President Trump’s Take on Parasite Echoes an Old Debate Over the Role of Non-American Films at the Oscars

Nostalgia has been a regular theme at rallies for President Donald Trump since before he was elected — he is, after all, the man who wants to make America great again. On Thursday night, at a rally in Colorado Springs, Trump directed that sentiment at the movie industry, dismissing the South Korean film Parasite, which won this year’s Oscar for Best Picture. “We’ve got enough problems with South Korea with trade; on top of it, they give it the best movie of the year,” Trump said. “Let’s get...

What’s the state of black film today? These experts explore the range of African-American movie achievements

Melvin Van Peebles had directed a few short films in the late ’50s when he left San Francisco for Hollywood with the goal of trading his day job on a cable car for a career behind the camera. “They said, ‘We don’t need cable car operators as film directors,’” said his son Mario Van Peebles, a second-generation filmmaker, as he introduced a newly restored version of his father’s first feature “The Story of a Three-Day Pass” at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 16. “He said, ‘No,...

‘Parasite’ Distributor Hits Back at Donald Trump After Oscar Win Criticism: “Understandable, He Can’t Read”

Even four years into his term, Donald Trump can’t stop obsessing over Hollywood, this time setting his sights on Oscar winner Parasite. At a Colorado rally this week, the president mocked the South Korean movie’s Best Picture win at this year’s Academy Awards, grousing over the lack of love for Gone With the Wind, a four-hour epic that Trump, who has a famously short attention span, has definitely seen. But Parasite‘s U.S. distributor Neon was quick to hit back at Trump, mocking another thing t...

Hunter S. Thompson died on February 20, 2005, fifteen years ago, and ever since we've been wondering aloud what he would make of the state of the world today.

Pensa Tackles Aluminum Luggage Redesign for Zero Halliburton

Erle P. Halliburton wasn't an industrial designer, but he was both an industrialist and a designer. In the 1930s he traveled to various oil fields in America, implementing the new method of oil well cementing he'd invented; the frequent travel led him to design his own suitcase, which was made from a then-newfangled material called aluminum.The suitcases caught on, and in 1938 Halliburton launched his own company to produce them. Movie star Marlene Dietrich was a fan, and either Halliburton form...

At Sherman Oaks candidates forum: Councilman Ryu attacked for homeless record

Councilman David Ryu was back in his San Fernando Valley wheelhouse at a candidates debate Wednesday but faced the sort of enmity reserved only for incumbents as challengers sharply criticized his response to the district’s ballooning homeless population.
