Tune in for an all new episode of “Cinema in Noir” on BlogTalkRadio. On this week’s podcast we discuss:
–The lastest in casting news (Chris Brown, Meagan Good, Vin Diesel)
–Viola Davis‘ comments in this month’s Essence Magazine concerning her initial hesitation playing a maid in upcoming film, The Help. Is there a tendency to portray black women as tragic figures in film?
—Tyler Perry’s feature in the August issue of Ebony Magazine. The article states “Five Perry films have claimed the No.1 spot on opening weekends, putting him in a heady fraternity with the likes of directors Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, and Quentin Tarantino.” Is Perry truly a part of the Hollywood elite?
“Cinema in Noir” is hosted by four fellow film writers/critics: Candice Frederick, Kimberly Renee, Rocky Seker, and ReBecca Theodore-Vachon
