Oscar 2008: Previsões


Recommended Posts

Depp nem mais está na minha lista de previsões...

O curioso é que ele ganhou o SAG há alguns anos por Piratas do Caribe e agora nem foi indicado por Sweeney Todd. Qual foi o último Melhor Ator a vencer o Oscar sem ser indicado aquele prêmio?




O American Film Insititute divulgou seu Top 10 anual:





with the pulse of a young filmmaker, but is constructed with the depth

and maturity of an American master at the top of his game. Sidney

Lumet’s dark and intricate tale takes place in a world you will not

want to enter, but the powerful screenplay by Kelly Masterson grabs you

and won’t let go. The film is a grand opera of immorality and is staged

exquisitely by Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ethan Hawke, Marisa Tomei and

Albert Finney, whose performances fuse to form a diamond that sparkles

with the dazzlement of dysfunction.


THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERLY is a soaring cinematic

achievement, one where the transportive nature of film takes us inside

the mind of a paralyzed protagonist. Director Julian Schnabel astounds

in his fusion of poetry, humor and profound humanity to examine the

struggle from inside the mind as the character reaches for the

impossible. Janusz Kaminski’s brilliant cinematography illuminates the

film’s commanding point of view, visually enveloping the audience in

the deeply emotional, but remarkably unsentimental screenplay by Ronald

Harwood. Adapted from an extraordinary true story, the film challenges

us to look into a mirror, appreciate the fragility of our own lives and

marvel at the power of the mind.


INTO THE WILD is a vast journey across America - and

deep inside oneself. Writer/director Sean Penn’s sensitive adaptation

and expansive direction brilliantly captures the exuberance and

idealism of youth - and the danger of pushing love away. The story

lives in the eyes of Emile Hirsch, the warm smile of Catherine Keener,

and the luminous spirit of Hal Holbrook. INTO THE WILD celebrates the

dreamer in all of us - and the danger of dreaming alone.

Seven more of these gems, after the cut.


Deep inside JUNO is the tiny but true heartbeat of

American film. Director Jason Reitman has an extraordinary control of

tone, shifting sympathies and a clear respect for the fully realized

characters created by screenwriter Diablo Cody. The result is a

surprise in almost every scene as cliches are upended and life is

celebrated at every turn. Ellen Page delivers the breakthrough

performance of the year - one that embodies the comedy inherent in

being a misfit and the strength that comes when facing life’s biggest



KNOCKED UP delivers the funniest, freshest comedy of the

year. Writer/director Judd Apatow stretches the boundaries of romantic

comedies by introducing one of American film’s most unlikely pairings,

and then brilliantly crafts a story where moment by moment, laugh by

laugh - the couple embrace each other - and the audience - in a world

of humor and heart. The film marks a star turn for Katherine Heigl, who

lights up the screen with every smile.


MICHAEL CLAYTON is pulse-quickening entertainment for

both the heart and mind. Driven by a screenplay that ranks among the

finest in American film, Tony Gilroy’s film astounds at every turn -

each word, each scene resonating beyond their literal meanings. George

Clooney shines as one of the great actors of his generation, adding a

dimension to his movie star persona that harkens back to the classic

roles of Humphrey Bogart - still and silent, dark and deep.

Extraordinary supporting roles by Tom Wilkinson and Tilda Swinton add

humor and horror to the riddles posed throughout the plot, and when the

answers begin to arrive, no one is safe at the film’s surprising and

spectacularly satisfying end.


NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN breathes new life - and death -

into the classic American western. Joel and Ethan Coen construct the

film like a steel trap, one that springs and snaps with a ferocity

seldom seen in the movies. The film features a killer combination of

acting talent - Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones and Javier Bardem, who

creates and then unleashes one of the great screen villains of our

time. Driven by heart-stopping tension and pacing, the Coen Brothers’

masterful juxtaposition of savagery and innocence is a powerful tale of

morality in a bleak world where a life can end with the flip of a coin.


RATATOUILLE is a soaring, sumptuous feast for all who

love the movies. Writer/director Brad Bird continues to define himself

as one of the great filmmakers of our generation, this time with the

inspiring tale of a rat who aspires to be a chef. This animated gem

creates environments that are so fully realized, so rich with detail,

that both young and old alike will feel as though their passports have

been stamped and their palates sated. At the film’s significant heart,

is the relationship of artist and critic - and to celebrate their union

here, AFI raises a glass of a fine French cabernet to RATATOUILLE.


THE SAVAGES paints an intimate portrait of America’s

emotional future. Writer/director Tamara Jenkins’ richly detailed

character study beautifully captures the complexity of a sibling

relationship and the struggle to deal with an aging parent. Laura

Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman - two of our finest actors - portray

people at an awkward moment in their lives who step backward into their

heart and heroism. Intelligent and entertaining, funny and yet

rigorously unsentimental, THE SAVAGES places our destiny firmly in the

hands of talented artists, and, ultimately, proves the power of film in

bringing us all together to celebrate life.


THERE WILL BE BLOOD is bravura filmmaking by one of

American film’s modern masters. Paul Thomas Anderson’s epic poem of

savagery, optimism and obsession is a true meditation on America. The

film drills down into the dark heart of capitalism, where domination,

not gain, is the ultimate goal. In a career defined by transcendent

performances, Daniel Day-Lewis creates a character so rich and so

towering, that “Daniel Plainview” will haunt the history of film for

generations to come.

Eu vi Atonement e gostei muito!!! Não duvidando da capacidade de cada um, mas uma visita desse filme aos cinemas pode causar impressões mais fortes - eu ao menos não conseguiria ver pela primeira vez esse filme na telinha do PC. Não vi aquela obra surpreendente que muitos diziam. Pelo contrário, é uma obra que contempla atos triviais de seus personagens num calmo desenvolvimento de personagens.


Vi tbm Rendition (O Suspeito). As teorias políticas propostas pelo filme são simplistas e o personagem do Gyllenhaal é muito fraco (apesar do bom trabalho do ator, em sua melhor composição!!!), já que suas atitudes no terceiro ato são inverossímeis. Ainda por cima, o final é hollywoodiano e tira o impacto das (excelentes) cenas de tortura vistas anteriormente. Tem seus erros e méritos e se segura em seu elenco. Mesmo com o "Just tell me he's okaaaaaay", Reese Witherspoon é a segunda melhor do elenco, atrás apenas do ator que interpreta Anwar El-Hibrahimi. Queria que tivessem dedicado maior tempo a ela (mas por outro lado, se dedicassem seria Oscar injusto na certa). Bom filme, mas que pode ser visto em dvd numa boa...




Alguém por aqui já viu o novo filme do Rob Reiner, The Bucket List (Antes de Partir)? Achei o trailer acalentador, mas melodramático pra caramba no finalzinho. Tenho medo de ver Jack Nicholson e Morgan Freeman mal dirigidos (ainda mais com a mão pesada de Reiner em seus últimos trabalhos). Vi até uma cena besta com o Sean Hayes dizendo pro Nicholson "I'm proud of you". Errrrrr....09
