Has anyone seen any particularly useful reports/reviews of Wenders' Anselm Kiefer documentary? One of the few "contemporary" artists whose work (totally unexpectedly) ensnared me at first sight -- at a long-long-ago exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Even from looking at some of his works on my phone, yeah, ensnaring. Would’ve been wonderful to see their odd textures up close. Looks like he used physical materials like straw and pottery shards in his work.

This spring we encountered two of Kiefer's works -- unexpectedly -- during our visits here and there to see friends and family. One at the Norton Museum in West Palm Beach and the other at the Cleveland Art Museum. In both cases, there was a roomful of contemporary art -- and my reaction was there's one and only one work here that demands my attention. And in each case, it was a hitherto unknown Anselm Kiefer work. I don't really know why his work is so mesmerizing, but I'm glad it is. So I want to see Wenders' documentary as much as I want to see Perfect Day (at least).

I caught an Anselm screening at the Academy Museum last night. A+. Best film ever about an artist and the process of making art. And the meaning of art. Best 3D film I've ever seen (I haven't seen many.) It is transcendent for anyone who has seen large-scale retrospectives of his work (which I have).

But you don't need to be wholly familiar with his work to really enjoy this. All Godard fans will love it.

Oscars Shortlists for 10 Categories

Estonian entry for the best international film (Smoke Sauna Sisterhood, also for best doc. category) declined, but we somehow have 2 animated shorts (Eeva and Koerkorter) that made past the initial selection.

I don’t think Joe Hisaishi has ever been shortlisted before. It would be nice to see him get some recognition from the Academy

Armenia making the cut for International Feature is interesting. It’s from an Armenian-American filmmaker, and it’s the first time they’ve ever had a shortlisted feature

Oscar nominations are announced in 3 weeks. I wonder what this year’s big surprise CODA/Green Book/Lion beneficiary of unexpectedly widespread acclaim is going to be.

I think there’s still a decent chance that Air gets a Best Picture nomination.

It might be The Holdovers.

Unfortunately due to being released too late to qualify it looks as if The American Society of Magical Negroes will have to wait until next year.

That would be more expected. Da'Vine Joy Randolph has won pretty much every critics award for supporting actress, and Giamatti and the film as a whole are not doing too shabby either. I meant more a film that comes out of nowhere, hasn’t previously won that many awards, and (maybe) isn’t really that good. But I haven’t really seen any big Oscar pushes for such a film this year.

I came away impressed with it, despite being very apprehensive about watching what was marketed (falsely) as a goofy comedy. It wouldn’t surprise me if it got 4 or 5 noms but comes away without winning anything

It would be interesting to see if The Color Purple gets noms besides the expected music ones. The original film infamously got 11 nominations and didn’t win any of them

Re: surprises, I think Saltburn’s social media popularity will get it a place in the Best Picture lineup. Lots of people watched it over the holidays and people are connecting with it. Ironically, it was projected to make it into the Oscars before it screened and expectations were lowered after it premiered, and now the people may yet speak and save it for the lineup

It is interesting to watch the rollout for this one. It’s got no buzz, no awards, it’s sort of flopping at the box office, and it didn’t even get a nomination from the Costume Designers Guild or Set Decorators Society. But Spielberg, Oprah, and Quincy Jones are producers, and they have a LOT of friends in the Academy. And Danielle Brooks is getting attention for her supporting role. We’ll see what happens with the PGA and SAG awards.

I don’t think it will necessarily be a surprise, but Past Lives is going the be “The Little Indie That Could” this year.

I think it's the film most likely to spoil Oppenheimer's night, though Poor Things could also do that.
