Mandy, Joe and Brian

In The Wall Street Journal this week, I interviewed Mandy Patinkin for my "House Call" column in the Mansion section (go here). Mandy talked about growing up in Chicago, the reason he hated school and why he lowers his voice when playing Saul Berenson on Showtime's Homeland series, which returns for its final season on  Sunday (February 9).

From combat to concerts, Los Angeles-based composer John Beal has seen (and done) it all

John Beal has had a unique life. The 72-year-old Southern California native is an award-winning and world renowned film composer and conductor and a decorated combat U.S. Marine Corps Vietnam War veteran. He’s composed the music for more than 2,000 movie trailers, worked with EDM artist Deadmau5 on his 2018 album, “Where’s the Drop?,” and the unlikely duo presented those songs live during a pair of shows at The Wiltern in Los Angeles last year.

Exit Lines: “Moulin Rouge!”

The camera doesn’t lie–while it may be a publicity still, the photo above is exactly what greets you when you enter the Hirschfeld for Moulin Rouge! The Musical! The former home of Kinky Boots is kicking up its skirts for the latest movie-into-musical, and the wonder is why it took 18 years. Baz Luhrmann’s Oscar-winning hit is a stage natural that fits right into the snugly sinuous theater, elephant and windmills and all. Moulin Rouge! (2001) didn’t invent the jukebox musical, but it cleverly re...

(Not So) Famous Firsts – Ryan Coogler’s Fruitvale Station

Ryan Coogler has only directed three feature films, but he’s already attained the success very few filmmakers ever attain in their careers. Coogler not only revived a dead franchise for a new generation (Creed, which made people remember the Rocky series wasn’t always meant to be American Cold War propaganda) and has scored one of the biggest artistic successes of the most popular genre in the world (Black Panther, the first Marvel film nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.) He’s made a star out o...

What Pianist Donald Shirley Was Really Like

Music writer David Hadju says that though the musician bore some resemblance to Mahershala Ali’s Oscar-winning portrait of him in the movie Green Book, there was a lot more to the man – including this exchange: “I asked him how he would feel about being portrayed on screen. ‘Damn foolishness,’ he said. ‘I want nothing to do with it!’ – The New York Times

André Previn And The Houston Symphony Were Not A Match Made In Heaven

The year was 1966. “It seemed full of promise. Houston, the vibrant, growing city that had become the center of manned spaceflight and medicine, and André Previn, the wunderkind Oscar winner who toiled in the world of jazz and classical music.” Then came the drop in ticket sales, and the disastrous tour. – Houston Chronicle

'Diamonds for Breakfast' Aims for the Family Jewels

None It's one thing for Kino Lorber to unearth and refurbish forgotten cinematic obscurities, often previously unreleased on disc, and it's another level entirely to debut movies that have never even been released in US theatres. (So how can the package claim a PG rating? That's another mystery.) And thus, out of the blue, we have Diamonds for Breakfast , a caper completely unheard of even to most die-hard American caper buffs. On the lighter side of escapism, this particular heist caper hail...

If there's ever a time to ensure your public-speaking skills are on point, it's Oscars night.

20 movies to see at the Red Bull Music Festival LA film series

In the late 1970s, when punk rock still seemed dangerous – no, it’s true, kids, you can ask your mom and dad – the venerable old Ukrainian Cultural Center in East Hollywood was one of the few places in Los Angeles willing to host shows for bands such as Black Flag and Bad Brains, the Minutemen and the Circle Jerks. These days it’s home to tamer events like the centennial of the late great Ukrainian-American actor Volodymyr Palahniuk – you may know him as Oscar-winning actor Jack Palance – or the...

Richard, Rufus and Chick

Richard and I talked about his early years growing up with Karen and how they became America's top pop group. I've been a big Carpenters fan since the early 1970s and...

Pawel Pawlikowski's 'Cold War' Is a Lustrous, Slyly Subversive Melodrama

None There's a true love guiding Cold War, Pawel Pawlikowski's first film since 2015's Oscar-winning Ida. The truth isn't in the depth of the emotion, though, but in its blemished sincerity; it's a story about two lovers who stay involved, but not necessarily together, for 15 years, and who never truly convince each other (or us, as viewers) that love itself is enough. The film, set in 1950s Europe, is extravagant but unsentimental, and never strays far from the stark realities of wartime. Tha...

When music takes us between pain and peace: Dimension Series mixes
