Marriage Story Review

"They're saying this is for Adam Driver what Kramer vs Kramer was for Dustin Hoffman. More about him than about her.  Scarlett, to me, is the open question. By now it's Driver vs Phoenix for best actor." - Melchiades - Andrew

"Mini-shutout to Alda, whom I loved and thought did absolute wonders in his what, 3 or 4 scenes. Great review!" -Alex

Hearing Kent Jones overintellectualize everything he sees is my least favorite part of NYFF. As a result, I’ve been avoiding Diane like the plague. Maybe I should give it a chance though...? You guys are definitely making me reconsider.

I saw HIGH LIFE opening weekend in LA. Juliette Binoche deserves subsequent Oscar recognition for just existing.

Mary Kay! I would carve her face on Mount Rushmore

Although her Weinstein has had enough stance is pretty trashy for a classy lady.

High Life was basically a sequel to White Material, hence the obsession with semen and milk. But, Murturda you must see Trouble Every Day and Intruder, because I get a sense that you liked Denis enough that these two films would appeal. Finally, I was surprised neither of you mention Claire's regular musical collaborators, Tindersticks. Since seeing High Life I cannot get their song, Willow, out of my head. I even hear it in my dreams!

Murtada (sorry for the wrong spelling)

Your misreading is Sauvage is disconcerting.

Your misreading of (I should say)

April 22, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterIshmael

Ishmael - actually I saw Trouble Every Day since we recorded, and liked it. Tell me more re Sauvage .....
