Here’s what the Pop Culture Happy Hour team was up to—and what you should check out this weekend.
I watched this movie last week in MoMa As part of a retrospective exhibition of the latest Indian independent films. This year is supposed to be significant for Indian films. The film is in the regional language Maithili. it’s called Jamak Garthe English name is village house And the director is Ashal Mishra.
This movie is about a family and their home. For two decades their house has remained stable. Mishra charts changes in the family through deaths and births. When the family thrives, the house looks better. When they’re going through tougher financial times, the house looks worse. It’s beautiful. It can be a metaphor for hundreds of things. I would highly recommend Achal Mishra Jamak Gar (village house); It is available to rent or buy vimeo. – Badtri Chaudhry
Rosalia Motomami a trip
The highlight of the week was seeing Rosalia here in Los Angeles as part of her recently released album tour, Motomami. It was one of the best parties I’ve ever been to. I love her. I love her music. I think she’s an incredibly innovative and sexy pop star for the moment.
The tour is also really interesting as it takes in the scenery, you might expect a stylized Spanish flamenco energy, but it’s a rather ultra-modern pop party. One of the highlights of the party was when she sang a song I really like called “Candy”. This beautiful song was performed with its dancers “mottopapis”.
It was great and it’s an album that I really love. I still tons of it. If the tour takes place in your city, I highly recommend watching Rosalía’s performance. – Bilal Qureshi
In honor of Mrs. Angela Lansbury
What makes me happy is the flow of appreciation for life and work Mrs. Angela Lansbury, who died earlier this week. It just fits. There are times when Twitter ceases to be a space for hell and becomes useful, such as this week when gay Twitter, Twitter movie and theater Twitter came together to form Gay Film & Theater and Twitter “Voltron” to point you in the direction of the shows you want to see.
Now, there is a lot that we all know. She wrote the murderAnd the Beauty and the beastAnd the Sweeney Todd And the Bedknobs and broom. But if you haven’t watched much darker things to Angela Lansbury like her first performance as Nancy’s scheming maid in the 1944 film Gaslight, a movie that added “Gaslight” to our dictionary. One reason for this is Angela Lansbury’s performance. Also, her popularly known performance as a mother in the 1962 movie prismatic filter Chilling and terrifying.
But I will direct you not towards a sinister performance, but to a towering one – attractive, persuasive, and powerful. You’ll find it on the 1966 album from Broadway Mami (Music and lyrics by Jerry Herman). It is very important when searching for this offer that you include the term Angela Lansbury in the search bar. Because if you’re looking for a Lucille Ball version, I’ll come over to your house and slap that laptop off your damn table. Show some respect this week of all weeks.
Angela Lansbury had a brass instrument-like voice, which meant it must have been written very privately. Jerry Herman knew how to write for her. Everyone knows a lot of songs from the musical “We Need a Little Christmas,“ Some people know “it’s today”. If you’ve been in a gay bar for the past four decades, you’ve seen it bosom buddies on TV. But here’s a clip (see video below) from the song “Open a New Window,” where Angela Lansbury plays the unruly and willful socialite Mamie Dennis, urging her nephew Patrick to live an unconventional and fun life.
This song is marching, you can tell, and it’s led by the lead, this clear call, the whole brass section, that’s Angela Lansbury’s voice. You could do a lot worse this weekend than go down a YouTube rabbit hole in tribute to the great late Angela Lansbury. “Dame Mame” as it is known in my house. That’s what I’ll do. I got the champagne on ice because as we were newly reminded this week, even though it’s 96, the fizz doesn’t sparkle for long. – Glenn Weldon
More recommendations from the Pop Culture Happy Hour newsletter
by Linda Holmes
I’ll have a full review next week from The second part on HBObut it’s definitely worth a watch if you find yourself entangled in the first installment in 2020, which premieres Monday night.
Do you know what gave my week real fun? The fond kitchen recipe for pumpkin bread. Excuse me, I eat a whole loaf.
I had mixed feelings about new movie RosalynNow streaming on Hulu, it’s the story of Romeo and Juliet from the point of view of his ex-wife. I wasn’t very passionate about the script, but I do love Kaitlyn Dever’s lead performance, and there are some very nice jokes about other romantic comedies in the oversight of the music. Perfect for an afternoon with a cup of tea.
Another one I want to alert you to despite my conflicting feelings about it early on (even though I only had an episode): Ryan Murphy, who just hit Netflix with his Jeffrey Dahmer project, now has another one available: observer depends on a The true story that appeared in The Cut About a family that bought a house and then started getting really scary messages. I guess the start of the series is slow, but the cast – Naomi Watts! Bobby Cannavale! Margo Martindale! Mia Farrow! – It certainly intrigues me.
