Soundtracking:Southland Tales

"If you'll pardon the bluntness,I am still convinced that Richard Kelly was masturbating the entire time he was filming this movie."-PoliVamp

"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

There's a link in my soup

This is Just My Face is on sale nowNPRGabourey Sidibe has a book out,now "This is Just My Face: Try Not To Stare"(great title).It's about her rise to fame,body image,and being confused with her fame-making character inPreciouswhich she finds both frustrating and powerful
Time Out New Yorkpublishes its own TONY* nominations.Get it,their initials are TONY.Not to be confused with the actual Tony Award nominations which are due tomorrow to honor the best of Broadway.Consider this their "should be nominated"article
The Retro Setlooks at the new documentaryMifune: The Last Samurai,narrated by Keanu Reeves,and now available to stream on Netflix.Can't wait to watch this.

Deadlinerepublished an interesting history of the making ofSilence of the Lambs.I didn't know that the project started with Gene Hackman who was going to directandstar.
Varietyshared a really good interview with Geena Davis.I love what she says about the gender neutral movement with some awards bodies,combining male and female actors into the same category.It's a terrible idea and Geena eloquently explains why
PlaybillChita Rivera flashes back to herWest Side Storyaudition in the 1950s,the show that put her on the map
Awards Dailylooks at the prospects for Limited Series Actor...a far more shallow field than its Actress counterpart this year but at least that means its looking good for Riz Ahmed and Ewan McGregor
PlaybillCome From Away,a new Broadway musical that's expected to do very well in tomorrow's Tony nominations,is getting its own documentary feature calledCome From Away: From Gander to Broadway.It's the true story of a group of strangers diverted into a small town after the 9/11 terrorist attacks grounded airplanes.

Finally...
Interviewhas Kate Hudson interview her mom Goldie Hawn.It starts enjoyably silly and familial but gets deep into "mindfulness."Goldie is almost back onscreen (Snatched) after a 15 year retirement (that they're somehow calling a "hiatus").Love this bit about how therapy (which she started around the time ofLaugh-In) helped her keep sane despite becoming a household name in her early 20s:

I realized that the way people see me,as a star,has nothing to do with me.It's like a Rorschach test,like I am something they can identify with,learn to love,learn to hate,learn to resent ...but I gave it back to them.So if somebody said to me,"Oh,I love you!"—that makes me happy to see them happy,but I wouldn't take it in as something that builds my ego.And that's how I stabilized myself.

Have a lovely Monday,everyone.How do you plan to "stabilize"yourself this week?
