thenewpornographers: Watch The New Pornographers’ new video for “Dancehall Domine” made by Leblanc + Cudmore! Of the video, Scott Cudmore states, “Sometimes I like watching the b-roll or behind the scenes or outtakes on DVDs and blu-rays…‘Dancehall Domine’ is meant to feel like a whole bunch of those clips sort of strung together as if they’re... - http://elizs.tumblr.com/post...

feministfilmclub: Trailer for Dogfight, 1991. Businessman who stood in front of me in Starbucks line had a ‘90’s-era skater haircut, which reminded me of the skaters I once used to crush on, which reminded me of River Phoenix, which reminded me how great this movie is and that it’s time for a re-watch. - http://elizs.tumblr.com/post...

Pressed to pick out a celebrity who might typify the Madewell girl, Mau chose Kate Bosworth and Rachel Bilson. This does not entirely jibe with my mental picture of my tough immigrant great-grandfather selling stiff denim overalls to New England dockworkers. - http://elizs.tumblr.com/post...

The top two debuts of the fall season so far among viewers under 50 are ABC’s Black-ish and How to Get Away With Murder. Both feature African-American leads. Perhaps network and studio casting directors will keep this in mind next spring. - http://elizs.tumblr.com/post...

The main reason I’d been hesitant to see A Mighty Heart is the casting of Angelina Jolie. Nothing against her as an actress, but having a white actress play a mixed-race woman continues a long history of “whitewashing” in film.

The main reason I’d been hesitant to see A Mighty Heart is the casting of Angelina Jolie. Nothing against her as an actress, but having a white actress play a mixed-race woman continues a long history of “whitewashing” in film. Jolie does a fine job here, mimicing well Mariane Pearl’s French accent and cadence. She plays Mariane as contained and determined during the search, then fierce and raw when she receives the tragic news of her husband’s death. Logically I know that if Jolie hadn’t been involved, the movie might not have ever received wide release. Yet I couldn’t help wondering what qualities an actress of color might have brought to the role.

I loved the book Like Water for Chocolate, with its recipes interspersed in the chapters. The cinematic version is pretty darn good as well (this trailer is probably NSFW… and is also in Spanish), - http://elizs.tumblr.com/post...

Anna May Wong might not be immediately recognizable today unlike some of her contemporaries (she acted alongside Buster Keaton and Marlene Dietrich to name a couple), but she was the first Chinese American movie star and a fashion icon in her own right. Her long and varied career spanned both silent and sound film, television, stage, and radio. In 1922 the New York Times commented,“She should be seen again and often on the screen.” Of course being an Asian-American in the 1920s and 30s severely limited the roles offered to her; anti-miscegenation laws meant she couldn’t be cast as a romantic lead opposite of a white actor. American directors even passed up her as a lead for Chinese roles casting white women to play Chinese characters instead (see German actress Luise Rainer as O-Lan in The Good Earth). Still in the late 1930s, she starred in several B movies for Paramount Pictures, portraying Chinese Americans in a positive light. These smaller-budgeted films could be bolder than the higher-profile releases, and she used this to her advantage to portray successful, professional, Chinese-American characters.
While she was first and foremost an actress, once quoted as saying “I am wedded to my art,” Anna May Wong was also a fashion icon in her day. She cultivated a stylish flapper image and in the 1930s was on various “Best Dressed” lists. When I admire Anna May Wong I appreciate her beauty and her fashion sense, but also admire her talent and ability to thrive in a time when the odds were stacked against her.
  
She’s the best part of The Thief of Bagdad!
This is a pretty terrible trailer, but Mostly Martha is my favorite food movie. I love that Martha is an amazing cook who gets energy from cooking for others and loses her appetite when alone. It’s hard to watch this one on an empty stomach. (and I refuse to watch the American remake) - http://elizs.tumblr.com/post...
Obvious inclusion in the great food movie list: Chocolat. I’d probably like the movie more without Johnny Depp. The book is also very good! - http://elizs.tumblr.com/post...

Of course, Babette’s Feast is probably the most classic of food films. A great story, beautiful food… it’s all wonderful. - http://elizs.tumblr.com/post...
A friend and I were talking about movies where the food is one of the best parts, and I think Eat Drink Man Woman certainly fits under that. Don’t judge the Ang Lee drama by this cheesy trailer, though, please. - http://elizs.tumblr.com/post...
let’s be clear, while this movie is about a man, women will be in the movie. They won’t just be ancillary figures, and that is because of Ava. - http://elizs.tumblr.com/post...
