The Stories We Told Ourselves: American Politics In 2016's Movies
Huffington Post - about 2 months
You can be highbrow. You can be lowbrow. But can you ever just be brow? Welcome to Middlebrow, a weekly examination of pop culture. We tend to love platitudes about fiction. Ken Kesey has been quoted saying, “To hell with facts! We need stories!” The late Alan Rickman declared that “it’s a human need to be told stories.” Joan Didion’s rendition of the same sentiment may be the most famous: “We tell ourselves stories in order to live.” It’s easy to deem 2016 a year of unpleasant stories. In America, we recounted prized anecdotes about David Bowie, Prince and Carrie Fisher upon their respective deaths; we watched as an alarming faction of the country proved its media illiteracy by perpetuating one phony news report after the next; we listened to the heartache that followed shootings in Orlando, Baton Rouge and Charlotte; most notably, we concocted narratives to explain the jarring election of Donald Trump, a bloviator who spun enough yarns to appeal to the electorat ...

From Hopeless Places To The Open Road, 'American Honey' Gives Misfits A Home
Huffington Post - 5 months
Imagine you’re a college freshman enjoying spring break on the rowdy beaches of Panama City, Florida. A middle-aged British woman approaches. She asks if you’d quite like to star in a film, something you ― a Texas-born psychology major working shifts at a Mexican chain restaurant ― have never considered pursuing. You can’t say no, right? Less than a year later, you’re walking the red carpet at Cannes, where said film nets that British woman, whose name is Andrea Arnold, her third jury prize from the festival. (The others were for 2006’s “Red Road” and 2009’s “Fish Tank.”) And a few months after that French pageant, you and your cast mates are having a pseudo spring break of your own at the Toronto Film Festival, where a party bus takes you around town and the after-party for your movie’s premiere, set at a country bar whose rowdiness rivals that of Florida’s beaches, becomes one of the week’s highlights.  The movie in question, “American Honey,” which opens theatrically Sept. 3 ...
