I really like the trailer. And there’s such a wealth of supporting performers involved too; I’m very excited to see more. Isaac and Mulligan both look great in the trailer.January 25, 2013 at 5:10 pm #88583
I like the photography and Carrie Mulligan’s work just from the trailer looks like the kind of thing that could get critics’ prizes and maybe an Oscar.January 25, 2013 at 5:36 pm #88584
^I agree. The cinematography by Bruno Delbonnel looks great.January 25, 2013 at 5:39 pm #88585
While I think (hope?) that Julianne Moore will win supporting actress for one of her films this year, Carey Mulligan does look fantastic here.
This could end up duking it out with Great Gatsby for the cinematography Oscar. Gatsby probably has the edge (of course, this is all being said without having seen the films) since more recently the voters have gone for big, IMAX epics in those categories. Coen films also have bad luck in this category.January 25, 2013 at 5:40 pm #88586
I’m not feeling the trailer. If i’m watching this, is going to be for Mulligan because I love her!January 25, 2013 at 5:43 pm #88587
Looks interesting but not a trailer I’ll remember. I’ll have to be reminded to see this.January 26, 2013 at 5:27 am #88588
A Coens brothers film is a cause of celebration. I’ll be there on opening day.May 20, 2013 at 2:51 am #88589
The initial reviews are in and this film is hitting it out of the park! It seems to be getting 5 star reviews almost everywhere. I haven’t seen reviews this high on a major film since The Social Network. Based on these early reviews, I’d estimate this film is going to be mid 90s on Metacritic and high 90s on Rotten Tomatoes.
It is early, but based on the reviews that I’ve read I’ll go out and say that this has a BP nomination lock, and a very strong contender for a Director nomination. I don’t know much about Oscar Isaac, but he is getting strong performance reviews (and was cheered at Cannes), so he certainly must be a strong contender for a Leading Actor nomination. And the reviews also imply that the cat (yes, felis catus) deserves a Supporting Actor nom!May 20, 2013 at 6:44 am #88590
The Coens killing it as usual, of course the film has a lot of potential at the Oscars, it’ll be such a hit there: Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actress, Screenplay + some tech noms… I can’t say I’m surprised, this is the Coens.May 20, 2013 at 3:17 pm #88591
Metacritic has updated and this film is currently scoring a perfect 100 with 8 reviews in. Seriously*. It certainly won’t hurt the buzz of this film if it hangs out with a perfect Metacritic score for 7 months. I don’t expect it to stay this high when the rest of the reviews come in (regression toward the mean), but I think I can confidently say that this film is going to give films like The Social Network, Zero Dark Thirty, and Pan’s Labyrinth a run for their money. The critics are in love with this movie–they may need a room!
* The score is probably 99.5% or so and was rounded up due to a couple of non-perfect reviews.May 20, 2013 at 4:13 pm #88592
Meh trailer. But im ALL for John Goodman & Carey Mulligan getting some academy love. They’re both terrific!May 20, 2013 at 6:45 pm #88593
This is gonna be big. Early choice for critics.May 20, 2013 at 7:41 pm #88594
If this wins one of the big three at Cannes, we can be sure it will get at least a few nominations, and maybe Best Picture, considering the less accessible “Tree Of Life” and “Amour” got enough traction to go so far.
