- ‘Single White Female’ Turns 25: Why Lesbian-Phobic Thriller Is Problematic
By Inkoo Kang, provided by
- Monday Aug 14, 2017
Bridget Fonda’s Allie Jones pretty much has it all in the opening scene of “Single White Female”: A handsome fiance (played by Steven Weber).An impressive career as an entrepreneur and software programmer.Adapted from John Lutz’s novel “Single White Female Seeks Same,” “SWF” boasts an unbeatable elevator pitch: A woman’s new roommate likes her so much that the roommate tries to become her.The erotic thriller of the ’80s and ’90s was a socially conservative genre; films like “Fatal Attraction” and “Unfaithful” reliably punished sexual and marital transgressors.[...] there’s no denying that “SWF” contributed to a canon of Reagan- and Clinton-era films with LGBTQ killers — a list that includes “Dressed to Kill,” “Cruising,” “The Silence of the Lambs,” and “Basic Instinct.”The anonymity of the city allows a vampire like Hedy to hide in plain sight and for Allie to be suckered into inviting her in.[...] it’s also a movie with a much better premise than its execution, capturing, as it does, the anxieties of living with strangers, the dark side of female friendship, and the replicability — and thus the unexceptionalness — of the identities we work so hard to forge every single day.No wonder, then, that “SWF” has been remade several times already (with another TV adaptation in the works) and seems to have inspired this week’s release “Ingrid Goes West.”The lesbian panic makes “SWF” a memorable watch, with a dangerous villain who herself doesn’t seem to know if she wants a lover, a friend, an aspirational model, or a sister.
- West of Loathing review — a Southwestern tour of the moo-pocalypse
By Stephanie Chan - Thursday Aug 10, 2017
REVIEW: West of Loathing is a surreal role-playing game with an unapologetically silly sense of humor that would make Mel Brooks proud. It’s the latest title from Asymmetric Publications, whose web-based RPG Kingdom of Loathing is still going strong since its 2003 launch. Kingdom of Loathing is what you’d get if you fed a rowdy bunch of […]

- AP Explains: How Robert E. Lee went from hero to racist icon
By RUSSELL CONTRERAS, Associated Press - Sunday Aug 13, 2017
Confederate Army Gen. Robert E. Lee was vilified during the Civil War only to become a heroic symbol of the South's "Lost Cause" — and eventually a racist icon.A son of American Revolutionary War hero Henry "Light-Horse Harry" Lee, Robert E. Lee graduated second in his class at West Point and distinguished himself in various battles during the U.S.-Mexico War.Lee accepted a leadership role in the Confederate forces although he had little experience leading troops.Historians say Lee's massed infantry assault across a wide plain was a gross miscalculation in the era of artillery and rifle fire.When Lee's father-in-law died, he took leave from the U.S. Army to run the struggling estate and met resistance from slaves expecting to be freed.After his death, Southerners adopted "The Lost Cause" revisionist narrative about the Civil War and placed Lee as its central figure.A generation after the civil rights movement, black and Latino residents began pressuring elected officials to dismantle Lee and other Confederate memorials in places like New Orleans, Houston and South Carolina.The removals partly were based on violent acts committed white supremacists using Confederate imagery and historians questioning the legitimacy of The Lost Cause.
