50 Best Films About Writers, Ranked

Hollywood is famous for its treatment of writers. They are the low man on the totem pole, the person banned from the set, the guy who wrote the Great American novel drinking himself to death in Los Angeles, rewriting dumb scripts. It’s funny, as Hollywood is also obsessed with portraying “writers” on screen. Flavorwire’s definitive, ranked list of the 50 Best Films About Writers of all time features the requisite mix of biopics, book adaptations (what’s up Stephen King and John Irving), foreign films that actually feature female writers, po-mo meta surrealist studies of madness (very frequent), and the works of Woody… Read More

‘A Young Doctor’s Notebook’ Season 2 Unites Harry Potter and Don Draper in a Black-hearted Character Study

A Young Doctor’s Notebook is a show that risks being overwhelmed by its own premise. The SparkNotes version: Harry Potter and Don Draper! Harry Potter and Don Draper, playing the same person! Harry Potter and Don Draper, playing the same person, based — sort of — on Mikhail Bulgakov! The high-profile casting and source material, however, belie the series’ stakes (small) and its scope (smaller). Such cognitive dissonance may make A Young Doctors Notebook a disappointment to some, but when taken on its own terms, the show is a brilliant, black-hearted character study that’s only improved in its second four-episode run, which premieres tonight on Ovation. … Read More

‘What If,’ or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Romantic Comedy

Normally an early press screening is a fine opportunity to assess a movie with an abundance of lead time — a gift, really. But in the case of Michael Dowse’s new romantic comedy What If, the June screening date made the picture the victim of (initially, at least) an unfortunate bit of timing: it was the first romantic comedy your film editor saw after They Came Together, David Wain’s endlessly funny and mercilessly savage send-up of the entire, tired genre. As I watched the film’s insanely attractive, high-chemistry couple Meet Cute and spend the next 90-plus minutes narrowly missing each other, the Wain film rattled around in my head. Can the traditional romantic comedy even work anymore? … Read More

Flavorwire’s Guide to Indie Flicks to See in August

Hello there, moviegoers, and hasn’t this summer been a bit of a slog? The appropriately overcooked and instantly forgettable The Amazing Spider-Man 2 dropped only in May, but it’s seemed like an eternity since we were giggling at Electrified Jamie Foxx™; now it’s August, and the fall — aka “good movie season” — is just around the corner. Though this month offers little to look forward to from the studios (another Step Up, another Expendables, a Twister rip-off, and God help us, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot), here are some four-star indies to get you through to September. … Read More
