The Film Society of Lincoln Center has just announced Gone Girl will open the fest. Today they posted great picture of Fincher directing Ben Affleck with a long track in place for what promises to be a rad tracking shot. We just have to wait to Rocktober to see it.

    Fincher Fans Alert: Caught this on Twitter today. A look back at DF directing his first film, Aliens 3. Jeez he looked young and innocent then.

    Am I the only one who thinks Ben Afleck is a lousy actor? That he’s overrated?

    “Am I the only one who thinks Ben Affleck is a lousy actor? That he’s overrated?”

    In movies like Bounce, Reindeer Games, Pearl Harbor, Jersey Girl {and a few others} – yes!

    But he impressed in the likes of Good Will Hunting, Hollywoodland, The Town and Argo. Not to mention a couple of great cameos in Shakespeare in Love and Boiler Room.

    When James Coburn won his Oscar for Affliction he said some {movies} he does for love and some he does for money {and that Affliction was for love}. And I think Affleck has the same outlook – if he cares, he is generally good.

  6. I just now realized I missed an great opportunity with “Afflection” there. Darn it!

  7. I swear it looks like the camera is hovering next to the guy sweeping the sand

    Allow some advertising? I posted this photo a few weeks ago on my tumblr: http://moviedirectorscamerasviewfinders.tumblr.com/

    And on the last International Women’s Day I posted two albums of photos of Mrs. Ida Lupino.

    I want to throw this idea in, right here, right now… have you people noticed how much love and what a big year Neal Patrick Harris has? And this film is one of the Oscar favorites, for a number of reasons… I have him noted down as sure-shot nominee, probable winner in Supporting Actor.

  11. I haven’t read the book but based on the trailer Harris’ role doesn’t seem that huge. I think Pike is going to get most of the acting praises. Plus, Tyler Perry’s role seems bigger.

    To that, I just have to mention: Alan Alda, The Aviator. That one hits all the NPH’s notes (beloved and underrated in film TV star, in a role no one expected to be the one that would grant an Oscar nom). Sometimes it’s all about who you are and how you are liked by your fellow actors.
