THE SOUR HOUR: OSCAR EDITION

8F7C107A-B6E6-465F-A266-5175F6364456

What a pleasure to sit in with my dear old friend Craig D. Lindsey on KPFT’s The Sour Hour. We piss and moan a bit about the Oscars and complain about the idiots in the Trump administration but mostly I just laugh at Craig’s rants. He calls me up about halfway through the show, after playing the Backstreet Boys song that was in Booty Call. – The Sour Hour, 02/28/2018

FEMMES FATALES AT THE MFA

E96DA9EC-8312-41BD-A679-5B52E0B659CC

“The phrase conjures black-and-white visions of Venetian blinds and countless cigarettes, allegorically exposing male anxieties of powerlessness in a changing post-war world. The MFA’s ‘Femmes Fatales’ is a fine selection if you want to study advancing gender roles in genre cinema, and works just as well if you like to go to the movies to look at beautiful women.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 02/28/2018

A FANTASTIC WOMAN

“In fact, Daniela Vega is so very good it’s impossible to watch A Fantastic Woman without wishing she’d been given more to do than just suffer. She wanders through the movie numbed with grief and absorbing abuse, which is compelling on a human level but dramatically monotonous. There aren’t exactly a lot of surprises here.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 02/23/2018

THE PARTY

47958F96-C417-4040-9824-6078A3BB393C

”There’s a clear post-Brexit anxiety bubbing under the proceedings, as we watch London’s upper crust devouring itself. None of these well-meaning, hyper-educated liberals have been able to see what’s been happening right under their noses. But beyond any political implications it’s just a pleasure to watch these performers ping-ponging off one another.” – WBUR’s The ARTery, 02/21/2018

2017 MURIEL AWARDS: BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR

48CADC23-C542-4402-9F51-4854926A3FA7

“Dafoe had maybe the trickiest job in movies last year, anchoring a cast of wildly gifted and totally green first-time actors, rolling with their improvisations and imperfections. Like his character tending to a wayward flock in a ramshackle welfare motel, Dafoe provides structure and sanity to The Florida Project. It’s impossible to imagine the movie without him.” – The Muriel Awards, 02/17/2018
