Could Willem Dafoe be in the running to win an Oscar for “The Florida Project”?

10 hours ago

Earlier this week, we got a Trailer for a rather small independent movie that could make a pretty big splash during the awards season. This probably won’t shock you, but it’s also an A24 release. The flick in question is The Florida Project, which has been building some steady buzz since the Cannes Film Festival, especially for Willem Dafoe. Long considered by some to be overdue for a statue, Dafoe has received career best notices for his turn here. If he’s truly as good as advertised, he could help drive this movie right through the precursors. Watch out for this one folks. The film is a look at growing up in poverty.

This week marks the official return to cinemas of Steven Soderbergh. Even though he never stopped working, it’s been a few years since he’s been in the film business, opting more for television in the interim. Well, that’s no longer the case. He has a movie hitting screens in a few days, the heist comedy Logan Lucky. This ensemble adventure is a real good time, marking something both rather similar and also a little different for the director. It’s essentially the perfect return for him. Beyond that, it’s just quality cinema. I’ll give you a little on it next, but after that, we’ll run down his filmography to date. Read on… In case you missed it last time, a bit on Logan Lucky.
