    Our Children/À perdre la raison (Joachim Lafosse, Belgium)

    Tabu (Miguel Gomes, Portugal)
    An exquisite, absurdist entry in the canon of surrealist cinema, Tabu is movie-as-dream—an evocation of irrational desires, extravagant coincidences, and cheesy nostalgia grounded in serious feeling and beliefs. An Adopt Films release. [Berlinale.]


    SABINE AZEMA IN YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET

    You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet/Vous n'avez encore rien vu (Alain Resnais, France)
    The latest from 90-year-old Alain Resnais is a wry, wistful and always surprising valentine to actors and the art of performance starring a who’s-who of French acting royalty. [French release date September 26, 2012.]

    For the filmlinc.com source of this information click on the logo above or HERE. The blurbs are from the FSLC.

    There are 32 films, several more than some years. If you followed the Filmleaf Forum 2012 Cannes thread you'll recognize AMOUR, BEYOND THE HILLS, HOLY MOTORS, LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE, NO, and YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET. I'd forgotten, but also at Cannes was Lafosse's OUR CHILDREN, and so was HERE AND THERE and Raul Ruiz's THE NIGHT ACROSS THE STREET. So that makes nine from Cannes, plus two from Venice and three from Locarno. LIFE OF PI and FLIGHT are opening and closing films that will not reward the film festival goer with anything not later to be in a local theater. This will be true of some others, including AMOUR, possibly HOLY MOTORS (both debuting theatrically at Film Forum in NYC, as I have mentioned). LIFE OF PI AND FLIGHT will have wide distribution. Films that have a US release coming outnumber those without release almost two to one.

    This one is not in the Main Slate, but part of the Gala Tribute to Nicole Kidman:

    The Paperboy (Lee Daniels USA)
    Nicole Kidman gives one of her best performances in this steamy southern gothic directed by Lee Daniels (Precious) and co-starring Zac Efron and Matthew McConaughey. A Millennium Entertainment release.

    Stills show some of the ladies.

    Nor will I fail to sharpen it. Too many pleasing things at once might cause it to go soft.

    That's what it's all about. Looking forward to reading about the offerings. The Ang Lee sounds great, among others.

    I'm salivating. Resnais, Ruiz and Kiarostami are 3 of my favorite filmmakers ever. Then a new movie from Ruiz's widow and closest collaborator Valeria Sarmiento! Latest films from the great Sally Potter (Yes will one day be recognized as a masterpiece) and Noah Baumbach. I'm also excited about films from two totally original Portuguese filmmakers (Gomes and Rodrigues). It's almost too much for a couple of weeks. I'd rather watch these one at a time over the next 2 years or so.

    More about Tellulride



    MORE ABOUT TELLURIDE

    Ben Affleck presented his newest film ARGO (U.S., 2012) as an unofficial part of the Telluride Film Festival program known to attendees as a “Sneak Preview.”


    39th Telluride Film Festival guests and program participants include: Oskar Alegria, Nikolaj Arcel, Ramin Bahrani, Noah Baumbach, Gael García Bernal, Satya Bhabha, Wayne Blair, Katriné Boorman, Serge Bromberg, Ken Burns, Sarah Burns, Roger Corman, Marion Cotillard, Mark Cousins, C. Chapin Cutler Jr., Christine Cynn, Ziad Doueiri, Geoff Dyer, Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, Dave Eggers, Michael Fitzgerald, Scott Foundas, Liz Garbus, Jack Garfein, Greta Gerwig, Shirley Henderson, John Horn, Viktor Denes Huszar, Katrina Kirk, Robert Kirk, Shaun Kirk, Stephanie Kirk, Ed Lachman, Pablo Larraín, Valentina Leduc, Laura Linney, Ray Liotta, Leonard Maltin, Haifaa Al Mansour, Todd McCarthy, David McMahon, Deepa Mehta, Kad Merad, Mads Mikkelsen, The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, Dror Moreh, Kim Morgan, Errol Morris, David Moynihan, Bill Murray, Marielle Nitoslawska, Alessandro Nivola, Joshua Oppenheimer, Alexander Payne, Christian Petzold, Sarah Polley, Sally Potter, Juan Carlos Rulfo, Salman Rushdie, Carolee Schneeman, Matthias Schoenaerts, Donald Sosin, Mickey Sumner, Margarete Tiesel, Paolo Cherchi Usai, Ariel Vroman and Michael Winterbottom.

    Articles about film festivals indicate Telluride is listed as the world's most expensive to attend but also selective and cool. Hollywoor Reporter:
    Only the most passionate film buffs and serious film journalists attend Telluride. That is because they are the only people willing to spend the hefty sum required to get here (it's in the middle of nowhere, or at least a long way from any major city) and to see the films (everyone -- even journalists, who usually are granted complimentary press credentials by other fests -- must buy an expensive pass to ever see the inside of a theater). The titles aren't even revealed until the day before the festival begins. And Telluride is famous for its "TBA" screenings, which often wind up being high-profile films. Last year's Friday afternoon offered the world premiere of Payne's eventual best picture Oscar nominee The Descendants; this year's it's the unofficial world premiere of Affleck's Argo.

    Consequently, it is an ideal testing ground for a film: If a film plays well here, it's a good indication that it will play well elsewhere on the awards circuit, and it often leads to a higher-profile rollout. Three of the past four best picture Oscar winners -- Slumdog Millionaire, The King's Speech and The Artist -- played Telluride. If a film does not play well here (as happened last year with Butter), a studio can quietly begin to reposition it as a project that is not intended to compete for awards since there really aren't enough people here to crucify it beyond repair.

    The festival, realizing its value to studios, has become increasingly selective over the years about which films it accepts. These days, it won't even consider a film that previously has screened in North America. (For instance, I have heard that the highly anticipated The Master was disqualified after its writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson organized a few test screenings of it around the country this summer.) Films that already have premiered overseas, however, are still welcomed. (This is why many hot titles from Berlin, Cannes and Venice make their first stateside appearances here.)
    Promo quotes:
    While most festivals offer sightings of filmmakers as well as films, the population of Telluride — festival and town — is small enough that the ratio of auteurs to filmgoers may be higher than anywhere in the world. – Godfrey Cheshire, the New York Press

    … the undisputed gem of American film festivals." – William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligence

    N.B.: TORONTO, just before New York.

    f

    Toronto, Sept. 6-12, 2012, just precedes the Nyff every year, so Toronto buzz accompanies some Lincoln Center screenings. On its current web page the TFF modestly proclaimes itself "THE LEADING PUBLIC FILM FESTIVAL in the WORLD." The TIFF's size, calendar time, and North American dominance make it a promotional platform for big fall-release American films. It's also, like the New York Film Festival, an Atlantic showplace for some of the best films that have debuted in earlier Europeam and Asiam film festivals. The Nyff differes in being more highly selective and focused on quality rather than promotion, seeking to be a careful sampling of the creme-de-la-creme of this year's new cinematic fare from around the world, including some premieres. The Nyff doesn't give awards so selection for the main slate counts a an honor in itself. It is not particularly a promotional event. But released films shown there are of course lookuing for distributors and NYFF screenings gain further prominence to a film, particularly if they garner a rave from a NY Times reviewer. Ang Lee's LIFE OF PI world premiere on the Nyff opening night will be the biggest promotion.

    Take a look at an intro piece from the SF Chronicle and you'll find Toronto is giving a debut to some of the hotest or more hyped semi-prestige fall-winter US movie releases, such as:

    ON THE ROAD (Walter Salles) (not so successful at Cannes)
    LOOPER (Rian Johnson) (Highly touted by Mike D'Angelo)
    ANNA KARENINA (Jon Wright)
    CLOUD ATLAS (Tom Tykwer)
    (Wonderful novel by David Mitchell; arguably unfilmable)
    THE MASTER (Paul Thomas Anderson) (it wasn't finished in time for Cannes)
    THE COMPANY YOU KEEP (Robert Redford)
    TO THE WONDER (Terrence Malick)
    (word is this is a fizzle)
    ARGO (Ben Affleck) (already debuted at Telluride, as mentioned above)

    And somewhat less promoted items such as

    HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA (Adam Sandler),
    END OF WATCH (Michael Pena)
    HYDE PARK ON THE HUDSON (with Bill Murray as FDR)
    THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER
    (high school coming-of-ager cult novel adaptation which I liked a lot),
    SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS (Martin McDonagh) (with psycopathic thespians Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, and Chris Walken--this is likely to be hilarious and brilliant: this very bold and witty playwright's movie directing debut was the excellent 2008 IN BRUGES, also with Farrell.)
    QUARTET (Dustin Hoffman's directing debut).

    These should all open in US theaters before the end of 2012, some such as PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER and LOOPER, this month. None of them are part of the New York presentations.

    I have posted Mike D'Angelo's Toronto 2012 Twitter reviews on my website here.

    BUT FIRST - VENICE




    Venice lineup. The P.T. Anderson seems to be the most anticipated. As mentioned it wasn't ready in time for Cannes, and now here it is.

    VENICE FILM FESTIVAL
    31 August - 10 September 2012


    One of Europe’s most prestigious film festivals, the Venice Film Festival is an opportunity not only to see cinema in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but also to catch exciting new films fresh before they go on to play at the Toronto Film Festival in September. There is a four-day overlap, actually, between Venice and Toronto, and a two-day overlap between Toronto and the Nyff. What's a gal to do?

    MUBI has the lineup here.

    VENICE 2012 AWARDS:
    Venezia 69
    The following prizes were awarded at the 69th edition
    :

    Leone d'Oro (Golden Lion) for the best film: Pietà by Kim Ki-duk
    Leone d'Argento (Silver Lion) for the best director: Paul Thomas Anderson, for The Master
    Special Jury Prize: Paradise: Faith by Ulrich Seidl
    Coppa Volpi for the Best Actor: Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix, for The Master
    Coppa Volpi for the Best Actress: Hadas Yaron, for Fill the Void
    Premio Marcello Mastroianni, for the best emerging actor or actress: Fabrizio Falco, for Dormant Beauty and È stato il figlio
    Osella for Best Cinematography: Daniele Cipri for È stato il figlio
    Osella for Best Screenplay: Olivier Assayas, for Something in the Air
    "Luigi de Laurentis" Award for a Debut Film: Mold by Ali Aydın
    It's been reported that THE MASTER would have won Best Film, but for a rule that no film can win more than two prizes, which required a re-vote and led to PIETÀ's award.

    DENNIS LIM has a roundup of Venice 2012 on the NYTimes Arts Beat column. He noted that " half the titles in the official competition had religious themes" so PIETÀ's win made sense.

    BACK TO THE NYFF





    Sept. 4, 2012: it's been announced that the press & industry screenings of the 2012 Nyff will run Sept. 14 - Oct 14. I'll be there. Stay tuned.

    This will be Filmleaf's 8th year of full coverage of the Nyff -- 2005-2011 can already be found in the Festival Coverage pages. We'll provide reviews of all the 2012 main slate films.


    The Filmleaf Festival Coverage thread for Nyff 50 (2012) begins here.

    My favorite event at the NYFF this year: http://www.filmlinc.com/nyff2012/fil...t-masterpiece1. Of course I am biased: Bill Rothman is my friend and mentor and a main reason why I decided to return to academia.

    Sounds good. I'll keep it in mind. But actually it is "standby" now; would be hard to get in for it.

    Oscar is referring to:

    Sun, Oct 1411:30 am (WRT)
    Re-Introducing Marnie: William Rothman on Hitchcock’s Last Masterpiece
    Alfred Hitchcock 1964
    USA | English | Format: 35mm | 130 minutes

    His friend and mentor Bill Rothman is a professor at the University of Miami.

    Prof. William Rothman, the dean of American Hitchcock scholars, will introduce and then analyze Marnie after our screening, the first presentation of a new chapter in the updated edition of his book Hitchcock: The Murderous Gaze.
