Madonna has called on the US government to reform fire arm safety in the wake of the Uvalde school shooting, which left 19 young children and two adults dead.On Tuesday (May 24), an 18-year-old gunman opened fire at Robb Elementary School, which teaches children aged seven to 10. Texas Governor Greg Abbott confirmed that the suspect was later shot dead by responding law enforcement officials.Following the attack, many figures from the entertainment world expressed their anger following the mass shooting including Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, Finneas, actor Chris Evans, Migos rapper Offset, Peter Frampton, Black Sabbath‘s Geezer Butler, Patton Oswalt, NBA star LeBron James and Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr and US President Joe Biden.Now, Madonna has taken to Instagram to call for stricter gun control.“I cannot imagine the heartache and heartbreak the parents of these 19 children must feel,” she wrote alongside a clip from her 2019 ‘God Control’ music video.A post shared by Madonna (@madonna)“I have children in elementary school and if they did not come home from school one day I don’t think I could survive.”She questioned how the 18-year-old suspect “can purchase 2 automatic rifles on his birthday with no background check, no safety training, no questions asked?????”“The NRA refuses to change its position and legislation cannot get one bill passed that requires tougher fire arm safety laws,” she continued.

Judd Apatow on George Carlin: ‘He was the Madonna of comedy’
Apatow refers is co-producer Michael Bonfiglio, the acclaimed documentarian (“30 for 30: Bo Jackson”) with whom he collaborated on the 2018 HBO documentary “The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling.”Their study of the trailblazing Carlin, who died in 2008 at the age of 71, unfolds in much the same vein as “The Zen Diaries” and includes interviews with Carlin’s daughter, Kelly Carlin, and a gaggle of fellow comics including Paul Reiser, W. Kamau Bell, Steven Wright, Judy Gold, Robert Klein and Patton Oswalt.Viewers familiar with only the bare-bones arc of Carlin’s life will take a deep dive into his professional and personal trajectory — from the clean-cut, suit-wearing ’60s-era stand-up comedian who grudgingly embraced “establishment” television mores (including a 1966 guest-starring role on the ABC sitcom “That Girl”) — to embracing his inner voice and morphing into the bearded, pony-tailed comic voice known for his cutting-edge record albums and standup act (The “Seven Words You Can Never Say on Television”) that launched him into household-name stardom — and plunged him into an abyss of drug abuse.Apatow and Bonfiglio also shine a light on Carlin’s personal life, including his childhood growing up on West 121st Street, and his nearly-forty-year marriage to wife Brenda, who died in 1997 from liver cancer.“What’s interesting is that he changed [performing] styles five times.

‘I Love My Dad,’ ‘Master of Light’ Lead SXSW Film Awards
Peter Debruge Chief Film CriticBack together in person after two years of going virtual during the pandemic, the Austin-based SXSW Film Festival has announced its juried prizes. As in previous editions, the awards show happened at the midpoint of the nine-day event, before SXSW’s music events suck much of the attention away from film screenings.The top prize in narrative feature competition went to “I Love My Dad,” written and directed by James Morosini, who also stars as a younger version of himself in this uncomfortable retelling of how he was catfished by his father (played by Patton Oswalt).“Morosini displays massive empathy as a filmmaker to get into the mind of the father he feels betrayed by, and also as an actor portraying the impact of that betrayal,” said the jury, who also gave special jury prizes to the cast and crew of “It Is in Us All” and Elizaveta Yankovskaya, star of the Russian film “Nika.” Best documentary feature honors went to director Rosa Ruth Boesten’s “Master of Light,” a portrait of once-incarcerated painter George Anthony Morton’s steps to rebuild his life after prison, which impressed its jury for its empathy as well.“With astonishing intimacy, the film’s visuals build an artful bridge between two- and three-dimensional realms that are deeply rooted and utterly transcendent,” the jury explained.
