    And so the first roll of the dice of this Oscar season has started.
    The Venice Film Festival will run from August 29th to September 8th, 2012.

    The Telluride Film Festival will run from August 31st to September 3rd, 2012

    As we’re an Awards website, I’ll only list the dates for the screenings of Oscar movies.

    At Venice:
    * The Master (Paul Thomas Anderson) – 1st September
    * To the Wonder (Terrence Malick) – 2nd September
    * The Company You Keep (Robert Redford) – 6th & 7th September

    At Telluride:
    * Hyde Park on Hudson (Robert Mitchell) – 31st August
    * Argo (Ben Affleck) – 2pm MDT, 31st August

    There are a couple of discrepancies between the schedule and the press release for telluride. The Sessions, The Company You Keep, The Impossible, Quartet & Great Expectations were all on the schedule, but were not in the press release.

    Let’s accompany these festivals, discuss and post reviews from critics. We do NOT need to focus only on the Oscar movies, of course.

    New threads will be created for the Toronto and New York Film Festivals.

    It has been confirmed that the opening film for the Telluride Film festival will NOT be Hyde Park on Hudson but in fact will be the World Premiere of Argo, with ben Aflleck in attendance. The screening will be at 2 pm local time/1pm PST/4pm EST/9pm Greenwich time.

    Just under three hours left.

    Twitter reactions to Argo are superb, with many calling it Affleck’s greatest film to date, both as a director and as an actor. Arkin’s performance as well as the screenplay, costumes and Desplat’s score are receiving significant praise.

    Not many reactions yet to Hyde Park on Hudson, but Scott Feinberg tweeted: “HYDE PARK ON HUDSON is a cute and well-acted but rather small movie. Prospects for Oscar noms probably limited to Murray. Full report soon.”

    I’m curious to see what will be the early reaction for “To The Wonder”. It will be interesting to see ritics reacting to Malick after having a film recently released that was so acclaimed.

    Well it now seems that Laura Linney doesn’t have much a chance at winning or even getting nominated. I’m reading that the film is very small and light, and Linney’s part probably isn’t significant enough to warrant a nomination. Seems like Murray is the only possibility.

    We also know for sure now that Phoneix and Hoffmann are virtual locks for The Master. Probably Amy Adams as well even though she doesn’t get much to do. I think the chances of it winning Best Picture are pretty remote to be honest but PTA is obviously the frontrunner. Many are saying it’s a master class in directon an acting, but also that it is a head scratcher as well. Knowing the academy, I doubt they award a film this complex and puzzling.

    They also say it’s morally and emotionally ambiguous. The Academy hates that in recent years (apart from “No Country For Old Men”).

    As is the cinematography. I think this could be a big player at this year’s Oscars, especially in the categories you’ve specified (plus cinematography). I also won’t be surprised if Affleck makes it into Director, though Actor is less likely.

    Adams is said to be used sparingly, but when she is on screen it leaves a lasting impact. I’m still thinking she’s getting nominated. A win seems harder to pull off (possibly divisive film, not a huge role).

    I’m wondering if they’ll campaign both Phoenix and Hoffman for Lead Actor? It seems they could. But something tells me they’ll go the ‘Brokeback’ route and split the categories with Hoffman in supporting.

    Me too. If Affleck delivers in this film, he could also ride the ‘Argo’ wave to a Best Actor nomination for one of the two.

    Eh, I don’t really care about Affleck. I just want to know if Malick can pull off two acclaimed films in two consecutive years since this is the first time it happens. 

    I’m also really curious about De Palma’s “Passion”. It looks like something that coud be a return to form of some sort for him, the trailer was quite intriguing, and the premise is the kind of thing I’m surprised he hasn’t done yet, since it feels perfect for him.

    ^’Passion’ is on my radar as well. I too don’t care for Affleck too much (unless we’re talkin’ Casey), but I think he’s having a good year all things considered. And if Malick can get a strong performance out of him like he has other actors in the past, maybe this will be a new phase for him as an actor. As for ‘The Tree of Life’, I admire it, love parts of it, but wasn’t head over heels for it as so many others were. It wouldn’t have been a BP nominee for me, but I respect Malick and I think his nomination for BD last year was pretty well deserved. I’m a little disappointed that he supposedly completely cut Rachel Weisz from ‘To The Wonder’. Oh, well…

    And McAdams will be in both ‘To The Wonder’ and ‘Passion’. I’m hoping they both prove successful for her and as films overall.

    Frances Ha early reactions:

    Kristopher Tapley ‏@kristapley
    Frances Ha is great. Baumbach’s best. Woody Allen by way of Williamsburg. “Girls” by way of…Baumbach. Also, put Adam Driver I everything.

    Alex Billington ‏@firstshowing
    Frances Ha – Aww yea, good times. Baumbach’s B&W NYC quirky late 20s character portrait. Greta Gerwig knocks this one out of the park.

    Peter Sciretta ‏@slashfilm
    Frances Ha is like a black&white film adaptation of Lena Dunham’s Girls but directed/written by Noah Baumbach. Enjoyed it greatly

    Jett Wells ‏@tjwell01
    Baumbach steals #telluride. “Frances Ha” is Woody Allen meets “Girls” but not gross. Really funny.

    Chris Willman ‏@ChrisWillman
    “Frances Ha” best film of festival so far. Just wonderful. I hereby award Greta Gerwig best actress, of whatever. #Telluride #TFF39

    eugenenovikov ‏@eugenenovikov
    FRANCES HA (A) My favorite film of the year. Baumbach’s funniest (by a hair) and most resonant (by a mile. #TFF39 #Telluride

    eugenenovikov ‏@eugenenovikov
    Be warned, though: FRANCES HA is kinder, gentler Baumbach. If that repels you, adjust expectations accordingly. #TFF39 #Telluride

    eugene hernandez ‏@eug
    In #Telluride just now I really fell for Frances in FRANCES HA. Baumbach’s latest is charming & fun. Greta is terrific. A joy to experience.

    Christopher Schiller ‏@chrisschiller
    Tweeview: FRANCES HA is this year’s HAPPY GO LUCKY. Great film & don’t let anyone tell U what the title means.

    Jacqueline Lyanga ‏@evesther
    @AFIFEST FRANCES HA was lovely! Great work! Now at THE GATEKEEPERS – #Telluride2012

    Hollywood Elsewhere ‏@wellshwood
    “Frances Ha” is sublime, so well acted, perfectly written, awesome b&b lensing, editing. Easily Noah Baumbach’s best film, hands down.

    Keri Putnam ‏@KPutnam
    Loved Frances Ha! Greta Gerwig is wonderful and movie sweet and sad. #tff

    I’m still not over Malick doing another film this fast. I’ve never missed a film of his and I’m certainly not going to start now. The way he looks at relationships is like nobody else in the industry.
