The Very Best of Film/TV

Orange Is the New Black, Watch What Happens Live, Glorious Technicolor: From George Eastman House and Beyond, Andrei Tarkovsky:
Sculpting in Time

Netflix brings us the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the hot new season of Orange Is the New Black on Jun 12. Among the highlights? There are too many to list, but they include the return of Lea DeLaria as Big Boo and Ruby Rose joins the cast!

Also on Netflix this summer, watch the premiere of Tig Notaro’s intimate and revealing documentary film Tig. “Good evening. Hello. I have cancer.” Comedian Tig Notaro used those words to open a stand-up set in Los Angeles in August 2012. Defiantly funny in the face of devastating news, Tig offers us an unflinching look at a woman determined to find humor, life and love in the places we all fear the most.

Watch What Happens Live is Bravo’s fun, lively and interactive late-night talk show hosted by Andy Cohen. For nearly six years, it’s been a fan favorite among Bravo reality show watchers and celebrities alike. Past guests have included Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady GaGa, Tina Fey, Jimmy Fallon, Oprah, Snoop Dogg, Adam Lambert and almost every star from your favorite reality TV programs! Tune in Sundays thru Thursdays at 11pm Eastern time.

The Museum of Modern Art is celebrating the 100th anniversary of technicolor in film with an exhibition of over 60 film screenings entitled Glorious Technicolor: From George Eastman House and Beyond. On Jun 29, MoMA’s film is Scaramouche, a ‘50s classic directed by George Sidney. The series of screenings runs thru Aug 5.

Get ready, serious cinema connosseurs! Andrei Tarkovsky is arguably one of the most influential movie directors of all time, and his film Solaris, released in 1972, was the winner of the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival. The Museum of Art and Design (MAD) is screening this science fiction classic for one night only (Jul 10) as part of its series on the legendary director's films, Andrei Tarkovsky: Sculpting in Time.
