Today's post is up a little later than usual due to weather issues here in the Great Plains. Bouncing back today, though.
A LOOK AT MR. HOLMES
After its premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival, the producers/distribs for Bill Condon's "Mr. Holmes" have set a June 19th date to open the film in the U.K. but no U.S. date is set as yet. I still am hoping/campaigning for it to be a Telluride choice.
At any rate, a teaser/trailer has appeared. It looks cool.
Here are links to some posts that include the trailer and have additional information:
A LOOK AT LUBEZKI
The last two Best Cinematography Oscars have gone to Emmanuel Lubezki and both for Telluride films: "Gravity" and "Birdman".
The Playlist, among others, has linked to a Vimeo supercut of the masters work. It's also cool. Look here:
