Via the CEO Kristy Patterson;

Bryan Cranston from Wakefield's Q and A:

And Richard Gere from Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer Q and A:


Toni Erdmann...funny...ver funny and touching but a meandering second act and a third act that strains credulity.  That said, it's still very good.

Una...Rooney Mara is outstanding in this adaption of the Davod Harrower play Blackbird (which I saw in June with Michelle Williams and Jeff Daniels).  Ben Mendelsohn gets acted off the screen (imho).  Frankly I'd love to ahve seen a Daniels/Mara film version and something script-wise closer to the stage version.

Wakefield...I liked this quite a lot though the heavy use of voice over may challenge some viewers. Bryan Cranston carries the load with Jennifer Garner giving solid support.

Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer.  I liked it  quite a bit too.  Solid performances from richard Gere and company especially Lior Ashkenazi as the Prime Minister of Israel.

Oscar prospects from Sunday: Mara for Una, Erdmann for Best Foreign Language Film.

Time to start thinking about rating those films you've seen this weekend.  Send them in on a 1 to 5 scale with 1 being "putrid" ad 5 being"poifect".   The People's Telluride composite ratings will be posted here in a week to ten days.
