Liza's Cabaret masterpiece

Bob Fosse's choreography and Liza Minnelli's iconic style captured the Wiemar Republic's Dark and Twisted Decadence perfectly. A film that helped set the tone for New York after dark in the gritty and dangerous 70's.

Channing Tatum steps up

An entertainer with a very rare ability to remain totally masculine while dancing with great skill, style, enthusiasm and joy. The baggy street uniform of the young 21 century men only enhancing Mr. Tatum's contemporary spite of that most awkward, though unique name.

The Elephant Man

A David Lynch Masterpiece.....entirely due to the brilliant casting.

Junya Watanabe / Darkly poetic

Wonderful high concept styling infusing fashion with a strong dose of artistic surrealism and dark romanticism.
The seating arrangement allows everyone to have a front row seat, which destroys the  pecking order drama and tension (which too many fashion heavy weights live for!lol)
This view also allows for a more accurate appreciation of the collection. Perfect soundtrack choice.

Miss Geraldine Page

One of my all time favorite actresses at her most glam starring opposite a stunning Paul Newman at his peak in one of my favorite films: Sweet Bird of Youth....a twisted, brutal tale written by the genius Tennessee Williams.

Grey Gardens

An brilliant documentary about Mrs. Jackie Kennedy's unforgettable Mother Daughter psycho-drama that starts off in times filled with glorious glamour, privilege and promise and spirals into disturbing mental illness and shocking squalor in fashionable East Hampton.
Truth IS (far far far!) stranger than fiction....indeed.
The 2009 HBO film starring Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore was exceptionally well done with fantastic make up & is worth seeing too.
