Being John Malkovich

Written by Armond White on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

Wishing on A Star Years of following music video did not prepare me for Spike Jonze’s Being John Malkovich. Music video skeptics might easily have predicted Fight Club, a flashy, incoherent extravaganza–cuz that’s all most videos come down to. But Jonze’s feature film debut makes him Hollywood’s unpredictable Spike. While most critics use the term [&hellip

Liberal/Miserable

Written by Godfrey Cheshire on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

Directed by I.B. Mizrable The most emblematic bit of action in Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s Rosetta occurs twice, and both times it’s not of great thematic moment, just curious–oddly curious. The Belgian film concerns a teenage girl who’s obsessed with getting a job, and who occasionally fishes in a river near the trailer park where [&hellip

A Hideous and Ghastly Halloween Week

Written by Adam Heimlich on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

For pretty much that reason I advise steering clear of the annual Halloween Parade. Though it supposedly has an illustrious history and remains a queer-culture staple, I’ve never experienced anything at this event besides police barricades–tons of ’em–penning in thousands and thousands of outer-borough beef cattle and woo-girls.
