The neighborhoods can be found around the world and have, in many ways, made the switch from immigrant communities to full-blown tourist attractions. Chinatowns in places like San Francisco, New York, Chicago, and LA are prime examples. But Chinatowns aren’t limited to what you see in the movies. True Chinatowns also exist, oftentimes in unexpected places like tiny farm towns and French-speaking cities north of the bor...

In a recent segment of his HBO show Last Week Tonight, John Oliver expressed concern over the trend, citing the obvious, Vladimir Putin of Russia and Chinese President-for-Life Xi Jinping, but also Hungary's Viktor Orban, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey, and far-right politician Jair Balsanaro, the new President of Brazil.

‘Serenity’ Director Steven Knight Doesn’t Want to Put His Movies in a Genre [Interview]

Serenity is probably not the movie audiences are expecting. Steven Knight’s third feature as a director is a bonkers thriller, both old-fashioned and modern, that defies expectations. Nobody could ever call this movie predictable. Knight says he’s not a fan of the constraints of any given genre, and it shows in Serenity, a movie not tied down to the rules of a thriller. It’s not an easy film to put in a box or even say much about without spoiling anything. It’s the first feature Knight has dire...

A certain level of worship has grown around the movie “twist.” Career-ending contracts have been signed, backs bent, people probably (not really) thrown in movie jail for committing the worst sin a film lover can make: spoiling the twist. Twists have become such an essential part of our pop culture language that they’re more expected than not, and usually come in the form of a shocking death or a rote reveal. But there’s something to be said for the twist so monumental, so disruptive that it re...

It’s ‘Strange Days’ for an Echo Park teen battling aliens in Constantine Singer’s debut YA novel

After writing four novels that failed to attract an agent or publisher, Constantine Singer, a Los Angeles high school teacher who lives in Echo Park, was open to suggestions. That fourth novel, he knew, was a really good book. It earned high praise from a would-be agent who with deep regrets ultimately passed on it – not for any lack of interest but for the saturation of the marketplace for a noir-esque novel, he says. And then his wife Araidne Shaffer, whose acting career had brought the couple...
