ESCAPES: fascinating impressionistic doc about the actor Hampton Fancher who ended up writing the original script for BLADE RUNNER. Directed by Michael Almereyda and executive produced by Wes Anderson. Cameos: Teri Garr, Sue Lyon, Barbara Hershey. A curio but highly recommended.

The DGA Nominations: GET OUT, LADY BIRD and THE SHAPE OF WATER are actually better directed movies than Paul Thomas Anderson's PHANTOM THREAD?!? Or is ideology trumping aesthetics? I hope not.

This kind of ideology is another example of how people don't care about movies or art anymore. Movies should only be made by a PC democracy! It will hopefully not take years for a generation to rid itself of this kind of mindless, regressive, identity politics groupthink. Resist.

I think you might be right or...I think we are heading toward a Richard Burton vs. Richard Dreyfuss upset from 1978.

Thanks RL. I think Chalamet gave the performance of 2017 but AMPAS members I've talked to aren't into the movie. They seem to love Disaster Artist so I think it's a showdown between Oldman-Franco with Franco actually having an edge because they find Darkest Hour kind of boring.

2017 has been a really interesting year for movies with more good ones than usual. I could easily whip-up a 10-best list--even with December still to come. The first time this has happened in many years.

Just watched SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER for the first time since January 1978 when I was 13. It has aged better than ever. A key 70s movie: crude and messy, sexy and profane; a completely hypnotic, ecstatic experience. John Travolta: amazing. Nothing today compares.
