‘Queer Eye’ Stars Announce Season 3 Premiere Date On Netflix

The five stars of “Queer Eye” are kicking off their much-anticipated third season with a little help from Carly Rae Jepsen.  On Wednesday, Netflix dropped a new teaser for their popular makeover series that features a snippet of Jepsen’s new single, “Now That I Found You.”  Season Three, which will begin streaming on Netflix March 15, sees the “Queer Eye” guys ― Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Antoni Porowski and Jonathan Van Ness ― making their way to Kansas City, Missouri.  “Queer Eye” creator David Collins told The Hollywood Reporter last year that his Midwestern background made him feel personally committed to bringing the show to Kansas City.  “I’m a Midwestern kid. I was born and raised in Cincinnati,” he said. “Honestly, I think [this region] was the next step. We looked at al...

Hasan Minhaj Jabs Saudi Arabia For Netflix Censorship

Comedian Hasan Minhaj opened the season premiere of his Netflix show “Patriot Act” by directly addressing how the streaming service gave into demands from Saudi Arabia’s government last month to remove an episode critical of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. “This is ‘Patriot Act’ — or as it’s known in Saudi Arabia, ‘Error 404, not found,’” Minhaj said at the start of the first episode of the show’s second season, which premiered Sunday.  “I still can’t believe it. We got Saudi Arabia to issue its very own Muslim ban,” he joked later, before recapping “how I became an Internet bad boy.” Minhaj confirmed reports that the Saudi government requested that Netflix take down an episode from October, in which Minhaj criticized bin Salman for reported involvement in the slaying of Washington Post ...

Why The Satirical Slasher ‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ Has The Art World Screaming

The contemporary art world is a cutthroat place in “Velvet Buzzsaw,” the satire-horror mashup that premiered last week on Netflix. It’s also a cut-arm and a cut-neck place, if you’re being picky.  Written and directed by Dan Gilroy, “Buzzsaw” follows an interconnected circle of art world insiders peddling six-figure “perceptions” by any means necessary. “None of this is new,” says Rhodora Haze (Rene Russo), an anarchist/blue chip gallery owner with a perfectly cynical outlook on her profession. “It’s all been done since someone charged a bone to see the first cave painting.” None of this (poking fun at the art world’s vacuousness and greed) is new either, until the plot of “Velvet Buzzsaw” takes a bloody turn. Josephina (Zawe Ashton), one of Rhodora’s associates, is the first to discover h...

Yalitza Aparicio Of ‘Roma’ Speaks Out On Barriers Facing Indigenous Women

Yalitza Aparicio, the breakout star of Alfonso Cuarón’s critically acclaimed film “Roma,” made history as the first indigenous woman to get an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. Now she’s using her win to speak out on barriers indigenous women face in cinema and society at large. “I know that everything that I am doing — if I do something wrong, they might think we are all that way. So I have to take good care of that image, our image,” the actress told the Los Angeles Times in an interview. Aparicio ― a 26-year-old born in Oaxaca, Mexico, of indigenous Mixtec and Triqui descent ― was a newcomer to acting when she was selected to play the lead role of Cleo in Cuarón’s film. The semi-autobiographical black-and-white movie tells the story of a domestic worker and the family she works for in ...

We’re Trapped Inside Netflix’s ‘Russian Doll’ — And It’s Great In Here

Nadia Vulvokov is gazing at her reflection in the bathroom mirror. It’s her 36th birthday party, and the celebration is bittersweet, in part because her mother never made it to that age. Unfortunately for Nadia, she hardly gets to experience it either. Later that night while roaming the streets for her cat Oatmeal, she’s hit by a car and dies.

Inside ‘Velvet Buzzsaw,’ The Most Bonkers Netflix Movie You’ll See This Year

It was the correction heard ’round the world. Huddled in a studio in the heart of Park City, Utah, the cast of “Velvet Buzzsaw” was perched atop a set of chairs and a couch, working their way through an obligatory press day at the Sundance Film Festival. Tasked with spending hours expounding upon his latest movie, director Dan Gilroy began unleashing a deluge of adjectives to describe his wife and star, Rene Russo. “She’s soulful, spiritual,” he said, “a touch of melancholy once in a while.” That’s when the world stopped. Gilroy pronounced “melancholy” as if it rhymed with “kaplonk-ly”: “me-LAHNK-ly.” Jake Gyllenhaal, who looked as though he’d been bracing himself for the flub, gently interjected. “It’s melancholy, Dan,” Gyllenhaal said, adding, “That is not the first time that’s happened ...

Priyanka Chopra To Star In Film Based On Netflix’s ‘Wild Wild Country’

Priyanka Chopra made a wild announcement on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Wednesday. The “Quantico” actress said she is developing a film adaptation of the 2018 Netflix documentary “Wild Wild Country,” about the Rajneesh cult, which built a commune in rural Oregon in the 1980s. The Emmy-winning six-part series details the conflict between the nirvana-seeking cult and the conservative small town it neighbored, which was spurred viciously by Ma Anand Sheela, a charismatic, highly influential, foul-mouthed and polarizing assistant of the cult’s leader, the Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (also known as Osho). Chopra, 36, revealed that she will star in and produce the adaptation and is partnering with director Barry Levinson (“Rain Man,” “Wag the Dog”) for the project. “We’re developing it as ...

How Do You Choreograph A Teen Sex Scene On TV? Start With Animal Mating Rituals.

In an unmistakably teenage bedroom, complete with red mood lighting and a glittery lava lamp, a high schooler named Tanya is furiously humping her girlfriend Ruthie. “How’s that? Is that good for you?” Tanya (played by actress Alice Hewkin) asks. “Not really, you’re dry-humping my leg,” a stoic Ruthie (Lily Newmark) responds. They switch positions.  “What about this?” Tanya asks in a bucking spread eagle, peering up with wide eyes and high hopes. Ruthie, on top now, looks dead inside. “Ow, leg cramp,” she moans, pushing Tanya away and dismounting.  The opening scene of “Sex Education” Episode 4, like so many scenes in Netflix’s new show about unfiltered teenage horniness, is equal parts raunchy, cloddish and sexy; a feat of NSFW choreography when you think about it. The feverish grinding a...

Netflix Wants You To Thirst For Just About Anyone But Ted Bundy

Ted Bundy was a convicted serial killer and rapist responsible for the deaths of at least 30 women. Yet on Monday, Netflix actually had to ask the public to stop fawning over him. The streaming service, which just released its docuseries, “Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes,” posted a tweet for viewers fawning over Bundy: I’ve seen a lot of talk about Ted Bundy’s alleged hotness and would like to gently remind everyone that there are literally THOUSANDS of hot men on the service — almost all of whom are not convicted serial murderers — Netflix US (@netflix) January 28, 2019 Netflix even clapped back at one Twitter user who tried to justify the attention on him: where — Netflix US (@netflix) January 28, 2019 That user then fired back a quick response, likely saving some ...

Ignore The Online Backlash Cycle: Marie Kondo’s Netflix Show Is Good

Marie Kondo is back, baby, and this time she’s coming for all your books Netflix’s voracious audience. It seems a lifetime ago (about five years) that Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, hit American bookstores and drove hordes of untidy North Americans to cradle their old gym shoes and ask, “Does this spark joy?” Her KonMari system teaches readers to declutter by sorting through all their possessions in a specific order: clothes, books, papers, “komono” (miscellaneous) and sentimental items. Kondo’s eight-episode Netflix series, “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo,” takes the diminutive organizer into L.A. households, where she guides them through this journey.  In its day, Kondo’s book set off a minimalist craze, then a backlash and then a backlash to the backlash. The show pro...
