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.

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.

PrEP Talk: Treatment = Prevention Comments (0)

Cleve-Jones

Cleve Jones is featured in the Showtime documentary (airing tonight) called The Last One, about the rise of HIV infections. He wades into the PrEP conversation with comments underscoring the importance of prevention by any means available:

“There is kind of a controversy going on in the community right now around the issue of pre-exposure prophylaxis. Of course the slogan from my generation was that Silence = Death. I think the slogan today needs to be that Treatment =  Prevention. The researchers that I’m in touch with, and I still speak with some of them, tell me that a vaccine and a cure are still years away. But we do know that people were successfully treated, people who are HIV+ are being successfully treated are very unlikely to transmit the disease. Now we know that uninfected individuals by taking one pill a day can prevent themselves from being infected. Now there’s a controversy about this.

“People are speaking in very harsh terms about young people and criticizing them for being irresponsible. There’s a lot of finger wagging, shaming and blaming going on. I wish it would stop. My message to young people and what I think everybody should be saying to these young people is that we love them. That they are beautiful. That their lives matter. That their lives have value. That the choices they make are important. We’re talking about a population that does not need to be further put down. We’re talking about a group of people who need to be raised up and shown as much as possible the promise that we’ve seen when we look at them.”

All The KINGDOM's Men: Matt Lauria's MEN'S FITNESS Secrets Comments (0)

Matt-Lauria-muscles

Sexy Matt Lauria from TV's Kingdom talks with Men's Fitness (December 2014) about how he beefed up without putting any meat in his mouth, aka, the un-fun way:

“Jonathan Tucker, Nick Jonas, and I went through an intensive two-week fight training camp prior to shooting. So every day we'd all carpool out to Pomona (CA), where the gym was, and spend the day together having this crash course basically 'intravenously injected' into us: wrestling, Muay Thai, boxing, jiu-jitsu. I think the exertion and the hours we spent together really bonded us.”

I'm even more interested in seeing their training sessions than in seeing their show.
