Wait a minute ... a documentary about minimalism has a sequel? Isn't that sort of a contradiction in terms? ???

It may be a little while until we see a 2021 release but this is the thread for discussion of the films released this year. Anyone have any upcoming films that they're really looking forward to?

Cry Macho ... obviously. ;)

It was different this year, but Times Square still put on a show! I wonder what Lennon fans thought of Andra Day's "Imagine"? I thought it was lovely!

Happy New Year to everyone! It's got to be better than 2020, right?


I dislike all my children and I still take Josey Wales over HPD


Yeah, there was a lot about the bombing on the news. It appears now to have been a bizarre suicide bombing, where the perp apparently didn't want to kill anyone but himself, but still hoped to do a lot of damage, possibly specifically to AT&T, though they don't know that for sure as yet.

I must say the news of the police evacuating as many people as possible reminded me of Richard Jewell ... though it seems the bomber may have saved even more lives with that audio warning/countdown.

But now, back to topic! In New York City, we happily (from my point of view) had the opposite of a white Christmas: A powerful rainstorm, Christmas Eve into Christmas morning, wiped out the last of the snow from a major storm that dumped ten inches on us a week ago, so that early on Christmas afternoon, I could go running in a Central Park that was free of snow cover.  :D

I hope everyone is making the best of the holidays so far, in these very unusual circumstances. Best wishes to all for the New Year!

Well, I actually have the Reelz channel, which I just now discovered, or I would have tried to watch this back when this was originally posted. But it's now scheduled to be rebroadcast now ... and it's also not available on the streaming channel, Reelz, which in any case, apparently still comes with a fee attached even for cable TV Reelz customers. :(

Oops, sorry, honkytonkman! Thank YOU for posting! I've edited my post. ;D

I don't want to see even Clint Eastwood talking about golf! ;D

But thanks for posting, honkytonkman. I know we have at least one avid golfer among our membership. 8)

The trial of the Thalys attack on August 21, 2015, is due to open on November 16 before the specially composed assize court in Paris. According to France Inter information, among the witnesses expected at the hearing, a certain ... Clint Eastwood

This trial has now concluded ... I'm pretty sure Clint didn't actually testify. I wonder if he submitted a deposition of some sort?

By Constant M?heut

    Dec. 17, 2020

PARIS -- Four men involved in a terrorist attack on a Paris-bound train in 2015 that was foiled only by the courageous action of other passengers were convicted of attempted murder, complicity and criminal terrorist association, and sentenced to prison terms ranging from seven years to life.

Ayoub El Khazzani, who is accused of being the main attacker on the train, was sentenced to life in prison.

According to the testimony, a French citizen, who has been identified only by his first name, Damien, was the first to tackle the attacker, quickly followed by another passenger, Mark Moogalian, who has dual French and American citizenship. Mr. Moogalian struggled with Mr. El Khazzani and was wounded by a bullet fired by the assailant, the court heard.

The three other Americans -- Anthony Sadler; Alek Skarlatos, a specialist in the National Guard from Oregon; and Airman First Class Spencer Stone of the U.S. Air Force, who were all friends on a vacation -- then joined the fight and managed to subdue the assailant, according to prosecutors. Mr. El Khazzani's guns malfunctioned, the court was told, hampering his attack.

Mr. Skarlatos told the Paris court that when he first saw the gunman appear in the train car, 'It felt like time stopped.' As he joined other passengers in an attempt to overpower him, Mr. Skarlatos said that the assailant had fought back furiously. First, Mr. Skarlatos said, he brandished the assault rifle, then a pistol and, finally, a box cutter in the chaotic clash.

'In my mind, we were supposed to die that day,' Mr. Skarlatos said, noting that the attack had changed his life.

Mr. El Khazzani was eventually subdued on the floor of the train carriage and bound up with a tie, prosecutors said. The train rerouted to Arras, in northern France, where the police arrested him.

The heroism of the passengers later became the focus of a Clint Eastwood movie, 'The 15:17 to Paris.' Mr. Moogalian, Mr. Sadler, Mr. Skarlatos and Mr. Stone were among eight people later awarded the Legion of Honor, France's highest award, for their roles in thwarting the attack.

Perry, I edited your last two posts to supply the link to the Deadline site, and format the quotes as such. Hope you don't mind.

His birth place of course is USA. But he spent his years of learning and practicing cinematography in France, and as so many times he has said his approach in lighting and camera set-ups belongs to France school of photography, and not an American one.
p.s. We all know that Tom Stern was most influenced by Conrad Hall, the great French DoP, in a way that after he passed away, Tom Stern decided to quit this industry for good.

I didn't know any of that, thanks!

another funny and yet important truth about Eastwood is that his DoPs for the last 20 years (Stern, Belanger and now probably Davis) were all non-Americans. Yves Belanger (I'm not sure if it was him or Tom Stern) once said in an interview that Clint likes to shoot films in an European way than American way. and that's why in his movies camera operators are the most important crew member of camera department.

Tom Stern is non-American? ???

Great news about the film wrapping, and about HBO Max and Roku!

Now I have to try to figure out whether my HBO cable subscription gives me free access to HBO Max. ???

(Was: Clint Eastwood to Direct And Star in Cry Macho for Warner Bros.)

Even though there has been very little actual information or news up until now, with the filming scheduled to conclude soon, it seems high time to change the title of this thread to our traditional style: "Production Information and News." Maybe when the film is in the can and there's no danger of crowds gathering, we'll start to hear a little more from official sources.

We'll post all updates here, official or not, until the time comes when the reviews start to appear, and then we'll start a new thread for that.  :)

We will probably learn more about this film soon. At least, I hope so.
This is an unusual situation, because of that pandemic.
However, when I checked the IMDb website, I noticed that one cast member has been added.
This is Sebestien Soliz who is cast as Worker.
I do not know him.

I'm sure the extreme secrecy is due to pandemic precautions.

As for Sebestien Sol?z ... Interesting guy.

Thanks, everyone! That is a cool video. I'm curious about what all names they've made those videos for! :D
Follow the link in the upper left-hand corner to Claude Marceau's YouTube channel. Then click on "Videos." Not many are as eminently repurposeable as "Christopher"! ;D

Thanks, AKA, but I have never owned an Apple device. (Microsoft and Google own my soul, besides all my information.) And I'm not about to invest in an Apple TV now, when I have a perfectly good streaming device already in Roku. I guess I'll just count on WarnerMedia and Roku working something out before Clint's film comes out. They'll have much more incentive to do so with this latest development.

But I do appreciate the suggestion! Maybe this will be useful to others on the Board. :)
