Jarvis Cocker – “Aline” (Christophe Cover)

Way back in February of 2020, the first trailer for Wes Anderson’s new movie The French Dispatch hit the internet, and it featured a piece of music that was both familiar and unfamiliar. The that played at the end of the trailer was a bit of a standard — “Aline,” a huge 1965 hit for the French singer Christophe — but the recording was different. As it turns out, that voice belonged to the former Pulp leader Jarvis Cocker. And now, with the long-delayed theatrical release of The French Exit loomi...

‘Aline’ Review: Valérie Lemercier’s Sappy Céline Dion Cover Lacks the Range of the Artist It Celebrates

You know who does a really great Céline Dion? Kathy Griffin. Typically withering in her impressions, the comedian clearly has a soft spot for the vocal superstar. She gets the singer’s French-Canadian accent, the unconventional appeal of her open-book private life and that fabulously operatic body language — one hand gesturing toward heaven, the other […]

Kooky Celine Dion Drama ‘Aline’ Brings ‘Titanic’ Homage and Leopard Pants to Cannes — and Leaves People in Tears

Celine Dion did not make the trip to 74th Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of “Aline,” a French musical drama inspired by the life of the Quebecois superstar. But if she’d attended the premiere on Tuesday night in the South of France, it’s hard to know if she’d be flattered or horrified. The most […]

Rebroadcast, Ep 180: Bad Teachers, Good Advice and the Default Male

In this rebroadcast, Aline Brosh McKenna joins John and Craig to discuss how movies featuring good mentors (Dead Poet’s Society, To Sir with Love) differ from films with bad mentors (Whiplash, The Devil Wears Prada). It’s not just that the teachers are bad guys; rather, the stories are structured completely differently. We also discuss the “default male problem,” especially how it relates to comedy and the cleanest version of a joke. John asks Craig and Aline about some ethical quandaries he’s ...

First French Trailer for Peculiar, Unofficial Celine Dion Biopic 'Aline'

"The venues may be full but I sing for him, Mom." Gaumont has unveiled the first trailer for a strange new biopic titled Aline, also known as Aline Dieu! or Aline: The Voice of Love. This is a film about the life of famous Canadian singer Celine Dion, but because they couldn't figure out how to do it with her name, they decided to change her name to something else - Aline Dieu, which just translates to "Aline God" in French. It's also premiering at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival in the Out of...

‘Aline’ Trailer: This Unofficial Céline Dion Biopic Can Use Her Songs But Not Her Name

Meet young Céline Dion. Or, actually, meet Aline Dieu. She’s a musical prodigy with the voice of a songbird, who was plucked out of obscurity from her hometown of Quebec, Canada, and goes on to become an international superstar. It’s a story that will sound familiar to fans of Canadian songstress Céline Dion, with a soundtrack that will sound even more familiar — it’s full of some of Dion’s most beloved and famous songs. But the musical romance Aline is about some woman named…Aline. Yes, that’s...

The world's oldest Nobel Prize winner, a 96-year-old physicist, says his new invention will give everyone in the world clean, cheap energy

At 96, Arthur Ashkin is the oldest person to ever be awarded a Nobel Prize.  Ashkin won half the 2018 prize in physics for his role in developing technology that makes very small beings "levitate" using only light. He did that work at Bell Labs in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. His discovery spurred the invention of optical tweezers, which have been used to stretch DNA and invent a life-saving malaria test, among other medical uses. But the Nobel Laureate says he's not done inventing yet — his lifel...

Rich Archbold: The late Bruce Mulhearn, super salesman learned big lesson early in life

As a young, poor boy selling bleach door-to-door in the coal-mining town of Newcastle in northern England, Bruce Mulhearn had many of those doors slammed in his face.

R. Crumb Illustrates Jean-Paul Sartre’s Nausea: Existentialism Meets Underground Comics

Sartre’s novel Nausea introduced his philosophical view as a form of illness to a WWII readership. “Nausea is existence revealing itself—and experience is not pleasant to see,” he wrote in his own summary of his first book, published in 1938. The novel’s dramatization of Historian Roquentin' s crisis presents a case of existential sickness as mostly involuntary. Though published before his many Marxist books and essays, Nausea connects the malaise to a certain class experience. “I have no troub...
