    Just watched the trailer. This one looks like a stellar one with Cumberbatch, Foster, Rahim and McDonald in great form

    Yeah I think that Foster looks strong in the trailer. Welcome back, Jodie!

    Supporting Actor is pretty barren. Cumberbatch could get in if the film performs well

    This is like The Report 2.0 (+ZDT), I’m not really interested in this and I doubt it happens awards-wise.

    Yes I can see your point but this will focus more on the prisoner himself

    The film looks intense and Foster looks like she’s coming for blood. I am interested in the controversial subject and it seems more involving than The Report. Cumberbatch seems miscast but he might work in the film. I try not to make too many judgments based on trailers.

    The guy who gave me the screener got back to me and it turns out that the January 12th embargo only applies to official reviews, which we never publish at Gold Derby anyway, as opposed to reactions on social media, so I am told that I am free to go ahead!

    Tahar Rahim is outstanding. I have seen hardly any films this year, but I prefer him to Riz Ahmed in Sound of Metal. This is the best American accent that I have heard from Benedict Cumberbatch. Good on him for producing the film too. He is solid; this is just not an awards role (and that goes double for Shailene Woodley).

    I count Jodie Foster as a lead. The film has three storylines, which are the parallel investigations by Foster and Cumberbatch, supplemented by Rahim remembering. I have seen arguments here (from people who have not seen it) about how Rahim’s character/predicament is the crux of the story, but what about The Silence of the Lambs? Sure, the person in lockup is the more dynamic role, but it is Foster’s viewpoint that the audience takes and it is her actions that are driving the narrative. I have also seen arguments (again from people who have not seen it) that this might be an ensemble piece. It is not. This movie has so few characters. It is kind of just Foster, Rahim and Cumberbatch. The Favourite is somewhat comparable. Cumberbatch is Rachel Weisz in that he is definitely third. Rahim is Emma Stone in that he has the eponymous role and the most screen time. Foster has less screen time than most performances that are nominated in lead actress, but more screen time than most that get nominated in supporting actress.

    What about Jodie’s performance?! Do you see her getting nominated for precursors?! Is she happening at the Oscars?!
