If you’re jonesing for some David Fincher, check out House of Cards, which plays on Netflix in a week. It stars Kevin Spacey in one of his creepiest incarnations yet.  I like nice Spacey but I love creepy Spacey best.  Fincher directs the first three episodes but then different directors take the wheel.  Fincher and the series were profiled in the NY Times recently, Washington Post writes up the show,…

As I was reading this story it occurred to me that the Republicans will try to use ye aulde false equivalency to try to say that the airing of this film, Seal Team Six two days before the election is as bad as a cable company in Ohio showing the propaganda fakumentary, Obama’s America 2016. It isn’t. One is based on a true story. The other is political propaganda. Here…

Tippi Hedren’s Screen Test

Tippi Hedren’s Screen Test

Read More

If you’re watching The Girl on HBO you’ll have seen the screen test where Hitch directs Tippi Hedren. Hedren appears here far more flirtatious and sexy than Siena Miller plays her, however Miller’s performance is touching and vulnerable.

Leave it up to the private sector only and it morphs into Keeping up with the Kardashians…

(NYT)  The film,  Seal Team Six: The…

Here is the new poster and news from the NY Times: “David Fincher, the director of “The Social Network,” “Zodiac” and “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” and an executive producer for “House…
