CHICAGO – The issue of gender identity, especially for those who are born with a vagueness as to what to call themselves between/beyond boy and girl, has come front and center in the U.S., both with the legalization of gay marriage and the callous repudiation of identity by trying to pass laws dismissing it (the North Carolina “bathroom” laws). The performance companies of The Living Canvas and Nothing Without a Company is currently staging “[Trans]formation,” which presents gender identity art by six performers, who perform most of the play in the nude.
One Missed Call
CHICAGO – Hello, J-Horror. Please hang up and dial again. In fact, the message “please hang up and dial again” should have given to Eric Valette before accepting Takashi Miike’s remake “One Missed Call” as his American directorial debut.
Hollywood’s successful calling to remake mediocre J-Horror films has finally ended with this tragic interpretation of “Chakushin Ari” in which an evil spirit haunts the cellular phone network for a group of bad-acting college friends.
Warner Bros. on Monday released new production stills for the upcoming supernatural thriller “One Missed Call,” which stars Shannyn Sossamon and Ed Burns. The film is slated to open on Jan. 4, 2008. All of the following production stills are credited to Guy D’Alema.
