While Steven Soderbergh’s latest, Unsane, is undeniably schlocky, Soderbergh is one of those filmmakers who can lean into trash and come up with something with actual heft (another member of this club is Jeremy Saulnier). Working from a script from Jonathan Bernstein and James Greer—the duo’s last credit is Jackie Chan’s 2010 caper The Spy Next Door and they are also responsible for the Larry the Cable Guy movie, so this is a change of gear—Soderbergh keeps Unsane as stripped down and simple as possible. Full Story

In Chris Rock’s latest Netflix special, he makes a joke about Halle Berry. I don’t want to screw up the exact wording, but Vulture has it on this list. He often likes her Instagram photos and in Tambourine he mentioned he was single (although he was dating Megalyn Echikunwoke last year). Full Story

He does it a lot. RocknRolla, Peaky Blinders, Legend, technically Inception and Dark Knight Rises, and that’s just the criminal/gangster roles I remember off the top of my head. Tom Hardy has a niche and it’s “unintelligible crime boss”. (I like Tom Hardy, he’s a great actor, but let’s not pretend like enunciation is his thing. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

“There is pride to be had where the prejudicial is practiced with precision in the trenchant triage of tactile terminations.”  Remind me, if I ever forget, to never alliterate again.  That sentence, if you want to call it a sentence, is from Sean Penn’s new book Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.  Read Full Intro
