    Lol yeah, this feels almost like a redemption arc given how unexpected it is.

    Its strange to have Sasha Stone on your side when she’s been on the Green Book team followed by her “#BongHive is a deranged cult of bullies” rhetoric THEN followed by “Nomadland is free of criticism because it is directed by an Asian woman. While woke twitter is going on a charade against Mank” delusion.

    Well, we could also say that Nomadland was a huge hit with critics while not being that much liked by audiences, not necessarily “divisive” as people tend to use the word, but the disconnection exists. And Nomadland also gained its frontrunner status really early (and there wasn’t another film as acclaimed competing at the Oscars).

    What I have been seeing is that Kirsten is not being higlighted much, there is the usual “the supporting cast is great too!”, but the comments don’t reflect best in show or one of her best performances.

    I’ve seen plenty of reviews calling Kirsten’s performance one of her best. Whats intriguing me the most, is the fact several critics are raving her to the moon, with some saying she has the most awards friendly performance in it, while others only say she’s very good and thats it. I’ve also seen several complaining about the fact her role is much shorter compared to the book. It’s almost like they all watched different movies.

    The role is objectively smaller than the book’s, she doesn’t have an arc like on page and maybe the best scene she had was cut and modified when translated in the script. Anyway, even if she has less to do and her scenes are less diversified, she’s very very good.

    The Power of the Dog is a tale of toxic masculinity in a western setting. Benedict Cumberbatch is fantastic, but the film is a challenging slow burn that will lose a lot of viewers along the way. Made for and geared towards hardcore cinephiles. #ThePowerOfTheDog https://t.co/u5BU4ysC5X

    Anne Thompson:

    “[…]but one thing is certain: Benedict Cumberbatch’s surly cattle rancher in “The Power of the Dog” and Kristen Stewart’s caged Princess Diana in “Spencer” will be in the running for their first Oscar wins.

    […] Critics adore this elegantly wrought hardscrabble drama, and the Academy will also appreciate its virtues, from Campion’s writing and directing and Ari Wegner’s ace cinematography to Jonny Greenwood’s haunting violins. Actors will embrace Cumberbatch, who landed a nomination for “The Imitation Game” and should return to contention for his tortured, leathery ranger, whose internal conflicts erupt into cruelty against his brother’s wife and student son (Kodi Smit-McPhee). They and Plemons could all earn their first Oscar nods.

    Yeah I can tell you why that is. Before it premiered, a number of critics said the film would trigger the first “category fraud debate” of the season—because Rose in the book is….a co-lead. Then the film came out and whereas some people did feel that she’s still a co-lead because of the inherent ambiguity, most saw a smaller role and were a tad disappointed by that. That’s why an instinctive response was to be like “wait what, why did Campion adapt it like that.”

    On the other hand, apparently she has an equal amount of screen time, and perhaps more dialogue? Mind-boggling. I have zero idea why there’s such vastly different takes here, but I guess I’ll find out for myself. Regardless, putting her in supporting seems like a clearly great idea, because you basically have a almost-frauded-but-maybe-not-so-it’s-fine-let-it-go situation here.

    FYI—I have no idea why Anne Thompson wrote Plemons when it seems she means Dunst according to her predix. Dunst is at no. 2 (Merediz is at no. 1) and Smit-McPhee is no. 1. No Plemons. Maybe it’s a slip-up & she just thought she meant the phrase meant the whole ensemble.

    I’m sad that it’s going to streaming because this needs to be experienced in a theater.

    It’s gonna get a theatrical release!! 😀

    Kirsten Dunst was the heart and soul of this movie. You simply cannot deny her facial expressions and her emoting from scene to scene.

    cry

    I blame my non glasses eyes. Sorry, Smit-McPhee, but he’s definitely coming!
