CLASSIC OF THE MOMENT

SILENCE OF THE LAMBS
25th Anniversary Retrospective

"Thank you all for such a wonderful series - it's been a daily pleasure this week to check into the next installment. With the film structured the way it is, you all got to write about a bit of Buffalo Bill, a bit of Clarice and Lecter, and a bit of Demme's ultra-electric casting and shot selection!"- Edward L

Meryl in May?

"Part of me is really amused by the idea of Streep getting recognition for playing the part of someone so notoriously untalented and completely unaware of it to boot."- Nick T

 "all Meryl Streep needs to do is tell the studio "Yes, I'm up for a campaign" and she'll get another nomination. It's just that easy."- Yavor

Juliette or Guilietta?

Have you heard that Juliette Lewis will be starring in a film called The Days of Mary (2013?) loosely based on Federico Fellini's Oscar-winning Nights of Cabiria (1957)? It feels like her first lead role in ages so we hope it actually happens.

 

 

It's now in Reno -- practically Rome's twin ! (kidding) -- and Juliette is a girl looking for love in, we presume, the wrong places. Bad things tend to happen in movies where Juliette is entangled romantically: mass murder (NBK), end of times chaos (Strange Days), thumbsucking (Cape Fear) but this project doesn't feel as shocking / sacrilegious when you remember that Nights of Cabiria has already been reimagined once as Sweet Charity (1969) starring Shirley Maclaine.

Okay, wait, we need to remake reboot reimagine that poll now...

 

 

Have you seen Nights of Cabiria and Sweet Charity? If not, get on that, will ya?
