Quentin Tarantino Joins Wes Anderson for ‘Isle of Reservoir Dogs’

Six dogs with pseudonyms, and each forced to overcome their instinct of stranger danger on an island trash heap, try to carry out the perfect robbery o...

As next Sunday’s 91st Academy Awards broadcast looms, we’re being reminded that the Oscars organization: Tried to marginalize the likes of “Black Panther” in a proposed new Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film category; Couldn’t talk anyone into hosting their par...

'Wind River' and Harvey Weinstein's broken promise to Native women and children in Indian Country

Elizabeth Olsen and Graham Greene star in Wind River. THE PLAN was that every time a person watched 'Wind River,' a portion of royalties from the movie would go to The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, which works to “enhance the safety of Native women and their children.” But NIWRC says it never got any of the promised funds, and may never get a dime. “So what went wrong?,” writes Elena Saavedra Buckley at High Country News. “Harvey Weinstein.” Great story, awful story.

#MeToo Is A Story For Women To Tell, Not Guys Like David Mamet

Mamet’s upcoming play Bitter Wheat centers on a very Harvey Weinstein-like studio head, and Steven Berkoff is preparing a one-man show about Weinstein himself. Lyn Gardner is not having it: “Because women own this story. Not a couple of middle-aged playwrights whose recent hits have been sparse, and who are fascinated by male ‘monsters’ and want to give them more stage time. They have had quite enough.” — The Stage

Changes to sexual harassment laws could open California employers to increased liability

Environmental regulations, building codes, changing tax laws, minimum wage hikes … These are the kinds of the things California employers keep track of. They can now add new sexual harassment laws to the list. New laws that took effect Jan. 1 under the Fair Employment and Housing Act will make it easier for workers to bring sexual harassment lawsuits against their employers before a jury. Legal experts, including Jesse Maddox, say businesses are going to have a tougher time settling those action...

‘Untouchable’ Review: Harvey Weinstein’s Accusers Speak Out Against the Disgraced Mogul [Sundance]

My first thought about Untouchable, the new documentary about Hollywood mega-producer and sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, was that it didn’t bring anything new to the table. But that’s not entirely true – the film reiterates every detail you already know from the key reports that have been published about him, but the true power of this movie (and for me, the only reason it should exist at all) comes in its interviews with Weinstein’s victims, and the stories from these women are just as hear...
