It’s time to visit the week that was via our Around the Circuit piece, where we look back at articles that we feel are worth your time covering the Oscar race, new releases, or really just anything film related.
Link(s) of the week:
Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln debuted as a “Secret Screening” at the New York Film Festival on Monday night, and the buzz around the internet was almost immediate and (mostly) universal in praise for the film. Josh Lasser at In Contention called the film one of Spielberg’s best. Scott Feinberg at The Hollywood Reporter assessed Lincoln’s chances after seeing the film, while Brad Brevet at Rope of Silicon did the same after collecting the buzz from those in attendance. Meanwhile, Angie Han at Slash Film wished for a version that showed more flaws in Lincoln’s character.
Deadline’s Pete Hammond addresses a growing concern in the Oscar’s Documentary Feature category, with rule changes around the nomination process that are sparking controversy.
Early in the week, the guys at In Contention broke down the Lead Actress race, weighing the pros and cons of each actress’s shot at Oscar glory. We later got Gerard Kennedy’s first look at the contenders for Cinematography.
Oliver Lyttelton at The Playlist also deals with pros and cons, however, his gaze is set on Skyfall.
