    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:

    Trip with George

    It looks like Matt may be visiting Lake Como with George. A photo from the airport in Lugano, which is apparently closest to Lake Como.


    An article about Matt and George leaving their hotel base:


    Harz-break for the stars; Clooney and Damon make the departure
    Lautenthal. Where did George Clooney go? The Brown camp photographer Marzena Makowska observed on Thursday, there is still a drop off during filming on the set Kranichberg six vehicles and drove to Magdeburg Cochstedt. There was already waiting on a private jet Clooney and Matt Damon.

    New Soderbergh interview at the Financial Times


    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.’”

When it comes to gambling on sports, millions of people will put money down on [url=http://www.sanantoniospursteamshop.com/tony-parker-jersey/]Tony Parker Jersey[/url] every match up. 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.
