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

The Unbearable Linkness of Being

The Hollywood ReporterDianne Wiest to headlineThe Corrections.I know this will be old news to some but I can't believe I haven't mentioned it.A lead role for Our Miss Wiest,only one of the greatest living actresses in the world.
Tom Shonegrades the movies.I love when critics explain their grading systems as it's always such a personal and inexact science.Only six "A+"ever.
Film Studies For Freelooks back briefly atBrokeback Mountain,which happens to be one of Mr.Shone's six "A+"films.

Salonoffers up a library of film criticism essentials
They Live by Nightgreat piece on the super complicated editing challenges of The Tree of Life.

We had folders for Earth,Sky,Water,Animals,Miscellaneous,and then within those,bins that were more specific."

GuardianonAmélie's (2001) cultural endurance.The whimsical worldwide hit is now ten years old.
Laughing Squid"Teenage Mutant Ninja Noses"
Felix in Hollywood"can someone please explain this picture to me?"Tallulah Bankhead lol.
Awards DailyThey aren't reading the Best Picture nominees in alphabetical order this year.Nor will the board show us how many titles will be announced.Suspense!

Kaufman on the set of Quills (2000) with Kate WinsletFinally,a very happy 75th birthday to the writer/directorPhilip Kaufman,who people unfortunately rarely talk about these days.Why this is is surely a combo of his infrequency of working (only 12 features in a 47 year career),his lack of masterpieces,and his films being soundly of the adult persuasion in an era when the movies have become increasingly 'you know...for kids.' (I mean,even Scorsese is making family pictures now.)  My favorites from Kaufman's oeuvre are three:The Right Stuff(1983) which was nominated for 8 Oscars though Kaufman was oddly not one of them - they had to make room for Ingmar Bergman in Best Director which we shan't ever complain about but it's strange that the competition that wasn't dropped came mostly from what one might call "actor's films"亚博主页which are usually the first to go when the lone wolf directorial nod comes-a-calling;The Unbearable Lightness of Being(1988,Kaufman's sole nomination - Best Adapted Screenplay);and the NC-17 scandal that wasHenry and June(1990).This trinity of "bests"is not-so-coincidentally composed of consecutive projects.When artists are on a roll,they're on a roll.It always seems to come in waves,doesn't it?

He's finally made another movie.His thirteenth film isHemingway and Gelhorn(2012) which stars Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen.

Have you seen any Philip Kaufman pictures?
