Depp looking like Elon Musk there.
That little image from Asteroid City makes me irrationally angry. He really is a parody of himself at this point.

Can’t wait for Todd Haynes’s Mary Kay LeTourneau-inspired flick with Julianne Moore.
Wim Wenders is still alive?

R2 Wes Anderson or Steve Carell?
In spite of the glorious reviews, I loathed The French Dispatch and liked Grand Budapest Hotel in theory more than in practise. I have read all of Stefan Zweig’s fiction Anderson doesn’t have the despondent of tragedy.

Doesn't seem like there would be many raunchy, seedy movies this year, though.

I am quietly dreading the Moretti, Anderson and Kore-eda.
On the other hand, I’m curious about the Ceylan, Loach, Glazer, Breillat and Kaurismäki.
I disliked Carol, so I hope this is a return to form for Todd Haynes.
If Scorsese’s film were any good, it would have been invited to be in competition.

La Passion De Dodin Bouffant Tran Anh Hung aka The Pot Au Feu a period romance starring Juliette Binoche and Benoit Magimel .
is set in the world of French gastronomy in 1885 and charts the relationship between Eugenie, an esteemed cook, and Dodin, the gourmet she has been working for over the last 20 years. Growing fonder of one another, their bond turns into a romance and gives rise to delicious dishes that impress even the world’s most illustrious chefs. When Dodin is faced with Eugenie’s reluctance to commit to him, he decides to start cooking for her.
he story is inspired by the famous French gastronome Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin.

Cate Blanchett is donning a habit in her next role post-“TÁR.”
The Academy Award-winning actress leads Warwick Thornton’s latest film “The New Boy,” which is set to debut at 2023 Cannes in the Un Certain Regard section.
Per the official synopsis, set in 1940s Australia, “The New Boy” is the story of a nine-year-old Aboriginal orphan boy (Aswan Reid) who arrives in the dead of night at a remote monastery, run by a renegade nun (Blanchett), where his presence disturbs the delicately balanced world in this story of spiritual struggle and the cost of survival.

I like Warrick Thornton better as a director than a presenter in his documentaries so I await The New Boy with interest.

R2 Johnny Depp doesn't appear in Asteroid City. Unless you think Steve Carell looks like a parody of himself. Which I don't get.

Hopefully Wim Wenders movie will be a good one. He made a lot of crap since the 90s

r18 I was offering two separate thoughts, hence the new paragraph.

And the "parody of himself" was obviously referring to Wes Anderson. Try looking at OP's thumbnail image next time, it helps a tonne.
|by Anonymous||reply 21||May 14, 2023 5:44 PM
R20 You were talking about Johnny Depp and then just said he in your next paragraph, without mentioning a name. Why do you think Steve Carell looks like a parody of himself? He looks just like himself in that image, to me.

R21 Try to include names next time, so we know who the fuck you are talking about. It helps a ton.

r22 Dear lord, I was clearly commenting on OP's thumbnail image. The first paragraph comments on Depp's looks. The second paragraph comments on another part of the thumbnail image -- the aesthetics of Anderson's new movie.
That's okay, dear, we all slow down as we age.

I don’t much like Carrell. His best work in a while was as the skeevy Tv host opposite Jennifer Aniston.

Wenders started young and is only 77. Bellocchio is 83 and made his first feature in 1965. Loach is 86 and made his first feature in 1967.
These long careers, even with all their ups and downs, are extraordinary.

I didn't know they did another LeTourneau-based movie.
I was recently watching the 2000 TV movie starring Penelope Ann Miller and thinking they should really do a big screen adaptation. There are so many facets to that story.
I hope it's as good as NOTES ON A SCANDAL, also inspired by that case.

R21, The thumbnail image shows Steve Carrell. The sentence referring to the image says "He."
In addition, R2's first sentence REFERS TO DEPP, not the director.
THEREFORE, considering r2's first sentence's referring to the actor shown and then the second sentence's having poor pronoun usage (no proper antecedent), it is not merely logical to read the "He" as "Steve Carrell;" it is practically obligatory.
