Oscar Foreign Language Films Tap Into the Zeitgeist

Once upon a time, the quintessential foreign-language film submission was a sweeping epic or something to do with WWII. No longer.

The NBA legend spoke out about his secret lessons when Jimmy asked him if he had any celebrity friends who might surprise his fans: “Surprised? I don’t know. Maybe not surprised, but, you know, recently, I’ve been spending a lot of time with Debbie Allen,” Kobe said, referring to his famous dance teacher. “Well, it was kept secret for obvious reasons,” Kobe continued, adding that he had to get customized size-14 tap shoes. “I had to get them made. I can’t go to a store and be like, ‘Yeah, I’ll take those size 14s. Tap.’” “[At one point,] I could, like, tell my feet to do this, and they would actually do that,” Kobe added. “I walked into the studio, and it’s all these, like, 6-year-olds … and these kids are looking up at me like, what in the world? What’s this grown-ass man doing in here learning tap dance?” Jimmy Kimmel Thinks Kobe Bryant is a Lunatic Click inside to watch the rest of Kobe Bryant’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live… Kobe Bryant on LeBron, Lakers & Coaching His Daughter Kobe Bryant on the Mamba Mentality Kobe Bryant on Teaching His Daughter to Drive.....»»

Blind Item: “Suicided” Actor Killed By Other Actors Who Raped Foreign Teens

"There have been a lot of suspicious suicides of celebrities as of late, but there was a first that started this whole thing over a decade ago. A film was being made overseas and several of the actors in this movie that was supposed to be a big box office hit took advantage of their position as stars with the local female population and also threw around enough cash to the local police where nothing was said or done about their activities. One of the worst offenders was an A list mostly movie actor at the time. Foreign-born and was really kicking it into gear. There was another A+ lister on the movie and a future A- list mostly television actor. They went after every female teen in the town where they were filming. They didn't care how old, and whether it was completely voluntary." The post Blind Item: “Suicided” Actor Killed By Other Actors Who Raped Foreign Teens appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   Summing up a Blind Item in a headline might not be my calling. Anyway, today’s Blind Item whisks us away to a foreign filming location where actors were having sex with sometimes unwilling underage girls. They could have just stayed in Hollywood for that, but, wanderlust strikes everyone. Even rapists. For some reason I really wanted Tropic Thunder to work, and after spending quite a bit of company time Googling the flick’s actors, I can say that it does not. Most people are saying Jonathan Brandis from Hart’s War, but others are trying to rope David Carradine into this. I’ll be here all night. Check out the Blind Item and head to the comments to take a stab.   ______________________ There have been a lot of suspicious suicides of celebrities as of late, but there was a first that started this whole thing over a decade ago.

They didn’t care how old, and whether it was completely voluntary. One actor who didn’t participate was at the time probably B/B- list and fading. Because he didn’t participate, everyone shunned him. They made sure he knew how things worked and basically ruined what was left of his career. Down the road, when he couldn’t get a break, he threatened to expose what went on and he suddenly “suicided” himself.

Directed by Force Majeure filmmaker Ruben Östlund, The Square won Cannes’ coveted Palme D’Or and Oscar wise  it’s been selected as Sweden’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film. The narrative centers on a respected art museum curator named Christian (Claes Bang) whose next show is “The Square,” an installation which invites art enthusiasts to have a bit of compassion for their fellow human beings. When Christian’s own humanity is tested and the museum stages a controversial public relations campaign for “The Square,” all hell respectively breaks loose. We have no idea how Elisabeth Moss’ character will react to “The Square,” but we do know how she reacts to her fans: The Square, co-starring Dominic West and Terry Notary, opens in theaters October 27.
