    Good Review

    After reading the review, I am anxious to see the movie. It sounds like the movie all came together with the actors and the director.

    Re: Good Review

    Lots of people have seen the film by now through HBO screeners or early release showings and all but two I have seen are very positive.

    New footage!!!!!

    I suppose this is the official trailer for Cannes(?). Fantastic new footage! They have definitely been holding back in order to increase the impact of the film in the states. It looks spectacular, Matt looks amazing - incredibly young and utterly believable as this callow young man - and to judge by this footage, Matt is the primary character.
    Wow! Check it out!

    Re: New footage!!!!!

    That was awesome. Thanks Paula.

    I'm expecting comparisons between BTC and The Great Gatsby at Cannes. They should be premiering within a few days and the Variety review of Gatsby mentioned Liberace, excesses, glitz, over the top design etc. BTC may have done it better on a very different scale.

    The early review of BTC has been removed.

    A good tumblr post on the fashion on display in the trailer:

    New Soderbergh interview at the Financial Times

    http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/cbc28d0c-b840-11e2-bd62-00144feabdc0.html#axzz2Str6A2IC

    The film explores the tempestuous relationship between Liberace and Thorson, which starts after a chance meeting: Thorson’s blond tresses, physique and rather tight 1970s jeans catch the older man’s eye. Damon and Douglas both deliver terrific performances, Douglas camp and slightly creepy in a succession of outrageous outfits; Damon, the doe-eyed innocent driven close to madness by a cocktail of drugs and Liberace’s philandering.

    Soderbergh then approached Damon. “I knew enough about Matt to know that he’s not the kind of person who has to protect anything [or] that he has an image to uphold. He wants to be challenged. He wants to push himself as an actor.” Once on board, the two actors threw themselves into their roles. “They just grabbed hands and jumped off the cliff. At no point did I ask for something and get any hesitation or ‘Really?’ They knew there was no way to do this except both feet in. The core of the story is the emotional intimacy that they share … it has to be completely equal or it doesn’t work.”

    Times have changed, though: it was not long ago that actors of Douglas’s and Damon’s standing would have not considered a gay role. “Michael realised that Matt was the age he was when he did Fatal Attraction. He said: ‘I would never have gone anywhere near this part [at his age]. It would have been too terrifying.’”

While experts will have a good average of wins and losses, the average fan will not be so lucky. In fact, each year many fans end up losing big with what they believe are the best picks for the games. The problem is that they never invested any time in learning how to find the best basketball picks before the season. By the time they figure out the way the NBA is leaning, they are out of money and have to just sit back and watch things unfold. If you want to make things different this year, then consider a few insider tips that will show you how to make money with bets squarely aimed at this year’s basketball season.

    Michael Jordan Jersey

    Always appoint a team captain [url=http://www.nbamiamiheatteamshop.com/ray-allen-jersey/]Ray Allen Jersey[/url] and follow his orders no matter what. This is the key. The team captain does not have to be the most experienced or the wildest or the most intelligent, but there has to be one captain. Follow orders even if you think you have a better plan. Don't go for self glory. I remember one time a young 9 year [url=http://www.nbamiamiheatteamshop.com/lebron-james-jersey/]LeBron James Womens Jersey[/url] old played with us. The team captain told him to hide behind some tires and stay there forever until it got really bad or we won. It got really bad, our whole team was eliminated except for him. The other team had no clue about him and 3 of them came marching in to take the flag when he slowly jumped out and killed all of them. Obey your captain even if it does not conform to your method of play. Living here has made me feel guilty for my own country that it is riddled with stress, and that stress relief is such big business. The stress back home in England was unnecessary, and born out of greed, materialism, and a complete focus on self. I am grateful to the Filipinos for helping me to put that into perspective. "I have struggled with these feelings many times," he continued. "It is as if there are two wolves inside me: One is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him and doesn't take offense when no offense was intended. He will fight only when it is right to do so and in the right way. But the other wolf, ah! He is full of anger. The smallest thing will set him into a [url=http://www.nbamiamiheatteamshop.com/alonzo-mourning-jersey/]Alonzo Mourning Jersey[/url] fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit."
