The Watermelon Man: A (Brief) Review Of BEHIND THE CANDELABRA Comments (18)

Behindthecandelabra06jpg-55d34dec0486b71eBehind the Candelabra was, more or less, a standard biopic...of Scott Thorson.

Matt-damon-goes-shirtless-in-candelabra-02BOY CULTURE REVIEW: **1/2 out of ****

My (quick)  take on Behind the Candelabra: Debbie Reynolds, Dan Aykroyd, Cheyenne Jackson, Scott Bakula and Rob Lowe are delicious; Matt Damon has incredible, Emmy-worthy depth and makes it all worthwhile; Michael Douglas is two-dimensional and miscast; the entire movie is more in the vein of Magic Mike (which was great fun, but I was expecting more from a biopic) than [fill in any other Soderbergh movie]; and it's ludicrous to call it a "love story." The genre is more closely horror. What a completely unhealthy relationship...from, "Hi, nice to meet you!" to alleged deathbed farewell. It definitely held my interest, it just wasn't shaded. Bad wigs.

CandelabraBest supporting cast since Murder on the Orient Express!

Straight Ally Matt Damon On Playing Gay Boy-Toy Scott Thorson Comments (4)

Gay-Matt-Damon-Scott ThorsonGreat Scott

Matt Damon speaks extensively about his upcoming role as Scott Thorson, Liberace's lover (Liberace played by Michael Douglas). in the upcoming HBO film Behind the Candelabra in a fascinating Playboy interview. He apparently did lots of nudity and lots of kisses (Douglas gets an A+).

Speaking about how he views the relationship between Thorson and Liberace, he says:

"These two men were deeply in love and in a real relationship—a marriage—long before there was gay marriage. That’s not an insignificant thing. The script is beautiful and relatable. Their conversations when they’re dressing or undressing or having a spat or getting ready for bed? That’s every marriage. It feels like you’re witnessing something really intimate you would normally see with a man and a woman, but instead it’s two men, which was thrilling. There’s stuff I think will make people uncomfortable. Great. It’s HBO—they can change the channel."

As for gay rumors that have popped up regarding his tight friendship with Ben Affleck, Damon says:

"I never denied those rumors because I was offended and didn’t want to offend my friends who were gay—as if being gay were some kind of fucking disease. It put me in a weird position in that sense. The whole thing was just gross. But look, there have been great signs of progress—the fact that Anderson Cooper and Ellen DeGeneres can come out so beautifully and powerfully, and it’s a big fucking deal that it turns out nobody gives a shit. If Liberace were alive today, everybody would love his music and nobody would care what he did in his private life. Like with Elton John."

It's a great interview, packed with little nuggets of info like the fact that Damon once discussed doing Brokeback Mountain with Joaquin Phoenix.

Michael Douglas as Liberace
From here: I will be first in line to see the Liberace biopic, but I can't get past the casting if this is how Michael Douglas looks. Is he playing Liberace or Joe Pesci? I'm glad my brother George isn't here.

Many Of The Snubbed Won't Have To "Act" Surprised... Comments (8)

[UNSET]Academy voters to viewership: "Kiss our ass!"

This is not about merit. Or rather, this is never only about merit, so don't take my observations as endorsements or write-offs.

Oscarboring1 The producers of this year's Oscars telecast may have gone way populist, hiring attractive young stars James Franco and Anne Hathaway as co-hosts, but the Academy voters have gone the opposite route, shunning a surprisingly large number of glamorous stars who actually merited consideration.

Full list of Oscar nominations is here.

It struck me immediately as I listened to the nominees being announced this morning, the unfun lack of household names except in cases where the performance was beyond locked (Natalie Portman, Annette Bening).

PolishingOscar Off the top of my head, major surprise snubs include (in descending order of WTF?): Andrew Garfield for The Social Network (he was the heart of that movie, has acting cred from Boy A and is the next Spider-Man), Ryan Gosling for Blue Valentine (a well-liked, extremely respected actor whose counterpart was honored), Mila Kunis for The Black Swan (she may be a newcomer to critical acclaim but she played two completely different roles, one of which was arguably the title character), Matt Damon for True Grit (an old favorite in one of the year's hardest-charging contenders to steal The Social Network's thunder), Mark Wahlberg for The Fighter (not considered a great thespian but he was responsible for the film existing and was the title character), Julianne Moore for The Kids Are All Right (she's been nominated and overlooked before, but this time was really exceptional).
