Kyle Mayers and why sometimes a great entrance is enough

It may have passed you by, but they made a Jesus Quintana film a year or so ago. It isn’t very good. That’s a shame but it doesn’t really matter because sometimes an entrance is all you need. If you haven’t seen The Big Lebowski, the Jesus Quintana scene – and really, there’s only one – is quite the thing. The first we see is a purple knee and a hand sporting a weird-arsed bowling glove contraption. The camera pans down to show this man tying his shoelaces. He has huge chunky rings on th...

Watch: 'Cruz and Hawley' star in 'Love and Marriage' (another great parody by Bette Midler)

Last week the great Bette Midler teamed up with Meidas Touch to sing "Goodbye, Donnie!" (a "Hello, Dolly" parody). I thought it was a one-off, but here she is again with "Cruz & Hawley." Sung to TV's Love & Marriage's theme song of the same name, this parody features, of course, Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley as "conductors on the treason trolley." — Read the rest

‘Southland Tales’ Director Richard Kelly Revisits His Infamous Cult Curiosity [Interview]

Southland Tales debuted almost 15 years ago at the Cannes Film festival. All of these years later, love it or hate it, the Richard Kelly film remains something movie fans keep talking about. The conversation around the ambitious science fiction film continues as Arrow Films has released a limited edition Blu-Ray, including the infamous “Cannes cut,” which runs longer than the theatrical version. This version remains unfinished, without all the effects work complete, but nonetheless, Kelly’s pop...

Bette Midler Slams Republican Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley in Withering Parody Video

Bette Midler Sings ‘Goodbye Donnie’ in Comic Farewell-Trump Video

As anyone who follows her on Twitter knows, Bette Midler is no fan of now-former President Trump.

Donnie and Joe Emerson’s superb love song “Baby” is even more romantic on this red, heart-shaped vinyl. Recorded for the brothers’ album Dreamin’ Wild, in 1977, the song finally received the attention and admiration it so deserved 33 years later. Now the album’s standout song, the lo-fi, soulful ballad, has been covered countless times, but the original is available on this kitschy limited edition seven-inch.

Our Favorite Minor and Supporting Characters From the Past Year in Cinema

You know that famous quote about how there are no small parts? As we barrel deeper into Oscar season, it’s getting even easier to let the truly sublime minor characters from 2019 slip our minds. The goal of this list is to highlight the performances from the past year that sailed completely under the radar, the characters who had just an incredibly small amount of screentime but deserve recognition. As with most “Best Of” lists, this is subjective, so if anything it should inspire you to look ...

‘Magnolia’ at 20: Paul Thomas Anderson’s Masterpiece Still Blossoms with Pure Emotion

The magnolia is a perennial flower: its recurring bloom signals spring’s arrival and the bark of the tree it grows from can be used to treat anxiety and cancer. Magnolia Boulevard is a street that runs through Burbank, California—the media capital of the world, just miles from Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles. Neither of these things is explained outright in Magnolia, writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson’s 1999 opus, but even without awareness of them, the viewer begins to form an intuitive u...
