Quentin Tarantino / Re: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
« Last post by csage97 on Today at 06:00:51 PM »
Starts playing a day early (the 25th) at my local cinema! Can't wait.

After watching that clip, I'm still trying to decide if I like Leo DiCaprio or not. I thought he was great for Django Unchained and Titanic, but I watched Inception recently and wasn't too hot on it -- which could just be the Christopher Nolan writing and directing, because I think his dialogue is usually bad. The only movies I really liked from him were Dunkirk and Interstellar. But even with Dunkirk, Hoyt van Hoytema was the star of the show in my eyes.

I still need to see Wolf of Wall Street, but between Inception and this clip, I can't help but FEEL DiCaprio acting. As in I'm always drawn to the fact that he's acting rather than suspending my belief. We'll see. I'll probably enjoy it anyway.

This is a poorly-cut trailer IMO, but still looks very promising.

It's right in your face credits, not something you have to wait for. Anyway, that's what I read.

I think this falls under the category of helpful advice rather than spoiler, but I've encountered a rumor that

we need to stick around as there's an after-credits scene that wasn't present at Cannes.

The Grapevine / Where's My Roy Cohn? - Documentary
« Last post by wilder on Yesterday at 05:22:48 AM »


Directed by Matt Tyrnauer (Valentino: The Last Emperor)
Release Date - Limited theatrical on September 20, 2019, wide after

Roy Cohn personified the dark arts of 20th-century American politics, turning empty vessels into dangerous demagogues—from Senator Joseph McCarthy to his final project, Donald J. Trump. Where’s My Roy Cohn? unearths the origins of the seditious right wing’s ascent, revealing how a deeply troubled master manipulator shaped our current political world. This shocking film exposes Cohn’s malign influence and contextualizes him as a modern Machiavelli, tracing his rise to national prominence—first as prosecutor of the Rosenbergs, then as handmaiden to Joseph McCarthy. After these twin disgraces, Cohn re-emerges as a New York power broker, mafia consigliere, white-collar criminal, and, eventually, the mentor of Trump.

This Year In Film / Re: Midsommar

Midsommar’s most prescient warning was, instead:

DO NOT DATE A MAN WHO WEARS SCOOP-NECK T SHIRTS

I started up Hereditary again when I came home from seeing this and noticed both movies seem to share the message:

BE WARY OF PEOPLE WHO LOVE TO DRAW!
