Beck’s ‘Hyperspace’ is a Dark, Heavenly Pop Fantasy

Beck’s ‘Hyperspace’ is a Dark, Heavenly Pop Fantasy
Somewhere inside every album Beck has made since Mellow Gold — his 1994 surprise attack of slippery irony and hip-hop bravado — is the solo folk-blues singer caught on that year’s One Foot in the Grave, writing about despair with a surrealist edge while turned toward hope. That is the Beck who jumps out here in “Saw Lightning,” in looping spasms of acoustic, skidding Delta slide guitar.

Most of the song’s apocalypse comes in contemporary kicks. Beck sings of great fire and flooding, praying for rescue in a strident android’s

Toy Story 4: This Mad Men Actress Lent Her Voice to Gabby Gabby

  • Popsugar
While most of the toys in the Toy Story universe have been harmless, Toy Story 4 is returning to its Big Baby days with a sinister vintage doll named Gabby Gabby, voiced by none other than Christina Hendricks.

Hendricks began her career as a model for well over a decade. Before her big break, you may have recognized her on shows such as ER, Firefly, and Kevin Hill. But over the years, Hendricks's standout role definitely has been that of Joan Holloway on Mad Men. Her part as the formidable and omniscient '60s office manager on the AMC series garnered her a total of six Emmy nominations during her run between 2007 and 2015. Of course, her momentum on the small screen didn't end with Mad Men. Hendricks also recently appeared as Olivia Rogers on Amazon's The Romanoffs and currently stars as suburban mom-turned-criminal Beth Boland on NBC's Good Girls.

Exclusive: Sharp Objects Author Gillian Flynn Reveals How She First Got Involved With Widows
One of 2018's best (and most underrated) films is Widows, Steve McQueen's brutal, raw all-female heist flick that boasts some of the most talented actors in the game: Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Kaluuya, Brian Tyree Henry, Michelle Rodriguez, and more.

But behind the scenes, McQueen had the help of author Gillian Flynn, whose genius has blessed us with twisted female-led stories like Sharp Objects, Gone Girl, and Dark Places. In the bonus features included in the film's home release, Flynn reveals the serendipitous way she and McQueen teamed up for the film, which she co-wrote.

"Steve McQueen called me, which was a great phone call to get out of the blue," she said of what led her to Widows. "So we've got Steve McQueen? I'm already in. We've got a heist film with four women?

‘Gone’ no more? Gillian Flynn could receive first Oscar bid for co-writing ‘Widows’

‘Gone’ no more? Gillian Flynn could receive first Oscar bid for co-writing ‘Widows’
Three years ago, Gillian Flynn was snubbed in Best Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars for her “Gone Girl” script, adapted from her own novel of the same name. She’s back in the running this year with another adaptation that could land her first Oscar nomination: “Widows.”

Flynn co-wrote the heist thriller with Steve McQueen, who also directed the film. Based on Lynda La Plante’s ’80s TV crime drama series of the same name, the movie follows the titular widows, led by Veronica (Viola Davis), who plot a heist to pay off crime boss Jamal Manning (Brian Tyree Henry) after their criminal husbands are killed on a job. “Widows” is the second feature film Flynn has written following “Gone Girl.”

Though she was omitted at the Oscars, Flynn did receive Golden Globe and Writers Guild of America nominations for her “Gone Girl” screenplay, and even went home with the Critics’ Choice Award.

Steve McQueen’s Widows and Our Enduring Love of Revenge Movies

Robert Blair Nov 14, 2018

Whoever said two wrongs don’t make a right never went to film school...

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

There is beauty in the simplicity of a time-honored concept in film. Longstanding cinematic tropes can act as the perfect conduit for some much-needed escapism from the dizzying nature of our day-to-day lives.

Based on the most conventional premise that he’s approached in his career to date, Steve McQueen’s Widows fulfills this criterion of familiarity via the revenge genre. Familiarity here though, doesn’t equal compromise or artistic complacency. In typically subversive fashion, and in keeping with his courageous filmography, this star-studded thriller builds on Lynda La Plante’s drama series of the same name to chart the plight of four bereaved women who refuse to be persecuted for their husbands’ ill-fated deeds. Injected with healthy doses of social commentary that raise pertinent issues around feminism,

Red-Carpet Voices: Gillian Flynn for HBO’s ‘Sharp Objects’

Chicago – She is the author whose novels are screen friendly. Gillian Flynn has had all three of her books adapted for either television or film, and the latest is a miniseries adaptation of her first novel, which continues on HBO, titled “Sharp Objects.” The series runs eight episodes, and features Amy Adams in the lead role, supported by Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina and Elizabeth Perkins.

Sharp Objects” centers on Camille Preaker (Adams) as a crime reporter in St. Louis, who is assigned to a murder story in her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri. She is a psychological mess, having just been released from a psychiatric hospital for various ills, and still cannot shake her acute alcoholism. The assignment comes with some baggage, as Camille’s small-town socialite mother Adora (Patricia Clarkson) is back in her life. Further complicating matters is Detective Willis (Chris Messina) as a Kansas City law officer

‘Sharp Objects’: Why Amy Adams Seemed Destined for the Role, and the Writing Choice that Freaked Out Jean-Marc Vallée

  • Indiewire
It’s a pretty simple chain of events that led to “Sharp Objects” becoming TV fans’ new obsession, especially those who appreciate a touch of Southern Gothic melancholy. As IndieWire learned from the show’s key figures, it began like many shows do: Someone wrote a book.

Specifically, the first novel written by Gillian Flynn and published in 2006. While the author’s later novels, “Dark Places” and “Gone Girl,” made a relatively quick transition to the big screen, Flynn noted that “Sharp Objects” didn’t have the same luck. “[The adaptation rights] had been picked up and dropped and picked up and dropped as a movie, from way back when it was released in 2006,” she said. “It languished, languished, languished.”

Separately, in a moment that she described as “happenstance,” eventual showrunner Marti Noxon stumbled across a copy of Flynn’s “Gone Girl” at a book fair. “I was never really a mystery fan,
