Why Laura Branigan’s ‘Gloria’ Is the Perfect Song to an On-Screen Crime Scheme

Twice in the last month, the 1982 Laura Branigan hit “Gloria” has been used as a key plot device: to soundtrack the maniacal trance of a person about to commit a major act of violence. In “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” Darren Criss, who plays serial killer Andrew Cunanan, sings along to […]

Review: 'I, Tonya' Brilliantly Captures Darkly Comical Moment in Time

A closeup shot of Tonya Harding's skate crushing a lit cigarette serves as a visual representation of the figure skater as a whole in I, Tonya, a biography of her life and the events that led to her controversial end in the sport. Harding was a force in the skating world: unrefined, rebellious, and unapologetic but with a raw talent that world had never seen before or since. It makes sense Harding's tenure in the figure skating world ended in controversy. I, Tonya, directed by Craig Gillespie,...

How the scary mom in ‘I, Tonya’ was written just for Allison Janney

For five seasons, Allison Janney has been playing the unapologetic Bonnie on CBS’s “Mom.” On the show, it’s obvious that Bonnie has not been a very good parent to her grown daughter, Christy (Anna Faris), over the years. However, Bonnie is June Cleaver compared to the woman Janney portrays in Craig Gillespie’s dark comedy  “I, Tonya,” which just opened in limited release. The seven-time Emmy winner plays LaVona Golden, who in the film is depicted as the ruthless and abusive mother of scandal-rid...

5 great new movies to see this weekend

The early weeks of December are considered to be movie dead zones, as people presumably focus on Christmas shopping and holiday parties instead. I urge you, though, to carve out some time at Southern California theaters this weekend.

'I, Tonya': Sympathy for a Tabloid Villain

"This is bullshit. I never did this," Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie) assures viewers in the meta-comedy I, Tonya just after she is seen unloading a blast of buckshot at her fleeing husband, Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan). Not that most of us would blame her. At that point, we already saw Jeff beat her for saying the wrong thing, or just for being there. Before that there was a long stretch of verbal and emotional abuse from LaVona (Allison Janney), Tonya's cold-eyed villai...
