Sundance So Far: 'Wiener-Dog,' Bizarre Horror Comedy 'The Greasy Strangler' And Craig Robinson's Career Best
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Other than the festival's opening-night Norman Lear documentary, we have yet to see a Sundance movie that bowls us over. We're sitting down with the folks behind the mystifying "Swiss Army Man" (including Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe, who plays a farting corpse), the buzzy frat-hazing drama "Goat" (including Nick Jonas and Ben Schnetzer) and "Christine" stars Michael C. Hall and Rebecca Hall, so look out for coverage of those movies later. Of what we've seen, nothing seems destined for mainstream ascendancy. But there's enough to like in "Morris from America," and many Todd Solondz fans were in heaven after Friday's "Wiener-Dog" premiere. Here are a few words on those, plus the mind-boggiing horror comedy "The Greasy Strangler," which is as bizarre as its title sounds. "Wiener-Dog" Written and directed by Todd Solondz Starring Danny DeVito, Greta Gerwig, Julie Delpy, Tracy Letts, Kieran Culkin, Ellen Burstyn, Zosia Mamet and Keaton Nigel Cooke It takes effort to make a movi ...

The Unexpected Wisdom Of Kevin McCallister
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Once, in the John Hughes-imagined suburbs of Chicago, a young boy awoke in December to find out that he made his family disappear. If you can't picture that iconic line whispered in the voice of Macaulay Culkin circa 1990, then I can't help you. But if you can -- nay, if the mere suggestion of the original "Home Alone" made John Williams' compositions start playing in your head, and made you pull out the aftershave for your most realistic "AHHHH!" face, then welcome. Culkin gave the performance of his career thus far in this film (to be topped, some argue, in "Home Alone 2") as a precocious personification of id: all animal emotion ("I'm living alone! I'm living alone!") and speaking without thinking ("I hope I never see any of you jerks again!"). It was a performance that delighted '90s kids, a fact confirmed once more in the dark Long Island theater where I sat last Sunday, surrounded by youngsters who fell into fits at each moment of random violence that befell the Wet ...

Actors in the Studio
Chicago Times - over 2 years
(©2014 Alex Garcia/Chicago Tribune)   (L-R) Kieran Culkin, Tavi Gevinson and Michael Cera came to the Tribune Tower to be interviewed by Chris Jones for the Theater Loop blog, to talk about their new play at the Steppenwolf Theatre called, "This is Our Youth". It's a play that explores the lives of aimless and adrift young people. My assignment was to photograph the actors after the video interview was done.     At first the idea was to just take them somewhere quickly (since celebrities often offer little time). But as picture editor Mike Zajakowski and I talked, it seemed like a studio picture would be more efficent at capturing the mood of the play. In the studio I decided to create areas of darkness and light that could represent the confusion that often accompanies the transition to adulthood. Having them look in different directions would add to this, also giving a sense of the different paths they would take. The negative space above them I thought would add to their ...

Would You See This Remake With Jennifer Lawrence?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
What's with today, today? Monday, April 8, is Rex Manning Day, a holiday created to commemorate the film "Empire Records." The one-crazy-day comedy -- which focuses on a ragtag group of record store employees, the tyranny of chain stores and the power of Gin Blossoms and The Flying Lizards -- was released in October of 1995, making this the 17th Rex Manning Day in recorded history. But we mustn't dwell on numbers like that. No, not today. Not on Rex Manning Day. To celebrate this year's Rex Manning Day, HuffPost Entertainment has decided to shock you (shock you, shock you) with some deviant behavior: an imagined 2013 version of "Empire Records," featuring some of today's brightest stars. We'll say no more, mon amour, and get to the fake casting: Shailene Woodley as the Corey Mason (originally played by Liv Tyler) Jennifer Lawrence as the Gina (originally played by Renee Zellweger) Aubrey Plaza as Debra (originally played by Robin Tunney) Skylar Astin as th ...
