Wayman Wong David Lynch already made his quirky movie about an aspiring actress in L.A.; it’s called ”Mulholland Drive.” Aku Max Mulholland Drive and La La Land are among my all time favorites!!! This edit made my day! Thanks john smith Oh fuck! When the trailer is better than the BP winner. I want to watch this film so bad! john smith “Mulholland Drive” was a mind fuck of a film and master director at his very best. LLL, on the other hand is really ordinary. Bryce Forestieri Burn it all down. Rodrigo Off topic, but Get Out is getting fantastic reviews so far! Bring on the new season. 🙂 Idle Time This trailer reminds me of when I first heard of the movie called La La Land and how it will take the Oscars by storm, I thought the title had to be ironic. Sunny on the surface, but a dark underbelly. But it turned out not to be! It’s earnest and flat. andrevellozo So good. CherryValance That’s very good. I hope Sunday night when Damien Chazelle is up there collecting his Oscar, the AD faithful join me in remembering that David Lynch ain’t got none. Idle Time Brutally honest #2. I don’t agree w/ everything she (?) says, but I like her rational tone. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/lists/brutally-honest-ballot-2-la-la-land-felt-a-little-light-barry-jenkins-is-a-poet-978273 KG ^^ This. CherryValance He/she has good reasons for their choices. I also like that they skipped the ones where they didn’t see all the nominees. I have a hard time understanding how a person wouldn’t understand THE LOBSTER or even ARRIVAL. CherryValance One chants out between two worlds… glimmer thanks, i would have totally missed this article !!! 🙂 glimmer actually, this how the film was supposed to be. but it was re-edited to help it chances during award/festival season. 😉 Idle Time The last thing she said was rather sad. 🙁 Wayman Wong I’m the opposite. To me, ”La La Land” is extraordinary, and ”Mulholland” ain’t. JP Yeah… Berry Jenkins, Dennis Villenueve and Kenneth Lonergan all have a vast and bigger resumee of contributions to the film art than David Lynch. JP Yeah… Berry Jenkins, Dennis Villenueve and Kenneth Lonergan all have a vast and bigger resumee of contributions to the film art than DL. Ferdinand The subtitled unclear dialogue part wasn’t funny (it just feels like a really dull mock of Lynch’s style and there’s a certain technique that as far as I’ve understood Lynch used in Twin Peaks to make that sound and clearly it was not used since the words didn’t make any sense here) but otherwise I found it to be mildly amusing Bryce Forestieri The Guardian’s measured take on Sunday night. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/feb/23/la-la-lands-inevitable-oscars-win-is-a-disaster-for-hollywood-and-for-us?CMP=twt_gu Steven Kane I get some people not understanding Arrival, I get some people thinking The Lobster is too weird. But they’re both not facts, just opinions. I loved both. Steven Kane Villeneuve is climbing quickly. In the next 3 or 4 years I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s labeled as one of the sci-fi masters, if he’s not already. Steven Kane In my opinion, LLL is far from ordinary. Sure it takes its cues but just because something isn’t a mind fuck, is the frontrunner and is a musical doesn’t mean it’s ordinary. JP For that matter, Chazelle has made one of the best films about music ever and the most iconic original music with human beings in at least 50 years. Chris Price David Lynch deserves something MORE than an Oscar; something alien, removed from the ordinary awards cycle. An Oscar just won’t cut it. Chris Price Villeneuve has gotten better with every movie he’s made, in my estimation. Each one is a little better than the last one. Somehow I’m doubting that trend continues with Blade Runner, but I’ll try to be optimistic. Chris Price They’re both great. Chris Price For very different reasons. Idle Time hyperbolic much? JP Blame the critics. Make a list of films about music with a higher Metascore than Whiplash and another list with original musicals with human beings with a higher Metascore than La La Land. Idle Time And Barry Jenkins made the greatest movie about black people of all time. And Richard Linklater made the greatest movie about people of all time. According to Metacritic. We can play this silly game all day. JP Well… As much as I have quite some unpopular opinions about movies that are adored here… I kind of agree with critics in the two cases you mentioned kkkkk Filmjunkie The first time I watched Mulholland Drive, I was in college. I hated it. Didn’t get it/appreciate it/understand it. I revisited it a few years later, ready for the weird and wanting to understand it. And I fell in love with it—so much so that I went out and bought it. Still didn’t ‘get it’ (does anyone really ever ‘get’ a David Lynch film??), but I was entranced by its melancholy and its almost suffocating foreboding, enhanced by its hypnotically brilliant score. Moral of the story: you can’t just sit down and watch a David Lynch film, you have to let it in, give yourself over to it, experience it. Christophe So the smile at the end means they’re both satisfied with their fates??? I assumed it meant she was getting a divorce. Bryce Forestieri I have no idea. I didn’t read this thing. Christophe Oh that’s why you described it as measured I guess… But what’s YOUR opinion? Does Mia smile because she wants to resume her relationship with Sebastian or because her professional dreams came true after breaking up with him? Bryce Forestieri The latter. But I don’t acknowledge this as some eminent Greek tragedy, courageous in its pessimism, like, you know, some people do. Bryce Forestieri But on more important news: Césars tonight! What do the French gurus say? Does It’s Only the End of the World stand a chance at a win? Is it safe for me to watch?! Christophe Here’s a link to the Césars: http://www.canalplus.fr/cinema/ceremonie-des-cesar-sur-canal/pid5499-live-ceremonie-cesar-2017.html. It starts in 25 minutes or so. I don’t know about Dolan’s film but I guess ‘Elle’ is going to do very well. The host is reasonably funny with a weird kind of humor. Other than that I really couldn’t care less and I don’t think I’m going to watch for personal reasons. I’ve been very confused for more than a year now, and extremely distraught over the last 2 weeks so I’m spending the whole week-end doing yoga, hoping to find some inner peace and guidance. Also, I would be very grateful if you could please pray for me and ask Jesus that he may please finish the work he started in me and bring a happy ending to a very painful situation that occured in the process. HE knows what I’m talking about. Let’s just say it’s eerily similar to that ‘La La Land’ ending except I’ve learnt the hard way that Love is so much more important than the rest, it’s like a divine gift that remained unopened and which I wish could be restored somehow, despite all the suffering my cowardice has unwittingly caused. Sorry for that gross outburst of overshare, but I needed to write it somewhere. Thank you for your attention. End transmission. Bryce Forestieri I’ll watch Kundun in your honor! Christophe Very appropriate choice, thank you! Do not miss 0 Comments BEST PICTUREfeaturedPredictions Friday Predictions Friday: How Reliable are the Early Critics Awards?
