John Farr: Dressing Up: The 10 Best Period Costume Movies
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
One of the singular joys of living in New York City is The Metropolitan Museum of Art, conveniently situated right across the Park from us. I was reminded of this on Wednesday when I attended their "Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity" exhibition. Combining artwork and costumes, it showed how the finest French impressionist painters of the late-19th century were celebrating Paris as the epicenter of style and fashion in their work, by painting not just glorious gardens and vistas, but the colorful, elaborate outfits worn by the city's most prominent women. Admittedly, I'm a sucker for the Impressionists. Were I Bill Gates, I'd be snapping up any Monet or Renoir I could lay my hands on. And though you won't see me at any "Fashion Week" events, I also love and revere timeless fashion and style, by which I mean: a) Clean styles, cuts and color sense that worked in 1930, and will work in 2030. b) Fashions from the past -- say, two centuries (I'm less inter ...

Julian Sands' poetic portrait of Pinter
San Francisco Chronicle - about 4 years
Julian Sands' poetic portrait of Pinter In more than 100 films, ranging from the high art of A Room With a View and Leaving Las Vegas to the lowbrow fun of Warlock and Warlock: Pinter, the Nobel Prize-winning playwright who died on Christmas Eve 2008 at age 78, had an extraordinary career that spanned 50 years and included 30-odd plays, including "Betrayal" and "The Homecoming," and some two dozen screenplays. [...] how did the 55-year-old Sands, a British actor who calls Los Angeles home, end up touring the globe with a one-man tribute to Pinter directed by the actor John Malkovich? On the phone from his L.A. home, Sands says that in 2005, he had returned to the stage after 20-odd years of devoting himself to film and television acting. Suffering from esophageal cancer at the time, Pinter's voice was not up to the challenge of a recital, so the writer worked with Sands on a selection of poetry that he would read. Edinburgh invitation"The piece was received w ...

Boom Tron - over 4 years
It’s a crime procedural casting roundup today! News of guest stars coming to CBS’s top crime series is pouring in, revealing who we can look forward to seeing on CSI, Criminal Minds and Person of Interest. The first on the list is Michael Gross, heading to CSI to portray the president of the University D.B. Russell’s son is attending. We head to the school when Russell’s son joins a basketball team, only for his coach to be murdered. Ted Danson says the boy “gets involved in a triangle of sorts without even knowing it.” I’m not sure what he means by “triangle.” A love triangle springs to mind, but the context doesn’t seem to fit. Showing up in Criminal Minds is Designing Women’s Meshach Taylor as a homeless Vietnam veteran who ends up helping the team put a face to a killer. According to TV Guide, Taylor is an old friend of star Joe Mantegna, who pitched the idea for the episode Taylor appears in.
