Happy National Siblings Day!

by Mark Brinkerhoff

Fontaine and de Havilland in 1967 at a Marlene Dietrich show

"I bequeath all my beauty to my younger sister Joan,because she has none."
- Olivia de Havilland,according to her "will,"age nine
Apocryphal?Who can say.Delicious?100 percent!
Though chronicled to death (at TFE and elsewhere),the purported feud between the most famous siblings of Hollywood's Golden Age endures like no other.Why?Because it seems silly and pointless in retrospect,as most sibling rivalries and familial angst do.But rather than dwell on the negative,let's turn our attention to more positive outpourings of mutual love and respect,shall we?
Here are 10 of the more famous (in some cases infamous) siblings over the years on the ties that bind—and unbind—them to each other,not to mention the public's imagination...

Finally...
The IndieWire Critics pollhas been released.I continue to be dumbfounded that critics support,nay,EMBRACE,category fraud as if they,too,have no respect for any actor who isn't the lead of a movie.You'd think critics (of all people) would be the check and balance on this sort of anti-art gamemanships.It's dumbfounding because they have nothing to gain by kowtowing to the whims of publicists and the egos of movie stars,rather than voting with integrity.They get access either way.I know as one such critic who everyone knows rejects category fraud wherever I see it.As with SAG,60% of the Supporting Actress list is leading ladies.If you're wondering why Bradley Cooper missed the Best Actor list please know that for some reason he was left off of the pulldown list during voting.I wrote him in but I imagine a lot of people would not have gone to the trouble,not for any nefarious reason but because he slipped their mind when they did not see him on the list of choices.I do not support these kind of shenanigans!But the winners areRoma,Alfonso Cuarón,Olivia Colman,Ethan Hawke,Rachel Weisz (for best leadingsupportingactress),and Steven Yeun.

Beauty vs Beast: Sugar & Spice & Everything March

Hello and happy Monday everyone,Jason fromMNPPhere with another edition of our "Beauty vs Beast"series - Louisa May Alcott's bookLittle Womenjust turned 150 this year and it's hotter than it's ever been.There was aBBC versionwith Maya Hawke and Emily Watson and Angela Lansbury that aired here in the US in the spring.Then this very weekend there'sa modernized retellinghitting theaters.And then of course the one sucking all the air out of the room - Greta Gerwig's all-star edition set for next year,whose cast is so stacked we'd be here all day if I try listing off everybody -just look at the IMDb page.

Anyway a lot of us (even if we're excited to see all of those actors in one place and under her direction) aren't entirely sure why Greta's making this new version - not when there's Gillian Armstrong's perfectly lovely 1994 adaptation already,anyway.Winona Ryder as Jo,Christian Bale as Laurie,Susan Sarandon as Marmee,Kirsten Dunst as Amy,Claire Danes as Beth (cough cough)...these are the people I picture when I pictureLittle Women.And then one second later I immediately remember Amy burning Jo's manuscript and I see red...

PREVIOUSLYI'm not sure if it was mostly Riz Ahmed Lust or if it was just that Jake's character is so (deliciously) despicable,but y'all surprised me and went and gave Riz/Rick your prize onlast week'sNightcrawlercontestwith nearly 60% of the vote.Lou's a loser!

Anyway maybe it's just simply whatNick Tsaid:

"Rick's just a nice cute guy who doesn't even know he's in over his head and Jake's a mean ol' lizard.Easy call."

And the Skies Are Not Cloudy All Day

At several key moments in Jacques Audiard's hymnalThe Sisters Brotherstime stands still and we watch a curtain gently shift to and fro in the breeze,mid-day sunlight coloring in its folds,making shade where none just was.Take a moment to smell the roses,the film whispers,because hey you never know if and or when you might get shot right in your face...

Months of Meryl: Rendition (2007)

JohnandMattheware watching every single live-action film starring Meryl Streep.

#37 —Corrine Whitman,the ruthless head of U.S.intelligence.

MATTHEW: If the one-two punch ofA Prairie Home CompanionandThe Devil Wears Pradain 2006 represent a high-water mark for Meryl Streep then 2007 might very well be the single oddest year in the actress' career.How else to explain Streep's decision to accept secondary and even tertiary parts in four independent-to-midrange projects that not a single Streep enthusiast has ever had the inclination to hold up alongside her most acclaimed or memorable works?Streep spent part of the prior year accepting prizes forPradaand,most excitingly,playing one of the all-timegreatestcharacters in theater history on the outdoor stage of the Delacorte.During that period,Streep also found time to dip her toes into the murky waters of post-9/11 cinema for a second time,following up her monstrous mommy in Jonathan Demme'sThe Manchurian Candidatewith an equally vile political puppeteer...
