Angelina%20Jolie%20and%20Johnny%20Depp%20in%20The%20Tourist.

 

Is Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp's 'The Tourist' taking a trip to Oscar?

 

The 2011 awards season already looks like a bumpy road with studios strategizing to hold certain contenders out of the festival circuit ("The Fighter," "True Grit,") while others go full bore for maximum effect ("Black Swan," "The Social Network").  Now, an interesting carrot is being thrown into the mix with the new Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp thriller "The Tourist."

Described as a part drama, part espionage flick, "The Tourist" is an original conceit by a slew of well known screenwriters including Julian Fellowes (Oscar winner for "Gosford Park"), Christopher McQuarrie (Oscar winner for "The Usual Suspects"), Jeffrey Nachmanoff ("Traitor") and William Wheeler ("The Hoax") (WGA credits pending, mind you). The plot centers around Frank (Depp), who is an American traveler visiting Italy trying to mend a broken heart. He soon meets Elise (Jolie), an "extraordinary" woman who purposely engages him in order to throw agents off the trail of her former lover.

"The Tourist" is being directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who received massive critical acclaim for his last film, "The Lives of Others" which won the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award in 2007.  And, of course, Jolie is a two-time nominee who won a Best Supporting Actress statue for "Girl, Interrupted" back in her blood necklace days and Depp has been nominated three times for "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl," "Finding Neverland" and "Sweeney Todd." So, yes, there is a wee bit of awards pedigree at work here.

With the picture in production just this past spring, it wasn't expected to be released until 2011.  Instead, GK Films, which financed the film on its own, is releasing it domestically through Sony Pictures on a just announced opening date of Dec. 10.  Not only does that put the movie in prime position to make some holiday box office, but a player in the award season mix.  And it also puts it up against another contender, David O. Russell's "The Fighter," and Walden Media and 20th Century Fox's "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader."

The question is whether "The Tourist" will turn out to be more "Bourne Identity" or "Talented Mr. Ripley' fare.  If it's the latter (and if there had been ten nominees that year Minghella's triumph would have been in), then it could absolutely crash the party.  If it's more akin to "Bourne" or even "Valkyrie" quality, then GK will have to live with just having its first hit on its hands.

Unfortunately, the buzz won't start at Venice, Telluride, Toronto or even during the New York Film Festivals.  But by mid November?  We'll know.

"The Tourist" is now opening nationwide on Dec. 10.

Se ele seguir fielmente o que  se espera dele não deve ir receber não. Aliás, fiquei surpreso, nunca imaginei o Godard ganhando oscar, nem o honorário; Mas é meio impossível não reconhecer a importância e o talento do cara mesmo. 

 

Aliás, o Eli Wallach também vai receber o oscar honorário. Mais que merecido. Tuco 16. Gostei da ponta dele em the ghost writer esse ano

Fui assistir a Mother And Child do Rodrigo Garcia. Mais uma vez, ele faz um filme competente, simples e que funciona. Elenco todo incrível mas Annete Bening imprimi a melhor atuação da carreira. Sensacional. A mudança na trajetória da personagem é fabulosa.

 

E vai ser esquecida por tudo... pffff...

A Single man visto.  O filme peca em vários aspectos, não senti segurança na direção, mas não chega a ser ruim.  Firth está ótimo, digno das indicações que recebeu, num personagem totalmente diferente do que ele tinha feito até então, mas eu ainda prefiro o Mandela do Morgan Freeman (só falta eu assistir o vencedor).  Agora, porque diabos Julianne Moore não foi indicada?Excepcional! E a trilha sonora? Deus, que coisa linda!

Tyler Perry, Oscar nominee?

Posted by Guy Lodge · 2:39 am · August 29th, 2010

 

 

colored1.jpgOne

thing I like about David Poland as an awards analyst is that he often

makes an effort to expand the tight circle of contenders by bringing

little-buzzed names into the conversation. Needless to say, this kind of

punditry can lead to a lot of dead ends, but every now and then he

lands on a genuine sleeper — which is why this casual aside in his

Friday box-office column caught my eye:

Of the current 16 [Lionsgate] $20m domestic openers, 7

are Tyler Perry (which is why For Colored Girls… is a lock to end up in

this year’s Oscar race come December)…

In case it hasn’t been on your radar, he’s talking about “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf,”

Perry’s filmization of Ntozake Shange’s landmark 1975 stage study of

the African-American female experience. The play, a poetry-based piece

taking on issues of abuse, rape, abortion and eventual empowerment, is

pretty strong medicine; it’s difficult to imagine how it might work on

film, and how it’ll mesh with Perry’s brash creative sensibility.

All Good Things fixou data de estréia pra Dezembro. A Magnólia adquiriu o filme depois de todas as complicações envolvendo o diretor e os Weinstein. As reações das test-screenings pra atuação da Kirsten Dunst tem sido um dos pontos altos da recepção do filme. O Ryan Gosling é o protagonista.

THE CONTENDERS (2010)

 

 

Leonardo%20DiCaprioThis

hearty list of film awards contenders, organized by and ranked in the

various Oscar categories, will surely evolve over the course of the

season. We learn pretty much, oh…each and every year. As new competition

hits the street (and as you, the readers, send in valuable information),

names will be added to the collective. As films open and disappoint (as

they typically do), names will be removed. The lesson in all of this?

Things…change. But no matter the twists and turns of the season, we’ll

keep this hopefully comprehensive database up-to-date as the year pushes

forward.

E saíram as primeiras reações (algumas muito entusiasmadas!) de Black Swan (post vai ser longo):

 

Black Swan wows critics at Venice premiere

 

Black-Swan-venice.jpg

Black Swan had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival last night, and many critics are leaping around in grand jetés of praise:

SCREEN INTERNATIONAL: Already back on track after Venice Golden Lion winner The Wrestler, Darren Aronofsky soars to new heights with Black Swan, an enthralling drama set in the competitive world of ballet. Alternately disturbing and exhilarating, this dark study of a mentally fragile performer derailed by her obsession with perfection is one of the most exciting films to come out of the Hollywood system this year. Indeed it’s the perfect film to open the autumn season with its gala at Venice tonight, a bold display of cinematic fireworks that will leave audiences breathless…

Black Swan will be warmly received in Venice, Toronto and beyond and it should pirouette all the way to the Oscars next Feb. If the film is ultimately too unsettling to snag main prizes, it has at least one nomination in the bag for lead actress Natalie Portman who gives one of “those” performances, transforming herself after ten months of training into an accomplished ballerina, almost uncomfortable to watch as she consumes her difficult role…

Portman is captivating as Nina and not just because of her dancing prowess or her lean, emaciated ballerina’s frame. Like Catherine Deneuve in Repulsion or Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby, she captures the confusion of a repressed young woman thrown into a world of danger and temptation with frightening veracity.

… It’s a mesmerising psychological ride that builds to a gloriously theatrical tragic finale as Nina attempts to deliver the perfect performance.

VARIETY: A wicked, sexy and ultimately devastating study of a young dancer’s all-consuming ambition, “Black Swan” serves as a fascinating complement to Darren Aronofsky’s “The Wrestler,” trading the grungy world of a broken-down fighter for the more upscale but no less brutal sphere of professional ballet. Centerstage stands Natalie Portman, whose courageous turn lays bare the myriad insecurities genuinely dedicated performers face when testing their limits, revealing shades of the actress never before seen on film

In the film’s staggering opening sequence (arresting enough to give skeptical male auds reason to stick around), Nina dreams of herself in “Swan Lake’s” lead role, circled by dark forces. …exaggerated stylistic choices extend to the production design as well, adding yet another motif: Reflective surfaces, mostly mirrors, offer fleeting glimpses of Nina’s other half.

Aronofsky seems to be operating more in the vein of early Roman Polanski or David Cronenberg at his most operatic. Though the director never immerses us as deeply inside Portman’s head as he did Mickey Rourke’s in “The Wrestler,” the latter third of “Black Swan” depicts a highly subjective view of events that calls to mind the psychological disintegration of both “Repulsion” and “Rosemary’s Baby.”

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER [less impressed]: “Swan” is an instant guilty pleasure, a gorgeously shot, visually complex film whose badness is what’s so good about it. You might howl at the sheer audacity of mixing mental illness with the body-fatiguing, mind-numbing rigors of ballet, but its lurid imagery and a hellcat competition between two rival dancers is pretty irresistible. Certain to divide audiences, “Swan” won’t lack for controversy, but will any of this build an audience? Don’t bet against it.

Only Aronofsky suggests, right from an opening dream sequence, that Nina might be cracking up. He keeps the camera close to his heroine, not just so objects and people can suddenly loom next to her as in all horror flicks, but to suggest a certain amount of paranoia and claustrophobia… Aronofsky, working with an original script by Andres Heinz that later was rewritten by Mark Heyman and John McLaughlin, never succeeds in wedding genre elements to the world of ballet. The film takes its cues from “Swan Lake” itself as demons, doubles and death dance in Nina’s head. She can only approach perfection by becoming the dual character she plays — the innocent and the evil.

Portman, who has danced but is no ballerina, does a more than credible job in the big dance numbers and the tough rehearsals that are so essential to the film. In her acting, too, you sense she has bravely ventured out of her comfort zone to play a character slowly losing sight of herself. It’s a bravura performance.

Obsessed with Film -

Best film I’ve seen all year.

Left me devastated, excited, tense and emotionally drained. Tarantino will be a fool if he doesn’t give this the Golden Lion (unless something even better is coming up!). Aronofsky has made his first masterpiece and Portman must now be favourite for the Oscar.

A perfect film that blends The Red Shoes with Antichrist, via Cronenberg.

-----

Menções a Repulsion, Rosemary's Baby, Polanski, Cronemberg e etc. Vou tentar não ir muito pelo hype mas tá difícil. E a Portman hein ? Parece ser o papel da carreira dela, acho que pode rolar indicação. Mas ao mesmo tempo não sei se o filme vai ser o tipo de coisa que a academia gosta, e pelo visto pode gerar reações divisivas.
