JANE is the doc frontrunner

"Can we hav a tie w both Jane and Faces Places?" - Claran

"Jane was wonderful. Goodall's such a compelling presence that the talking heads even give off a freshness that that format has lacked in recent documentaries." - John T

August. It's a Wrap

Summer's end. Halleloo! I can practically taste the fall and it is delicious. Mmmmm dead leaves. Here are some key posts from the dog days of summer in case you missed them.

Cinema Swimwear The Film Experience launches a clothing line! Why didn't you purchase anything?
Short Term 12 How many films this good does August ever bring? Go see it!
The Worst of the Worst Tim looks back at 3 horrifying cinema summers 
The Last Temptation of Christ Michael wonders if it still has the power to outrage?

Skarsgård Reads Naked the mind wanders
The Color Purple a look back through Oscar-tinted glasses for "Best Shot"
Team Hitchcock are these the 10 most memorable performances in his films? 
Podcasting The Butler the gang is all back and the podcasts are now weekly!  

COMING IN SEPTEMBER: It's Back to School Month so we'll be visiting some edumucational movies -- any suggestions? We'll be hitting new movies like The Family (La Pfeiffer), Don Jon (Scarjo & JGL), The Face of Love (The Bening!), and Prisoners (Viola, Hugh, and Jake? Yes please times three). Nathaniel and Amir will be reporting live from TIFF next week and Nathaniel, Jose, JA and Glenn will be reporting live from NYFF later in the month.

Finally, we had great fun in August "introducing" the characters from 1952's Supporting Actress lineup, revisiting the Oscar ceremony and then reviving Stinky Lulu's Smackdown. So next month 'The Year of the Month' (that has an odd ring to it, eh?) is 1980 so if you want to maximize your reading pleasure you'll rent Supporting Actress nominated films like Raging Bull, Private Benjamin, Melvin & Howard, Inside Moves, and Resurrection and maybe catch a few of the other seminal films from that year ... you know, for context.

What does "edumucational" mean?

Ugh. I buy the cheapest ticket package at TIFF and it placed me to make my selections AFTER single-day tickets went up. FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUU.

I did buy Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom and Gravity single-day to not risk it.

I have a feeling I'm going to love ScarJo in Don Jon more than I've ever loved her in my life. She looks divine.
