THE FOX SEARCHLIGHT PARTY 2017

Doug Jones & Richard Jenkins

Two finer gentlemen you could never hope to meet. Richard Jenkins is a national treasure of American Cinema. Doug Jones is one of the kindest human beings I've ever met; his performance as the monster in "The Shape of Water," as contrasted with his ebullient personality, reminds me of Boris Karloff — my favorite movie monster actor of all time.

As for pleasant people to chat with, Guillermo del Toro is a filmmaker I'd like to write a book about. He remembered me from the time I interviewed him in Cannes for "Pan's Labyrinth." Mike spoke Spanish with him and I learned that he made "The Shape of Water" for $19.3 million. Amazing!

Jonathan Dayton  Valerie Faris & Billie Jean King

Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, the husband-and-wife directing team behind "Battle of the Sexes" chat with Billie Jean King. Just a lovely scene.  

Mike & Cole

And then there were these two reprobates drinking up everything in sight and carrying on like a couple of podcast pals living it up in NYC at the truly impressive Nomad Hotel at 28th and Broadway, where the service was truly Five Stars. Kudos to the great folks at Fox Searchlight and at the Nomad Hotel; you guys were awesome, and the food and cocktails were inspired!

HAPPY END — Trailer & Poster

Happy_end

You had me at Michael Haneke. And then you add Isabelle Huppert and Jean-Louis Trintignant, and we've got a very promising movie on hand. Really looking forward to seeing the latest effort from Haneke!

 

THE POST — TRAILER & POSTER

Post

Steven Spielberg's latest movie has crowd-pleaser written all over it for the 50+ generations to which it is clearly aimed. Streep and Hanks are showing their age. It's a reminder that we won't always have these great artists around with us. So, regardless of how predictably tame the narrative about the Washington Post leaking the Pentagon Papers might seem by today's standards of Wikileaks reporting, get out and see this movie. Even if it flops at the box office, "The Post" will be a success.

BOOKSHOP — POSTER

Bookshop

This is one of those movie posters that draws you in. I love how the line on Emily Mortimer's skirt reflect the bindings of the books beside her. With its great cast and old fashioned imagery, "The Bookshop" makes you want to see it.

"Set in a small town in 1959 England, it is the story of a woman who decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop, a decision which becomes a political minefield."
