The Oscar campaigns are starting up, the festival circuit is declaring winners left and right, and here at Filmcurious, the September Film Awards are upon us.
Summer is coming to an end, which means that it’s time for me to give out awards to the films I watched in the last three months. I hope I still know how to do this.
(It’s quite a long read, so go get some cookies.)
I’ve been pretty MIA lately due to exams. But I can’t pass up on the opportunity to give my awards for the month of May, even though it’s a week late. Without further ado, I present the second installment of awards season. Enjoy!
From now on, it’s award season every month on filmcurious. Fashionably late I present you an overview of the films I’ve watched in April. Don’t expect a boring list, but find out which very special awards I give to films such as Ryan Gosling‘s Lost River or Quentin Tarantino‘s Pulp Fiction.
Only six more days until one of the world’s oldest, and most renowned, film festival kicks off it’s 2015 edition. It promises to be an interesting couple of days at La Croisette. Joel and Ethan Coen are the two Presidents of the Jury of the 68th Festival de Cannes. Other members include Xavier Dolan, fresh of his Mommy success, and Jake Gyllenhaal. That snub still hurts.
Below, you’ll find an overview of this year’s nominees as well as some of the most anticipated films that aren’t in competition. From the American Carol, which is obviously heading to the Oscars, to Son of Saul, a debut by a Hungarian filmmaker. You can always count on Cannes for delivering an interesting mix.
