Blue Bayou Review: An Urgent Immigrant Story Told With A Thoughtful, But Heavy Hand

"Where are you from?"It's a question that immediately puts Justin Chon's Antonio LeBlanc on edge, and which he avoids answering in his uneasy job interview in "Blue Bayou," Chon's third directorial effort. Antonio was born in Korea, but the only home he's ever known is the Louisiana backwaters. Adopted at three years old by white parents, Antonio spent his childhood jumping from foster home to foster home, until he built a family for himself with his loving, maybe all-too forgiving wife Kathy (a...

Justin Chon And Alicia Vikander Search For The Definition Of Home In Blue Bayou [Interview]

Justin Chon has come a long way since he wowed Sundance audiences with his 2017 film "Gook." The writer and director of "Blue Bayou" is many years removed from being "that funny Asian guy" from "Twilight" who directed and starred in the provocative black-and-white drama about two Korean-American brothers on the first day of the 1992 L.A. race riots. It wasn't long until Chon had firmly established himself as one of the exciting Asian-American indie filmmakers to watch, following up with the 2019...

There’s a classic set of live concert performances coming to radio and your smartphone, the tremendously accurate recreation of Mellow Sound KNX-FM – now KCBS-FM, 93.1 – that was so popular in the 1970s and part of the ‘80s, has another special on the way. Saturday at 5 p.m. and again Sunday at noon PT, the popular internet station will present 90 minutes of Linda Ronstadt recorded live “over space and time,” says station spokesman and producer Douglas Brown. What he means is that it’s not one concert on one date but a combination of her best performances — and those o...

How 1974-era LA transformed music, movies and pop culture in ‘Rock Me On The Water’

Writer Ronald Brownstein had a pop culture epiphany while driving home from a political gathering at producer Norman Lear‘s house. It struck Brownstein that Lear’s groundbreaking shows like “All in the Family” arrived on TV just as movie classics “The Godfather” and “Chinatown” hit theaters and the Los Angeles music scene of Joni Mitchell and the Eagles flourished on the radio and in record stores. It was all here in one place, at one moment. “I remember thinking on the way home, like, wait a mi...

‘Joker,’ ‘Jojo Rabbit’ and ‘No Time to Die’ Won Grammys Over the Weekend

The 63rd Grammy Awards were held last night on CBS, awarding the best achievements in music. Within the plethora of winners, there are always a handful of awards that we’re interested in due to our love for the soundtracks and scores from our favorite movies.

To the US government, I'm an 'alien of extraordinary ability.' But the designation says more about America's unequal immigration system than it does about me.

Sam Corbin, author of this piece. Mindy Tucker On its surface, the O-1 "Alien of Extraordinary Ability" visa provides an ideal pathway to foreign artists looking to work in the United States. But the visa's eligibility requirements demand prior achievements and national renown, making it largely inaccessible to emerging and diverse talent. Elective participation in a country's immigration system should be an incentive, not a deterrent. Sam Corbin is a culture and humor writer based...

2021 Grammy Nominees Include ‘Joker’, ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’, ‘Eurovision Song Contest’, and More

The 63rd annual Grammy Award nominations were unveiled this morning, and since the music industry’s biggest award show is on a different timetable than awards shows like the Oscars or the Emmys, it can often feel like the Grammys are extremely far behind when it comes to pop culture. Case in point: composer Hildur Guðnadóttir‘s Oscar-winning score for Joker, which was initially released over a year ago, is nominated in the Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media category. But there are still a f...
