Swift directed the video herself, in which she stars under extensive makeup as the title character, who takes advantage of his male privilege by man-spreading on the subway, berating his employees, throwing a tantrum at a tennis referee, and partying with sexy women on a yacht (the actor voicing the Man at the end there is actually Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson). “I’m so sick of running as fast I can / Wondering if I’d get there quicker / If I was a man,

Martin Scorsese Teases DiCaprio-De Niro Crime Film ‘Flower Moon’ as His First Western

Martin Scorsese Teases DiCaprio-De Niro Crime Film ‘Flower Moon’ as His First Western
Martin Scorsese’s frequent cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto said last December the tone of their next collaboration together, “Killers of the Flower Moon,” was still being worked out. Now comes word from Scorsese himself that the tone has been set and the project, based on David Grann’s historical book of the same name, will be the director’s first Western. “Killers of the Flower Moon” is Scorsese’s follow-up to “The Irishman,” which nabbed 10 Academy Award nominations this year. The project is set to star longtime Scorsese muses Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.

“We think it’s a Western,” Scorsese tells Premiere of the film. “It happened in 1921-1922 in Oklahoma. There are certainly cowboys, but they have cars and also horses. The film is mainly about the Osage, an Indian tribe that was given horrible territory, which they loved because they said to themselves that Whites would never be interested in it.

Killers of the Flower Moon Will Be Martin Scorsese’s First Western

Killers of the Flower Moon Will Be Martin Scorsese’s First Western
As the uninformed dimwits of Twitter argue that Martin Scorsese ever only makes one kind of movie and expose themselves as having seen but a small portion of the director’s vast oeuvre, the next film will offer further evidence of his great range. In his 50-plus year career, the director has paid homage to a number of westerns, from Rio Bravo to The Great Train Robbery to Shane to The Searchers, but he has yet to make one himself. However, he’s now entering the genre with Killers of the Flower Moon.

“We think it’s a western,” he tells Cahiers du Cinéma via Premiere. “It happened in 1921-1922 in Oklahoma. They are certainly cowboys, but they have cars and also horses. The film is mainly about the Osage, an Indian tribe that was given horrible territory, which they loved because they said to themselves that Whites would never be interested in it.

Oscars 2020: Though It Lost Best Picture, ‘1917’ Dominated the Crafts Awards
Though it lost Best Picture, “1917,” Sam Mendes’ single-shot, World War I extravaganza, was rewarded with the most crafts Oscars Sunday night. For its technical virtuosity it received three awards, powered by cinematographer Roger Deakins’ second win for his brilliant camera choreography.

Deakins was joined by the sound mixing team of Mark Taylor and Stuart Wilson for their intricate soundscape as part of the continuous-shot narrative, and, surprisingly, Mpc Film (the dark horse winner) for VFX. Ironically, though, Mpc’s win overshadowed its own innovative virtual production and photoreal animation on Jon Favreau’s “The Lion King.” Yet this supporting visual effects work played an integral role in making stitches invisible and creating CG environments (including No Man’s Land and the burning village of Écoust).

Meanwhile, Pixar won its 10th animated feature Oscar for “Toy Story 4,” and “Hair Love,” the black father-daughter bonding work, took home the animated short Oscar.
