"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

Honorary Oscars: Donald Sutherland in "Ordinary People"亚博主页

Lynn Leereflects on Honorary Oscar winner Donald Sutherland's work in a former Best Picture...

The first time I sawOrdinary People,I remember thinking it was very good,very sad,and very WASPy,and that the acting was outstanding across the board.  I was most impressed,if also most frustrated,by Mary Tyler Moore for playing so convincingly against type as the chilly,brittle,allergic-to-grief Beth Jarrett;found Timothy Hutton's guilt-racked Conrad the most relatable;and Judd Hirsch's warm,no-BS shrink the most appealing.  Yet the character I ended up feeling the most sympathy for was Donald Sutherland's Calvin,who's forced to accept the disintegration of the family he fought so hard to preserve.

The Furniture: Grotesque Extravagance in Fellini's Casanova

"The Furniture,"byDaniel Walber,is our weekly series on Production Design.You can click on the images to see them in magnified detail.Since the Honorary Oscars are handed out next week,亚博主页here's a Donald Sutherland film for you!

Federico Fellini didn't much like Giacomo Casanova,the famously amorous subject of his meandering fantasy-biopic.The director may not have liked Donald Sutherland,either.The actor was required to shave his head and sport both a false nose and a false chin to play the long-winded lover.The costumes aren't especially flattering either.Fellini's Casanovais an erotic descent into Hell,a grotesque pageant of 18th century moral abandon.It frequently borders on the disgusting.

It was also on the edge of Oscar's attention,sliding into only two categories.WhileFellini's Casanovadid win for its costumes,its production design missed out entirely.Anyone betting that year would likely have lost money;La Dolce Vita,8 ½andJuliet of the Spiritswere all nominated for both.

Though this sexualized panorama thrilled the costume designers,it may have shocked too many art directors.Like Sutherland's performance,it's proved to be a bit too much for the Academy.That's a shame,because the contribution of legendary designer Danilo Donati is dazzling...

TIFF: Jamie Bell,Daniela Vega,and Donald Sutherland

our ongoingTIFF adventures

Helen Mirren & Donald Sutherland at the Leisure Seekers premiereI've hit a brick wall here on Day 5 for which I blame the parties of days 1 through 4...or rather my eagerness to attend them.As with most week-plus long festivals much of the press and industry vanishes after the first half of the fest so...grab the free drinks,scrumptious eats,and celebrity chatter while you can.Saturday night's Sony Pictures Classics dinner presented the opportunity to congratulate Donald Sutherland on his Honorary win.Which I took don'cha know...

And the Honorary Oscar Goes To...

Jason fromMNPPhere -- the four fine movie folks being given Honorary Oscars this year have been announced and they are (drumroll please) the actor Donald Sutherland,亚博主页the directorsCharles Burnett(Killer of Sheep) andAgnès Varda(Cleo from 5 to 7),and the cinematographerOwen Roizman(The Exorcist).You can read the statement from the Academyright here,which dives into each of this exemplary quartet's many many accomplishments...

...but can I just get a rowdy huzzah for Donald Sutherland in particular,who has long been the recipient one of my fiercest "HOW HAS HE NEVER BEEN NOMINATED BEFORE"battle cries?(I meanSix Degrees of Seperationalone.) And heck the 82 year-old actor is still turning in fine work,so perhaps he's still got a shot.Somebody give this truly grand actor a truly great role again,please.(And now that he's off the checklist maybe next year they'll get around to Mia Farrow?)

So what do we think of this foursome?
