"While it doesn't seem groundbreaking, I know I will watch it eventually because of the four legends in the cast." - Rebecca

"Adored both Bergen and Keaton (and Garcia!), liked Fonda and unfortunately, thought Steenburgen kind of drew the short straw here. Overall, had a ball!" - Andrew

news bits
Empire the ever employed Liam Neeson joins A Monster Calls... the new feature from the director of The Impossible. I can't wait until it's retitled something dull like "Dark River"
Cinema Blend The Flintstones getting a new animated feature because no franchise is allowed to ever die
In Contention The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby will be released in three different versions. It's a neat experiment but it fills me with horror. Goodbye final cut and "definitive" versions. That's a thing of the past (Malick, Lucas, and Scott have been trying to force that on us for years with their "oh, i'm sorry did i say i was finished i wasn't finished" tinkering so I'm sure they're thrilled.)
Guardian Andrea Arnold to direct first US film, a road trip called American Honey. I hope she casts professional actors this time.

Strangely, I got to see Michael Clayton again last week and Clooney was sort of A M A Z I N G?

Arnold is responsible for at least 80% of the carnal thoughts the world has about Michael Fassbender. That intro in Fish Tank.

I agree that she should hire professionals but let's hope she hits the jackpot like that again.

When has Andrea Arnold gone wrong with casting non-professionals? C'mon, she gave us THAT performance from Kate Jarvis! (I guess I haven't seen Wuthering Heights yet? I dunno.)

As a completist and a huge fan of McAvoy and Chastain I'm also not sure what to do. I mean if I had all the money and time in the world, I'd see all three films no sweat. But I don't so now what?

Watch the Cannes version theatrically. Then wait for home video to see Him and Her.
