Self-Styled Siren: Let's Talk About Kim Novak
"So let’s say — just as a hypothetical for-instance — you are an
81-year-old star whose last movie was in 1991 and who hasn’t been to the
Oscars in many a long year. Not that you were ever nominated for one in
the first place; you were, after all, a sex symbol for most of your
career. As the evening approaches, the anxiety sets in. Harsh lights,
you think. High-definition cameras. And a public that remembers you
chiefly as the ice goddess whose beauty once drove James Stewart to the
brink of madness.
And even back then, when you were 25 years old, you worried constantly that no matter how you looked, it wasn’t good enough.
So a few weeks before the ceremony, you go to a doctor, and he says,
“Relax honey. I have just the thing to make you fresh and dewy for the
And you go to the Oscars, so nervous you clutch your fellow presenter’s
hand. And the next day, you wake up to a bunch of cheap goddamn shots
about your face. "
Anthony Garotinho e a tentativa de sabotar a pacificação nos morros -
HUDSON CORRÊA E RAPHAEL GOMIDE, COM ANA LUIZA CARDOSO
"As autoridades já esperavam essas dificuldades. A surpresa são os novos
inimigos: os sabotadores da pacificação. O objetivo desse grupo também é
territorial, mas no campo político. Suas armas são as ameaças, a
perseguição, a produção de dossiês e uma série de outros artifícios para
instalar o medo na população e desacreditar a segurança pública. Esses
agentes do subterrâneo têm endereço conhecido e comando estabelecido.
Eles operam num bunker na Rua Senador Dantas, no centro do Rio de
Janeiro. Na liderança do grupo, estão o ex-governador Anthony Garotinho e o ex-chefe da Polícia Civil Álvaro Lins. "
Via Iris: INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS (Joel & Etan Coen, EUA, 2013)
Llewyn Davis é insuportável, chato, folgado, encostado, metido, um folk singer sem talento que tenta acontecer. E se voce espectador não for um curtidor dos Irmãos Coen, afinado com seu estilo insólito, achará este filme também chato, sem perceber que, de certa forma, é muito engraçado. E uma tiração de sarro com todo a cena folkie do Village início dos anos 60 (Dylan taí nesse meio).
Dizem que é melancólico. Sim, tadinho do Llewyn, tudo lhe dá errado, embora nem dê para ter pena dela. Mas eu ri bastante.
We decided to pay tribute to those wonderful covers and guess at the

Sky Ferreira’s Facebook Message Highlights the Fine Line Between Internet Misogyny and Sexual Harassment
Part of calling the web your home turf is, of course, dealing with the haters. We all know the rules: don’t read the comments, don’t feed the trolls, etc. etc. But online hatred can and often does go too far, particularly when the comments cross over into harassment. Ferreira took to Facebook yesterday to discuss both her own experience of this, and the blanket misogyny of the web.
"Na falta de um sentinela para nos alertar que os bárbaros estão tomando conta, resta confiar no nosso instinto. Quando chegará o momento que nos convencerá que isto aqui não tem jeito mesmo, e a procurar uma saída? Será que o momento já veio e já foi e nós não notamos? E sair pra onde? Pra dentro, para a alienação e a burrice induzida, ou para fora, com o euro caro desse jeito?"
Shepherd of the City’s Rebirth, Rio’s Mayor Feels the Strains, Too
Mr. Paes has a point. Political leaders across the country may have
thought that landing these mega-events would open the way for widespread
celebrations of Brazil’s emergence as a developing-world powerhouse,
with Rio dazzling in its resurgence. But as Mr. Paes acknowledges,
things have not quite worked out that way.
Suplicy reencontra Joan Baez, mas diz que desta vez não terá 'beijo forte'
Agora entendemos a obsessão do Suplicy por Blowin in the Wind:
Baez faz parte das dezenas de histórias pitorescas que cercam o senador. Na década de 80, numa visita ao Brasil, eles quase teriam namorado, não fosse o fato de o petista ter pedido antes autorização para sua então mulher, Marta Suplicy. Que teria negado.
Bancada ruralista quer flexibilizar o Código Florestal
"Caso tenham a concordância do governo, as medidas sugeridas podem favorecer grandes proprietários rurais que desmataram . A
bancada ruralista quer permitir que seja feito um cadastro para cada
matrícula de um imóvel rural, em vez de um cadastro pela área total do
Isso porque é comum que imóveis rurais grandes estejam
divididos em áreas menores com diferentes registros. Se o Sicar aceitar o
cadastro por matrícula, é possível que o proprietário se beneficie com
regras para pequenas propriedades, apesar de o imóvel rural ser um só."
The Ideal ‘True Detective’ Soundtrack: A Southern Gothic Spotify Playlist
The incidental score has been great, as has the choice of songs, but
still, there’s a whole bunch of Southern Gothic-influenced sounds that
could fit on the show’s soundtrack. So to tide you through until Sunday,
here’s a speculative Spotify playlist of 15 songs that’d make a fine True Detective OST.
It’s Horrible to Be an Old Woman in Hollywood, Kim Novak Edition
"Hollywood may value youth above all else, but as we learned last night,
there’s nothing sorrier than an older woman who tries to look young.
Because Minnelli’s face has been nipped, lifted, and filled, even the
nice-to-a-fault DeGeneres joked that Minnelli has been reduced to an
imitation of herself. (The line registered as offensive to both Minnelli
and the trans community.) And 81-year-old Vertigo
star Kim Novak—who was roundly mocked for turning up onstage, two
decades after her last movie, exhibiting extensive plastic surgery—might
as well be dead. As comedian Rob Delaney cruelly joked:
“Will they have time to edit Kim Novak into the In Memoriam section?”
Even Matthew McConaughey’s mother, who last night aspired only to the
role of proud parent, was eviscerated for rocking a keyhole-neck gown
that gave the world a peek at her cleavage, which apparently only young
women are allowed to possess. Twitter commentators deemed the view “leathery,” “ancient,” “inappropriate,” and “terrifying.”
John Travolta called Idina Menzel Adele Dazeem: What's Your Travolta name?
When John Travolta called Idina Menzel "Adele Dazeem" at the Oscars, he created a new standard for superstardom: You're no one until you've had your name mangled by a confused, squinting John Travolta. What's your Travoltified name? Find out with our handy widget!
10 Things We Learned Following The Oscars on Social Media
"One of the most surreal moments in this year’s ceremony was when DeGeneres, bravely clad in all-white, went down into the crowd with three takeaway pizzas
– and a genuine delivery guy – to divvy them out among the carb-fearing
celebs. It was heartening how many seemed keen to get a slice of the
action – perhaps mindful of the fact they were on international
television with an unlined stomach and a free bar.
Chiwetel Ejiofor tried to swipe a whole box to himself; Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep both went in with elbows flying. Harrison Ford proved himself an expected master of logistics
– get your plate underneath quickly to prevent a toppings landslide,
Harrison, that’s the way. Even Martin Scorsese looked at home with a
recycled paper plate. Good old Jared Leto took a slice for his mum."
" As perspectivas são pessimistas: o parlamento da Crimeia, invadido por
pistoleiros pró-russos; seus aero
portos tomados por soldados vestidos de
uniforme russo; e o avanço de caminhões e helicópteros militares também
russos. Dá a impressão de que nos encaminhamos rumo a uma nova Guerra
Sebastopol continua definindo seu caráter russo de acordo com essa
mentalidade de lugar. As lembranças da Guerra da Crimeira agitam os mais
profundos sentimentos de orgulho e ressentimento frente ao Ocidente.
Embora a Rússia tenha sido derrotada, sempre apresentou a guerra como
uma vitória moral. Nicolás I é um dos heróis de Putin porque lutou pelos
interesses da Rússia contra todas as grandes potencias. Seu retrato
está pendurado na antessala do despacho presidencial no Kremlin."
Oscars 2014: 10 things to look out for at this year's ceremony | Film | theguardian.com
"Upon being nominated for this year’s Academy Awards, each contender
qualified for an official Oscar goody-bag worth an estimated $80,000.
The bag contains luxury holiday vouchers, a home-spa system, a “vaginal
rejuvenation” treatment called the O-shot
(the perfect Mother’s Day gift) and a tube of “horse shampoo”. We’re as
yet unsure whether this last item is a cleaning product for your horse
or a shampoo that leaves the nominee smelling like a sweating,
incontinent thoroughbred that’s just run in the Derby. Wrinkled noses
and the sound of gagging may clear up the mystery. "
Alain Resnais: 60 years of sensational cerebral film-making | Film | theguardian.com
Hiroshima Mon Amour, a long and intensely realised “conversation”
between two lovers, French and Japanese, played by Emmanuelle Riva
and Eiji Okada, which debate the meaning of memory, perception and
existence — after a section of the film which recounted in
documentary style, the effects of the Hiroshima bomb. The provocative
cymbal-clash of history and personal narrative, the refusal to offer
a clear narrative meaning, the infusion of geo-political dismay and
intense eroticism — it was all sensationally provocative."
True Detective: The women on the show are treated badly. But there’s a good reason.
"Ignoring women may be the show’s blind spot, but it is also one of its
major themes. True Detective is explicitly about the horrible things
that men do to women, things that usually go unseen and uninvestigated.
No one missed Dora Lange. Marie Fontenot disappeared, and the police let
a rumor stop them from following up. Another little girl was abducted,
and a report was never even filed. “Women and children are disappearing,
nobody hears about it, nobody puts it together,” Rust told his boss
Sunday night, outlining what he believes is a vast conspiracy in the
Bayou. Rust is haunted by women who aren’t there—his ex-wife and his
dead daughter—while Marty cannot deal appropriately with the women who
Alain Resnais, whose complex, intellectual films include ‘Hiroshima, Mon Amour, ’ dies at 91
"It has often been said that half of the fashion photography of the past 50 years owes a debt to “Marienbad.”
The movie represented an effort to “determine if it is possible to represent, even roughly, the mechanics of thought, not in reality, but in the minds of the characters,” Mr. Resnais told a reporter at the time.
Attempts to discern a plot, discover a hidden message or make an emotional connection with the characters in “Marienbad” are doomed to failure. “Marienbad” is best followed as if it were a string quartet, a ballet or a mysteriously animated painting that changes ever so slightly as you watch."
