Females in Entertainment Interview: Writer/Director Caytha Jentis Talks about her Pandemic Short April Showers with Bill Sage and Lorraine Farris and her Feature Pooling to Paradise

By Suzanne Ordas Curry

I met Caytha many moons ago when her film Bad Parents premiered at the acclaimed Montclair Film Festival (NJ). Bad Parents was her third feature, after And Then Came Love and The One

Now she has a short screening at Monclair, one she filmed during the pandemic - because there are some things like creativity that cannot be crushed by Covid.  We talk about her short, April Showers and also about her newest feature, Pooling for Paradise which is streaming just about everywhere now.

Tell me about your latest feature Pooling for Paradise - a road trip movie with a rather interesting group of passengers! 
 What inspired you to write it?

Caytha: My thirty-something friend and I were in a Lyft on our way to dinner. I began chatting up the driver as I often do since making random connections is a favorite pastime of mine. I have met many interesting rideshare drivers in Los Angeles – a flat-earther, a musician, a former studio executive, a local politician… Ours did not disappoint. In his late twenties, we easily engaged in conversation that touched on philosophy, feminism, science fiction and anarchy. He was a film director who proudly identified as a recalcitrant.

Writer/Director Dana Glazer of A Case of Blue Takes A Deep Dive into the Joni Mitchell References in His Movie

Where does creative inspiration come from? We talk here with Writer/Director Dana Glazer whose movie A Case of Blue is now streaming. If you are a Joni Mitchell fan, you might already have has an inkling that the film might have some relationship to her work just be hearing the title. Read more about how Dana used one of his favorite artists as a muse for his film.

SBTS: "A Case of Blue" - tell me about how you were inspired to name the movie after her album "A Case of You". 

Dana Glazer: The film title is an amalgamation of Joni's songs, not from one song specifically. Certainly, the Blue album was a really big influence on me when I was in my 20's and trying to find the right life partner. The tug-pull of Joni's desire to find romance while also having total freedom spoke to me.

Review of The Many Saints of Newark: Stellar Performances but Misses its Mark - Does David Chase Have Another Target in Mind?

 

By Ashton Samson  

3/5 🤮🤮🤮

I never thought I would wake up one morning to find myself writing anything critical whatsoever about David Chase's work, but The Many Saints of Newark fell short of Chase's original television phenomenon, The Sopranos.

There are a few positives that may make it worth a watch for an avid Sopranos fan, such as wonderful acting, accurate depictions of the Newark race riots, excellent music reminiscent of the era and a few good ole fashioned mobster shootouts. My recent review of The Sopranos memorialized why I loved the show and why it will remain a legendary television phenomenon. However, it is essentially devoid of the pizzazz that made the show so fantastic.

There is still the question of who made Tony Soprano

NYC Area Event: Trent Dawson's Katonah Classic Stage Presents Oleanna: A Live Play to Make You Think, Broadway Actor Jordan Lage and Lea DiMarchi Join the Cast

 

By Bridget Neirotti

Katonah Classic Stage Kicks Off Their New Season of Plays with Oleanna

Are you yearning to partake in New York’s recovering culture? Are you tired of watching things on that slightly-too-bright LED TV or your tiny laptop screen? A live play might be your answer. Katonah Classic Stage (KCS) brings Oleanna to the stage November 4th through the 14th, 2021 at the Bedford Historical Hall in Bedford, New York outside of Manhattan. The cast includes many talented actors from the NYC area as well as Broadway/Film/TV actor Jordan Lage (Succession, Madame Secretary) and Actress Lea DiMarchi (This is The Night), This two-hander drama centers around the riveting miscommunication between a professor and his student, studying how power struggles and political correctness can distort a situation-- and not always for the better.

Katonah Classic Stage (KCS) is  Westchester County’s newest, nonprofit, professional theatre company dedicated to classic dramatic and comedic works,

Katonah Classic Stage promises to breathe new life into this 1992 off-Broadway classic by David Mamet. The play’s original debut was following the wake of the Anita Hill hearings against Clarence Thomas, as the world eagerly watched how these accusations played out in the media. History repeated itself over a decade later with the accusations against Brett Kavanaugh in 2018, making it only right that this play debuts its return to the stage among the discourse in recent years. KCS’s Oleanna revisits this story with the newfound lens of the #MeToo movement, political correctness, and cancel culture.

Review of The Sopranos: A View of this Iconic Show from A Young Fan - Five Reasons Why He Spent His Summer Watching 86 Episodes

 

By Ashton Samson                                                                              

I had to meet adult Tony Soprano this summer so that I could meet his younger self this fall! For many years, I simply avoided watching The Sopranos because of its length and the commitment that comes with watching 86 episodes of television. Additionally, my hectic schedule would scarcely grant me the time to dive into a show that I knew would enthrall me and leave me paralyzed, eyes glued to the screen, backside to the chair. 

As fate would have it, I concluded that this past summer, mere months before the release of the prequel film The Many Saints of Newark,  seemed like the perfect time to become acquainted with one of television's most iconic characters and my prediction proved correct. Not only was the summer the perfect time to acquaint myself, but I would in fact be incapable of watching any other show or film for that matter throughout the two and a half month time span. I was simply hooked. And here I sit ready for the long anticipated premiere of the prequel. I made it!

Review of David Lowery's The Green Knight: Honor and Chivalry are at the Forefront of this Timeless Story, Dev Patel Shines

 By Ashton Samson

4/5 🌝🌝🌝🌝

There’s a little bit of Gawain in all of us. That's my principle takeaway from The Green Knight, David Lowery’s new adaptation of one of the best-known Arthurian works, the 14th century chivalric romance, “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.” Those who know next to nothing about the original text or any such legends and who are looking for a straight action film might be left a bit disappointed as there are no Games of Thrones-esque battle sequences and the pacing is sluggish. However, those who are avid fans of Arthurian legends and who are somewhat familiar with the original poem should rejoice. 

The Green Knight is one of, if not the best adaptations of an Arthurian legend that remains faithful to its source material, all while adding a new dose of originality and flavor to a timeless legend. Why is it timeless, you might ask? It's timeless because, going back to where I began, we all have a bit of Gawain in us.

Review of Indie Film Pooling to Paradise by Caytha Jentis - A Road Trip Adventure to Las Vegas with a Mixed Bag of Characters Provides for an Enjoyable Movie Night and Stunning Scenery

By Harry Sherer

After the apocalyptic year - and - change the world has gone through, it’s fair to say we all deserve a little escapist fun. With theatres re-opening, cameras rolling, and the film industry getting back in full swing, what better way to end the summer than with a low-stakes, feel-good, tightly-written indie dramedy? Pooling to Paradise provides audiences with an enjoyable romp in an almost believable premise of three strangers and a driver in a pooled rideshare forgoing their trip to LAX and instead driving directly to Las Vegas. Instead of relying on boringly predictable road trip shenanigans— such as flat tires, hitchhikers, and traffic jams— Pooling to Paradise delivers a compact, character-heavy narrative that’s just as heartwarming as it is funny.

As with most indie films, Pooling lacks absurdly intricate set pieces, high profile actors, and studio-approved-family-friendly-watch-out-for-the-MPA dialogue. Instead, the film works within its limited budget to provide an intimate story with surprisingly great acting and realistic character interactions. Lynn Chen plays Jenny, a high-strung mom blogger who acts as our lead role and the resident “straight woman” of the hijinks. Our driver, Jordan Carlos’s Marc is a spiritual guide and a bonafide 5-star chauffeur (at least in his own mind). Our other passengers include Dreama Walker’s Kara, who turns the dumb blonde stereotype on its head, and the loveably obtuse Sean, played by Jonathan Lipnicki, who you may recognize from Stuart Little.

View: A Tribute to Candace L. Straight, Film Producer, Investment Banker and Tireless Advocate for Women

Candy Straight at Soho Film Festival (NYC)
By Suzanne Ordas Curry

The world lost Candy Straight, producer, banker and champion for women's causes.

When people leave this world, it is said that they will be missed. The world lost Candy Straight, and I know specifically the people and the projects this loss will affect. I also have a sense of the people she helped, especially females and young girls that were touched and inspired by her wisdom and strength. I am one of them.

I was privileged to have known Candy for the past ten years. We met at an educational seminar at a local college, where she was a speaker. I introduced myself afterwards and it grew from there. We had a lot of interests in common, Rutgers (she was on the Board of Governors), film, politics, women's issues and interestingly the world of the soap opera. In fact, we were both working on online soaps at that time.

Did you read Pippi Longstocking as a child? I know I did. I loved her antics and enjoyed reading about a fearless and fun female as a child, not knowing the effects of reading about a shero would have in shaping my view of life and the world.

Review of Disney's Cruella: Just Pure Fun and Entertainment with Astounding Performances by Emma Stone and Emma Thompson and Lest Not Forget the Costumes are Works of Art

By Ashton Samson

3.5/5 🌝🌝🌝🌛 

Cruella, the new film by director Craig Gillespie, is witty, glamorous and dark, showcasing the phenomenal talent of Emma Stone and Emma Thompson. It’s definitely a fun time for all. That the film is pure fun and not really much else is essential knowledge to gain before heading into it. 

There is certainly nothing overtly philosophical or thematically relevant to discuss with this movie. If someone is looking to watch a movie with social or political undercurrents, with metaphors and symbolism ablaze and an underlying message at its core, Cruella is not for you. I suppose a case could be made for the point of the film being about how to create sympathy for an antihero, someone who has none of the conventional aspects of a hero in place and yet seems destined for heroic status. However, it is best not to read into it too much. Movies don’t always have to be deep or philosophical because sometimes, it's just as entertaining to sit back and have a good time.

Lighthouse International Film Festival Runs June 3rd-6th, 2021 at the Jersey Shore: Virtual, Venues and Parties, SXSW's Swan Song is Opening Film


This shining gem of a film festival is at the Jersey Shore. Located on Long Beach Island, a narrow strip of pristine beaches on one side and bayshores on the other, it's a festival gaining recognition with its selection of award-winning and new independent films. A plus for this festival - this year it is outdoors as well as inside. Last year, the Lighthouse Festival was one of the few festivals that were actually held, and using a drive-in format, some of the showings were even sold out. What's better than watching a movie outside? That would be watching a movie outside with the smell of the beach in the air.

Lunch With The Ladies is a New Talk Show for Ladies Of a Certain Age: Premiering June 2021

There's a brand new talk show in town. But this one's unique. It's a talk show for ladies over a certain age. Yup, ladies with a few wrinkles and grey hairs. 

The show will feature five co-hosts, Suzanne Ordas Curry (a film producer), Beth Abramson Brier (a screenwriter), Iliana Guibert (actress/filmmaker), Messalina Morley Alton (actress/screenwriter) and Zonie Le Sane (professional).  The press release states that all of the hosts are over a certain age, but one of the hosts will always be a tad bit younger to keep them all current, because the beauty of being older is that although you know a lot, you also realize there's a lot you don't know. For example, one of the segments will be "Who is this?", where the ladies try to figure out who people are (think musical guests on SNL!)

Topics will include entertainment, families, shopping, arts, music, film, children, causes, aging, Broadway, health, the environment, living and more. The show's goal is to "talk about topics that unite us". There will be little political talk.

Guest co-hosts will appear throughout the season. Guests will include well-known actors, doctors, wellness specialists, filmmakers, non-profit pioneers, life coaches and other professionals. The show will also feature real woman talking about their unique experiences in life.
