Re: “It Follows' sexually transmitted Terminator may be the best weapon ever devised for teen abstinence

I initially thought the Carpenter album was too slick and heavy on digital synthesizers, but it's really grown on me.

Definitely. I'm digging these Carpenter-influenced soundtracks (also true of THE GUEST). Have you heard this yet:

Re: “Insurgent: On film, The Divergent Series is still just The Hunger Games' bratty little sister

Three months in, this is the lamest year for multiplex movies I can recall in maybe 20 years. No wonder there have been weeks when the Scene has run no movie reviews in the print edition. There have been weeks when nothing of any interest is released.

Re: “David Cronenberg updates the Greek tragedy to toxic modern-day Hollywood in Maps to the Stars

Sorry to upset you, FearlessRU, but I'm mentioning something that MANY people have pointed out about the term "fearless." As used by critics and fanboys, it has become code for "she shows tit." You don't get out much or do much reading, do you?

Re: “David Cronenberg updates the Greek tragedy to toxic modern-day Hollywood in Maps to the Stars

Lovely Bob. I didn't love the film but it is a fearless performance...no quote marks here. I don't see anyone writing about the actor with the dick in his hand. If that was an attempt at somehow acknowledging that women are regularly diminished and dismissed despite remarkable performances, maybe talk to an actual female to get some feedback on your frame and your thinking. If that was typically dude bullshit...well, on and on it goes.

I've found that when film buffs (and critics) describe an actress as "fearless," what they're usually saying is: "She gets naked."

Re: “David Cronenberg updates the Greek tragedy to toxic modern-day Hollywood in Maps to the Stars

Julianne Moore IS fearless in 'Map to the Stars'. Quite a few so-called serious dramatic Hollywood actors and actresses always seem to just talktalktalkTALK about finding cinematic roles that really, truly push them to exercise their craft to the Nth degree, even at the risk of alienating fans and, even worse, controversy-phobic top casting directors.

Bravo, Julianne Moore, bravo indeed for going way beyond mere talk in 'Maps'.

Re: “The surprises only start with Citizen Kane in The Belcourt's must-see Orson Welles retrospective

Speaking of John Ford, I watched "Stagecoach" again recently--it's the movie Welles claimed to have screened while conceiving "Kane," and sure enough, the interior shots often have a feel similar to those in "Kane."
