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

Posterized: Liza Minnelli

by Nathaniel R

Some people's talents are so supersized that they're destined for fame.Others are born right into it.In the delicious nutty case of Liza Minnelli it was both.She was famous at birth,being the first child of a superstar couple (Movie star Judy Garland and celebrated director Vincente Minnelli) but later her talents proved that she would have become LIZA even if she'd been born to a phone operator and a brick-layer.

Liza is currently back in select movie theaters as herself in the documentaryHalston(2019).But we're here to look back today.You can actually catch baby Liza (uncredited) at the end of the Judy Garland musicalIn the Good Old Summertime (1949) but her film debut proper came in 1968 in the Albert Finney comedyCharlie Bubbles.

How many of her movies have you seen?Every poster is after the jump but since she's an all platform star we included notes about other major work where it applied...

One Film,One New York

Have you heard about NYC's fun new free arts event?On September 13th they'll be playing one famous shot-in-and taking-place-in New York film,chosen by the public,all over the city in all five boroughs,at the public screening outdoor venues and in some theaters.The five options areThe Wedding Banquet(1993),On the Town(1949),Desperately Seeking Susan(1985),New York New York(1977) orCrooklyn(1994) and were selected by the film critics of the New York Times.You can vote on which one herebut the best thing about it is whichever film wins,the public wins because they're all good films.

Where would your vote go?I'm still trying to decide on mine.I'm only sad that this date is during the Toronto International Film Festival so I'll have to miss it.*cries*

"Silence"is Shorter,Still Possibly Golden

a new image from the film - our first look at Adam Driver

In very good news for butts of all shapes and sizes,news came this morning that Martin Scorsese'sSilenceis no longer going to be his longest feature film ever.That dubious honor will continue to be held by the excruciatingly long winded duo ofCasinoandWolf of Wall Street.It seems that Marty and his trusted editor Thelma Schoonmaker have whittled away some 22 minutes from the earlier reported running time of 3 hours and 1 minute (or thereabouts)...

Golden Globes 77.A Look Back

Editors Note: Nathaniel is running behind on the Cinematography Special - but don't missyesterday's installmentorTim's huge ongoing post at Antagony & Ecstasyso we'll resume tomorrow night.In the meantime enjoy Eric's look back at the Globes in '77,since its our Year of the Month.

Peter O'Toole with Globe winners Jane Fonda (Julia),Richard Burton (Equus),and Marsha Mason (The Goodbye Girl)

Globe/Oscar comparisons are always fun to see because though thegroups have different sensibilities,inevitable industry hype influences both.Yet the Globes arerarely revisited outside of their years since Oscar is the one people obsess on when they look back,"the one that matters"as it were.Let's correct that as we gaze at 1977...

"But the World Goes Round"

To any one of you out there having a rough time of it...this too shall pass.Take this electricifying piece of comfort from Liza Minnelli in Martin Scorsese'sNew York New York(1977) on her birthday.And who would know better than her?

Somebody loses and somebody wins
And one day it's kicks,then it's kicks in the shins
But the planet spins,and the world goes 'round-
But the world goes 'round
But the world goes 'round

Sometimes your dreams get broken in pieces
But that doesn't matter at all
Take it from me,there's still gonna be
A summer,a winter,a spring and a fall
