The Lost City of Z (2017) - 4/10. It's Aguirre The Wrath of God done as an afterschool TV special, with English-speakers in for the krauts. You will believe that Sienna Miller can do an Emma Thompson impression. The film indulges bad faith from start to finish. The downer ending even gets sold as a moment of uplift. National Geographic porn!

The review for this film are all over the place: it goes from film of the year to total turd. I was quite upset I couldn't catch it in theater but I feel like I'm gonna be bored. James Gray isn't the kind of guy I would hire to make an adventure movie, but the idea is still intriguing to me. Even though he has made only one good film yet, I like the guy.

7 psychopaths (Martin McDonagh, 2012) - 6.5/10
Second watch. Still very flawed and please stop thinking Colin Farrell can play comedy, but the film has many great qualities.

Loulou (Maurice Pialat, 1980) - 6/10
Pretty boring after a while, but still too fascinating (mainly due to the actors) to stop.

Reservoir Dogs (Quentin Tarantino, 1992) - 9/10
I'm still in love.

The Handmaid Tale (season 1, 2017) - 6.5/10
Interesting, especially in the flashback sequences. Some incredibly powerful scenes (most notably an execution), mostly very good acting although the main actress bothers me (I get it, I get it, they took a good actress instead of a beauty in order to make a feminist statment, which is cool, but then you have to stop treating her like a beauty in the script). The color grade almost made me stop watching it several times.

Astoria Park and Hell Gate is pretty cool. Long Island City with The Queensboro Bridge, Museum of the Moving Image

Hell Gate looks very cool, as well as the view of Manhattan from there. The Long Island big sign looks nice too, I cannot believe I cannot picture a single movie it was used in. Can you?

It's called DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass).

It sounded like you were making fun of me so I had to double check that, but yeah, DUMBO is the real name (at least if you didn't create the Wikipedia page in multiple langages just to mess with me).

need any help with the short? got a team of DPs, editors, gfx artists...just a few hours away in RI. if schedules are open im sure me and others would love to be involved.

We will sure take all the help we can use from a serious shooting crew (and gear, like the tripod I won't be able to bring with me). I'm only starting to work on the screenplay so I cannot be very specific right now, but I really appreciate the offer. That's be great!

I'm sure I'll film something where Dominic slipped. I remember there are some cool art galleries in this part of Brooklyn.

Hey guys,
So I'm going to New York in march. Here is my schedule:

10th-15th : filming a short movie with a friend of mine you don't know and a former board member (Lewis Hawk)
16th-17th : writing alone or with former board member Lewis Hawk in the city
18th-24th : sightseeing with the girlfriend

I'd be glad to meet up with some of you.

Also, we're looking for interesting looking parts of the city that we don't see that often in films and commercials. Any idea?

McDonagh is of course a playwright as well as a film guy. He's got something on Broadway even now. I'd expect him to be able to pump out good film scripts from time to time. Check out some of his plays.

I didn't know that! I'll check them out, thanks.

3 Billboards 8.5/10
Awesome!!! McDonagh really is the most exciting screenwriter working these days. He's now becoming a very good director too, although he clearly doesn't master the craft the way he masters screenwriting. The acting is perfect (best overall performance of the year). I don't know what happened to Woody Harrelson when he worked with the Coen on No Country, but he's been getting better and better with each project ever since. A couple of small regrets here and there, but I sure hope this is getting every single Oscar it can.

Too much orange and teal.

Did you do all the post-production compositing? Well, not bad.

I did some of it, my brother did the huge chunck.

Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007) - 8/10. I remember when Albert Finney could act. Here he tries to get a performance out of running through scenes with his mouth open. Also, the Carter Burwell score really creeps me out, but I guess that's a good thing.


Everytime I watch this movie I have trouble breathing for a few hours afterwards just thinking about this open mouth.

Here are my 2 first videos of the year:



The official film of the year for the city of Marseille. One of my best on set experiences, with a great (and big) crew. Most of what we shot didn't end up in the movie because of the need to include many "postcard" stockshots, but I'm still quite happy with the result:

Official upload and its 166K view:
Much better quality upload on Vimeo:



The official music video of Romane Serda's new single, shot with a VERY minimal crew (we were 2).

I love this film: it only gets better with repeated viewings. The camerawork and mise en scene aren't there to be particularly pretty or even noticeable but their effectiveness and precision are impressive. The acting is top notch except for Ethan Hawke (who isn't bad, he just cannot compete with Hoffman, Shannon and the others).

Yesss! A short produced by my cousin is nominated in the animated short selection!

I have probably seen only 1/10th of the movies you're talking about but yes, it was an exciting year.
