American Film Fans Abide: Six Small Movies Cutting Through the Mediocrity
Huffington Post - 5 months
Like the Stranger once said to the Dude, "Sometimes you eat the bear. And sometimes the bear eats you." Consumers of American film got to eat a lot of good bear meat back in 2015 (that is not in any way meant to be a reference to The Revenant.) But in 2016, damn, we've been served up to the bear on a big-ass platter. There has been so much mediocrity coming from American filmmakers this year that it's hard to even get worked up about it. So much pleasant, competent, boring crap. Whether it's the latest Bridget Jones (and I know that's a British/American co-production directed by a Welsh woman) or the newest remake (that would be The Magnificent Seven), finding something original and engaging seems like a tougher and tougher mission in 2016. I know that many times film-goers are just looking for a easy diversion for a few hours between dinner and - depending on your wont - sex, gaming, or a midnight sundae. No problem with that. Two of my favorite movies of the year, Popstar: Never ...

Gay 'SNL' Writer Brings His Personal Journey To The Big Screen
Huffington Post - 5 months
Head ”Saturday Night Live” writer Chris Kelly has written and directed a new film that’s earning raves for the complex, nuanced queer protagonist at its heart.   Released Sept. 9, “Other People” follows David (Jesse Plemons), a television writer who returns to California to care for his ailing mother (Molly Shannon) after splitting from his boyfriend. Once David arrives, however, he’s forced to confront his conservative father (Bradley Whitford), who never quite accepted his son’s sexuality. (View the trailer for “Other People” above)  The movie, which debuted at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival in January, has already earned praise from critics. The Chicago Sun-Times called it “smart, lovely, funny, occasionally edgy, slightly cynical and ultimately heart-tugging,” while Variety praised it for featuring “gay characters as three-dimensional figures.”  Check out a scene from the film below, then scroll down to keep reading.   The first open ...

Sundance So Far: Opening Night Brings A Stunning Norman Lear Doc And Lukewarm Cancer Dramedy 'Other People'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The hills of Park City are alive with the sounds of the Sundance Film Festival, which began on Thursday night and becomes an all-day affair on Friday. The Huffington Post is on the scene, having caught two films that seem destined to produce a lot of chatter over the next 11 days.  "Other People" Written and directed by Chris Kelly Starring Jesse Plemons, Molly Shannon, Bradley Whitford, June Squibb, Maude Apatow, Zach Woods and Retta “Tonight I’m seeing ‘Other People'” (get it?) was the joke du jour among Park City’s press crowd on Thursday, when “Saturday Night Live” and “Broad City” writer Chris Kelly’s debut film opened Sundance.

Bradley Cooper Talks About The Fake Baby In 'American Sniper'
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Bradley Cooper was nominated for an Oscar for his much-talked about performance as Chris Kyle in "American Sniper." But there's one thing people just can't stop talking about in the movie -- the fake baby used as a prop.   Cooper visited "The Ellen Show" on Monday and discussed the fake baby gaffe with the host. "I literally, I couldn't believe it," said Cooper, who wiggled the fake baby's arm at one point during a scene to make it look more real. "I couldn't believe that we were working with the plastic baby. I was just like, 'This is nuts.'"  In between laughs, Cooper continued, "Eat your heart out, 'Muppets." Watch Cooper talk about the experience more in the clip:  Sienna Miller, Cooper's co-star in the movie, was on "Ellen" last week and also talked about the fake baby.  "It looked like something from 'Alien,'" said Miller.  Correction: A previous version of this post said that Bradley Cooper played Chris Kelly in "American Sniper." He played Chris ...

Missouri Considers Repealing Harsh Possession Laws To Allow Recreational Marijuana Use
Huffington Post - about 3 years
In Missouri, which has some of the nation's harshest marijuana laws, there are two separate efforts underway to legalize marijuana for recreational use. A bill filed last week by Rep. Chris Kelly (D-Columbia) would allow adults over age 21 to legally possess up to a pound of marijuana or hashish for personal use, and to grow up to eight cannabis plants at home. The bill, HB 1659, would also set up a system of licensed dispensaries, where every county could have one pot dispensary for every 2,500 people. The bill would also impose a 25 percent tax on sales of cannabis at the wholesale level. Kelly told The Huffington Post that his experience as a circuit judge changed his position on legalization. "I saw a lot of marijuana cases," he said. Currently in Missouri, you can spend up to a year in prison for possession of a single joint, even if it's your first offense. In 2011, about 20,000 people were busted for marijuana crimes in the state, and over 90 percent of those arrests were ...

High tech turning work/life balance obsolete
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
Programmers - who are known to sleep under their desks, wear pajamas all day, and code for 16 hours straight without standing up - have long been pushing against workplace mores. Traditional labor unions have worked to strengthen the work/life divide, fighting for such separations as weekends and eight-hour workdays. [...] tech executives, who pay their employees partly in perks like haircuts, gym equipment and snacks, have built cultures that blur that divide. Under his Nerd Life Balance philosophy, Floyd doesn't try to fight this new blend of office and home but argues that programmers can still start families (teach your kids to code) and live normal lives (think of exercise as a pleasure as great as coding). Chris Kelly, director of developer relations for software company New Relic, agreed that the traditional work/life divide is an antiquated vision.

Judges consider 2012 law from “post-Snowden” perspective
Ft.com Financial Times Blogs - over 3 years
Federal judges evaluated the privacy and free speech implications of a California law that would create a database of online identities for sex offenders, noting the shift in public sentiment around such data collection since voters passed the law last November and today, as revelations about the US’s monitoring of online communications continue to emerge. “We’re living in a post-Snowden world,” said Judge Jay Bybee of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday, referencing the surveillance practices revealed by former CIA contractor Edward Snowden and questioning whether a database of email addresses and online identities intended to help solve sex crimes could be used to monitor people’s political speech. Mr Bybee was one of three judges hearing oral arguments in a case about Proposition 35, the California law that requires convicted sex offenders to register their email addresses and user names for online news sites and social networks. The initiative was passed by a majority ...

Chris Kelly: Anti-Choice Politics Aren't a Cause; They're a Form of Fundraising Yield Management
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Ignorance gets a bad rap. Augustine says ignorance isn't just a cause of sin, it's a sin itself - a sin of omission - and he's right, of course. Still, we throw the word "stupid" around a lot, like it's a bad thing, especially when it comes to people like Arizona Congressman Trent Franks. And Augustine can say Trent Franks should do something about being ignorant, but it's easy for Augustine to say. Trent Franks, the new face of American anti-abortion politics -- is a moron. In cultures less progressive than ours, Trent Franks would be chained up in the backyard, sifting cat shit out of sand. But, paradoxically - and no one loves a paradox like God -- in the age of the internet, and of unlimited political fundraising and spending, Trent Franks' blatant, radiant ignorance isn't a handicap; it's a gift. It's an invaluable tool for identifying the most gullible people, separating them from the regular dopes, and then separating them from their money. He rakes the flo ...
