Happy New Year!
Hey readers! If you’re enjoying the Girls, on Film zine, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter (check out the homepage for links). Steph and I are busily planning out events and issues for the upcoming year.
We just finished out January with Issue #7: The Entertainers Issue. You can find it and all of our previous issues online for free (see the Issues page). This latest issue puts the spotlight on (you guessed it)… entertainers! The lineup includes:
- Knightriders, George Romero’s self-reflective action/drama about a sprawling Ren Fest troupe on motorbikes;
- This is Spinal Tap, Rob Reiner’s immortal mockumentary about Britain’s loudest (and most punctual) metal band;
- Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, a rom com about a teen (Sarah Jessica Parker) who desperately wants to be on DanceTV;
- Big Top Pee-wee, the least memorable of the Pee-wee Herman productions;
- Who Framed Roger Rabbit, a noirish comedy where humans and cartoons interact amidst a murder mystery;
- Punchline, a comedy/drama aspiring stand-up comics starring Sally Field as the usual homely sweetheart and Tom Hanks, in rare form, as a complete asshole;
- The Big Picture, Christopher Guest’s directorial debut about a hot shot director (Kevin Bacon) who is hired to make a major Hollywood movie; and
- The Fabulous Baker Boys, a drama about a struggling piano lounge duo starring the Bridges Brothers and the very cool Michelle Pfieffer.
Also, many thanks to guest writer, Kim Robinson, for contributing to this issue!
