Lily Allen, Sheezus!
UK glamor girl turned mother of two upstages Stubb’s on Sunday
DAILY Music  September 12, 2014, by William Harries Graham
"...UK pop star Lily Allen brings glamor to Stubb’s Sunday. Stylish, outspoken, the 29-year-old singer remains a reliable hitmaker behind “The Fear,” “Hard Out Here,” and “F*** You.” Married to Sam Cooper, a builder and half brother of Tarka Cordell, Allen phoned in to say she’s “thrilled” to be back out on the road behind her third LP, May’s Sheezus...."

Lily Tomlin, Citizen of Austin
The comedian on our town, Ann Richards, and getting hitched
DAILY Arts  February 27, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...For Lily Tomlin, who appears at the Paramount Theatre on Friday, a trip to Austin is practically a homecoming. In the Eighties, she did an extended run of her first stage success and workshopped her second; bonded with Ann Richards and Liz Carpenter, both of whom shared her birthday; and even bought some land on the Pedernales...."

Ana Lily Amirpour on Her New Film The Bad Batch
Cannibals, cult leaders, and friendship
Screens Story  June 22, 2017, by Lars Nilsen
"...Writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour, whose first feature was the 2014 Iranian vampire, spaghetti Western A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, comes on pretty strong, both as an artist and as a personality – in a good way. She has as clear a vision as you are likely to find among genre filmmakers today, and an idiosyncratic recall of the films that form her canon..."

Full Exposure: Lily Burana's "Strip City'
From Anchorage, Alaska, to New Jersey to Tijuana, Mexico, Lily Burana takes her readers inside the glitziest and seediest strip clubs in the nation in Strip City: A Stripper's Farewell Journey Across America. But Burana, who will be at BookPeople on Monday, October 1, at 7pm, is also armed with a good deal of feminist theory, research, and unflinching opinions about the sex-worker trade.

Eagle vs Shark
Like Napoleon Dynamite, Eagle vs Shark is a little wisp of a movie, a lightweight feature loaded with montage and hung on the multidimensional performance of Loren Horsley as Lily.

Film Review  July 20, 2007, by Marrit Ingman
"...But it’s gentler and more lyrical, with angular cinematography interwoven with surreal stop-motion sequences about the lives of discarded apple cores who find love together. Lily (Horsley) is a fast-food cashier smitten with Jarrod (Clement), a grandiose gaming geek bent on revenge against a bully from high school – so smitten that she meekly joins him for a week back home with his family..."

Film Review  February 9, 2001, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Davies (Distant Voices, Still Lives) paints this world with a dark and gloomy palette and treats the characters with an ascetic touch, allowing them few expressions or interior insights. Set in 1905, The House of Mirth tells the story of two years in the life of Lily Bart (Anderson), a young socialite at the height of her charms who becomes caught in an inevitable downward spiral brought on by the fickle rewards of trying to play by society's rules..."

"...Both tales aim to open up the private world of laotong or “sames” – girls who are bound together for eternity, as per Chinese custom.

Film Review  October 8, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...Notably, the film has been theatrically released and available on DVD overseas, having been shot in 2006 and then abruptly orphaned stateside by home studio Paramount for reasons unknown. Academy Award-winner and former Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre ingenue Zellweger plays Emily Jenkins, a social worker assigned to the hellishly problematic case of 10-year-old Lily Sullivan (Ferland, of Terry Gilliam's Tideland)..."

"...Three things that are not surprising about a conversation with the brilliant actress Lily Tomlin -- One: She laughs. Ever since Tomlin registered on the national consciousness as a cast member of Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, she has charmed audiences with her comedic gifts -- her playfulness, her exuberant physicality, her vocal flair..."

Pan
Peter Pan origin story goes off the plank

Film Review  October 9, 2015, by Kimberley Jones
"...Barrie’s beloved characters by showing us how an orphaned Peter (Miller) first arrives in Neverland, befriends a pre-captaining Hook (Hedlund, wandering in from a Saturday-matinee Western), and battles the despotic pirate Blackbeard (Jackman), who’s seeking eternal life through the dwindling resource of fairy pixie dust. Trotting out old favorites without tracing any of the original’s magic, the film roll-calls Tinker Bell, Smee, a premonitory tick-tock, and Tiger Lily, who’s played by the bizarrely miscast Rooney Mara; even Disney, historically not exactly a progressive company, had the decency not to draw the Indian princess as white..."

"...In need of a lesson, Darrin heads home to his aunt’s funeral in Montecarlo, Georgia, where the town busybody (Richardson) keeps everyone in line, and a sign at the train station promises "taxi and chicken." A wacky wrinkle in Aunt Sally’s will requires Darrin to direct the local Baptist church choir, and comic hijinks ensue en route to the Big Competition: an American Idol-esque tryout montage, a drunk redneck organist named Scooter, and Rue McClanahan, who gets one good line. Concomitantly, Darrin falls for Lily (Knowles), a sultry single mom..."

"...A parody of martial arts chopsocky flicks that apparently took the slow boat over, this might have been funny 10 or 15 years back, but these days it's just insipid and unrelentingly boring. Stealing a page from Woody Allen's What's Up Tiger Lily?, Oedekerk has eased his way back into the director's chair by – heh, heh – buying a previously shot Mandarin kung-fu film (1977's Tiger and Crane Fist) and digitally inserting himself and a host of (generally well done) CGI critters and characters inside the original picture..."

starstarstar
Film Review  October 2, 1992, by Pamela Bruce
"...Singer also frames these performances and interviews with archival footage of such trailblazing comediennes as Gracie Allen, Fanny Brice, Mae West, Carol Burnett and Lucille Ball, among others, as a historical reference point to reflect the evolution of women in comedy: from the objectified, passive pie-in-the-face, soaked-with-a-seltzer-bottle-status of decades past to the bolder, more outspoken, less self-deprecatory stance of the present. Yet, it is in the historical perspective that Singer's film hits a weak point, for she fails to recognize (perhaps out of ignorance or the inaccessibility of archival material) the historical significance of such comediennes as Thelma Todd and ZaSu Pitts (who were probably the first successful female comedy team) from the Hal Roach farces of the 1930s, Imogene Coca, Joan Rivers and Totie Fields (both of whom, along with Phyllis Diller, established themselves as stand-up comics on The Ed Sullivan Show during the 1960s) as well as Lily Tomlin's hilarious gender-bending routines from the 1970s..."

Thus it was that the Chronicle's in-world correspondent, Memory Harker, met with SNOOPYbrown Zamboni (Paffendorf), Valtoid Pixie (Williamson), and Jade Lily (Morris) in the top-floor lounge of the Electric Sheep Co.'s skyscraper headquarters, on a winter's evening with a virtual wind blowing gently through the pixelated trees, in order to capture this (judiciously edited for coherence and space) transcript...."
