In Depth for Three TFF #42 FIlms: "Steve Jobs", "Beasts of No Nation" and "Carol" / Hail Coens!

Good Monday to All...


The P.R. machine for a number of Oscar-y films has warmed up considerably in the last six weeks and that certainly includes a number of films that played at Telluride last month.  I have in three films from TFF #42 that are getting a lot of attention:


Looks at the film from The Hollywood Reporter which has a big overview of the film and The Playlist which reports on some changes that have been made in the film since we saw it screen in T-ride:


Anne Thompson of Thompson on Hollywood reports on Idris Elba's transformation into his character for Cary Fukunaga's "Beasts of No Nation":


Finally, The New York Times' Mekado Murphy asks "Carol" director Todd Haynes five questions about the film :


One of the best things about my weekend was the release Friday of a trailer for the new Coen Brothers film "Hail, Caesar" which stars everyone in Hollywood plus a couple of other people.

Of course, the film has no Telluride connection (save for the Coens tribute in 2013) but I'm a Coens fan so...

Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Scarlett Johannson, Jonah Hill, Frances McDormand and more star and show up in the trailer.

It looks silly and entertaining.  The film is currently set to open in early February 2016.  Here it is via YouTube:

That'll do it for Monday.  Check back Thursday for more...
