‘Vinyl 1×10: Alibi’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Whatever happens tonight, I remain confused.” Vinyl closes its first season by cutting back and forth between Richie and Zak across a crowded room. It’s meant to remind us that the two men share a few too many secrets, and that the burden of guilt on Richie’s shoulders is far from lifted. It’s also almost completely […]

‘Vinyl 1×09: Rock And Roll Queen’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Stop covering your cock!” A fistfight in an elevator, a rock ‘n roll threesome, an indoor bat hunt, and some literally balls-out photography gave ‘Rock And Roll Queen,’ this week’s swing-for-the-fences episode of Vinyl, more than its share of lustful life. It’s an episode that bucks blandly traditional band narratives, tossing aside the dull idea of […]

‘Vinyl 1×08: E.A.B.’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“That’s a skeleton. Everybody’s got one.” There’s a good show buried somewhere inside the increasingly clunky heap that is Vinyl, a program currently wasting what has to be the steeliest performance of Olivia Wilde’s career in between leaden celebrity lookalikes and unexceptional scenes of rock ‘n roll bravado. ‘E.A.B’ has moments of fun, from a great opening […]

‘Vinyl 1×06: Cyclone’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“The logo looks like a toilet.” Bobbie Cannavale and Olivia Wilde are spitting blood, soul, sweat, and venom into this show. With a strong supporting cast (aside from a few weak links like James Jagger) working around them, they form an energized dynamo of human dysfunction that beats and thumps at the heart of the show. For […]

‘Drinking Buddies’ Review

by Dan Clark

Stars: Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson, Anna Kendrick, Ron Livingston, Ti West | Written and Directed by Joe Swanberg Director Joe Swanberg’s latest directorial effort Drinking Buddies is a charming little film about the messiness of human relationships. In many ways it reads as a reaction to the artificial interpretation of Hollywood’s current crop of romantic movies. Every cinematic […]
