Denmark’s Oscar® 2019 Entry for the Best International Feature ‘Queen of Hearts’

Denmark’s Oscar® 2019 Entry for the Best International Feature ‘Queen of Hearts’
Director May el-Toukhy tackles a subject that has not yet been explored and is frightening in the possibilities it reveals to us as women assume positions of power and authority. The troublesome specter of exploitive female sexuality is also elaborated upon in the Dutch Oscar submission, ‘Instinct’.

Two highly developed Western European nations, Denmark and The Netherlands, take female sexuality to extremes here in ways we only saw before as men’s terrain with such films as Last Tango in Paris or In the Realm of the Senses.

My initial reaction to both films was a sort of shame, as if somewhere deep inside of me, I understood the impulse that impelled both these women to venture into forbidden zones of action, but wished it had not depicted it so graphically. It would take a psychiatrist to explain the impulse in human nature that makes us enter dangerous sexual territories.

Western Europe Looks for Oscar Glory

Western Europe Looks for Oscar Glory
With wins for Mexico, Chile and Iran in the past three years — and South Korea dominating conversation in the international film Oscar race this year — the Academy has been taking some time off from its usual Europhilia in the category. This year, however, a number of standout contenders look to ensure the Continent a significant presence in the short list at least.

France, Italy and Spain top the all-time record chart for most nominations in the category: from that trio of neighboring countries, Spain looks likeliest to score again. The Spanish selection committee has fallen in and out of love with the country’s most recognized auteur, Pedro Almodovar, over the years — notoriously failing to submit “Talk to Her” in 2002 — but once the glowing Cannes raves for his semi-autobiographical “Pain and Glory” started rolling in, it seemed clear they’d be unable to resist the sentimental reunion of Almodovar and Antonio Banderas.

The Politician Star Reportedly On WB’s Wishlist To Play New Superman

Henry Cavill can continue to insist that he’s still the Man of Steel all he wants, but it seems like Warner Bros. is ready to move on. The studio is currently compiling a list of actors they want to take over the role and according to our sources – the same ones who said J.J. Abrams had been offered a Green Lantern and/or Superman movie months ago, which Variety confirmed the other day – one of the names being discussed is David Corenswet.

The 26-year-old has risen to fame recently due to his performance in Netflix’s The Politician. He’s also appeared in House of Cards, Elementary, Instinct and Affairs of State. Portraying Clark Kent on the big screen would inevitably launch the young actor into stardom though, if Warner Bros. does decide to go with him instead of the other options.

Despite being ranked as the best Superman of all-time by many,

How ‘Antigone’ Director Sophie Deraspe Updated a 2000-Year-Old Heroine for the 21st Century
Antigone” writer, director and cinematographer Sophie Deraspe discussed the inspiration for her film which was drawn from Sophocles’ tragedy at The Wrap screening series which took place on Monday at The Landmark in Los Angeles.

That spoke a lot to me at that time.”
