    Swinton was admittedly great, but she wasn't nominated this year because the movie was released in late 2011. And, to further be that guy, if you like the movie you should absolutely read Lionel Shriver's book. It was the first thing of hers I'd read, and it trumps the movie in virtually every way. And I love the movie.

    I was going to say the same thing, but I looked it up and it actually didn't get theatrical release until January 2012, which is what determines the year of awards eligibility. It made the festival rounds in 2011, but that doesn't count as a release.

    I thought about that, too, but IMDB has listed a December 9, 2011, New York non-festival release date. L.A.'s listed as January 20, 2012, but the New York release would trump that, right? I admit I don't know all the ins and outs of Oscar regulations, so I could be totally wrong. It's been known to happen.

    You are correct. I have read a few different reports about the release dates. It did get a limited release in both NY and L.A. in December 2011.

    My weekend consisted of the following:

    Magic Mike - Excellent, in all the ways that "Steven Soderbergh making a male stripper movie" would suggest.

    Celeste and Jesse Forever - Intriguing premise, but awful execution.

    Lastly, I watched Robert Altman's Nashville yesterday morning. It was fucking amazing. I've had trouble with some of Altman's stuff before, but this movie - seemingly the one where his trademark style was perfected - was a masterpiece, a sprawlingly heartfelt collision of lovers, dreamers, entertainers and string-pullers. It's the kind of thrillingly alive cinematic canvas where it feels like anything could happen at any time. After digging this and McCabe & Mrs. Miller as much as I did, I may need to go on a 70's Altman binge in the near future.

    Felt a little bit under the weather this weekend so decided to just go a movie marathon type deal. First off I finally watched the Bourne Trilogy. Received them as a gift a few years back but never watched them until now. After the first one my thought was why did I wait so long to watch it and had the same feeling after all of them. I thought all three were great. Next I went online and streamed the Bourne Legacy and what a downer. Not that I was expecting it to hold up or anything but shit. When it first started it actually was good and I liked the concept of it. However one of the worst stupidest endings I've ever seen in a movie. Last movie I watched was That's My Boy. It was on HBO or one of those channels last night so I just figured what the hell. I thought it was going to be a stupid movie and it was for the most part. However that shit was hilarious, the most I've laughed during a movie in a long time.

    I watched that on Friday as well. I though it was decent and had enough laughs to keep me entertained. At least it was only 90 minutes so it didn't drag too much. I don't know whats up with comedies these days but 2 hour comedies generally don't work and it seems like a lot of comedies lately have been way too long (aka Bridesmaids, 5 year engagement, etc).

    I watched Sound City on Saturday. The documentary by Dave Grohl on the Sound City Studios. Was really entertaining and amazing to see how many great albums were recorded at that place. Good job by Dave on his first film.

    Also, Lars von Trier's The Nymphomaniac has been purchased by Magnolia Pictures. They will apparently not be finished with it until after Cannes, but hopefully it'll land before the end of the year.

    Watched/listened to Possession (1981) today at work after seeing it referenced on another board. What a crazy movie. Kind of Euro-Lynchian. Anyone else seen it? It's not universally acclaimed but it was weird enough to be entertaining.

    I somehow missed Possession even though Cinefamily played it around 15 times last year. I did, however, see Zulawski's On the Silver Globe:

    Quote Originally Posted by schoolofruckus View Post
    I liked On the Silver Globe quite a bit more than Chris did, I think. It is unequivocally one of the most bonkers films I've ever encountered - the kind of movie that dares you to doubt its existence even as it unspools in front of you. I've put that description on a variety of films from the masterful The Holy Mountain to the in-no-way-masterful-but-thoroughly-entertaining Southland Tales; yet this one outpaces either of those (and anything else that comes to mind) in its commitment to formal and philosophical audacity and hallucinatory originality. There were stretches where I could have believed that it was literally made on a different planet.

    It's a film that has survived a rare degree of butchery. Legend has it that production was shut down in the late 70's by the Polish Minister of Culture (no doubt fearful of Zulawski's complex viewpoints and affinity for the extreme) with a considerable amount of material left to shoot, with costumes and sets and many other resources immediately seized and destroyed. When Zulawski was later persuaded to salvage the surviving footage of his would-be masterpiece, he opted to narrate the unfilmed portions of the script over nondescript footage filmed in then-contemporary Poland rather than attempt to create the film's visionary universe a second time. It's a decision that makes more than a little sense (I can only imagine how creatively exhausting it was to concoct the first time), but in practice - and in tandem with the film's far-reaching plot, which concerns an astronaut's journey to the moon to free a civilization spawned during a previous astronaut mission from the terror reign of a mutant race of bird-men - the result isn't so much a film that you follow as one you chase.

    Nevertheless, while it is absolutely a draining experience to sit through, it hung together for me because I felt it was a work of uncommon substance. It's pretty rare to see a film where characters routinely shriek existential poetry in between sequences of orgy and impalement, but Zulawski (in what research suggests is the raison d'etre for most of his work) expertly uses grueling physicality as a gateway to intellectual transcendence; in this case, he has crafted a landmark portrayal of the birth of civilization and the philosophical progression mankind has taken from the spiritual toward the secular. That's a really simplistic way of putting it, and I think I've made it clear this is a film that is absolutely not going to be fully digested on a single viewing (or potentially a hundred). But I am super gratified to see that, contrary to my expectations after last night's screening, it is available on DVD (albeit in 1.33 rather than its glorious native 1.66), and thus I will probably have the chance to refine my impressions of it. Regardless, if you live in New York and you haven't solidified your plans to get loaded for St. Patrick's Day, I would suggest you head down to BAMcinematek. This shit will get you fucked up in ways you can't even dream of.

    If you haven't seen it already, The Long Goodbye is fantastic 70s era Altman. I watched it on Netlfix for the first time a couple months back and enjoyed it as much as any of his films.

One of Matt's friends mentioned that Greenaway had intended the film as a satire of Margaret Thatcher, which I find amusing....but then, I just found this movie extremely fucking amusing overall.
    With the massively NSFW trailer for Greenaway's new one coming out this past week, I decided he's the director I'll delve into in the next few months. Watched ^this tonight, it was the first of his films for me as well. It really felt like I was watching a live play for a lot of it...gorgeously shot, the costume work was phenomenal, probably the most theatrical film I've ever seen.

    It looks surprisingly awesome. They took some of the cheese out (it'll be a different franchise without Bruce), but it looks pretty sweet. I'm wondering if they plan on making just this single film, or a trilogy.

    Why the fuck is youtube loading like I have a 56K? What is even more frustrating is the advertisements before the video plays load/play seamlessly without any wait, stops, or stutters. But the second the actual video starts, its like my internet has gone to complete shit.
    Anyone else having this issue?

    On Topic: Evil Dead looks absolutely amazing. I haven't been this excited to see a horror movie in an incredibly long time.
