Jason fromMNPPhere feeling hysteria and heresy running through my veins on this Monday morning.I got to see Ken Russell's 1971 filmThe Devilson a big screen again this weekend (one of the benefits of living in a city the size of NYC is this chance happens every couple of years,and I grab the chance every damn time).

It being what it is (translation: a Ken Russell movie) the experience kind of infiltrates your consciousness for a little while.You close your eyes and all you can see is Oliver Reed beating his big burly man chest and Vanessa Redgrave twisting her humped and habited self into knots...it's not a bad place to be in,honestly.I must like it - I keep going back.Anyway as long as we're for the moment happily poisoned by the mad nuns of Loudun we figure we'll drag y'all there today too with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"...

PREVIOUSLYWe waved goodbye to this year's Oscars亚博主页and its closing SNAFU,making you choose sides between the former Bonnie & Clyde at the maelstrom's center -- you came down with Faye Dunaway (that makes her sound like a disease) to the tune of 58% of the vote.Saidbrookesboy:

"Have to pick Faye.She is a legend and I love her.I love Warren too,but I agree with those who say he saw the card first and should have signaled to the stage hand right away.Faye was impatient because it was going on too long.But neither are at fault.This should never have happened.No matter how terrible this fiasco,they both looked great and got to present Best Picture.How very cool.They should always only have classic Hollywood stars presenting Best Picture.That needs to be a rule."
