Since a few folks have asked where/when they can see Mississippi Grind, it’s in New York now and will be expanding around the country soon: http://mississippigrind-movie.com/ticketing/
If you mean M:I 5, here ya go....
It’s just over two hours. His shortest since “The 40-Year-Old Virgin”!
For our purposes, shorts didn’t count, but I love “World of Tomorrow.” http://www.indiewire.com/survey/the-bes…
Technically, “Cartel Land” came out in July, so it didn’t count, but I’m a big fan. Still need to see “Buzzard” and “Hard to Be a God.” “Duke of Burgundy” just missed my list.
It’s in the movie, too. Also, “Always Returning,” “Here Come the Warm Jets,” “Golden Hours,” “On Some Faraway Beach” ... just a ton of Eno in there.
No, but I really am curious to check it out.
Yeah, that's what I was meaning: She's much more of a star in terms of box office and "America's Sweetheart" status. (But considering that Witherspoon has won an Oscar, the Academy must think she's a pretty decent actress, too.)
True, I just meant that, often, voters will go with a movie that reflects their values or speaks to an issue they agree with: The Fog of War, Citizenfour, Inside Job, The Cove. (Of course, there's the other side of the coin, when they go for something heartwarming/inspirational: Searching for Sugar Man, Undefeated, …
Hear hear: They're both great in that. (I also think Reynolds is good in Buried and The Voices, which opens next month.)
Every time I've ever looked in a hand mirror I've thought of the moment when Blanch figures out that looking down into a mirror makes her look old and wrinkled and has a total meltdown.
It is brought up in conversation. Certainly not a major focus of Selma, but the movie doesn't ignore it.
Yes, you're right: My brain short-circuited there. Thanks for spotting that.
Oh, that's definitely true. I just mean that I think they're even more melancholy from Punch-Drunk Love on.
God, I wish.
For whatever reason, he's actually going by "Alejandro G. Iñárritu" for this film. Not sure why that's changed.
Thankfully, they don't do that in the film: Hendrix plays covers or just jams. (Really, there's just about no live music in the movie.)
Fear not: There's much Maurice in it.
