Brooklyn filmmaker Alex Ross Perry and Elisabeth Moss, star of his new film Queen of Earth, may be the first duo to do back-to-back q&as at MoMA and MoMI. They were at the Museum of Modern Art on Monday and then at the Museum of the Moving Image on Tuesday to cap off Perry’s retrospective there. As you can see from the flyer above, the chats continue this week at IFC Center and Lincoln Center.
Robert Goolrick’s most recent novel, The Fall of Princes, finds retired 1980s ad man Rooney writing his memoir after an era of American Psycho-style unrepentant debauchery and greed (but without the murdering). Join the author for a discussion with the undeniably fabulous author and actress Joan Juliet Buck. (She played Madame Elisabeth Brassart in Julie & Julia and wrote an essay about being intimidated by Nora Ephron during the audition, and she’s written for a bunch of fancy publications, including Vogue, W, and The New Yorker.) And Algonquin’s publisher Elisabeth Scharlatt will be there, too. Aug. 25, at 7 p.m. Strand Book Store, 828 Broadway (Noho).
Last week we tipped you off to a few upcoming Q&As with some of our fave filmmakers (you can watch Friday night’s chat with Greta Gerwig, at Sunshine Cinema, above and on YouTube). Now you can add Alex Ross Perry to the mix, since the cat-loving director of Listen Up Philip will appear at a preview screening of his new one, Queen of Earth, as part of a retrospective at Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria. Elisabeth Moss of Mad Men, who stars in the movie as a woman on the verge, will also be on hand August 25.
Don’t know about you, but I was a little disappointed with the Mad Men finale. Maybe it’s just because I’m yoga-phobic, but I wasn’t a big fan of LululemDon. Luckily, the show isn’t going to end with ashram Hamm, cuz the folks at Hotsy Totsy Burlesque are writing the next chapter in the form of a Mad Men tribute.
