Nisha Moodley, who enjoys posting naked pictures of her toddler for all the world to see, has a not unreasonable request:
Julia Allison, whose life was destroyed by a TV show and whose father hates free speech, would like to take Noodles’s request several steps further:
I take it Simone and the two Julias didn’t see “Get Out,” which was nominated for Best Picture? I could suggest several smart books about the pleasures and cultural significance of horror, both literary and filmic, but what would be the point? Just asking Judy and her intellectual acumen to read anything other than the latest self-help slop would be like asking a bear to shit in a toilet.
Bottom viewing suggestion! Karyn Kusama’s “The Invitation,” a horror film about murderous California woos, is one of the best-directed motion pictures of the past few years. Frankly, maybe we should put the woos behind bars? Oh no, your dotty aunt Gilly is confusing representation with reality again!
