Re: Roma reviews

This is a very interesting take on Roma by philosopher Slavoj Žižek.

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...

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. ...
