When I attended the inaugural session of Willie Mae Ladies Rock Camp back in 2006, the experience literally changed my life. Over the course of three days, I played the drums for the very first time, collaborated on my first song, performed for a live audience, and formed an all-girl band that went on to record and play the N.Y.C. club circuit for the next three years. In the time since then, hundreds of other women have had similar experiences. And now the rad ... Read More
I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for The Amazing Kreskin, the world’s greatest mentalist. I remember first being mystified by his mind-reading tricks during one of his 61 appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in the ’70s. And when I discovered earlier this year that Hulu had made multiple episodes of his ’70s Canadian TV show The Amazing World of Kreskin available online, I devoured all the conversations on the occult he ...

What was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s last night on earth like? What was going through his mind on the eve of his assassination in 1968? This is the theme explored by 30-year-old Olivier Award-winning playwright Katori Hall in her compelling Broadway debut The Mountaintop, now playing at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater through January 15. Starring Hollywood luminaries Samuel L. Jackson as King and Angela Bassett as the maid who shows up with his evening meal ... Read More

Revenge is Sweet

BY Emily Rems in Boob Tube

Back in the Spring 2002 “Fight Like a Girl” Issue of BUST, I wrote a feature celebrating flicks about girls getting even. Some of my favorite movies of all time made the list, including Carrie, Nine to Five, and Heathers. And I was reminded again recently what great fodder the young woman + payback formula really is when I received a press screener of the aptly named new ABC drama Revenge*. Premiering Wednesday, September 21 (10/9 C), the show ... Read More
The 10th Annual Tribeca Film Festival has finally screened it’s last flick, and as the dust settles, it’s time to look back and appreciate some of the female directors whose films were among the fest’s most exceptional work. Keep an eye out for these titles in the coming year—their impressive showings here in N.Y.C. hopefully mean that distribution deals will be right around the corner: The Best Narrative Feature award went to first-time ...

The greatest living lineup of Courtney Love’s ever-evolving rock band Hole was seen in public together for the first time in 13 years last night, but they weren’t announcing any future plans to play together. Instead, Love, Melissa auf der Maur, and Eric Erlandson were rallying around their estranged drummer Patty Schemel at the premiere of P. David Ebersole’s documentary about her life, Hit So Hard, which screened at New York’s Museum of ... Read More

Review: Red Riding Hood

BY Emily Rems in Artsy

The premise of Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke’s latest supernatural-teen-girl drama, opening tomorrow, was so delicious and dark, it seemed destined for success. A re-imagining of the iconic Red Riding Hood fairy tale, the film casts It girl Amanda Seyfried as Valerie, an older, more sexually adventurous version of the little girl with the scarlet cloak, and gives her a juicy love triangle between a strapping woodsman (Shiloh Fernandez) and a ...

Review: Jane Eyre

BY Emily Rems in Artsy

No matter how many screen adaptations are made of Charlotte Brontë’s mysteriously romantic 1847 novel Jane Eyre (and there have been a lot) it’s always fascinating to see each new director’s take on this intriguing tale. Cary Joji Fukunaga helms the latest incarnation—out in NY and LA March 11 from Focus Features—and his choice of Alice in Wonderland’s young-yet-wizened Mia Wasikowska as the titular heroine was a decision I ...

R.I.P. Tura Satana

BY Emily Rems in Artsy

Back when I was in high school, my brother from another mother was a kid named Rufus who would invite me over to his house every day after school to watch cult movies. We watched tons of deranged shit, but my favorite film he showed me by far was the Russ Meyer classic Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! The film’s star, Tura Satana, with her sneering lips and skin-tight cat suit, was such a powerful presence, she seemed almost superhuman. So when I heard that ... Read More
