Re: A Wrinkle In Time

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

The Kindergarten Teacher/Puzzle/The Wife These three films are worth mentioning in a group simply because none of them are of any significance and all of their leading actresses (Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kelly Macdonald & Glenn Close) are in contention for a possible best actress nomination. Actually ...

Re: Documentary Feature Watch

Three Identical Strangers has a U.S. release date later this month and has been picked up by CNN for TV broadcasting so it looks like it's not going to disappear any time soon. The Sydney Film Festival usually adds repeat screenings over the three days after the festival has officially concluded. A...

Re: Best Cinematography 2004

House of the Flying Daggers was an easy choice. The others were typical Academy nominees that took the places of more interesting work such as Collateral (quite unlike anything seen before it), Citizen Dog, Trilogy The Weeping Meadow & Downfall.

Re: Foreign Language Film Watch

I've seen a few films in recent days which are highly likely to be representing their respective countries. Japan - Shoplifters I've already stated, sight unseen, that Shoplifters after its Cannes win is on it's way to Oscar victory but after seeing the film I must retract that statement. It will al...

Re: Best Cinematography 2003

Voted for City of Gold for which the photography plays such an integral part of the films success.

The other nominees were pretty blah.

Omissions include In the Cut, Strayed, A Tale of Two Sisters, Last Life in the Universe & Lost in Translation.

Re: Congratulations Dame Emma Thompson

I'd always thought Emma Thompson had knocked one back but I could find any evidence on the internet of that. Pointless 'awards' really, pretty much looked down by most us living in the 'colonies'. But if she's happy to accept good on her. Speaking of Dames, I saw Tea with the Dames directed by Roger...

R.I.P. Kira Muratova

If one good thing can come from the death of Kira Muratova is that some enterprising US and/or UK distributor will restore and release her films. Haven't seen anything she has done myself but the has been on my radar for sometime now. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/kira-muratova-dead-renowne...
