Grace Of Monaco
Most films headed to the Cannes Film Festival keep their cards close to the chest, revealing as little as possible before making their grand premiere on the Croisette. Not so with "Grace Of Monaco." Olivier Dahan's upcoming drama overcame a rumored clash with Harvey Weinstein to land the opening slot at Cannes in May. And now a three-minute trailer and over fifty new images have dropped to show off the goods that Dahan and Weinstein are bringing to France in just a couple of months.

Xan Cassavetes, the daughter of John Cassavetes and the director of the wonderful film world documentary "Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession," wrote and directed "Kiss of the Damned" with a wink and a nod so overt that, from the opening credit sequence, which closely mimics the similarly-titled Hammer horror movie "Lust for the Vampire," it runs dangerously close to becoming a ninety-minute game of Spot The Reference. Thankfully, the knowingness never becomes too cloying, and what Cassavetes lacks in technical proficiency, she more than makes up for in a kind of heartfelt conviction sorely lacking in the genre.

You love Parker Posey, we love Parker Posey -- who doesn't love Parker Posey? If there is somebody out there who isn't down with the actress, then we just don't want to know them, but for the rest of us, she's lining up a role in what is shaping up to be the most fascinating and unlikely of movies about one of the great cinema stars of all time.

While Playlist favorite “Parks and Recreation” continues to light up our Thursday nights with a dose of refreshingly smart comedy amidst two holdovers in “The Office” and “30 Rock,” some have been taking to all forms of social media to mourn the midseason loss of “Community,” which occurred this past winter. If you’ll remember, there was a pretty significant outcry over the cult series being yanked from its 8 p.m. time slot for the return of “30 Rock,” with a slate of episodes still left to air. For some fans, it started as a tweet from series showrunner Dan Harmon that read, “What you call 8:00, we call home. Community returns to Thursday nights on March 15th,” for others it was sites like Deadline that proclaimed that the cult hit was back with a vengeance in its normal time of 8 p.m. on Thursdays. While word on whether the hotly debated ratings of this hilarious live action cartoon will bump it into a fourth season, it’s nice to see Jeff and the gang returning, and we’re happy to see the time slot didn’t Chang.
