Warren Beatty partner

I watched Wanda (1970)

2020.09.11 09:13 BazF91 I watched Wanda (1970)

This film has weird staying power. I wouldn't say I loved it or would necessarily recommend to anybody, but those who have seen it will know that it has an unusual effect on you.
Some background: Barbara Loden was the wife of Elia Kazan, and starred in a couple of his movies, notably Splendor in the Grass as the 'deadbeat slutty sister' who the father spurns and epitomises to Warren Beatty the kind of life he wants to avoid at all costs. Although she was a minor character in the film and dies off-screen, her acting in the movie really brought the character to life and I was perhaps even more interested in what happened to her than what happened to Natalie Wood's character.
Nine years later, she directed her own independent low-budget movie Wanda, the only one of her career as she sadly died in 1980 from cancer. In a sense, I almost saw this film as a spiritual extension of her character in Splendor, because Loden plays an utterly apathetic destitute of a woman who seems to have no ambition.
It's a tough watch because many of the times you'd expect Wanda to change her behaviour to make her life better, she doesn't. This is passiveness on a new scale. At the beginning of the movie she shows up late to a court hearing and relinquishes her children to her estranged husband. She subsequently loses her job for being lazy. Afterwards, she drifts into a sort of misadventure where she lets other people make decisions for her, inadvertently becoming a partner in crime to a bank robber.
While absurd in its plot, Loden really underplays just about everything she can to make Wanda's world seem as drab and depressing as possible. Not much seems to happen, but when you look back on the movie, actually quite a lot happens.
It's true that it's difficult to watch a loser be a loser, and never have an epiphany (as many real-life 'losers' do not) but there are a couple of moments that really shine through and stick with you. The first and main moment is that, when she manages to pull off a part of the plan during a crime scene, her new master tells her she did a good job and she smiles for the first and only time in the movie. It's clear this moment means the world to her, she is craving some sort of approval, even if it comes from a bank robber who just threatened the lives of a whole innocent family.
The second moment is when she manages to overcome her passiveness and avoid being raped at the end of the movie. It's an interesting moment because we see that even Wanda has her limits, but it still doesn't inspire her to take control of her life.
I will say I thought Barbara Loden was a bit too attractive to play her leading lady. Her acting was fantastic but she just didn't have the stereotypical look of a loser. Perhaps it's a simple lesson that losers can look attractive too, who knows?

2020.08.03 18:43 physics223 McCabe and Mrs. Miller: the best anti-Western of all time

“The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” and “Unforgiven” are among my father’s favorite films. From a very young age, I had always believed that my father was a man of taste. Subconsciously, I also developed a desire to develop a sophisticated taste, not only with film, but also in literature.
It was about fifteen years ago when I decided to watch “The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly” with my dad, and even though the film’s details are hazy, I recall Clint Eastwood to be a laconic, complex character who was virile and potent enough to face other gunfighters head-on. As my knowledge of the Western film genre deepened, I recognized that the gunfighter-as-loner was one of the genre’s tropes. The gunfighter was intelligent, masculine, and a maestro with guns. He also saved the women by the end of the film. Even John Ford’s Searchers followed this trope: the difference was that Ethan Edwards was also a conflicted racist.
McCabe and Mrs. Miller, however, was a more thorough deconstruction of the genre. If “The Searchers” was great because it was the apex of a Western, “McCabe” is great because of its subversion.
The eponymous John McCabe isn’t intelligent: he’s cocky and confident, which people in the frontier town he arrives at during the beginning of the film believe is competence. Upon the completion of his brothel, he slowly becomes the central figure in the small town. However, his initial attempts at the brothel ended up in failure: he was not business-savvy and was prone to myopic thinking. When Mrs. Miller’s character overhears their conversation as he was buying women, she follows him after some time on a steam traction engine and takes the reins of the business from him.
This is what is impressive with the film. Mrs. Miller is the more intelligent one between the two of them. She is the one with more business-savvy, caution, and foresight. In a world where women were dealt as chattel, she was an astute businesswoman and a reader. She was the one who saved McCabe’s unfocused efforts into business, eventually generating a first-class whorehouse.
In fact, the film features women as more mature individuals than men. When the women are together, they share a tangible community. However, outside Berg’s loyalty toward McCabe, the men are seen to be irascible and always in a state of tension. Their gathering around the gambling table, or even while dancing the jig, reflect solitary individuals congregating rather than a feeling of harmony. A partnership offered by Sheehan early on in the film is quickly rejected by McCabe, because he eschews such things.
McCabe, however, is not merely a bumbling idiot. In fact, by choosing to partner with Mrs. Miller, he was ahead of his time. He treats Mrs. Miller as an equal, which was rare during the time, and even falls in love with her, despite knowing that her profession will always be tearing them apart. A problem arises for McCabe when a large company sees the value of the town he has settled in and seeks to buy him out. However, he overplays his hand and has to deal with people being sent to kill him.
Even the gunfight obviates the usual face-to-face gunfights. Although McCabe puts himself in a quandary because of his myopic thinking with both Sheehan and the Shaugnessy mining group, he had wile when he needed it most: he killed two gunmen by shooting them in the back, and the third one by playing possum before dying in the snow. Instead of the killing being done during high noon, it was done during winter.
I’ll say little more about the cinematography and the acting. The cinematography was, of course, beautiful; Julie Christie was excellent, and Warren Beatty was good enough.
It’s probably my favorite Western of all time, because it goes against so many tropes in the Western genre and yet nevertheless tells an involving drama about the pursuit of the American dream. At least when the chips were down, McCabe fought as best as he could.
What did you guys think about the film?

2017.11.29 13:53 Scientist34again Better Know a State: Ohio – discuss Ohio politics and candidates

Welcome to our 35th Better Know a State (BKAS), which will focus on OHIO. As I indicated before, the plan is to do these state-by-state, highlighting upcoming elections, progressive candidates in those states and major issues being fought (with an emphasis on Democratic, Independent and third party candidates). State residents can let me know if I’ve missed anything important or mistakenly described some of these issues.
Interestingly, Ohio is a state where Justice Democrats and BrandNew Congress do not yet have any candidates. That was rather surprising to me given Ohio’s perennial swing state status. But maybe there are some progressive candidates under consideration for Justice Dems or BNC.
The deadline to file as a candidate for the 2018 races in Ohio is February 7, 2018 (if running as a member of an established party) or May 7, 2018 (if running as an independent candidate). Here are the filing requirements – link. The date of the primary election in Ohio is May 8, 2018.
Because of the number of candidates, I’m going to do Ohio in 2 posts. In this first one, I describe the U.S. Senate race and the first 9 Congressional districts. In the second post, I will discuss the remaining Congressional districts and the governor’s race. Here’s what I’ve found about the various races:
United States Senators:. The Senators from Ohio are Sherrod Brown (D) and Rob Portman (R). Sherrod Brown is up for re-election in 2018. He has a very progressive voting record (Progressive Punch Crucial Lifetime Progressive Score = 96%) and generally opposes expansion of foreign wars and opposes free trade agreements, while supporting the restoration of Glass-Steagall, increased gun regulations and the ACA. He is not a co-sponsor for Bernie’s Senate bill for Medicare-for-All (S.1804), but has supported a separate bill to lower the age of Medicare eligibility to 55 - link. As of now, he has three Republican challengers - Melissa Ackison, Mike Gibbons and Josh Mandel. Melissa Ackison is co-owner of a surveying business. Mike Gibbons is an investment banker and a wealthy Republican donor. Josh Mandel is the State Treasurer in Ohio, who previously ran against Sherrod Brown but lost. All three of these Republican candidates are very conservative and all 3 want to repeal and replace Obamacare.
United States House of Representatives: Ohio is the seventh most populous state and has 16 United States House Representatives, 4 Democrats and 12 Republicans. Here we’ll discuss the first 9 of these Congressional districts.
OH-01: The incumbent is Steve Chabot, a very conservative Republican, who voted to repeal and replace Obamacare with the AHCA. He represents a district considered potentially competitive for Democrats and there are three Dems challenging him - Robert Barr, Samuel Ronan and Laura Ann Weaver. There is also one Independent running - Mike Goldschmidt. *Robert Barr is a rabbi. His website does not really provide any information about his positions, except that he is against the current Republican tax plan. Samuel Ronan is an Air Force veteran, a Bernie supporter and a former candidate for the DNC Chair position. He’s actually never held elected office before, but wanted to wrest control of the DNC from corporate interests and return it to the people. He didn’t win as Chair, but remains committed to a progressive agenda and is now running for Congress. He supports universal basic income, criminal justice reform, legalizing marijuana, universal healthcare, universal college education, etc. I didn’t find his position on minimum wage on his website, but I might have missed that. Although he seems like a very strong candidate, I also feel he has not fully investigated some of areas for which he has positions on his website. As an example, he states that China is our major trading partner. However, our trade with both Canada and Mexico is higher than our trade with China, perhaps not surprising since they are our border neighbors. He also supports GMOs. I’m a scientist and I understand that genetic engineering is not inherently bad. The problem with GMO comes not from the genetic modification (after all we eat DNA that is naturally contained in plants every day and a tiny amount of additional DNA does not make a difference). The problem comes when companies make plants that are resistant to toxic herbicides and then dose them with high levels of those herbicides, which we subsequently consume. Therefore, GMO plants are an issue that needs to be carefully considered. Ronan also supports the use of more Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Professors mainly aren’t in favor of this, because we feel it does not provide proper educational opportunities for students – link with details on problems of MOOCs. I say all this not to put down Ronan, who seems a good guy, but rather to point out that I’m not sure he has fully investigated all his positions and has all the relevant information (of course, that could also be true of other candidates as well). He recently announced that he is going to run as a progressive Republican, rather than a progressive Dem. Here is his website. Laura Ann Weaver is a dentist and an Air Force veteran who describes herself as “a Democrat, a Social Liberal, a Political Moderate, a Fiscal Conservative and a transgender woman”. She thinks single payer healthcare is the best option, but is willing to work on any plan that gives healthcare to all in a ‘bipartisan’ manner. The problem with this is the Republicans will not work with Dems to implement a good bipartisan program. Obamacare was a plan first developed by the conservative Heritage Foundation and enjoyed support of conservatives, until it was passed by the Democrats and became anathema to them. She opposes private prisons and right-to-work laws and supports strengthening unions. She is also opposed to Trump’s antagonizing of North Korea. She says on her website that “clinical research is done predominantly on adult males. Yet we know that women have differing symptoms and may react differently to treatment than men. Medical research needs to better address the needs of women.” This is pretty much a non-issue as the National Institutes of Health has mandated since 1993 that all clinical trials must include women and racial minorities, unless there is valid scientific justification for not including them (for instance, you can’t study prostate cancer in women). Here is Weaver’s webpage. Mike Goldschmidt is an independent candidate running on a single major issue, term limits for Congressional members. He has a quote from Newt Gingrich on his website, which makes me believe he has a pretty conservative outlook. Ronan appears to be the strongest progressive candidate in this race.
OH-02: The incumbent is Brad Wenstrup, an extremely conservative Republican, who voted to repeal and replace Obamacare. There are four Democrats challenging him - Richard Crosby, Mickey Edwards, Janet Everhard and Russ Hurley. There is also one Independent running - Steve Myers. *Richard Crosby is an attorney and former prosecutor for the city of Cincinnati. He supports unions, preserving and strengthening the ACA, lowering interest rates on student loans and fighting climate change. He wants to promote new employment by allowing new companies that hire local workers to defer payroll taxes for one year. He opposes mandatory minimum prison sentences. Here is Crosby’s website. This site seems to be the webpage for Mickey Edwards, but it is password protected and his Facebook page is unavailable. I am not sure he is running seriously. It is also not clear to me, if this Mickey Edwards is the same as the former Republican congressman from Oklahoma- Wikipedia link, who is a native of Cleveland, Ohio. That former Congressman Mickey Edwards was one of the three original founders of the conservative Heritage Foundation, so it would be a little unusual that he would run as a Democrat. Janet Everhard is a gynecologist and surgeon, who ran a write-in campaign against the incumbent (Brad Wenstrup) in 2016, but lost that race. Her main issue is healthcare, which she is passionate about providing to every single person. Her website though does not specifically state if she supports Medicare-for-All or another plan to provide healthcare to everyone. Russ Hurley is does not seem to have a formal campaign website, but here is his CrowdPAC site and here is his Facebook page. He supports legalizing marijuana, closing private prisons, instituting a living wage that is commensurate with CEO pay, building a high speed rail system, strengthening and expanding the ACA until single payer can be voted on (he didn’t say, but I assume he might support single payer as a long-term goal) and expanding wind and solar power. Steve Myers is an independent candidate who states that his “highest priority is to enact the socialwage, a minimum wage that rises with gross national productivity—what nationals make worldwide—and where working people are paid immediately after each shift of work rather than bi-weekly.” This website has more on his positions.
OH-03: The incumbent in this district is Joyce Beatty, a moderately progressive Democrat (Progressive Punch Crucial Lifetime Progressive Score = 87%). She is an original co-sponsor of Medicare-for-All (HR 676). She unfortunately has an association with one of the Awan brothers (Imran Awan). So far, she has no challengers.
OH-04: The incumbent Jim Jordan is a conservative Republican and a member and the Chair of the House Freedom Caucus. There are two Democrats challenging him - Janet Garrett and Andrew Mackey. Janet Garrett is a retired teacher who also served on the executive board of the teacher’s union. She supports eliminating tax loopholes that allow corporations to ship jobs overseas, expanding rural internet access, spending on infrastructure, raising the minimum wage ($15/hr by 2024), reinstating Glass-Steagall, establishing a national infrastructure bank to fund infrastructure projects, fighting the opioid crisis, protecting voting rights, strengthening public schools and reducing high-stakes testing, criminal justice reform including reducing private prisons and abolishing the death penalty, and auditing the Pentagon. Her foreign policy positions seem a bit hawkish to me. On college education, she wants to “increase federal student aid and encourage legislation that will cap loans payments based on income”. On healthcare, she wants to lower the age of eligibility for Medicare to 55 and provide a public option to the ACA for everyone else. Here is her webpage. Andrew Mackey does not seem to have a functioning website and I’m not sure he’s running seriously.
OH-05: The incumbent is an extremely conservative Republican Robert Latta. He voted to repeal and replace Obamacare. He supports repeal of the estate tax. He is facing a primary challenge by 2 Republicans - Bob Kreienkamp and Todd Wolfrum (who is the Van Wert County Commissioner). There are also two Dems challenging him - James Neu Jr. and John Michael Galbraith. James Neu Jr. is a worker for Chrysler at the Toledo Machining Plant. I didn’t find a campaign website for him, but here is his Facebook page. A quick look shows that he has posted about net neutrality, unions and income inequality. John Michael Galbraith is a financial advisor and managing partner at Galbraith Select, a company specializing in Florida real estate investments. His website is pretty vague on the policies he supports, but he wants to strengthen the ACA (no mention of Medicare-for-All), protect waterways from pollution and promote economic prosperity via bringing more manufacturing and tech jobs and fair trade agreements. I think Neu is the best candidate in this race.
OH-06: The incumbent is Bill Johnson, an extremely conservative Republican, who voted to repeal and replace Obamacare and who opposes same-sex marriage. So far, he has no challengers.
OH-07: The incumbent is Bob Gibbs, another extremely conservative Republican, who also voted to repeal the replace Obamacare. There is one Democrat challenging him - Ken Harbaugh. Ken Harbaugh is a former Navy pilot, who now works with Team Rubicon Global, an aid organization that has trained more than 45,000 military veterans to deploy to natural disasters in the U.S. and around the world. His website has little detail on his policies, but says he supports affordable healthcare (no mention of Medicare-for-All), bringing back good-paying jobs (but no details on how he will do that), fighting the opioid crisis (again no details), preserving secure retirement for seniors (presumably by protecting Social Security) and guaranteeing veteran’s benefits.
OH-08 The incumbent is a Republican Warren Davidson, who was just elected in 2016 to replace John Boehner. So far, he has a somewhat moderate voting record. Despite that, he is a member House Freedom Caucus and has voted to repeal and replace Obamacare. Right now, he has no challengers.
OH-09: The incumbent is a moderate Democrat Marcy Kaptur. Her Progressive Punch Crucial Lifetime Progressive Score is only 77%, probably because of her support for military spending. And she is not a member of the House Progressive Caucus. Despite the fact that she does not have the most progressive voting record overall, she has several strong progressive stances. She is a strong opponent of free trade agreements like the TPP. She opposed bailing out the banks in 2008 and supports reinstating Glass Steagall (in fact she introduced a bill to do just this). She is one of the few congress people to endorse Bernie for the 2016 primary. When Bernie did not win the nomination, she did not endorse Hillary Clinton. She is an original co-sponsor of HR 676 (Medicare-for-All). She has no challengers yet.

It is also not clear to me, if this Mickey Edwards is the same as the former Republican congressman from Oklahoma- Wikipedia link, who is a native of Cleveland, Ohio. That former Congressman Mickey Edwards was one of the three original founders of the conservative Heritage Foundation, so it would be a little unusual that he would run as a Democrat. Janet Everhard is a gynecologist and surgeon, who ran a write-in campaign against the incumbent (Brad Wenstrup) in 2016, but lost that race. Her main issue is healthcare, which she is passionate about providing to every single person. Her website though does not specifically state if she supports Medicare-for-All or another plan to provide healthcare to everyone. Russ Hurley is does not seem to have a formal campaign website, but here is his CrowdPAC site and here is his Facebook page. He supports legalizing marijuana, closing private prisons, instituting a living wage that is commensurate with CEO pay, building a high speed rail system, strengthening and expanding the ACA until single payer can be voted on (he didn’t say, but I assume he might support single payer as a long-term goal) and expanding wind and solar power. Steve Myers is an independent candidate who states that his “highest priority is to enact the socialwage, a minimum wage that rises with gross national productivity—what nationals make worldwide—and where working people are paid immediately after each shift of work rather than bi-weekly.” This website has more on his positions.
OH-03: The incumbent in this district is Joyce Beatty, a moderately progressive Democrat (Progressive Punch Crucial Lifetime Progressive Score = 87%). She is an original co-sponsor of Medicare-for-All (HR 676). She unfortunately has an association with one of the Awan brothers (Imran Awan). So far, she has no challengers.
OH-04: The incumbent Jim Jordan is a conservative Republican and a member and the Chair of the House Freedom Caucus. There are two Democrats challenging him - Janet Garrett and Andrew Mackey. Janet Garrett is a retired teacher who also served on the executive board of the teacher’s union. She supports eliminating tax loopholes that allow corporations to ship jobs overseas, expanding rural internet access, spending on infrastructure, raising the minimum wage ($15/hr by 2024), reinstating Glass-Steagall, establishing a national infrastructure bank to fund infrastructure projects, fighting the opioid crisis, protecting voting rights, strengthening public schools and reducing high-stakes testing, criminal justice reform including reducing private prisons and abolishing the death penalty, and auditing the Pentagon. Her foreign policy positions seem a bit hawkish to me. On college education, she wants to “increase federal student aid and encourage legislation that will cap loans payments based on income”. On healthcare, she wants to lower the age of eligibility for Medicare to 55 and provide a public option to the ACA for everyone else. Here is her webpage. Andrew Mackey does not seem to have a functioning website and I’m not sure he’s running seriously.
OH-05: The incumbent is an extremely conservative Republican Robert Latta. He voted to repeal and replace Obamacare. He supports repeal of the estate tax. He is facing a primary challenge by 2 Republicans - Bob Kreienkamp and Todd Wolfrum (who is the Van Wert County Commissioner). There are also two Dems challenging him - James Neu Jr. and John Michael Galbraith. James Neu Jr. is a worker for Chrysler at the Toledo Machining Plant. I didn’t find a campaign website for him, but here is his Facebook page. A quick look shows that he has posted about net neutrality, unions and income inequality. John Michael Galbraith is a financial advisor and managing partner at Galbraith Select, a company specializing in Florida real estate investments. His website is pretty vague on the policies he supports, but he wants to strengthen the ACA (no mention of Medicare-for-All), protect waterways from pollution and promote economic prosperity via bringing more manufacturing and tech jobs and fair trade agreements. I think Neu is the best candidate in this race.
OH-06: The incumbent is Bill Johnson, an extremely conservative Republican, who voted to repeal and replace Obamacare and who opposes same-sex marriage. So far, he has no challengers.
OH-07: The incumbent is Bob Gibbs, another extremely conservative Republican, who also voted to repeal the replace Obamacare. There is one Democrat challenging him - Ken Harbaugh. Ken Harbaugh is a former Navy pilot, who now works with Team Rubicon Global, an aid organization that has trained more than 45,000 military veterans to deploy to natural disasters in the U.S. and around the world. His website has little detail on his policies, but says he supports affordable healthcare (no mention of Medicare-for-All), bringing back good-paying jobs (but no details on how he will do that), fighting the opioid crisis (again no details), preserving secure retirement for seniors (presumably by protecting Social Security) and guaranteeing veteran’s benefits.
OH-08 The incumbent is a Republican Warren Davidson, who was just elected in 2016 to replace John Boehner. So far, he has a somewhat moderate voting record. Despite that, he is a member House Freedom Caucus and has voted to repeal and replace Obamacare. Right now, he has no challengers.
OH-09: The incumbent is a moderate Democrat Marcy Kaptur. Her Progressive Punch Crucial Lifetime Progressive Score is only 77%, probably because of her support for military spending. And she is not a member of the House Progressive Caucus. Despite the fact that she does not have the most progressive voting record overall, she has several strong progressive stances. She is a strong opponent of free trade agreements like the TPP. She opposed bailing out the banks in 2008 and supports reinstating Glass Steagall (in fact she introduced a bill to do just this). She is one of the few congress people to endorse Bernie for the 2016 primary. When Bernie did not win the nomination, she did not endorse Hillary Clinton. She is an original co-sponsor of HR 676 (Medicare-for-All). She has no challengers yet.

The Hair Dryer, Freedom’s Appliance
by Maria Teresa Hart via Master Feed : The Atlantic
URL: http://ift.tt/2wixiPo
I used to scandalize my friends with this confession: “I don’t own a hair dryer.”
It was as if I’d told them I ride a horse to work. But their surprise was justified: 90 percent of U.S. homes own a hair dryer. They come standard in most hotel rooms. The hair dryer is tangled up with the history of fashion, the evolution of women’s roles, and the development of gendered social spaces.
More From Our Partners - Pictures of Death - Why Geologists Think Glacial Mountains Look Like Sheep - How Wheelchair Accessibility Ramped Up
In the beginning, the hair dryer wasn’t a home appliance. In 1888, Alexandre-Ferdinand Godefroy debuted his “hair dressing device” in a French salon. It wasn’t pretty: His dryer was a clumsy, seated machine, resembling a vacuum cleaner—essentially a giant hose connected to a heat source. At the time, women wore their hair long and looped, or curled into elaborate updos. For formal occasions, they might have ribbons, feathers, or flowers woven into their locks. Godefroy’s invention aimed to speed up the labor involved with these creations. But his machine failed to circulate air effectively, so the time saved wasn’t significant. The prototype was far too unwieldy to become widespread anyway.
Hair dryers didn’t take off until the first hand-held units became available, in the early 1920s. These metal, gun-shaped models arrived right when women’s hairstyles were shifting from the mountainous piles of Gibson Girl curls that required dozens of bobby pins to the tidy, easier-to-shape bobs of flappers. It was a radical break from past styles. As Rachel Maines, a technology historian at Cornell University, explained to The New York Times, “Having clean, shiny, fluffy hair—that’s a 20th century thing.” This new trend was also happy news for the hair dryer. Dirty hair could hide in a pompadour, but a shorter do that hung free would reveal limp or stringy hair.
Early hand-held hair dryers were still difficult to use. Their metallic (often aluminum) casings made them hard to wield. Also, drying times were far longer than today’s norm, as the devices drew only 100 watts of electricity compared to the 2,000 watts of modern versions. That made them exhausting to use over the long periods of time required for drying. Some early versions had pedestals to give tired arms a rest. Nevertheless, these dryers were considered a marvel of convenience, marketed as having “loads of hot or cold air instantly. Just by pressing the handle button.”
The hand-held versions for the home were joined by hooded models for the salon. Made of metal and later of plastic, and applying an even, all-over heat, hooded dryers entered widespread use in 1930s. In the decades that followed, they became a defining trait of the salon scene.
This was an unsettled time for American women. First they joined the workforce during the war effort, in the 1940s. Later, they were driven back into the home. During these postwar years, the salon became a cherished second space for women outside the home. The task of “setting” hair into the molded hairdos popular in the day, such as Veronica Lake’s cascading S-shaped waves or Grace Kelly’s sculpted bob, required regular appointments at the salon, establishing it as a popular weekly meeting spot. The image of a row of women idly flipping through magazines under a hair dryer hood became a symbol of postwar prosperity and of women’s new leisure time.
In an effort to bring that salon cachet into the home, the bonnet hair dryer debuted in 1951. This model had a soft, shower cap-style headpiece that the user would attach to a motor via a hose. In a Sunbeam commercial from the 1960s, the bonnet dryer was advertised to be “so fast that it actually dries hair in an average of 22 minutes.” These models were also meant to mimic the salon experience: “Just select any one of four temperatures. Then, relax,” the commercial suggested. They came in little handled carrying cases that could be toted around, but typically the user would stay seated in a single spot while hot air circulated. Advertisements frequently showed models chatting on the phone, suggesting that salon-level socializing and the community it inspired wouldn’t be lost if women did their own grooming at home.
Another invention that sprang from hooded hair dryers was the “wave machine.” The hairstylist Marjorie Joyner, known for her talent in creating marcel waves, connected pot-roast rods to a dryer, and mechanized marcelling was born. Hair salons were racially segregated in these years, but the wave device became popular in both black and white salons alike. With this machine, Joyner appears to have become the first African-American woman to secure a patent.
In the 1960s and ’70s, the sexual revolution left its mark on fashion—and hair. The rigid gender divisions of the previous decades began to soften. Icons like the Beatles and the Monkees were wearing their hair longer in mod “mop tops,” and influencing other men to do the same. That helped spur the counterculture trend of long, hippie locks. Companies moved quickly to capitalize on this potential new hair-dryer market. As one Clairol ad said to its male reader: “Congratulations. You have more hair today than a year ago.” But then it explained to men that the “secret” to mastering this new look “isn’t just more hair. It’s cleaner hair, blown dry—to give it bulk and body it out.”
Hairstylists gained celebrity status in these decades, thanks to stylist-to-the-stars Vidal Sassoon and films like Shampoo, which starred Warren Beatty as a hunky hairdresser irresistible to his customers. Suddenly, a functional grooming tool had sex appeal. The stylist-as-Casanova persona can still be found today, in celebrity stylists like Harry Josh. Miranda Kerr promoted his signature dryer by blowing it across her décolletage during a photo shoot, treating it more like a seductive bottle of perfume than an appliance.
During the ’60s, plastics began to dominate consumer goods, and hair dryers were no exception. Once made from metal or occasionally Bakelite, now hair dryers joined a flood of “fantastic plastic” products facilitated by companies like DuPont and Dow Chemical. But apart from an alteration to its materials and the addition of various attachments and heat conductors, like ceramic and tourmaline, the hair dryer has changed very little since its birth. Writing for _Fast Company_in 2011, James Gaddy lamented the device’s boring uniformity, complaining that they “all look the same.” Gaddy denounced all models as little more than “a holding pen for the small motor-driven fan and heater inside.”
That style assessment isn’t wrong. But hair dryers have evolved significantly in one area: safety. Despite its harmless appearance in homes, the hair dryer has a dark legacy. For most of its history, the tool was unregulated, and its use could result in serious—sometimes fatal—electric shocks. In that respect, hair dryers weren’t all that different from arsenic powders, X-ray hair removal, and other cosmetic solutions with dire, even deadly, consequences.
It wasn’t until the 1970s that regulations were drafted to improve dryer safety. And only as recently as 1991 were these devices legally required to contain ground fault circuit interrupters, which greatly decrease the danger of high-voltage injury or death. Older models still resurface in the news for plunking into bathtubs and electrocuting their owners, as in the case of the young Palomera sisters (ages 7 and 9), who were cooling off in the tub when their old dryer dropped in.
Hair dryers weave in and out of public and private spaces, making them different from other grooming tools. Hair depilators and eyelash curlers remain hidden behind closed doors. But hair dryers began in public and continue to occupy public space. Some salons will even place a chair in their picture window, putting the hair-drying experience on full display and marketing it to passersby.
In the last decade, hair dryers have taken up public real estate anew thanks to an explosion of hair-dryingbars in urban areas that deal exclusively with the washing and drying of hair (no cuts or dying treatments). The company Drybar, one of the most popular, has more than 70 locations across the United States and Canada. Styles are modeled on the extremely coiffed looks paraded on the red carpets of award shows and on reality TV. These ultra-manicured hairdos are a status symbol akin to a handbag or diamond ring. Maintaining them requires a commitment of $40 to $50 per week on the impermanence of hairdos that one humid day can dismantle.
But the hair dryer may now be at a crossroads. In 2016, Dyson, the maker of vacuums, fans, and hand dryers, set out to remodeling the hair dryer. As it had done with its Airblade hand dryers, Dyson hopes to revolutionize the market, encouraging more women to take their hair back into their own hands. The company shifted the motor to the base of the dryer, making it smaller and supposedly improving drying time. Though many of Dyson’s changes are more aesthetic than functional, this is a market where looks matter.
At the same time, the fashion pendulum has begun a to swing away from high-polish, TV-ready looks toward a more relaxed, no-effort appearance. Celebrities like Alicia Keys have embraced the no-makeup look, and the #iwokeuplikethis movement has reinvigorated a fresher, less preened appearance. Hair might become less conforming and more free and breezy again—which could push hot air out of the public eye and back behind the bathroom door.
I finally succumbed and bought a hair dryer. I had spent years flying out the door with a damp head of hair, but I decided my soggy morning appearance was doing me a disservice. It communicated a certain young, relaxed attitude that went against the professional adult I wanted to become. Years later, I still feel awed that after 10 minutes of fanning a dryer around, my hair can be tamed. Now I see why ads for hair dryers were once laced with a million exclamation points, and showed women who were smitten over their new grooming gadgetry. As one reads, you can store your hair dryer away “or you can keep it out in the open and make a pet out of it.”

PELOSI to CHRIS WALLACE: ‘I am a master legislator’ -- CAN KELLY ‘TAME’ the White House zoo? -- SENIOR ADVISERS’ ‘casual access’ to Trump will continue -- JARROD AGEN promoted -- NEW NYT podcast -- B’DAY: Jim Rutenberg
by [email protected] (Daniel Lippman) via POLITICO - TOP Stories

Happy Sunday. SPOTTED last night having dinner at one big table at BLT Prime at the Trump hotel: President Donald Trump, Gen. John Kelly, Dina Powell and David McCormick, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Louise Linton, and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Hilary Geary Ross.
FIRST IN PLAYBOOK – TRUMP’S WEEK -- Monday: President Trump is presenting the Medal of Honor. ... Tuesday: He holds a small business event at the White House. ... Friday: Trump visits FEMA headquarters to get a briefing on the hurricane season. This week’s theme is the “American dream.”
GROUNDHOG DAY -- “As Trump steams, Senate Republicans consider new repeal effort,” by Burgess Everett, Josh Dawsey and Rachael Bade: “Senate Republicans’ party-line attempts to repeal Obamacare aren’t dead just yet — at least not if President Donald Trump has anything to say about it. Trump, increasingly impatient with the long-stalled repeal effort, met with three Senate Republicans about a new plan to roll back the health care law on Friday, signaling some lawmakers -- as well as the president -- are not ready to ditch their seven-year campaign promise.
“The group is trying to write legislation that could get 50 Republican votes, according to multiple administration and Capitol Hill sources. The proposal from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) would block grant federal health care funding to the states and keep much of Obamacare’s tax regime. White House officials also met with House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) to brainstorm how to make the idea palatable to conservatives, according to two sources familiar with the meeting.” http://politi.co/2tNTxf7
-- ONE CONSERVATIVE said to us the other day that Obamacare is a tax bill -- even the Supreme Court said so. So keeping the taxes would be akin to keeping the entire law, for many conservatives.
ON THE PRESIDENT’S MIND -- yesterday at 12:19 p.m.: “After seven years of‘talking’ Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare!” … at 12:27 p.m.: “If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!” … at 1:04 p.m.:“U.S. Stock Market up almost 20% since Election!” …
… at 4:36 p.m.: “Unless the Republican Senators are total quitters, Repeal & Replace is not dead! Demand another vote before voting on any other bill!” … at 7:15 p.m.: “I love reading about all of the ‘geniuses’ who were so instrumental in my election success. Problem is, most don’t exist. #Fake News! MAGA” … at 7:29 p.m.: “I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet…” … at 7:35 p.m.: “...they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk. We will no longer allow this to continue. China could easily solve this problem!” … at 7:37 a.m.: “Don’t give up Republican Senators, the World is watching: Repeal & Replace...and go to 51 votes (nuke option), get Cross State Lines & more.”
KELLYANNE CONWAY on “FOX NEWS SUNDAY”: “He’s going to make that decision this week [whether to end cost sharing reduction payments], and that’s a decision that only he can make.” http://politi.co/2uOlPYq
-- A FEW QUICK NOTES: Every permutation of repeal and replace got fewer than 50 votes, so ancillary issues -- like being able to buy insurance across state lines -- is besides the point at this moment. IF TRUMP follows through on his threat to end the employer contribution for members of Congress, that would be a big deal, and could strip lawmakers of one of the only appealing benefits of their job. ALSO: Congress has to fund the government at the end of September and lift the debt ceiling shortly after that. Not passing anything until Obamacare is repealed and replaced is not necessarily a realistic position.
-- @burgessev: “Historically, conservatives use filibuster to block progressive legislation. Take this away and the next D Washington has few limits.”
… AND THIS: “Lawsuits could force feds to pay Obamacare insurers,” by Paul Demko: “A pending court decision could force the Trump administration to pump billions of dollars into Obamacare insurers, even as the president threatens to let the health care law ‘implode.’ Health insurers have filed nearly two dozen lawsuits claiming the government owes them payments from a program meant to blunt their losses in the Obamacare marketplaces. That raises the prospect that the Trump administration will have to bankroll a program the GOP has pilloried as an insurer bailout.” http://politi.co/2vbn2LD
NEW CBS NEWS NATION TRACKER POLL -- “Six months in, the latest CBS News Nation Tracker study shows President Donald Trump’s strongest backers like seeing him fight his chosen opponents: they want the President to call out those he believes disloyal, fight with the mainstream media, and they’re the only group among the segments in this study where a majority wants the President to do more tweeting. But what they applaud seems precisely what most others dislike, and that is costing the President potential support, even as many give him credit for an improving economy.”
PETER BAKER: “Trump Tries to Regroup as the West Wing Battles Itself”: “President Trump enters a new phase of his presidency on Monday with a new chief of staff but an old set of challenges as he seeks to get back on course after enduring one of the worst weeks that any modern occupant of the Oval Office has experienced in his inaugural year in power. With his poll numbers at historic lows, his legislative agenda stalled and his advisers busy plotting against one another, Mr. Trump hoped to regain momentum by pushing out his top aide, Reince Priebus, and installing a retired four-star Marine general, John F. Kelly, to take command. But it is far from certain that the move will be enough to tame a dysfunctional White House.
“The shake-up followed a week that saw the bombastic, with-me-or-against-me president defied as never before by Washington and its institutions, including Republicans in Congress, his own attorney general, the uniformed military leadership, police officers and even the Boy Scouts. No longer daunted by a president with a Twitter account that he uses like a Gatling gun, members of his own party made clear that they were increasingly willing to stand against him on issues like health care and Russia. The setbacks came against the backdrop of a West Wing at war with itself, egged on by a president who thrives on conflict and chaos. Mr. Kelly, who had been serving as secretary of homeland security, brings a career of decisive leadership to his new assignment as White House chief of staff. But he confronts multiple power centers among presidential aides, all with independent lines to the man in the Oval Office who resists the discipline and structure favored by generals.” http://nyti.ms/2wbgNog
THE KELLY LOOKAHEADS …
WAPO’S PHIL RUCKER, BOB COSTA and DAN BALZ: “Trump enlists Kelly to enforce order, but can the ‘zoo’ be tamed?”: “When Kelly made the rounds on Capitol Hill before his nomination hearings in January, he did not know Trump very well and asked people there to share stories about the president-elect. He wanted to know how Trump made decisions. Told that Trump relished competing power centers around him, Kelly grimaced and said nothing. ...
“Trump’s transition documents included a lengthy memo about White House structure, based on past administrations. ‘They didn’t follow the product at all,’ said a person with direct knowledge of what transpired as Trump was setting up his administration. ‘They did it instinctively … The president-elect didn’t want to say no to anybody.’ The result was the White House that now exists, populated by advisers with competing ideologies that reflect an administration that is an amalgam of populist nationalists, hard-line conservatives and establishment Republicans — and a few Democrats. …
“The environment is poised to change in the Kelly era. The new chief of staff is expected to have full control over the Oval Office and schedule, officials said. Trusted aides such as Hope Hicks, Dan Scavino and Keith Schiller -- as well as senior advisers such as Kushner, Bannon and Conway -- will continue to have casual access to the president.” http://wapo.st/2tNL0cg
ANDREW RESTUCCIA, BRYAN BENDER and JOSH DAWSEY: “Kelly’s first task: Stabilize the West Wing: The no-nonsense retired Marine Corps general will soon be thrust into the center of the West Wing soap opera”: “When he officially becomes chief of staff on Monday, Kelly, a no-nonsense retired Marine Corps general, will be thrust into the center of the West Wing soap opera, where President Donald Trump’s policy agenda regularly gets preempted by feuding advisers and headline-grabbing scandals. ... ‘I think this is the best and last shot,’ said one person close to Kelly. ‘This is it.’ ...
“Kelly wants to have more of a pecking order among the staff and a more ‘traditional’ approach, one White House official said. But others in the White House said it’s too early to make predictions. ‘Everything is up in the air. Anyone who tells you they know anything is lying,’ a White House official said. ... Kelly has built relationships with several top White House aides in recent months, including chief strategist Steve Bannon and senior adviser Stephen Miller, who have played a central role in Trump’s immigration crackdown.
“Kelly has nonetheless expressed frustration about the White House to friends and associates, complaining about the slow pace of hiring and bristling at having to answer to lower-level aides, according to one person who has spoken to him and another person familiar with the tension. ... Asked to name any similarities between the two men, the person said, ‘They’re both Catholic, but that’s probably about it.’ ... Kelly is expected to make his first staff change at the White House on Monday, when he’ll bring in Kirstjen Nielsen, his chief of staff at DHS.” http://politi.co/2tTD0KV
THE NEVER ENDING CAMPAIGN -- “How 2018 became the new 2020,” by Gabe Debenedetti: “The 2020 Democratic presidential road show is already underway. And 2018 is beginning to look like the dress rehearsal. Top contenders are making endorsements, picking sides in party primaries and aggressively working the fundraising circuit on behalf of 2018 candidates, all the while building their own name recognition. With many of presidential prospects on the ballot themselves next year, potential challengers to Donald Trump are also stockpiling cash to help run up their re-election margins to burnish their stature for the big election on the horizon.
“The early focus on the midterms is a marked departure from previous practice, and a further acceleration of the presidential campaign cycle. Prior to the 2016 presidential primary season, for example, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders largely stayed off the campaign trail and out of elections until late 2014 — roughly six months before they officially announced their campaigns. But with a historically large presidential field taking shape, more than a dozen prominent Democrats — including governors like Terry McAuliffe and Steve Bullock, and senators like Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, and Kamala Harris — have recognized the need to distinguish themselves from the crowd. And they are already working hard to advance their brand while helping to reinvigorate the dilapidated party infrastructure in advance of the midterm elections.” http://politi.co/2viPoo7
TRUMP is at his Virginia golf resort this morning, per the pool.
-- @markknoller: “By my count, it’s his 36th visit to one of his golf clubs, 15th time at the one in Sterling, VA - since taking office.”
VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE is in Tallinn, Estonia. Pence chief of staff Nick Ayers alerted staff and reporters on the trip that Jarrod Agen, communications director, had been promoted to deputy chief of staff, according to pooler Ashley Parker of the Washington Post.
IN MOSCOW … -- “The Kremlin is done betting on Trump and planning how to strike back against U.S. sanctions,” by WaPo’s Andrew Roth in Moscow: “Regardless of whether the Kremlin believes its own denials of interfering in the 2016 elections, there is one undeniable truth: Russia is now Washington’s greatest political foe. Understanding that President Trump is ‘tied hand and foot,’ as one foreign policy hawk here put it, Moscow is weighing options for retaliation.
“After a dalliance on the Trump train, Russia is once again channeling the ruthless realism that drives its political id, and embracing its role as antihero. ‘Okay, you think we’re bad guys, we’re going to be bad guys, and we’ll see whether you like it or not,’ said Konstantin Eggert, a television political commentator, describing the Kremlin thinking.” http://wapo.st/2tUhg1k
RUSSIAN DEPUTY FOREIGN MINISTER SERGEI RYABKOV on potential retaliation as because of new U.S. sanctions to ABC’S MARTHA RADDATZ: “If the U.S. side decides to move further towards further deterioration we will answer, we will respond in kind. We will mirror this. … “I can assure you that different options are on the table and consideration is being given to all sorts of things, both symmetrical or asymmetrical to use a very popular word in the world of diplomacy.”
FOR YOUR RADAR -- AP: “U.S. bombers fly over South Korea after North’s 2nd ICBM test”: “The United States flew two supersonic bombers over the Korean Peninsula on Sunday in a show of force against North Korea following the country’s latest intercontinental ballistic missile test. The U.S. also said it conducted a successful test of a missile defense system located in Alaska. The B-1 bombers were escorted by South Korean fighter jets as they performed a low-pass over an air base near the South Korean capital of Seoul before returning to Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, the U.S. Pacific Air Forces said in a statement. …
“‘North Korea remains the most urgent threat to regional stability,’ said Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy, Pacific Air Forces commander. “Diplomacy remains the lead. However, we have a responsibility to our allies and our nation to showcase our unwavering commitment while planning for the worst-case scenario.’ ‘If called upon, we are ready to respond with rapid, lethal, and overwhelming force at a time and place of our choosing,’ O’Shaughnessy said.” http://bit.ly/2hcLebc
SUNDAY BEST …
-- HOUSE MINORITY LEADER NANCY PELOSI defends her leadership to CHRIS WALLACE on “FOX NEWS SUNDAY” -- “I am a master legislator. I know the budget to the nth degree. I know the motivation of people I respect the people who are in Congress. I think this is a great moment for those of us who understand what is at stake with the Affordable Care Act – what our possibilities are in terms of working together with the Republicans as has been our experience in the past. So I feel very confident about the support I have in my caucus. I have never not been opposed within my caucus.”
--PELOSI ON JOHN KELLY: “I look forward to working with General Kelly. I’ve worked with him as Secretary Kelly at the Department of Homeland Security. So I will be speaking with him today. We look forward to working together. It’s a very important position – the President’s chief of staff to the President of the United States. And it has to be recognized that he is the chief of staff.”
-- HHS SECRETARY TOM PRICE talks with CHUCK TODD on NBC’S “MEET THE PRESS: TODD: “So if they come up with a fix that helps, essentially gives some certainty to the insurance companies to go into rural markets, are you then going to implement the Affordable Care Act as it was meant to be, including encouraging people to sign up, encouraging enrollment, encouraging Medicaid expansion?” PRICE: “Well, our, as I said, our responsibility is to follow the law and again we take that responsibility very seriously and we will continue to do so. But remember that the current law right now is failing the American people. As I mentioned, I think, we’ve got 40 counties across this – 40 counties that will no longer have any insurance company next year.
“That’s not a choice for anybody. You’ve got a third of the counties right now that only have one insurance company providing coverage. That’s not a choice for anybody. You’ve got premiums that are up, deductibles that are up, people having that insurance card and no care, got insurers fleeing the market. 83 insurance companies fled the health insurance market last year. That’s before this administration came in. This system is imploding upon itself and that's what we’re trying to care of. That’s what the president has said. That’s why we need repeal and replace.”
-- PRICE to ABC’S MARTHA RADDATZ on “THIS WEEK” -- TRUMP DOESN’T REALLY WANT TO LET OBAMACARE EXPLODE: RADDATZ: “But he says... -- let it -- let Obamacare implode, then deal. What does that mean?” PRICE: “Well, I -- again, I think what that does is punctuate the seriousness with which he understands the American people are having to deal with the current situation.”
-- OMB DIRECTOR MICK MULVANEY talks with CNN’S JAKE TAPPER on “STATE OF THE UNION” -- TAPPER: “When General Kelly is sworn in on Monday as White House chief of staff, will all staff members immediately begin reporting to him?” MULVANEY: “I don’t know. I answer to the chief of staff. And I will continue to do that. The Office of Management and Budget actually reports directly to the chief of staff. Obviously, we answer to the president, as everybody does in the West Wing. But, as far as I know, my reporting doesn’t change, nor do I have any reason for it to change. So, we will continue to do our business at OMB the same way we did last week. I think we’re doing some good work, and look forward to continuing that under General Kelly’s leadership.”
FUN -- NYT’s NEW PODCAST – Per The Times: “[W]e published the first episode of ‘The New Washington,’ a new limited-run politics podcast that takes you inside Trump’s Washington. Each episode of ‘The New Washington,’ which airs once a week and will run through the fall, features interviews with politicians and Washington insiders, along with insight, analysis and perspective from some of The Times’s most intrepid reporters. ... In the introductory episode, Michael Barbaro talks with Carl Hulse about the most interesting and important characters in Washington today and what he’s learned from his decades covering these figures -- and sharing a home, and in one case a barber, with them.” http://nyti.ms/2u8FbFR
WAPO’S ROXANNE ROBERTS in REHOBOTH BEACH, DEL. -- “Joe Biden still wants to be president. Can his family endure one last campaign?”http://wapo.st/2u9e2CH
HOMESTATE POLITICS -- “Lisa Murkowski walked a tightrope in Alaska when she voted ‘no’ on Obamacare repeal,” by the L.A. Times’ Kyle Hopkins in Anchorage: “The chairman of the Alaska Republican Party says phones at the state GOP office have been ringing off the hook with Republicans angry or confused by Murkowski’s votes. To some moderates, independents and Democrats, she is a folk hero. Supporters planned a ‘Stay Strong Lisa’ rally on Saturday in Anchorage.” http://lat.ms/2viM38A
ELECTION WATCH -- “Hackers descend on Las Vegas to expose voting machine flaws,” by Kevin Collier in Las Vegas: “Election officials and voting machine manufacturers insist that the rites of American democracy are safe from hackers. But people like Carten Schurman need just a few minutes to raise doubts about that claim. Schurman, a professor of computer science at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, used a laptop’s Wi-Fi connection Friday to gain access to the type of voting machine that Fairfax County, Virginia, used until just two years ago. Nearby, other would-be hackers took turns trying to poke into a simulated election computer network resembling the one used by Cook County, Illinois.
“Elsewhere, a gaggle of hackers went to work on a model still used in parts of seven states, as well as all of the state of Nevada. Though the device was supposedly wiped before it was sold by the government at auction, the hackers were able to uncover the results the machine tallied in 2002. They were among the hundreds of cybersecurity experts who descended on ‘Voting Village,’ one of the most talked-about features of the annual DEF CON hacker conference. In a cramped conference room, they took turns over three days cracking into 10 examples of voting machines and voter registration systems — a reminder, they say, of the risks awaiting upcoming U.S. elections.” http://politi.co/2eYkwSM
BONUS GREAT WEEKEND READS, curated by Daniel Lippman, filing from the Deutsche Bahn ICE train from Munich to Berlin, where he’s attending the American Council of Germany’s American-German Young Leaders Conference:
--“Scott Pruitt’s Crimes Against Nature,” by Jeff Goodell in Rolling Stone: “Trump’s EPA chief is gutting the agency, defunding science and serving the fossil-fuel industry.” http://rol.st/2uCAUhf
--“Patagonia’s Big Business of #Resist,” by Abe Streep in Outside Magazine: “The iconic brand has long been the conscience of the outdoor industry, forsaking hefty profits to do the right thing. Now the company is going to war against the Trump administration over protections for public land in a bid to become a serious political player—which happens to be very good for sales.” http://bit.ly/2h7eQGN (h/t Longreads.com)
--“Strippers, Insane Asylums, Assassination, and Termites: Inside the Insane History of the World’s Greatest White House Replica,” by The Daily Beast’s Will O’Connor in Baton Rouge: “Governor Huey Long was so anxious to get to the White House that he built his own in Baton Rouge.

--“Slaves of Isis: the long walk of the Yazidi women,” by Cathy Otten in The Guardian: “When Isis rounded up Yazidi women and girls in Iraq to use as slaves, the captives drew on their collective memory of past oppressions – and a powerful will to survive.” http://bit.ly/2v83KXp
--“Kristin Beck: A Navy SEAL in Transition,” by Devin Friedman in the Nov. 2015 issue of GQ: “Back when she was a member of SEAL Team 6—Kristin Beck liked to grow her beard real long. But as disguises go, that was nothing compared with the life she lived as a man. What’s it take, and how does it feel, for a paragon of masculinity to travel so far to find her true self?” http://bit.ly/2v2g9fN (h/t Longform.org)
--“Naked Truths: Who are we without our clothes?” by Jamie Lauren Keiles in Racked -- per Longreads’ description: “Keiles spends a week at a naturist camp to learn ‘why people get naked.’ As she exercises, sun tans, and square dances her way through a week garbed for the most part only in shoes, she gets stripped not only of inhibitions around her own body, but also of notions around naturist intent, learning that most enthusiasts take off their clothes not for sexual reasons, but simply to feel free.” http://bit.ly/2vbWRVU
--“Instagram is Pushing Restaurants to be Kitschy, Colorful, and Irresistible to Photographers,” by The Verge’s Casey Newton: “[S]ome entrepreneurs are taking the idea a step further, designing their physical spaces in the hopes of inspiring the maximum number of photos. They’re commissioning neon signs bearing modestly sly double entendres, painting elaborate murals of tropical wildlife, and embedding floor tiles with branded greetings — all in the hopes that their guests will post them.” http://bit.ly/2v3C06j
--“Afghanistan’s Young Liberal Elites Challenge the Taliban,” by Susanne Koelbl in Der Spiegel: “A young, liberal elite has emerged in Kabul, including many women. It is taking a stand against the Taliban’s atrocities in the form of political and artistic initiatives and wants to put an end to Afghanistan’s culture of violence.” http://bit.ly/2v1XjWn
--“Tough Talk,” by Steve Kolowich in the Chronicle of Higher Ed: “A black philosopher at Texas A&M thought forcing a public discussion about race and violence was his job. Turns out people didn’t want to hear it.” http://bit.ly/2h6YCxB (h/t Longreads.com)

2017.05.22 19:11 badpauly 5-22: Last Week Notable Insider Buys

These are insider buys of $10K or more reported to the SEC in the last 7 days. The SEC defines an insider as any officer, director or 10% shareholder. It is not illegal for these people to buy or sell their own shares. In fact, since most of them get paid in stock options, it is expected. However, it is illegal for them to trade on inside information that has not been made public. So for example if there are drug trial results that are bad and not public, insiders cannot dump shares. That said, many people have observed that insiders - in general - seem to have a good track record at timing their purchases.

2017.03.30 04:32 autotldr Oscars Error Won’t Cost Accounting Firm Its Job

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 24%.
Photo The spectacular best picture mix-up at this year's Oscars was a humiliating moment for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, and especially the accounting firm PwC - but it will not cost the firm its prized client.
In a letter to academy members on Wednesday, the group's president, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, said the organization's board of governors had decided to continue working with PwC despite being, she wrote, "Unsparing in our assessment that the mistake made by representatives of the firm was unacceptable."
She said that after spending a month reviewing the academy's deep relationship with PwC - the firm, previously known as PricewaterhouseCoopers, also does the academy's audits and taxes - the board of governors voted to keep PwC, with new protocols in place that included adding a third "Balloting leader" to the Oscars team, instituting rehearsals, banning electronic gadgets and increasing oversight by PwC's United States chairman.
PwC has tabulated the academy's Oscar votes more or less seamlessly for the past 83 years, with its Oscars accountants proudly strutting down the red carpet before each ceremony, toting sleek leather briefcases containing the winners' envelopes.
Standing before some 33 million television viewers, a clearly flummoxed Mr. Beatty showed the paper to Ms. Dunaway, who triumphantly read out, "La La Land!" For reasons unknown, as long minutes passed and the joyous "La La" team rushed the stage, neither Mr. Cullinan, a partner at PwC, nor his colleague, Martha Ruiz, moved to fix the enormous error.
Soon after the ceremony, the academy announced that neither Mr. Cullinan, who had been on his smartphone and tweeting right before the mix-up, nor Ms. Ruiz would return to the Oscars.

2017.02.28 14:00 autotldr PWC Envelope Handler Was Tweeting Backstage Minutes Before Oscar Gaffe

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 57%.
Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP. Brian Cullinan, one of the two PriceWaterhouseCoopers partners who handled the Oscar envelopes on Sunday night, was tweeting photos from backstage minutes before he handed Warren Beatty the wrong Best Picture envelope.
It turns out that the mistake may have been made because Cullinan, a managing partner at the firm and one of the accountants tasked with making sure the right names get read out on Oscar night, was busy tweeting about the show instead of carefully overseeing the envelopes, according to two knowledgeable insiders.
Three minutes before the fateful hand-off, Cullinan took a photo of Emma Stone clasping the gold statue she picked up for "La La Land.".
Moments later, Beatty, who was presenting Best Picture, looked visibly puzzled as he opened the envelope, handing it to co-presenter Faye Dunaway to make sense of things.
In an earlier interview, Tim Ryan, U.S. chairman and senior partner of PWC, told Variety that Cullinan pulled from the wrong pile.
A spokesperson for PwC did not respond to a request for comment on Cullinan's tweeting.

2017.02.28 12:42 autotldr PwC: 'We failed the Academy' in best picture mess up

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 78%.
In a statement released Monday evening, the firm confirmed that PwC managing partner Brian Cullinan "Mistakenly handed the back-up envelope for Actress in a Leading Role instead of the envelope for Best Picture to presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway."
"Moonlight" was eventually crowned best picture winner.
The social media post came just minutes before Dunaway and Beatty were inadvertently given the envelope containing the already announced best actress results.
Back in 1964, Sammy Davis Jr. was handed the wrong envelope when presenting the best musical score category and accidentally announced the winner for original musical score.
After the envelopes are stuffed with the winners' names, they are sealed by the only two people who know the results ahead of the ceremony - in this case, Ruiz and Cullinan.
A 2013 Vanity Fair story recalled a time when Sharon Stone and Quincy Jones were tasked with presenting two awards back-to-back but accidentally gave the second envelope to the first winner.

MOVIE GUIDE
ALLIED – In this WWII spy thriller, Canadian airman Max Vatan (Brad Pitt) and French Resistance operative Marianne Beauséjour (Marion Cotillard) pose as a married couple for a dangerous mission in Casablanca.

ALMOST CHRISTMAS – A widower asks his family -- which includes his sassy sister-in-law and four adult children as well as the latter's spouses and kids -- to join him for their first Christmas since his wife passed away. However, having all of them under one roof leads to a number of personal confrontations as secrets are revealed and marriages are tested.
ARRIVAL - Denis Villeneuve directed this science-fiction suspense film about Earth's response to a possible alien invasion. After extraterrestrial spacecraft plant themselves at various locations around the globe, a linguist and a theoretical physicist must find a way to communicate with the mysterious visitors in order to learn what they want and whether they pose a threat to humanity.
BAD SANTA 2 - Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie teams up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus, to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve.
DOCTOR STRANGE - After his career is destroyed, a brilliant but arrogant surgeon gets a new lease on life when a sorcerer takes him under his wing and trains him to defend the world against evil.
THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN - A precocious, narcissistic high schooler named Nadine is horrified when her best friend starts dating her impossibly perfect brother. Soon, she falls into a downward spiral that forces her to reflect on her cruel, self-centered behavior.
FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM - This spin-off of the Harry Potter franchise jumps back in time to explore the wizarding world of 1926 New York, which is being threatened by both mystical acts of destruction and a group of extremist No-Majs (the American term for Muggles, i.e. those unable to use magic). Author Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives in the city as part of a global study of fantastic beasts, but he gets caught up in this conflict when some of the magical creatures in his care are accidentally released.
HACKSAW RIDGE - A conscientious objector who refused to take a life or even carry a weapon, Doss was eventually awarded the Medal of Honor for saving the lives of 75 soldiers on the battlefields of Okinawa.
HARRY & SNOWMAN - Dutch immigrant Harry deLayer immigrated to the States after World War II. One snowy day, he visited a Pennsylvania horse auction, hoping to purchase a cheap lesson horse. By the time he arrived, the auction was over, and the only remaining horses were loaded on a slaughter truck. One, a gray plow horse, caught Harry's eye. He bought the horse for $80 and named him Snowman. In less than two years, Harry & Snowman went on to win the triple crown of show jumping, beating the nation's blue bloods. They were famous for their day and traveled around the world together. Their chance meeting at a Pennsylvania horse auction saved them both and crafted a friendship that lasted a lifetime. Eighty-six year old Harry tells their Cinderella love story firsthand, as he continues to train on today's show jumping circuit.
INCARNATE -An unconventional exorcist (Aaron Eckhart) must use his psychic abilities to do battle with a malevolent demon who's taken over an innocent 11-year-old boy (David Mazouz). But he discovers he's up against a more formidable foe than he anticipated when it's revealed that the same malicious entity previously murdered his wife and child. Now he's in a race against time to defeat his worst enemy before it unleashes its evil wrath upon the entire world.
INFERNO - Tom Hanks reprises his role as Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon in director Ron Howard and screenwriter David Koepp's adaptation of author Dan Brown's bestselling novel Inferno, which finds Langdon teaming up with Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) in a race against time to foil a devastating global pandemic plot by using Dante's The Divine Comedy as their tool to prevent a cataclysmic event..
LOVING - The latest from writer-director Jeff Nichols (Mud), Loving is an exquisitely crafted and deeply moving film about real-life couple Mildred and Richard Loving. Mildred (Ruth Negga), a black woman from Virginia, was just 11 years old when she first met the love of her life, a white man named Richard (Joel Edgerton). Near the end of high school, their friendship turns romantic, and the two decide to quietly wed in Washington, D.C. When Virginia police receive an anonymous tip that the Lovings are violating Virginia's Racial Integrity Act of 1924, they raid their household, sending the couple on a courageous nine-year journey to the Supreme Court, where they argue for the rights of interracial couples.
MOANA - Young navigator Moana (voice of Auli'i Cravalho), the daughter of a Polynesian tribal chief, is chosen to find a precious artifact that could save her people. She teams with demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson) to locate a legendary island, and together the pair explores fantastical lands and encounter incredible sea creatures in this animated adventure from Disney.
MOONLIGHT - Moonlight is a tender, breathtaking portrait of a young, gay black man coming of age in 1980s Miami. Told with great ambition and verve, the film unfolds in three vividly imagined chapters, with different actors portraying the protagonist, Chiron, at various points of his life. With his mother (Naomie Harris) battling drug addiction, young Chiron forms a close bond with a compassionate dealer (Mahershala Ali) and his partner (Janelle Monáe). In the following chapters, we see how Chiron's relationships with these figures, as well as his relationship with a close childhood friend, shape who he becomes. The long-awaited sophomore feature from Barry Jenkins (Medicine for Melancholy), Moonlight is an adaptation of Tarell Alvin McCraney's semi-autobiographical play In Moonlight Black Boys Look Blue.
RULES DON’T APPLY - From legendary Academy-Award winning director Warren Beatty, comes RULES DON'T APPLY. Blending equal measures of humor and heart, this is the love story of an aspiring actress, her determined driver and the eccentric billionaire who they work for.
SHUT IN - In this icy drama, a widowed child psychologist (Naomi Watts) holed up in New England with her disabled son learns that one of her clients, a young boy (Jacob Tremblay), has disappeared. When the search for the child proves fruitless, she becomes consumed with the thought that his ghost is haunting her.
TROLLS - After a forest tribe of cotton-candy colored, shockheaded Trolls discover they're the new favorite gourmet treat for King Gristle (John Cleese), the unlikely duo of bubbly Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and worrywart Branch (Justin Timberlake) must rescue their friends from the Chef (Christine Baranski) in this animated fantasy inspired by Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam's collectible dolls.

2016.11.11 10:19 autotldr Leonard Cohen, singer-songwriter extraordinaire, dead at 82

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 77%.
In 1988, still in his fifties, Leonard Cohen sang that "I ache in the places where I used to play" and suggested that he was just getting by.
His 1967 debut, "Songs of Leonard Cohen," connected deeply with a generation of listeners who heard its sparse meditations as an autumnal respite from Summer of Love psychedelia.
Artists ranging from James Taylor to Willie Nelson covered his songs, and in 1971, the great filmmaker Robert Altman used three Cohen originals from the debut album - "The Stranger Song," "Sisters of Mercy" and "Winter Lady" - to underline key scenes amid the gray skies and endless snowfall in his classic Western, "McCabe and Mrs. Miller." The wounded mutterings of McCabe, played by Warren Beatty, about his relationship with his business partner, Mrs. Miller, sound like they could've come from one of Cohen's characters: "If just one time you could be sweet without money to it."
Cale once directed the attention of a visitor in his old Greenwich Village apartment to a fax machine, where page upon page of "Hallelujah" had once spewed when the singer asked Cohen if he had any more words for the song.
A few years later, it was discovered that Cohen had been robbed of more than $5 million by his longtime manager, a setback that ignited a flurry of work that would close Cohen's career.
As Cohen recently explained, "Hineni, hineni" is also an invocation sung at Rosh Hashanah, which means "a willingness to serve." Cohen served well.

2016.02.18 10:04 montypython22 [Better Know a Director] The Films of Elaine May

Audience member: Can you talk a bit about the difficulty being a woman director?
Elaine May: That’s a really good question. That’s part of the difficulty when I was making my first movie, A New Leaf. Walter Matthau—whom, incidentally, I came to love on the set—would call me Mrs. Hitler, among other nasty things. And when I started out, I didn’t want to frighten anyone, so everyone initially got the impression, “Oh wow, well, she’s a nice girl. What is this big thing about?” The thing is, of course, I wasn’t a nice girl. And when they found this out, they hated me all the more. And I think that’s what really happens. It’s not that we’re women. It’s that as a woman, people think I should show that I’m a nice person. I’m not supposed to be the one to be feared. But the truth is: I’m not one of those nice women. And in the end, when it comes down to it, you’ll play just as rotten as any guy when you fight hard to get your way, to get your story the way you want it to be. So I think the real trick is for women starting out as directors is they should start out tough. They typically don’t start out tough. They start by saying, “Don’t be afraid of me. I’m only a woman.” But they’re not only women, they’re just as tough as guys. In that way I think that’s why I had so much trouble with my movies.
Q&A session with Elaine May and Mike Nichols, 2006, Full interview here
INTRODUCTION
Circumstance and history has treated a lot of cinema’s best directors pretty shittily, but the treatment of Elaine May takes the cake. In a career stretching nearly 60 years, she has only made 4 movies. (And not because she wanted to, like a Tati.) Of these, 3 were relentlessly tinkered with, cut by ill-adivsed producers, and released to dismal box-office figures and critical reception. (Only Heartbreak Kid was released with relatively few cuts, but even so, May was contractually beholden to the Neil Simon script and was not allowed to deviate from it.) For all that she’s done for Hollywood studios—working as an uncredited “script doctor” on movies like Tootsie and Heaven Can Wait, essentially saving them from disastrous production limbos—and for all of her contributions to pop-culture in general—her era-defining New York intellectual comedy act with Mike Nichols of the late 50s and early 60s—you would think she’d be recognized and respected for her immense talent by Hollywood. Alas, like the cinemasters Welles and Von Stroheim, this was not the case when May was actively working. The hard-working May has had to march to the step of Hollywood’s pecuniary mandates to such a demeaning degree that it should make any self-respecting person’s blood boil once they read the behind-the-scenes chicanery that has marred her oeuvre. The fatalistic paranoia, desperation, and anger the titular Mikey and Nicky feel isn’t far removed from Elaine May’s actual sentiments, as she saw her films butchered in form and botched in release to degrees that must have been soul-crushing.
But even with her limited output, May still manages to stake out a claim for herself as one of cinema’s most fascinating and sharpest minds. We hope to use this thread to make the case for Elaine May’s fascinating career through an extended look at four of her movies.
A NEW LEAF (1971)
Even in its butchered form, Elaine May's neo-screwball A New Leaf shines as a sublime comedy. With two equally-contemptable-equally-lovable leads (snobbish and privileged Walter Matthau, dumpy and clumsy Elaine May), a witty screenplay (written by May), a controlled manipulation of the actors' sparkling chemistry (directed by May), A New Leaf proves a delightful introduction into Miss May's sadly small oeuvre.
The story is spun from the thread of all the great, ludicrous screwballs with a tinge of black humor that is May’s forté. A clueless, spoiled, rich playboy (Matthau) manages to spend all of his inheritance. In order to sustain his ridiculously excessive lifestyle, the playboy conspires to court an uncouth and klutzy botanist with a large fortune (May). He hopes that he can marry her, use her fortune pay off his debts, and then quietly kill the poor woman to take full hold of her estate. But things get typically complicated when it turns out the botanist, despite her awkwardness, is one of the sweetest, earnest, and heartwarming people the cold-hearted Matthau has come across. Doing her in is not going to be easy.
May's movie is the epitome of Sophistication. Its tones—bawdy slapstick, black comedy, dad jokes, Jerry Lewisian stuttering--are so broad that it becomes a mysterious movie to describe. She pays such loving attention to the most mundane of line deliveries as to sustain our attention and to warrant compulsive rewatches. She finds humor in the most unlikely of situations. One scene in particular, when Matthau tries to help May put on a Greek nightgown that she's put on the wrong way, is so gut-bustingly guffawesome that we need to pause the film to regain our breath. The secret glue of May's film is character. We wouldn't find any of this funny if May didn't care to draw out her kooky characters—a selfish prick, a lovable ditz—to their maximum potentials. Elaine May's performance as a likable yet lonely sap (a character I can firmly sympathize with) is one for the ages. It has been alternately described as Chaplinesque, Lewisian, annoying, simplistic, bawdy, subtle, and sweet. These contradictions are what make May’s performance fresh to viewers today.
A New Leaf, May’s debut feature, was slated to run a staggering 3 hours. But Paramount Pictures, thinking it commercial suicide to release such a sprawling film, said NO to May's vision. Robert Evans whittled it down to a brisk if clumsy 100 minutes. May was furious. She took out many ads in trade magazines, loudly protesting the hatchet-job her film endured. Watching the film, one can see May’s point. Some scenes are bizarrely foreshortened; just when a sequence will start to build up internal steam, poof! it’s over, and the next scene shuffles in with no warning. The beginning is especially jarring, as we shuffle from car-garage to streets to mansion to horse park to lawyer's office without a single establishing shot. (I had to rewatch the beginning twice because so much information was densely contained I felt I lost track of the story.) The entire film sports this feeling of perpetual anti-climax. Part of this has to do with May's complete newness to the medium of cinema. In a famous anecdote, she recalls how the first day of shooting, she had no idea what a camera could do or how to use it properly. Because she had no concept of "coverage" (i.e., starting off by shooting a scene with a master shot, then doing individual medium-shots, then close-ups if necessary), she simply shot all her scenes once-through, without any type of coverage for conversation. As a result, at the end of the first week, she was two months ahead of schedule. When the concept was finally explained to her, she went back to fix everything. As a result, she got three months behind schedule. May suspects this may have been deliberately done to sabotage her work and to get her fired early.
The producers also sabataged the pecular internal flow of A New Leaf by cutting many critical scenes. Apparently, May's original cut includes two crucial murders (involving poison) that are only passingly suggested in the final Evans re-edit. Matthau’s character was slated to have poisoned May’s and his own lawyer, and the film’s happy ending would become considerably darker given our knowledge that Matthau would have gotten away with murder. Such an ending would give special prominence, black irony, and significance to the bizarre happy ending of the film, which seemingly comes out of nowhere.
THE HEARTBREAK KID (1972)
Of all the four Elaine May movies, this was the one that escaped the most damage. In May’s words, this was mainly because she was a director-for-hire for this project. Based on a screenplay by Neil Simon, May’s contract stipulated that she could not excise a single word from the script without Simon’s consent. Given this excessive handicap, May was faced with a creative challenge: how could she best get her vision across in such a limited situation? The answer came from May’s Jewish background.
The Heartbreak Kid, one of the supremely underrated rom-coms of the 70s, is a film about the contested divide between the sexes and religions: specifically, the Jews and the Protestants. A delightfully chipper naïf nnamed Lenny, one of the most un-self-aware bozos you'll ever meet in a movie (Charles Grodin) marries a nice Jewish girl named Lila (Jeannie Berlin, the daughter of director Elaine May). They go on their honeymoon to Miami Beach. Lenny promptly grows weary of her in the most flippant and arrogant display of baby-ish behavior imaginable: he finds her repulsive after she eats a tuna-sandwich egg-salad sandwich in a weird way, and after she gets badly sunburnt on the Beach, leaving him looking like a humiliation. That’s it. Lenny wants to leave the Jewish girl for a "sexier" blonde college Minnesotan who's on vacation in Miami (Cybill Shepherd at her bitchiest and baddest best). Note: this is literally five days after Lenny and Lila have married. The college girl's stern papa (Eddie Albert) does not approve.
May adds several of her own twists not explicitly in the Neil Simon script. She adds the theme of ethnic divisiveness between couples, starting the film with a Jewish wedding and ending it with a Protestant one. She casts her own daughter Jeannie Berlin in the crucial role of Lila. Like a laidback version of May’s botanist in A New Leaf, we grow rather fond of this kook, slightly dopey girl—which makes her betrayal at the hands of her newlywed husband all the more heart-breaking. And May continues to utilize her relative amateurishness and inexperience with filmmaking to her advantage. Most of the scenes in The Heartbreak Kid are filmed in one, maybe two, master-shot long-takes. The most effective of these one-shots comes during the hilariously cringe-inducing scene where Lenny clumsily announces his love for the WASPy princess to her parents, also letting slip that he’s married, and that he was married less than five days ago.
The Heartbreak Kid is about the horrors that befall people who are neither fit nor ready to "love" somebody. It's about that rift between desire and reality, how what you imagined a person to be isn't who you're going to get, and that you'd better be damn sure you're truly in love with a person and that you aren't leading them on, or else you'll end up with a sweet-sad-pathetic-heartbreaking scene as the one in the hotel-restaurant with Lila and Lenny. Lenny is in love with an idea, and not the actual personality or humanity of either his wife Lila (played marvelously by Berlin channeling her own mother's guffawesome performance from A New Leaf) or his college girlfriend. And as the film's anger-inducing yet necessary ending indicates, it's a lesson that will come hard to those too stuck-up or vapid to understand at their early age. Its final shot manages to supersede even The Graduate's final shot of lost lovers glancing into the unknown ether. At least in The Graduate we were on board with Ben and Elaine for their whole society-defying ego trip. Here, we never feel comfortable with Lenny the Loser from Minute One. And that makes ALL the difference.
MIKEY AND NICKY (1976)
Before we move on, we must qualify one theme central to understanding Elaine May’s movies: betrayal. Betrayal is addressed in all four of her movies, each in its own distinct ways. It is screwballsy and light-heartedly dark in A New Leaf. It is painful and awkward in The Heartbreak Kid. It is bawdy, satiric, and loony in Ishtar. But it is perhaps Mikey and Nicky where betrayal transforms into a life-or-death struggle, with non-movie-odds. Mikey and Nicky, indeed, is a cinematically powerful ethical dilemma: under what circumstances would you betray your best friend? Your wife? Your family? Under what circumstances can such a betrayal be justified? Though May’s film explores this topic, we can’t be safe in saying she provides us with a clear-cut answer. And that’s how it should be.
All 4 May movies revolve around one member of a couple betraying the other. In the case of A New Leaf and The Heartbreak Kid, it’s a married heterosexual couple; in Mikey and Nicky and Ishtar, they’re male best friends. May’s view is noticeably complex—in essence, seeing betrayal as a necessary part of a normal life. Betrayal in May’s cinema reminds us of our humility and humanity, imploring us to seriously reflect on our own relationships and how to best mend/bolstenurture them. It is this humility that makes Matthau realize the error of his ways in A New Leaf and save his drowning-if-irksome wife. It is this humility that breathtakingly ends The Heartbreak Kid, which ends so quickly and so without fanfare that you can be taken aback by its suddenness. (The first three Elaine May movies, indeed, are renowned for their surprise endings.) For the movie’s entirety, Lenny has acted with a comic lack of self-awareness or self-reflection on anything he does. From his impulsive decision to give his wife the cold shoulder after she eats a tuna egg-salad sandwich a funny way, to the increasingly impulsive decisions that draw him towards Sexy Cybill and her parents, Lenny embodies a universal youthful mentality that azcts first and thinks second. But all this changes at the post-wedding party in the film’s finale, after Lenny has married the manic WASP-y dream girl (Cybil Shepherd) he left his wife (Jeannie Berlin) for. Though the mood is ostensibly one of celebration, the solemnity expressed by Grodin’s ambiguous face in the final shot is one of cluelessness, weariness, and confusion, with a slight tinge of regret. His final line—when asking a kid how old he is, wistfully remarking, “I was 10…”—lands with a ironic morbidity, since it is very obvious he is still mentally 10, still a kid, still with a lot to learn about the delicacy of love, still with a lot to learn about the concept of fidelity. Similar to the ending of Nichols’s The Graduate, the escapist-bubble that the young protagonist builds for himself is cheerfully and rather thankfully popped in the closing moments. Reality hits, and the betrayals of the previous 100 minutes take on a real-world significance, not only for the hero Lenny, but to us, the audience, who has delighted in Lenny’s antics up until this moment. Now, we just feel bad for everyone involved in this sad, sorry affair that Lenny has mocked up. Crucially, through May’s humility, she does not judge her characters. None of the people in her films can be said to be overtly cruel or villainous; they simply reflect tendencies and shortcomings that ALL humans feel, satirized and magnified to magnanimous degrees.
By the end of a May movie, her characteres cease existing in a cinematic bubble where their illogical decisions have no repercussion on their peripheral world. They dig themselves deeper and deeper into a hole filled with their accumulating neuroses, uglinesses, and shallownesses. By the end of the film, they have digged themselves so far into said hole that, when they look back, they can’t even recognize who they are and how they got there. May usually makes this descent into the hole very easy for the audience to follow: with Matthau in A New Leaf, Charles Grodin in Heartbreak Kid, and Hoffman/Beatty in Ishtar, they are all obviously buffoonish and rather dislikeable caricatures existing in a satirical universe separated from the rest of the real-to-life supporting characters (i.e., May in A New Leaf, Jeannie Berlin in Heartbreak Kid, the Moroccan populace in Ishtar). Their self-delusions are so pronounced that it is only a matter of time before the penny drops and they come face-to-face with their horrific behavior.
But, this process of falling into a hole finds its most complex expression in Mikey and Nicky, where the two leads (Peter Falk and John Cassavetes) were best of friends not only on the screen, but in real life. Unlike the betrayers in May’s previous work (spoiled snob Matthau or the creepy and immature Grodin), there is nothing so brazenly misguided of Falk’s character, who betrays Cassavetes. In Mikey and Nicky, Falk seems coerced into betraying his best friend by forces outside his control. Their chemistry is so electric and alive and joyful, we are kept on the edge of our seats all throughout the movie as we keep asking ourselves the question, “Will Falk go through with the betrayal? Or will he help Cassavetes skip town?” The answers are disturbing.
ISHTAR (1987)
“If half the people who hated Ishtar actually went to see it, I’d be a very rich woman today.”—Elaine May, 2006
I can’t think of a film with such a wider divide between its critical reception and its actual quality than Ishtar. It’s become a joke to dig into its “badness”, how it was a box-office-bomb (grossing only 10 million dollars out of a purported, still-to-be-confirmed budget of 51 million; May herself claims the budget was closer to 30 million), how it cost so much. The stories of Elaine May leveling sanddunes are hilarious, but incredibly misguided and, as May herself attested in a recent interview, outright lies. Separated from the bizarre politics of the time, we can view Ishtar for what it rightfully was all along: an incredibly smart, sharp satire on U.S. involvement in the Middle-East, shot through with May’s signature penchant for black humor and her love of the little guy.
Before we move on, I thought it would be productive to hear Elaine May herself talk about the Ishtar snafu:
"When the movie came out, we had three previews, and they went really well. And [former Columbia owner] Herb Allen said, 'This is fantastic! Thumbs up!' So I went to relax in Bali, because I thought everything was fine. I hit Bali, and Warren calls and tells me that the day the press came, an article came out in the Los Angeles Times in which the head of Columbia—David Puttnam—wiped us out. It was the same thing he said before: That we should be spanked, that there was too much money, that he was going to reform Hollywood! When these articles started coming out, I thought—only for five minutes—“It’s the CIA!” I didn’t dream that it would be the studio. For one moment, it was sort of glorious to think that I was going to be taken down by the CIA. And then it turned out to be David Putnam, my own studio boss.
It was really sort of unforgivable what he did. He attacked his own movie; he was the head of the studio. And Mike Nichols, my partner, said it was like an example of an entire studio committing suicide. They all just went with him.
So when the press junket came, the next screening of this movie, which had sort of gotten really good word-of-mouth, there were no laughs, and people kept saying how much money it cost. Because he—David Puttnam—had done something that no studio had never done: He actually released the budget, or his version of it. So Charles Grodin, who plays the CIA agent, was at a screening. I was told about this: The entire audience was saying, 'It cost so much money! It cost so much money!' And Grodin finally said, 'What do you care? It's not your money! It's not like if it didn't cost that much money they'd give it to you. It's [corporate parent] Coca-Cola's money! Coca-Cola would keep it! What do you care? Your tickets don't cost any more. Your tax dollars didn't go to it. Why are you -- you people in cloth coats -- complaining about how much money in costs?' And it occurred to me that that's sort of true, when people complain like that."
In her view, therefore, Ishtar was purposely dropped flat on its ass by its studio, who in turn convinced all the critics to turn against it, which prompted Warren Beatty’s demands that no critics be invited to the general preview screenings if they were simply going to hate the movie off the basis of some rather lame jokes about its budget, which prompted Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel to name it the worst film of 1987, and the rest (as they say) is history. It was a series of snowballing events that seemed to spell one thing: disaster for the movie, but even more importantly, disaster for the career of Elaine May. Outrageously, for the fourth time, things once again did not go May’s way. Most of this can be attributed to changes in studio structure. Except for Heartbreak Kid, all of May’s movies were made during shifts in their studio’s reigning regimes, and all the new kings were harsh and unsympathetic to May’s perfectionist, slow process. (Sometimes shooting up to 50 takes of one scene to get the right expression from Beatty or Hoffman in Ishtar, sometimes shooting millions of feet of film for Mikey and Nicky that ran for 10 hours plus.)
It was a shame, furthermore, that Ishtar ended up being the movie that firmly destroyed any chances of May landing another directorial job in Hollywood. Why? Because Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman literally did Ishtar as a favor for Elaine May. This was her passion project, not (as Ebert and other negative critics of the time believed) a vanity project kickstarted by Beatty. Beatty, to be sure, was involved with producing the film and getting it off the ground. But for the most part, the two stars left most of the creative autonomy and vision of the picture go to May. She had helped them out of a pickle when she script-doctered two films of theirs which became hits primarily because of her rewrites. These films were the aforementioned Heaven can Wait (which landed Warren Beatty a nomination for Best Director) and Tootsie (which landed Hoffman an Oscar nod for Best Actor). The cruel irony, then, that this was the project that ended up doing her in is a bit of black May-esque humor that May could perhaps perversely enjoy—if it didn’t tank her career, that is.
But time heals all wounds. And it seems as though Ishtar has begun to see a wide critical turnaround in recent years. As more people become aware of Elaine May’s movies, they will look at Ishtar through the context of her cinema. And they will begin to appreciate its singular eccentricity, its black humor, its precocious performances, its oddly delightful images (blind camels, singing cornball covers of “That’s Amore” as a “comeback”, etc.). Ishtar, like the best Elaine May movies, is cringeworthy in its approach to humor, but also kind, gentle, and always vividly sharp in the "Character Empathy" Department. And it has wallop after wallop of brilliantly realized setpieces, culminating in an impossible showdown between Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman, and Isabella Adjani (armed to the teeth with rocket launchers and AK's) and the U.S. Army (with only a meek wittle wifle) in the Moroccan desert where everyone look awkwardly, wildly out-of-place. And that's the point.
For a more comprehensive look at the production of Ishtar from the gal herself, read this great, rare 2011 interview with Elaine May.
