When David Bowie Played Andy Warhol in Julian Schnabel’s Film, Basquiat

Many actors have played Andy Warhol over the years, but not as many as you might think. Crispin Glover played him in The Doors, Jared Harris played him in I Shot Andy Warhol, Guy Pearce played him in Factory Girl, and Bill Hader played him in Men in Black III, but with a twist: he is actually an agent who is so bad as his cover role as an artist, he’s “painting soup cans and bananas, for Christ sakes!” On television John Cameron Mitchell has acted the Warhol role in Vinyl, and Evan Peter...

‘Fear Street’ Spoiler Review: Netflix’s Horror Trilogy Mines Nostalgia While Looking to the Future

Netflix’s Fear Street trilogy, a three-week spree of crimes against innocent Shadysiders, ended on Friday. It’s possibly the biggest slasher-movie event since the 2018 Halloween broke box-office records for its franchise and production company. There have been other slasher flicks since then; the bloody body-swap Freaky comes to mind as one genre torch-bearer, seen mostly on VOD late last year. However, with its staggered release pattern — instant summer sequels, now available to stream! — Fear...

David Bowie’s Ignorant and Ironic Name Choice

David Jones (aka Dave Jay, aka David Bowie), was the Kon-Rads’ vocalist and Saxman in 1963.   David Jones had to change his name because “Davy Jones” was already being used by the shortest member of The Monkees.  Bowie named himself after the American pioneer woodsman Jim Bowie of Bowie Knife and Alamo fame. It was an ill-informed choice.  The Alamo, after all, was about white American interlopers fighting to secede from Mexico in order to preserve slavery.  Mexico had banned slavery a...

‘Fear Street’ Director Leigh Janiak on Picking Perfect Needledrops, Crafting Kills, and Writing a Queer Love Story [Interview]

Netflix’s Fear Street movie trilogy, based on the young adult novels by R.L. Stine, are an exciting excercise in telling a compelling story through three shorter stories. The first film, Fear Street Part 1: 1994 is a hard hit of nostalgia for anyone who grew up in the Scream era. It introduces us to the town of Shadyside, where the people are cursed and everyone’s pretty miserable, but teenager Deena (Kiana Madeira) wants more for herself. She also wants more for her girlfriend, Sam (Olivia Wel...

How the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Prince and more became photographic icons

For Gered Mankowitz, a rock ‘n’ roll photographer in England in the ’60s, it was a constant fight to have the pictures he made of artists such as the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and the Small Faces taken seriously. “It was the packaging, it was something to knock off, it was a glossy to be given to a magazine,” Mankowitz says on a recent video call. “And yet I and dozens of my contemporaries were trying so hard to make the best of it, to try and do something special, stretch the genre, and give...

Word of the week: NIL

There’s lower-case nil, a contraction of Latin nihil, which means “nothing,” especially in British and Commonwealth sports scores and doctor’s orders (“nil by mouth,” also the title of a 1987 British film directed by Gary Oldman) . Then there’s the acronym NIL, which in the world of U.S. collegiate athletics stands for “name, image, likeness.” And that NIL is a very big something. Until recently, college athletes in the U.S. were prohibited by the National Collegiate Athletic Association...

Rock sideman Earl Slick: ‘Bowie had gone levels into insanity’

He played through extreme drug-taking on Bowie’s Station to Station, and with Yoko Ono weeks after Lennon’s death. The guitarist explains why he’s great at backing legends – and terrible at selling timesharesIt’s not surprising that Earl Slick was in the middle of a tour when the first Covid lockdown began. The guitarist is, by his own account, “the biggest roadhog on the planet”, one of rock’s most celebrated sidemen: his association with David Bowie stretched over five decades; he has played w...

Biden’s court-reform commission hears from experts on term limits and judicial review

The debate over Supreme Court reform continued Wednesday as a White House commission heard testimony on a broad range of reform proposals, including adding seats to the court, shrinking its influence, increasing its transparency, and limiting the tenure of the justices. The all-day hearing was the second meeting of the Presidential Commission on the Supreme Court of the United States, a bipartisan, 36-member commission that Biden appointed in response to calls from some Democrats to expand the ...

Netflix is taking a stab at R.L. Stine’s ‘Fear Street’ horror books for three new films

R.L. Stine has cranked out more than 150 books under his “Fear Street” banner, and these mass-appeal horror books for teens have sold more than 80 million copies. When Leigh Janiak was given the reins to bring “Fear Street” to film back in 2017, however, the path forward was dark, scary and unclear. Janiak, who had directed one low-budget indie horror film and a few episodes of horror TV, was hired to make a series of three films that could be binged and released back-to-back. There were no o...

David Bowie on Why It’s Crazy to Make Art–and We Do It Anyway (1998)

Art is useless, Oscar Wilde declared. Yet faced with, say, a painting by Kandinsky, film by Malick, or great work by David Bowie, we may feel it “impossible to escape the impression,” as Sigmund Freud wrote, “that people commonly use false standards of measurement — that they seek power, success and wealth for themselves and admire them in others, and that they underestimate what is of true value in life.” However ambiguously, art can move us beyond the selfish boundaries of the ego to c...

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...

50 years later, Apple+ offers a fresh look at ‘1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything’

Think about the year 1971 and some things come immediately to mind: the war in Vietnam. the presidency of Richard M. Nixon and, well, after that, the answers can begin to splinter off into a hundred different directions. Danielle Peck, one of the producers and directors of the docuseries “1971: The Year That Music Changed Everything” knows that the date in the title isn’t an obvious marker in popular music’s journey through the 20th century. But Peck, director-producer Asif Kapadia, and the rest...

Gillmor Gang: Walk the Dinosaur

Clubhouse hosted another excellent conversation between Josh Constine and Facebook’s audio czar Fidji Simo. The format continues to sparkle, as I was once again forced to choose between MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O’Donnell and just plain audio. JPA won going away. The talk was crisp and the strategies thick with optimism about the creator economy. Monetization, priming the emergent pump, etc. If this were the Gold Rush, it would be blue skies ahead for picks and shovels and pans. It re...
