Isabelle Adjani give single handily the best performance I’ve ever seen in possession. She has so many showy scenes from fighting with Sam Neill too the monologue in the flashback to playing the duel role of Anna/Helen. However the subway scene is by god the BEST acting I’ve had the pleasure of seeing. Her mental breakdown is electrifying her laughs and screams. Her body movements is impressive as if she having an exorcism. But damn her scream has she bleeding out from the miscarriage was fucked up and haunting. She should’ve won the oscars for best actress.August 14, 2020 at 3:31 am #1203645172This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 14, 2020 at 9:30 am #1203645559
Helen Hunt was great in As Good As It Gets and deserved her Oscar!August 14, 2020 at 12:02 pm #1203645702
The fisticuffs sequence in It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World is one of the funniest I’ve seen in a while.August 16, 2020 at 6:19 pm #1203649462
Just watched Bunny Lake Is Missing. So chilling. I’m on a movie binge in general.August 17, 2020 at 9:39 pm #1203651877
Recently watched Our Souls at Night. Who else has seen it? It’s a really sweet and moving film and Robert Redford and Jane Fonda are wonderful in it.August 18, 2020 at 4:31 am #1203652168
It’s kinda funny how at one point Hustlers, Joker & Uncut Gems all had Scorsese attached/interested to direct and all of them played the same festival (TIFF-19) and the same yearly quarter, in a year where Scorsese himself had a new film out.August 19, 2020 at 11:18 am #1203655092
Koreans will be able to see Tenet as early as this 22nd, unless the very recent surge in COVID there require them to cancel all advance showings. Excited to read the reactions soon! Hopefully it’ll be as mind-bending as Inception.
At the same time, I don’t see how it can be at all profitable for them to release it worldwide this coming quarter..August 19, 2020 at 4:57 pm #1203655697
If you want to see movies for free on the internet go to MovGoTV. I’ve seen a lot of excellent movies on this website.August 19, 2020 at 5:31 pm #1203655772
I find it so frustrating that comedy actor/actresses, directors/writers and films don’t get the respect they deserve come award season.
Comedies are supposed to make money. Not necessarily garner critical acclaim. Hence the lack of award season expectation for them. Marisa Tomei’s win carries with it a stigma of controversy because it wasn’t a respectable comedy vehicle she won for. But something crass and wholly mainstream.August 19, 2020 at 5:33 pm #1203655776
I wish Whoopi Goldberg was given more movies. She’s an Oscar winning actress and so talented.
Whoopi needs projects that play to her strengths as a performer like How Stella Got Her Groove Back.August 20, 2020 at 3:36 am #1203656259This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 25, 2020 at 2:15 pm #1203667189
On first viewing, Marriage Story felt somewhat oppressive because the two main characters are white, articulate, emotionally attentive, handsome people and the movie portrays them as being attractive due to those qualities.
I felt similarly about Roma because the movie implied that being a strong, soft-spoken, generous person like the main hero is a virtue (which it is, I guess, but that’s not the only way to live, you know, especially if the person is not privileged).
But I decided to be more generous to the directors and the film. In the end, they’re making a personal film, and they are being honest and earnest. I don’t have to be 100% on board with their sentiment to appreciate their good faith.October 20, 2020 at 1:42 pm #1203791893
