Well, another Thanksgiving is coming to an end.
Needless to say, with everything going on in the world, this Thanksgiving is a bit different than what I’m used to.
With all that in mind, though, the TSL crew had an active Thanksgiving. Here’s a few highlights of our day:
So, another Thanksgiving comes to a close. Usually, I do a big long list of what I’m thankful for each and very year but this year, I’m just thankful for all of you. 2020 has not gone the way that any of us planned it would. I was certainly expecting the year to be a lot more festive and I think that the rest of this decade probably will be. People have been locked away for too long. I have a feeling that once the pandemic is under control, there’s going to be a lot of pent up energy being released.
So, this year, I’m thankful for our readers, our contributors, and just this site in general. TSL has been around for ten years now. We’re going to be around for the next ten as well.
So, let’s sit back and enjoy the ride, shall we?
Here to keep your holidays happy is a film about death.
It’s also a film about love and romance and pursuing your dreams and all that good stuff but I have a feeling that the death is what everyone’s going to remember.
This film is set to be released on December 27th.
Here’s the trailer for The Prom, the latest film from Ryan Murphy. Apparently, Netflix is going to give this film a huge Oscar push and considering that it stars Meryl Streep, you really can’t blame them.
To be honest, this film looks like the most Ryan Murphy thing that Ryan Murphy has ever done. I imagine that some people will absolutely love it and some people will hate it and that there probably won’t be much space in between. Hopefully, this film will be a hit and Murphy will get so busy directing films that he won’t have time to do any further seasons of American Horror Story.
This film will be available of Netflix on December 11th!
4 Shots From 4 Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 Shots From 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking.
RIP, the amazing Daria Nicolodi.
4 Shots From 4 Daria Nicolodi Films
As soon as I heard the great Daria Nicolodi had passed away at the age of 70, I knew that I had to find a scene from one of her films to share here on the Shattered Lens.
Unfortunately, YouTube was not very helpful. I was tempted to re-share the scene of her arm-wrestling David Hemmings in Deep Red but I chose not to because, according to our stats, a lot of you already visited that post after the news of her passing was announced.
I also nearly shared the finale of Shock. This was Daria’s best performance and one that she always cited as being a favorite. However, I hesitated to do so because that scene features Daria’s character dying in a rather gruesome manner and I worried it was perhaps a bit too morbid to share under these circumstances. But this scene also shows what a good actress Daria Nicolodi was and, again, Shock was a film that she always cited as being one of her personal favorites. That said, I just can’t bring myself to pay tribute to someone on the day of their passing with a scene in which they die. So, I’m sharing a different scene from Shock. This one is perhaps a bit less dramatic than the finale but it still shows what a good and expressive actress Daria Nicolodi was. She makes the scene below feel real.
So, in memory of the great Daria Nicolodi, here she is in Mario Bava’s Shock:
