The rotting torso (its Christian name is “Bicycle Girl”) was a gift from an director Greg Nicotero and his FX team to the man who has dreamt up every possible variation of shambling, groaning, perpetually starving zombies: Robert Kirkman. The 37-year-old Kentucky native, comic-book writer and executive producer of AMC’s hit TV show The Walking Dead has turned the pages of a meager black-and-white comic book into “a zombie movie that never ends” juggernaut. The show not only spawned an L.A.-based spinoff — Fear the Walking Dead — but a hit show in which people discuss episodes immediately after they air (Talking Dead). Every time a major character dies, which is often, Twitter practically bursts into flames. The comic, which recently published its 155th issue, has sold over 50 million copies worldwide and been translated into over 30 languages. Cosplayers dress up as Dead heroes and villains at conventions; one Comic-Con attendee reportedly … [Read more...] about Robert Kirkman: Inside ‘Walking Dead’ Creator’s Twisted Mind, New Show
It’s fair to be skeptical about this explanation. After all, in the grand scheme of things, very few people join a cult; even fewer people (about 16,000) actually took NXIVM classes, and fewer still joined DOS. It seems like a bit of a stretch to say that anyone is vulnerable to joining a cult when so few people actually do. But when you consider all of the women who spend thousands on spin classes or serums or pastel-branded all-female co-working startups, who whittle themselves down to nothing to run a race that has no finish line in sight, who are told to surrender all of their power in order to ostensibly build up their own, then, of course, it makes sense that women would feel empowered by Keith Raniere. When you’re taught for years that pain is love and love is pain and one is the only way to measure the depths of the other, it doesn’t make a difference if the person telling you that is your boyfriend or your spin instructor or an Instagram ad for laxative tea … [Read more...] about How NXIVM Was the Ultimate Wellness Scam

UPDATE: The biggest talking point ahead of and into the early days of the Venice Film Festival, Roman Polanski’s An Officer And A Spy had its official competition world premiere this evening. Inside the Sala Grande, the film was well-received with a five-minute standing ovation. That’s not a Lido record in this year or others (ie, Marriage Story we understand had folks on their feet for seven minutes last night, while in years past rare ovations have gone to 10 minutes+). It is, however, indicative of the division between how certain audiences may accept, or not, a movie whose maker comes with baggage. … [Read more...] about Roman Polanski’s ‘An Officer And A Spy’ Warmly Greeted In Venice World Premiere; Director Has On-Screen Cameo
