"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

Doc Corner: Movie Stars - Fonda,Kael and Dukakis

by Glenn Dunks

DOC NYCis still going in New York,running until this Thursday the 15th.We're looking at just a very small selection of films screening at the festival including these today based around three iconic names in American cinema: film critic Pauline Kael,and Oscar-winning actors Jane Fonda and Olympia Dukakis.

I noted on social media as I sat down to watch my screener of Rob Garver's biography that there were certainly worse ways to spend one's Sunday evening than surrounded by the words of the late,great Pauline Kael and an abundance of film clips.Sometimes a film can give you exactly what you ask for and that's exactly what I received fromWhat She Said: The Art of Pauline Kaelabout the much loved (and loathed) film critic...

Review: "Book Club"

byChris Feil

2018 summer superhero movie season has peaked,now with the arrival of its definitive chapter:Book Club,where Diane Keaton,Jane Fonda,Candice Bergen,and Mary Steenburgen readFifty Shades of Greyand reclaim the romance in their lives.Think they can't handle not one but a slew of Thanoses?Well,consider that they are also teaming up with four Oscars,亚博主页six Emmys,twelve Golden Globes,and several cases of pinot grigio.

Steenburgen is the entrepreneurial straight shooter Carol,the one most in tuned to her own needs but perhaps not to others'.As Sharon,Candice Bergen battles her timid seriousness against the need for a new beginning.Fonda's Vivian is the group individualist,drinking rosé when the rest prefer white,hating everyone else's favorite book selections.And Diane Keaton as...Diane (it's really something to see Diane Keaton do Diane Keaton drag) is the guarded one,initially seeming to be the least distinct character but ultimately reveals a woman burying much of what she thinks and feels.

Vintage '70 - Marinate in it!

The Supporting Actress Smackdown 1970 Edition arrives in three weeks (we've moved the date to May 13th) so as we approach and you vote (hint hint),let's talk context in movies and entertainment...

Great Big Box Office Hits: When it comes to box office,there are a lot of competing sources about what films were massive hits prior to the internet era when tracking success became such a cultural activity.But all sources basically agree that there were five true behemoths at the movies in 1970.The top four were the tearjerkerLove Story,the all-star disaster flickAirport,the Altman comedyMASH,and the war dramaPatton(remarkably they made up 80% of the Best Picture list...though prior to the 1980s it's always worth reiterating that the public had much more Oscary taste in their movies -- it was public taste that changed,not really the Oscar aesthetic...contrary to much of the grousing you here online about Oscar shunning hits and preferring underseen critical darlings).The fifth consensus smash hit was the Dustin Hoffman Christmas releaseLittle Big Manwhich scored only 1 nomination from the Academy for Chief Dan George in Supporting Actor;he was the first Native American to score an Oscar nomination in any category!

Chief Dan George in "Little Big Man"Beyond that quintet the details about which films were big hits gets fuzzier though various sources also list some,though never all,of these movies:Ryan's Daughter,Tora!Tora!Tora!,Chariots of the Gods,The Aristocrats,Joe,Beneath the Planet of the Apes,the documentaryWoodstock,andthe musicalOn a Clear Day You Can See Forever.

Oscar's Best Picture Nominees:Airport(10 noms / 1 win),Five Easy Pieces(4 nominations),Love Story(7 noms / 1 win),MASH(5 noms / 1 win),andPatton(10 noms / 7 wins).Our theory as to what was just outside the Best Picture shortlist plus more '70 goodies follow...
