Janhvi Kapoor: Mom always told me to be a good person

Actress Janhvi Kapoor says her mother, late actress Sridevi, always told her to be a good person from within.

"My mother would always tell me, whatever you think and carry in your heart, will show on your face. So it is important for an actor to be a good person from within because the camera captures everything," said Janhvi, at a panel discussion of Mami Movie Mela on Sunday in Mumbai, which was also attended by actresses Aananya Panday, Mrunal Thakur, and Radhika Madan.

NYC Weekend Watch: NYC ’81, ‘The Cotton Club Encore,’ ‘Pulse’ & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.


A series of New York-set films from 1981 begins with work by Abel Ferrara, Frederick Wiseman and more.

Alain Corneau’s Série noire has been restored and brought to screens. See the trailer here.

“Welcome to Metrograph: A to Z” continues with The Awful Truth.

House, Mulholland Dr., Ms. 45, and Fantastic Planet play late-night, while Edward Scissorhands screens early.

It could be about TV shows or movies that have similar themes or stories. It will be a way to talk about which, in my view, is the better. This time, I’ll be talking about The Office, both the UK and Us versions, and conclude which I think is the best. So, let’s go!

Movie Review – Hi-Death (2018)

Hi-Death, 2018.

Directed by Brad Sykes, Anthony Catanese, Tim Ritter, Amanda Payton and Todd Sheets.

Starring Kristen Adams, Kate Durocher, Jensen Jacobs, Craig Kelly, Todd Martin, Thomas Kindler, Christopher Preyer, Fabiana Formica, Julia Vally, Jay Sosnicki, Nick Randol and Eve Smith.


A collection of five low-budget horror shorts, linked by a pair of young women embarking on a ‘Terror Tour’ around Los Angeles.

From the Amicus collections of the 1960s and 1970s through to more recent examples such as the excellent Tales of Halloween and Ghost Stories, the portmanteau horror has been a fixture of big screen terror for many, many years. The latest example is Hi-Death, which brings together
