Aww, look! Michel Piccoli, playing an old artist in Jacques Rivette’s La Belle Noiseuse, is petting a kitty! That’s so CUTE. Almost as cute as this week’s batch of adorable little links:
- In case you haven’t yet, please read the announcement for Pussy Goes Grrr’s Juxtaposition Blogathon. We’re still eagerly seeking bloggers of all kinds to participate! Feel free to email/comment with questions, too.
- The Guardian‘s Stephen Thrower wrote an astonishingly good article on horror movie music. If you like horror movies, music, life, or fun, you owe it to yourself to read that article.
- Another horror-flavored article from The Guardian: has David Lynch (silently) retired? Dear lord, I hope not.
- Matt Zoller Seitz asks, “Why aren’t these actors famous?” (I could not agree more about Philip Baker Hall.) He also has a list of “ten underrated actresses we’d watch in anything.” Anna Faris FTW!
- Kent Jones’ appreciation of Robert Ryan is an absolutely mesmerizing must-read.
- In honor of Criterion’s forthcoming Blu-Ray/DVD release, Haden Guest writes “The Killing: Kubrick’s Clockwork.”
- If you’re like me, you love robots. Therefore, if you’re like me, you should look at “Where’s WALL-E?“, a panorama of pop culture robots past and present.
- This really is a fantastic, creative wedding invitation. (And the long-distance relationship story is something I sympathize with intensely.)
- Kudos to Nathan Donarum for linking to this list of “Worst Excuses Made for ‘Bad’ Movies.” It is hilarious, and you’ve probably heard most or all of these in the past.
- From Popshifter editor Less Lee Moore, here’s “The Monstrous Feminist,” about female horror fandom and loving movies like Inside and The Descent. (Sound familiar?)
Search term of the week: “pragncy pussy.” That is some inventive misspelling. How girl get pragnt, anyway?
