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

Stage Door: Where are the original musicals?

by Nathaniel R

Uh-oh...TheTony Awardslast month wrapped up the 2018/2019 season with a reminder that original musicals were doing just fine (The Promis getting a film version,Hadestownremains a very hot ticket,andTootsiehas its diehard fans).Strangely,then,the 2019/2020 Broadway season is looking troubling from this distance.Of the six new musicals currently scheduled for the seasonNONEhave original scores....

Soundtracking: Moulin Rouge!

byChris Feil

Perhaps it's easy to forget how revolutionary Baz Luhrman'sMoulin Rouge!was in 2001.The thing about masterpieces is their legacy sometimes overshadows the context that birthed them.But at the time,the musical was a massive gamble and creative leap,helping to relaunch the genre that had died a slow death at the box office and to cultural  cinematic tastes.Just as Luhrman's William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet had aggressively re-imagined its text for the MTV set,he delivered something even more drug-fevered to the musical,shattering notions of what the genre's limitations were and how it could exist in the modern era.

Musicals may be more commonplace now,but they have yet to be as audacious since.But as much as Luhrman's trippy,frenetic stylings play nearly twenty (gasp!) years later as its most obvious innovations,it was Luhrman's music choices that were the biggest shock to the system for movie musicals.

Doc Corner: The First Female Film Director in 'Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché'

ByGlenn Dunks

For a film about a little-known name of early silent cinema,Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blachésure does come out of the gates swinging.Swinging and sweeping and swooping and spinning and kicking and ecstatically careening through the streets of Paris.The opening passages of Pamela B.Green's revelatory documentary are so frenetically paced that it's almost exhausting.When I posited that none other than Baz Luhrmann'sMoulin Rouge!was an inspiration,the film's own Twitter feed confirmed it.Indeed.

And it's not just the opening,too.The entirety of this film is surprisingly fast-paced,often editing its collage of film clips,archival video,contemporary exploration and talking heads into a dizzying soup of cinematic nostalgia...

Moulin Rouge!'s Stage Life Begins

byChris Feil

We've long been awaiting Baz Luhrman's masterpieceMoulin Rouge!to fulfill the seemingly ancient prophecy to make its way onto the stage.Well,that day has finally arrived as the musical's pre-Broadway tryout begins tonight at Boston's Emerson Colonial Theatre.

We have already been teased byAaron Tveit singing the epic love song "Come What May"in a foggy theatre,but now we have the real goods we've been dying to see: Karen Olivo stepping into the large shoes of Nicole Kidman as the sparkling diamond Satine and a theatre completely transformed to Luhrman excess.While Olivo's costume (designed by this year'sMy Fair LadyTony winner Catherine Zuber) might be somewhat understated from what we might have been hoping to see,we're confident there is further opulence coming once we see what the rest of the show has in store.As for the set,hold on to your hats...
