Silence seems like vintage Martin Scorsese. I’m voting for it.

Silence footage coming soon (Cannes). I guess it’s not ready or they want to wait until New York Film Festival but they’re showing apparently something there (scorsese goes with Bleed for This).March 11, 2016 at 11:17 pm #218681
La La Land seems great! They push the release date to DecemberMarch 12, 2016 at 2:01 am #218682

I agree about LaLa Land. I find it curious they moved it to such significant release date. If it ends up being good it will also stand out for being more light hearted compared to the other major contenders. Also, if the film and Chazelle are up against multiple veteran filmmakers (Ang Lee, Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese). Because of this he might stand out as the young fresh voice. The voters have also proven they love him since they awarded Whiplash all of those OscarsMarch 12, 2016 at 12:09 pm #218683This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.March 14, 2016 at 10:32 am #218684
Copy/pasted my response from a different thread – but, thought this was relevant, re: BoaN as a potential front funner:
I am not really sure about Birth of a Nation as a front runner. Yeah, it
emerged from Sundance with a massive pick-up and mega-watt buzz AND it
should play perfectly into the post OscarsSoWhite narrative but the
actual reviews were kind of middling? At least the ones that I read.
They essentially said this movie is speaking to what is going on in
contemporary American discourse and is therefore important but the
actual film making is unmemorable. I feel that the opposite is usually
true – critics wrapped up in the Sundance hype will praise a festival
darling to the high heavens and then when it comes out to the general
population the reaction is more muted. It hardly ever goes from OK to
amazing. Did anyone else get that sense or am I alone?
As for these options – maybe Silence. I think the move to December bodes well for La La Land and I was a big fan of Whiplash so I’m excited for this one (depite the stupid title).
Having read Girl on the Train, I highly doubt it gets anywhere near picture. It was essentially an inferior Gone Girl knock off (which struggled to get even the one nom for Rosamund).
