The prioritization is due to the fact that I nearly laugh myself into incontinence every time I view a clip from it. It's already a cult classic and hasn't even been released. I'm almost counting the hours.
I'm loooking forward to seeing this. I still have a hard time seeing Nicole Kidman as Diane Arbus. She seems not quite right... too tall, perhaps?
I don't know... Natalie Portman, maybe?
Thanks for the link, Dorothy!
I'll definitely see it. I saw the trailer a month or so back. While it may not be much in the way of an actual biography, I enjoyed the look of reverence on Nicole Kidman's face while she slowly unwraps a Rollei.
And the Rollei gets a close up! Gotta love that. :p

I will definitely have a hard time with Nicole Kidman as Diane Arbus. she's too ....hmm.... 'cute'. I agree, the cameras will be the best bit. :)
Although the film is supposedly based on Bosworth's bio, Shainberg apparently added quite a bit himself -- his "father and uncle had known Arbus through her lover Marvin Israel." The article/interview goes on to say the "movie is mostly fiction" focusing on an "invented relationship" and "tries to imagine the artistic transformation" Arbus underwent "during three months in 1958."
Still, I intend to see it.
I'll be curious to see what others think after seeing the film (myself included).
I figure...it might be the way I view an image by Arbus. Always wondering 'what next' or where things lead. Such as the famous image of the twin girls:
Kinda neat seeing them now.
And what about her judgement... Tom Cruise and then a guy who has to go into major rehab a few months after here comes the bride....:)
