    Carolyn Cassady dies at 90; wife of Beat legend Neal Cassady

      'Kill Your Darlings' is 'a love letter to the Beats'
    The superhero origin story has become popular in the last few years, so it makes sense the form might also spread to stories outside the comic-book genre — like Beat generation writers. The new film "Kill Your Darlings" tells the tale of how...
  • 'Kill Your Darlings' trailer: Daniel Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg

    'Kill Your Darlings' trailer: Daniel Radcliffe as Allen Ginsberg
    In most modern narratives, the story of the Beats began when Allen Ginsberg first read "Howl" to rapturous audiences, when his poetic evocation of youth gone wrong and hope and rebellion and power and gay love was banned and became famous. That was in...

    Review: Death and the Beats' birth drive 'Kill Your Darlings'

  • The Beats before they'd learned how to howl in 'Kill Your Darlings' ★★ 1/2

    The Beats before they'd learned how to howl in 'Kill Your Darlings' ★&#9733 1/2
    This is economically unfeasible thinking, I realize. But the only way we're ever going to get a great movie about the Beats is if someone makes it like there's nothing to lose, with no concern about whether audiences are going to "get it," or care, or...
  • Presenting two Linda Lovelace stories in one biopic

    Depending on when she wrote and talked about her life, Linda Lovelace had two very different perspectives about her work on "Deep Throat" and in adult cinema. She initially said she performed willingly and embraced becoming an icon of sexual freedom, then...
  • Review: 'Lovelace' reveals degradation of porn star's life

    How far does a girl have to go to untangle her tingle? This was the discreetly prurient poster question used to sell "Deep Throat" and Linda Lovelace to a mainstream public in 1972. The new biopic "Lovelace," about the grimly exploited porn star born...
  • 'Kill Your Darlings' Shows Daniel Radcliffe Is a Wiz at Career Moves

  • Samuel Fuller's 'Shock Corridor' arrived in mad times

    Samuel Fuller's 'Shock Corridor' arrived in mad times

  • Cedering Fox knows the power of speaking the written word

    Cedering Fox knows the power of speaking the written word
    Cedering Fox knows good actors, and isn't afraid to ask a favor. Her query is simple, and the actors almost always say yes. It's not like she wants them to be part of a hot new cable drama or a comedy Web series gone viral. Instead, she's asking them to...

    127 hours of gay cinema, give or take
    With his returning Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, organizer Franc Castro aims to strike an ambitious balance between provocative and fierce movies. And Castro is not sorry if that balance sometimes tilts toward the fiercer side of things with the...
