Netflix in November: Doctor Strange,16 Candles,Children of Men, etc...

Time to play Streaming Roulette.Each month,to survey new streaming titles we freeze frame the films at random places with the scroll bar and whatever comes up first,that's what we share!

Here's what's new on Netflix...

When you leave,you should forget me.

The English Patient(1996) won 9 Oscars.亚博主页Nine!As much as that's a wonderful movie -- and my god it hurts to look at these two (Ralph Fiennes and Kristin Scott Thomas in they're prime) they're so superhumanly gorgeous -- 9 is a lot.I'm glad Oscar has recently moved away from giving all the statues to one movie.It's been 10 years since we've had that kind of overkill (Slumdog Millionaire with 8)...and lately things have been winning closer to 3-5 which is more than enough for most movies,even the great ones...

22 is today's magic number.Two working directors,Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese,are ever inching up the statistics of "Directors who've guided the most Oscar-nominated performances"with 18 and 22 performances,respectively,thus far.William Wyler and Elia Kazan are still the champs but Martin Scorsese could eventually topple Kazan's record.This year's Scorsese pictureSilencedidn't manage an acting nomination (it's nominated only in cinematography) though some were rooting for Issei Ogata's sly supporting role as The Inquisitor.So Scorsese's number remains 22.

Most Performances Nominated From Their Films

  1. William Wyler (36...with 14 winners)
  2. Elia Kazan (24...with 9 winners)
  3. Martin Scorsese (22...with 5 winners)
  4. George Cukor (21 ...with 5 winners)
  5. Fred Zinneman (20 ...6 winners)

It seems unthinkable now that the first two nominated performances Marty directed were by women,since he never again directed a female-focused picture afterAlice Doesn't Live Here Anymore(1974) but it's true.The Scorsese list of 8 supporting actresses,7 lead actors,5 supporting actors,and 2 lead actresses follows...
