Re: Best Cinematography 2008

Changeling is one of those odd, difficult to explain nominations. It's not that it's undeserving, it's just that, why is this the one movie to get a cinematography nomination, out of a director-cinematographer collaboration that ran from Blood Work through The 15:17 to Paris ? (Stern isn't cinemato...

Re: R.I.P. Robert Wolders

I enjoyed the campy "Interval" in which he co-starred with Merle Oberon.

Re: New Academy Members

I wonder if the Goya or Cesar award committes also induct voting members from Hollywood's elite circle?

Re: New Academy Members

Maybe they simply didn't know who they were inviting. As far as I know, it still takes two recommendations and a panel vote before the invitation goes out. Maybe two impassioned Academy members suggested her and the actors panel, some of whom vaguely recalled the name, looked at the two credits, sa...

Re: The VCR / DVR / Streaming Alert Thread

The hard to see Navajo (1952), nominated for best cinematography (black & white), is available on YouTube. It looks like it taken from a VHS tape that it is very good condition, though what little dialogue this is is out of synch. Most of the film is told in voice over. Navajo was also nominate...

Re: Best Cinematography 2007

It will probably strike some of you as blasphemy, but I hardly remember anything about [i]The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford You've done well to have forgotten this painfully dull film - took me four excruciating days to finish watching it just to see Casey Affleck's nominat...

Tab Hunter's book is well worth reading. A solid companion piece to the documentary you mentioned.

Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

Tom Jones (1963) Tony Richardson 9/10 In the Mood for Love (2000) Kar-Wai Wong 7/10 Interesting to see you gave the Wong a 7 - which many think is a masterpiece. While Richardson's film has gone down in many people's estimation which got a 10 from you. I agree with your rating for the former. Haven...

Re: Unseen Foreign Film nominees

Finally caught up with Spain's first foreign film Oscar winner - "Volver a empezar". Johann Pachelbel's "Canon in D Major" & Cole Porter's "Begin the Beguine" are both to this film what "Lara's Theme" is to Dr Zhivago. Was it the music that won over Academ...

Re: Halfway Through 2018

Hannah seems to have been pretty much been a so show everywhere, so hopefully a release will emerge sometime in the near future. Charlotte Rampling's presents is the only reason I'm interested in seeing it. I thought "Hannah" had been released in quite a few countries - according to IMDb....

Re: Halfway Through 2018

I had two overall thoughts while writing this post. The first is a reiteration of a thought I had months ago, that the first half of 2018 has been unusually solid. Certainly not as exciting as the back half of any year, but hardly anemic for films worth seeing. The second thought I had is that my c...

Re: R.I.P. Liliane Montevecchi

As if this week weren't grisly enough, my wife's good fried Liliane Montevecchi died today. This is likely a bigger loss for me than this board in general. The Broadway-focused among you might know she won a Tony for Nine, and was nominated again for Grand Hotel, both of which she did alongside my ...
