Let’s Overanalyze the ‘True Detective’ Season 2 Trailer!

We finally have our first True Detective trailer that’s not just men (and one woman) giving men (and one woman) meaningful glances over a custom-written Lera Lynn song, and you know what that means: time for an overanalysis! To help pass the time between now and the June 21st premiere date, the Internet is going to wring every last drop of meaning it can out of the one minute of footage HBO and Nic Pizzolatto have bestowed upon us. The following is one woman’s attempt. … Read More

Everything We Know About ‘True Detective’ Season 2 So Far

Here is everything we know about True Detective Season 2 so far. (Don’t worry — we’ll update the post as more information is confirmed.) … Read More

De Palma’s ‘Passion,’ Schrader’s ‘Canyons,’ and the Inertia of Cinematic Idolatry

You’ve got to give it to Brian De Palma: he knows what his audiences expect. His new film Passion (out today in theaters; previously available on demand) features all of the director’s greatest hits: a twisty plot heavy on identity play, a narrative that mostly serves at the pleasure of his baroque set pieces, an obsession with voyeurism (digital, these days), and a boundless appreciation for the pleasures of Sapphic teasing. It’s a De Palma movie through and through; by the time he trots out the split-screen, he’s like Skynyrd finally playing “Freebird” for a crowd that’s been waiting all night for it. It hits all of the beats we expect and will undoubtedly please those who’ve followed his work since the 1970s. But Passion is, outside of those cinephile-pleasing gestures, a pretty bad movie. If it bore any other filmmaker’s name, would we cut it the same slack? It’s a question worth asking — particularly in the shadow of The Canyons, in which De Palma’s contemporary (and onetime collaborator) Paul Schrader finds himself similarly scrounging to recapture his past magic. … Read More
