Lip Maestro Shade 214 & Oggi Magazine Scans

Hi, Blanchetters!

A full length trailer for TÁR was recently rated and the length of the trailer is 2 minutes and 25 seconds. It will likely be released this week or the week after which coincides with the world premiere of the movie at Venice Film Festival.

Magazine Scans

Below is a part of the magazine article that is a google translated version from Italian to English. Original text can be found on the scans.

CATE THE WOMAN WHO LOVES WOMEN

At the Venice Film Festival, Blanchett will play Lydia Tár, a conductor who falls in love with two musicians. For other performances as a lesbian she has become a gay icon. But she says: “I also played an elf, yet I’m not immortal”.

Ferragamo shoes, tailor-made suits, scarf, Van Cleef & Arpels jewels, vintage handbag on the arm, chic, unresolved and courageous, yet also revolutionary: Cate Blanchett in Carol is a bourgeois close to divorce who falls in love with a saleslady, aspiring photographer, Therese, in the 50s. No wonder that they are waiting for her at the Venice Film Festival (31 August – 10 September): critics and cinephiles and the LGBTQ + community – all of them curious and anxious for her new film Tár, in competition at #Venezia79. Blanchett is Lydia Tár, one of the greatest conductors in the world and certainly the greatest in Germany. The environment is competitive and male chauvinistic. She must always prove that she is good, that she is up to the role, that she really knows the music. Plus she falls in love with two musicians. The trailer, recently posted on the web, does not speak of all this. On the contrary, it speaks of a pandemic, of bees, of the challenges that await us. There is no life of Lydia Tár who in the trailer dresses simple, in light green and appears unadorned, the opposite of Carol, with her wavy hairstyle. Biennale Cinema keep their mouths sewn together, but there is certainly this – that Blanchett will be very good in this new role of hers with (also) a homosexual theme.

Blanchett has been a gay icon since Carol’s day, very proud of it. When she posed with Nicole Kidman in a jacket and boyish pants in 2019, the web appreciated it a lot, they had butterflies in their stomachs, loving what is called her “lesbian aesthetics”. In a video from 2020, Blanchett jokingly said aloud: “I’m a lesbian.”. It happened during Instagram live with Sarah Paulson, a pansexual, star of American Horror Story, and co-star in Mrs America. Moreover, speaking of Mrs America (which tells the story of the US feminist movement), Blanchett has remained a gay icon, although in the series she plays the ultraconservative, Phyllis Schlafly, married for 44 years to the same man and mother of six children. Practically it is the only point of contact between the two. Blanchett has been married since 1997 (25 years of marriage) to playwright Andrew Upton, a bearded gentleman who looks like everyone’s neighbor, they have four children and live at Highwell House. They also have a wing dedicated to their art collection. One of the many times she was asked about her marriage, she replied: “With my husband I won the lottery and consequently with my family.”

Documentary Now! at TIFF 2022, & Armani Beauty LIP MAESTRO

Hi, everyone!

It has been announced that three episodes of Documentary Now! season 4 is part of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) Docs lineup. Also, check out another video from Armani Beauty for their LIP Maestro ad.

Documentary Now! at TIFF

One of the Documentary Now! episodes premiering at TIFF is Two Hairdressers of Bagglyport, which stars Cate Blanchett as a salon staff and Harriet Walter as the salon owner. The festival will run from September 8th to 18th with tickets for general public to go on sale on September 5th, full schedule will be released on August 23rd.

In a whimsical touch, Thom Powers (TIFF Docs Programmer) has tucked something unexpected into the TIFF nonfiction slate—episodes from the upcoming new season of Documentary Now!, the IFC comedy series created by Fred Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Myers and Rhys Thomas that lovingly parodies the earnest rigor of documentarians and the documentary form.

“We’re going to be previewing three new episodes from season 4,” Powers says. “One of those episodes is called My Monkey Grifter, which is a take on My Octopus Teacher, with the British actor Jamie Demetriou who people will know from Fleabag and other shows. Fred Armisen also makes an appearance in My Monkey Grifter. The second episode is a really warmhearted homage to Agnès Varda, starring the French actress Liliane Rovère, who fans of Call My Agent! will know as the endearing older agent in that series. And she is just pitch perfect as Agnès Varda in that episode. And the third episode is a pet project of Cate Blanchett, who has previously appeared on Documentary Now! And we’re expecting several of the people involved with these episodes to be at TIFF.”

Powers continues, “To have Documentary Now! as part of the [TIFF] selection not only brings a smile to our face, but [the show] is also just such a deeply researched and deeply appreciative reverie about documentary filmmaking that I couldn’t resist inviting it to be part of the program.”

Sì Passione Éclat to be launched in 2022

Hi, everyone!

A new variant of Sì perfume — Sì Passione Éclat is planned to be released this year. Also, the screenplay for Don’t Look Up is now online.

Eau de parfum Sì Passione Éclat de Parfum by Giorgio Armani – a bright new interpretation of the legendary Sì flavor. It personifies bold and modern femininity, reminds of the power of passion that illuminates life, filling it with meaning. This luminous rose-floral composition with a sensual heart of roses inspires women to reveal their strengths, to conquer the world with confidence and grace.

Sì Passione Éclat de Parfum opens with a sparkling citrus note of bergamot and a bright accord of black currant, demonstrating the lightness and new green freshness of the fruity notes characteristic of Sì aromas. At the heart of the composition is an attractive feminine duet of roses: gentle pastel-powdery centifolia and sweet, enveloping damascene. The base is composed of white musk, which gives the fragrance a clean and soft sensuality, while vanilla extract gives it a warm, captivating sound. The sillage is light, fresh and at the same time delicate and enveloping.

The iconic Si bottle, with a luminous ruby ??lacquer finish, reflects the radiant character of the fragrance, sparkling like a jewel.

The perfume is currently showing on the Russian version of Armani Beauty website.

Don’t Look Up Updates

The screenplay for Don’t Look Up is now available online. For anyone interested, click here to download.

Nightmare Alley Premiere

TIFF is proud to present the world premiere of Guillermo del Toro’s Nightmare Alley in conjunction with the red-carpet world premiere at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, and a simultaneous screening at the David Geffen Theater at the Academy Museum in Los Angeles. TIFF Bell Lightbox is the exclusive Canadian venue to host this screening of Nightmare Alley from Searchlight Pictures. Immediately following the global screening, a Q&A with the cast and the filmmakers will be streamed live from New York in Cinema 1 and Cinema 2 at TIFF Bell Lightbox.

November 24: On sale to TIFF Members
November 25: On sale to the public

Nightmare Alley features Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper as the charismatic but down-on-his-luck Stanton Carlisle, who endears himself to clairvoyant Zeena (Toni Collette) and her has-been mentalist husband Pete (David Strathairn) at a travelling carnival. He crafts a golden ticket to success, using this newly acquired knowledge to grift the wealthy elite of 1940s New York society. With the virtuous Molly (Rooney Mara) loyally by his side, Stanton plots to con a dangerous tycoon (Richard Jenkins) with the aid of a mysterious psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) who might be his most formidable opponent yet. The film also stars Willem Dafoe, Ron Perlman, Mary Steenburgen, and David Strathairn.

After taking a turn down Nightmare Alley, we invite you to come see the director’s top five influential film noirs from 20th Century Studios’ golden age of hard-boiled cinema — all hand-picked by del Toro himself, and screening December 3–19 at TIFF Bell Lightbox on archival 35mm prints or in restored presentations.
