Note: This story contains spoilers for the new film "Don't Worry Darling." - - - In conversation with fellow actress-director Maggie Gyllenhaal for Interview magazine, Olivia Wilde asked, "You know the incels?" She was explaining to Gyllenhaal how she based a character in her latest film, "Don't Worry Darling," on Jordan Peterson, a professor-turned-proselytizer whom Wilde described as "this pseudointellectual hero to the incel community." Gyllenhaal responded with a concise, "No." She did not know the incels. But after a single viewing of "Don't Worry Darling" - an actual film released Friday, not just a vehicle for star-studded scandals - it would be hard to maintain this ignorance. Based on a story by Carey Van Dyke, Shane Van Dyke and screenwriter Katie Silberman, the thriller follows a 1950s housewife as she descends into what men around her decry as madness, despite it actually being a state of enlightenment. The dysfunction she becomes suspicious of in her once-perfect … [Read more...] about Let’s talk about the big reveal in ‘Don’t Worry Darling’

Ross Brawn hopes Mick Schumacher’s Formula 1 career continues – whether still at Haas or with another team. At the age of 23, Schumi junior already looks to be at a crossroads, Haas boss Guenther Steiner openly discussing in the media that the team are deliberating whether to replace him, potentially with a more experienced driver. Schumacher failing to score points in his debut campaign was no surprise considering how uncompetitive the Haas car was, but this year the German recorded back-to-back top-10 finishes in Britain and Austria. He still finds himself outscored 22-12 by team-mate Kevin Magnussen having crashed too often for Steiner’s liking in the opening third of the campaign, but has won the internal head-to-head battle in seven of the last nine races. That suggests Schumacher is responding to the challenge of knowing his future is under threat, with Steiner having highlighted a lack of consistency . Brawn will naturally side with the son of the seven-time … [Read more...] about Ross Brawn: Mick Schumacher ‘deserves to take next step’ in Formula 1 career
In the round-up: George Russell says he is far more interested in winning races than finishing as runner-up in the world championship. In brief Russell wants wins, not second in championship Advert | Become a Supporter & go ad-free Russell, whose best championship position in F1 is 15th, lies fourth in the standings with six races to go, 16 points behind second-placed Charles Leclerc . However taking that runner-up spot “doesn’t mean a huge amount,” he admitted. “Nobody remembers who finishes second in the championship. “If you’re given a choice between winning a couple of races this year and finishing outside the top three, or winning no races and finishing second, I would choose the race wins. “We’ll take it, we’ll definitely take it for the team, obviously we’re going to try and beat Ferrari in the championship but for me I’m here to win and unfortunately that’s a bit out of reach in terms of the championship.” No Pau Grand Prix for Euroformula in … [Read more...] about RaceFans Round-up: Russell wants wins more than second in points
This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 5 The CIA Museum covers the intelligence agency's long history - from spying on the Soviets to the Argo mission in Iran - but the latest addition is practically ripped from the headlines: a model of Ayman al-Zawahiri's compound in Kabul used weeks earlier to plan the U.S. drone strike that killed the al-Qaeda leader. The model is part of the newly renovated exhibition hall located deep inside CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. Like the NSA's Wall of Spies museum in Bethesda, Md., the CIA Museum isn't open to the public. But it's not exactly top secret either, welcoming CIA employees, official guests, foreign partners, potential recruits - and, early on a Saturday morning, a handful of carefully observed reporters with old-school notepads and pens (electronics are banned). There are plenty of fun gadgets to see, like a polygraph machine in a briefcase and a communication … [Read more...] about The CIA renovated its museum. The public still can’t go see it.
Zak Brown has said Formula 1 is already popular in the States even without an F1 driver or a team solely based in the country. Formula 1 has enjoyed a huge boost in popularity in the United States of late with new owners Liberty Media seemingly targeting that demographic. A record three races will take place on American soil in 2023 with the Las Vegas Grand Prix set to follow the Miami Grand Prix onto the calendar. But still, there remains a lack of an American presence on the track. Haas label themselves as an American team with a headquarters in Kannapolis but a lot of their work is undergone at their UK and Italian bases. Indeed, there has not been an American driver in F1 for seven years and following Colton Herta’s collapsed move to AlphaTauri , that does not look like changing anytime soon. Following the breakdown of the deal, F1 was criticised for being too European centric with IndyCar driver Graham Rahal claiming it was “elitist.” In a tweet he said: “They … [Read more...] about Zak Brown: ‘F1 does not need an American team or driver to be popular in the US’
