Escape at Dannemora

#EscapeAtDannemora


Fantastic! Key leading indicator of the promised blurring between film/TV. Kudos to all: Stiller, Arquette, Dano, Del Toro, Morse, HOF-worthy PD(!πŸ‘) & DP (Ep5 opening & closing shots!😲) & *esp* Lange. He breaks your heart, hopefully #Emmys won't break his!πŸ™Œ

Steelers Come Up Agonisingly Short in Playoff Push Thanks to More Boneheaded Browns' Decisions

Dear #GreggWilliams, TBH would like a word with you & #BakerMayfield...run the bl**dy ball! 


Gawd, those insufferable #Ravens🀯


With *all* the boldfaced talent the #Steelers had, is this the biggest underachievement in 30 years? #Tomlin & coaches need to be held accountable...



Steelers’ Playoff Hopes Rest on the Browns!!!

I can't believe I'm gonna say this: 


#HereWeGo...#BakerMayfield!!!!


😱😨😰😳🀭

Stop me if you've heard this before: #Salah (so selfessπŸ€™), #Mane...& #Firmino (hattrick!)... & ya, know, *all* the rest... but before you get too excited half the #EPL season's left, & there's a big #ManCity match coming up...

India-Australia Test Hangs in Balance / Trent Boult Amazing Performance

Oh man, I was about to write an ode to the great #Cheteshwar #Pujara... but then 54/5 happened! Yikes! Looks like #BoxingDay Test will go down to the wire...😰

RIP Sister Wendy Beckett

RIP #SisterWendyBeckett


Such a warm, avuncular presence, helped make art accessible to the rest of us philistines. I might still be way behind when it comes to art appreciation, but it was always so much fun to watch her on TV.



Tully (2002)

#Tully (2002)


An absolute gem! This *truly* independent slice of Americana was one of the best films I saw that year/decade/since. Beautiful, melancholic, meditative with a quietly devastating ending. Thx for introducing me to the great #JulianneNicholson & @ansonmount (h/t TBH)

What a win for #LeBron (er, I mean #Lakers)... actually, no this one time it was the other guys, kids really, who *hammered* #Warriors... on the road?!

Cold War (Zimna wojna)

#ColdWar


*Stunningly* photographed (DP Zal deserves an #Oscar for that Rock Around the Clock Sequence alone!😲), idiosyncratic romantic weepie that maybe leaves a little too much to the imagination? Speaking of #Oscars - Kulig's charismatic, burn-up-the-screen, starmaking perf!

Marwencol (2010)

#Marwencol (2010)


Wonderful documentary that still retains its impact. Kudos to director Malmberg for not being exploitative and instead letting Hogancamp tell his own story. Those miniature dioramas are extraordinary. A lovely paean to the healing power of art & local community

India Lose 2018 Aus v India Test 2

PS. Bad luck for #IND but looks like #TimPaine's antics woke #AUS's fast bowlers up... from 5-98 to 140 all out! Yikes! 😳#Virat may want to calm things down a bit...😬

RIP #PennyMarshall


So sad, one of my all-time favourite directors back from #JumpinJackFlash. Very few filmmakers had that kind of 1-2-3 punch with #Big, #Awakenings & #ALeagueOfTheirOwn. My goodness! PS. Wait, #LaverneAndShirley, she was a famous actress, too?! What a life!

ROMA (2/2)

#ROMA (2/2)


I keed because I *love* Cuaron! Technically *stunning* bigscreen filmmaking with a magnificent #Oscars-level perf by Aparicio. She haunts you from those framed-to-within-an-inch-of-its-life series of painstaking singletake tableaux & stays with you long after it ends



ROMA (1/2)

#ROMA (1/2)


There is a splendid 2.5hr period foreign B&W film about the travails of a young woman making her way in a third-world cosmopolitan city directed by a critically-beloved #Oscar-winning international auteur. The name of that movie is…#Mahanagar!

Gautam Gambhir Retires

You Know You're Too Old When: #GautamGambhir Retires. Superb, relentless, courageous cricketer unafraid to speak his mind. Will go down in #cricket history for propelling #IND to that famous #CWC win... and of course #KKR to their #IPL titles. Bengal will always be grateful! πŸπŸ‘




The Front Runner

#TheFrontRunner


Hugely entertaining/slightly depressing. With #Tully, this is a nice little 2018 two-fer from Reitman. Fantastic ensemble highlighted by Farmiga & a superb Jackman. PS. That insane Altman-esque single-take opening sequence...all that overlapping dialogue! 🎀πŸ’ͺ

India Completes Historic Test Win in Australia 2018 AUS v IND Test 1

Terrifying/breathtaking/nerve-racking cinematic experience! What sticks, however, is the human story. Honnold's endlessly fascinating but the cost to his loved ones...πŸ€” #Oscars to the DP & esp his camera operators! 1 of 2018's best!

One of the most troubl-ing/some films you'll *ever* see. I missed my documentary ethics class so I'll leave all of that alone. Kudos to director & esp DP for putting their lives in danger to get the story behind the headlines. War is absolute hell on the young!

RIP #PhilipBosco


One of those classic I-love-that-guy character actors I "discovered" first on #LawAndOrder. Fantastic in so many roles, perhaps none more so than his late-career valediction in #TheSavages. Watch him break your heart for yourself tomorrow at @SidGrauman. Sigh…

Tully (2018)

#Tully


(Second-πŸ˜‡) Greatest Tully Movie, Ever! Sweet/unnerving/thought-provoking thx to Reitman's sleight-of-hand/apparently-placable directing & Cody's sharp-tongued screenplay. Livingston, Davis & *esp* Theron (hello #Oscars): πŸ‘ PS. Editor deserves massive πŸ‘ - that montage!

Can You Ever Forgive Me?

One of the best, most criminally-under-seen, films of #Oscar season! Expertly crafted by kid Heller, superbly acted by Wells, the scene-stealing-machine REG (adding nuance and heartbreak), & esp McCarthy, who deserves *all* the awards she's going to get!



02 December 2018

One of the Worst Steelers’ Losses of All Time!

Yeesh, one of the greatest #Steelers losses ever: up by 16 pts at home?!😱, #Switzer & #Conner hurt😰, #PhilipRivers becomes even more insufferable, #Chargers fans bandwagoning... 

& the *awful* #Ravens are within striking distance 🀬

RIP Nicolas Roeg

RIP #NicolasRoeg


One of our most singular independent filmmakers, practically defined an era. His run of 1970s movies, my goodness, *very* few have ever come anywhere close to equaling it. Mesmerizing, off-kilter films that you can't shake once they dig their hooks into you.



27 November 2018

RIP Bernardo Bertolucci

RIP #BernardoBertolucci


One of *the* all-time greats. I remember being awed by the mere clips & stills of his films growing up. Epic filmmaker with lyrical visuals who never lost sight of the characters at the heart of it all. I'll let experts like Ty Burr handle Last Tango…
