I will have to say that her disinterest in The Queen disappoints me greatly. I, not being an Anglophile wasn't interested in The Queen but when the lights went down I became enthralled and entranced by Dame Helen Mirren (who joins other silver-haired beauties, Raquel Welch - I know she's not silver haired but you know what I mean - and Emmylou Harris, on my hottie list). Here performance was all encompassing, she is one of the few who truly and absolutely deserved her Oscar. The Departed, ok I can see not wanting to see it but it was an intense recreation of the Japanese cinema and how can you not love Jack. Babel, I hear you Marjorie but I think all of those issues are entwined and appropriate - although, I don't know about that racist thing, I didn't really see so much of that in Babel.
Volver, Letters from Iwo Jima & Happy Feet were the 3 best I saw this last year
As far as costumes Marjorie says Marie Antoinette, which I will see tonight, but I must say that Curse of the Golden Flower was stunning...the movie sucked but I couldn't get enough of the sets and costumes. Zhang Yimou's understanding of colors and textures is unparalleled.
Marjorie we will have to hook up for some filmfest stuff, hopefully I can afford a few. When is someone gonna drop a gold brick on my doorstep? Sheesh!
