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

If Bombshell is great it might become the tweet of the year!

Cute. I don't think the focus could get any softer.

I think I just died and went to heaven...

If this flick gets no award or nomination doesn't matter, the gathering of these three goddesses is already worth it.

Bombshell could be a major player everywhere,

September 16, 2019 | Unregistered Commentermarkgordonuk

Nicole has appeared in 15 movies since 2015, not to mention Top of the Lake and two seasons of Big Little Lies. Photograph 51 onstage also falls into that 2015-2019 range.

I adore her but it's too much. It's too much! She's spread herself thin and I'm afraid it shows in much of her work.

September 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAnonny

Anonny -- she should probably turn a few things down, yes.

September 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterNATHANIEL R

Can I be in the relationship as their cabana boy?

September 16, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterthevoid99

I wonder why she accepts so many roles,she has ceased to be fresh.

September 16, 2019 | Unregistered Commentermarkgordonuk

Nicole accepts so many roles because she is offered them and wants to work. She probably does “turn a few things down”. She’s a free agent with the luxury to pick and choose any role she wants - for now. And while she can she’ll seize ever opportunity. I hope that as the years go on she’ll continue to take roles that challenge her. Some may resonate others will fade but looking for the next challenge is what motivates. I doubt very much she ever considers the need to stay “fresh”. What a demeaning term that is anyway.

Rabbit Hole was the only movie she made in 2010. The Paperboy was the only movie she made in 2012. There's a loose, inverse causal relationship between Nicole's whirlwinds of productivity and the performances that really connect.

I'd rather get one fully realized performance than five half baked performances. I adore Nicole but we've been getting more of the latter from her since 2017.

September 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAnonny

Since 2015, Nicole has appeared in 17 productions: Strangerland, Queen of the Desert, The Family Fang, Secret in Their Eyes, The Guardian Brothers, Genius, Lion, How to Talk to Girls at Parties, The Killing of the Sacred Deer, Top of the Lake, The Beguiled, The Upside, Destroyer, Boy Erased, Big Little Lies, The Goldfinch, and Bombshell.

And Aquaman's mom.

Aren't you all a bit tired of the wigs?

September 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue


No offense, but what are you smoking? Kidman has done some of the greatest, freshest work of her career since 2017. It's why she's a relevant star again. There will be a dud or two, but in broader terms she's had one of the most impressive 2-3 year runs of any working actress this decade.

Kidman is a bulletproof actor. She can shrug off flops (and even give great performances in them), and chances are she's already filmed her next great movie or TV show. She never half asses her performances, even when the project disappoints. I love that she works so often, because she always brings it.

September 16, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterfrida

Are you even reading the titles of these projects? She was good in BLL but most of these movies are awful.

September 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterFaye

I really hope this film is great. Even if this film isn’t, I have no doubt Theron will be on fire in this and that Kidman and Robbie will provide ample support.

September 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAndrew

Nicole doesn't always take leading roles or appear in every scene of every film she does, which is one reason she can fit in so much.

I'm a fan but I certainly don't see everything. I'd never even heard of THE GUARDIAN BROTHERS on @Sunday Roast's list.

September 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSteve G

It's only a cartoon where she provided a voice. Only James Franco appeared in more films until he was blacklisted.

September 17, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSunday Roast

This is the dreamlike version of The Danish Girl come to life. What could—and ought to!—have been, folks.

September 17, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMareko

@frida - she is bulletproof, because she takes risks (and always has) and will work with Von Trier, Lanthimos, Kusama, and will just turn it out because she can. She can do what she wants because she has the means, and will always be daring. See also: Kristen Stewart.
