Behind the scenes of 3 Women, 1977
Denis Villeneuve’s latest work is a wonderfully done mystery that’s anything but normal. It’s like David Lynch, David Cronenberg and Alfred Hitchcock met one night, drank too much wine, had some mind-blowing sex and then an oddly shaped baby popped out the next morning. Enemy is grim and altogether puzzling. The ending is open to many different interpretations, which is probably why it has detractors. But all art is subjective, and that’s part of what makes it so great. Between this and Prisoners, Villeneuve has proven that he can set a mood and masterfully tell a story, and is quickly becoming one of my favorite directors. Oh, and two Jake Gyllenhaals? I want to be in the middle of that sandwich.
So, this Dumb and Dumber To trailer is everything I have ever hoped for without ever knowing that I was hoping for it. Since Jim Carrey’s revisiting the past, can we please get him to revisit The Mask, Ace Ventura and Liar, Liar as well?

The magnificent Ruby Dee passed away yesterday and although my favorite performance of hers is Mother Abigail in the ’90s miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand, she was also a beloved political activist and Oscar nominee. Here’s an excerpt from Def Poetry Jam of Ms. Dee giving life to some powerful words about Tupac Shakur. RIP.
