Aimee Mann weds ‘Bachelor No. 2’ and ‘Magnolia’ albums together for Black Friday Record Store Day reissue

This Week In Trailers: Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles, Gunda, Baby God, Tiger, We Are The Champions

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week, we take a trip to the farm, get a sweet tooth, search for the fount of fertility, look for redemption on the links, and risk our co...

Michael Penn – “A Revival”

The singer and songwriter Michael Penn started out his career more than 30 years ago with the lovelorn power-pop hit "No Myth."

Adam Sandler Was Worried He Would “Ruin” ‘Punch-Drunk Love’

Adam Sandler is a beloved figure, even when he pumps out kind-of-awful movies. But he balances those types of films out with the occasional turn in a genuinely good movie – like the recent Uncut Gems, or in Paul Thomas Anderson‘s fantastic Punch-Drunk Love. Anderson’s film is the gold standard for “good Adam Sandler performances,” but according to the Sandman himself, he was very nervous about taking the role. In a recent interview, Sandler revealed that after watching Anderson’s Magnolia, he g...
