And I would also guess that many Academy voters are familiar with the source material itself (a lot more than many posters here, anyways) and are open to being receptive to it so long as he pulls it off.
Precisely. He’s not like a right-wing nut who studies Hitler, the book and the character are designed to expose the ridiculousness of this sort of overly-precious education type.April 10, 2021 at 12:10 am #1204189289
Yeah honestly, even though Baumbach makes some of my favorite kinds of movie, I’m honestly most excited for Greta. This feels like a baity movie for Driver (though considering he plays a guy that studies Hitler, I doubt the Academy will bite too hard), but a supporting Oscar nod play by Greta will be, in a word, great-a.
It’s satire, and given that just last year the Academy awarded someone playing a murderer I don’t think the character’s chosen subject will be too much of an issue.
And I would say they’re both Lead.April 9, 2021 at 7:17 am #1204187995
Also completely agree that Soho doesn’t feel like a true ensemble piece, nor Blonde really.April 9, 2021 at 5:55 am #1204187886
Does Seyfried have the higher end of Glinda’s range?April 9, 2021 at 5:53 am #1204187879
I just think Nightmare Alley is similar to characters we’ve seen him do before and there are bound to be way more interesting and challenging performances next year to choose from.
It’s basically the same character arc he had in ASIB but just framed by a different movie. Yawn.April 9, 2021 at 5:43 am #1204187856
I’m loving the outfits Gaga has worn (and her makeup too), but I agree with you. At this point, the only pictures missing are the ones of the hitman assassinating Gucci (who knows if they’ll include that in the film).
The paps have been relentless but honestly the only ‘big’ scene we’ve seen is the wedding. I’ve read the book it’s based on, there is a lot of material we’ve not seen and aren’t likely to see because the paps can only pap exterior filming. I get that it feels like we’ve ‘seen the whole movie’ because there have been a lot of photos, but we really really haven’t.
Also it’s a well-documented true story so I’m not sure how far it can be ‘spoiled’.April 8, 2021 at 10:48 am #1204186460
Driver looks completely different. Don’t often see him with hair this short.
They’ve taped his ears back.April 8, 2021 at 6:26 am #1204185794
When the news about this film broke, I noticed some Driver fans weren’t happy about him teaming up with Baumbach again.
Honestly Adam Driver’s taste in movies and the movies his fans want him to do (rom coms it seems) are pretty different.
I don’t have a problem with actor-director pairings. Scorsese does it all the time.April 8, 2021 at 4:34 am #1204185599
It’s not the film crew/cast’s fault at all, but the amount of pictures coming out of this set is crazy. I haven’t seen this many photos/clips from a set in a while. Even for Don’t Worry Darling with Harry Styles there wasn’t this level of coverage. It speaks volumes on Gaga’s power though.
Also the commitment of the Italian paparazzi, which is absolutely insane. And they seem to have no filter or limit whatsoever.April 8, 2021 at 3:26 am #1204185521
And social media melts down in 3…2…1…April 8, 2021 at 3:04 am #1204185509
Apparently they are filming Patrizia and Maurizio’s wedding for this today in a church in Rome.
This car certainly looks wedding-ish.April 6, 2021 at 5:23 am #1204181358
100% Driver and Carax for me, I cannot wait to see what the hell this film is going to be.
My reasoning is that Driver as a performer has a very distinct physicality (and I don’t just mean his overall largeness, though he is very large) that he uses really well – you can see it especially in stuff like Girls and Star Wars. Even in something like While We’re Young he does a lot of really specific hand and arm movements that really help sell that character.
Carax as a director loves to get performances with unique and intense physicality from his actors, his films basically require them, and so for me those two are a match made in weird arty cinema heaven.
