‚ÄúSomeone asked me, ‚ÄòIs she a muse for you?,‚Äô ‚Äù said Mr. Almod√≥var, whose long-term collaborations with actresses, beginning with Carmen Maura through the 1980s, have been famously fruitful and sometimes just as famously volatile. ‚ÄúWell, yes. She is a muse for me in the sense that a muse is someone who makes you better […]

The thing about Oscar watching that’s hard to get across is that there are many invested parties everywhere prepared to give out information for a variety of reasons. This is why I remain always skeptical about what I hear until I have a better idea of the film and/or the film’s reception. While it can […]

The LA Times’ Rachel Abramowitz talks to the screenwriters about how to bring the fantasy elements of The Lovely Bones to the screen. Hands down, this would be the hardest line to walk adapting the novel to the screen. However, it’s worth noting that if there is one director who can do it it’s Peter […]

This is a great bit with the star of Precious, Gabby Sadibe — it is also a good time to stop and think about how surreal all of this must be. I see pictures of a terrified Carey Mulligan walking the red carpet — a lovely girl and who gave a great performance and suddenly […]

Remarkably faithful to the novel, down to the most desolate detail. What impresses me most about the production design is the endless ashen sensation of terrible majesty.

Oscar Emerges from Chaos at NYFF by Stephen Holt ‚ÄúChaos reigns!‚Äù said the suddenly talking fox in Lars von Trier‚Äôs latest gore-and-upchuck opus ‚ÄúAntichrist‚Äù at this year‚Äôs New York Film Festival. One thing that that misogynistic, repellent, controversial film made clear to me though was, there was no way the Academy of Motion Picture Arts […]

Martin Scorsese scares pretty easy. I understand that these kinds of lists are idiosyncratic by definition, but some of his titles annotated on The Daily Beast must surely come with an asterisk (“*scary when I was 9 years old.”)¬† I’m glad I finally caught up with Dead of Night this week — on the recommendation […]
