For reasons beyond my control, May was a tremendously difficult month and the least active in The Film Experience's long history of daily postings. But it wasn't without highlights. If you've been drifting away, [cue Keira's chokey Atonement voice] "come back..." because June will be hopping.
Ten Highlights from the Month...
Annette Bening as Myra Langtry Still on the Grift
Tilda, Candied still the most peerlessly iconoclastic actress
Thoughts I Had... while staring at Tom Cruise's W Cover
The Exorcist and Nothingness Beau's fascinating guest post
Maleficent Now with more... Mike Leigh?
Tennis in the Movies - a top ten list
Raise the Red Lantern - my favorite installment of this month's "Best Shots"
Smash - that "bombshell" finale
COMING IN JUNE: Witches of Eastwick week for its 25th anniversary, the completion of the 2011 Film Bitch Awards (I know I know), Updated Oscar Predictions (very soon), Gina Gershon, Beasts of the Southern Wild, The next Reader Ranking project, Pixar's Brave, The Parent Trap and Dead Ringers and other twin movies, Prometheus, Snow White and the Hunstman, Ally Sheedy, True Blood Season 5, and the premiere of something I've been cooking up forever called "Actressland".
And finally, I'll take it all off for Male Strippers Magic Mike week (Kidding! This isn't horror month.)
What are your plans for June? Other than visiting The Film Experience thrice a day. That goes without saying, duh.
