Q&A: LT. HARRIET OF ‘OPIUM’ CRUISES INTO EARTH NIGHTLY

The adults-only show, which recently celebrated its first anniversary in Vegas, brings top entertainment with a funky science fiction backdrop to The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Sunday to Monday.

Movie Review: Climax

By Victoria Alexander Gaspar Noé is intoxicating and CLIMAX is brilliant. A dazzling evocative, creative sensation. It will influence filmmakers and heralds a new, totally visceral experience. CLIMAX cannot be missed, but be warned, it’s not a Hollywood movie. I brought a copy of Noé’s I STAND ALONE (1998), and that is saying something since film critics get a vast […]

Movie Review: US

Movie Review: US

By Victoria Alexander Jordan Peele does the miraculous: his follow up to GET OUT does not cheat his fans. And if you can dope out the twist, it’s terrific. The two people I saw US with couldn’t understand the twisty ending. I tried to explain how clever it was under the logic of a horror movie. […]

Review: LEAVING NEVERLAND on HBO

By Josh Muchly Disclaimer: The following is not a defense of any individual who grooms, abuses or silences children. Upshot: Dan Reed’s two-part, four-hour documentary LEAVING NEVERLAND explores the claims of abuse against Michael Jackson by Wade Robson and James Safechuck. Highpoint: the story surrounding the accusations.  It is utterly fascinating getting to know Wade and James […]

Movie Review: GLORIA BELL

Movie Review: GLORIA BELL

By Victoria Alexander An anthem for gorgeous, independent women memorialized by the magnificent Julianne Moore. When we first meet Sebastián Lelio’s fabulous Gloria Bell (Julianne Moore), she is at a small nightclub bar. The club is a well-guarded secret in L.A. – it’s a hook-up dance club only for singles in their 50s and 60s. Where are […]

Review: A Madea Family Funeral

Review: A Madea Family Funeral

By Kevin Fahey When Tyler Perry announced that his 11th Madea film would be his last, I mourned. Not because of the film’s funeral, but because there would be no more Madea, that wisecracking, brutally honest, sarcastic matriarch of her wayward crazy family. I’ll also miss Perry’s great impersonations of relatives such as this film’s […]
