Cloned From: 

I highly support (and enjoy!) the addition of ratings on this page. Now, I only have to bug you when I desire more explicit reviews!

I'm glad you saw and liked Capote. Think Hoffman has the Oscar in the bag?

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I thought you'd appreciate the ratings bit. New year. Time for new things.

I hope you will continue to bug me if you need opinionation. It's great ego-juice.

I regret that I haven't seen all the other performances in the best actor category, so it's hard to say. I love Joaquin Phoenix's performance in Walk the Line. It would have been my pick before I saw Capote. Now I'm torn.

Essay question: Three of the frontrunners are favored for playing roles based on real-life famous people, and two not-so-famous. Is that acting or mimicry? Should mimicry get the same respect as inventing a character from scratch?

I think playing the mimic is something like playing, say, Danny's character in My Left Foot. You first conquer the physical challenges (voice inflections, mannerisms, etc.), and then you actually have to act on top of that.

If you can only pull off the first one, you might as well tour with Rich Little. If you can do both, you bonzo, baby.

Of course, you can do a good job doing the second without the first, but audiences usally won't cotton (sorry) to it, especially if they are fairly contemporary to the person imitated. Ask Hopkins after his Nixon (which I actually never saw, so I should certainly shut up now...).

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Good answer!

It looks alot more like acting if I can't remember what the original person was like, or if the performance makes me forget the actor, like with Jamie Foxx's Ray.

I agree. For me, Hoffman definitely pulled off that trick with Capote; he resembled the real man, and yet he also acted well enough to tackle his seemingly complex, ultimately sadly simple character.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I'm newly fascinated with Truman Capote. I want to read more of his stuff, especially his autobiography. However, I do not recall ever seeing the man moving and speaking, so I can't tell if Hoffman portrays him accurately.

Depends on what you mean by "accurately." By one measuring stick the answer is: absolutely not. Truman Capote: 5'3". Philip Seymour Hoffman: 5'10".

I'm still pondering the value of mimicry and/or acting....

Yes, and Hoffman is much better-looking, IMHO.

I was hoping you'd take the bait :).

In the upcoming movie by Lasse Hallström (The Hoax), Capote is portrayed by Michael J. Burg. Just have a look at this chap's height (if the imdb-information is accurate).

He'll have to slouch.

He resembles Capote in the face, and I bet he does the accent well, being from Kansas.

Or he'll have to walk on his knees. :)

For the accent, I really have no idea. As English is not my native language, I'm unable to tell the difference between accents (says me who sounds like Roberto Benigni in Down by Law).

BTW, what have you read by Truman Capote to date? I own the Capote Reader, but I cannot convince myself to read it, as the only story I have read by him was IMO awfully boring (Breakfast at Tiffany's).

The first thing of Capote's I've read is Music for Chameleons, and that was only this year. It's an anthology of basically anecdotal stuff. Some of it is fascinating.

I really sympathize with you regarding accents. I cannot imagine how a non-native can understand certain American accents, like New York, Boston, or Deep South. I use subtitles when I watch some movies made in New York.

Americans have difficulty with non-American English accents. I still prefer to use subtitles/captions when I watch films from New Zealand, Newcastle, Manchester, Scotland, or Ireland, but I can watch Eastenders without captions, and that's Cockney!

I'm convinced that the Monty Python acting in a trench sketch was based on the competing witing teams of Chapman & Cleese (6'2" & 6'4") and Jones & Palin (5'8" & 5'9").

I'm looking forward to seeing James Cromwell play the lead in The Michael J. Fox Story.

Cromwell as Michael J. Fox? I'd like to see that too.
But I can imagine that it must be difficult for tall actors like him to get jobs (I mean the really interesting ones) in Hollywood. The smaller actors sharing the screen with him must have an inferiority complex then. Just think of him and Al Pacino (who is hardly the 5'6" he is often said to be) in Angels in America.
Ditto for Cleese. And Christopher Lee, of course. And Tim Robbins.

Exactly! Pity the poor actress who is tall. Geena Davis has to be matched up against two actors of equal stature... Donald Sutherland is 6'4" while Kyle Secor is 6'5". Which means that when we're choosing up sides for Network Basketball I'll be picking "Commander in Chief" over whatever that new show is with Seth Green. No matter how cute, smart and funny he is.

Tim Robbins definitely deserved the Best Sloucher Academy Award for Mystic River. I can't believe that he has eight inches on Sean Penn and I can't believe how dirty that sounds. And pity the poor Stallone who had to haul around a bar stool just to look Dolph Lundgren in the neck.

Sutherland, of course. But for Lundgren, I agree that at 6'6" he is pretty tall, but the word "actor" doesn't fit too well.

Other tall actors would be Jeff Goldblum (Geena Davis' ex-husband) and the great Liam Neeson. And Woody Allen... :-)

Other (too?) tall actresses would be Sigourney Weaver and Kathleen Turner.

...and Uma Thurman who is better than most people think and taller than she oughta be for what the Tarantino asks of her. Then again, perhaps a shorter Uma wouldn't be the Tarantino's muse.

Allow me to point out that I didn't use the words "Dolph Lundgren" and "actor" in the same paragraph let alone sentence. Until now... and in the very same paragraph as "Brigitte Nielsen." oof!

I would love to meet Al Pacino in person, if only for the surreal experience of being able to see him eye-to-eye.

Eye-to-eye-contact with Al Pacino would rather freeze me. :)

Yes, me too.

At least, Hoffman has got some real chances for an Academy Award this year. But I think it will be closer than last year, where Jamie Foxx got everything, and poor Paul Giamatti was robbed! David Strathairn and especially Heath Ledger are some hot candidates too.

I love this list! I have been sick, so I have not been online too much, but I have certainly kept up with this.

I am very happy you liked The Garden of the Finzi Continis and The Producers, two of my favorite films. Naturally, I will lap up any comments you care to cast our way...

I am curious about your rating for Brokeback Mountain; were the elements that did not work for you moral or aesthetic? As always, you can tell me it is none of my business if you do not care to share... :)

I trust all is well.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I love how the The Garden of the Finzi Continis shows a different side of the whole holocaust thing. I kept thinking how easy it would be to live in denial and accomodation until it's too late, and would I be like that if the same thing were happening today in America? Is the same thing happening today? I love movies that help me to think and learn.

I think The Producers is delightfully ironic and cynical.

My problems with Brokeback Mountain are both moral and aesthetic. I dislike Doctor Zhivago for similar reasons. I believe true love does what is best for the beloved, therefore, I do not believe it should result in broken families. Other than that, I saw nothing but a conventional love story, with the gimmick of homosexuality.

Thank you! As always, I enjoy reading your thoughts.

I love Garden, both for the reasons you cite and for the fact the film seems to really bring its characters to life, thus highlighting the human face before the approaching tragedy better than stacks of bodies tend to do. The film broke my heart.

I also am not a huge fan of Zhivago, but I I really liked Brokeback Mountain.

(which does not mean I really like adultery...)

I don't think any film in history ever makes me laugh as much as The Producers; that still does not quite make it my favorite comedy (that's Bringing Up Baby, since it handles a romance I love as well as makes me laugh), but it does put it very close and my choice for funniest comedy. In fact, I find it more hilarious every time I watch it.

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Why is it that filmmaker's think in order to "break new ground" you have to break old laws?

According to your rating scale, Playtime would be "worth a look". So, this makes me want to know what you think about Tati's other films (especially My Uncle and M. Hulot's Holiday).

The others were even better. I think Playtime is too busy; it's full of sight gags. I couldn't take it all in. I actually prefer the others because they are sweeter, quieter, and more charming.

My, I'm so thrilled you watched 2046 and Harold and Maude, I won't even needle you too much about the too-low ratings.

Your thoughts?

(And don't pretend like you didn't know I was goin' be a-askin'!)

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

I tried to watch H & M a few years ago, and didn't get it, so I figured it deserved another chance, now that I'm so sophisticated and jaded, etc. I still don't appreciate the black humor about suicide, because I know suicide is real and horrible when it happens in "real life." But I like the taboo-breaking relationship between H & M, and I like Harold's choice to go on with his life at the end. I don't get how someone as fresh as Maude could have a self-imposed expiration date.

As for 2046, I found it intensely romantic, moody, atmospheric, beautifully filmed, but empty. It's hard for me to sympathize with a guy who can't tell the difference between lust and love.

If, at the end of the year, none of the movies I've seen deserved a five, I'll have to consider grading on a curve and bumping all my fours up to fives, and threes up to fours, etc, because maybe I'm too harsh.

Thanks!

I confess that life has left me with a love of gallows humor, and I thought the, er, set pieces in Harold and Maude also served as symbols for the boy himself, or at least his perverted obsessions, so I loved it. I don't think black humor always belittles the subject, but I do think it often lifts us up to a place where we can deal with the grim a little better.

As for 2046, I'm not sure how sympathetic I find the main character. I'll have to think about it. As for empty, I obviously disagree, but I can see how you might have reached that conclusion.

Don't lower your standards, please! Demand greatness! Besides, I enjoy tough critics much more than I do the average reviewer nowadays...

Again, thanks!

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

As for gallows humor, I laughed when he chopped off his hand in front of the blind date, and when he burst into flames, but I think his mother's reactions are hard to understand. She is unbelievable, except as a caricature. She must have a sense of humor because she never calls 911, but she's incredibly insensitive if she doesn't seek to know her son any better or see his hobby as a red flag, yet she sends him to a shrink, but the shrink is worthless. Harold is obviously an intelligent boy, yet he's so inarticulate and repressed, that I don't understand why he can't escape his mother's domination, yet he can spend the night with a 79-year-old woman with no repercussions. Why doesn't he find other ways to rebel?

The only way I can appreciate it is as a deconstruction of the Sixties, kind of a satire of the hippie subculture.

Now for 2046, I don't have to sympathize with the protagonist, but it helps me to have an emotional anchor in the film, and none of the men or women were that for me.

Like Clockwork Orange has an unsympathetic lead, but I can relate to his feelings of boredom and rebellion.

Any reason for recently watching so many films from the early 70s?

Yes, I'm glad you asked. I'm working my way through the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die, in chronological order.

Wow, impressive! Good luck for your ambition, I'm sure you'll get to 1001 and be the first person I know to complete it.

I'm afraid completing the list will be impossible. There are about 75 titles still not available on home video. Of those, some have never been released to theatres at all.

It will be quite a challenge. If I can beat Roger Ebert's number, I'll be impressed. He has seen 943 of the 1001.

I second your high rating for Crash!

I hope it wins the Best Picture Academy Award.

I wanna see a review! I'm always hoping hearing somebody's opinions might help me see something I missed in a film I don't dig!

Shalom, y'all!

It has tremendous insight into human relationships. It makes me angry. It makes me cry. It makes me laugh out loud.

I love how the story loops around full circle, so that everyone's story ties together.

I love the mystical-fable aspect of it, in that everyone's actions and attitudes affect everyone else. It's a perfect fantasy of redemption and karmic retribution.

It's real, but not cynical, because it allows folks to redeem themselves. It shows there's hope for change. People can grow.

I love how everything that happens, every word that comes out of each character's mouth, has significance to the plot. There's not a wasted line or character or scene in the whole film.

Thanks, Rosie!

I greatly enjoyed reading your reactions while still confessing mine were quite different, which, of course, is part of this site's delights.

Shalom, y'all!

Yes, it's funny how people can have such different reactions to the same film. I recently rewatched it with a friend who had never seen it. It had her jumping out of her chair with tension and anger, shouting at the screen, while I calmly, silently watched from the other side of the room. She immediately went out and bought the DVD.

:)

We sit around and speak of the strengths and flaws of films, but in the end, we are simply moved, carried, and convinced by the film, or we are not. It is one of the reasons I shy away from establishing an objective criteria for evaluating films. If a film is well-made but leaves me utterly unaffected, not sparking me like other movies do, intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, or even, in a rare instance, physically, what does it profit me?

And, despite any admirable feats, is it really a good film as a whole if it does not?

Least that's how I see it...

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Yes. One man's trash is another man's treasure.

I've often wondered why I am so credulous toward some films' manipulations, and resentful of others'.

Ah, if we could crack that tough nut, we probably could come up with thoroughly objective criteria, eh? :)

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

So do I. And the closer the ceremony comes, the more I begin to doubt about Brokeback Mountain's top position. Maybe they'll eventually choose Crash.

Oh, and they did. Wow.

Uff, it's 5:42 AM here, and I haven't slept the whole night. :)

Wow! Was it worth it?

Well, he got to see Crash win!

;)

Yes, and I'm glad I can help him celebrate, since the haters outnumber the lovers around here.

No, I think they're just more vocal, since they have something to be angry about. It's called an availability heuristic.

Cool. Thanks.

Add me to the lovers. The "Crash" haters are really coming out of the woodwork right now.

Cheers!

Pink Flamingos?

Not really by choice. It's on the list of "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die."

I wish I could extract it from my brain. I am genuinely scarred for life.

It's certainly not for the faint of heart. But it is the perfect way to discover if you can handle John Waters or not.

I still don't know if I can handle John Waters. Part of me is consumed with curiosity as to what he does in his other films, and the other part of me is trying to forget he exists.

I think that's the most common reaction to John Waters. I've never really appreciated his films either though there is that train wreck, shock value factor that keeps you coming back. I will say if you didn't like "Pink Flamingos" you probably won't like anything else either.

Which of his movies have you seen?

Hairspray (which I didn't find shocking so much as annoying), Cry-Baby (which I don't remember but didn't like), and pieces of Polyester and Serial Mom.

Pecker is supposed to be his masterwork, but I'm so scared of the Waters experience that I've totally avoided it.

You have absolutely nothing to fear from Pecker. There's nothing shocking about it. In fact, Comedy Central plays it from time to time, minus what little nudity it has. His most recent film, A Dirty Shame, despite its NC-17 rating, is also extremely tame.

Out of what I've seen (A Dirty Shame, Pecker, Desperate Living, and Female Trouble), Desperate Living is easily his best work, which isn't really saying much. Once you've seen one, you've seen them all. It's always about conflict between the uptight, "sophisticated" people and the trashy hedonists (or simply a celebration of hedonism).

I'm actually missing "Polyester" right now on IFC. But I swear next time it's on, I'll watch it. :)

I think Hinterland sums it up nicely. It's good to know they're pretty much all alike, since that helps assuage my curiosity.

I have been in that same position before, but I did not have a friend to tell me to stop wasting my time watching more Waters' films, and that was a waste and a shame.

Stop wasting your time watching more Waters' films.

:)

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Thank you, but telling me not to watch something is like saying "sic-em" to a dog. It's very hard for me to resist disobeying! However, I will do my best in this case :).

Well, of course! That's the Listology way!

I wouldn't dream of trying to tell you not to watch a film, only of issuing a friendly warning. I've heard Hairspray is pretty good for a taste of John trying to entertain with cheese rather than shock with it, but...

You really should not watch Amateur. Oh, no. Stay clear. :)

By the way, why in the world would a dog pop into your mind?

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Uh-oh. Are you trying reverse psychology on me?

My psychology is much like the original Vauxhall. It is not fancy enough to have a reverse gear. ;)

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

LOL :)

I haven't seen it, but heard a lot about it. I once saw once scene in a documentary. I only say "dog shit".

The one Waters-film I have seen is Serial Mom.

Well, Waters sure is good for stirring up controversy and discussion. Yes, the famous scene in which drag-queen Divine eats fresh, warm dog poop, is kind of an epilogue to the film, so you can skip it if you know what's coming. It obviously made her gag to do it, and it almost made me gag to watch it. It's merely antiestablishment nonsense which achieves absolutely nothing.

Ah, I am thrilled to see we are not doomed to disagree on films forever. Yay for Pride and Prejudice and Chinatown.

Between feel-good and feel-rotten, did they average out? :)

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Chinatown did not make me feel as bad as all that :).

I'm sorry to say that I have never seen another version of P & P before this. I thought I had already seen it, but I've since discovered my mistake. It arose, I think, out of my perception that all Jane Austen movies sound alike :(. Still, I enjoyed it.

You must get me a copy of Wavelength. Please, I'll do anything you ask of me.

Hmmmm. tempting. Email me.

Do you have daily movie-marathons? That's a huge lot of films!

What's your home cinema setup like?

I watch an average of 1.5 films per day, on a 30-inch 16:9 HDTV with Dolby 5.1.

Maybe soon HD videos will be available for rent or purchase.

They are, from Netflix.

I also see that Best Buy is selling the new Toshiba HD-A1 HD DVD Player.

What say you about Report? I can't stop watching the damn thing...

Fascinating. It makes me feel like I was there.
