This week’s kitty is from The Sessions, a movie that doesn’t take many creative chances but is unusual by virtue of being about disability and sex. And now, a whole bunch of links:
- A selection of YA novels with prominent disabled characters.
- Jessica Ritchey on “less is more” and “more is more” musical sequences.
- “Who pays writers?”
- “ ‘Dangerous’ Cinematic Women Studies” and “Society for Cinema and Media Studies 2013 Conference Papers.”
- Peter Labuza writes “Hill and Hopper: A Study in Stoicism.”
- Peter also wrote about Room 237, as did Jonathan Rosenbaum, Girish Shambu, and B. Kite.
- “Why do you think female film critics and commentators are important to the industry?”
- A 1988 Los Angeles Times Magazine piece called “L.A. 2013.”
- “Bodies Politic/Body Politics: The Political and the Personal in Contemporary Film Essays.”
- The Exiled Elite: “pencil drawn alternative movie posters of cult and classic films.”
- Matt Cornell’s “The Torturer as Feminist: From Abu Ghraib to Zero Dark Thirty.”
- Kevin B. Lee on Hong Sang-soo’s The Day He Arrives.
And here are our recent search terms, which read like a window into some sad Google user’s erotic nightmares: “fat firl uteras pics,” “www.real-virgil-pussy-ukraine.com,” “she bends on her four ready for deflowring her stories.”
