R.I.P. Stéphane Audran

She was classy, elegant and subtle. Her performances in Chabrol’s The Butcher and Babette’s Feast are two for the ages.

Re: Oscar Family Photo?

Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty are presumably presenting Best Picture again. I have a feeling they will somehow comedically "atone" for last year before they present. Indeed. This will be extremely exciting. Remember when in past recent ceremonies the Best Picture envelope was about to be...

Re: Oscar Family Photo?

It would be so nice if Jack Nicholson appeared again. His last showing up was when he and Michelle Obama gave Best Picture to Argo back in 2013. I love him presenting at the Oscars. What about Olivia de Havilland? The oldest living legend. Julie Andrews, Sidney Poitier, Glenda Jackson!, Cloris Leach...

Re: It's Trivia Time

Every year Frances McDormand was nominated or won, upsets or shockers occurred.

1988: Kevin Kline, Geena Davis, even Jodie Foster.
1996: Juliette Binoche, Sling Blade.
2000: Steven Soderbergh, Marcia Gay Harden.
2005: Crash

Let’s hope for some more of those on Sunday.

Re: Your Oscar Ballot - Best Film

Beautiful year for films. This is my favorite Best Picture lineup since 1975. Deeply loved my top choice. Second is a great film. Three to six are truly exhilarating, unforgettable cinematic experiences in their own distinctive ways. Seven and eight are perfectly solid craft, and the last one is not...

Uri wrote:Another very non-American film for you, CalWilliam, is Katherine Brieiiat's A ma soeur!, or Fat Girl. Think about an R, or rather X rated version of the two French sisters from CMBYN.


Thank you, Uri, I’ll try to find it.

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

I always like reading whatever you have to say about anything, and I’m glad your overall view of the film is good. Could you mention some of other those “summer of discoveries” titles? Not the obvious ones, of course, but some more obscure films that are worth discovering or mean something to you. ...

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

(Were this movie taking place in 2017, obviously certain elements would be different, but I'd honestly find it a lot less believable that a guy like Oliver would fall for Elio at all.) Why..? :D I don't have time to reply to any single absurdity which this thread is full of. You guys should get a l...

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

My God, I loved this film so much. I have nothing of interest to say but a few subjective remarks. It was just a landmark experience to behold, a deeply moving and intellectual one. I have read the novel, and James Ivory has definitely improved it. What an extraordinary, exquisite screenplay. It’s a...

Re: It's Trivia Time

Every best Adapted Screenplay winner was nominated for Best Picture, with the exception of The Bad and the Beautiful, Sling Blade and Gods and Monsters. Fortunately, that clearly pushes James Ivory ahead as practically a lock to prevail. Logan, Molly’s Game and The Disaster Artist don’t have a chanc...

Re: Pre-Christmas Look at the Top Races

One thing I have thought about in relation to Sally Hawkins chances of winning Best Actress is, as far as I know, everyone nominated for Best Actress for playing a mute character, Jane Wyman, Marlee Matlin, and Holly Hunter, has won. Does anyone know if there were other Best Actress nominations for...

Re: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri reviews

I loved reading your discussion. When the film began I was alreadly deeply committed listening to the delightfully beautiful ''The Last Rose of Summer'' from the opera ''Martha'' by Friedrich von Flotow, the Thomas Moore poem that became a traditional Irish song. Its lyrics deals with one of the mai...
