Another important element of the period film that was always a focus for me was the tragic romantic subplots. However, as a young lesbian I could see very little of myself...
A Very Murray Christmas premiered on Netflix just in time for the holiday season and 7 out of the 16 cast members have been featured in BUST!   Director Sophia Coppola,  Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Maya Rudolph, Jenny Lewis, and Jason Schwartzman are all former BUST cover stars, and David Johansen is a former Boy Du Jour.  The Netflix special combines the nostalgia of a Christmas Special Variety Show with the lethargic antagonism of Bill Murray, playing himself as an lackadaisical,  contractually-bound, entertainer who has run out of...
