Director Ryan White reveals the double-edged sword of queer representation in ‘Visible: Out on TV’

Director Ryan White Ryan White doesn’t stop. The documentarian behind The Case Against 8 and The Keepers has enjoyed two consecutive Sundance Film Festivals with new movies having their premiere. Last year, we chatted with White about his acclaimed documentary Ask Dr. Ruth. His next feature, Assassins, comes out later this year. For the moment, though, White is focused on an epic television event. We mean that in two senses of the word. As produced by Wilson Cruz & Wanda Sykes, Visible: Out o...

Trump Proudly Tweets ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Clip That’s, Uh, Mocking Him

What’s that saying about forests and trees Contrary to what many people may believe, working in comedy under the Trump administration isn’t like being a cartoon prospector who just found a hill full of softball-sized gold nuggets. The Don isn’t a bottomless well of material — quite the opposite! Sure, in the early days of his presidency he provided almost more fodder than people knew what to do with, but those days are behind us. That’s not to say Trump has become less of a buffoon while...

Behold, Three Minutes Of David Saying, “Oh My GOD”

IMDb Thank you, Internet, for this gift Remember last week when I said that I could listen to David Rose of Schitt’s Creek saying, “Oh my god,” in disgust all day long? Well, apparently some wishes can be granted.

Counting Down the 10 Scariest and Most Evil Children in Horror Movies

You don’t have to be a childless millennial at Disney World to be afraid of kids. There’s a whole time-honored sub-genre of horror that plays upon pedophobia, the fear of children. It’s yielded ghost girls aplenty and more than one son of Satan. Writer-directors Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala ventured into pedophobic territory with their 2014 Austrian film, Goodnight Mommy. It’s been a long road to the release of their new feature, The Lodge, which premiered at Sundance last year and earned s...

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...

‘Come Away’ Review: A Delightful Origin Story of Peter Before Pan and Alice Before Wonderland [Sundance 2020]

When animation directors make the jump to directing live-action, the transition can be fraught. Just ask Andrew Stanton, whose live-action debut, John Carter, was a huge bomb for Disney several years ago. Thankfully though, Brenda Chapman, the director of Prince of Egypt and Pixar’s Oscar-winning Brave, successfully makes the leap with Come Away, a delightful fairytale that imagines what might have happened if Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland were siblings before they became the characters we ...
