I meant that they still do, yeah (esp those who read Ms. 45 as the apotheosis of feminist filmmaking).

Close, but not quite. I called it an antithesis to feminist filmmaking.

meh, here a 'thesis, there a 'theosis...

I didn't care for Climates at all, tho it was kinda crazy.

Waters' #1 and 2 would make a felicitous doublebill. His list is the only one made up entirely of films that were commercially exhibited (at least in NY) in '06.

Bill Weber (Dr Morbius), Thursday, 30 November 2006 16:05 (fifteen years ago) link

I always find it a bit ridiculous to put re-releases or 'found' films in a year-end list. "Army of Shadows" is 36 years old - just 'cuz Americans didn't see it, doesn't mean it didn't exist.

It's kind of like listing a bunch of [insert director here, probably someone with a Criterion box set] because (the editorial) you saw them for the first time this year.

milo (milo), Thursday, 30 November 2006 16:37 (fifteen years ago) link

It has some validity if there was no way (aside from hunting down an imported video or somethin') you could see it before this year in yr home country. But I generally make a separate category myself.

It also helps that it looks like the worst year ever (again) for medium-to-widely released new films.

as in, an indie Afterschool Special wins an armful of Gotham Awards, whatever they are...

http://carpetbagger.blogs.nytimes.com/2006/11/30/full-court-press-for-half-nelson/

At the Gothams, there are just six, count ‘em, six, competitive awards. And by the time the evening had finally wound down, “Half Nelson” won half of them, including Best Feature, Breakthrough Director and Breakthrough Actor...

Shareeka Epps, one of the young actors in “Half Nelson,” won the actor award, an honor she shared with Rinko Kikuchi for her role as a deaf Japanese teenager in “Babel.”

Ms. Kikuchi gave her own speech — through tears and in English. It included shout-outs to everyone connected to the production and of course, Mom and Dad. “It has been an incredible journey,” she said. “With this award I am very encouraged and ready for more.”

I love it. In the John Waters sense.

You think the Devil Wears Prada will have so many nominations or are you just pulling my leg here? I thought it was mildly entertaining but even Meryl Streep coudln't save that flick...

nathalie (stevienixed), Friday, 1 December 2006 18:41 (fifteen years ago) link

I think these are the actual nominations for the Golden Satellites, which nobody cares about.

This means that National Board of Review will be announced in a couple of days, right?

jaymc (jaymc), Friday, 1 December 2006 18:52 (fifteen years ago) link

dicaprio's is a supporting role?

deep space nine (deep space nine), Friday, 1 December 2006 18:54 (fifteen years ago) link

Eric, I think u hafta at least tell us who picks the Golden Satellites.

the DiCaprio supporting thing is the usu guy-starring-in-2-movies strategy, cept here he's not nom'd for Blood Pudding

Eric, I think u hafta at least tell us who picks the Golden Satellites.

I wish I knew. Not literally, but I wish I knew. I guess people whose credentials didn't stack up to the standards of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assoc.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Saturday, 2 December 2006 23:47 (fifteen years ago) link

so no 'buzz' at all on the Soderbergh-Clooney Good German?

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Monday, 4 December 2006 14:20 (fifteen years ago) link

Based on the trailer, I expect the cinematography to be a disaster - DV with a crappy black and white conversion. Ugliest movie since Sin City.

milo (milo), Monday, 4 December 2006 18:57 (fifteen years ago) link

http://reporter.blogs.com/risky/2006/11/dga_nyc_the_dud.html

On the other hand, Peter Travers likes it.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Monday, 4 December 2006 19:02 (fifteen years ago) link

DV with a crappy black and white conversion

Wait a sec, maybe that was just the trailer you saw? Isn't the hype on this one that S.S. used 1940s vintage equipment to shoot it?

Bill Weber (Dr Morbius), Tuesday, 5 December 2006 14:12 (fifteen years ago) link

Yeah, I thought it was like Far From Heaven meets Elephant (the White Stripes album, not the Van Sant film).

jaymc (jaymc), Tuesday, 5 December 2006 14:18 (fifteen years ago) link

I got a severe eau du Borzage from the trailer - maybe he bought Frank's camera.

David RER (Frank Fiore), Tuesday, 5 December 2006 14:59 (fifteen years ago) link

I don't think the 'vintage' angle extends to celluloid - just lighting, editing and sound. I'm pretty sure this is related to his HD deal with Mark Cuban.

milo (milo), Tuesday, 5 December 2006 15:21 (fifteen years ago) link

http://www.apple.com/trailers/wb/thegoodgerman/hd/ - trailer I'm watching. There's no depth to the B&W (compare to Clooney's movie last year, which was shot on color film and converted giving it the widest possible tonal range). This just has the look of a digital image converted later on.

isn't blood diamond supposed to be incredibly awful?

deep space nine (deep space nine), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 21:38 (fifteen years ago) link

God, the NBR blows. Idiotic that they have a separate list for independent films. (And what, Little Miss Sunshine isn't independent because it appeared in their overall top 10?) Also, Stranger Than Fiction was not that great of a screenplay.

jaymc (jaymc), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 21:40 (fifteen years ago) link

Between the Top 10 overall and the Top 10 indies, I feel safe in declaring this to be the worst year ever for American cinema. Jesus.

milo (milo), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 21:41 (fifteen years ago) link

"independent" as someone observed long ago is a marketing term.

has Letters from Iwo Jima even been released in LA?

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 21:42 (fifteen years ago) link

Letters from Iwo Jima has been everywhere for at least a month.

Everywhere but my house.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 21:44 (fifteen years ago) link

nowhere in New York.

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 21:44 (fifteen years ago) link

Anyway, I'm sort of relieved that it wasn't Dreamgirls. The NBR was that flick's best chance until the West Oklahoma Critics Circle announces their winners.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 21:45 (fifteen years ago) link

jaymc (jaymc), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 21:46 (fifteen years ago) link

It got pushed up when Flags underperformed.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 21:47 (fifteen years ago) link

Flags has vanished from NY, but no Iwo.

is that the Oklahoma! Critics Circle?

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 21:50 (fifteen years ago) link

How nuts is it that Flags nearly got an entire row of perfect ***** ratings in the most recent Film Comment critics' chart?!

Eric H. (Eric H.), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 21:55 (fifteen years ago) link

I dunno. Sometimes I don't even know half those chart guys are. I'm not even sure I saw anything **** new this year. Yet I generally like Eastwood when he's not ripping off Rocky IV.

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 22:03 (fifteen years ago) link

That John Waters list is better with his comments, of course:

1 United 93 (Paul Greengrass) The best movie in the last five years. No cheap shots in this one! I have friends who would watch a snuff film, yet they refuse to see this great action picture—I don’t get why.

2 Jackass Number Two (Jeff Tremaine) Playing on more than three thousand screens, Jackass 2 was the number-one-grossing movie in America on its opening weekend—and the male stars eat shit and drink horse semen for real. They’re nude a lot, too. If this isn’t cultural terrorism, I don’t know what is.

3 The Last King of Scotland (Kevin Macdonald) Forest Whitaker tops the performance of Joseph Olita in 1981’s Rise and Fall of Idi Amin, one of my all-time favorite trash masterpieces.

4 Shortbus (John Cameron Mitchell) When was the last time the star of a film rimmed someone, sang “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and walked away with his dignity? A touching, lovely movie that I hope gets turned into a Broadway musical.

5 The Departed (Martin Scorsese) The best-acted film of the year from America’s coolest director. The final shot is beyond perfection.

6 Sherrybaby (Laurie Collyer) Maggie Gyllenhaal plays an ex-convict drug addict (the kind I see in Baltimore every day), and the film is so depressing and great that I wish I could see it with an all-female prison audience.

7 Inside Man (Spike Lee) Handsome bank-robbing outfits—so chic, so scary, so fashionably conformist.

8 Sleeping Dogs Lie (Bobcat Goldthwait) A feminist tale of a girl who once blew her dog and mistakenly tells her boyfriend. Now there’s a high-concept romantic comedy.

9 Hamilton (Matthew Porterfield) A tiny, minimalist art film from Baltimore that made it to New York and is astonishing in its simple beauty, amazing performances, and hypnotic pace. The real thing.

10 Marie Antoinette (Sofia Coppola) Sofia Coppola is Karen Kilimnik!

Marmot (marmotwolof), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 22:17 (fifteen years ago) link

he oft has bad taste when watching films, too (tho I've only seen Shortbus and Ditztoinette).

Dr M (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 22:22 (fifteen years ago) link

Yeah but I'm intrigued by Bobcat Goldthwait Feminist Dog Blowing Movie now that I know what it is.

Marmot (marmotwolof), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 22:26 (fifteen years ago) link

Yeah, that one's been totally Netflixed.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 22:54 (fifteen years ago) link

many x-posts I was thinking Letters from Iwo Jima was the title of the American part.

milo (milo), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 23:47 (fifteen years ago) link

Between the Top 10 overall and the Top 10 indies, I feel safe in declaring this to be the worst year ever for American cinema. Jesus.

C0L1N B... (C0L1N B...), Thursday, 7 December 2006 05:04 (fifteen years ago) link

I'd at least wait until the formerly-Village Voice polls come out before declaring that.
