Kim Masters HR Exclusive on Fincher is a tad One-Sided

Read More

The Hollywood Reporter runs its second story on David Fincher, Sony and the supposed upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, wherein a source continues to huff and puff their side of the story all the while complaining about what a diva and tyrant Fincher is because of his “excessive” demands. Second story, same unnamed source, same one-sided lament. Let’s put this into the bigger picture. First, what do you do if you…

Harvey Weinstein Speaks on Movies

This is one reason Harvey Weinstein is good for the movie business — he gets the bigger picture. This is also why he’s great at Oscar campaigning — when he has a horse that can win — he knows what they want in the end. You have to take your hat off to him for what he did for Inglourious Basterds last year: that is one of the weirdest films…

Last night’s Oscars will be remembered for several reasons. ¬†The first, there has never been a film that won the NBR, the NYFCC, the LAFCA and the Globe (Picture, Director and Screenplay) and not won the DGA and then the Oscar for Best Picture. ¬†Moreover, until last night, no film with as few awards heading into the guilds had ever won. ¬†The result? ¬†Three paltry Oscars for The Social Network…

The Guardian Calls it for the Social Network

It isn’t that the Eddie’s win last night makes it suddenly apparent that The Social Network will win – there is precedent for both films taking Best Picture. Films have won the three major guilds, lost the Eddie but still won Best Picture (American Beauty is one, No Country for Old Men is another), and there are films that won all three guilds, lost the Eddie, and then lost Best…

Google Trending Predicts The Social Network for the Win

I’ve been at this so long I remember when the Wall Street Journal used to do a poll to predict who would win — I think they turned out to be kind of right but not 100%. ¬†The reason the race is so hard to predict is because it’s won not on quality usually but on perception. ¬†And perception can change on a dime. ¬†We all remember high school, right?…

David Fincher: Through a Glass Darkly

Read More

From the first note of the first frame of The Social Network we are immersed in David Fincher‚Äôs senses. The soundtrack roars immediately to life with The White Stripes pulsating guitar riff on ‚ÄúBall and Biscuit.‚Äù We are in a darkened bar. The characters are talking so fast you can barely make out what they‚Äôre saying. You might not get what they’re saying but your senses have already come alive…
