#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

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.

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/ 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

Esta ha sido la carrera hacia el #Oscars más limpia y sin polémicas extracinematográficas que recuerdo, quizá porque Weinstein está ardiendo en el infierno o porque el nivel de calidad es muy alto.

Pero eso no quiere decir que no haya habido mierda por un tubo. ABRO HILO.
Buscar los trapos sucios es muy de 2005. Ahora lo que se lleva son los artículos absolutamente demenciales buscando polémica y maldad donde no la hay. Los llamados 'bad takes' o 'hot takes'. Como las opiniones de los votantes anónimos, vaya. Y TODAS las nominadas han tenido.
A continuación, una selección de lo peor, lo más ridículo, lo más sin sentido que se ha escrito en torno a cada una de las nominadas a mejor película.

seguinte, domingo tem #Oscars e eu resolvi fazer a minha lista dos melhores filme pq sim

ent lah vai

começando c uma MENÇÃO HONROSA a “Vingadores: Ultimato” pq oq a Marvel desenvolveu ao longo desses dez anos, q culminou nesse filme, é totalmente novo dentro do cinema. esse filme é o desfecho de uma saga de vinte filmes conectados entre si e é simplesmente insano.
agr valendo, os 30 melhores:

30. As Golpistas (Lorene Scafaria)
29. Harriet (Kasi Lemmons)

esses dois são bem fraquinhos

28. Judy (Rupert Goold)
27. Rocketman (Dexter Fletcher)

duas biopics bem mais do mesmo, mas c boas atuações principais

Now, some of you may be thinking, one Chart Thread™️ seems a reasonable output for one day.


We also took a deep-dive into Hollywood’s diversity problem:…

1) It’s not just the #Oscars; minorities are under-represented throughout the film industry Image
2) One accusation made of the Oscars (and BAFTA) is that their members, who vote for nominees & winners, are too male, pale and stale.

The Academy is trying to fix this by inviting a more diverse field of members every year, but huge membership + low churn = slow progress Image
3) The good news is: both the acting profession and its award-winners are growing steadily more diverse.

But both still fall short of representing the diversity of the full US population. Image

At Heathrow for our flight to the #Oscars. Jonson studiously ignoring the clucking noises coming from his luggage.
A flight from Heathrow to LAX is like Scorsese’s Irishman: less than four hours by the clock, but feeling infinitely longer.

Every flight attendant on this plane hath fallen in love with Donne on a previous #Oscars flight.

We may have a problem.

Mi propósito para 2020 será el mismo que tuve en 2019 (ver una película al dia) peeeeero para subir la apuesta añadiré ver también toooodos los extras de las pelis que tengo en formato físico. Sí, eso incluye todas las pistas de audiocomentarios.
Tengo más de 180 largometrajes
Empiezo con #SilencioDesdeElMal y resulta que no tiene extras. Not bad, así compenso cuando me toque ver las docenas de horas de extras de la trilogia de El señor de los anillos. La revisión me da que pensar lo que le gusta a James Wan las viejas chungas y moñecos creepys
Contiene cortos animados con anécdotas de los creadores, un video de Buzz en la @NASA_es y el globo de Buzz en el desfile de acción de gracias de New York. Bravo por la originalidad de contenidos. Revisionar #ToyStory por enésima vez es gloria

Como todo ano, eu vou tentar ver todos os filmes do oscar. Normalmente eu acabo vendo boa parte dos indicados às categorias principais mas nunca consegui ver todos, todos.
Vou tentar manter uma thread pra comentar o que rolar nessa temporada de premiações e falar sobre os filmes.
(1) Primeiro, sobre as pré-indicações do Oscar:…
Melhor Doc: fiquei muito surpreso e feliz em saber que "Democracia em Vertigem" está nessa lista. Brasil bem representado.

Melhor filme estrangeiro: "Vida Invisível" e "Portrait of a Lady on Fire" não foram indicados. O primeiro é previsível até (infelizmente), mas o (...)

“What happened is that we don’t vote by gender. We vote by film and accomplishment.” - President, HFPA

This statement today by the head of the HFPA on the #GoldenGlobes and the lack of female nominees in the Best Director category makes me want to scream. Out loud.
This statement is the epitome of the biggest myth and misconception around diversity and inclusion: that diversity and inclusion is at the expense of merit and excellence.

Let me be clear: it is not.

Once more with feeling: It is not. #GoldenGlobes
Calling attention to the marginalization & exclusion of women in the #GoldenGIobes directing category (or racialized artists in acting categories at the #Oscars through @ReignOfApril’s #OscarsSoWhite campaign) is not asking for awards bodies to nominate unqualified candidates.
