The Link Has Two Faces

Your Weekend Must Read
Emily Yoshida at Vulture gazes at Ingmar Bergman'sPersonabut she sees way beyond that,too,to the dream space shared bycinema's curious subgenre of female identity swapping.

Two women talking: a recipe for witchcraft,an unnatural feedback loop,a cursed redundancy.Ingmar Bergman's 1966 masterpiecePersonais a landmark for many reasons,but its legacy,which has show no signs of age in the 50 years since it was released in the U.S.and the U.K.,is how it stared that anxiety in the face and opened up a loopy,meandering conversation that's still going on to this day...

Boy Culture"STREEPSHOW"a drag comedy about "characters one played by Meryl Streep"living together in the East Village will be playing NYC in June.Sounds hilarious but I have to admit that it took me quite some time to figure out the characters in the photo (and there seem to be two Miranda Priestleys?) which is maybe not a good sign.Shouldn't they be instantly recognizable?

Patricia Neal went through some tough stuff in the 1960s too,so good luck to the actress taking that on.

"Other episodes will star Rebecca Front,Gemma Whelan,Ian Gelder,Kadiff Kirwan and Fionn Whitehead."

Says it right there in the article you're linking to...

Wonderstruck looks divine.Hears hoping Millie Simmonds delivers and could garner some Oscar attention.We need more representation of people with disabilities on film.

Todd Haynes sure seems to be on a roll.That clip from Wonderstruck is transcendent.The darkness of the color scene juxtaposed with the light and detail of the b&w is the kind of touch I love in his films.But it is so much more than just the look.The camera movement,the fleeting glimpses of the boys,the look of awe on the girl's face,the Burwell score...I wish I could see this movie at Cannes because winter is going to be a long wait.

Those Nicole Kidman pieces are a little dramatic.Who cares how Nicole Kidman is celebrated as long as she's being celebrated?It's like the Rupaulism: "I don't care what you call me,just call me!"I'm too busy basking in this glorious Kidman year to worry about neophytes on the Internet who have,to their credit,come around to her gifts.

The beauty of movie stars is discovering and rediscovering them through the years.The sun can't shine on every career at all times unless you're Meryl Streep.And to the writer's point about sexism,I don't know a single male actor who's enjoyed more enduring acclaim than she has.

I hope Gypsy is to Watts what Big Little Lies was to Kidman.
