Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Valentine's - Weekend

Team Experience is celebrating Valentines Day with favorite love scenes.Here's Jose...

Early on in my life I decided that all my favorite romances had to end with the lovers apart.And I mean,seriously,can you name a perfect romance that ends with happily ever after?FromCasablancatoDr.ZhivagoandRoman Holiday,it's as if the movies have always told us that a brief,but powerful romance,the kind which makes us swoon in our 80s like Gloria Stuart inTitanic,is the kind of romance we all should crave.But it wasn't until I watched Andrew Haigh's Nottingham-setWeekendin 2011 that I realized as a gay man there was finally one of these romances for someone like me (I won't go into details of how this movie seems to me my biopic...) in which no one ended dead,as most gay romances do in fiction.

In the last scene we see Russell (Tom Cullen) and Glen (Chris New) together,they share a brief kiss as they say goodbye before Glen heads to America.Even though there is nothing really "tragic"about their farewell,it's this idea of the person existing in the same planet,as you have to find the will to move on,that's most devastating.I can see the lovers running into each other years in the future (I doubt they remained Facebook friends,I wouldn't have,would you?) and either of them going into full "of all the gin joints..."Bogie mode as they wonder "what if".

What are some of your favorite non-tragic gay romances?What romantic movie do you feel could be your biopic?

Breakthroughs

"More please!"

...That's my chief criteria for nominating actorsfor Breakthrough prizesat this site's own annual gongs,the Film Bitch Awards.(For new readers the name is a long story.We're not so bitchy about the movies unless by bitchy you mean so in love with them that we hold them to high standards).We're hoping that Pariah is only the first great performance from Adepero Oduye (pictured left).

Rather than hand Her Lady of Sudden Ubiquity (Jessica Chastain) the gold silver and bronze this year,we're giving her a special "body of work"medal.

It's not our usual practice to nominate someone whose been working as long as Olivia Colman alongside debut artists like Martha herselvesElizabeth Olsen,but Colman was completely unknown to us here in the US.

You can see the Breakthrough nominations under the Film Bitch pulldown menu up top.We've also started handing out medals in the Oscar adjacent categories.Check them out!

P.S.Here's a cute video of the remaining nominees Tom Cullen & Chris New from "Attitude"'s photoshoot if you haven't seen it.
