Re: Best Cinematography 2015

An easy vote for Carol with Sicario the only other nominee worth considering. Conspicuous by their absence were Bridge of Spies and Ex Machina. Brooklyn would have been my fifth nominee.

Re: At Eternity's Gate reviews

This one has a big hurdle with me in the fact that Dafoe is nearly thirty years older than Van Gogh was when he died. I try not to get too wound up over casting but I'm not sure that I can get past this. I get more wound up over things like 65-year-old Mary Steenburgen, 72-year-old Diane Keaton, 72...

Re: Boy Erased reviews

It doesn't read like a strong endorsement of the film.

Indiewire is even more down on it.

Thanks, Miguel. I just watched it - it's a huge improvement.

Re: First Man reviews

I originally thought this might be one of the year's best films, but the low-key trailer had me lower my expectations. The Variety review in particular gives me renewed hope. The Wrap review is interesting as well, especially in its appreciation of Claire Foy. https://www.thewrap.com/first-man-film-...

Congratulations, Greg, and good luck in the general election. This will be an interesting one to watch.

Re: Best Cinematography 2014

A Most Wanted Man , Nightcrawler and Snowpiercer are my omissions. The actual nominees were all strong. Unbroken was oversold as a directorial breakthrough for Angelina Jolie - it wasn't, but Roger Deakins' cinematography is once again flawless. Mr. Turner is probably the best photographed of all o...

R.I.P. Dewey Martin

1950's star and one-time husband of Peggy Lee died in April at 94, but due to his reclusive nature his death went unreported.

Re: R.I.P. John McCain

It's fitting, I suppose, that he died of the same disease nine years to the day as Ted Kennedy. Apparently Sanders and Kelly prepared a White House statement for Trump to sign calling McCain a hero, but he refused to sign it, sending out instead his lame tweet that his thoughts and prayers are with ...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Definitely a star on the rise and, yes, he does very much evoke Bobby Kennedy.

He's been on the right side of every issue including universal one-payer healthcare but not necessarily as an extension of Medicare as we know it.

I'll be very disappointed (again!) if he doesn't defeat Cruz.

Re: R.I.P. Barbara Harris

I found her annoying in A Thousand Clowns , but loved her in Nashville , found her annoying again in Family Plot , but loved her in Freaky Friday . She was always a joy to see in the bit parts she played in later films such as Peggy Sue Got Married . She had a glorious singing voice, too bad her mov...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I don't know her and I don't know him, but his story sounds more plausible. I never heard of Asia Argento before the #MeToo Movement and then only as Anthony Bourdain's girlfriend. I thought she was some minor actress. I had no idea she was Dario Argento's daughter or that she was a successful actre...
