FILM 9: From one of my favorite director’s, Robert Altman, comes tonight’s #Seventies flick, “McCabe & Mrs. Miller” (1971). Plot involves a charismatic #gambler John McCabe (Warren Beatty), who arrives in a mining #community and decides to open a #brothel. The local residents are impressed by his #confident #demeanor and fast talk, but crafty prostitute Constance Miller (Julie Christie) sees through McCabe's words and realizes he isn't as sharp as he seems. Film critic A.O. Scott (@nytimes) listed it as one of his five favorite films. #theseventies #RobertAltman #McCabe #juliechristie #warrenbeatty #western #cowboy #the_education_of_gortnacul
“The King” documentary from Eugene Jarecki takes a #musical road trip across the U.S. in Elvis #Presley's 1963 #Rolls #Royce during the 2016 #presidential #election, comparing #Elvis's transition from #country boy to "The King" to #America's transformation into an empire. In summary: “A provocative argument, but even those disinclined to be persuaded by it can enjoy the mode through which Jarecki presents it.” Our short review available now. #TheKing #nowplaying #documentary #politics #Trump #Clinton #roadtrip #folk #blue #music #americandream
It’s hard to describe just how incredible the opening scene of Social Network is: #Fincher, #Sorkin, Reznor/Ross - what a combination. Now consider the cross-layering of the life of vanity (bottom) versus the life of study (top) within the laboratory of the #Turing Test & ask yourself the question [re: self-determinacy & #Artificial #Intelligence] whether any of your independent decision-making is anything more than a social behavior instilled in you by #culture? Routines, sure. But is it worse? Maybe you’re stuck in proverbial @westworldhbo loops? Next time your date gets boring, spice it up with some #metaphysical quandaries. Or just check your #Facebook, again. 🆘
Of all the potentially great films premiering at the #Venice #FilmFestival, a @boyerased may be the most timely. Based on Garrard Conley's memoir and starring Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe and Joel Edgerton (also directed & wrote), the #film follows the son of a #Baptist #preacher who is forced to take part in a #gay conversion program.
