Did you see last night'sGlee"Original Song"?I always feel so melancholy at Regionals episodes because I know that means noGleefor awhile.For a show I often actively dislike on account of lazy writing,wasted opportunities and ridiculously unnecessary pandering (People loved the show before it started pandering to them!Why bend over backwards to worry about what people might like now?),sometimes the show makes it really hard for me to pretend that I don't just love it,warts and all.So many highlights in this one,from Brittany's always dependable split second deadpan "favorite song: my headband"to a rare Mercedes showcase "Hell to the No"to a gay kiss played emphatically and without apology,to the return of undergirding themes (Rachel's future completely obvious stardom versus small town limitations) to that killer joyous finale "Loser Like Me"in which the kids learn the age old oppressed minority trick of turning insults into empowering F-you pride.Anyway,loved it.I still wish that show I loved last year about small town Broadway geeks trying to find their voices would come back but the new now oldGleeis still great cathartic fun when it remembers to be.

Gordon and the WhaleHey,if Alessadro Nivola gets Michael Fassbender's cast offs,maybe Fassbender should say no a little more often?I love them both but Nivola has been way too neglected and I don't want Fassy to burn out.

Beatrice Dalle and Jean-Hugues Anglade in BETTY BLUE

Acidemic"Beatrice Dalle My What Big Teeth You Have."Beatrice is on my mind as I just watched this newish french flickDomainwhere she is typically vivid and dangerous feeling,even while simply strolling through a park or ordering a glass of wine.  Have you ever seenBetty Blue?Still one of the craziest movies ever to snag a Best Foreign Film Oscar nom.
TowleroadRemember that story about Jake Gyllenhaal being photographed in a men's room at SXSW.It's been animated.(The transformation into Jack Twist is a funny touch.)
