10th Anniversary: A SERIOUS MAN

"I have never seen a film that mixes laugh-out-loud comedy so intimately with dead serious philosophical questioning. It packs so much into its short runtime. " - Dr strange

"This movie is one of my favorites - Michael Stuhlbarg the biggest reason, he's so heartbreakingly fantastically good in everything." -Rebecca

Those unfamiliar with Tolkien but for book jacket photos, Hoult seems like odd casting but the movie will be about his youth and service in World War I (which of course informed his iconic books)

Kathleen Turner at Liberty -- Make it happen Scott Rudin!

Gay twitter has decided that La Bening is winning her first for the Gloria Grahame movie. What do you think? I'm a pesimist.

"But they might not want to harp on and on about "meticulously researched" since we spotted several errors without doing any research at all!"

I mean.... My favorite was when Jack Warner felt he wasn't making enough money from My Fair Lady and really needed a Baby Jane sequel to hit the box-office zenith. When the two movies came out the same Christmas. And My Fair Lady was a colossal hit that dwarfed Baby Jane. But whatev's. I also think de Havilland could afford to chill on this one.

Glenn Close winning an Oscar is so much more important than Annette Benning winning. I guess Annette winning seems a little more likely and thats why people cling to the idea?

July 26, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterPhilip H.

My twitter believes it's Annette vs. Glenn or Meryl's 4th.

Shut up people
MANDY PATINKIN IS PLAYING PIERRE!!! oh god can Bernadette Peters join him as Natasha?!

July 26, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterCraver

LOL the way you organized those links I thought you had said that Kathleen Turner would be playing Bobby's character in Company. Now I'm sad that isn't true!!

July 27, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterAdam

I am already falling asleep at the thought of that Hoult/Tolkein biopic.

July 27, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterGlenn Dunks

Adam- LOL

July 27, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDAVID

@Glenn - Me too.

That production of "Company" could be really interesting. Good on Sondheim for being open to new interpretations.

July 27, 2017 | Unregistered CommenterDJDeeJay

I love the idea of a gender-switched Company. The show is my favorite Sondheim and I think it would lend itself well to this twist. I agree that Sondheim is super-cool to be so open to it.
