Sundance Goes for Scares With The Witch

When you think Sundance, you don't necessarily think horror films, though maybe you should: The festival has debuted some of the most frightening and innovative scary movies of the past two decades, from The Blair Witch Project to Saw to V/H/S to last year's out-of-nowhere surprise The Babadook. This year's clearcut genre favorite is The Witch, writer/director Robert Eggers' beautifully shot and incredibly disturbing tale of a 17th century New England family being terrorized by a malevolent force. Sundance audiences are generally quick to applaud, but it's always more fun to hear them scream. see more

Kanye's New Project Will Make You Feel All the Feelings

Well whaddya know, the multi-hyphenate businessman and rapper Kanye West has a heart after all. Just this morning, West teased a section of his Only One video on the Ellen show. The song, released earlier this month, is inspired by daughter North, and is his first collaboration with Paul McCartney. And they're adding another artist to their mix—Spike Jonze, who directed the video of Kanye and baby North spending some quality time together on a foggy road. Kanye whispers in North's ears and holds her hand as they take a walk down the road together, and baby North has see more

Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzman on Wearing Prosthetic Penises in The Overnight

Gratuitous male full-frontal: It's not just for Paris runways anymore. The Overnight—a quirky sex comedy about two Los Angeles couples on a dinner date that just keeps going—screened at the Yarrow Theater last night, and writer-director Patrick Brice was on hand with husband-and-wife producer team Adam and Naomi Scott to introduce it and field audience questions afterward. In many ways, the film—starring Scott, Taylor Schilling, Jason Schwartzman, and French actress Judith Godrèche—is classic Sundance, with its modest budget and mumblecore DNA (Mark Duplass is also a producer), but all anyone wanted to talk about when it was over was see more

David Beckham: Coolest Stay-at-Home Dad Ever

Any wannabe soccer stars/underwear models who dream about trading lives with David Beckham might want to start casting about for a new idol . . . unless playing chauffeur to a pack of kids is part of said fantasy. Chatting with Jimmy Kimmel last night, the retired athlete revealed that he now spends most of his time driving his four kids with Victoria Beckham (sons Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz and daughter Harper) to school and soccer practice: "I'm literally an Uber driver." An out-of-shape Uber driver, to boot—at least, according to 3-year-old Harper, who recently announced, "Daddy, I love see more

The whiskey sour—you know, that drink you ordered when you very much wanted to pass for 21—is no longer considered a rookie mistake, thanks to whiskey's newfound cachet and the craft-cocktail movement's use of fresh ingredients. During the sour's post–World War II heyday—it dates to at least the 1860s, possibly earlier, and had more than a half-century run before Prohibition nearly killed it—"people were into packaged everything," says Jamie Boudreau, bartender-owner of Seattle's Canon, and those mouth-puckering bottled sour mixes tainted the drink's once-good name. Here, the sweetest places to get the newest sours. see more
