BYOB – Sherlock Holmes

What do you think of the film? Here’s a place to air it out…
(And I am personally curious… since it didn’t really strike me strongly, but it has been mentioned in many reviews, including the NYT… is there a heavy gay subtext in this film?)

BYOB Monday

Morning…
New York Film Critics Circle is meeting as I type. News will be up on MCN as it breaks, around 10a.
We’re getting down to the nitty gritty. BFCA announced overnight. The Globes announce tomorrow. (Our Awards Scoreboard just went up.)
And then, it becomes Avatar Week… for real.

“I really want to see The Irishman. I’ve heard it’s big brother Martin Scorsese’s masterpiece. But I really can’t find the time. The promotion schedule is so tight, there’s no opportunity to see a three and a half-hour movie. But I really want to see it. In 2017, right before Okja’s New York premiere, I had the chance to go to Scorsese’s office, which is in the DGA building. There’s a lovely screening room there, too, with film prints that he’s collected. I talked to him for about an hour. There’s no movie he hasn’t seen, even Korean films. We talked about what he’s seen and his past work. It was a glorious day. I’ve loved his work since I was in college. Who doesn’t? Anyone involved with movies must feel the same way.”
~ Bong Joon-ho

“But okay, I promise you now that if I ever retire again, I’m going to ensure that I can’t walk it back. I’ll post a series of the most disgusting, offensive, outrageous statements you can ever imagine. That way it will be impossible for me to ever be employed again. No one is going to take my calls. No one is going to want to be seen with me. Oh, it will be scorched earth. I will have torched everything. I’m going to flame out in the most legendary fashion.”
~ Steven Soderbergh
