New face

I mentioned in this space the other day that “personal distractions” were among the things that had kept me from posting for three weeks. The main one is the fact that I have fallen in love.  The woman in question is Cheril Mulligan, a theater-and-film buff from and lifelong resident of Long Island. We became acquainted through Twitter, on which she tweets under a pseudonym, and “Three on the Aisle,” the theatrical podcast that I do with Peter Marks and Elisabeth Vincentelli. We got to k...

Ed Asner's 10 Best Roles, Ranked

We lost a giant of acting over the weekend, with the loss of Ed Asner at the age of 91. Asner had been an omnipresent persona in films, TV, live-action and animated storytelling, and even video games throughout his career.

Today, in his honor, let's look back at ten of his greatest roles on the big and small screens. Lou Grant: The Mary Tyler Moore Show And Lou Grant Th...

The 20 Best Westerns Of All Time

Since the earliest days of cinema, westerns have been one of Hollywood's favorite genres. 1908's "The Great Train Robbery" was one of the most successful early films, while 1939's "Stagecoach" kicked off a golden age of westerns that lasted until the mid-20th century, making stars out of actors like Gary Cooper, James Stewart, Robert Mitchum, Henry Fonda, Glenn Ford, and Walter Brennan.While thought of as a hallmark of American movies, international westerns grew in popularity, too. European fil...

Mexico is Doing the U.S.’s ‘Dirty Work,’ Say Researchers as Border Apprehensions Decline For 7th Month In a Row

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced Thursday that apprehensions at the U.S. Mexico border — a figure generally considered the most accurate measure of migrants who have attempted to enter the U.S. — have decreased for the seventh consecutive month. But immigration experts and advocates say that trend is likely the result of a crackdown on migration by the Mexican government. According to data released Thursday, 32,858 people were apprehended at the border in December 2019, in...

Creative Passion: Five Filmmakers and their Inspirations

A smart film critic (possibly Ken Hanke) once wrote, “filmmakers start by remaking things they admired in childhood.” I am not able to find out exactly who wrote this, partly because it could be applied to any film critic. Every filmmaker has their ideas and obsessions implanted into them at an early age. No matter how much they change or how their subject matter may shift, they’re looking to recreate that moment they saw John Carpenter’s The Thing to experience that feeling they felt when they ...

Kushner To Meet With Incoming Mexico President

MEXICO CITY — Leftist President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is enjoying a bit of a honeymoon with U.S. President Donald Trump, and he was effusive Tuesday in praising the U.S. leader’s restraint in not bringing up his proposed border wall. Instead of confrontational talk, Lopez Obrador will get a visit by Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, and U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo on Friday. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen als...

The Best Western Movies Ever Made

Few figures in history have had as powerful an impact on American masculinity as the cowboy. While the mythologization of the cowboy began all the way back in the late 1800s with dime novels and Wild West shows, it wasn’t until the advent of twentieth century cinema that the cowboy cemented his place as an icon of manliness. In the same may the myths of the Greeks and the legends of the Vikings espoused certain ideals and inspired men of the past, Western films contain lessons in heroism, epic ...

Seven Years Ago, A Mexican Artist Turned The U.S.-Mexico Border Into A Bridge

“The term ‘political activist’ is problematic,” Mexican artist Minerva Cuevas proclaims in a video for Art 21, premiering on The Huffington Post on Friday. “I think the challenge is to stop using the references to activism, because everyone has this agency to react to daily life and therefore generate political action.” In 2010, Cuevas created “Crossing of the Rio Bravo,” a project that took place near the U.S.-Mexico border. For the work, she operated on a simple premise: “If there is a border...

Mexican Gun Battles

Do you think it doesn’t matter that we’re bringing in Mexican cartels and their killers to America?  Do you think law and order America will be able to get these warlords under control? Breitbart notes one recent gun battle in the streets of Rio Bravo. Machine gunfire and rolling battles along the main avenues of this city spread terror among townspeople who tried to hide inside homes and businesses. Stray bullets went through the walls of some houses. The violence took place on Friday morning ...

The wall and the beast: Trump's triumph from the Mexican side of the border

A Mexican response to US election season Carlos Bravo Regidor, Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas During the 2012 US presidential election, Mexico - or rather, the idea of Mexico - wasn't an issue. Romney and Obama may have mentioned it during discussions on immigration reform, the border separating the two countries, or drug policy, but this was in passing, offhand. Mexico itself as a country was not a topic of conversation. Back then, some of my co...

America's current presidential race is not only one of the longest in living memory (it started over a year ago, with an array of floundering candidates), but also one of the most atypical.

Court Rules Luc Besson’s ‘Lockout’ Totally Ripped Off John Carpenter’s ‘Escape from New York’

When the sci-fi action flick Lockout arrived in theaters in 2012, many reviews pegged the film written by Luc Besson as a half-ass remake of John Carpenter‘s 1981 classic Escape from New York with the action transported to a space prison instead of a dark future. It appears critics weren’t the only ones annoyed with the similarities between the two films because director John Carpenter actually ended up suing writer Luc Besson because the script plagiarized the 1981 movie. Previously, a court r...

Dean Martin in Rio Bravo .

Howard Hawks' splendid 1959 Western is the defining example of what Quentin Tarantino calls a hangout movie, where the plot is essentially an excuse to spend time with the characters. Sheriff John Wayne, town drunk Dean Martin and showgirl Angie Dickinson are among the independent-minded heroes who join forces to fend off a band of killers.
