This week's Week Of Women brings us a new movie by Dee Rees, a new TV version of Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It, and new music by Mavis Staples — so we've got a busy week ahead of us! As a reminder, we haven't seen, listened to, or read all these ourselves; when we have, we'll include a link. MOVIES Mudbound The brilliant Dee Rees (Pariah, Bessie) directs this historical drama about a white family and a black family in post-WWII Mississippi, based on the novel by...

  It Happened In L.A. is a modern-day comedy of manners that follows a group of 30-something Los Angelinos as they search for the elusive happily-ever-after and ponder if it even exists. The film primarily follows Annett, a former writer who is dissatisfied in her longterm relationship, as she compares what she and her partner have against the seemingly perfect couples in their friend group and doles out unsolicited advice to her token single friend. She is irritating, selfish and totally relatable.  Annette is the kind of unlikable...
We are so excited to announce that BUST's December/January cover star is Greta Gerwig! You might know her best as the star of beloved films Mistress America and Frances Ha (both of which she also co-wrote), but Gerwig is now making a name for herself as a director with her incredible solo directorial debut, Lady Bird. Gerwig also wrote the film, which follows a teenage girl (Saoirse Ronan) and her turbulent relationship with her mother (Laurie Metcalf) during her senior year in Sacramento, 2002. Make...
  The dawn of the 1990s was truly a beautiful time. Teenagers started dressing like walking thrift stores. MTV started showing videos by bands like Nirvana and Soundgarden, who had previously been regarded as underground/hyper local favorites exclusively. And magazines like Rolling Stone and Spin started putting bands that still had day jobs at diners and hotels on their glossy covers. It felt like the dirt was getting kicked up in a widely exciting way, and bands that had spent long and hard years fighting for...

  The Marvel Universe is ever-expanding, but Netflix’s newest addition, The Punisher, is set to blow fans away. Viewers will be happy to recognize Deborah Ann Woll’s character, Karen Page, from Daredevil – in both shows she is in the position to be the trope “girl in the refrigerator,” but instead is the boss chick we all wish to be. The Punisher follows Frank Castle, another character introduced in Daredevil, who stomps through NYC avenging his wife and children’s death, all while being presumed dead. The...
Since the spring release of Wonder Woman, in which Gal Gadot starred as the titular character, the actress has continued to play a real-life superhero when it comes to fighting back against sexual harassment and assault. According to the New York Post, Gadot will not reprise her role as Diana Prince unless producer Brett Ratner is removed entirely from the franchise. Over the past month, six women have come forward with stories of sexual misconduct at the hands of Ratner, reported the the Los Angeles Times. During...
    Spoilers for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s November 10th episode (and other episodes). The CW series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has always referenced lead character Rebecca’s mental health — hey, the word “crazy” is in the title, after all. But as the very first season’s theme song tells us, “The situation’s a lot more nuanced than that.” The show's depiction of mental illness goes way back, though it's often done so subtly that viewers might not remember. We see Rebecca throw away her meds in the season premiere, for example. The show...
    Two weeks ago, the highly anticipated Stranger Things 2 dropped on Netflix, and last month, season 2 of the surging-in-popularity Riverdale began, with teenagers and adults alike binging on these childhood-focused dramas. These two shows aren’t just connected by their popularity or by the shared casting of Shannon Purser as Barb on Stranger Things and as Ethel Muggs on Riverdale. Rather, they are connected through a similar approach to casting their adult characters with actors from the ’80s and ’90s that alters the viewing experience...
