  • Best Woody Allen Movie Woody Allen Didn't Make
    (”Tamara Drewe” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    Thanks to an alert publicist at Sony Pictures Classics who sent me a screener, last night I watched Stephen Frears’ “Tamara Drewe,” a film that was screened for several weeks before opening last week but which I couldn’t fit into my schedule. (True, I could have seen it at the multiplex, but not last night and maybe not for a while.) I’m mixed on Frears but this is one of his, and the year’s, very best films, a country-house frolic of adulterers, frustrated writers, heavy-breathing wenches and self-absorbed rockers that is based on a graphic novel by Posy Simonds that carries a blurb from (!) Tom Wolfe. “With a few adroit lines,” writes Wolfe, “she CATscans the characters in Tamara Drewe and shows us what lit’ry people, writers, editors, critics, and academics alike, are made of, the vanities, status longings, jealousies and other hurt feelings they wear on their sleeves, as well as the lust they keep only halfway stuffed into their jeans.” In a way, this film is this year’s “An Education” — a funny, literate, British treat — but in a way it’s different. Gemma Arterton is sweet and lovely as the title character, but I don’t think she has much of a chance to nab a Best Actress nomination (and it would be hard to put her in the supporting category since the movie is named for her). To me, the real revelation is Jessica Barden as a snarky, manipulative, devious and frustrated teen who secretly orchestrates numerous calamities, and keeps the plot speeding along, in order to get closer to a rock drummer (a very fine Dominic Cooper) whose band is passing through the country to do an outdoor concert. Still, I think this delightful, superbly acted and intricately plotted movie rates a shot at a nom for Best Adapted Screenplay or maybe even for Best Picture, though it will be competing in the latter category with Mike Leigh’s “Another Year,” another low-key (though dramatic) slice of Britishness.It’s entirely possible that the Academy’s Anglophilia isn’t deep enough to award three slots to distinctly UK projects such as these two and “The King’s Speech.” Did I mention “Tamara Drewe” is loosely based on “Far From the Madding Crowd”? The literary pedigree can only aid its chances.]]>

  • Ten Best Films of 2010
    (”Tamara Drewe” is briefly mentioned in this.)
    As I said before, almost all of the films that were specifically made to win awards this year failed to excite me. So my ten best list of the year hails some films that came from, I think, real passion and produce large emotional reactions (including laughter). Click through to the link to find out why I picked them and what my colleague Lou Lumenick selected. My list: 1. 127 Hours 2. Iron Man 2 3. Mademoiselle Chambon 4. My Dog Tulip 5. Another Year 6. Tamara Drewe 7. Hot Tub Time Machine 8. I Love You, Phillip Morris 9. Youth in Revolt 10. Tiny Furniture]]>

Want even more consensus?

Skip Rotten Tomatoes, they’re biased SJWs too afraid to criticize things like the Ghost Busters reboot. Avoid giving them ad revenue by using the minimalist alternative, Cinesift, for a quick aggregate:
