Flugennock's Latest'n'Greatest: "Vote Undead"

From DC's anarchist cartoonist, Mike Flugennock: "Vote Undead" http://sinkers.org/stage/?p=2918 Like sands through the hourglass... so are the days of our Jack. DC City Councilman Jack Evans — you will recall — was recently forced to resign his Council seat in disgrace after a wave of scandals including the WMATA Board Of Directors and Colonial Parking. So, slimy Jack — predictably, somehow — has filed to run again for the City Council seat he was recently forced to resign from in...

Annie Murphy Performed ‘A Little Bit Alexis’ Live And It’s EVERYTHING

ALEXIS ROSE FOR COACHELLA 2021 Okay, look, I know that we’ve been covering a lot of Schitt’s Creek content lately, but can you blame us?! Rhetorical question, obviously the answer is no because this show is the SCHITT. (Sorry) Between Johnny’s successful video store empire and motel, Moira’s acting and public service careers, David’s art curation and artisanal store, Alexis was often overlooked and had a hard time finding her own spotlight amongst the rest of her family — and she faded in...

News Post: Crapsmanship

Tycho: Legends of Runeterra is one fork-tine of Riot’s effort to own every genre.  I could put more effort into resisting this force - upon whose banner gleams the very Icon of the Fist - but if they’re all going to be as interesting as their foray into this CCG shit then bring on the FPS and the Airship Syndicate collab and the fighting game and whatever else.  This isn’t some victory lap off League, something to fill a vacuum in Q1.  It’s marbled beef, a hot take on the form that is built for ...

‘The Last Shift’ Review: This Fast Food Drama Bites Off More Than It Can Chew [Sundance 2020]

A good performance from Richard Jenkins can’t save The Last Shift, a languid fast food drama that has aspirations of exploring class and race in middle America, but lacks the tools to effectively do so. Documentary filmmaker Andrew Cohn makes the jump to narrative features here, telling the story of a fast food veteran tasked with training a new hire who possesses a wildly different outlook on life. It has the setup of a heartwarming story in which two mismatched men forge a begrudging respect ...

Rediscovering 'Parasite' in Black & White at the Rotterdam Film Festival

Bong Joon-ho's Parasite is virtually certain to win the Oscar for Best International Film, and it is not out of the running for Best Picture or Best Director, either. It unanimously won Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, and critics has lauded it as the greatest film of an exceptionally strong year, and perhaps even one of the best of the decade. It has brought belated, much-deserved attention to South Korean Cinema. By any measure, it has been a success that has likely exceeded the ...
