I've updated my mega-post on biggest living stars who are 80 years old and older, so that it now has a Top 20 (subjective!), a Top 40, another 129 notables and hundreds more who are simply, well, alive! Let me know who I've missed, who's long dead and who I'm crazy to think belongs/doesn't belong in the Top 20.

Beauty Myth: Madonna's Nipples Are The Problem Comments (0)

Madonna-Liz-JonesJones could've tried a little harder with her expression, but this one helps prove her point.

Journalist Liz Jones, writing for The Mail on Sunday in the UK, has conducted a little experiment based on the Mert and Marcus photos of Madonna that currently adorn Interview. Jones claims:

“When I first saw her provocative, vaguely sado-masochistic photo shoot in Interview magazine, I was full of admiration.”

I say claims because Jones has had vicious things to say about Madonna in the past, so it's very hard to accept that her first thought on seeing those photos wasn't really, “Oh, here's an opportunity to bash Madonna and get some clicks.”

She then spent money on Botox and fillers, and recreated the shots. She was not into any of the styling, complaining of how everything fit, felt and even smelled.

At the end of her breattakingly short essay, Jones has transformed from an admirer of the images to a vocal critic of Madonna and of the message she assumes Madonna is sending. With the certainty of a religious fundamentalist—one concerned about not the arousal of male desire but the incitement of female self-doubt—Jones declares:

Lost World: A Review Of STILL ALICE Comments (0)

Still-AliceEarly frost

BOY CULTURE RATING: *** out of ****

In Still Alice, an articulate, accomplished linguistics professor (Julianne Moore) begins to forget things. She gets lost. She repeats herself. She suspects she could have a brain tumor, but the real answer is even more devastating—at the age of 50, she has early-onset Alzheimer's disease.

Her workaholic husband (Alec Baldwin), handsome son (Hunter Parrish) and warring daughters—one archly perfect (Kate Bosworth), one studiously rebellious (Kristen Stewart)—have to cope with this out-of-the-blue development, and must make choices about their own lives and about the woman who is at the core of their family.

Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland were hired to adapt the film from Lisa Genova's highly regarded novel of the same name, and wound up directing it. The partners in creativity and in love have crafted a no-frills, achingly intimate document of what often is a breathtakingly swift decline, one which allows Moore precious little space in which to do anything more than be. The result is a moving, unaffected, ephemeral performance of the type for which she is renowned, and a performance which could become the one that finally brings her the Oscar she's richly deserved for many years.

Still-Alice--Kristen-Stewart-and-Julianne-Moore_article_story_largeBaldwin, always so good, may have burned himself with his long stint on 30 Rock and as a frequent SNL host; he has snarky resting face, which distracts from his character and from the film. Stewart, on the other hand, gives a mature performance that perfectly complements Moore's. The others aren't really fleshed out enough to judge.

Ultimately, the film is so hands-off it sometimes feels a little underdeveloped. That hurts it as an overall artistic statement, making it feel like an unadorned TV movie at times, but that approach does nothing to damage Moore and Stewart's effortless shared depth.

Richard-Glatzer-Wash-Westmoreland-quinceneraGlatzer (L) & Westmoreland (R)

As a postscript: It may surprise some to know that Westmoreland's directing career was launched in gay porn in the '90s, and that his work with Glatzer includes the broadly comic The Fluffer (2001), set in that milieu. Less of a surprise is that the men co-directed the affecting drama Quinceañera in 2006. Their career trajectory is definitely moving in the right direction.
