The Linking

GQ an oral history of the great sitcom Cheers
/Film first looks inside Darren Aronofsky's Noah's Ark via the great cinematographer Matthew Libatique. They should've filmed this under the pseudonym Snakes on a Boat and surprised us all with a Noah's Ark movie.
Indie Wire talks to the director of Room 237. Is the documentary, a compilation of theories and obsessions surrounding Stanley Kubrick's The Shining a celebration or a critique of film critics? I'm dying to see this even though I'm no expert on The Shining.


NY Post the Self Styled Siren takes on Brian de Palma's Passion, a remake of the french thriller Love Crimes which starred Ludivine Sagnier (interviewed).
Oklahoma is excited about the stars of August: Osage County in their midst (reminder: filming has begun!) There's a few blurry pics of stars (as well as some clear ones) and one of Meryl Streep doesn't look much like her but I'll take their word for it given the blur. 
Hollywood.com wonders if audiences want to be challenged at the movies. A question posed through the film Compliance (which you'll remember I wasn't crazy about though I do love a good movie challenge.)
Now Toronto Rian Johnson talking about his fine Looper stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis 
The Film Doctor notes on The Master
In Contention wonders if Skyfall could land a best picture nomination 
Hollywood Elsewhere Guillermo Del Toro on Ken Russell's great film The Devils 

Finally...
Do you all follow the Vanity Fair tumblr? It's fun. I love this Bruce Handy quote they recently featured:

“PARKER POSEY IS SCARY AND ANGULAR AND LOOKS LIKE SHE COULD SAY SOMETHING MEAN ABOUT YOU IN BED. SHE’S TWO-THIRDS OF THE WAY TO CATHERINE KEENER. ZOOEY DESCHANEL, ON THE OTHER HAND, IS TWO-THIRDS OF THE WAY TO MY LITTLE PONY.”

and it just begs for a poll...

I really don't think that lady is Meryl.

By the way, Ewan got the Lifetime Achivevement Award at San Sebastian Film Festival today! He looked as dreamy as always. No traces of jet lag at all.

That was horrible, Nat.

A nice little collection with articles and then WABAM! Choose who dies of these three actresses and who gets to live.

Ugh. Not nice at all.

Was it ever announced who was playing Ivy in Osage County?

September 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAaron

I've recently starting watching Cheers from episode one on Netflix. It's amazing how the show still holds up.

September 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterK

@Aaron

Julianne Nicholson is playing Ivy

September 27, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterrick

Why Posey, of course.

September 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJulien Faddoul

Also, today I read that Meryl Streep might possibly be teaming up again with Tommy Lee Jones in a movie that he is writing , directing and starring in called "Homesman" ... about a frontier couple who are transporting 3 insane women across the prairie.... that is the good news.... the bad news is that Hilary Swank will be playing TLJ's wife.

Have you seen Passion? It's gorgeous.

September 27, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKurtis O

Parker! She's just great.

Catherine is boring and Zooey is annoying.

September 28, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPhilip

OMG how could you make me choose between Parker Posey and Catherine Keener - two (personal) ultimate legends of actressing for all time??!! I live for the polls but I'm not sure I can actually do this one. I've been sitting here for over ten minutes trying to decide who I would pick in a mad cycle of rationalizations and weights and measures.....

One thing's for certain: Zooey Deschanel doesn't stand a chance.

September 28, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJesse

I still think that Parker Posey should've been Ivy.

September 28, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterWill

Apropos of nothing above, Nat....have you heard anything lately about that film "Winnie," the biopic of Winnie Mandela with Jennifer Hudson playing Winnie? I'm asking because it's hitting theatres here in Montréal next Friday, and I was wondering if it's being released in the States.

September 28, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBill_the_Bear

bill the bear -- only that it's being released. I can't see it going anywhere.

OT, knowing your love for Alrmodóvar, here's a link to an article he wrote about the recent demonstrations against the government policies and the brutal use of force by the police.

I know, it's in Spanish, but these kinds of things remind me of what a good writer he is.
