October Highlights

October was busy busy busy with two festivals,the classicNYFFand the newMiddleburgand our semi-annualOscar Horrors(though a fourth season is somewhat unlikely given that we're running out of nominees outside of music and sound categories!).Here are 16 highlights from the spooky best-weather month in case you missed any of them.The fall is too too short,don't you agree?

Will there ever be a 1963 Supporting Actress Smackdown,or is it going to be a running joke that this particular Oscar race will never be repeated here?

I'd love to read about Kiss Me Deadly and The Third Man - two perfect and perfectly weird,underdiscussed noirs.

For Cape Fears 25th Anniversary will you be doing a smackdown and also can all readers say where Lange belongs in Lead or Supporting Actress,looking forward to everything.

I am hearing that Chastain is her best yet in Miss Sloane.

Looking forward to the film noir discussion,so many great ones.Hope In a Lonely Place,Scarlet Street,The Big Heat,This Gun for Hire and Nightmare Alley are all included.

I was wondering the same as MrW about the '63 Smackdown.I watched all three and have my comments all pulled together..

Another vote for the 63 Smackdown.Please,before the 2016 Oscars get out of hand.亚博主页
