Henry Lee Lucas confessed to killing hundreds of people in the Eighties — but it’s unclear whether he actually killed all of them. As such, he is single-handedly responsible for hundreds of unsolved murders; he likely confessed to murders he didn’t commit, thus ending investigations into cases that should not yet be closed. Lucas is the subject of Netflix’s newest true crime docuseries The Confession Killer, debuting December 6th. The five-part series was directed by Oscar nominee Robert Kenner (Food Inc.) and Taki Oldham. Lucas was sent to prison in 1983 for beating his mother to death, after which he claimed to have killed 600 people around the country. He died in prison at age 64; according to the New York Times, he was the only death row inmate spared a the death penalty by George W. Bush when he was governor of Texas. The docuseries trailer shows Lucas reveling in the attention law enforcement gave him due to these possibly false confessions, showering him … [Read more...] about Henry Lee Lucas Confessed to 600 Murders, But Was He Telling the Truth?
The best advice about seeing The Inheritance on Broadway — which you definitely should if you’re looking for a head-spinning, heart-rending theatrical experience — is to forget the hype surrounding it. And that won’t be easy. Playwright Matthew Lopez, a Puerto Rican transplanted to New York City from the Florida panhandle, is fresh from London where his ardently ambitious play about different generations of gay men living in post-AIDs Manhattan won an armful of Oliviers (the Brit Tonys named after the late, great Lord Larry) and gushy reviews that called it “the most important American play of the century.” Try living up to that. You can’t, but it’s impossible not to marvel at the incisively hilarious and deeply humane effort put forth by Lopez, director Stephen Daldry (The Crown, Billy Elliot), and a cast that could not be better. The Inheritance is an emotional powerhouse. It’s also approximately seven hours long. That means you … [Read more...] about ‘The Inheritance’ Is a Ravishing Theatrical Work That Urges Generations to Connect and Love

The Wolf of Wall Street and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actress Margot Robbie has been gathering up some Oscar-talk for her upcoming role in director Jay Roach's Fox News flick Bombshell co-starring Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly and Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson. Evidently, Robbie is so good in the film that there is already talk of her snagging her second Oscar nomination following the one she received for director Craig Gillespie's biography-comedy I, Tonya. But that's not what we're here to talk about today. Today we want to pass along some comments Robbie made regarding writer-director James Gunn's upcoming The Suicide Squad featuring Robbie's return as Harley Quinn. Margot Robbie is currently in Atlanta shooting The Suicide Squad, and during a recent interview, someone mentioned her Suicide Squad co-star Joel Kinnaman's recent comments about how funny he thinks Gunn's new movie is going to be.

“The Eighties were good to me,” says Jennifer Grey, and considering she’s best known for having the time of her life with Patrick Swayze in 1987’s Dirty Dancing, that would make sense. “You know those people who rock that hairdo from the moment they got laid the most in their life? The Eighties are a bit like that for me.” Grey, who also appeared in Red Dawn and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, isn’t quite ready to leave the age of Rubik’s cubes and Max Headroom behind — she currently appears as the mother of a country-club employee in Red Oaks, a new Amazon comedy series that’s set in 1985. The actress looks relaxed sitting comfortably in a fetal position on a couch in a Manhattan hotel room next to her Red Oaks costar Paul Reiser, who had his own Eighties successes with Diner, Beverly Hills Cop and Aliens. She gets so excited about discussing the decade that made her that she stands up and lifts her blouse just enough to show … [Read more...] about Inside ‘Red Oaks’: An Eighties TV Show That’s Not Ironic
