Re: Downsizing Payne interview

Downsizing made the National Board of Review's Top Ten Films of the year list (and critics such as Kris Tapley aren't impressed):

That was a good interview in Esquire, and a lovely quote about the extras.

NBR LOVES Alexander Payne.
It is known.

Re: Downsizing Payne interview

Really! Is this the justification that Downsizing is in that list?

Re: Downsizing Payne interview

Who are you? Did you even watch the movie to know if it's not that good to be in the list? Did you watch the other movies to know if they are good or bad? This is nonsense.

Re: Downsizing Payne interview

Yes. And it throws a bone to Paramount.

RE: Re: Downsizing Payne interview

That's an interesting Top Ten! So happy to see Patty Jenkins honored & a lot of people will be glad Logan made the list.

Re: Downsizing Payne interview

There's nothing in that article, nor Tapley's tweets about Downsizing shows that he isn't impressed. I dunno what are you trying to do here?

Re: Downsizing Payne interview

Huh? This was the tweet:

Everybody has dismissed the film as a contender. There is not general agreement that it deserves to be on a 10 best end of year list, but the nomination makes Paramount buy a seat at the table to the event. Invictus got the same treatment a few years ago. The NBR group and nominations are usually seen as a joke.

Re: Downsizing Payne interview

I think all awards shows outside of a few are a joke. The writer's guild, SAG, director's guild mean something to me. the others are there for celebrity events and ratings for networks.
The film received two vastly different receptions in Venice and stateside. I want to see the film but the outspoken critics who hate it want it to crash and burn. I think their aversion to this film has more to do with the star than anything else.

Re: Downsizing Payne interview

Maybe he was only shocked.
And actually not everybody dismissed the film as a contender.
