-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!

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 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.

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.

Yeah it didn't work for me either. I can understand why it's popular, and objectively it gets points for being original and memorable, but for me it was both of those things for the wrong reasons...the whole style and tone really rubbed me the wrong way. I didn't find it funny at all, I laughed maybe twice in the whole film, and my audience of about 30 people didn't seem tickled either. The film and humour did feel particularly "American" to me (like, I could imagine American audiences wailing with laughter) - which isn't inherently bad, of course, just something that may not translate very well internationally. Anyone else get that sense?

Vever (2018), a new short film by Deborah Stratman will be streaming until January 8, 2019 on the The Walker Art Center website:

https://walkerart.org/magazine/deborah-stratman-vever

I'll watch it today after work, looks very interesting. Just found out about it. Stratman's stuff is usually good.
Deborah Stratman brings past perspectives into the contemporary moment in a montage of unfinished film footage from artist Barbara Hammer with evocative sound, texts, and teachings from artist Maya Deren. Vever poetically draws connects between three generations of women filmmakers who separately, and now together, have taken on unknown challenges, and opened themselves up to reinterpretation in their filmmaking practices. (2018, video, 12 minutes)
There is a little essay on the link as well.

What's the deal with Dutch movies and sex? It seems like every Dutch movie I watched this year has at least one sex scene. Just watched my second Dutch movie of the month and in both movies some adult man has sex with a minor girl. Is this their way of attracting an audience?
