Re: Evaluating the nominees

Rules, rules, rules... And judgement. All the time. One of my dearest, life long friends is right wing. She lives on the occupied territories. And she has a great sense of humor. When I texted her I was going to have my surgery, she asked me what was the hospital I was going to be in so she could v...

Re: Evaluating the nominees

The identity of the person whose point of view is there for us to experience has a significance. The fact that a director is not a native residence of a country his/her film describe is not necessarily wrong - having an alien eye can be a major artistic benefit. Not all films have to be like Lady Bi...

Re: Evaluating the nominees

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (At least Dogville's fundamental misunderstanding of America was played as parable) I guess I needed an American to clearly verbalize to me my basic discomfort with this film - although it seems you were more antagonized by it than I was. Well, one can misu...

Re: Evaluating the nominees

Thank you - for what you've said and for actually saying it (now, that's a response that will make passive/aggressive Goddess Cyril Woodcock proud).

Evaluating the nominees

Way too often, I come out, after seeing a new film, wondering why it was made. It has a lot to do with the fact that films, regardless of whose vision they manifest, are a collective effort and they require a lot of money to be made. So, it seems, when it comes to films, especially those who are con...

Re: Oscar-winning performances directed by women or POC

Keep using "colour" instead of "color", Reza, and you will most certainly be officially declared persona non grata in Trump's America.

Re: Oscar-winning performances directed by women or POC

From an American taxonomy perspective, specifically the census bureau's guidelines, there is race and ethnicity. Race is essential black, white, Asian, etc. Ethnicity is Hispanic or Not Hispanic. Thus, Guillermo del Toro would be classified by American census bureau guidelines white Hispanic. He is...

Re: Oscar-winning performances directed by women or POC

I guess the bottom line is that this is about people who are, or would have been (had they live there) discriminated against in the USA.

Re: Oscar-winning performances directed by women or POC

So say "someone who is not a white person from Europe and any part of the world that was once colonized by Great Britain".

Re: 2017 Oscar Nominations

Ok, Marco. Let’s talk sex. Or the lack of it. Or the fear of it. Your approach is very enviable. You celebrate sex – conceptually as well as actively. You seem to find its complexity, if not always easy than mostly satisfyingly challengeable. So you are, apparently, rather resilient. And that’s grea...

Re: 2017 Oscar Nominations

(As you see, I left out Gandhi, since I have a hunch Reza may not share the romanticized Western take on him). Dude your hunch here is very wrong. Do not share that dewey-eyed take on Gandhi at all. This is exactly what I've said. I think. I said I believed you probably DON'T share the romanticized...

Re: 2017 Oscar Nominations

One is allowed to criticize #MeToo. One is allowed to use historical analogies while doing it. But compering it to McCarthyism or calling it a witch hunt, two historical phenomenon which, along the Inquisition, were about a mighty institution coming after relatively powerless individuals or particul...
