The Tenth Voice (LGBT) • January 26, 1:00am – 2:00am

The Tenth Voice • Jan. 25, 2020

Hello everyone! We're kicking off the new year with the transgender news of the month as usual, and then we are going to be talking with four special guests in our studio - a coterie of Kansas City drag kings: Dick von Dyke, Buttwiser, Victor Shawn, and last but not least Boris Tudeth. They are going to talk about what is the art of drag and what being a drag king means, their inspiration and their lives, and some of the fun things they have going on in the community.

After that lively subject we will be talking with some other lively folks, Michael Grayman-Parkhurst and some of the cast and crew of the latest Spinning Tree Theatre production “Girlfriend,” a coming of age story of two Nebraska boys in the summer of 1993 who slowly fall in love while bonding over their love of music.

Freeze Frame • January 24, 10:58pm – 11:00pm

Freeze Frame: “The Turning” (PG-13), “The Gentlemen” (R), “Clemency” (R), “John Henry” (R)

“The Turning” is the latest in a long string of movies based on Henry James’ classic ghost story, “The Turn of the Screw.” Mackenzie Davis plays a nanny who attempts to protect two children from evil spirits. Ambiguity isn’t necessarily a fault, but “The Turning” is so vague and disjointed that it plays like a reel of film was accidentally edited out. Check out the classic 1961 Deborah Kerr version, “The Innocents” instead.

Filmmaker Guy Ritchie returns to familiar territory with the violent gangster epic, “The Gentlemen.” Matthew McConaughey plays an expat American in London who gets into trouble when he tries to extract himself from his lucrative marijuana business. “The Gentlemen” is cheeky and gimmicky, but should be a decadent guilty pleasure for many.

Alfre Woodard gives a riveting performance in the earnest social drama, “Clemency,” the winner of the top prize at Sundance in 2019. Woodard plays a warden whose job of carrying out executions is taking a massive emotional toll. Aldis Hodge is equally good as an anxiety-ridden death row inmate awaiting his inevitable fate. “Clemency” is extremely well made but excruciating to sit through.

Terry Crews stars in the bloody revenge thriller, “John Henry,” an ugly, disjointed throwback to movies like “Walking Tall.” It’s appropriate that Chris Bridges plays the bad guy because this movie is “Ludacris.”

Also opening this week, “The Rescue” is a Chinese action thriller about emergency responders. “The Song of Names” is a drama about a Polish-Jewish violin prodigy who is a refugee in WWII London. “Run” is a mystery thriller about a woman who raises her daughter in isolation. “The Last Full Measure” tells the true story of a Viet Nam war hero. The Panic Fest Horror Film Festival runs January 24 through the 30th at the Screenland Armour. Info is available at PanicFilmFest.com.

Take Two: “1917” (R)

Oscar-winning filmmaker Sam Mendes ("American Beauty," "Skyfall") obtained the story for his WWI epic "1917" from stories told to him by his grandfather. Opting to employ a single "point of view" shot for the entire film, Mendes and cinematographer Roger Deakins ("Bladerunner 2049") create an immersive atmosphere.
