<--- just noticed this
my blogfriend Boyd at European Films has a wonderful exclusive photo gallery up from Cannes 07. Including shots of Asia Argento (pictured left which he gave me permission to snatch), Diego Luna, the jury, and several international filmmakers... Check it out if you haven't yet seen it.
Moviehole Battlestar Galactica --next season, the 4th, is the last
Cinephilia writes a brief open letter to Quentin Tarantino
Coming Soon announced a new dramatic project for Helen Mirren, Gaza, which reunites her with some of the Prime Suspect team. Now this is something you do to follow up an Oscar win --not freaking National Treasure 2. Ugh.
As Little As... I didn't know Patrick Stockstill, AMPAS historian had died.
The Brave One trailer
I had a hunch that this would be a good role for Jodie Foster --and even predicted her for another nomination in the 'early bird' Oscar guesswork. I think the good role hunch is correct. The Oscar nom... who knows. The Brave One just might might be a, like 28 Weeks Later , a genre piece doubling as political allegory. We'll see. I get that vibe a teensy bit from this trailer but it's possible that I'm projecting based on Neil Jordan sitting in the director chair. Before you watch you should probably know that the trailer shows too much. Be warned.
