The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere.

There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya?

“Completed movies that still haven’t been released” – Simon Brew at Den of Geek profiles a few movies from well-known (or decently well-known) filmmakers that are in the can but still on the shelf.

“It’s Still OK to Hate Showgirls” – Noah Berlatsky at The Atlantic adds fuel to the conversation over re-evaluating terribly entrenched crap. Is it self-aware satire, camp or just unwatchable crap?

“American Psycho: materialism, misogyny, and machismo” – The Dissolve crew discusses the many facets of a strike against consumer culture. Or at least the insanity of consumer obsession. It’s a stirring conversation and an excellent reminder to buy new business cards.

“Tilda Swinton on Why She Doesn’t Consider Herself an Actor” – Jenelle Riley at Variety talks with the actor artist about not conforming to, well, anything.

“Criticwire Surve: Spoiler Alert” – Professional critics weigh in on… I wouldn’t want to spoil it.
