The story of the movie Vivarium dates all the way back to 2011, when director Lorcan Finnegan and screenwriter Garret Shanley made a short film called Foxes, about a young couple that gets trapped in an empty housing development. Just rows of anodyne residences they can’t manage to escape, a prefab suburban wasteland. Finnegan says the idea came from the “ghost estates” that emerged when the Irish economy tanked, along with the rest of the world’s, during the financial collapse of the late 2000s. The construction boom lead to a housing surplus, which led to buyers’ taking out bad mortgages and then going underwater when the market was obliterated, leaving them “financially and emotionally sort of trapped in their homes,” says Finnegan. … [Read more...] about Director Lorcan Finnegan Is Aware of How Creepy His Movie Seems Now
John Oliver returned to HBO last night — now working from home — and gave an in-depth update on the coronavirus and the “appalling federal response” to it. (You can watch his first coronavirus segment here and the second here.) Oliver highlighted the call from President Trump and many conservative pundits to relax social-distancing guidelines much sooner than necessary, which would effectively, as Oliver put it, force people to “sacrifice themselves for the economy” and result in even more deaths. “Relaxing social distancing right now isn’t just trading one bad outcome for another,” he said. “It’s trading one bad outcome for both bad outcomes. It’s shitting on your cake and choking on it too.” … [Read more...] about John Oliver Says Trump Has ‘F – – – – – – Stage Envy’ Over Coronavirus
While Joe remains in prison, the former Oklahoma zookeeper has filed a $95 million federal lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Interior, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and government agents, accusing them of violating his civil rights.

An additional $15 million is for false arrest, false imprisonment, selective enforcement and the death of his mother, Shirley, he claims. … [Read more...] about ‘Tiger King’ Cast: Where Are They Now?
Toby Harvard, who I worked on Come to Daddy with, we’ve written a new one. We were just starting to go out to actors before everything went south. I don’t like bothering people at the moment because, even though there’s probably a lot of spare time around, family hopefully comes as a paramount. It’s also a time where people are very blunt. And these sort of films, you really get one shot at approaching certain people, so I just feel like it’s probably better to be patient than rush ahead. Toby and I also thought we should probably write our big sellout commercial film if things go bad — if the independent film world falls apart completely, we may as well have a scorching-hot blockbuster script. … [Read more...] about New Zealand’s Ant Timpson Is Watching the End of the World From the Ends of the Earth
