    GREY MATTERS: One Soul Separated: THE BALLAD OF GENESIS P-ORRIDGE AND LADY JAYE

    Like high romantics everywhere, the lovebirds named Genesis P-Orridge and Lady Jaye felt as if they were really one soul separated into two bodies. Unlike everyone else, they did something about it.

    GREY MATTERS: Chaos Is Here To Stay

    When a movie turns into the biggest film that isn’t a sequel or a remake in Earth’s history, you can bet that Hollywood is going to figure out what made that film such a billion dollar baby. That movie is Gary Ross’s "The Hunger Games," and the most easily utilized element of that film is something...

    THE HUNGER GAMES: The Conversation

    Now that "The Hunger Games," the new film adaptation of the first book in Suzanne Collins's hyper-popular young adult book series, has raked in $68 million dollars on its opening day alone, it seems especially prudent to take a somewhat harder look at the film, both as a stand-alone work and as an a...

    GREY MATTERS: A Defense of BATTLE: LOS ANGELES

    After the first time my interest felt forbidden, something to not share in smart company. But with my second viewing three months later, I realized my reaction wasn’t just a quirk of mood or contrarian impulse, or the film version of one of those inexplicable crushes that make your friends smile pol...

    GREY MATTERS: The lunatics are in the hall! It's the top 10 films about mental illness

    It’s been a good few years for crazy. "Homeland’s" made bipolar disorder a household ailment yet again. Sean Durkin’s "Martha Marcy May Marlene" located the goal posts between delusion and reality in its brainwashed hero’s mind and promptly moved them repeatedly (just like in real life!). And whi...

    GREY MATTERS: LOST GIRL is goofy, sexy entertainment, in a BUFFY vein

    "Lost Girl" is no big deal, and yet, for me, on sheer level of affection, it’s up there with the ludicrously better "Luck," and I can barely wait for each episode to air. So WTF, right? Looked at on paper (or screen) my affection becomes even more baffling. It’s yet another televisual offering wh...

    GREY MATTERS: WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN is disjointed and brilliant and baffling

    Nothing gets a horror fan more ticked off than a director with airs claiming her new film isn’t "really" horror but actually a character study exploring the deep psychological recesses of blah blah blah. In the case of "We Need to Talk About Kevin" director Lynne Ramsay, you’ve got a fancy Scot arth...

    GREY MATTERS: DOCTOR WHO's sublime study of grief, death and transfiguration continues to captivate its viewers

    On a recent episode of "The Graham Norton Show," the genial goofball host was plainly delighted to have Karen Gillan—known worldwide as Amy Pond, the spirited, ginger-haired companion of The Doctor on "Doctor Who"—on his guest couch. Of course, Norton couldn’t pass up commenting on a rumor that ...

    GREY MATTERS: HOMELAND and the art of playing crazy

    As a certified crazy person, I’m here to tell you that either vampires burn in daylight or they don’t. I’ll accept no wiggle room on this. Anything less and you’ll quickly lose my suspension of disbelief. To get what I’m babbling about, this way, please. I’m talking about "Homeland," which is, by th...
