Links for shut-ins

Here in California, we’re closing in on four weeks of shelter-in-place. Cancellations and closures began even earlier. I’d had tickets to the International Ocean Film Festival, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, the San Francisco International Film Festival, the San Francisco Ballet’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” and Loot at the Aurora Theatre—all canceled. (The silent film festival will take place in November instead of April.) I’d signed up for a class on the musical-theater genius Stephen...

The best LGBTQ online entertainment

Before social distancing became the new normal, April was chock-full of major LGBTQ events, and while the coronavirus has caused massive cancellations (RIP Black Party 2020!), queer community leaders aren’t letting COVID-19 get in the way of their spring flings. LGBTQ outlets around the world have created virtual community centers, concert halls, and dance clubs to combat the isolation caused by the pandemic, and the options for connecting seem endless. The only problem? With a wealth of no...

What do ‘Brews Brothers,’ ‘Dave,’ and ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ have in common? TV maestro Jeff Schaffer

TV producer-director-writer Jeff Schaffer isn’t very good at saying no. When his writer-producer brother Greg Schaffer came to him with an idea for a TV series to lampoon the burgeoning craft beer boom, Schaffer, who a decade earlier created the fantasy football-themed comedy “The League” with his wife Jackie, was an immediate yes. The first season of “Brews Brothers” created by these TV brothers lands Friday, April 10 on Netflix. Dodgers Rich Hill, #44, was the starting pitcher for the Dodg...

‘Natalie Wood: What Remains Behind’ Trailer: An Intimate Portrait of the Late Actress

In 1981, Natalie Wood died at the age of 43. While her drowning death was initially ruled accidental, mystery still surrounds the event, and there are plenty of theories that foul play was involved. As a result, Wood’s death has overshadowed her life, but perhaps the new documentary Natalie Wood: What Remains Behind will change that. The doc sets out to cover Wood’s life and career, not her untimely demise, and it’s premiering on HBO next month. Watch the trailer below. Natalie Wood What Re...

Six jazz movies you may not know

The film industry started making jazz-related features as soon as synchronized sound came in, in 1927: “I’m gonna sing it jazzy,” Al Jolson’s Jack Robin optimistically declares in the pioneering talkie The Jazz Singer, before taking off on Irving Berlin’s “Blue Skies.” (He gets closer to the jazzy mark whistling a quasi-improvised chorus of “Toot Toot Tootsie.”) Since then there have been dozens of movies focusing on jazz, or at least working it into the main plot.Such jazz stories have never be...
