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

Fosse/Verdon - Finale!

by Eric Blume

Michelle & Sam as Gwen & Bobby

Fosse/Verdonwrapped its 8-episode run this Tuesday,and here's a quick recap on the final three episodes,and some overall thoughts on this captivating mini-series.

Episode Six,"All I Care About is Love"
Episode six concerned Fosse's heart attack during the editing ofLenny(1974)editing and rehearsals forChicagoon Broadway.It was one of the weaker episodes of the series,especially coming offthe previous episode,the almost-staged-play episode with the characters locked in a Hamptons house,arguably the show's high-water mark.That episode gave director Thomas Kail (who went fromHamiltonto TV with graceful ease) the opportunity to put in the nails early on and keep screwing tightly,with all the actors laser-focused on their objectives and obstacles.Episode Six,on the other hand,contained some material handled directly inAll That Jazz,and it felt more like a transitional episode for the final narrative haul of the show...

Fosse/Verdon - Ep.5: "Where Am I Going?"

previously onFosse/Verdon

byDancin' Dan

Figures that the episode randomly assigned to the resident dance expert of Team Experience is the only episode ofFosse/Verdonso far that hasn't had even the tiniest bit of dancing in it.I seem to be enjoying the show more than some of the rest of the team,and i've particularly marveled at the series' recreations of some of Fosse's best known pieces,some of which I have had the good fortune to dance myself.One of the choreographers who taught me told our ensemble that most of Fosse's choreography is defined by tension - you must always be holding tension in your body somewhere in order to make it look and feel right.To that end,when we were dancing movements that were supposed to be more fluid,she told us to imagine that we were dancing through peanut butter.It's an image that I now always associate with Fosse's work,and I found it particularly apt for this episode.Even though there's no dancing,there's plenty of tension.Every character looks like they're moving through peanut butter,pushing and straining to get what they want.

Bob Fosse had his unprecedented year of glory,and ended up in the Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic for his troubles...

Fosse/Verdon - EP 4: "Glory"

previously onFosse/Verdon

byMurtada Elfadl

I was looking forward to episode 4 ofFosse/Verdonbecause the trailers showed that it would mark the introduction of Margaret Qualley as Ann Reinking.Maybe Michelle Williams would get a real sparring partner to act against,as Sam Rockwell was not rising up to the occasion.That's mostly because the material he's given is repetitive.How many notes can an actor ring out of tortured genius?Not many.Little did I know the actor who would actually match up fantastically with Williams wouldn't be Qualley but rather Aya Cash as her best friend Joan Simon.

But before we get to that we have to deal with Bob Fosse's mega year of 1973.This is the year he won an Oscar (forCabaret),2 Tonys (forPippin) and 3 Emmys (forLiza with a Z)...

Sundance 2019 Lineup: Lots of Promising Topics and Great Actresses

The Sundance Film Festival runs January 24th through February 3rd next year.Let's look at the five of the key program lineups in brief.Which films are you most excited about.TFE might be going this year,we're not yet sure.


Alfred Woodard stars in "Clemency"

16 World Premieres will be competing for the Sundance crown (won last year byThe Miseducation of Cameron Post).The new crop is all writer/directors (except where noted) and Sundance has been very careful about diversity,noting in their press release that the US dramatic competition section is 53% female directors,41% directors of color and 18% LGBTQ directors.But they had a ton to choose from which helps with diversity.There was a record number of submissions for the 2019 festival with 4,018 features hoping to be selected,1767 if those made from within the US...
