The statement also revealed that Jane decided to move to the nation's capital for four months to continue the fight.

"Change is coming by design or by disaster," the statement read. "A Green New Deal that transitions off fossil fuels provides the design. They say it's not realistic,

Dolly Parton’s ‘9 to 5’ to Be Dissected in New Documentary

Dolly Parton’s ‘9 to 5’ to Be Dissected in New Documentary
In 1980, Dolly Parton’s big-screen debut in 9 to 5 went on to become the highest-grossing comedy film of the year, also earning Parton an Oscar nomination and a pair of Grammy awards for the now-classic theme song. Co-starring Parton, Lily Tomlin, and Jane Fonda as co-workers who decide to hold their “sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot” of a boss (Dabney Coleman) hostage and transform their oppressive workplace into one of equality, the hilarious, over-the-top hijinks couldn’t disguise the film’s more resonant message, which has only strengthened in the current

Donald Sutherland Reflects on a Life and Career Marked by Cinema
In a loose and free-flowing on-stage interview held at the Lumière Festival this past Sunday, Donald Sutherland reflected on his decade-spanning career with a tone that mixed personal irreverence alongside genuine veneration for the art form that brought him this far.

“I love filmmakers, I really do,” said the Canadian actor, who delighted the local audience by turning down a translator and speaking in fluent French. “They are part of my life, and I named my four sons after directors I worked with.”

The actor named his first son after “Castle of the Living Dead” director Warren Kiefer, his second after “Don’t Look Now” director Nicolas Roeg, and his third in honor of personal friend Frederic Rossif, but ran into a bit of a snag once his fourth son came into the world.

“I wanted to name another son after [“Ordinary People” director] Robert Redford, but when then the

Klute

Klute

Blu ray

Criterion

1971/ 2.39:1/ 114 min.

Starring Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland

Cinematography by Gordon Willis

Directed by Alan J. Pakula

Jane Fonda plays Bree Daniels, the hooker with a heart of glass in 1971’s Klute. The lanky vamp in the shag cut and form-fitting mini-skirt is desired by many but they’ll have to pay a price – that includes John Klute, a small town detective who wants more from Bree than just sex.

Director Alan J. Pakula’s stylish murder mystery connects the dots between depression era potboilers, the doomed romanticism of 40’s noirs and in particular the European crime films that riled up 42nd street audiences in the late 60’s and early 70’s – macabrely glamorous entertainments featuring debonair degenerates like the man Klute is searching for.

Klute has left his tiny hometown of Tuscarora to find Tom Gruneman, a friend and erstwhile “family man” who’s gone missing in New York City.

New on Blu-ray and DVD for July 15, 2019

With her Oscar-winning turn in Klute, Jane Fonda arrived full-fledged as a new kind of movie star. Bringing nervy audacity and counterculture style to the role of Bree Daniels—a call girl and aspiring actor who becomes the focal point of a missing-person investigation when detective John Klute (Donald Sutherland) turns up at her door—Fonda made the film her own, putting an independent woman and escort on-screen with a frankness that had not yet been attempted in Hollywood.
