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

Review: The Beach Bum

byMurtada Elfadl

If your favorite Matthew Mcconaughey mood is of the naked bongo drumming variety,then Harmony Korine has made just the movie for you.InThe Beach BumMcconaughey is Moondog,a rebellious rogue living outside society in Florida doing exactly what he wants,whenever he wants it,and all the while high as a kite.He's nice,benevolent,kind,mostly peaceful,accepting of all and of their foibles.He believes in true love and practices it (straight of course but not adverse to a bit of cross dressing).Even when he finds out his wife (Isla Fisher) is also sleeping with other people,it takes him literally only a minute to go from surprise to complete acceptance.

The plot -if we can call it that - is to follow Moondog along his travels in Key West and Miami...

SXSW: Matthew McConaughey in "The Beach Bum"

Abe Fried-Tanzer reporting from the SXSW Festival...

You know that any movie which has its publicists passing out "scratch and sniff"cards to help audiences smell weed during select scenes is going to be a wild ride.Matthew McConaughey playing the title character in a movie calledThe Beach Bumshould be enough of an indication,and,if still more reassurance was needed,the fact that it comes from writer-director Harmony Korine should put any doubts to rest: this is going to be one out-of-control film.

Korine's last film wasSpring Breakers,a mostly-praised portrait of college students-turned-criminals featuring a highly memorable and indescribable performance from James Franco...

Sundance: Jonah Hill Tries To Pry the "True Story"Out of James Franco

Michael at Sundance

Most of the buzz around Rupert Goold'sTrue Storyis  going to focus on comedic compadres James Franco and Jonah Hill facing off in a pair of hefty dramatic roles.The fact that they are the biggest names attached means they are probably going to take the heat for the fact that the film comes up short of its potential,but I'm inclined to pin the blame on the screenplay.The stars came to play,but they can only go so far with a material that never digs deep enough into these characters to make their battle of wits jolt to life.

Once you get past the novelty factor,the casting of Franco and Hill reflects back on their familiar personas in interesting ways.Franco,an actor who is priceless in the right role and lost at sea in the wrong one,is used well in a role that capitalizes on his enigmatic quality.Like the public that can't quite pin down the real Franco,Hill's Michael Finkel spends the film trying to get a read on Franco's Christian Longo,a man accused of killing his wife and three children with no apparent motive.Soon after the bodies of his wife and one his daughters are discovered dumped in a river after being stuffed into suitcases,Longo is picked up in Mexico using Finkel's name as an alias.When Finkel confronts him about the identity theft he sees the potential for a great story but whenever he gets close to the truth Longo shuts down and clams up...
