Alex Karpovsky wears lovable neurosis well. On “Girls,” he plays Ray, the take-no-prisoners curmudgeon, with a penchant for social commentary and dry wit. In “Folk Hero & Funny Guy,” which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this week, he’s a struggling stand-up comedian playing opening act and second fiddle to his famous musician friend.
“Girls” creator and star Lena Dunham says Season 6 is like the Millennial queen’s last for the award-winning HBO series.
Hannah Horvath may not be the best person to give life advice, but Lena Dunham? That’s a different story.
For the comedy crime drama, “Dom Hemingway,” Jude Law transformed himself into a vulgar, violent, puffy and unhinged alcoholic fresh out of prison. The film was written and directed by Richard Shepard (“The Matador”) and the cast includes Richard E. Grant (“Dracula”) as Dom’s pal Dickie and Oscar-nominee Demian Bichir (“A Better Life”) as Mr. Fontaine, a Russian mobster that Dom didn’t rat out. Dom feels entitled to a big reward, so after a few excursions to the English pubs to get pissed and have hedonistic times with hookers, Dom sets off to find Fontaine and get what he deserves.
In “Girls” withdrawal after Sunday’s season finale? Here’s a little something to tide you over: Lena Dunham directed a video to go along with the first single by boyfriend Jack Antonoff’s new band, Bleachers.
In “I Wanna Get Better,” Antonoff plays a therapist listening to Hannah Horvath-esque patients talk about their problems (memorable lines include: “my parents gave me this dog so I’d get an abortion…he’s an abortion dog.”). As the name of the song suggests, they want to get better.
