These Oscar Speeches Will Make You Laugh, Cry & Cringe

Right this very moment, the chosen ones in Hollywood are carefully considering their words, listing every agent and publicist, and jotting down some witty asides onto index cards, which they will carefully tuck inside a jacket pocket or Swarovski-embellished evening bag. If there's ever a time to ensure your public-speaking skills are on point, it's Oscars night. (Unless you're nominated in one of the four categories the Academy has decided to honor during the commercial breaks, in which case —...

Michelle Rodriguez on Liam Neeson: He Is Not a Racist

Michelle Rodriguez is standing by Liam Neeson days after the actor made racist remarks. “It’s all f—kin’ bulls—t,” the actress, 40, told Vanity Fair at the amfAR Gala on Wednesday, February 6. “Dude, have you watched Widows? His tongue was so far down Viola Davis’ throat. You can’t call him a racist ever. Racists don’t make out with the race that they hate, especially in the way he does with his tongue — so deep down her throat. I don’t care how good of an actor you are. It’s all bulls—t. Ignore...

‘Troop Zero’ Review: Viola Davis and Allison Janney Headline This Charming Comedy, But It Belongs to the Kids [Sundance]

From its opening shot that travels from the Big Dipper all the way down to the small town of Wiggly, Georgia in 1977, Troop Zero, a Southern-fried comedy from female co-directors Bert & Bertie, seems to constantly walk the line of being too precocious and cute for its own good. But even though its jokes don’t always land, the film is still a pleasant, largely charming diversion and further proof that Viola Davis can elevate any movie she’s in. The absurdly-named Christmas Flint (Mckenna Grace...

Searching for Answers in Denis Villeneuve’s 'Prisoners'

None It's never just about how the murder was committed or where the missing person went or who stole the precious moonstone. The detective stories that really resonate are the ones that investigate beneath the case itself and into the deeper mysteries of who we are. The ones that delve into the invisible mechanisms of our societies, the inner clockwork of our selves. Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners is about two girls gone missing and a father desperate to retrieve them. It's also about how to m...

Review: Widows

— by RON WILKINSON — After “12 Years a Slave,” what was director Steve McQueen to do? That was a hard act to follow. He could have played it safe, but instead he doubled down with fellow Oscar-winner Viola Davis to produce this powerhouse ensemble drama about three terminally disenfranchised widows doing it their own […]

Queens, Thieves & Mothers: The Best Performances By Women In Movies This Year (So Far)

The first time I remember being struck by a actress’ performance was while watching Gone With The Wind when I was 8 years old. Vivien Leigh’s Scarlett O’Hara leapt off my living room TV screen, a woman who could just as easily cut your face off out of spite as she could seduce you into oblivion. She was ambitious, and cunning, and sometimes heartless. But she was also fiercely loyal, and ready sacrifice for those she loved.In the years since, I’ve come to grapple with the many mitigating factor...

If ‘Widows’ Really Wanted To Be Feminist, Well, It Threw Away Its Shot

Director Steve McQueen and his co-writer Gillian Flynn might say the movie, starring Viola Davis at the head of a very fine cast of badass women, is feminist, or deals with racism and sexism at every level of society, but … well. “Their dialogue starts to read like promotional materials for the newest brand of Feminism Lite.”  – Vice
