‘9to5: The Story of a Revolution’ Review: An Inspiring Chronicle of Women’s Rights Group From ‘American Factory’ Directors

‘9to5: The Story of a Revolution’ Review: An Inspiring Chronicle of Women’s Rights Group From ‘American Factory’ Directors
Midway through Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar’s stirring documentary “9to5: The Story of a Movement,” Jane Fonda briefly appears as the film’s most famous talking head. Remembering the time they were making the hit 1980 comedy “9 to 5” inspired by various stories of workplace sexism collected from the period’s fed-up administrative women, Fonda jokingly retells one particular vivid fantasy a female clerical worker had of killing her male supervisor — apparently, an all-too-common daydream among similarly ill-treated secretaries of the time. It goes something like mincing the boss in a coffee bean grinder and making drip coffee out of him.

As hilariously out-there as this imaginary revenge scenario might sound — so over-the-top that it couldn’t be included in the Hollywood film with the iconic Dolly Parton song — it isn’t hard to empathize with this employee’s long-standing grievance deep down, thanks to all the narrative

The Social Dilemma: Everything You Need to Know About Tristan Harris

The Social Dilemma: Everything You Need to Know About Tristan Harris
Since The Social Dilemma hit Netflix, social media users have been up in arms regarding the tech industry's intrusion on our everyday lives, especially in regard to mental health. The documentary follows Skyler Gisondo and Vincent Kartheiser as they point out the dangerous effects social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter have on the average citizen. Current and former Silicon Valley bigwigs weigh in, including Tristan Harris, who gives one of the scariest revelations to come from the film: "if you're not paying for the product, you are the product."

A former Google design ethicist, Harris attended Stanford, where he studied computer science with a focus on human-computer interaction (Hci). While pursuing his education, he worked at Apple, where he had tremendous success with his invention of the "Spotlight For Help" feature. Commonly known as the magnify glass icon on Apple products, this search bar is still in use today.

“The Social Dilemma” Presents Interesting Questions In A Puzzling Manner

“The Social Dilemma” Presents Interesting Questions In A Puzzling Manner
It’s no secret that social media has left an indelible mark on the world. Whether it’s more of a positive or a negative mark depends on who you are and how you view its impact. The new documentary, The Social Dilemma, certainly is of the opinion that it’s doing major damage to the world, and in particular, to the youth of the world. In fact, it’s probably more of a fact than an opinion. However, while the Netflix release does make this case, it does so in a rather frustrating and puzzling manner that robs it of most of its effectiveness. Now available on the streaming giant, it’s intriguing, but an ultimately disappointing experience. The documentary is an unusual mix of investigative journalism, expose, and also narrative drama. The subject matter is, of course, the reliance on social media that people of all walks of

Mad Men to Stream on Amazon's IMDb TV With Blackface Disclaimer

Mad Men to Stream on Amazon's IMDb TV With Blackface Disclaimer
Mad Men's return to steaming later this month will include a disclaimer about the show's use of blackface.

On Wednesday, July 15, all seven seasons of Mad Men will stream for free, with commercials, on the Amazon-owned IMDb TV.

Variety is reporting that an episode of Mad Men Season 3, titled “My Old Kentucky Home” will have a disclaimer at the top of the episode.

The aim of the message is to offer context to viewers about a scene in which John Slattery’s Roger sings the anti-slavery ballad “My Old Kentucky Home, Good-Night” while wearing blackface.

“This episode contains disturbing images related to race in America. One of the characters is shown in blackface as part of an episode that shows how commonplace racism was in America in 1963," Variety reveals the disclaimer will say.

"In its reliance on historical authenticity, the series producers are committed to exposing the injustices

‘Mad Men’ Sets Streaming Pact With Amazon, Starzplay and AMC

‘The Social Dilemma’: Film Review

‘The Social Dilemma’: Film Review
Many a personal device will be at least temporarily darkened by “The Social Dilemma” — though whether it’s already too late to stem, mid-course, the societal disaster the film charts is just one of many questions it raises. This potent documentary by Jeff Orlowski lends a podium to various experts who are certain the pervasive influence of under-regulated social media is destroying civilization from within. The problem, to paraphrase Mark Twain, is that it’s much easier to manipulate people than to persuade them they’re being manipulated.

It’s a thesis that doesn’t seem so improbable after 93 minutes of this densely packed yet lively and entertaining documentary, whose accessibility is heightened by some narrative play-acting. Easily one of the most talked-about docs at Sundance this year, “The Social Dilemma” is sure to attract significant interest from buyers for various formats around the world.

‘The Social Dilemma’ Review: A Horrifyingly Good Doc About How Social Media Will Kill Us All

‘The Social Dilemma’ Review: A Horrifyingly Good Doc About How Social Media Will Kill Us All
, Jeff Orlowski’s “The Social Dilemma” does for Facebook what his previous documentaries “Chasing Ice” and “Chasing Coral” did for climate change (read: bring compelling new insight to a familiar topic while also scaring the absolute shit out of you). And while the film covers — and somehow manages to contain — a staggering breadth of topics and ramifications, one little sentence is all it takes to lay out the means and ends of the crisis at hand: Russia didn’t hack Facebook, Russia used Facebook.

That may not be a mind-blowing idea for anyone who’s been raised on the internet, but it would be wrong to think that Orlowski’s film is only speaking to the back of the class. While “The Social Dilemma” is relevant to every person on the planet, and should be legible enough to even the most technologically oblivious types, its target demographic is very online

And just like that, Rollins' ordeal is over on Law & Order: Svu? Not quite. After all, this is Law & Order: Svu. Warning, spoilers follow. The Thursday, Jan. 9 episode of Svu, "Must Be Held Accountable," saw Kelli Giddish's character held hostage by Bucci (Nicholas Turturro), a former cop who was desperate for the squad to bring billionaire predator Getz (Vincent Kartheiser) to justice for what he did to his daughter. Rollins made it out of the ordeal relatively unscathed, at least physically, and the squad nailed Getz…who later offed himself in prison. But is he dead? "Personally, I don't believe conspiracy theories that much because I know how hard it is just to...

First Trailer For Hulu's Series Adaptation of The WWII Submarine Thriller Das Boot

In 1981 director Wolfgang Petersen made a great film adaptation of author Lothar-Günther Buchheim‘s World War II submarine thriller novel Das Boot. I loved that film and now Hulu is taking a crack at the source material by adapting it into a series.

Here’s the official description of the series that was shared:

A story of choices and survival, Das Boot explores the emotional torment of life during World War Two, and the brutal reality of living within a senseless war.

During the Autumn of 1942, in occupied France, U-612 is now ready for its maiden voyage, preparing to head into the increasingly brutal warfare with its young crewmen, including the new captain, Klaus Hoffmann. As the 40 young men take on their first mission, they struggle with the cramped and claustrophobic conditions of life underwater. Their personalities are pushed to the limit as tensions rise and loyalties begin to shatter.

Watch Allegiances Bend in Tense Trailer for Hulu’s ‘Das Boot’

A tense World War II drama plays out in Nazi-occupied France and in the belly of a cramped German submarine in the trailer for Hulu’s adaptation of Das Boot. The show premiered on German TV last year and will arrive on Hulu June 17th.

The eight-episode series is based on Lothar-Günther Buchheim’s 1973 book of the same name, while it also incorporates elements from his 1995 sequel Die Festung. Wolfgang Petersen previously adapted Das Boot into a movie in 1981.

The show is set in the port of La Rochelle, France

‘Das Boot’ Trailer: Lizzy Caplan and Vicky Krieps Star in Continuation of WWII Submarine Saga

‘Das Boot’ Trailer: Lizzy Caplan and Vicky Krieps Star in Continuation of WWII Submarine Saga
We now exist in a time further away from Wolfgang Petersen’s “Das Boot” than that film was to the end of the global conflict it depicted.

Almost four decades since the German submarine-centered epic first arrived in theaters, Hulu and Sky are partnering for a summer release of a new eight-part companion piece to the original story. “Das Boot” picks up a year after the 1981 film (based on the Lothar-Günther Buchheim novel of the same name) leaves off. Instead of solely focusing on underwater life aboard a U-boat, this new Hulu series also looks at life on the shore among the growing French resistance.

The trilingual ensemble — including Lizzy Caplan, Vicky Krieps, Vincent Kartheiser, Tom Wlaschiha, James D’Arcy, and Rick Okon — span across countries and international water, through Nazi-controlled France and the launch of the German fleet’s newest ship, U-612.

Proven Innocent Canceled at Fox

Fox is closing the case on Proven Innocent. 

The crime drama has been canceled after one season, less than 24 hours after the conclusion of Proven Innocent Season 1.

The series averaged 2 million viewers and a 0.4 rating in the demo on Fridays this season. 

Among Fox's sixteen scripted series, the show came in dead last, so the odds were always stacked against it making the cut for a sophomore season.

The show starred Rachelle Lefevre (Under the Dome) as Madeline Scott, a defense attorney dedicated to the issue of wrongful convictions.

The key driving force for her in the world of law was that she and her brother were wrongfully found guilty as teenagers for the murder of their friend.

Kelsey Grammer (Frasier), Russell Hornsby (Grimm), Nikki M. James (BrainDead), Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men) and Riley Smith (Frequency) were also part of the show's cast.
