Fugs and Fines: The Mistress America Premiere

August 14, 2015

    I am not conversant in Greta Gerwig’s filmography, but maybe I should be: Lola Versus, Frances Ha, and now Mistress America are all supposed to be pretty good. The problem is, I only get a chance to focus on movies when I’m on a plane, and a quirky naturalistic mumblecore dramedy is never really what I’m Read More … Go Fug Yourself

TCA Fugs and Fabs: NBC/Universal

August 13, 2015

    Oh my god TCA will never end. I love TV too but you have got to get a grip. (In fairness, I believe the final events are happening today, and then all our TV critic friends will — I HOPE — get to take a long nap and have a giant cocktails.) In other news, Read More … Go Fug Yourself

Fug or Fab: Zendaya in Vivienne Westwood

August 12, 2015

  Once again, Zendaya is bringing the fashion alchemy. It’s basically a nice t-shirt partially tucked into a suit of madness. The jacket, I could live with, but those pants look like a discarded costume from a Les Miserables stage reboot. Those pants have Seen Things. They have heard the people sing. And there she is Read More … Go Fug Yourself

The Man From F.U.G.C.L.E.: Elizabeth Debicki in Valentino

August 11, 2015

  I suspect there’s a contingent of people who will find this floaty and romantic and fine, and I have tried to join it, because I’m having trouble articulating my precise issues — so I thought maybe I was just being difficult. But it’s very flat and unremarkable on her. The colors read dull, like seaweed Read More … Go Fug Yourself
