Editor, The Dissolve | I'm an expert in all things that nature abhors.

Paul Schrader doesn’t want you to see his new movie — Because it's not "a Paul Schrader movie."

Jason Schwartzman and Alex Ross Perry on their lifetime milestone movies — After two little-seen but critically acclaimed projects filmed on a shoestring budget ( Impolex and The Color Wheel), Alex Ross Perry emerged from 2014's Sundance Film Festival with his most biting, mature film to date, Listen Up Philip , which debuts in limited release today.

Out Of The Past: Tim Robbins was born on this date in 1958 — The smart actor plays dumb guys better than just about anyone.

Before Twin Peaks returns to TV, it’s first coming to bookshelves — Series co-creator Mark Frost will pen a novel bridging the gap between the original series and the upcoming third season.

The Dissolve on... our favorite long takes — In addition to rave reviews for star Michael Keaton, the new is garnering attention for the way director Alejandro González Iñárritu frames the film as more or less one long, unbroken take.

With Re-Animator, Stuart Gordon pushed horror and comedy over the line and beyond — "Did you ever see that movie where that body is walking around, carrying its own head and the head goes down on that babe?" So asks American Beauty's Lester Burnham (Kevin Spacey) of his neighbor Ricky Fitts (Wes Bentley) as they get high outside the catered event where Ricky is working as a waiter.

Out Of The Past: — Ingmar Bergman's most famous film helped define world cinema for American viewers.

Werner Herzog narrates this Penguins of Madagascar preview for some reason — "All I see here is base fornication and chaos. And also, widdle baby penguins."

@MattFini OUIJA board? More like OUIJA bored. (Where do I pick up my paycheck?)

A friend saying "What's up?" is usually the scariest part of a PG-13 horror movie.

Oct 22, 2014

People next to me wondering if it's pronounced "OW-JUH." They don't deserve to see OUIJA. Philistines.

Oct 22, 2014

Early for OUIJA screening. S-O E-X-C-I-T-E-D.

@MatthewDessem I'm intrigued by this statement and would like to see it developed at greater length. For an outlet of some sort.
