Marie Antoinette Trailer…

looks utterly ridiculous. How can you not laugh at Jason Schwartzman as a French fop? Not to mention perky cheerleader Kirsten Dunst as a fucking French queen. Ridiculous. Let’s hope it’s meant to be funny.

    something tells me that sofia coppola needs to have her financial backing severely curbed. i feel the same with matthew barney. i saw “drawing restraint 9” last night. yeah. um. can museums stop giving this guy grants? a guy like theo jansen from the netherlands…now HE’S an artist. interesting, original, generous. barney, on the other hand, is like the characters of “art school confidential.” he is anything but profound. plus, i hate to say it, but after that movie, i feel like banning sigur ros and bjork for their contributions. anyhow…i love the new order song in the “marie” trailer. if only jason schwartzman weren’t so damned goofy in that get-up. cynthia, do you think that the movie will open up on kirsten dunst’s butt? except she’ll be wearing some unsightly, 17th-century granny-panties? one can only guess…

    oh, and it’s still disconcerning that dear, dear sofia is the one who (from a media’s standpoint) gets crowned the “WOMAN DIRECTOR darling” who’s getting more attention than other accomplished filmmakers – regardless of gender. had a man or any other no-name woman directed “lost in translation,” i doubt it would have got any attention. and if it did, it would have been because of bill murray. because he is a god (not THE god) and i think he’s the only reason why parts of that movie work. uh-oh, i won’t get you started on that flick again. nope. i’ll shut-up now. for your sake!

    at least she has the period music right. new order were the synth-pop darlings of 18th century versailles.

    ok i just read the story of marie antoinette over at wikipedia and now i think maybe the casting is not so ridiculous…she was 14 and louis XIV just 15 when they got married, and when his father died and he became king he and marie apparently were scared shitless about ruling. i can see those two actors possibly bringing that aspect to life pretty well. but who knows what part of the story she’ll be telling.

    and david if a man had directed lost in translation i would have thought it was a totally sexist piece of shit. which is why it so confuses and infuriates and intrigues me. and that trailer already has a shot of kirsten dunst’s ass…or at least a body double’s…

    I am not familiar with any of the actors, and I thought the film was visually stunning.
