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

Beauty vs Beast: Lesbian Love Song

Jason Adams fromMNPPhere -- at the Tribeca Film Fest last year I weirdly reviewed two movies involving Alessandro Nivola and Orthodox Judaism.The first one is calledTo Dustand Nivola (along with his wife actress Emily Mortimer) produced it -- it starsSon of Saul's Géza Röhrig and Matthew Broderick as an extremely odd couple grappling with the afterlife.Here is my review,and you can watch the trailerover here.To Dustis finally hitting some theaters this weekend,and I highly recommend seeking it out.I really dig it.

The other movieI reviewedat Tribeca 2018 was Sebastian Lelio'sDisobedience,which came out last year and which in a just world we'd be celebrating its several Oscar nominations just about now.Hey I did my part --Disobediencegot mentions in both end-of-year polls I have a say in,The Team Experience Awardshere on this site as well asthe Dorian Awardsfor the GALECA guild of LGBT critics.But being a great film is its own reward,andDisobediencewill be remembered for a very long time as such.Now let's face off its Rachels -- McAdams is Esti,the one who stayed,and Weisz is Ronit,the one who went away...

PREVIOUSLYLast week'sCan You Ever Forgive Mepollwas as close as two friends sweeping up cat turds could be,but Melissa McCarthy got the best of Richard E Grant in the end with 53% of the vote.Said/3rtful:

"Unprepared for how emotionally affected I would be by this movie.I think the casting of McCarthy and those initial cut trailers gave no clue of the emotional wallop this movie carries."

Tribeca 2018: To Dust

byJason Adams

Shmuel is a sinner.He keeps repeating that.This is a sin,this is a sin.His children are convinced he's possessed,and he kind of is.He haunts graveyards;he rows them into the middle of a lake and makes them cry.He stuffs a plastic bag over the head of a large pig and suffocates it in front of a community college science professor.Things are nuts!

Shmuel's wife has just died from cancer,see,and he's having troubles reconciling what that means.Not in the spiritual sense - Shmuel is a Hasidic man,and such things probably ought to concern him more than they do - but in a more practical sense...

Beauty vs Beast: Political Animals

Jason fromMNPPhere,posting today's edition of "Beauty vs Beast"from deep down inside my underground election bunker -- it's kind of like10 Cloverfield Laneonly depending on which way things go tomorrow I'm possibly going to be dissolvingmyselfin acid.Until then,cheers!And don't go blind from drunkeness.

But first I've got to put in front of you the most obvious poll for this week's contest that I could possibly have gone with.When it's right,it's right,ya know?In 1999 Alexander Payne droppedElection,his second-best movie,on the world and it's resonated deeply and profoundly every four years since.There's a character for every type - Paul Metzler's a little bit Bush and a little bit Obama;I like Tammy too much to attach Trump to her but their shared anti-establishment rhetoric is pretty on-point.And as for Tracy Flick,well...obviously.

But for "Beauty vs Beast"it only make sense to face off the real adversaries of the film.There are morals,and there are ethics,and it's one lone man's job to police the distinction...

PREVIOUSLYLast week we tackledthe love-struck teenaged maniacsofHeavenly Creaturesand I forced you to split the duo in two like you're they're heteronormative parents side-eyeing their affections - it was close (I was hoping for a tie!) but Winslet's Juliet squeaked it out with 54% over Lynskey's Pauline;seeing as how Juliet is ever so slightly roped into the killing by the more enthusiastic Pauline I suppose we can understand.But said our hostNathaniel(and I'm prone to agree):

"I love this movie with all my heart (the best of its year if you ask me) and this is an awful thing to be expected to answer!Cruel,Jason,cruel."

Tony Nominees 2011

Matthew Broderick and Anika Noni Rose announce the nominees

Brightand early,that's how all awards nominations are announced.Tony winners Matthew Broderick and Anika Noni Rose,read the names at 8:30 AM.Broderick,who had a very famous run as a movie star in the 80s,actually won his Tony in 1996 for the musical revival ofHow To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.Sixteen years later,another revival of that same musical opens with another famous young movie actor,the boy wizard himself Daniel Radcliffe.But he wasn't nominated so no history repeating itself this time.

New musicalsThe Book of Mormon(from theSouth Parkguys),The Scottsboro Boysand the raved revival ofAnything Goeswith Sutton Foster and Joel Grey (still doing 8 shows a week at 79 years of age) lead the nomination tally with 14,12 and 9 nominations respectively.

Notable Celebrity Snubs:The Tony nominating committee has gotten a lot of flak over the years for valuing performers with off-stage celebrity over those with impressive Broadway credits.But this year maybe they're slightly working against the FAME trend.Celebrities Robin Williams (Benghal Tiger) and Kathleen Turner (High) were both left off their category's lineups and obviously Harry Potter fans won't be happy to see Radcliffe snubbed.James Earl Jones was also snubbed for his Driving Miss Daisy performance.

Swenson,Butler and Radcliffe.All snubbed for roles you've seen at the movies!

Stage-Star Snubs:Will Swenson (Priscilla) and Aaron Tveit (Catch Me If You Can) were undone by competing against their co-leads (who were nominated).Future movie star Benjamin Walker,who ruled the nation onstage with huge charisma inBloody Bloody Andrew Jacksonshould have been recognized. FormerXanaduheadliner Kerry Butler,who is always a joy to watch,did not win a nomination forCatch Me If You Can(she was in the Amy Adams role) continuing her rough relationship with Tony.Xanaduaside,she's been snubbed the other three times she's been eligible despite well received work or hit shows.What's that about?

Triple Crown Alerts?None that I see on first run through.Vanessa Redgrave,nominated for Jessica Tandy's Oscar winning Driving Miss Daisy role,already has the Oscar-Emmy-Tony triple.So does Al Pacino who is nominated again forThe Merchant of Venice.Frances McDormand,nominated forGood People,only has the Oscar so she'd still need an Emmy if she wins this year's Lead Drama Actress prize.

Sutton Foster Break!I'm sorry but I justl-o-v-eher.Seeing her onstage is always a thrill.Here she is rehearsing with Oscar and Tony winner Joel Grey.

A complete list of nominations is after the jump divvied up into Plays and Musicals.

How I Feel / How I Wish I Felt

As acted out by the infrequently employed Matthew Broderick...

How I Feel / How I Wish I FeltApologies that it's so slow going here for the past two days.I haven't been stung by a bee but I had an allergy attack that was so bad yesterday that I spent the day rubbing my eyes and trying to make out words on the screen through a cloud of eyedrops,fuzziness,tears and sneezing.I woke up with one of my eyes sealed shut this morning!I'd much rather be singing in the shower with not a care in the world.

Off to the pharmacy for heavy duty allergy meds -- anyone else suffering?I haven't had a problem like this since I was nine or ten.What the hell is in the air?-- after which posting will resume. the meantime,please note that I listened to your requests and have reinstalled the"comment du jour"to the new site's sidebar.I'll try to update daily.I've also updatedthe movie calendar(easiest way to view is clicking the "agenda"tab)
