Quebec filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée, who directed Dallas Buyers Club, spoke to CBC’s Jian Ghomeshi, who asked whether he ever considered casting a transgender actor."Never. [Are] there any transgender actors?" he said. "I’m not aiming for the real thing. I’m aiming for an experienced actor who wants to portray the thing." (x)by “the thing” of course he means someone who is transgender
cloweewow said: Interesting, I liked World War Z and Broken (although it ended really badly), but I agree with you about Hitchcock and Zero Dark Thirty, which I suffered through due to similarly high expectations after The Hurt Locker.
Annoyingly enough, I can’t remember the ending of Broken now. What was it you liked about World War Z?
Yeah OK, this is obviously very belated. I should’ve had this finished just after the New Year, but illness and life in general got in the way (not to mention my purchasing of a second hand Wii to further my old gaming obsession) and I ended up writing this list in a hurry last night instead. I thought that being near the awards season, this would be the perfect time to put forward some opinions about the best and worst of the year. Also, it’s a Top 9 because I couldn’t find anymore bad films from the year, which is a shame really, but there’s plenty of ramblings to be read. The Top 10 Best Films of 2013 will be coming up soon. If you’re interested in any of these films, there’s clips or trailers linked in the titles.
