#CannesFilmFestival is where auteurs, stars, and journalists come together in one rosé-drenched, glamorous crush of humanity. In lieu of this year’s canceled fest, watch these award-winning movies à la maison
Martin Scorsese & Paul Schrader made their careers by diving into the troubled mind of a New York cabbie in 1976’s #TaxiDriver. The harrowing film latches itself onto Travis Bickle’s alienation through urban photography and Bernard Herrmann’s dreamy score
Steven Soderbergh kicked off his filmography with #SexLiesAndVideotape, an impressively controlled study of behavior, unraveling an extramarital affair through the eyes of a man who records interviews with women about their sexual experiences and fantasies

Warning: graphic!
This is heart breaking😢
Don't watch if you can't handle it.
But know it's there...and do something to stop it if you can.
Remember: lots of elites, politicians and celebrities are into it...

And this is one of the ways to get the "merchendise".
Another important one is the supply by children's homes.

Interesting how most of the recs for Korean Cinema given following #BongJoonHo #ParasiteMovie #Oscars wins heavily feature violence. This says more about #FilmTwitter than it does South Korean audiences. There is plenty of non-violent Korean Cinema to watch. Here's a brief list
'w' marks films directed by women. Start w/ 1996, when New Korean Cinema began cuz Bong is part of NKC. Some films might have scenes of violence I have forgotten, but they are in no way heavily violent

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood...

In 2004, I went to the @sundancefest for the first time as the assistant to an agent who had hired me roughly ten months prior with exactly zero experience in the industry.
Late in the festival at a late night party whose specifics I have long since forgotten, I met a filmmaker who had a short at the festival.

We vibed. I asked to watch his film. And I did.

It was good. Beautifully shot in black and white. Uncommonly funny. Uncommonly human.
After the festival I gave that short to my boss, who agreed about its quality (it didn't hurt that the filmmaker's manager had flagged him for her as well).

She met with him the next week and signed him in the room.

She remains his agent, and my dear friend, sixteen years later

¿Pero qué es esto? ¿todo el mundo poniendo hilos sobre películas de Corea del Sur después del éxito de 'Parasite' en los #Oscars y voy a ser el único que no haga uno?


(Intentaré ir por orden cronológico, y películas de todo tipo).
'La Criada' (1960, Kim Ki-young).

El cine clásico de Corea es una de mis asignaturas pendientes. De lo poco que he visto es esta, y es MUY recomendable (es de las películas favoritas de Scorsese). Sé que en esa época no era un cine tan prolífico como el japonés, pero algo hay.
'Whispering Corridors' (1998, Park Ki-hyeong).

Hasta 5 películas tiene esta saga de terror psicológico. Algunas mejores, algunas peores, pero no son nada memorable tampoco. Para el que le guste el género, y además con el folklore asiático, igual le merece la pena.

Did you watch the #Oscars? Did you see @ParasiteMovie make history?

Just a few years ago, this would have been impossible, because director Bong Joon-ho was on a government blacklist.

We know because some of us were on it, too.…
We are a women-led peace movement organizing for an end to the Korean War.

As recently as 2016 Bong Joon-ho was placed on a govt blacklist in South Korea aimed at curbing the speech of artists & activists, the same one that targeted us & prevented us from entering our homeland.
For us, watching @ParasiteMovie sweep the #Oscars last night was a bittersweet reminder.

Things can change so quickly. But we have so much work left to do.

.@nytimes: De’Andre Arnold, the Texas high school student who was suspended for wearing dreadlocks, was invited to last night’s #Oscars by Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union, who were producers of the animated short film “Hair Love.”
In response to Arnold’s suspension, @txblackcaucus hopes to pass a bill that would prohibit hair discrimination targeting people of color in schools and workplaces.
If you have encountered hair-based discrimination in a Texas public school, we want to hear your story.

1. During #Oscars last night, I live-tweeted how much the Hollywood studios behind the year's biggest films donated to @NRA-backed lawmakers who stand in the way of gun reform.

The top studios gave $4.2M over the last 3 election cycles. Image
@NRA @NetflixFilm @SonyPictures @WaltDisneyComp @NBCUniversal @warnerbros 2. I just don't believe that Hollywood should be funding the re-election campaigns of lawmakers who are keeping the Senate from even debating gun reform...folks like:

@senatemajldr @LindseyGrahamSC

@NRA @NetflixFilm @SonyPictures @WaltDisneyComp @NBCUniversal @warnerbros @senatemajldr @LindseyGrahamSC @sendavidperdue 3. We were so proud when over 100 Hollywood actors, directors, producers and creatives joined our effort calling on Hollywood to *end donations to @NRA backed lawmakers*…

Joaquin Phoenix!! #Oscars
I still remember — back in the 90s — when Joaquin (then named Leaf Phoenix) made the 911 call to report he was witnessing his big brother River die on the sidewalk in front of the Viper Room in the middle of the night.
The audio was leaked and the world heard a very sad kid desperately crying & pleading for help. I've always had a soft spot for him since then. Can't even begin to imagine what that must've been like.

Brad Pitt at the #Oscars : They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week... I'm thinking Quentin does a movie about it and in the end, the adults do the right thing.
Josh Gad: In fact, “Frozen 2,” or as climate change deniers call it, not “Frozen 2,” has been dubbed in 45 different languages...For instance, Canadian Elsa is basically the same, but with health care.
Julia Reichert at the #Oscars quotes the Communist Manifesto: Working people have it harder and harder these days and we believe that things will get better when workers of the world unite.

Hollywood's biggest night is here.

@NBCNews has minute-by-minute #Oscars coverage of the most notable wins, acceptance speeches, jokes and bizarre flubs. Follow along.
@NBCNews In the wake of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, membership in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has shifted, but the voting record hasn't.
@NBCNews It took all of 15 minutes and 40 seconds for the #Oscars to get political.

And it happened during the first award of the night.

#1 Acabei de ver a lista dos concorrentes no #Oscars, na categoria Documentário. O cheio de buracos #DemocraciaEmVertigem ficou ainda menor. Ainda que não fosse ficcional em vários aspectos e propagandístico do únicio ao fim, ele não dá para saída diante dos meus dois favoritos. Image
#2 O #AmericanFactory é um retrato perturbador do capitalismo chinês. Mais que um choque entre culturas, o filme dá, talvez involuntariamente, as pistas de como a #China atua. Como é o modelo de expansão rumo ao Ocidente. Imprescindível para brasileiros da @Fiesp ao @planalto. Image
#3 #TheCave, sobre um hospital subterrâneo na #Siria, é avassalador. Homens e mulheres lutando para salvar vítimas civis (a maioria delas crianças) dos bombardeios da #Russia e das armas químicas do regime sírio. Se eu fosse petista, teria vergonha de torcer para qualquer outro. Image

1/ THREAD: w/ @kitty_astra What happens when you have mass consciousness viewing a single focal point of reality, what does that do to the creation of reality?
Do "elites" have access to technology that is not privy to the regular person #ProjectLookingGlass #YellowCube
2/ Was there a problem in 2012 when timelines converged within that point in time?
How does string theory work?
How does the possibilities of possibilities work?
What is Multiverse theory?
What is Quantum Entanglement? (Cat Dead/Alive)
Mandela Effect?
3/ Is #ProjectLookingGlass creating the reality we see within the present/future moment or does mass consciousness feed #ProjectLookingGlass for the projection of the future through the 👁 of Collective Consciousness using the Television?
Future Prove Past? #TheGreatAwakening

It's #Oscars time, and here's my recap and predictions, for what it's worth (which is nothing!).

Been a particularly good movie and movie watching year, had the privilege of watching almost all the nominees across categories.

Recap of best movie nominees.
It was a traditional year in terms of very heavily back loaded nominees, with the earliest nominated best picture being Once Upon A Time In Hollywood which released in July, while 8/9 released in the festival circuit season of Oct-Dec.
This is not meant to be a trivia thread, but of course Oscars trivia are a genre of their own, and you MUST follow @BensOscarMath for that stuff. He's so good and so thorough that I won't even attempt to create any new nuggets. His Twitter feed is a necessary companion tonight.

I have a question for #Parasite director Bong Joon Ho.

I am wondering about his choice of appropriating Native imagery.

I wonder if it was a purposeful message.

As a courtesy, if you have not seen Parasite, there are minor spoilers ahead in my #thread.
In #Parasite, there are two families, one is a poor family struggling to make ends meet, they resort to fraudulently posing as potential employees to get a job with a rich family.

The mother of the rich family buys everything Native-related for her young Boy Scout son.
I won't go into details of the #Parasite film - but at one point, after an entire community is recovering from a disaster, the rich family has a Native-themed party.

Thus, the image I shared.

What are the odds of mass arrests at the #Oscars  tonight? #RedCarpet rollout? I guess we’re in anything’s possible territory.

THREAD: It is the #Oscars #SuperMoon2020 and #NATIONALPIZZADAY today. Also some interesting “Red Carpet” Q drops.

There are a few things that I would like to piece together that could create a very interesting day and night.

As @realDonaldTrump says “let’s see what happens.”
1) The Academy Awards were moved up from February 24th to February 9th in April. Why would they move these up? Comes right on the heals of POTUS being exonerated. #Oscars
2) @realDonaldTrump puts out an out of place tweet in @RepDebDingell and refers to “Red Carpet.” Q put out 2 posts April 2018 on a MOAB on “Red carpet rollout.” #Oscars
