I remember him in an interview a few years talking about how the California drought scared him; I imagine the fires must too. Maybe it's something in that vein but set in the future.

News and Theory / Phantom Blondie
Last post by Scrooby - Yesterday at 01:27:34 PM
Has anyone ever mentioned the distinct connection between the boisterous New Year's Eve party in Phantom Thread and this similarly designed scene in Blondie of the Follies (1932) starring the ultimate 1930s Hollywood insider Marion Davies?





Best wishes.

Its official US release date (not including festival screenings) was April 2022, so that's normally the metric we go by.

I'm not sure if we ever settled on which year it should fall under. I think most people saw it early this year, despite it having a lot of festival screenings last year. I saw it for the first time this March/April.

This Year In Film / Re: The Fabelmans

Quote from: polkablues on November 28, 2022, 02:31:54 PMPersonally, I don't need to see another movie about how magical cinema can be...

The Fabelmans, despite the tone of its marketing, is in numerous respects kind of the antithesis of that...

Martial arts!
Sci-fi!
A story he developed with his daughter!

If it's some Very Serious Tarkovsky/William Gibson flick that comments on society, that's great.

But maybe it's just something ridiculous and fun, too. Which is also fine.
