It takes a village to make a quality documentary. That’s why we are looking forward to this November’s FilmRise release The Secret Life of Lance Letscher, a deeply personal and psychological portrait of internationally known, Austin–based visual artist Lance Letscher.
We like that through intimate explorations of artist Lance Letscher’s past traumas and triumphs, this new film, The Secret Life of Lance Letscher, offers an in-depth look at the artist’s thoughts on the creative process, the subconscious, and spirituality. We also like that the documentary marks our...more

When we were invited to an advance Fox Searchlight Pictures studio sneak peek screening of the new fall film, Battle of the Sexes, starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell. Wow, what a time machine trip back to the hippie dippie 70’s that seems more like a time warp than a dewy-eyed look at the past.
In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s World #1 Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the Battle of the Sexes....more

Let’s face it, literally...we’re all challenged by the elements that can reach our face that aren’t positive. That’s why there’s a revolutionary approach to skin defense: the Chantecaille Anti-Pollution skincare collection.
It reigns in the power of stem cells and skin barrier-strengthening extracts to shield the skin from chemical and radiation-absorbing pollutants, soot, smog and heavy metals that can be found in the air. The pollutants accelerate aging, damage the skin and cause allergic reactions and inflammation. According to the Chantecaille skincare experts, when used...more
