Just watched the trailer. This one looks like a stellar one with Cumberbatch, Foster, Rahim and McDonald in great formDecember 1, 2020 at 12:22 pm #1203887638
Cumberbatch accent is laughably badDecember 1, 2020 at 12:24 pm #1203887642

Yeah I think that Foster looks strong in the trailer. Welcome back, Jodie!December 1, 2020 at 2:18 pm #1203887840
Supporting Actor is pretty barren. Cumberbatch could get in if the film performs wellDecember 1, 2020 at 2:48 pm #1203887894
one of the worst trailers of the yearDecember 1, 2020 at 2:57 pm #1203887908
This is like The Report 2.0 (+ZDT), I’m not really interested in this and I doubt it happens awards-wise.December 2, 2020 at 2:28 pm #1203890297
Yes I can see your point but this will focus more on the prisoner himselfDecember 4, 2020 at 11:33 pm #1203895544
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.December 6, 2020 at 1:17 am #1203897686
Yeah Cumberbatch make look stronger in the movie. It is so good to watch Foster in a great role againDecember 26, 2020 at 11:47 am #1203946404
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.
