Comment Fun

Carey Mulligan in Wildlife FYC

"She can be rather bland (see Drive for one blatant example) BUT when she is on, she is on fire. Phenomonal in Shame and Never Let Me Go." - Huh

"She will have a long and fruitful career. I see her like the next Charlotte Rampling. Aging gracefully carrying complicated roles in complicated movies." - Peggy Sue

I don't really get why people think Kate won't be nominated when reviews call her performance in "Wonder Wheel" one of her very best and considering that Woody really knows how to write compelling, challenging parts for actresses.

Actors aren't in love with Cranston their stuck on Walter White.

I haven't seen "Wonderstruck" (and may not), but I do think it's funny that Haynes seems to be responding to the "his films are distant and take place under glass" critique by literally making a movie about museums and cabinets.

I'm so disappointed A Fantastic Woman wasn't at NYFF this year. Nathaniel, is it definitely getting a qualifying release?

October 30, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterTrish

Trish -- i can't say "definitely" because foreign films have notoriously changing release dates when coming to the US. That was the plan but i dont knwo if it still is now that it has an official release date planned for February. Either way though it will be eligible for Best Foreign Film this year

A Fantastic Woman appears on the Angelika NYC site as opening on 11/17 so i assume it is getting the one week qualifying release.

Thanks for everyone who listened. I wanted to mention one film I forgot that is playing now, God's Own country. It's a great year for queer film, dont miss this one which has a lower profile but is also fantastic.
