9 hours ago

  The 70th anniversary edition of the Cannes Film Festival is over and the prizes handed out on a night that surprisingly had no real surprises. I am not sure why some pundits are acting with eyebrows lifted  toward the announcement by Pedro Almodovar’s Cannes Film Festival jury that Sweden’s The Square from director Ruben Ostlund was the winner of the Palme d’Or, top prize of the fest.

27 May 2017 2:00 PM, PDT

There really is precious little hallmark for a Ryan Murphy show.

And yet somehow, still, they are all inescapably Ryan Murphy shows. Through them all, an auteur streak that… »
