nostormo, Monday, 21 January 2019 20:26 (one month ago) Permalink

I'd vote 2012 or 2013.

2018 benefited from 2017 films finally getting broader releases (eg, Zama, First Reformed, Death of Stalin, Paddington 2, (in the US) Phantom Thread (in the UK)). Despite the far lower costs of theatrical releases (A DCP is far cheaper to send on a drive or download to theaters than a celluloid print), the promotional schedule has gotten more rugged, a year of festival showings and pre-release mass-market promotion before release.

It was a good year, and way better than 2010 or 2011.

2016 was pretty strong: Certain Women, Personal Shopper, Silence, Julieta, The Witch, Deadpool, The Light Between Oceans, Moonlight, La La Land (just that ending sequence), Nocturnal Animals, Rules Don't Apply (seriously slept on), Elle, Toni Erdmann, many I'm forgetting...

2017 films finally getting broader releases (eg, Zama, First Reformed, Death of Stalin, Paddington 2, (in the US) Phantom Thread (in the UK)).

Phantom Thread only screened in two US cities in 2017! (and First Reformed played maybe one festival?)

sans lep (sic), Tuesday, 22 January 2019 01:36 (one month ago) Permalink

The dating used by the major film information sites (like imdb and letterboxd) usually follows copyright/festival releases, whereas the EOY ephemera runs on press screenings/wider release. From reliance on imdb et al, we'll probably all get a somewhat distorted idea of what came out any given year. For future retrospectives, a given year stamp means it came out that year, or likely in the next two year.

There's much confusion in my letterboxd wishlist, as there are still '2017' releases I'm looking forward to for 2019 release (Dau and Tigers are Not Afraid), and numerous festival reviews for '2018' releases that if I'm lucky might show up locally (Climax, Transit, In Fabric, Diamantino and Aniara).

dancing the Radioactive Flesh (Sanpaku), Tuesday, 22 January 2019 03:40 (one month ago) Permalink

First Reformed is a 2018 movie

flappy bird, Tuesday, 22 January 2019 05:08 (one month ago) Permalink

2017 festivals, 2018 release. Most of the audience doesn't go to festivals. This isn't hard to understand (unless you're Danish).

a Mets fan who gave up on everything in the mid '80s (Dr Morbius), Tuesday, 22 January 2019 11:49 (one month ago) Permalink

however, Phantom Thread had gotten its wider release in the first two months of 2018, which is why people in Green Acres should hold their best-of lists til the leaves bloom.

Most films don't get a Danish release, which does make it a bit harder to understand. But that part is surprisingly hard to understand for New Yorkers, apparently.

First Reformed is a 2019 limited release here. It did play a festival in 2018. Saw it, but it just felt so 2017 to me.

Think we need to rewind, you watched that film some time, probably more than three times, Ethan Hawke's a two-time-nom, two-time-nom.

some good observations in there but good lord that needs a vicious editing-pass. just read this nightmare of a sentence aloud:

"It’s still smart enough to err just on the correct side of out-and-out racism, as most any multiplex movie must—so we get a smattering of good Latinos to deflect accusations of out-and-out racism, just as Joel Schumacher’s Falling Down(1993), in which Michael Douglas cleans the Augean stables of Los Angeles’s mean streets, includes a neo-Nazi among its list of villains by way of proving to the squeamish that his judge, jury, and executioner justice was at least colorblind."

I'm a fan of Nick's overall critical posture, but he gives off the impression of someone who grinds editors' resistance down right off the bat.

Can You Ever Forgive Me? was a real treat - sharp, funny and desperately sad, in the end. McCarthy is amazing in it. Has it been discussed on here?

I found it. I agree that the film unfolds almost exactly how you'd imagine it would but I still found it exciting and found the ending moving in a way that I didn't anticipate. Or rather, that I did anticipate but it still got me, in spite of its obvious movement.

I liked it a lot, agree with pretty much everything above. MM and REG are great, its melancholy is moving, and it is surprisingly understated in parts (particularly the date MM goes on). Rare to find an awards season movie starring two gay characters, addiction, unrequited love, and AIDS that isn't cloying or totally nauseating. Wonderful color palette, too - its light as if through whiskey.

flappy bird, Tuesday, 12 February 2019 03:16 (one week ago) Permalink

yeah i've been trying to carefully talk that movie up, it really moved me but a lot of what's great is its smallness and subtlety and i don't want to pump it up too much.

It's also not cloddish about writing. It realizes an essential truth: to be a writer is to engage in a beautiful fraud.
