Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I know that some here won't agree - they CAN'T - but like it or not ideas can also be judge (by many) based on those who most passionately represent them - and undertandably so. A movement is defined not only by the principles it adheres to, but also by the people who lead it. And there's always so...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

In the meantime Asia Argento has been fired from the Italian version of X-Factor, which is ironic not only because nothing has been proved yet, but most importantly because in this country (Italy) what she may have done with this Jimmy Bennett would be perfectly legal. I would never do it, but like ...

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

Volver a empezar / Begin the Beguine / To Begin Again (José Luis Garci, 1982) 5/10 Warm bittersweet memory piece is a bore and still managed to win the Oscar for best foreign film (Spain's first). An old man (Antonio Ferrandis) returns to his old hometown Gijon after going into exile during the Spa...

Re: Kicking Off the Fall Season

About 20 minutes before the end some of the audience members, I suspect a group that were together, started openly mocking the film verbally and laughing at it. As by that time I was just basically waiting around for the wretched thing to end I didn't say anything to them. Neither did anyone else. ...

Re: Kicking Off the Fall Season

The other prime hopeful is Toni Collette for Hereditary, about whom I’ll be able to speak more knowledgeably next week when the film hits Netflix. Purely from yards off: Collette’s personal notices seem stellar, but she’ll be fighting genre-aversion and some apparently visceral audience revulsion (...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

Given all the recent Asia Argento publicity I will take this opportunity to recommend a film that she directed and co-wrote which I understand to have autobiographical elements titled Incompresa (Misunderstood) from 2014. Argento herself has an unbilled small role in the film. It's on Amazon Prime....

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

In Italy she's very famous, though I'd say more for her private and quite eventful life than for her work as an actress and as a director. As an actress, she's always been more an interesting presence than a true talent, and as a director her movies, while dealing with strong issues, have always bee...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I hope that the latest news about Asia Argento aren't true. She still hasn't commented on then. A few months ago I was viciously attacked by some here (and, I must admit, defended by others). I was called pro-rape and some proclaimed that I should be banned from this board. It was, needless to say, ...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

Question: Is A Quiet Place a good movie? Answer: Has Michael Bay ever made a good movie? No, Hollywood's crappiest successful filmmaker didn't direct it, but he produced it. John Krasinksi directed it from a script by a couple of guys from the MTV school of writing. Krasinski's direction of wife Em...

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

But yes, what sealed the deal for me was the disrespect to Jeanne Moreau. Unforgivable. It only reinforces my stand that the Oscars should leave world cinema alone, since they are only capable of randomly hand it meager crumbs without ever fully recognize its true merit. Leave her out of your In Me...
