He goes into the aspect ratio thing re: Barry Lyndon in the doc. This has been discussed ad nauseam since the release, but Vitali is right. (Here, all one has to do is look to the Taschen book on Kubrick, where everything was approved by Jan Harlan, who doesn’t appear to be on speaking terms with Vitali; it’s pretty…
Ha! Man, The Unspeakable Act. Sallitt’s a huge Rudolph fan, by the way. Can’t wait for his new one.
Actually, Rocket has a shockingly large part.
If it makes it any better, I don’t think he had to work very hard to make this.
Disappointingly, there isn’t.
Which one is still filming? (“Wrapped” ≠ “finished.” Cannes accepts films in rough cuts and regularly screens stuff in work-in-progress form.)
Counterpoint: Stonehearst Asylum is pretty good.
Scaramucci (who somehow has an exec producer credit on Paterno) is def the guy who bought the pink Cadillac.
It’s the film’s. I haven’t read the book, but I understand the plot is significantly reworked. In the movie, the company Ben Mendelsohn’s character works for, IOI, makes its real-world money selling VR gear, which makes for a good recurring sight gag of billboards hawking a full-body suit that allows you to “FEEL THE…
The BFG is the only Spielberg movie to be shot digitally.

An exploitative debt economy where those who can’t make their payments are sent to corporate goldfarming centers that operate like a worse version of 19th century debtors’ prisons.
YES. Fehér is criminally neglected.
Counterpoint to the addendum: He’s great in The Lost City Of Z and actually pretty good in Ritchie’s King Arthur.
Livanov’s Holmes is unorthodox, but unearths lost shades of the character. If Brett is the Kenneth Branagh version of the St. Crispin’s Day speech, then Livanov is kind of like the Mark Rylance.
I’d assume it’s partly the violence. It’s not bloodily gruesome, but very matter-of-fact. Dogs bite, after all. Also a Jeff Goldblum-voiced dog gossiping about who might be mating with whom on Trash Island is instant PG-13 minimum.
Have you, uh, ever seen a Wes Anderson film?
