This Week In Trailers: The Brink, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, One Nation Under Stress, Watergate

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we revisit the 2018 midterms, understand why we’re dying younger, give in to an incredible vision, and dissect a crime that took dow...

Bannon Gives ‘War Horse’ Pelosi A 10/10 Job Performance Rating

Nancy Pelosi has an unexpected fan. Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist, graded the House speaker a 10 out of 10 on her job performance so far in a clip of the show “The Circus.” “She’s a war horse,” he said. “For what she’s trying to accomplish, I think Pelosi’s done a good job.” He applauded her recent impeachment comments as the perfect way to step back unless the political winds shift and the American public gets on board with ousting President Donald Trump from office. Watc...

Ross Won’t Disclose What White House Convos He Had About Census Citizenship

Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday declined to elaborate on what conversations he may have had with the White House about adding a Census citizenship question —  beyond detailing his previously-known spring 2017 phone call with then-Trump advisor Steve Bannon. House Oversight Democrats sought to grill Ross on any White House conversations, given that his testimony in front of Congress last year suggested he had none. At Thursday’s hearing, Ross said that any hypothetical White House d...

Matt Taibbi on Chris Christie's "agonizing" memoir: "an epic literary self-own"

Chris Christie's got a new memoir, "Let Me Finish," and Matt Taibbi (previously), Rolling Stone's most incandescent and relentless writer, has done us all the mercy of reading Christie so we don't have to. As Taibbi describes it, Christie's lack of self-awareness has led him to publish a book where he tries to come off as a tough guy, but ends up revealed as a spineless chump whose greed and cupidity made him the perfect patsy for a series of sadistic head-games played by Trump that are so ...

How Did Roger Stone Know About The Access Hollywood Tape?

Roger Stone’s indictment last week laid out juicy, inside details about his alleged attempts to contact Wikileaks, including the tantalizing allegation that the Trump campaign directed him to do so. Facing criminal charges hasn’t stopped the longtime GOP operative from getting caught up in a catfight with conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi, over conversations the two had in the hours before Trump’s now-notorious Access Hollywood tape was released. But what seems to be yet another bizarre Stone-...
