10 The Deer Hunter
Most now associate Michael Cimino’s film with Christopher Walken pressing a gun to his temple, but it’s the Russian wedding dance, not the Russian roulette, that impresses most. That said, Walken shimmying to Can’t Take My Eyes Off You with a pool cue for a dance partner comes a close second.
Among the other guests were directors Darren Aronofsky, Barry Levinson, Thomas Vinterberg, Susanne Bier, Michel Hazanavicius, Hugh Hudson and Tim Pope, composer Alexandre Desplat, Cannes festival director Thierry Fremaux, author Stephen Apkon, and actresses Lea Seydoux, Rossy De Palma and Fanny Ardant. The event was founded by actor Vincent Perez.
R7al screened 40 films as well as staging a multitude of discussions during which filmmakers could talk about their work.
At a screening of “The Deer Hunter,” Walken explained that two weeks before filming started director Michael Cimino brought together the principal actors at the film’s first location, Cleveland, Ohio, to get to know each other. “We spent at least 10 days together.
Inside Farmshop, an overcrowded, overloud Santa Monica, California, artisanal-type-food joint, the 20-year-old Bill Hader is giving the 39-year-old Bill Hader a pretty good goddamn dressing down. "Fucking loser," the younger spits at one point. But does grown-up Bill take umbrage? Does he rail at his interior monologue, trying to scare it back into the depths of his psyche? He does not. Sitting there – regular jeans, dark blue sweater, very California casual, fork in hand, knife bearing down on steak – he just laughs, shakes his head, arches his grand Hader eyebrows,
Completed a decade after French director Luc Jacquet’s original paean to the arctic birds made $127 million at the box office and won a best documentary Oscar, this sort-of sequel provides a refurbished, high-resolution dose of the same natural wonders found in the initial installment: the perilous routine of courtship, breeding, and long-distance treks for food in the extreme conditions of Antarctica, by animals that know nothing else.

Jacquet’s franchise has had multiple lives. The
Film archives in other cities, like Lyon and Bologna, had helped set up movie events that worked in tandem with the institutions’ core responsibilities, such as film restoration, encouraging public debate about cinematic heritage and promoting academic research. Now the Cinémathèque Suisse – which is one of the world’s top 10 archives with 85,000 title — had the opportunity to do the same in Lausanne, whose lake-side location and historic architecture provides a stunningly beautiful backdrop.
The event, called r7al (it stands for Rencontres 7e Art Lausanne) and running from March 24-28, is devoted to classic and cult movies. Perez tells Variety: “Our objective is

The 90th annual ceremony will be live on ABC at 8:00 p.m.
Stone is also set to present but, in a break with tradition, she won’t be handing out Best Actor at the 90th Academy Awards. That honor goes to two veteran Oscar winners, Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren. Two others past Best Actress winners, Jodie Foster and Jennifer Lawrence have been tapped to present that prize this year (last year’s winner of Best Actor, Casey Affleck, would have traditionally done that but he bowed out of appearing in the wake of the #MeToo movement). However, last year’s supporting winners
Those two Oscar winners have been invited back for a do-over. They will be presenting Best Picture again, which we are predicting will go to Martin McDonagh‘s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Our exclusive odds — which are based on Oscar predictions by 30 expert journalists, our in-house team of 7 editors and thousands of readers — also forecast that the film’s star, Frances McDormand, will win a second Oscar for her searing performance
That isn’t the only change, as Emma Stone shan’t be presenting Best Actor; she’ll be replaced by Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren. All four new presenters are Oscar winners themselves: Lawrence for “Silver Linings Playbook,” Foster for “The Accused” and “The Silence of the Lambs,” Fonda for “Coming Home,” and Mirren for “The Queen.”
The ceremony takes place tomorrow night. Here’s the full list of announced presenters:
Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster will announce the lead actress prize winner Sunday night, while Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren will present lead actor. Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) and Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”) are considered the frontrunners to win.
Traditionally, the previous year’s acting winners present the same categories for the opposite gender at the Oscars. But in January, it was revealed that last year’s lead actor winner Casey Affleck (“Manchester by the Sea”) had withdrawn as a presenter from this year’s ceremony, reportedly to avoid becoming a distraction due to two sexual
