The Lawsuits Thread

Wow, just wow. Thank you guys. I have done nothing in terms of researching all of it, and I really extend my deepest respect and appreciation for the work all of you have done. No doubt your persistence and dedication has aided the fandom and our Mr. Depp. :bouquet: And I haven't even watched the ne...

WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS--Updates, Reviews and Discussion

I liked the movie. Here's the WSJ review that indicates it's shareable but I must not be entering the link correctly. Ruby Begonia! Thank you SO MUCH for posting the Wall Street Journal review. I am not a subscriber and the Journal just wasn't interested in me reading the review without paying for ...

WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS--Updates, Reviews and Discussion

This is my favorite review thus far, and written by a woman! The writer really understands Coetzee's intent in writing the book, and in crafting a mythic world with mythical characters. Think of Greek myths and how the characters are intentionally not fully human. They are not meant to be because if...

WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS--Updates, Reviews and Discussion

Too busy to watch this weekend. I am ordering from Amazon Prime, I believe it's also $5.99. I always wait to watch stuff, that tantalizing time when what you may see, experience, hear waits for you.

It is fairly easy to read at Bye Bye Blackbird on Tumblr. That's where I read it. Tried to copy, but unsuccessful.

The Lawsuits Thread

Please excuse me if I am asking for something that has already been posted. Online, on Tumblr I read a copy of Jennifer Howell's declaration to the Circuit Court of Virginia. Really quite stunning document. Is this something that has already been posted on this thread?

Re: WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS--Updates, Reviews and Discussion

Yesterday I provided links to several reviews of Waiting for the Barbarians. I was able to quickly collect these because Stephen Deuters kindly collected all reviews on his twitter feed. Rather than just have the links, which do expire, I have gone back and copied the text. Thus, one can read review...

Re: WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS--Updates, Reviews and Discussion

I guess it works just as well to copy and post entire articles. I will go back and do that, to give the widest possible view of how this film was and is being judged. The reviews come from Stephen Deuters twitter feed. Please note that he is posting both reviews written this summer and those written...

Re: WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS--Updates, Reviews and Discussion

Note: Several of the reviews posted were originally written in 2019. My original post stands otherwise. Another two reviews. The first is from BFI, has only positives. What I like most about this one is the detailed summary of the film/ Also noted -- Waiting for the Barbarians premieres in London o...

Re: WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS--Updates, Reviews and Discussion

I pre-ordered the DVD on Amazon for $11.99 -- free shipping with Prime -- I thought when I ordered it that the delivery date was supposed to be August 11 but now I see it will be released September 8. A DVD that you can watch over and over is the same price as a rental? Most movies are just 4 or 5 ...

Re: WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS--Updates, Reviews and Discussion

I just wanted to add this here. It's a link to Samuel Goldwyn Films where you can rent Waiting for the Barbarians on August 7th (in the US) for $12.00. A fair price very similar to theaters. I know it's supposed to be available 'on demand' on the 7th, but so far this is a only place where I see the ...

Re: WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS--Updates, Reviews and Discussion

August 7th in the US. But different dates for different countries. I can tolerate this opening online because of the pandemic, but I will never stop loving the experience of sitting in a theater, having the lights fade, the murmuring audience quiet and the curtains open. Theater is experiential. It ...
