    I’m not confident in it until its reception comes in. Spielberg can be very hit and miss.

    Not sure if this will be much of a player. Is it going to get an AFI fest berth, a surprise screening at NYFF? We shall see.

    Some were speculating that it could be pushed to next year. I don’t think that will happen but who knows…

    The Hand of God and The Lost Daughter unquestionably got the biggest boosts here (TPOTD was assured for one of those 2 big prizes anyway — and then Happening happened lol).

    Quickly: People have been so down on The Hand of God, but it just won a major prize & audiences acfually do love it! It’s rambunctious and sexy AND moving as hell lol. The Lost Daughter…..what can I say? The raves just never stopped coming. Funny thing about Happening and Parallel Mothers were that they were also both “challenging” re: motherhood so……… every year we realize that certain “challenging” things have become mainstream. So waddya do? 😀

    Sorrentino can happen but surely if he gets a director nomination The Hand of God has to be the far and away frontrunner for international feature no? And with more raved (and just as buzzy) films like <i>The Worst Person in the World</i> and Parallel Mothers right there is that possible?

    I did think that people were too quick to write off The Hand of God completely.

    I do think that people were too quick to write off The Hand of God completely.

    To be honest unless a film gets a Hillbilly Elegy/The Goldfinch type reception I think everything is written off too quickly when it under-performs certain expectations. Films can play differently with different crowds. Jojo Rabbit has a 58 on Metacritic yet it won the People’s Choice at TIFF and then won the adapted screenplay Oscar.

    I hate the actor turned director bias the directors branch has. I would be quite high on Gyllenhaal being the newcomer director slot had it not been for bias.

    Director—Sorrentino’s got the wind in his sails now, right? I mean that’s the main thing I think. You’re right. Any one of those 3 are actually possible, it’s not like he’s got this on lock. But the strategy of sending it EVERYWHERE makes it visible + Netflix. Like, I can see it? But then, Cruz just made herself stronger too. So is Parallel Mothers liked enough for Almodovar to make it in, orrrr…is The Hand of God preferred? I guess that’s the question.

    Yeah I think she’ll go the path of Bradley Cooper for <i>A Star is Born</i> (although she isn’t starring in her film…)

    HATE the bias, but Rebecca Hall is also coming lol. I don’t see it as much as a fight between Hall & Gyllenhaal to possibly get a director nod. I think Hall just….has the edge there because Passing was raved so early on, and now it’s going to be revitalized at multiple fests, particularly NYFF. This is, ofc, if it does well there. But Adapted Screenplay! One of those will win that I think? Like I’ve said before, Adapted Screenplay is where great debut directors win, and sometimes they don’t even make it into BD (I think BP for The Lost Daughter is up, though…)

    Similar to Jojo, when you go to Letterboxd for example, there is A LOT of love for this film.

    It’s so weird that The Hand of God seemingly suffered from reverse expectations. Critics expected the slowness and melancholy of Sorrentino’s previous films, but he swerved and showed rambunctious teenage life & sex & football lol (for the first half of the film at least), and they weren’t…..prepared? lol

    Yeah. Granted this is mostly the Venice crowd I think? But that did mean something. When all the films, including things like Belfast and SoHo, landed on LB between 3.3 and 3.7, The Hand of God being a WEIRDLY HIGH outlier was like…..huh?!? So I kinda took that one thing as being perhaps an indicator of greater success than we were told. Also, it’s a 76 MC with not that many reviews, it was always respectable enough.
