Weiner

Weiner Josh Kriegman & Elyse Steinberg, directors Starring: Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin, Laurence O’ Donnell, Sydney Leathers Documentary Feature Anthony Weiner is a great subject for a documentary. The former Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives and New York City Councilor had apparently thrown away a brilliant political career when he was caught sexting with multiple women in 2011. Two years later, with the full-hearted support of his wife Huma Abedin, Weiner decided to revive his career by running for mayor of New York. At that point, Josh Kriegman, a former Weiner political aide, his filmmaking partner Elyse Steinberg, were allowed unprecedented access by Weiner to make a doc about his home life and campaign. At first, all went well. Audiences in New York took to Weiner, accepting his apology and embracing his opinions about how to better the city. Huma, a quiet but brilliantly effective woman, who is one of Hilary Clinton’s main political insiders, made rare public statements endorsing her man. At one point, in the Democratic mayoral primary Weiner was neck and neck with Bill de Blasio, who eventually was the winning candidate in the ensuing election. What happened to Weiner was extraordinary. He was caught in yet another sexting scandal, this time involving a part-time porn actress named Sydney Leathers. Rather than resigning from the campaign, Weiner insisted on fighting on, bringing his marriage and integrity into microscopic scrutiny and huge media attention. Weiner became the subject, once again, of jokes on all the late night shows from Colbert to Leno. He was harassed everywhere he went, including—memorably—a Brooklyn deli where he engaged...

The Neon Demon

The Neon Demon Nicolas Winding Refn, director & co-script w/Mary Laws & Polly Stenham Starring: Elle Fanning (Jesse), Jena Malone (Ruby) Karl Giusman (Dean), Bella Heathcote (Gigi), Abbey Lee (Sarah), Christina Hendricks (Roberta), Keanu Reeves (Hank) Is being an auteur a justification for creating horror films? Some would say yes and cite David Cronenberg and George Romero as two excellent filmmakers who shook us up with films like The Fly and Night of the Living Dead but did it artistically. If they can do it, should there be any reservations when Danish auteur Nicolas Winding Refn does the same? The Neon Demon is a deliberately provocative film about the modeling industry in Hollywood. Refn, whose previous films include Bronson, Drive and the Pusher trilogy, is clearly a filmmaker with a vision and a number of directorial signatures. His films are violent, pictorial and, at their best, absolutely compelling. But he’s also been accused of being a manipulative misogynist, incapable of writing and directing a film about women. His response to those accusations is this film. Set in Los Angeles, The Neon Demon stars Elle Fanning as Jesse, a 16-year-old virgin, who comes to Southern California to make it in the big time as a model. She quickly gets picked up by an agent, is immediately featured in hot film shoots and has a make up artist named Ruby (Jena Malone) come on to her as a friend and mentor. But things aren’t all great for Jesse. Two of Ruby’s friends, Sarah and Gigi, are models and jealous of her success. Jesse’s motel manager, Hank (Keanu Reeves) is an angry...
