Bruising styles, yodelled anthems and fan fever: Euro 2020 feels like the real thing | Barney Ronay...
3 hours ago
The tournament’s opening week has calmed fears of fatigued football and showcased engaged, hungry and energised playersThere was a moment in Rome on Wednesday night that seemed to capture the unusually fevered pitch of Euro 2020’s opening week. As the TV camera crawled along the faces of the Italian players before kick-off against Switzerland, the feed lingered, sensually, on the magnificent spectacle of full-bore, mid-anthem Giorgio Chiellini.Chiellini is both a very bad and a very loud singer. But his performances of Il Canto degli Italiani are still the stuff of legend: eagerly awaited and jealously ranked and pored over by Chiellini ultras, Chiellini stans. Continue reading.........
Bill Maher Pokes Fun at Joe Manchin: He’s a ‘Democrat Except on Matters of Policy’ (Video)...
5 hours ago
Bill Maher had a little fun – OK, a lot of fun – Friday night at the expense of Sen. Joe Manchin, the conservative Democrat from West Virginia, who is irking his colleagues on the left by opposing the party’s sweeping election bill. Although Maher was sympathetic to the senator because he’s “in a state that is the Trumpiest state in the nation” — 69% of voters in West Virginia went for Donald Trump – the “Real Time” host thought there was no time like the present for a “24 Things You Didn’t Know About Joe Manchin” segment. Reading a list as if Manchin was reading it, Maher began. “I’m a Democrat except on matters of policy.” HBO “When liberals call me a c—sucker I say, ‘It’s pronounced Koch.'” HBO “To avoid being branded an elitist, I black out two of my teeth.” HBO “I always root for the overdog.” HBO “Lindsey Graham once accused me of being a closeted Republican.” HBO “I once actually peed on a parade.” HBO “Before stopping a coyote from attacking a child, I like to hear the coyote out.” HBO And lastly… “I wish people would stop saying I really want to be a Republican. I don’t. But I wouldn’t mind being invited to one of Matt Gaetz’s parties.” HBO You can watch the entire segment above, which also includes Maher and the panelists agreeing that the Democratic party needs more lawmakers like Manchin. No, really.......

Bill Maher had some advice for Lin-Manuel Miranda on Friday. “Stop the apologizing,” said Maher about Miranda’s reaction to criticism that his new film, In the Heights, does not depict more darkly-colored Puerto Ricans onscreen. “You’re the guy who made the founding fathers Black and Hispanic! I don’t think you have to apologize to Twitter.” […]......
From ‘Ratched’ to ‘Halston’: One Editor’s Literal Double Take...
9 hours ago
The practice of creating origin stories for well-known characters that are not the leading role in a narrative is reaching a fever pitch these days, but “Ratched” — Netflix’s 2020 series starring Sarah Paulson (above) as the younger, more stylish version of “One Flew the Cuckoo’s Nest” harridan nurse – might have kickstarted the craze given how much you could wring from such a scrupulous character. “My biggest challenge was we had so much rich material”, said series editor Shelly Westerman, who was responsible for five episodes of the first season (a second one is in the works), “jaw- dropping dailies that you would call out your co-workers screaming ‘you’ve gotta see this’ — the acting, hair, makeup, costumes, cinematography, everything was just amazing. The hardest part was cutting it, especially since we had a nearly 90-minute pilot, I just loved it.” Netflix And if that wasn’t enough of a challenge, Westerman also leaped into Daniel Minahan’s Netflix miniseries “Halston” right after (sharing duties with editor Shelby Siegel and serving as a producer as well), chronicling the rise and fall of the legendary designer, played by Ewan McGregor (above). “It was one of the first shows of Ryan Murphy’s not to be set in Los Angeles, so Shelby and I went to New York and really dove into archival footage, and it worked great because she’s the really story-driven one, and I’m the emotional one, so it was a great match of rhythms.” Westerman came up in the world of celluloid, working on acclaimed projects by directors such as Todd Haynes, Alison Maclean and James L. Brooks. “Television is a very different workflow. And I missed having that really tight relationship with those directors every day in a room, like with James L. Brooks. You really start to fuse with them.” But fortunately, she later met Brad Simpson, one of the producers of “American Crime Story,” and has been in the Ryan Murphy universe ever since, cutting projects such as “Pose” and “The Politician” before her current gigs. “Ryan is one of the people most responsible for getting women in these posts, when I started TV, it was mostly all guys. I’d say within a year of me joining [the Murphy projects], it became more 50/50”, Westerman said, who credits the late Richard Marks and Geraldine Peroni, the longtime editors for Brooks and Robert Altman respectively, as major influences on her career. The two projects are both period pieces, and even share director Minahan, but are visually very different and of varying lengths — “Halston” has fairly set 45-minute running times, whereas “Ratched” varies every episode. “Those [run times] were not intentional in any way, it’s funny because I don’t think we had much left on the cutting floor for ‘Halston,’ but ‘Ratched; had so much story and so many characters, so for that, it was very important that we had a really taut pilot to keep people coming back.” The editing bays (especially women who work within them) have been the longtime champions for serving the narratives of auteur filmmakers, but what would be the most surprising thing to learn about what the job truly entails? “I was just talking about this with someone because a lot of people, in my family even, think a project just comes out looking like that. But the truth is, I’m making decisions about closed shots and wide shots and performance, it’s all very subjective. We’re temping music and creating soundscapes and working with composers. When we stand back and look at the finished product, we’re like, we did that!” “Ratched” and “Halston” are both available to stream on Netflix......
‘Pride’ and Joy: How the FX Docuseries Examines LGBTQ+ Life Through the Decades...
10 hours ago
There have been many documentaries about the gay liberation movement, equal rights and same-sex liberties for the queer community and the underrepresented and often obscured plight of transgender individuals, many of them tied to the decades-long AIDS crisis. But there has never been a doc that encapsulates all of them at once that also manages to be uplifting and non-foreboding as well — until “Pride.” FX’s six-episode nonfiction series “Pride” covers these issues and much more. Beginning with the 1950s through current day, it often eschews a standard talking-heads approach (all well worth hearing) to narrow down its narrative, sometimes even framing people in side-view versus head-on, to create an extra sense of vulnerability. “Everybody had the desire and the goal to give voice to people who hadn’t normally been spotlighted in these films,” says editor Rosella Tursi, who worked on the back three episodes, which cover the ’80s to 2020s. “The ’80s episode, for example, easily could have been dominated by gay men because of the rise of the AIDS epidemic. But instead, we had some phenomenal character arcs. There are even two women spotlighted in that episode because it really tells the story of different activists.” That particular episode was Tursi’s first foray into working on the series. Subjects featured include Village Voice writer Michael Musto, a pre-“Drag Race” RuPaul, and videographer/activist Nelson Sullivan, who chronicled his day-to-day sojourns as a bittersweet ode to the ever-changing Big Apple and who is often dubbed the inventor of the modern selfie via his technique of frequently reversing the camera onto himself. “For the ’80s episode alone, we had a tremendous amount of footage. Nelson shot over 1,200 hours of footage from 1983 to 1989, so, for the whole series, it’s thousands of hours we went through.” And even while working diligently on what Tursi calls his dream job, it takes a certain mental toll. “It comes with the territory of being a storyteller, but yeah, there were many times that I got emotional and cried [at work],” he says. “People like [Black trans activist] Ceyenne Doroshow, who appeared three times in the series and kind of became the heartbeat of it, to go from surviving the streets of NYC to becoming an executive director of an organization that helps so many people. It was incredibly fulfilling — and even educational for me even having known much of it — being immersed in all of this material going back decades.” Tursi was thrilled to work on a project shepherded by legendary indie producer of “Poison” and “Go Fish,” Christine Vachon, known for lifting the voices of LGBTQ+ filmmakers in their salad days. “She is an idol of mine because of her work in new queer cinema and her book ‘Shooting to Kill’ — I love the 1980s. And then I met [‘80s segment] directors Alex Smith and Anthony Caronna at a restaurant and it ended up being the longest, most fun job interview I ever had. And one thing led to another, and I just kept working on it.” Not only prescient as time capsule, “Pride” rides the edge of modern-day movements as well. Subjects such as Margaret Cho expound on how gay culture has radically shifted in the new millennium, giving way to newer, necessary groups such as Black Trans Lives Matter, seen in footage in the documentary shot as recently as last summer in Brooklyn. “It’s the reason we chose to end the entire series giving voice to the Black trans community,” Tursi says. She notes the important presence of trans and non-binary directors such as Yance Ford and Ro Haber — who worked on the series — “because that’s where the movement needs to focus this energy now. It was like-minded people working together with the same goal of really giving voice to people who hadn’t previously had a big platform.” And “Pride,” as is the case with many of its viewers, literally hits home in more ways than one. “My wife and I were kept apart by the Defense of Marriage Act for many years. To be looking through all this material and all these archives in our apartment together now that we are married, it made us just feel so much gratitude for the people that came before us that fought these very hard battles that got us to where we are now. It’s made me so much more active and engaged.”......
35 of TV’s Best Father Figures Who Weren’t Actually Dads, From Mr. Belvedere to Joey Gladstone (Photos)...
11 hours ago
In honor of Father’s Day, TheWrap recognizes non-parental TV father figures, from Mr. Feeney on “Boy Meets World” to Mr. Carson on “Downton Abbey” to the eponymous Mr. Belvedere and Chief Hopper on “Stranger Things.” A few examples for starters: Mr. Feeny (William Daniels) , “Boy Meets World” The Matthews’ next-door neighbor was also Cory’s (Ben Savage) teacher and eventually his principal, offering sagely advice throughout his young life. He’ll probably still be at it in the sequel series, “Girl Meets World.” Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier), “Full House” Uncle Joey had his puppets and his nieces, but no kids. Still, he played an essential role in helping raise Danny’s (Bob Saget) girls. Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) would have made this list, but he eventually had twins of his own. Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Coulson hand-selected his own team, and he filled it with broken people in need of support, direction and guidance. It’s no wonder he’s stepped up as a father figure to so many of them, and especially the orphaned Skye (Chloe Bennet). Mr. Dink (Fred Newman), “Doug” Doug’s (Billy West/Tom McHugh) older, eccentric neighbor was as quick with a bizarre high-tech gadget as he was with words of wisdom for the young man. Unfortunately, sometimes both proved to be of little use. Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), “The Flash” When Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) mother was murdered and his father wrongfully convicted of her murder, he was taken in by family friend, police detective Joe West. Joe proved a devoted foster father, even inspiring young Barry to become a forensic scientist. And after the accident that gave Barry his powers, Joe was his first friend to learn about the secret, and serves as one of The Flash’s staunchest allies. And now that Barry is married to Joe’s daughter, Iris, he’s a great father-in-law in addition to being a great foster dad. Click through our gallery for all 35.......
25 Worst Dads in Film and TV, From Homer Simpson to Darth Vader (Photos)...
12 hours ago
Worst dads on tv and film Homer Simpson, “The Simpsons” Homer Simpson is TV’s most famous dad but not exactly a role model. He may be good at heart but some of his favorite past times include drinking, laying on the couch, and strangling his son Bart whenever he gets out of line. Daniel Plaineview, “There Will Be Blood” Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis) says it straight out, “he’s an oilman”; he puts family second behind his own greed. That becomes abundantly clear as his relationship deteriorates with his adopted son throughout the movie. Al Bundy, “Married With Children” Ed O’Neill was a very different kind of family man on “Married With Children” than he is now on “Modern Family.” Al’s cynical outlook on life has a hard time not having an effect on his kids. Frank Gallagher, “Shameless” Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy) is a drunk, he scams the government, cares very little for his personal hygiene, and is the father of six kids, who he only makes life more difficult for. Highlights of Frank’s escapades include convincing one of his son’s he has cancer so he can try to make a quick buck out of the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Dwight Hansen, “This Boy’s Life” Based on the true story of Tobias Wolff, Robert De Niro plays the step-father to a young Tobias (Leonardo DiCaprio) and verbally, emotionally and physically abuses him. Arlo Givens, “Justified” A career criminal, Arlo Givens (Raymond J. Barry) is pretty much the exact opposite of his son Raylan (Timothy Olyphant), constantly meddling in Raylan’s investigations to help out his old crime buddies. Red Forman, “That ’70s Show” Being a strict father is one thing, but Red Forman (Kurtwood Smith) takes it to a whole other level with his son Eric, or as he prefers to call him “dumbass.” Bernard Berkman, “The Squid and the Whale” A recently divorced literary professor, Bernard Berkman (Jeff Daniels), continually tries to force his own elite sensibilities to his young sons despite what they may actually want or be interested in. George Bluth Sr., “Arrested Development” At the head of TV’s most dysfunctional family is George Bluth Sr. (Jeffrey Tambor). The self-absorbed, sleazy, business man’s most lasting gift to his children, his failed invention “The Cornballer,” which isn’t good for anything expect giving the kids burns. Randy Robinson, “The Wrestler” After suffering a heart attack that forces him to retire from wrestling, Randy “the Ram” Robinson tries to reconnect with his estrange daughter. Randy can’t help but to slip into his usual patterns, though, and neglect his daughter. Jack Torrance, “The Shining” All work and no play made Jack much worse than a dull boy. Jack goes on a murderous rampage after his wife and young son while care-taking for an off season hotel. Not exactly an ideal family vacation. Frank Reynolds, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” After years away from his kids, Frank (Danny DeVito) is much more interested in being a member of their group of friends than offering any parental advice. Mr. Wormwood, “Matilda” Danny DeVito has another character worthy of this list. Always looking for the next scheme rather than paying attention to his daughter, it’s hard to argue when Matilda super glues her father’s hat to his head. Tywin Lannister, “Game of Thrones” For a man who says that he does everything for the betterment of his family, he sure is awful to his kids. If you want a pat on the back don’t go running to Tywin, he’s more likely to belittle you. Michael Corleone, “The Godfather” Another father who only wanted to help his family is Michael Corleone. His actions came back to haunt him though when “the family business” results in his daughter’s death. Royal Tenenbaum, “The Royal Tenenbaums” Having not seen any of his family since he and his wife divorced, Royal Tenenbaum pushes and shoves his way back into their lives just for a place to live. Gene Hackman won a Golden Globe for his performance as the insensitive patriarch of the Tenenbaum family. Don Draper, “Mad Men” Draper (or Dick Whitman, technically) has kids — he just rarely sees them. He is such a absent dad that this season, Sally and Bobby were home alone in his apartment while it was robbed. Child support aside, Draper is not what you would call a “family man.” George Jung, “Blow” “Boston George” had a baby girl and got sober cold turkey. If you saw the mountains of cocaine that Jung vacuumed through his nose, you know how dramatic a step that truly was. His daughter became his “heart,” and he couldn’t live without her. But Jung ends up breaking a huge promise to Kristina when he gets busted one last time. Darth Vader, “Star Wars” In one of the greatest twists in film history, Darth Vader revealed himself to be Luke Skywalker’s father. His first act of fatherly love: cutting his son’s hand off. Ted Mosby, “How I Met Your Mother” He has been telling his kids the same story for eight years now, going on nine. And you thought your Dad told boring stories. Hiram Lodge, “Riverdale” On The CW’s less-than-wholesome adaptation of the classic Archie Comics, Veronica’s father is a suave drug kingpin responsible for Riverdale’s fizzle rock epidemic who also framed her boyfriend for murder and, at one point, challenged him to a bare-knuckle boxing match for reasons still unclear.......
