WEEKLY WRAP: ‘127 Hours’ dissent, BIFA nods, interviews

Posted by · 5:10 am · November 6th, 2010

Guy didn’t much care for “127 Hours.” That got you talking.

Happily, Kris did, and got talking to director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Simon Beaufoy.

The British Independent Film Award nominations threw some surprises into the mix, handing scads of noms to “The King’s Speech”… and “Kick-Ass.”

Chad’s Life Without Oscar column eased into the late 1980s, showcasing one films on either side of the Hollywood border.

Tech Support took on the the ever-unpredictable (and seemingly rather sparse) Best Makeup category.

Guy closed out his coverage of last month’s London Film Festival with a list of the fest’s standout films.

Interviewed out of the festival, meanwhile, were two names essential to US indie buffs: actress Patricia Clarkson and writer-director Aaron Katz.

We began our annual habit of spotlighting original songs in Oscar contention, including tunes from “Waiting for Superman” and “127 Hours.”

Still on “127 Hours,” we were given exclusive access to a video on the film’s cinematography.

Big trailer debuts this week included “The Way Back” and “The Illusionist” — the latter (with our endorsement) was also one of the week’s poster unveilings, along with a roundly slated one-sheet for “The King’s Speech.”

Once more, Anne and Kris put a bow on the week with another episode of Oscar Talk.
