Brolin Hints at Plot of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice

Read More

Thanks to reader Bryce for point us to the news that Josh Brolin has let slip a few interesting tidbits from Anderson’s new film. The Film Stage got the story from Cigs & Red Vines, which got the story from The Independent. Here are a few choice quotes: “I just did a movie for P T Anderson that I didn’t understand. The writing of Thomas Pynchon is so Shakespearean. It…

Salon’s Andrew O’Hehir says, “it’s a magnificent drama with an immense emotional payoff, combining old-fashioned Hollywood storytelling and an auteurist, European-style sense of mystery.” James Gray’s subtle and powerful melodrama “The Immigrant,” which premiered here [in Cannes] on Friday, is set in precisely the same period as “Gatsby” and just a few miles away, but its world and its frame of reference could hardly be more different. Gray is a…

Joaquin Phoenix on Winning the LFC

Anne Thompson posted the winners of the London Film Critics awards and Joaquin Phoenix does a funny thing there at the end: “I struggle with the idea of winning awards for acting. Stating I’m Best Actor for something as subjective as film seems strange to me. To the uninitiated it implies I’m solely responsible for the creation and implementation of the character. I am not. I suppose that’s why we…

Beyond the Sound Bite: The Joaquin Phoenix We Didn’t See

Read More

It’s funny how a soundbite can alter perception. That is probably because we bring so much of ourselves into how we view something separate from its whole. After podcasting last night with Craig Kennedy and Ryan Adams we got into a fairly heated exchange about Phoenix and that now infamous (in our little tiny postage stamp size world) quote in Interview magazine about the Oscars. They took the opposing view of…

Joaquin Phoenix Wants no Part of Oscar but Oscar Still Wants a Part of Him

Joaquin Phoenix Wants no Part of Oscar but Oscar Still Wants a Part of Him

Read More

There is a long tradition of the Oscar voters voting for actors even when those actors have poo-poo’d the awards. Why? Because there probably isn’t a single person in the Kodak, either in the audience or on stage who doesn’t think the same thing.  The only people who really think that much of the Oscars are the fans, and the journalists who always start an obit with “Oscar winner so-and-so.”…

Denzel Washington Launches into the Oscar Race for Best Actor

Read More

Todd McCarthy says about Denzel Washington in Robert Zemeckis’ Flight, “Onscreen for nearly the entire running time, Washington has found one of the best parts of his career in Whip Whitaker, a middle-age pilot for a regional Southern airline who knows his stuff and can still get away with behaving half his age. In the film’s raw opening scene, he’s lying in bed in Orlando at 7 a.m. after an…

Joaquin Phoenix returns to David Letterman’s Late Show

Joaquin Phoenix returns to David Letterman’s Late Show

Read More

Last night Joaquin Phoenix made his first return visit to The Late Show with David Letterman since his faked meltdown 18 months ago. In explaining the genesis of the idea and his bizarre immersion in the fictional documentary I’m Still Here, Phoenix went a long way in convincing confused viewers that he’s returned to sanity too. In fact never went over the edge at all. Before the interview, Letterman’s intro…
