sexist “Zero Dark Thirty” Tweet

    Bret Easton Ellis Throws a Misogynistic Hissy Fit Because 'Zero Dark Thirty' Director Kathryn Bigelow is a Woman

    It's almost not worth mentioning, because sexism from a misogynist really doesn't deserve any attention-- but Bret Easton Ellis attempting to degrade Kathryn Bigelow and her latest directorial effort--which happens to be kicking ass on the awards circuit--is an embarassment (for him)...
