Re: Reactions

This is the first time the last two supporting actor winners were nominated in the same year. It happened twice before in the Best Actress category - Fontaine and Garson in 1943, Jones and Bergman in 1945 with Garson, Jones and Bergman making it three in a row repeating in 1945. Back in 1935 all 4 ...

Not that he didn't look like he was, but was Robards really dead when he made Magnolia?

And - Olivier and Plowright had also a 53 years gap between Wuthering Heights and Enchanted April.

Now all we need is for Mia Farrow to be nominated so she and Sinatra can break the record.

Woodward and Newman had a 45 years span while Coronin and Tandy had 47 (Tandy was nominated again for the tomatoes movie).

Re: Reactions

Unless I'm forgetting someone, Sam Elliott and Katharine Ross now hold the record for the longest stretch for acting nominations between spouses - 51 years, breaking the 45 year record of Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy that had held for 28 years. Actually, no. Humphrey Bogart was nominated for Casab...

Re: National Society of Film Critics

That said, I can't say I loved The Rider the way so many critics (and some folks here) have. I found it beautifully shot, with rich portraits of the South Dakota landscape, and full of humane individual moments. And the sense of verisimilitude is very strong -- here the casting of non-actors as ess...

Re: Interim Thoughts on the Races

The argument that Mahershala Ali is shoehorned into this category because he's black and therefore seen by his film's producers as subservient to his white co-star being campaigned as lead goes away when you are aware that it was Ali himself who started the campaign. I have two words for you: Inter...

Re: Burning reviews - MAJOR SPOILERS

One of things more striking about Chang-dong Lee's films, at least all of his films that I have seen, is the social commentary that is intertwined with the narrative. The divide between rich and poor, the divide between city and rural people , the South Korean obsession with appearance and plastic ...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

A lame film. Watchable, maybe, but very lame. It reminds me of watching La Vie en Rose, being a lifelong fan of Edith Piaf – the film was no good, but yes, once the first few notes of Non je ne regrette rien, or Milord or the title song were heard I was conditioned to be emotionally responsive, and ...

Re: Roma reviews

Films portraying maids exacting revenge upon their employers were more believable portrayals than the ones presented in Roma. See: The Maids, Sister My Sister & Murderous Maids, though to be fair the focus of those films were the maids, not the petty bourgeois. I'll add La Cérémonie, but Chabro...

Re: Roma reviews

With Cuarón I think that (if this is as biographical as he says) we could say that it is a pity that his childhood was so privileged, so much that he had to resort to his film's central figure to get a story with the possibility of resonance. Bang on. Love this observation. Having said that, I must...

Re: Roma reviews

I don't know what I'm going to end up considering the best film of the year. What about Burning, or Shoplifters? You do seem to have Roma in the mix, why not consider these two very high profile films? Since you don't make a distinction between English speaking films and "foreign" ones, (...

Re: List of submissions to the 91st Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film

I happen to have had a Cleo growing up and this film nails the dynamic our family had with her and it really struck a chord with me. I don't appreciate condescension (no matter how hesitant it might be). Would you consider trying coming out of your emotional and sociological comfort zone and consid...
