"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Three Questions in the News


As Carrie Bradshaw would say,some of today's movie news got us thinking.The news offered more perplexion than usual.We'll present you with the questions and maybe you can help with the answers.Or just join in the bewilderment:

How many franchises can one actor be in?
You'd think being Superman would be enough.But no Henry cavill is joining Tom Cruise inMission Impossible 6.No details about who he's playing.Simon Pegg,and Rebecca Ferguson are expected to be back for the new adventure.Jeremy Renner is not.

Who is starring in Jennifer Kent's follow up toThe Babadook?We know who Sam Claflin is,as we've seen him in a few films includingThe Hunger Games.But he's not the lead,the new film titledThe Nightingaleis set in Tasmania in the 1820s,and follows a young Irish female convict whose family is murdered by a British soldier.With the help of an Aboriginal tracker,she heads for the wilderness in hope of exacting revenge.Have you heard of Aisling Franciosi?Well she nabbed the coveted lead role.Digging into her IMDB we found out that she played Lyanna Stark inGame of Thrones,you know in that famous flashback scene.She was also in Ken Loach'sJimmy's Hall(2014).Can't say we remember either performance,but we are very excited to see whatever Kent chooses to show us.

And finally buried in a news item announcing Andrew Dominick's new film;War Partywhich is billed as an action-adventure movie about Navy SEALs that will star Tom Hardy,is this nugget about his long gestating Marilyn Monroe project,Blonde:

he has been trying to get his Marilyn Monroe movie Blonde off the ground [],but has struggled to find a leading lady everyone can agree on

Hmmm.The names that have been publicly shared so far were Naomi Watts in the first iteration and then a few years later Jessica Chastain.We wonderwho else was up for playing Marilyn and was deemed not appropriate?

Doc Corner: Nick Cave and The Beatles Show Mixed Musical Results

Thankfully for us,Nick Cave is not a musician who is easily distilled into a formula blueprint.He isn't an artist who is easy to pigeonhole and that means anybody who attempts to make a film about him is forced to think outside of the box.Consider20,000 Days on Earthin which Cave celebrated his 20,000thday of living by driving around with friends like Kylie Minogue and Ray Winstone.That film,partly fictionalized,was only two years ago so if it feels somewhat excessive to have another Nick Cave documentary so soon then the circumstances around Cave's life since then mean a lot has changed since his 20,000thday on Earth that has dramatically altered him.

One More Time with Feelingis directed by Cave's friend Andrew Dominik who Cave had worked with onThe Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.Like that film,this is another wholly singular film,the pairing of the two proving to bear the most unique of fruits.Initial sequences suggest that this is going to be a slog of a documentary,the pairing of famous director not known for documentary filmmaking and a famous subject who many filmmakers might just feel the need to point a camera at and shoot and feel as if their work is done.

That is blessedly not the case.
