An early submission for the next installment of Loose Lips:
In his introduction to the lastest installment of the Night & Day film noir series at Central Cinema, host Brandon Ryan made repeated and somewhat lascivious reference to the "slutty femme fatales" we'd soon be seeing onscreen. Unfortunately, neither of the films Ryan was discussing—The Sweet Smell of Success and Fargo—contain slutty femme fatale characters, making him look thick-headed at best and casually misogynistic at worst. (Do your homework, kid, or the Night & Day series will become known for great movies preceded by unfun blather.)
In other news, Brendan Kiley says Brandon Ryan does a knockout job as an actor in A Behanding in Spokane, so that's good.
