"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

2 days til Oscar.Offscreen Oscar pairs

by Nathaniel R

With just 2 days to go until Oscar let's talk famous couples who've both been Oscar blessed.This year we havelovedthe offscreen symmetry ofA Star is Born's Sam Elliott finally having an Oscar nomination to match his beautiful wife's;Katharine Ross was nominated for Best Supporting Actress forThe Graduate(1967) and now Elliott has a matching nomination in Supporting Actor just before their 25th wedding anniversary.They were married around the time Elliott started work onMask(1985) and Ross started work on the Dynasty spinoffThe Colbys(1985-1987).They co-starred together just last year (albeit briefly) when Ross played Elliott's character'sex-wife inThe Hero(2017).

It's fairly rare for two members of a couple to win or be nominated for Oscars while they're together (lots of Hollywood relationships being short-lived) but the gold standard is surely Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward...亚博主页

Beauty Break: The Men of Cannes

Vasilli Schneider & Niels Schneider

Remember French-Canadian Niels Schneider,the object of affection for both the male and female leads of Xavier Dolan'sHeartbeats?Apparently he's but one of 4 (!) Schneider brothers -- there was a 5th who died very young :( -- who all appear to be in showbiz: actor/models/musicians whatnot.And here's Vasilli and Niels together at the premiere ofKnife + Heartat Cannes.

In our enthusiastic relentlessness about actresses we invariably ignore actorsso before the final ceremony let's not let Cannes end without a visual tribute to the best snacks at Cannes...

Cannes News: Everbody Knows,The Poster Unveils,and Netflix Whines

It's still wintry here in NYC (groan) but Spring technically arrived a little while ago which means that the Cannes film festival is right around the corner.Here are three pieces of news involving the festival which will run from May 8th to May 19th.

The Poster
This year's poster,pictured above,is a quad rather than a horizontal for some reason.Usually they come in both formats or are just horizontal.It's based on the work of stills photographer Georges Pierre and the Jean Luc Godard filmPierrot Le Fou(1965).That's two posters based on Godard films in fairly quick succession.Last year's poster featured 1960s Italian sex symbol Claudia Cardinale but the year before that the poster was in tribute to Jean-Luc Godard'sContempt(1963)!'Maybe Cannes ought to look beyond the 1960s and Godard sometime soon?,' he suggested with ribbing affection.

Opening Night film and the Netflix controversy after the jump...

Review: Darren Aronofsky's "mother!"

This review contains mild spoilers from the first half of the film since everything is essentially a spoiler given the cryptic promotions.The review was previously published in Nathaniel's column atTowleroad.

"Baby?"is the first line spoken in Darren Aronofsky's new filmmother!but not its first image.The film begins with a defiant girl burning in a house consumed by fire.Javier Bardem collects a gem from the ashes.He places it on a shelf with other less brilliant but similar gems and we watch as the house restores itself from blackened ash.What to make of this rebirth… or is it a timelapse reversal of the destruction?Are we seeing the future or the past?

Cut to Jennifer Lawrence,waking up suddenly in bed.Where is her husband?


While Lawrence is the star she's a cypher-like presence in this particular film (new for her) a mostly passive figure to whom the action happens...We learn very little about her marriage besides the fact that he is a writer and she spends her time restoring their massive home.

Then a knock on the door…
