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

Yes No Maybe So: "The Goldfinch"

by Ilich Mejía

Before you ask,five times.Five times I've tried to get past the first half of this book.Five times I've had to put it down to rewatch that one extra-good episodeBojack Horsemandrops every season and then forgotten to pick it back up.To seem cultured,I will lie and say I was in the middle of a sixth try when the trailer for the movie dropped.Naturally,I've neglected to pick it back up since because I've been busy picking the trailer apart to decide how I feel about it.Join me in deciding,fellow philistines!

Tribeca: Suffer the Little Children

Here'sJasonwith a real pair of downers to conclude our Tribeca Coverage.Thanks for reading along.Next up in the festival game: Cannes...

Bridgend-- I'm a little perplexed about Bridgend winning half of the awards at the fest;besides a few arresting visuals I found the film moribund on arrival.The film fictionalizes the true-life story of a town in Wales where a mysterious rash of suicides has plagued the hills.Lead actress Hannah Murray (best known in the US as Gilly onA Game of Thrones,although I didn't recognize her once while watching the movie and I'm a bigThronesfan) gives us a vivid enough slide intoCruciblelight hysteria but I never really bought what the movie was selling - it skims over too many unreasonable plot holes in deference to its stifling mood,and at times is downright silly with trying too hard.A literally shitty sex-romp on a dirty mattress in the woods is somehow played straight,even as visions of Divine inFemale Troubleflood our minds.

Meadlowlands-- Also suffering from all outward signs of Film Festival Depression,where people suffer beautifully,so beautifully,Meadlowlands does have a few nice performances even as it wrings every manipulative drop out of Dead Kid Grief it can.Olivia Wilde and Luke Wilson play parents whose cookie-munching moppet gets snatched at the start of the first reel;the kid's never more than a plot device through which we can watch them suffer,and suffer they do,beautifully.Wilson gets the less overbearing arc to play which is good since he's an actor I appreciate for his low-key style;Wilde smartly under-plays her over-drawn hand (cutting and autistic kids,oh my) but man alive by the time the elephant shows up all I could think of was "Don't think about elephants."
