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

Hello Linky

Just two handfuls of links this morning.I'm still on my birthday tear for Tony weekend -- finally sawHello,Dolly!on Broadway last night with Bernadette Peters and as usual she was an adorable diva.Laughed my ass off.A friend of mine revealed that he had already seen the show four times to see all three leading ladies (Bette,Donna Murphyx 2,Bernadette).Bette returns to the show (with the magical Donna Murphy on Bette's off days since Bette can't handle 8 shows a week) on July 17th.I don't have the funds for three trips but would definitely see again if the chance occurs.

Familiar Faces: The Jonathan Demme Players

by Nathaniel R

Dearest reader,as you've probably heard by now the director Jonathan Demme has passed away at 73.He died due to esophageal cancer.I had run into him at a screening ofLa La Landthis past September and I took the opportunity to tell him how muchRachel Getting Marriedmeant to me (he joked about being first with interracial weddings for Rosemarie deWitt onscreen).Then we talkedSwing Shiftfor a little bitas we had just discussed it on this very site.I was so saddened by this yesterday that I couldn't do much but tweet my farewells.The words wouldn't come out for a lengthy piece but then,surprise,I remembered I'd written the following piece that was never published (oops) to coincide with the release ofRicki and the Flash(2015).I filled in a few of the blank spots and adjusted some verbs to reflect the past tense but this surprisingly doubles as what I probably wanted to say about Jonathan Demme yesterday and couldn't.It's about his favorite actors but looking back,it's a fitting tribute because what American director was more curious about literally any kind of person he might find with his camera?

Jonathan Demme was one of America's most interesting and surprising directors.Though he's now best remembered forthe modern classicThe Silence of the Lambs(1991)it was actually something of an oddity in his filmography being the only horror film and,in some ways,the most classically controlled.In other ways though it's a traditional Demme picture.It features actors doing unexpected or suddenly signature electric work,weird musician cameos (what the hell is one of the members of 80s synth pop band Book of Love doing in there?),and diverse casting where most films would go with the default heavily male white cast.In fact,Silencemight be his most white/male movie but that's part of its plot...

12 Days Until Oscar - Colleen Atwood, Anyone?

With 12 days until Oscar let's focus on 12 time Oscar nominee & 3 time winner Colleen Atwood for today's trivia post.As first reported on this site,and since echoed everywhere on other sites for years now,one of the most delightful if idiosyncratic Oscar facts is that Ms Atwood doesnotwin the Oscar unless she is competing against Oscar'sother12 time nominee & 3 time winner,Sandy Powell,and vice versa.We thought this endearing stat would be dismantled last season via eitherCarolorCinderellafor Sandy Powell but she lost both bids with her peer Atwood out of the race.This season Powell is sitting one out (she had no films released in 2016) while Atwood returns to the short list withFantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Curiously the situations are reversed next year when Sandy Powell returns with two likely sartorial showcases...

Stream This: Bachelorette Married to the Warrior Mobs in Chinatown

It's that time again when we receive a new batch of instant movies to watch.As per usual Amazon Prime is running circles around Netflix in terms of selection because Netflix's focus has long since shifted from movies and TV to movies and TV that they create themselves.After becoming the 21st century Blockbuster they ditched it to become the new HBO.Which is fine except those of us who like to watch movies need better streaming services that function more like the way rental houses used to so that we can find the movies we want when we want them.

Okay.Let's play our game of freeze framing the new streaming selections at random moments and seeing what comes up,no second guessing...


-Oh no,I'm not talking to you.At all.
-I just waited up all night for you!
- Oh She waited all night?How Cinder-fucking-rella.

I need more of you to share my pain of having watched this.Sacrifice yourselves immediately so that we may discuss.

Seven more streaming entertainments of vastly varying quality after the jump...
