The Past/The Future


A few notes about films that appeared last weekend at the 38th Telluride Film Festival:

"Shame" has a distributor and it is Fox Searchlight.  FS, you may remember, picked up "Tree of Life" after last year's SHOW.  Take a look at the details from The Huffington Post:

Shame's IMDb page:

Pina, the Wim Wenders 3D dance film homage to Pina Bausch is Germany's Foreign Language Oscar entrant.  That according to this story from The Hollywood Reporter:

Pina's IMDb page:

Hungary has selected "The Turin Horse" as its horse to back for Oscar.  That story is here from The Playlist (indieWire):

Turin Horse's IMDb page:

Samuel Goldwyn has nabbed the distribution rights to the Diana Vreeland documentary "Diana Vreeland:The Eye Has to Travel."  Check the info at The Hollywood Reporter here:


I always have hopes that The Coen Brothers will be at the next Telluride Film Festival.  The next project that they're putting together will, again, be on MTFB's watch list.  There has been a good deal of movement about the film which I talked a good deal about at the beginning of the summer but put on the back burner as the SHOW got closer and closer.  Now back to that obsession, at least for this post.

The film's title: "Inside Llewyn Davis."  Variety reports that Studio Canal is involved:|News|LatestNews&utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

The Playlist has further details here: also has some info on the story:

IMDb does has an "Inside Llewyn Davis" page started but it has virtually no info except the anticipated 2013 release date.  Look here:
