David Suchet has been playing Belgian detective Hercule Poirot since 1989. After a 13-season run, Poirot, the mystery series based on Agatha Christie’s novels, has come to an end. The series is now on Acorn TV, streaming online. David Bianculli reflects on the long-running show:

But since these are, absolutely, the last TV episodes featuring Suchet as Poirot, they do provide a satisfying conclusion to a very long-running viewing experience. The actor has grown into the role, sporting wrinkles to match the wisdom, and perfecting the twinkle in his eye whenever, as the detective himself would put it, Poirot has finally solved the case as only Poirot can. And think of it: The actors of the current movie Boyhood have gotten lots of praise for filming and playing their roles over a 12-year period. David Suchet, as Hercule Poirot, has done the same thing for twice as long.
He’s done it so long, in fact, that he’s ending his run on a medium that didn’t even exist when he started. Wrap your little grey cells around that…

Reina Gossett, a Black trans woman who is an artist and writer doing important work with the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, along with Sasha Wortzel, are fundraising to produce the film Happy Birthday, Marsha. This film is one telling the rich histories and experiences of the often erased trans women of colour and friends, Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, from Stonewall. The film will capture their histories, choices and lives that lead up to Stonewall; the reality of friends facing street harassment, police harassment/abuse and racism/sexism/transmisogyny in general. 

As noted on their Kickstarter page (which has a short video as well):

It’s been 45 years since the Stonewall rebellion yet the leading role that street queens, trans women of color and gender non-conforming people had during the riots hasn’t received the recognition it deserves. By making Happy Birthday, Marsha! we are seeking to change that.

As of this post, they are at $23,877, but the project will only be funded if they reach the goal of at least $25,000 by Friday, August 15, 2014 9:59 AM! That’s only $1,123 left!
