LA LA LAND, MANCHESTER & MOONLIGHT WIN BIG AT NYFCC


I'll refrain from commenting upon my feelings about some of the New York Film Critics Circle's choices today, except to remark that they are... mixed. In the race to be first to announce, the NYFCC has actually come up third among critics groups this awards season, and so decides to sit on three fences at once, showering award after award upon Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight, but surprising by giving La La Land their Best Film prize.

EARLY BIRDS MISS A FEW WORMS TOO: 2016 CRITICS CHOICE NOMINATIONS


In their latest desperate attempt at appearing 'relevant,' the Broadcast Film Critics Association has bumped its awards dates way up, resulting in nominations arriving today, the 1st of December, and awards next week, on the 11th. Subsequently, this group has not had the chance to catch all of the titles that would otherwise have been eligible; that hasn't stopped them before, though, and it didn't stop them shunting Star Wars: The Force Awakens into their already-announced Best Picture lineup after it turned out to be a huge hit, despite no members having even cast a vote for it. That decision prompted resignations from the BFCA, and their choice to push their 2016 dates so far forward (and thereby surely only diminishing their potential to maintain relevance to the Oscar race) has prompted more still. It's a laughable situation from a laughable organization, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Nominations and awards for documentaries have already taken place.

REVIEW - PATERSON (JIM JARMUSCH)


Jim Jarmusch returns once more to reclaim the rights to hipster culture. Remember when it once was his? Its subsequent co-opting by Wes Anderson doesn't appear to have bothered him much - see the brief appearance here from Jared Gilman and Kara Hayward. But its normalization and, thus, commercialization is implicitly something against which he is urged to react; Paterson is his laidback retort to those vacuous imitators and consumers, blemishing his legacy. In gentle tones, amid his characters' unusually ordinary milieu wherein Jarmusch's idiosyncrasies appear a little incongruous, this is a filmmaker making a definitive stamp upon an expanding cultural landscape, a stamp made with a soft touch, and somehow all the more persuasive for it. Persuasive, yes, but compelling? Alas, no. It's not only Paterson's pace that is pedestrian but its points - rhythm in repetition and then in variation, a pleasing yet predictable outlook on structure and pattern that rather saps the film of vitality. Its careful design is arguably too careful, too particular to permit any substantial deviation, Affonso Goncalves' editing too reverent to trim his director's work of its loose strands. Paterson is laudably authentic, that feature that regularly affirms the quality of Jim Jarmusch's most particular works, and thereby evades any decline into preciousness. Yet its lightness ironically turns out to be a burden, and eventually weighs down a film with monotony that was surely intended as a soothing stability of tone and constancy of incident. Jarmusch makes his point and makes it well, but makes it again and again in this fine but frustrating retreat, back to basics.

CAHIERS DU CINEMA CROWNS TONI ERDMANN THE BEST FILM OF 2016


The leak was correct! Cahiers du Cinema, that most prestigious of centres of film criticism, has unveiled its choices for its ever-anticipated year-end poll, and they're precisely as yesterday's leaked list suggested. It looks like failing to win over George Miller's Cannes jury might have been the best thing to happen to Maren Ade's Toni Erdmann, as it can add first place on this poll to its already-hefty roster of accolades, including a FIPRESCI Grand Prix. Indeed, the entire top seven here is comprised of Cannes competition entries, not one of which claimed a jury award at the festival in May. Check it all out below, and, if you haven't seen any (or even some) of the films in this top ten, make sure to check them out too!

1. Toni Erdmann (Maren Ade)
2. Elle (Paul Verhoeven)
3. The Neon Demon (Nicolas Winding Refn)
4. Aquarius (Kleber Mendonca Filho)
5. Slack Bay (Bruno Dumont)
6. Julieta (Pedro Almodovar)
7. Staying Vertical (Alain Guiraudie)
8. La Loi de la Jungle (Antonin Peretjatko)
9. Carol (Todd Haynes)
10. The Woods Dreams Are Made Of (Claire Simon)

REVIEW - LOVING (JEFF NICHOLS)


Such a gentle story of such a ferocious fight. Alas, one can hardly help but feel that Jeff Nichols settles too comfortably into a particular groove with Loving, one of unmannered restraint and unforced empathy. Largely removed from the courtroom bluster that defines most dramas about momentous legal battles, the film is instead a portrait of the ordinary love of the ordinary folk engaging in this most extraordinary case, and for ordinary reasons. That's potent, but entirely plain in Loving, and the warm calm with which Nichols paints this portrait never even threatens to ignite into the kind of blaze, if only a temporary one, that surely must have burnt beneath this struggle. The roles of Richard and Mildred Loving, the interracial couple whose Supreme Court case struck down anti-miscegenation laws throughout the U.S., are inhabited by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga with simple grace; Negga is particularly unpretentious in her refusal to relent to easy characterization. It's a trait that she shares with her writer-director, though one may yearn, on his part, for some more of the verve that he has displayed in previous films - even inferior ones - and which all too infrequently emerges in Loving. Nichols' earnest, unassuming picture of rural life in America's South possesses a beautiful, genuine palpability in its authentic accents and in Adam Stone's cinematography, but little of the artistic nor conceptual purpose that might bolster its political purpose, itself already understated. This film might claim to know the Lovings, but its knowledge exceeds its understanding; in merely showing, rather than co-opting, their boldness, it eventually does them a minor disservice.

REVIEW - A UNITED KINGDOM (AMMA ASANTE)


A stultifying loveliness lingers over Amma Asante's A United Kingdom, one of those inspiring historical true stories whose hagiographic tendencies bring out the laziest in their directors. A shame that Guy Hibbert's dialogue is so mundane, since both he and Asante demonstrate an impressive awareness of the essential interchange between the personal and the political amongst those who cannot evade it. It's a trait that simmers through A United Kingdom, though precisely when one anticipates it boiling over, Asante's penchant for stylistic prosaicism keeps the film's potential passions in check. It's less that she wishes to maintain a sense of balanced, non-judgemental objectivity, more that she genuinely seems to trust in the techniques of the most modest of filmmakers, those whose workmanlike, adaptable styles have made them ever safe fits for similar middlebrow period pieces and TV movies. Even the film's necessary dips into darkness are shrouded by gentility and brushed off in the pursuit of hope. A United Kingdom is thus an obstinately lovely film, but there are less attractive attributes to which to aspire than loveliness. It makes for a pleasant accompaniment throughout, whether in the vibrant, committed performances or in the smart period recreation and overall aesthetic scheme. As such, there are far worse films to which you could bring your granny to than A United Kingdom, but sometimes, don't you just wish you could leave granny at home?

2016 SATELLITE AWARD NOMINATIONS: LOL LOL LAND


I defy anyone who can browse through the nominations for the 2016 Satellite Awards, either at a glance or in immense depth, and find any structure to the ordering of their lists that doesn't immediately imply 'ranked order.' No rly, these are in order of preference. It's hilarious. They're not the only 'critics' group to make this mistake, but since their taste in film is already fairly atrocious, it's reasonable to expect their grasp of formatting to match it. These guys are so on the ball that their awards ceremony, scheduled for February, doesn't even have a confirmed date yet. Just February. This is classic, truly classic.
