Re: Best Cinematography 1993

Three of the films on the list have outstanding cinematography - Farewell, My Concubine, The Piano and Schindler's List. I'm surprised The Age of Innocence (Michael Balhaus) and The Remains of the Day (Tony Pierce Roberts) missed out. Also very good were The Scent of Green Papaya (Benoît Delhomme), ...

Re: The Shape of Water reviews

Watched this again post-Oscars (and needed to take my mind off some things...) In some screenwriting courses I’ve taken, we’ve learned of “The Pinch.” It’s rough 45 mins into a 120 movie (adjust accordingly for whatever length), and it’s described as a new plot point that carries through the ending...

Re: 90th Oscars: Adapted Screenplay

There is one thing that struck me about Ivory's speech. He thanked both Ruth Jhabvala and Ismail Merchant and mentioned both of them as "life partners," not business partners. I know Ivory had a romantic relationship with Merchant. Did he also have one with Jhabvala? I don't think so but ...

Re: 90th Oscars: Ceremony & Pre-Show Discussion

I'm sorry, Reza, but you're wrong as usual. Since you're not an American and don't live in America, you can't possibly see or understand the sea change that is happening. It takes ripples and I've seen it in the environment I'm in. There's some backlash, of course, but I've seen a genuine effort to...

Absolutely true. Should have stuck to my original predictions. Kept changing them around. Did badly in the end.

Re: 90th Oscars: Ceremony & Pre-Show Discussion

The best moments were the two "at last" victories for James Ivory and Roger Deakins. The In Memoriam section was good. Pleasantly surprised to see that Idrissa Ouedraogo & Seijun Suzuki were deservedly included. I thought the actors they selected to show a short clip from were all wel...

Re: 90th Oscars: Ceremony & Pre-Show Discussion

The Original BJ wrote Why did Emma Stone present Best Director rather than Best Actor? To not draw attention to Casey Affleck not presenting Best Actress. It’s not like she should be penalized. I thought it was a good call. Good call certainly but the utter hypocricy of it all is equally jarring. I...

Turn it off then, Reza. Your constant bitching about the push for equality is degrading, demeaning, and disappointing. Dude it's over kill now. WE GET THE FRIGGING MESSAGE.
