It has been a great day. What began as a lukewarm reception has become one of the festival's biggest surprises ... and the praises of Natalie's performance are overwhelming :)

Today there have been spectacular photos, but this is ... wow

Vanity Fair Interview with Natalie and Brady Corbet:

https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/20 ... -interview

... it contains a little reference to her second film as director:

What can you tell us about your next project, which is about the relationship between Dear Abby and Ann Landers?

Portman: It’s very, very early. We’re still working on the script, and I think it’s going to be a while. I’m really interested in how you can become your own worst enemy, and how identical twins [are] kind of a personification of fighting yourself.

It almost fell apart financially. They called me when I was at the airport as I was leaving to travel to New York and told me ‘we can’t make the film because we’ve lost the financing,'” said Portman, who said she decided to “stick with the project” no matter what.


It all worked out eventually and the delay allowed me to let it sit, take the time to get into the character,” said Portman, who added that she shot her part in only 10 days

Hopefully the good reviews continue! I'm worried her performance will be too actressy for some.

Does anyone think this will find a distributor. It seems like the film has lost steam since Venice.

I begin to think that it will be difficult. The second round of reactions on Twitter yesterday in the press screening was quite lukewarm. Almost everyone praises Natalie’s perfomance, but I think the film is going to be too weird, not only for the members of the Academy, but for the general audiences. I do not think a distributor is going to spend money on a campaign where Natalie is just the only hook. This article summarizes all this very well:

https://www.indiewire.com/2018/09/natal ... 202001890/

It’s heady, challenging material — and not an easy sell. “Vox Lux” is one of the few major TIFF titles to arrive at the festival (after its Venice premiere) without North American distribution, and whoever picks it up will face a unique marketing challenge with Portman’s dyspeptic character. Major buyers attended the premiere, but largely agreed that Portman’s name brought the movie its sole commercial hook.



Earlier this year, she starred in “Annihilation,” Alex Garland’s heady sci-fi thriller that put her at the center of a cryptic story where her motives were unclear throughout. The movie also faced tough commercial prospects: Paramount dumped the movie in theaters and sold international rights to Netflix. Portman shrugged off the potential risks of the two projects she’s tackled this year. “As an actor, you just start trying to help fulfill the director’s vision and really just try bringing everything you can creatively,” she said. “The rest is up to the business people. The most interesting thing for me is working with people who I feel push me creatively and intellectually, have great ideas, create a lot of freedom and the circumstances that you can really explore creatively.”
