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

Blueprints: "American Beauty"

Last month we dove into one of themost iconic shower scenesin cinema for April Showers.For May Flowers,Jorgetakes a look into one of the most famous thematic uses of a flower in film.

American Beautywas at one point supposed to be titledAmerican Rose.This is neither a coincidence nor an appropriate alternative.The film,a satire about American suburbia and the layers of darkness that society hides underneath their pretty but rotting exteriors,heavily uses the recurring image of rose throughout.Not just in the now iconic nude sequence with Mena Suvari.

Roses appear through the script in many key parts,usually in places where a character is putting up a façade for the world,or when they are completely submitting to their darkest impulses.Or when those two collide.Let's take a look at where the flowers ominously represent both the attachment and the repulsion against society's "pretty"standards...

Varietykeeps us updated with what's going on with Martin Scorsese'sThe Irishmanwhich Netflix will stream.Variety,perhaps for click-bait purposes,acts like the theatrical release is in doubt but it is surely not;Scorsese would never sign a contract that doesn't give him at least some theatrical distribution so expect the usual limited release that no one goes to in theaters because its' also streaming for free on Netflix situation (upcoming withMudbound)

Kevin Spacey Replaced / Removed From "All the Money in the World"

by Ben Miller

a performance that will be erased -- Kevin Spacey in "All the Money in the World"

On Wednesday night,I was talking to my wife aboutAll the Money in the World.  The upcoming thriller from director Ridley Scott features the true story of billionaire J.Paul Getty and his involvement with the kidnappers of his grandson.  I brought it up because(alleged) serial sexual harasserKevin Spacey was set to play Getty.

My discussion focused on how unfair it was to Scott,stars Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg,and especially young Charlie Plummer,who is poised for a breakout role as the aforementioned kidnapped grandson.  Just because Spacey is a terrible human doesn't mean the people involved in a production should suffer.

The backlash from Spacey's allegations was swift...

Kevin Spacey Continues to Take Low Roads

by Nathaniel R

a famously cheeky magazine cover from 1997Sigh.How do you solve a problem like Kevin Spacey?The actor's career started off splendidly but soon after those hugely popular double Oscar wins (The Usual SuspectsandAmerican Beauty) in the second half of the 1990s,he became rather insufferable both onscreen and as a celebrity.Acting is a subjective art but I personally can't make it through a single episode of House of Cards(I've tried a few times) with that pitched to the rafters hamminess.

The Netflix star has been resisting public admission of his open-secret homosexuality since he became famous.He's let decades go by without comment,while dozens of braver less famous actors took up the challenge and made the world a better place for future generations by coming out.

Now that he's accused of sexual assault by another man he chooses THIS moment to do it?For shame!
