13 Great Anti-Valentine’s Day Movies You Can Stream Right Now

If you’re dating or married, Valentine’s Day can be a high-stress holiday: figuring out what to get your partner, how much is trying too hard, how much isn’t trying enough, where to go, what to do, what not to do, and whether this really is the right night to bring up that previously unmentioned lovechild.

Internet Debate Is Never Going to Solve the Case of Woody Allen

It has been about two decades since the collective conversation about Woody Allen shifted from critiques of his creative output to arguments about his personal life. This was partially due to his relationship with and eventual marriage to Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of his then-longtime girlfriend, Mia Farrow, with whom Allen became intimate while still dating Farrow. The other, more sinister side of the tale is the allegation that he sexually assaulted Dylan, the daughter he adopted with Farrow. Allen’s relationship with Previn had, until last year’s Vanity Fair profile of Farrow brought those allegations back into the public consciousness, long been the major blight on his reputation. But in the months since that piece’s publication, the internet has become the site of another public trial, in which Allen has often been judged guilty of the sexual assault charges by a jury of cultural critics and online commenters. … Read More

With Woody Allen’s new movie Blue Jasmine hitting screens this weekend, several outlets have taken the opportunity to rank Allen’s extensive filmography.

Why Can’t Hollywood Get ‘The Great Gatsby’ Right?

Hollywood took its first stab at adapting The Great Gatsby for the screen only a year after its publication, and has been trying intermittently ever since — and, for the most part, failing. What is it about F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic that makes it so impossible, so utterly untraslatable? It’s certainly not that the film industry hasn’t been trying hard enough: Baz Luhrmann’s new film is the fifth official adaptation. In the course of a week, I watched all of them that can be seen (and another, looser adaptation besides), and came up with a few theories. … Read More
