Valerie Solanas Died for Your Sins: Scumbag Review

(Every week, we’re going to get the discussion going about American Horror Story: Cult by answering one important question: who is the main villain of the episode?)

Everything changed in episode 7 of American Horror Story: Cult. Presenting its overarching story in three acts: Ally’s crumbling sanity, a closer look at Kai Anderson’s (Evan Peters) inner circle, and now, Anderson’s climb to the top. It seems only fitting that the latest episode, titled “Valerie Solanas Died for Your Sins: Scumbag,” would shift its focus to a brand new character.

The infamous feminist activist who shot Andy Warhol, Ms. Valerie Solanas (played wonderfully by Lena Dunham) had finally arrived. Her energetic introduction to the series played wonderfully into the increasing distrust within Kai’s group, helping to set up one heck of a bloody battle of the sexes for the remaining three episodes.

steven soderbergh rejection

If you’re struggling with job rejection after job rejection in your 20s, don’t worry. Rome wasn’t built in a day, nor was Steven Soderbergh an indie darling director immediately after he joined the film industry. It took work, and rejection by one of the top movie studios of the day.

In April 1984, Soderbergh was an aspiring 21-year-old filmmaker scraping by as a game show scorer and a freelance film editor. But in an effort to break into Hollywood, he decided to send a demo reel of short films shot on Super 8mm to Lucasfilm. They rejected him. And Soderbergh still has the letter.
