SERIES PREMIERE: Naomi Watts, who’s also seen currently on Showtime’s Twin Peaks: The Return, stars in Netflix’s latest series, playing a therapist who gets very invested in the lives of her patients – too involved. As Season 1, which drops today on Netflix, opens, for example, her Jean Holloway becomes so fascinated by a patient’s description of his former lover, a woman with such sexual magnetism and freewheeling energy that he can’t forget her, that Jean be

SEASON PREMIERE: For Season 3 of this “bounty hunters in space” Syfy series, Killjoys is doubling down on the mystery it introduced at the end of last season: That Dutch, the bounty hunter played by Hannah John-Kamen, became aware of an evil lookalike, an alien ruler named Aneela (pictured). She, or they, join a long list of TV doubles, doppelgangers, and clones, which I happen to discuss in my latest column for TV Guide Magazine. That’s not me being cross-promotional. It&rsquo

Diane Lane, as an actress, has enchanted me for decades – and that enchantment begin with this 1979 movie, which was her cinematic debut. It was a starring role, too, in which she, as a young teenager, played a young teenager – an American girl who attends school in Paris, meets a young French boy (Thelonious Bernard, in what was his screen debut as well), and falls in love, with encouragement from an elderly French grifter, played by Laurence Olivier. A Little Romance is directed, w

Would that there were an easy or obvious description of this short that has been making the rounds since last week. A visit to filmmaker David Lewandowski's website leaves it simply at: “Time for Sushi is the latest in a series of short films inspired by an obsessive passion for nonsense..."

Mike Nichols made his cinematic directorial debut with this sizzling 1966 drama, a year before injecting movie history with a strong dose of youth serum by releasing The Graduate. This tense, raw argumentative character study – based on the play by Edward Albee, written and staged only four years earlier – stars Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, George Segal, and Sandy Dennis, who play two couples mired in the political, competitive and stiflingly insular world of academia. It’

This 1990 movie, directed by Stephen Frears with an obvious (and successful) goal of producing a modern, sexy, creepy exemplification of film noir, is driven by a trio of superlative performances. John Cusack plays a con man torn between two con women, played by Annette Bening and Anjelica Huston. One portrays his girlfriend, the other his mother – and both, like Cusack, are unforgettable.
