Maybe we're missing something here. Adrienne Shelly was in, like, Hal Hartley movies, not . . . oh. Oh, the article is about a protest by activists who maintain that "[Shelly's] death could have been avoided if the United States stringently enforced its immigration laws to stop human smuggling and the hiring of illegal workers." We don't know what's more awful, those assholes or the headline that conjures up images of Saana Lathan trapped in a space-creature's dripping jaws. Or us for pointing it out. A three-way tie, we suppose.

If you came of age concurrent to the rise of "independent" film you probably remember Adrienne Shelly. She was the muse of the early Hal Hartley pictures; she was absolutely adorable in Joel Hershman's criminally underseen Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me; she was pretty much on any soi-disant intellectual guy's top five crush list.
