Annihilation Tidbits


Annihilation, the next film by Alex Garland, is one of the most anticipated films starring Natalie this year. Although we have not yet seen any trailer or official photo, here we have a couple of tidbits from the last days.

-British director Danny Boyle did a Facebook Live yesterday on Trainspotting 2, his last film, and at one point said he saw a sneak peek of the movie and comented it’s wonderful and Natalie is amazing in it (around 17:00).

-Also, it looks like there’s going to be a test screening today in New York, so presumably we’ll soon see the first real reactions about the film. Let us hope that the expectations will be fulfilled. For me it’s undoubtedly one of the most interesting projects of the year.

The next category in the Charlie Awards is to see what upcoming Natalie film you are most anticipating. It’s never completely fair, since some films we know a lot about and some we know next to nothing, but hey – who said life is fair?

Jackie Review

I finally had the opportunity to see Jackie and thought I’d quickly weigh in with some thoughts.

I’m not a big fan of biopics in general but was optimistic after hearing that Jackie would be taking an unconventional approach. The film definitely does that, with a structure that hops forward and back along the film’s timeline.

Personally, there were few instances where this approach elevated the material for me. The ending moments, cutting to different scenes while building on an emotional state, are sublime but I mainly found the experience to be quite passive. I never really felt the stakes of what Jackie wanted to achieve.

No Awards for Jackie

Unfortunately (as it was expected), Jackie hasn´t won any of the three awards it opted at the Oscars ceremony. Natalie, as announced yesterday, could not attend the gala … but she was one of the protagonists of a short humorous video. Here it is:

By the way, the final mistake in the best movie category has been really embarrassing…

Oldie but Goodie

Natalie will not be on the Oscars red carpet today for a very good reason, but to balance it, here’s a little gem from the past: a few unpublished photos from Bruce Weber’s 1998 photoshoot for Vogue Italia:

Awards Weekend


Finally it’s here: the Oscars ceremony is celebrated tomorrow, and we will know soon if Natalie or the film by Pablo Larraín obtain some of the awards in which the movie is nominated.

Unfortunately there are rumors that say Natalie may not be able to attend the ceremony because of her advanced pregnancy. Well… perhaps today we know for sure. This Saturday the Independent Spirit Awards are also celebrated, and Jackie is nominated in four categories, including Natalie for best actress.

However, Natalie’s chances have been declining in recent weeks, and the most likely winners are Isabelle Huppert in the Independent and Emma Stone in the Academy Awards.

Anyway, we’ll see if there’s any surprise about it. We’ll soon know…

Edit: it’s confirmed. Natalie will not attend both ceremonies due to pregnancy. This is the statement:

“Due to my pregnancy, I am unable to attend the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards,” says Portman in a statement. “I feel so lucky to be honored among my fellow nominees and wish them the most beautiful of weekends.”

Jackie: my review


After months waiting, Jackie opened in Spain the last Friday, and finally I had the chance to see it. After all this time, and all the good reviews, I was afraid that the film might not fulfilled my expectations… nothing further of reality.

It´s a GREAT film. It´s probably the more accessible and conventional Larrain´s film to date, but still it´s one of the most interesting biopics that have been made in recent years on an American figure… precisely because there is not a typical biopic.

Watching the film, I understand perfectly why it had so weak commercial success in the US: this is not a detailed story of what happened those sad days on November, it´s a deep study of a character for the four days more stressful and critical of her life. Yes, I say well the word “character” because, as Larraín said in one of the many interviews for the promotion of the film, this is a “fiction told from the intimacy of the private”. We’ll never know for sure what Jackie really was, but the film shows us a person full of nuances, contradictory, selfish, self-centered, but also intelligent, determined and emotional, which helped build, almost without intending, the legend of her husband.

There are also another reason why the movie is not conventional: who goes to a movie theater to see this waiting learn the ins and outs of all that happened these critical days for American history, will feel probably disappointed. the film part of the premise that everyone knows the story, and yes, gives very accurate brushstrokes here and there of what happened behind the scenes … but this is about Jackie and her vital experience during these days, and the film introduces you fully in her personal experience in those hard times.

And here is where Natalie comes into scene: simply she’s superb. the best perfomance of her career, certainly. She cries, laughs, despairs, she confesses in front of the camera. An amalgam of emotions that she shows perfectly in every scene. All of them filmed a few inches of her face by Larrain, always attentive to each gesture and each word.
