In the film, Cameron played a sailor who romances a white woman (Susan Shaw).

            The 35 Best Comedies of the 21st Century, Ranked

            The 35 Best Comedies of the 21st Century, Ranked
            Now more than ever, the world could use a laugh. This bizarre, in-progress century has already produced any number of great comedies, which is to say that many of your (and our) favorites were left out: sorry, “Toy Story 3”; sorry, “Knocked Up.” As we tend to lean toward the indie side — and away from certain men-behaving-badly movies — there are also some titles on here that you might not have seen.

            There are even some you may not consider to be straightforward comedies. You may not think of “Lost in Translation” or “Mistress America” as laugh riots, but we felt it best to be broad in our approach — any movie that balances its darker shades with cathartic humor was eligible. You’ll notice that we like women and Working Title (the British production company responsible for several titles on this list), which is to say: This is less a definitive

            Despite “Venom” already proving, for better or worse, that you don’t need Spider-Man to make a successful “Spider-Man” movie, it seems like Sony remains skeptical to the success of its own Marvel Universe. What was meant to be the first female superhero team-up for Sony, “Silver & Black,” was then split into separate solo films, but now the film’s original director, Gina Prince-Bythewood, says Sony is unsure about the project’s future without Spider-Man.

            How ‘Hamilton’ Became a Color-Conscious Casting Trailblazer, Before It Was Cool

            How ‘Hamilton’ Became a Color-Conscious Casting Trailblazer, Before It Was Cool
            With “Hamilton” available on Disney+ this weekend, the biggest sensation in Broadway history finally found a mass audience. For five years, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Pulitzer-winning refashioning of the Founding Fathers was the rare cultural event that only a select few could witness. Now, anyone can can see the original cast of mostly Black and brown faces assuming the roles of historic white figures, a decision that adds depth and provocation to every moment.

            The diversity presented a unique challenge: While the Puerto Rican Miranda always intended to play the lead, he and director Thomas Kail never specified ethnicities for any of the roles. Character breakdowns included a wide range of cultural references: Hamilton was “Eminem meets Sweeney Todd,” his wife Eliza was “Alicia Keys meets Elphaba,” peer-turned-killer Aaron Burr was “Javert meets Mos Def,” and George Washington was “John Legend meets Mufasa.” By the end of the original casting process,

            Hillary Clinton Ruminates on Her Legacy with ‘Hillary’ Director Nanette Burstein

            Hillary Clinton Ruminates on Her Legacy with ‘Hillary’ Director Nanette Burstein
            It only took 50 years in the spotlight, 2000 hours of behind-the-scenes footage from her 2016 Presidential Election campaign, and 35 hours of intensive one-on-one interviews to answer one of the most enduring mysteries of modern American history: Who is Hillary Clinton?

            It turns out, she’s exactly who she said she was.

            The specifics of why Clinton is perceived the way she is and how her interaction with the press and public has shaped her behavior — creating an ouroboros of feedback and adjustment that would haunt her entire political career — form the center of Nanette Burstein’s brilliant Hulu documentary series “Hillary.” The four-part series has done the heavy lifting for audiences. In candid conversations, Clinton herself unpacks her own life as framed by history.

            But while it’s impossible to capture the full nuance of how Clinton’s life intersects with the course of American history, as well as how it has shaped public perception of her,

            Charlie Kaufman Says Netflix Didn’t Ruin Movies: ‘Studios Ruined Movies’

            Charlie Kaufman Says Netflix Didn’t Ruin Movies: ‘Studios Ruined Movies’
            For years Netflix’s growth in the world of film — especially in terms of critical acclaim and winning awards — has been a topic of conversation with regards to the experience of seeing films and the industry in general. An argument is constantly made about the juggernaut streaming services being responsible for “destroying” all of that. A number of filmmakers have participated in this debate over the years, from Christopher Nolan, to Steven Spielberg, to Edward Norton.

            Charlie Kaufman is the latest filmmaker to chime in on Netflix’s influence on the movie industry, especially as he has an upcoming Netflix film being released on September 4, “I’m Thinking of Ending Things.” Written and directed by Kaufman, “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” is based on Ian Reid’s novel of the same name, a psychological thriller about a woman who drives with her boyfriend to his family’s isolated farmhouse.

            ‘Dark’: The Netflix Show’s Creators Discuss the Impossibility of Saying Goodbye
            [Note: The following interview discusses Season 3 of the Netflix series “Dark.”]

            If seeing an entire reality flipped in the last season of “Dark” seemed jarring, know that it felt just as dissonant to the people helping to bring it to life.

            When it came time for Martha (Lisa Vicari) to take on some of the some iconography that in previous seasons was associated with Jonas (Louis Hofmann), that exchange between the two main characters made for a moment that forced them and series co-creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar to recalibrate a little.

            “Just even her wearing the yellow raincoat in the costume test was really weird. Also for [Lisa] because it was so iconic for Jonas as his character. For Louis, being on set and she’s entering the room with his jacket, the first reaction was like, ‘Give me back my jacket! This is mine!'” Odar said in a recent interview with IndieWire.

            Of course,

            ‘Hanna’ Review: A Widened Scope Makes for a Stronger, Richer, and More Thrilling Season 2

            ‘Hanna’ Review: A Widened Scope Makes for a Stronger, Richer, and More Thrilling Season 2
            Season 2 of “Hanna” is brighter than the first. The show that once tracked its title character (Esmé Creed-Miles) through the Romanian wilderness and in grungy hideouts arrives with a renewed sense of purpose in a fresh set of locations. Sterile interrogation rooms give way more angular holding cells. The stereotypical brainwash aesthetics that popped up as the net of the show’s main conspiracy? In this new season, they give way to pastoral walks and Mediterranean destinations, each with their fair share of pastels.

            It’s not just the changing color palette or the extra dose of sun that makes Season 2 such a marked improvement. It’s the other elements of this tangled espionage narrative that makes those changes necessary. The program that led to Hanna’s kidnapping in the first place, largely a whisper until the opening season’s climactic blowout, is now front and center. Set in an idyllic rural English castle,

            ‘The Great’: Elle Fanning Refashions the Empress of Russia into a Ribald Feminist Icon

            ‘The Great’: Elle Fanning Refashions the Empress of Russia into a Ribald Feminist Icon
            The delicious words of writer and series creator Tony McNamara are what drew Elle Fanning to star as the titular Empress of Russia, Catherine, in Hulu’s series “The Great.” In this wild comedy, Fanning turns Catherine into a modern feminist icon up against the foul-mouthed royal boys’ club led by Peter III (Nicholas Hoult), a misogynistic dolt who she’s been forced to marry to escape a dreary life in Prussia.

            Fanning said that coming into the role, she didn’t know much about the Empress of Russia, except of course for that rumor that Catherine died while trying to have sex with a horse. “Sadly, that is all I knew,” she said. “Tony’s script isn’t the blueprint for everything that happened and is not a historical documentary. But he’s done a lot of research on Catherine and taken out the bits that would service him.

            There are a number of reasons to binge NatGeo’s “Barkskins,” an adaption of Annie Proulx’s celebrated novel, this summer. Most importantly, it covers an important period in North American history rarely acknowledged or known outside of Canada and accurately depicts the power of the Indigenous nations in New France at the time during the 17th Century. It also features some wonderfully impressive performances from Marcia Gay Harden, David Wilmot and, of course, David Thewlis.

            ‘An American Pickle’ Trailer: Two Seth Rogens Strive for the American Dream
            For everyone who has ever wished for a film starring Seth Rogen as two characters — one with a penchant for pickles — the trailer for “An American Pickle” has easily made their hyper-specific dream come true.

            Directed by Brandon Trost and based on Simon Rich’s 2013 New Yorker novella, “An American Pickle” — HBO Max’s first original film — stars Rogen as both Herschel Greenbaum, a struggling laborer who immigrates to America in 1920, and Ben Greenbaum, Herschel’s mild-mannered computer programmer grandson.

            The film brings both Greenbaums together as the result of Herschel’s accident in the pickle factory in which he works, where he is brined in a vat and preserved for 100 years, emerging in present-day Brooklyn to be with Ben, his only remaining relative.From the trailer, Herschel’s quest for the American dream doesn’t just stop after he’s fallen into a vat of pickles.
