By Dan DeLuca There’s a scene in “The Sparks Brothers,” director Edgar Wright’s movie about the hugely influential art-pop duo Ron and Russell Mael, in which the siblings are asked why they had never before agreed to do a documentary film about their fabulously unpredictable 50-year-plus career. “We didn’t want to do the standard documentary full of talking heads,” says Ron Mael, the brother with the mustache who’s the band’s principal songwriter. His singing sibling Russell concurs: “It would b...

Sex? Check. Drugs? Yes. Rock ‘n’ roll? Obviously. Regrets? Michael Des Barres has none.

Michael Des Barres never made plans, but always knew what he was doing. “No plans — instinct everything,” says the 73-year-old English-born actor and rock singer, who landed in Los Angeles in the ’70s and never left. “What I’m trying to say is that I’ve never thought anything through. I’ve just done it.” Des Barres is talking ostensibly because a documentary on his life, “Michael Des Barres: Who Do You Want Me To Be?” arrives on home video this month. “I leave school – this abusive, absurd, crim...

‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’ at 25: An Oral History of Disney’s Darkest Animated Classic

In the mid-1990s, the possibilities were endless for Walt Disney Feature Animation.
