Had a nice day yesterday as one of the friends of this blog and I made tentative plans to meet in Telluride during the festival this year. I also made my official application for press accreditation for 2012. I got it last year and am hoping that will be the case again this year. On to today's post!
NEW VIEWS: AMOUR
One of the two films I am personally most excited about that played Cannes last month and almost certainly will play Telluride is Michale Haneke's "Amour" (the other is "Rust and Bone"). Haneke's other Palme D'Or winner "The White Ribbon" may have been the best film of 2009. I have included the link to Rope of Silicon's post of two clips from the film here:
NEW VIEWS: BEYOND THE HILLS (PLUS)
The Playlist put up a massive post of pics and clips from over a dozen Cannes films. It's very impressive. Check it here:
NEW VIEWS: KNIGHT OF CUPS
There has been a good deal of buzz that Terrence Malick's "To the Wonder" ( used to be called "The Burial" and filmed, in part, here in Oklahoma) may actually make an appearance before the end of the year perhaps poking its head out during the fall festival season. Amazingly, the hyper-slow (or hyper-attention-to-detail...whichever you prefer) director is working on the next project entitled (for now) "Knight of Cups".
Christian Bale and Natalie Portman star and can be seen here in stills from The Playlist:
Is it possible that we might see "Wonder" in 2012 and "Knight" in 2013? That hardly seems likely given Malick's track record of years (sometimes decades) between projects but it's also hard to believe that we have photographic proof of work on both projects.
