I’ve updated the gallery with posters, movie stills and screen captures from the 2006 film ‘Notes on a Scandal’ in which Cate played Sheba Hart. I have some video clips to add soon, so keep checking back for those!
Thanks for the feedback on the new layout, I’m so glad you like it! Today I have updated the gallery with lots of goodies related to ‘The Good German’ in which Cate plays ‘Lena Brandt’ alongside George Clooney! I’ve added movie stills, screen captures and a movie poster.
Screen captures from Elizabeth (1998) have been added to the gallery. My DVD has some extra’s on it, so I’ll do my best to screencap those also. I also have a copy of Elizabeth: The Golden Age, so expect screencaps from that movie coming soon! For now, enjoy the captures!
The trade publication Editor & Publisher has disclosed many of the details of next Sunday’s cover story in The New York Times Magazine about I’m Not There, in which six actors play Bob Dylan. The article, titled “This Is Not a Bob Dylan Movie,” quotes Cate Blanchett, who plays one of the Dylans as saying, “I don’t know that it does make sense. … I don’t think the film even strives to make sense, in a way.” Producer Harvey Weinstein, who says in the article that he will get Blanchett an Oscar nomination or kill himself, also remarks, “Nothing’s ever been attempted like this before [in film]. … There are scenes and episodes that are amongst the best filmmaking that has taken place in American film. … There are other sections that are going to be a little bumpy.” Speaking at the New York Film Festival Tuesday night, director Todd Haynes was asked about his decision to cast Blanchett as one of the Dylans. According to the online Radar magazine, he replied, “For all the ways that Dylan is associated as a guy’s artist or a heterosexual kind of icon, his flamboyance and foppery during that time were profound, and it must have been a freaker for people at the time.” The film is due to open on November 21.
– the highly anticipated Bob Dylan biopic in which several different actors(both male and female alike) portray the iconic singer/songwriter – may not be released in the U.S. until Nov. 21, but that doesn’t mean our European friends across the Atlantic can’t give us a little taste of what’s to come. As the film has already been shown twice at the Toronto and London film festivals, as well as the full country-wide release in Italy, it’s only natural that a YouTube teaser clip would pop up here and there to whet the appetites of rabid Dylan-ites across the U.S. (quite possibly increasing the amounts of foam already forming around the corners of their respective mouths).
The film’s cast list is jaw dropping, bearing big names like Cate Blanchett (as one version of Dylan, above), Richard Gere (Dylan again, but this time doing his best “Billy the Kid” impression), and Heath Ledger. But even more impressive is the soundtrack that includes some of the most influential artists in music today. From Eddie Vedder to Stephen Malkmus, Iron & Wine to Sonic Youth, Jeff Tweedy to Charlotte Gainsbourg.
Here’s the clip from the film, which includes a scene with Christian Bale as Dylan singing gospel music and preaching the word, references to the singer’s infamously fan-panned born-again Christian phase during the late ’70s to the early ’80s:
