At the movies: Saint Laurent.

The best movie in town currently is this. It has lots of sex, uncompromising nudity, drug use, cute dogs, hot guys, gorgeous women, amazing clothes, seductive music, and a heap of amazing acting. It's artsy, unafraid, and essential viewing.

Bianca Del Rio's Rolodex of Hate.

I had the opportunity to write about Bianca Del Rio's Rolodex of Hate tour before her Nashville appearance. It was everything you might expect- pure filth from beginning to end, and more than enough material to make you feel guilty as well as entertained. The T was spilled, and shots were given to the truly offended. If you enjoy RPDR, it's well worth your time for a glimpse behind the curtains.

At the movies: Insidious Chapter 3.

It's back.The little horror franchise that could keeps thwarting expectations (especially after that dumb shit in the second one), and I'll happily proclaim this chapter the best in the series. It's a prequel, which is fine, because the Lambert family's story is not quite as interesting as Elise Rainier and the Spectral Sightings boys. Truthfully, I'd like to see the series focusing on them, either theatrically or on one of those subscription-based networks that have yet to find the right kind of serialized horror (no offense to Hemlock Grove, whose first season is a fun mess and whose second season is actually good, like a real TV show).

At the movies: Clouds of Sils Maria.

One of the best films I've seen in ages. So much going on about identity and persona and the escape and prison of the theatre versus film. It gets exponentially better with each subsequent viewing, and it was damn masterful on the first viewing. Do not miss this.

At the movies: Avengers: Age of Ultron.

At the movies: Unfriended.

This is a ghoulish and emotionally brutal film that I can't help but recommend. Whether in a decently packed theatre or alone, on a laptop with headphones, it will get into your places of security and shred them.

At the movies: Furious Seven.

This was a difficult film to write about. For a lot of reasons. But I think I got at what didn't work, as well as how difficult the circumstances under which the film was made and finished were.
