Interview: David O. Russell Talks Incest and Music in ‘The Fighter,’ Plus ‘Uncharted’ And Other Projects From The Past
Posted on Sunday, February 20th, 2011 by David Chen
As I mentioned yesterday, I recently had the opportunity to speak with David O. Russell, who directed The Fighter, which was my favorite film of 2010. We chatted about a variety of topics, including themes of incest in his work, his musical choices, plus some of the other projects he’s worked on in the past and will be working on in the future. Thanks to everyone who submitted awesome questions for this live Q&A!
Russell seemed like an incredibly cool dude, who’s had somewhat of a rough time of it in Hollywood until recently. I wish him the best on his next projects. Below is the audio of our conversation. Hit the jump for the full transcript, which has been edited for clarity.

I had the privilege to speak with director David O. Russell last week (Thanks to everyone who submitted questions!). The full audio and transcript of that interview will be up in the next day or two, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share some of David O. Russell’s thoughts on the internet’s response to the fact that he’s directing Uncharted.
I think /Film commenter Jag put it best when he suggested the following question for Russell: “How does it feel to be an academy award nominated and a critically acclaimed director, [who] has to see a bunch of video-game fans (who’ve never made a movie) bitch about ruining Uncharted before he’s even finished the script?” Hit the jump to find out what Russell had to say. [Note that the following excerpts have been slightly edited for clarity.]

The nominees for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards have been announced. As expected, big players include The Social Network and The King’s Speech, but there are very strong showings for The Kids Are All Right, The Fighter and True Grit. The Best Picture nominees are: Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The Kids Are All Right, The King’s Speech, 127 Hours, The Social Network, Toy Story 3, True Grit, and Winter’s Bone. If you’re going by the numbers, The King’s Speech is strong with 12, followed by a wonderful 10 for True Grit and then 8 for both The Social Network and Inception, with the latter scoring on technical nominations.
The full list of nominees is after the break. Read More »

As the year comes to an end, anybody and everybody are posting their best of the year lists. Most of these lists contain variations of the same 15 or 20 films. To break the mold, some are even posting lists of the best films of the year that you probably haven’t seen. I find that even these lists are filled with the same movies. And if you’re a film geek reading a site like /Film, chances are you know about most of the movies on these lists.
I wanted to do something different and compile a list of the best films of the year that you’ve never heard of. The selections should be movies that (for the most part) none of your family or friends have heard of, and you might even have to do some extra legwork to get your hands on.

The last big indicator of how the Oscar nominations are likely to shake out is the nomination set for the Director’s Guild of America’s award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement. The DGA and Best Director Oscar awards often line up directly (there have been only six deviations since the DGA awards began in 1948) and before the Best Picture Oscar set was widened to ten films, the DGA nominations were a very good indicator of how that race would go, as well.
