    From the Time Out interview Part 1: The Last Duel explores a powerful story based on real events. Did that play on your mind when you took on the role?
    ‘Definitely. The biggest goal was to encapsulate the strength and the resilience that [Marguerite] evidently had in speaking out in a time when women were so disregarded by society and not thought of as human.’

    From the Time Out interview Part 2: The film exposes the power dynamics between men and women in the 14th century. Does it feel different exploring that in a period setting rather than in a contemporary drama?
    ‘We are naive sometimes in thinking: “Oh, this was so long ago and we don’t have this problem anymore”. There are still these issues around the world today and especially with women fighting for autonomy over their own bodies – that hasn’t gone away.’ What was it like working with Ridley Scott on this massive film?
    ‘It was such a dream to get to see how he works, having watched his films and been a fan of him. He has four or five cameras rolling the entire time, which is unheard of.’

    Yeah I tried the killing eve show, not for me. I did see Free Guy, but c’mon she could have done that in her sleep. I’m looking forward to TLD, but I’m just saying it’s way too early to say she will outact Gaga.

     

    Fair enough. Having seen both ASIB and killing eve I know who I’d be putting my money on performance-wise. Obvs getting the nom is a different kettle of fish

    This could be a surprise hit. About Disney and its very bad and small release, it could be for other reasons: 1.- Ridley Scott had a huge contract in the old times with FOX. That contract is dead with Disney these days. 2.- These days, Ridley Scott as Film Director is totally free and he works with everyone: APPLE, HBO MAX, MGM and Paramount Pictures

    John Rocha (critic & host of Outlaw Nation):

    #TheLastDuel is a brutal, haunting and unyielding film that uses its #Rashomon effect to render a subtly devastating finale.

    #JodieComer delivers a performance of great might, depth and nuance.

    #RidleyScott puts the world of men on trial. There will be no appeal of the verdict. source: https://mobile.twitter.com/TheRochaSays/status/1446133031727632395

    Jodie is gathering up a nice steady inflow of amazing reviews, even in the not so good overall reviews…

    ‘Equally stunning is Jodie Comer’s performance, which, I don’t know what more you could ask as an academy voter for an actress to give.’

    Nigel Smith (People Magazine news editor for Movies): #TheLastDuel is nothing like what I expected when the project was announced. So powerfully nuanced in its final chapter with Jodie Comer delivering on all fronts. Ben Affleck, blonde hair and all, is a surprise delight. Source: https://mobile.twitter.com/nigelmfs/status/1446277450778951685

    Chris Evangelista (senior writer & chief film critic for Slashfilm): THE LAST DUEL: Ridley’s still got it. This is pretty damn great. And brutal. Everyone is doing good work here, especially Jodie Comer. But, surprisingly, Ben Affleck kinda steals the show. Source: https://mobile.twitter.com/cevangelista413/status/1446287545319448576

    Esther Zuckerman (senior entertainment writer for the Thrillist): The Last Duel: A good movie about how men are trash in so many different ways. Also Ben Affleck Oscar??? Affleck has a line reading that rivals “retainer”. There is a moment so violent in the titular duel that I yelled “ RIDLEY” out loud.” Source: https://mobile.twitter.com/ezwrites/status/1446273506359091207 & https://mobile.twitter.com/ezwrites/status/1446274232846016513 & https://mobile.twitter.com/ezwrites/status/1446283531219578883

    Jason Gorber (freelance critic) #TheLastDuel – Ridley’s best in decades, a taut action drama told RASHOMON style, sublime performances even from those you may have tired of. Beautifully shot and assembled. Would make a -fantastic- double bill w/ #Benedetta. source: https://mobile.twitter.com/filmfest_ca/status/1446271492052951041 A lot of the reactions seem to be from press screenings for the film in NYC as well as the screening at the Chicago Film Festival.

    Eric Kohn (VP & Executive Editor for IndieWire): THE LAST DUEL manages to balance a harrowing rape-revenge story with a pitch-black satire of medieval masculinity far better than I expected. Good double bill with THE GREEN KNIGHT. source: https://mobile.twitter.com/erickohn/status/1446273099780050945
