If this is a farewell, he goes out on the highest of highs. alternating bleak pessimism and radiant beauty, Godard doubts everything he's ever done, art, European legacy, and the essence of humanity. happy birthday, grumpy old man.

-While all three actresses in The Favourite can fall under lead OR support, I think Rachel makes the best case for the "lead", and Olivia the least. The BIFA, which The Favourite had just swept, did have the nominations the same way you did, but it was just because Rachel was already nominated as lead for Disobedience and Emma is American. For the Oscars it'll be supporting or nothing for Olivia; Rachel might just steal a best actress spot(which will be very competitive this year), but most likely supporting or nothing too; Emma is the worst of the three anyway, so if the other two don't get in, she shouldn't neither.

-Mahershala might not be as much a lead as Viggo, but sticking him in supporting actor is just wrong, if that happens it will confirm that Oscars still white af.

-If Elizabeth Debicki doesn't get a supporting nom, I will lose whatever little respect I still have left for the Academy

-I hope Spike Lee doesn't get a best director nom for that manipulative piece of crap.

Fox Searchlight is officially campaigning her as lead, and voters tend to do what they're told in this sense (hence ridiculous situations like Rooney Mara and Alicia Vikander being nominated as supporting in 2015).

Mad that Sophie from Peep Show will (pretty certainly) be an Oscar nominee soon. She'll always, always be Sophie to me!

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

I can understand those two but with Olivia it makes absolutely no sense when there are two other actresses who clearly have bigger roles than her in the film, well I hope she gets a nom anyhow.

This video has been making the rounds as Conan recently stated it was the worst interview he ever did. I found it really entertaining, though I'm pretty sure Ferrara was high on heroin.

Jeanette finally has English subtitles. A very absurdist and fun film. A metal/drum and bass/rap musical featuring people who can't really sing and are terrible at dancing. I was getting a bit bored by it at the halfway point but then the rapping and dabbing uncle came in and everything changed.

Also, this is the guy who made the music for the film, and yes this is pretty much how it is in the film:

BlacKkKlansman is online
quite a meh film tho imo
SpoilerShow
couldnt buy the finnish actor as a person from finland probably, he was years and years in soap opera when i was kid and in tees with very different character, maybe thats why
Interesting. As an Amurrican, I had no idea the actor playing Felix was a non-American, let alone Finnish.

Anyways, I felt somewhat similarly about the film as Timec above, it was mostly more conventional and I suppose "crowd-pleasing" than I figured it would be going into it, save for some trademark Spike Lee-isms like the fiery opening segment with Alec Baldwin. Probably not quite as incisive of a commentary on the current racial climate in the US as it seems to think it is, going off of that ending, but still, it's an entertaining story with a well-balanced mix of humor and gravitas. Chi-Raq was messy but more "incendiary" and thought-provoking, probably.
he is very vocal fishing and nature advocate here :P
yet to see chi-raq

I'm most likely gonna try watching it on weed later today. I hope that won't be a bad idea.

I have a new favourite pre-1910s film. https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/gre ... fireworks/

The tinting makes the fireworks look better than they actually are. I had the same thoughts of it as one letterboxd review. This is almost like a proto-abstract film.

Lemme know if ISIS murder recruitment videos are more or less effective while being stoned (...there's a pun there, somewhere...).

It wasn't a good idea. It was anxiety inducing and there were many instances of me saying out loud "WTF IS GOING ON". I'll see it again sober.
