Fences & Elle now on DVD and Blu-Ray

By the end of April nearly all theOscar's favorite 2016 filmswill be available on Blu-Ray and DVD (La La Landis the caboose on April 25th) in case you accidentally missed any.And if you purchase them from Amazon,by clicking over from TFEwe get a teensy tiny cut as an Amazon affiliate (hint hint).

Last Week's Fresh Batch
The Eyes of My Mother- Daniel recently paid tribute to this indie horror film's award winning production design film's
Jackie- We've sung its praises plenty and interviewed Pablo Larraín,too
Moana- a favorite among thepodcastteam

Brand New This Week
Elle- Verhoeven and Huppert's provocative collaboration had long legs at the arthouse and we called that Oscar nomination super early.Yay
Fences- Denzel & Viola reprising their Tony winning roles in this American classic of a black family in the 1950s from August Wilson's Pittsburgh cycle.The other nine will supposedly be filmed,too,albeit for TV rather than as theatrical features.Which is a pity sinceFencesproved the audience is there
Collateral Beauty- I swear Chris is obsessed with this film's badness.Will it one day be a camp classic?
Passengers-Daniel looked at its Oscar nominated production design.It did look like a million dollars despite its narrative problems.

How do you think these films will age?Will you be adding any to your collection?

"Elle"Wins the César

Huppert's trophy haul from ELLE is getting crazy!This post title was originally "Elle triumphs"but that would be too emphatic a statement.Paul Verhoeven's provocative black comedy about an infamous woman who reacts strangely to a rape did win the top category,oui.But Isabelle Huppert's awards magnet fascinating star turn was its only other win in Best Actress.For the 42nd annual Césars,then,it was a spread the wealth year.Xavier Dolan's all star ensembleIt's Only the End of the World,the debut featureDivines,and the acclaimed toonMy Life as a Zucchinialso won multiple prizes.

The winners and George Clooney's Honorary César acceptance speech are after the jump...

Goya Awards and Gowns

The 31st annual Goya Awards (Spain's Oscars) were held over the weekend in Madrid and we'd be remiss if we didn't share the winners -- particularly considering亚博主页we recently posted statistics about their all time favorite actresses.This year's big winners were Raúl Arévalo's revenge dramaThe Fury of a Patient Man(which took Best Film and 3 other prizes) andA Monster Calls(which took Best Director and swept the technical categories with 9 wins).

Ana Alvarez,Penélope Cruz,and Belen Lopez

Spain's Oscar submission,Almodóvar'sJulieta,won only Best Actress for Emma Suarez who plays the older version of the titular character.Incredibly Suarez also won Best Supporting Actress for another film (The Next Skin) so Spain really worships her this year.(After the jump a complete list of winners as well as other gowns and tuxes...)

Beauty vs Beast: Disobey

Jason fromMNPPhere.I probably wouldn't have thought about John Carpenter's 1988 goofy sci-fi classicThey Livein relation to politics this year if the film hadn't beendragged kicking and screaminginto the conversation by a bunch of Donald Trump's Nazi followers (in my best Carrie Bradshaw voice-over voice: "And so I wondered -- are the terms 'Nazi' and 'Donald Trump Follower' redundant?").

But now that the film has been dragged into the conversation a story about a bunch of elite monsters blinding the populace while they loot the Earth doesn't exactly sound like the world's most far-out science-fiction story these days.So with the Inauguration looming like an orange-haired mushroom cloud before us - and,on a less fatalistic note,with it being John Carpenter's 69th birthday today - let's assume our places.

PREVIOUSLYYou guys gave me hope for humanity with last week's competition facing offthe two Best Actress winners from the Globes- that's not meant as a knock on Emma Stone or her performance inLa La Landbut if a performance as sharp and unfriendly as Isabelle Huppert's inEllecan grab 70% of our vote,then maybe one day Yes We Can again.SaidEvan:

"Let's not kid ourselves: Michele could gut Mia with that ax and then send a letter of condolence back to Mia's folks in Boulder City,all before "le petit dejeuner.""
