Scarlett Johansson Has a Power Girl Group With a Haim Sister – Listen to Their First Song!
Scarlett Johansson is no stranger to the music scene, but her latest project is something completely different.

The actress has assembled a pop supergroup featuring singer-songwriters Julia Haltigan, Holly Miranda and Kendra Morris, as well as eldest Haim sister Este Haim, who's traded in her trademark bass for a seat behind the drum kit. Johannson cites Grimes, the Bangles and the Go-Go's as influences for the group, currently calling themselves The Singles.

"The idea was to write super-pop dance music written and performed by girls," Johansson told Rolling Stone. "I wanted it to be like those bands: ultra-pop but also a little ironic, a little in on the joke."

Check out the group's fun, electro-pop single "Candy" below.

The Forgotten: John Boorman's "Leo the Last" (1970)

  • MUBI
John Boorman's career is littered with misfires, maybe the price we pay for the huge artistic risks he takes. In between the early triumphs of Point Blank (1967) and Hell in the Pacific (1968) and his masterwork Deliverance (1972) lies Leo the Last, which gets very little love and not even the kind of scornful attention accorded to catastrophes like Zardoz (1974) and Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977).

Maybe this is because bad drama has kitsch value, whereas bad comedy nobody can stand, and Leo the Last appears, at times, to be attempting humor, a surprising choice for Boorman whose very humorlessness can seem a strength in his successful films and a weakness in his failures. There's something heroic about the fact that it apparently never occurred to Boorman that a man having sex wearing full plate armor (Excalibur), Sean Connery in thigh boots, bandoliers and nappy (Zardoz) and Linda Blair doing a musical

Anna Kendrick Praises Ryan Reynolds

The Dark Side of Sanity! kicks off at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Larry Karazsewski introducing "Secret Ceremony," which he calls "nobody's favorite Joseph Losey film," starring Elizabeth Taylor, Robert Mitchum and Mia Farrow. Losey is bettter known for deftly angst-ridden titles like 1951 noir "The Prowler" and 1963's "The Servant."This strange, dreamlike melodrama found little audience reception and is more famous today for the hatchet job Universal did on it to broadcast it on network tv. Elizabeth Taylor, playing a prostitute in the original, became a woman “who tried on wigs for a living”!

Fantastic Fest 2012 Dispatch: House of Psychotic Women

"Crazy people never look their age," says a character in Joseph Losey's Secret Ceremony, which screened at Fantastic Fest as part of the "House of Psychotic Women" retrospective sidebar. The same could be said for the older films playing in the festival, that is, 'Crazy films never look their age.' From Wake in Fright to Miami Connection to The Shining (played forwards and backwards, simultaneously), none of the "crazy" older films looked out of place among the new offerings. Hosted by Kier-La Janisse, author of a beautiful new book of the same name, published by Fab Press, the "House of Psychotic Women" series shone a spotlight on three films featuring strong female protagonists who, in Janisse's words, share a propensity for "a lot of shouting."...

Slackery News Tidbits, August 1

It's been such a busy week for Austin film that we needed a second news roundup. Here are the highlights:

Fantastic Fest announced the first films in its lineup on Monday. The headline news is a red-carpet premiere of Dredd 3D, although no news yet who will be on the red carpet. The film's star, Karl Urban, was at Fantastic Fest in 2010 for the movie Red (my best photo here). Will he return? In addition, 17 other films were announced, including Wrong, the latest film from Rubber director Quentin Dupieux. No Austin or Texas films yet, but I've got my fingers crossed (coughBoneboyscough).The part of the Fantastic Fest announcement that pleased me most is a sidebar series programmed by Kier-La Janisse, one of the original Fantastic Fest programmers before she returned to Canada to program genre fests there. The "House of Psychotic Women" films tie into Janisse's new book of the same name,

The Forgotten: Stain-Resistant

Giuseppe Patroni Griffi deserves attention. His chic revenger's tragedy 'Tis Pity She's a Whore (1971) is one possible way in: you get Charlotte Rampling, an Ennio Morricone score that's just a Jacobean riff on his spaghetti western stylings, lashings of sex and gore, and a design sensibility which pays some kind of lip service to period while being deliriously seventies at all times, so that it would not be too surprising if Oliver Tobias donned a set of sixteenth century tinted shades, or a tie-dyed doublet.

An alternative entry point is Identikit (1974), Aka The Driver's Seat, from the novel of that name by Muriel Spark. It's the tale of a mysterious woman wandering through a nameless city, hoping to rendezvous with "a friend" whom she's apparently never met. In a parallel plot thread, apparently taking place a day or two later, the police are interrogating everyone she's come into contact with.

A life in music: Richard Rodney Bennett

'I didn't ever decide I was going to be a composer. It was like being tall. It's what I was. It's what I did'

Sidney Lumet's 1974 film version of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express was something of a landmark in crime cinema. The star-studded cast (Bacall, Bergman, Connery, Finney, Gielgud, Redgrave . . .) and lavish production values provided both the template for later movie adaptations of Christie's work and paved the way for the successful trend of high-end television crime series. Richard Rodney Bennett, who had been writing for the screen since he was 18, and who was a technically brilliant classical composer with a deep knowledge of 1930s popular music, was an ideal choice to write the score.

"Stephen Sondheim recommended me," recalls Bennett. "And as soon as I saw the rushes I told Sidney that no one in their right mind was going to be scared out their wits by Agatha Christie.
