Oscar Talk Post-Telluride, Pre-Toronto: Descendants, Shame, Dangerous Method, Albert Nobbs

Thompson on Hollywood

In Contention’s Kris Tapley and I hit a timing snag on Oscar Talk this week, with him three hours behind in Los Angeles and me traveling to the Toronto Fest. We grabbed a shortish Oscar Talk nonetheless, and a cantankerous one, as we disagree on everything, it seems, except the exciting prospect of Eddie Murphy as Oscar host. We can promise you a longer one next week, when we will have seen even more films. We are both bullish on Alexander Payne’s The Descendants, argue over Glenn Close’s Albert Nobbs, Steve McQueen’s Shame and David Cronenberg’s A Dangerous Method.

Here’s the podcast.

ADM was not meant to be a project of passion. Cronenberg was aiming for an intellectual movie as rigid as the ideologies discussed. You either get it or not.

I agree with Kris Tapley. Shame is a MUCH, better film than A Dangerous Method. ADM is nice and clinical but lacks passion, soul. Shame is darker but more moving. It stays with you.
