Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Willem Dafoe is Monumental in "At Eternity's Gate"

by Eric Blume

Willem Dafoe plays Vincent van Gogh inAt Eternity's Gate,director Julian Schnabel's film about the last year in the life of the great Dutch painter.And Dafoe's delivers a magnificent performance here: his face is the canvas of the film,in all its agony and ecstasy.

Schnabel,a painter himself who made the stunning filmsBefore Night FallsandThe Diving Bell and the Butterfly,gives us a deeply detailed movie of a painter by a painter.The mechanics of landscape and portrait painting,the walks to the viewpoints,the tools,and the intimacy with the subject all become the fabric of this movie.Schnabel's attention to these subtleties establish his credibility and give the movie real texture...

More Fall Festival Happenings!

Chrishere with more news for the fall festivals!We're counting down the days until Nathaniel and I are in Toronto,and TIFF just announced all of their Canadian titles to be seen at the festival.Most notorious among them is the delayed Xavier Dolan filmThe Death and Life of John F.Donovan,which will be a world premiere.Producers had previously noted that the film would be likely for the fall fests,but it's post-production woes made those comments a bit in flux.Regardless,we are very curious to see Dolan's first English language effort and his bursting cast that includes Jacob Tremblay,Natalie Portman,and Kit Harrington (but not Jessica Chastain,left to the cutting room floor).

Another noteworthy announcement is that the New York Film Festival has chosen its closing film: Julian Schnabel's Venice-bound Van Gogh biopic starring Willem DafoeAt Eternity's Gate.The film joins that fest's opening nightThe Favouriteand centerpieceRoma,which will each play other festivals.It had been unclear in the past few months if the film would be released in time for the 20189 Oscar season but CBS films looks to open the film in November.Can we bank on Dafoe as one of our Best Actor sure things this year?And could Schnabel return afterThe Diving Bell and the Butterflygot so close to Oscar?
