Let’s get started…
10) Hot Flick: Tom of Finland
Tom of LA recently saw the new Tom of Finland biopic about the legendary gay illustrator who gained fame drawing hunky sexy men in uniform in the 1970s. Tom of Finland is playing in select cities, so check your local listings.
9) Retro Thrills: Suburbicon
You’d think that a movie written by the Coen Brothers, directed by George Clooney, and starring Matt Damon & Julianne Moore would be a slam dunk blockbuster, so why did James St. James have mixed feelings about Suburbicon?
8) Rolling Stone Magazine’s Jann Wenner HATES His New Biography
Rolling Stone magazine founder Jann Wenner has tried two previous times before this to have his biography written, but both books fell through. Sticky Fingers author Joe Hagan was given full access and wouldn’t let Jann read the book until it was finished, and when he finally got to read it, HE HATED IT! Get Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner & Rolling Stone Magazine on Amazon.
7) Hot Doc: Mansfield 66/67
The new documentary Mansfield 66/67 covers the last two years of Jayne Mansfield’s life- 1966 and 1967. It’s more about the gossip and legend of Jayne Mansfield – which is more fun anyway! Check the film’s website to see it is playing near you!
6) Netflix Pick – Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold
James watched the new Netflix documentary on seventies literary icon Joan Didion called Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold. The film was produced and directed by Joan’s nephew Griffin Dunne who you may remember from Madonna’s Who’s That Girl.

2) Hot Read – Fantasy Land: How America Went Haywire
How did America get to this point? Maybe this new book Fenton is reading – Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire written by Kurt Anderson who is the co-founder of Spy magazine – can explain. Get Fantasyland on Amazon.
