Beauty vs Beast: Bad Romance

Howdy,everybody - Jason fromMNPPhere with a brand new round of "Beauty vs Beast"for you on this first Monday of June.Coming up on this first Friday of June a movie calledMy Cousin Rachelis coming out (you can watch the trailerright here) that stars Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin and is adapted from the 1951 book by Daphne du Maurier (who also wroteThe BirdsandRebecca).The book was already turned into a movie once in 1952 with  Richard Burton and Olivia de Havilland (which I have never seen;have you?) - anyway it's one of my favorite genres,the overheated gothic romance,brimming with lace and poisons,and I can't wait.

So in the spirit of such things this week we're tackling one of the greatest of all when it comes to these stories - Charlotte Brontë'sJane Eyre.There are a couple of film adaptations but let's go with the most recent,Cary Fukunaga's 2011 filmstarring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender,since I found it a grand adaptation.

PREVIOUSLYWe spent last week trapped in that damn cryogenic container so we've got to skip back two weeks toour last competition,which pit the Ellen Ripleyof Ridley Scott'sAlienagainst the Ellen Ripley of James Cameron'sAliens.And it was the bigger badder bitchier (her words not mine!) version of the latter who stomped away with 67% of your votes.Saidmarkgordonuk:

"Alienis my favourite movie but theAliensperformance is something else,the looks and glances,the fear,the physicality,the line readings,the no bull attitude,I could go on,such an Iconic performance,everyone knows who Ripley is."

Ira Sachs and Cary Fukunaga Team Up To Bring '80s East Village AIDS Drama to TV

by Daniel Crooke

When mulling over Ira Sachs' last handful of films – the intimately sketched,ephemeral epics of the heart,body,and soul,Keep The Lights OnandLove is Strange,as well as his upcomingLittle Men– a jokey poke from David Wain'sThey Came Togetherimmediately pops to mind: New York,a common setting between Sachs' three aforementioned stories,"it's almost like another character in the movie!"

After chronicling the city through a queer lens from the 1990s until now,Sachs willjoin forceswith Cary Fukunaga to wind the clock back another decade to bringChristodorato the small screen – a interlocking character drama set in a 1980s East Village apartment building,built around devastation and communal connection in the midst of the AIDS crisis.Props to Sachs,for his New York stories always incorporate the city into the narrative in a way that isn't only about iconographic lip service;his characters and their dilemmas could only exist within these urban surroundings,which creates deep internal and external senses of environmental exploration,whether through hard drugs,real estate,or gentrification.

Based on the novel of the same name,which was just released earlier this week,Christodorawill be directed by Sachs and produced by Fukunaga via his production company,Parliament of Owls.[Side note: this company name in and of itself sounds like a creative collaboration between a lofty,Lincoln-mode Spielberg and Zack Snyder's Ga-Hoole.] We don't yet have a release date but fingers crossed that the limited series hits our televisions,tablets,very tiny screens,etcetera by 2017.

Have you picked up a copy ofChristodorayet?What should we expect from Sachs' first foray into television series?
