Venice lineup is mildly disappointing but for whatever it is worth it is a better (American) lineup than any Venice prior to 2016. I think it makes sense to hold things back from international fests given uncertainty, which is why I think Telluride and NYFF are gonna be bigger than ever. Also, I just simply think that stuff like Nightmare Alley and House of Gucci and the David Russell aren't ready yet. 

 

Not stunned about Blonde getting rejected but what is the other? It can't be Macbeth, can it?

Blonde was rejected.

 

I don’t know if Macbeth was (or even submitted) personally 

It was Macbeth. Another insider had already said a while ago that Macbeth was rejected by a major film fest (but people ignored it because that dude is a massive piece of shit, like Sasha Stone) and now the insider who shared this, Cedric Succivali, is saying it was Venice. The festival programmers just didn't like it supposedly.

I have my doubts about the Macbeth thing. I know the guy is apparently reliable, until this happened, the buzz had been that it was screening and getting absolute raves - we had more positive word on this than any other contender. I just cannot imagine a Coen brother fucking up a Macbeth adaptation starring Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand. It's like impossible to fuck up.

 

Power of the Dog is confirmed for Telluride and Toronto now, so it is clearly this year's Marriage Story/Nomadland "we are uber confident and going to hit every festival" contender. I have Cumberbatch behind Smith and Denzel but ahead of Leo, Cooper, and others based on the role.

So with the new TIFF lineup, I know Power of the Dog is supposed to be a possible contender, but is there anything else we're reportedly supposed to keep an eye out for?

the Worst Person in the World, Mothering Sunday, and The Humans I guess. You should especially keep an eye The Worst Person in the World since it has a good chance of being this year's foreign language breakout. Inu-Oh too for the animation category (although Belle is probably a bigger priority for GKids).

Really surprised they aren't sending A Hero to Toronto.

 

The Humans is a great play and several of the acting performances could be real contenders if the movie isn't too small. (Mass is already having the same problem with being so small in such a loaded year).

I think it’s just a very specific Shakespeare adaptation that won’t exactly be for everyone, general audiences will hate it for example
