Ugh, I'm already wasting my time befriending Cate Blanchett just so I can watch her copy of Soderbergh's stupid Australian film he doesn't want anyone to see, and now this.

I like Cate but I have to agree she's rarely in a decent film.

I don't think I've seen her in a great film, but certainly in some very good ones: Hannah, I'm Not There, and The Aviator. Button and Lord of the Rings are good, I guess. Life Aquatic I haven't seen. Indiana Jones sucked, but she was fun and campy in it.

Yeah, she finds herself in a number of really mixed bag films, sometimes the least films of great directors.

It is interesting that her roles are so often steeped in a mannerism, carrying or requiring a context if you will. Looking forward to the Malick just to see her stripped down again, honestly.

As stripped down as Malick makes his actors...which in the case of Ben Affleck was a hulking cipher (pointedly of course), but it's not like his people are exactly lucid, grounded!

Post Re: The Cannes Thread

The greatest problem with being a great actor is that your reputation drives you to be courted for large budget films with no room for extended bits of character-based interaction and improvisation.

Or, the other greatest problem with being a great actor is that you can choose to not do those films, in which case you can't help but do smaller films with great directors who tend to have defined visions and styles which leave no room for extended bits of character-based interaction and improvisation.

The truly talented actor's best choice is to find some concept which they can mold from the inside and force the editor to craft a coherent portrait of what comes out of the process.

This is all assuming that an actor can be great without being the best possible actor in every possible role at for every director alive and maybe, just maybe there has to be some allowance provided for actors to find their style within a role rather than cram every actor into a pre-defined role. Which is not true in the case of Sabine Timoteo, obviously.

I think Cate's best work is in Little Fish where she's also her most unCatelike

Post Re: The Cannes Thread

so many of the articles about this are really disgusting and awful

LOL Daily Mail:

"steamy three-hour lesbian movie"

quite randomly segues from a discussion about the Palme win to:

"The naked women writhed, licked and explored every intimate inch of each others bodies."

"During the gala the audience sat in silence and craned their necks as if to get a better view of the steamy scenes unfolding in plain sight on the huge screen.

It's the most sensational win at Cannes in years."

"It may face problems with British film censors because of its erotic nature and for a scene involving what has been described as ''erotic impressive scissoring' where the two women are lock their limbs in an intimate,and sensual, embrace."
