The Age of Movies: Selected Writings of Pauline Kael: A Library of America Special Publication

Price: points - Details)


A master film critic at her witty, exhilarating, and opinionated best in a career-spanning collection—the first new selection in more than a generation

“Film criticism is exciting just because there is no formula to apply,” Pauline Kael once observed, “just because you must use everything you are and everything you know.” Between 1968 and 1991, as regular film reviewer for The New Yorker, Kael used those formidable tools to shape the tastes of a generation. She had a gift for capturing, with force and fluency, the essence of an actor’s gesture or the full implication of a cinematic image. Kael called movies “the most total and encompassing art form we have,” and her reviews became a platform for considering both film and the worlds it engages, crafting in the process a prose style of extraordinary wit, precision, and improvisatory grace.

Her ability to evoke the essence of a great artist-an Orson Welles or a Robert Altman-or to celebrate the way even seeming trash could tap deeply into our emotions was matched by her unwavering eye for the scams and self-deceptions of a corrupt movie industry. Here are her appraisals of era-defining films such as BreathlessBonnie and ClydeThe LeopardThe GodfatherLast Tango in ParisNashville-along with many others, some awaiting rediscovery, all providing the occasion for masterpieces of observation and insight, alive on every page.

Flushing Hollywood; Fake News and Fake Boobs: A Memoir

Price: $19.95
(as of Jun 16,2021 22:31:56 UTC – Details)


In Flushing Hollywood Fake News, Fake Boobs: A Memoir Hutchison finally shares the unabashed truth about such topics as:

  • The determination and sacrifices it takes to make it in Hollywood.
  • The feast, famine, competition, and back stabbing of the entertainment world.
  • Brushing up against blatant racism, sexism, greed and politicalized prejudice, with specific celebrities such as Jamie Foxx, Sam Jackson, Sean Penn and Leonardo DiCaprio.
  • What it was like working with Tom Hanks.
  • Being blackballed by the industry at large.
  • Contending with a Mother-in-Law from Hell.
  • The fake news of the entertainment media.

In the first half of Flushing Hollywood Fake News, Fake Boobs: A Memoir, Hutchison takes the reader on a journey from childhood to his struggles up the ladder of success, and eventual (oft times surreal and humorous) adventures co-starring in movies like The Green Mile w/ Tom Hanks, Bait w/ Jamie Foxx, and I Am Sam w/ Sean Penn. However what sets Hutchison’s book apart from other Hollywood Stories from previous authors is he’s unafraid of telling the truth. Hutchison’s account will raise eyebrows and ruffle more than a few feathers.

In the second half of Flushing Hollywood Fake News, Fake Boobs: A Memoir, Hutchison waxes prolific about his controversial, tumultuous, and often misunderstood marriage to sixteen-year old, Courtney Stodden, and how their union not only turned Hollywood (and the world) upside down, but killed the actor’s career as agents, talent managers, casting directors, producers, etc., dropped and black-balled him, the press pummeled him, and the public excoriated him.

Hutchison doesn’t stop there though. He reveals for the first time ever specific aspects of his marriage to Courtney Stodden that will shock, surprise, entertain, and astonish the reader.

    Such As:

  • Courtney Stoddens Fake Pregnancy.
  • Courtney Stoddens Fake miscarriage and the continued pretense to perpetuate the fraud Fake News!
  • A Fake Separation Fake News!
  • A Fake Divorce Fake News!

Written with humor, wit, heartbreak, yet never malice nor mean spiritedness Hutchison’s insightful Flushing Hollywood Fake News, Fake Boobs: A Memoir pulls no punches.

It s one half tabloid sensation and the other, a page-turning unconventional love story. At last the Truth!

Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth’s Husband And Duke Of Edinburgh, Dies At 99

Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh and husband of Queen Elizabeth II, has died at age 99, the royal family announced Friday.

Philip and the queen were married for more than 70 years, making him the longest-serving spouse of a reigning British monarch. He was the oldest-ever male member of the British royal family.

Philip was born on the Greek island of Corfu on June 10, 1921, to Prince Andrew of Greece and Princess Alice of Battenberg.

His family belonged to the royal Danish House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg, which had been installed on the Greek throne at the end of the 19th century. They were exiled from Greece after a revolutionary, anti-monarchy court banished Philip’s father for life. The family fled on a British Royal Navy warship in which the young prince reportedly slept in a crib that had been fashioned from an old orange box.

Philip was later sent to Great Britain, where he attended the Cheam Preparatory and Gordonstoun boarding schools. 

The Royal Naval College at Dartmouth, where the prince enrolled at age 17, was the first place he spent significant time with his future wife, a distant cousin who was then 13 years old. (The two had the same great-great-grandparents, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.) Then-Princess Elizabeth and her family visited the college in 1939 and, shortly after, she and Philip began exchanging letters.

During a visit to Balmoral Castle in Scotland in 1946, they decided to get married. The king agreed to the marriage but asked that they keep the engagement secret until after Elizabeth’s 21st birthday.

Before he married Elizabeth in 1947, Philip abandoned his Greek and Danish royal titles and became a British citizen. He began using the name Mountbatten, an Anglicized version of his mother’s maiden name, Battenberg. He was given several royal titles including Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth and Baron Greenwich. He wasn’t formally made a prince of the United Kingdom until 1957.

The couple married at Westminster Abbey in November 1947. The ceremony was broadcast on the radio to 200 million people.

Philip resumed his naval career, which he had temporarily suspended after getting married, in 1949 when he was appointed first lieutenant and second-in-command of a destroyer based in Malta. After moving back and forth between London and Malta, Philip returned to the U.K. in 1951, taking an open-ended leave from the Navy upon news that the king had grown ill.

“I thought I was going to have a career in the Navy but it became obvious there was no hope. … There was no choice,” Philip later said, according to Vanity Fair. “That’s life. I accepted it. I tried to make the best of it.”

Throughout the early years of Elizabeth’s reign, which began after her father died in February 1952, Philip’s relaxed demeanor often complemented her more serious persona, which Time magazine described in 1957 as being “never fully relaxed in public.”

But acting as consort didn’t come easily to Philip at first. According to Vanity Fair, he jokingly referred to himself as a “refugee husband” in the early days of the queen’s reign and struggled to shape the duties of his job.

The couple had a significant disagreement after Elizabeth announced she planned to keep her family name of Windsor. “I am the only man in the country not allowed to give his name to his children,” Philip reportedly said to friends.

Phillip and Elizabeth had four children ― Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward ― born from 1948 to 1964. To include her husband’s name in the family tree, Elizabeth determined that her descendants who did not use the title of “royal highness” would take on the family name Mountbatten-Windsor

In later years, Philip became notorious for his controversial — and often racist — “jokes” to members of the public, like when he told a British student living in China “if you stay here much longer, you will go home with slitty eyes.”

The first public acknowledgment of his advancing years came as he was preparing to turn 90, when Buckingham Palace announced that the duke planned to step down as president or patron of more than a dozen organizations ahead of his milestone birthday in 2011. 

He announced his retirement from conducting royal engagements in 2017, though he did attend his grandson Prince Harry’s wedding to American actor Meghan Markle in May 2018. He was present despite reports that he had suffered a fractured rib only days earlier, an injury that The Sun newspaper reported he had sustained while taking a bath. 

In January 2019, he was involved in a car crash near Sandringham Estate, the queen’s Norfolk retreat. The driver and the passenger of the car that his Land Rover collided with required medical attention, though he was apparently unhurt. Following the crash, Buckingham Palace reported that Philip voluntarily surrendered his driver’s license. 

He is survived by his wife, the queen; four children; eight grandchildren, including Princes William and Harry; and 10 great-grandchildren.

Jelly Coasts and Milk Rivers, the show

Liene Pavlovska, Jelly Coasts and Milk Rivers, installation views, July 22- August 19, 2020, TIK, Riga, LV

The show included video work, that was a collaboration with choreographer Sintija Siliņa. In the role: dancer Inga Raudinga

The show “Jelly Coasts and Milk Rivers” is created around the interest in formation of representations of collective desires and how narratives of past, present and future manifest and are constructed in a conditional urban environment. With an interest in the roles of actor and spectator, as well as the changeable margin between them, I was looking for common features in the urban environment and the performance creation process, viewing ideology as a metaphoric theatre director. The show was developed as experiential route and multimedia installation, with close relationship with surrounding architecture, emphasizing on its histories. When there is a moment to get on the stage?

“Getting on the stage is accompanied by dazzling lights, and for a moment it seems that the public disappears.”

“His profile page on the digital contracting site states: “I am an American Male Voice Over
Actor. I do e-learning, medical narration, meditation, whiteboards, YouTube, games,
videos, and most anything else that needs just the right voice! “Such a voice will fi t to
describe Jelly Coasts and Milk Rivers!”

“Thanks for waiting. Please wait, someone will contact you soon.”
