Marriage StoryReview

"They're saying this is for Adam Driver what Kramer vs Kramer was for Dustin Hoffman.More about him than about her.  Scarlett,to me,is the open question.By now it's Driver vs Phoenix for best actor."- Melchiades -Andrew

A Ryan Murphy Political Comedy Quasi-musical?

Chrishere.Ryan Murphy is a television titan withAmerican Crime Story: Versacecurrently drawing high praise and umpteen projects in the pipeline,including a Sarah Paulson-led Nurse Ratched series.This next one already sounds kookier than the rest - Netflix has given a greenlight toThe Politician,an hour-long comedic satire.

ACS: Gianni Versace - "A Random Killing"

by Jorge Molina

The third episode ofAmerican Crime Storyopens with Judith Light selling perfume in a home shopping commercial.

And what initially seems like a campy an even playful image,slowly devolves into one of the most chilling and disturbing episodes of television (and the best one in this season so far),anchored by outstanding guest performances,strong thematic elements,and as yet another reminder that Darren Criss is miles away from the gelled Warbler ofGlee...

"ACS: The Assassination of Gianni Versace",Episode 1

by Jorge Molina.

The first installment ofAmerican Crime Storymade such a deep dent in culture by taking the O.J.Simpson murder trial,a case that was heavily imprinted in popular consciousness,and used it to analyze issues of race,sexism,and tabloid culture that still resonate today.

The second season focuses on,as the title establishes,the assassination of famed designer Gianni Versace in 1997 (shortly after the O.J.case) by serial killer Andrew Cunanan.And if the first episode is any indication of what the season as a whole will attempt,it will both broaden and narrow the cultural conversations that the first season tackled.

On the premiere episode,we get a first look into the mind of a murderer,the house of an icon,and the jet of a queen...

How Necessary is "American Horror Story: Cult"?

By Spencer Coile

A Ryan Murphy production is anything but subtle.They rely on over-the-top scares,extravagant set pieces,and his usual band of actors (notably Sarah Paulson).American Horror Story: Cultis no exception.It begins with the bleakest opening imaginable,a night that will live in infamy: 2016 election night.As characters rejoice,cry,vent their frustrations,it felt as though Murphy was attempting to hone in on the social panic that swept the country in the wake of the election results.It was a bold opening,one that hit close to home.

And then the rest of the episode happened.

Ryan Murphy Is "Cuckoo"for Netflix

Chrishere.In what is surely one of the most side-eye worthy prequel adaptations to come along in an era full of them,Ryan Murphy is creating an original story forOne Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nestvillain Nurse Ratched.The series will be Murphy's first for Netflix (surprising it's taken this long,right?) and run for 18 episodes over two seasons.The title?You guessed it:Ratched.

On the plus side,the series will be another collaboration between Murphy and main muse Sarah Paulson.If the project seems wholy unasked for or in ill-fitted hands,we can rest assured that Paulson can deliver nothing less than a worthy portrayal of a legendary character.Maybe Nurse Ratched won't turn out to have been so evil after all - at least before Murphy got his hands on her.And if long running series are as daunting for you as they sometimes are for me,the promise of only an 18 episode run is glorious indeed.The series begins filming next year with Murphy set to direct the pilot.

Can Murphy and Paulson do justice to Louise Fletcher's Oscar winning performance?

Olivia de Havilland Sues "Feud"

Photo by Damon Winter via LA TimesHere's a deliciously fitting coda to the first season of Ryan Murphy'sFeud.Olivia de Havilland,who was played by Catherine Zeta-Jones (in a bewilderingly bad performance given CZJ's talent!),is suing Ryan Murphy and FX for the unauthorized use of her identity!She definitely did not like being portrayed on the bitchy side.Her lawyer says:

...the FX series puts words in the mouth of Miss de Havilland which are inaccurate and contrary to the reputation she has built over an 80-year professional life,specifically refusing to engage in gossip mongering about other actors in order to generate media attention for herself."

While Bette Davis's daughter B.D.(played by Kiernan Shipka) and one of Joan Crawford's twin girls Catherine (played by Chelsea Summer) are still alive,Olivia is the only celebrity portrayed inFeud: Bette vs Joanwho is still living (aside from a couple of cameos like actors depicting Eva Marie Saint and Rip Torn if you want to get nitpicky).The two time Oscar winner,who we celebrated festively this time last year,turns 101 tomorrrow.Her birthday wish is apparently to stick one to FX.If she really wanted to do damage she might've announced this beforeEmmy votingclosed,though.
