In Media Les: Queer Lady Web Series - 5 to 10 Minutes in Heaven

One of the ways that the web democratizes media is that, given access to some funds or a way to raise them, anyone can make a series and put it out there for an audience to find.

In Media Les: 'High Art' - Where the Only Fun is in the Pun

The title of Lisa Cholodenko’s High Art (1998) is a pun. Because it’s about an artist who does drugs. Get it? “High” art? This is the silliest thing about the film -- rest of it is pretty serious and difficult. I’m still a bit miffed though, because High Artwould have been a perfect name for a buddy road movie about the zany adventures of two stoners who’ve been hired to bring a priceless painting to an auction across the country in 48 hours. Instead, we get sad Ally Sheedy and the filmic equivalent of listening to the Mazzy Star cover of “Sweet Jane” on endless loop.
