Months of Meryl: THE RIVER WILD

"Great post and comments. Yes, Streep had to navigate the rough waters of being in her 40's! I do think she smashed through the glass ceiling for women since she persevered and then became an even bigger star in her 50's." - Sister Rona

"One of my favourite movies from my teen years - I'm shocked at how long ago this was released. It was Meryl that sold this movie for me and is the reason I saw it. At the time, and I still feel this way, she is the reason to watch and believe this film." -Filmboymichael

Dear Link People

Cinema Blend Rian Johnson (of Brick and Looper fame) will direct at least one of the new Star Wars movies. Interesting choice
Very Smart Brothas has smart things to say about Yaya DaCosta's casting as Whitney Houston in that upcoming lifetime biopic. (I just discovered this site which I gather is pretty popular on the black internet. Some really funny posts)
MNPP Michael Haneke's Flash Mob is waiting on its lead actress. But who will it be?

In Contention top 10 performances in Roman Polanski films
AV Club talks Judy Garland and the Oscar fuck-up of 1954. One of my favorite topics!
i09 Pixar's next short is called Lava
Esquire 10 best films set in New Jersey from Atlantic City to Cop Land
Just Jared Matthew McConaughey on the red carpet for more prizes. Curiously talk is spreading that McConaughey won't be back for Magic Mike XXL. I actually think that's a great move on the movie's part but I wasn't expecting it since Hollywood usually tries to give you more of the same in sequels. (I've already discussed this but If Tatum wants to build a cash cow franchise out of this for himself as a producer that could even survive without him onscreen, he needs to understand that the topic calls for fresh meat each time. Sorry to be so crass about it but it's true!)

I hope he's waiting for Chastain. She did hand him his Foreign Language Oscar, and likely gave him an earful of her desire to be a submissive for his uncompromising auteur vision, leaving him with two boners as he roamed The Dolby.

Love love love the selfie tweet. Actressexual roots for me, right there.

I actually just saw Thelma and Louise for the first time a few weeks ago. I was slightly irritated by some of the over-the-top performances of male bit-players, but wow, a film with a bold statement and a pair of dynamic performances (Geena Davis especially blew me away. Such a departure from her defining performance for me in A League of Their Own). I also don't understand how Brad Pitt, being from Oklahoma, cannot pull off a convincing southern accent (Thelma & Louise, Inglorious Basterds). My Oklahusband says that Oklahoma isn't really really southern, but I've heard quite a few accents there worth imitating onscreen.

I just found this link, that I think would really interest you, judging by how excited you were by the Birdman trailer: http://www.hitfix.com/in-contention/is-birdman-a-one-shot-magic-trick-that-could-win-emmanuel-lubezki-his-second-oscar-in-a-row

Simply put, over the past week and a half or so, I have gone from feeling fairly indifferent about this movie to this very possibly being the movie I'm most highly anticipating this year.
