São aquelas categorias mais técnicas.

A Motion Pictures Editors Guild selecionou por votação os filmes que considera terem a melhor montagem imagem e som de sempre. A lista está aqui. Por seu lado, a American Society of Cinematographers, separou em três grupos, o que considerou os filmes com melhor trabalho do diretor de fotografia de sempre. A separação foi feita em 1894-1949, 1950-1997 e 1998-2008. Percebo que os materiais com que se trabalha, a cor, o digital, tenham mudado muito o trabalho de fotografia mas não tenho a certeza se não fazia igualmente sentido para a montagem.

Destaco algumas das coincidências entre as listagens, isto é, filmes com excelente fotografia e montagem.


SLR from Stephen Fingleton on Vimeo. SLR is a short thriller about a man obsessed with "voyeur pornography". When he makes a shocking discovery online, he is forced onto the trail of an anonymous photographer known only by his user name of ANORAK.

In the tradition of BLOW-UP, THE CONVERSATION and HARD CORE, SLR puts a morally compromised man through the meat grinder of his own behaviour. The film was one of 16 shorts made through the BFI Shorts/ Lighthouse scheme, and stars noted Irish character actors LIAM CUNNINGHAM and RICHARD DORMER, both of whom are stars of GAME OF THRONES. It was nominated for an IFTA and won Best Irish Short at the Academy-recognised Foyle Film Festival. SLR is being put online in conjunction with a companion film called SELFIE - see here You can follow SLR's progress at and read an interview with the filmmaker at . The soundtrack is also available to buy on bandcamp:

Hoje à noite há estrelas.

Marilyn Monroe arrived in England, at London Airport (now Heathrow) at 10.40am on 14 July 1956. The newlyweds were travelling with 27 pieces of luggage, which costs them $1,500 in excess baggage fees. That is over $12,600 in 2012. The newsclip also shows Marilyn meeting Queen Elizabeth, who was also born in 1926.

Gustavo Santaolalla.

A minha banda sonora favorita do ano passado não está nem pode estar nomeada para os Óscares porque é a banda sonora de um jogo e não de um filme. O autor é Gustavo Santaolalla e o jogo é The Last Of Us e não podia concordar mais com a Empire quando diz...

The Last Of Us is not a film, but if it were a film, it's a safe bet it would have appeared in more than a few of Team Empire's Top 10 lists. On the surface, it's an action-adventure survival horror game about zombies, fungal spores and the unlikely duo of a jaded 40-odd-year-old apocalypse survivor called Joel and a 14-year-old orphan called Ellie. Dig a little deeper and it's one of the most emotionally-affecting stories of the year, an intensely cinematic tale of fear, survival and friendship.

Está um vídeo sobre esta banda sonora aqui abaixo. Diga-se que Santaolalla podia ter sido nomeado pela banda sonora do brilhante August: Osage County, um daqueles filmes que é muito mais do que o trailer deixa antever. Não foi. Mas também já ganhou lá a estatueta por causa do Brokeback Mountain e do Babel, por isso é deixá-lo estar. E ouvir a música dele.
