Let’s Talk About GLOW Season 2, Episode 4, ‘Mother of all Matches’

The second season of Netflix series GLOW about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling is back, and better than ever. The Golden Globe nominated series that celebrates all things girl power and amazing odd-ball Netflix comedy. The performances are top notch in both performance and athleticism-  these ladies are at the top of their games and completely […]

How To Talk To Girls At Parties

Watch: New ‘How To Talk To Girls At Parties’ Trailer from A24

How To Talk To Girls At Parties is a film I’ve personally been waiting for since it was announced. While not the biggest Neil Gaiman fan, this is probably my favorite of his short stories. Added in with one of my personal heroes in the director’s chair with the most perfect sensibilities for the project, […]

Taking a Look: The SFFILM Lineup for 2018’s Festival

I’m very lucky to live (and work) in San Francisco, CA. The city, with more in common with Ancient Rome than perhaps most modern cities (built on seven hills, cultural and political hotbed, bathhouses, etc.), knows how to deliver a film festival. 2018’s San Francisco International Film Festival theme just happens to be diversity and […]

Mozart in the jungle

Let’s Talk About Mozart in the Jungle Season 4, Episode 1

Amazon original series Mozart in the Jungle season 4 arrived on the streaming service last night, and it’s already getting pretty fabulous reviews.  If you haven’t seen the series, this is the perfect time to marathon seasons 1-3. Truly, I cannot recommend it enough. We thought maybe we’d dive right in with an episodic chat of […]

Fans of author Neil Gaiman are in for another treat this year with a film adaptation of his short story, “How To Talk To Girls At Parties”.  Most folks are excited for this film because of the source material, or the fabulous all-star cast including Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson, and Alex Sharp. But myself?  I’m more excited for the […]

John Cameron Mitchell Joins Mozart In The Jungle

If you are not watching Amazon’s original series Mozart In The Jungle, you should fix that as soon as possible.  The surprise hit series has racked up an impressive collection of Emmys and Golden Globe wins, pretty much coming out of nowhere to take home Best Musical Or Comedy and Best Lead Actor In A Musical […]

John Cameron Mitchell, director of the superb Rabbit Hole, sexually explicit romcom Shortbus and both live and filmed versions of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, has told his friend Kevin Sessums (via Vulture) that he’s got a Hedwig sequel brewing. Sessums says: [Mitchell] is busy putting the finishing touches on his first draft of a […]

VIDEO: Marion Cotillard And John Cameron Mitchell’s L.A.dy Dior

There are oodles of credits for stylists at the end of this short film by Hedwig and  Rabbit Hole‘s John Cameron Mitchell. That’s because, essentially, it’s an ad for Dior. And Marion Cotillard is the canvas on which the Dior style has been painted. How apt that we end with I Am A Poseur by […]

The Trailer For Rabbit Hole With Aaron Eckhart And Nicole Kidman

Lionsgate have let loose their trailer for Rabbit Hole, the David Lindsay Abaire written drama that earned him a Pulitzer in its original stage bound incarnation. This cinematic adaptation was directed by John Cameron Mitchell, who appears to have eschewed his typical theatrics for deeper, richer drama. I can easily be dissuaded by Nicole Kidman, […]
