Balanço 2005 | Melhor Elenco
Melhor Elenco por not_alone

5 | The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou



4 | I Heart Huckabees



3 | Crash



2 | Closer



1 | Sin City



Um bom elenco tem de funcionar como um todo e partilhar o espírito do filme, nesta categoria, confesso que todos mereciam estar em 1º lugar. Sin City merece mais do que os outros porque é, indiscutivelmente, o filme com o elenco mais cool do ano. Todos eles se tornam nas personagens do imaginário de Frank Miller, trazendo a magia da banda desenhada para o grande ecrã, dando vida a desenhos que não se pensavam poder vir a ser reais.

Melhor Elenco por Pedro Romão

5 | I Heart Huckabees



4 | Sideways



3 | Crash



2 | Closer



1 | Million Dollar Baby



Million Dollar Baby tem, de facto, um elenco fabuloso. Não é todos os dias, nem sequer todos os anos, que temos a oportunidade de assistir a filmes que tenham desempenhos tão memoráveis como os de Clint Eastwood, Morgan Freeman e Hillary Shawk. Juntando três belas personagens a três excelentes actores só poderia mesmo originar o melhor elenco do ano.

Balanço 2005 | Melhor Diálogo
Melhor Diálogo por not_alone

5 | Sideways



Miles Raymond: What about you?
Maya: What about me?
Miles Raymond: I don't know. Why are you into wine?
Maya: Oh I... I think I... I originally got in to wine through my ex-husband.
Miles Raymond: Ah.
Maya: You know, he had this big, sort of show-off cellar, you know.
Miles Raymond: Right.
Maya: But then I discovered that I had a really sharp palate.
Miles Raymond: Uh-huh.
Maya: And the more I drank, the more I liked what it made me think about.
Miles Raymond: Like what?
Maya: Like what a fraud he was.
[Miles laughs softly]
Maya: No, I- I like to think about the life of wine.
Miles Raymond: Yeah.
Maya: How it's a living thing. I like to think about what was going on the year the grapes were growing; how the sun was shining; if it rained. I like to think about all the people who tended and picked the grapes. And if it's an old wine, how many of them must be dead by now. I like how wine continues to evolve, like if I opened a bottle of wine today it would taste different than if I'd opened it on any other day, because a bottle of wine is actually alive. And it's constantly evolving and gaining complexity. That is, until it peaks, like your '61. And then it begins its steady, inevitable decline.
Miles Raymond: Hmm.
Maya: And it tastes so fucking good.

Anna: We do everything that people who have sex do!
Larry: Do you enjoy sucking him off?
Anna: Yes!
Larry: You like his cock?
Anna: I love it!
Larry: You like him coming in your face?
Anna: Yes!
Larry: What does it taste like?
Anna: It tastes like you but sweeter!
Larry: That's the spirit. Thank you. Thank you for your honesty. Now fuck off and die, you fucked up slag.


3 | Million Dollar Baby



Maggie Fitzgerald:
I'm 32, Mr. Dunn, and I'm here celebrating the fact that I spent another year scraping dishes and waitressing which is what I've been doing since 13, and according to you I'll be 37 before I can even throw a decent punch, which I have to admit, after working on this speed bag for a month may be the God's simple truth. Other truth is, my brother's in prison, my sister cheats on welfare by pretending one of her babies is still alive, my daddy's dead, and my momma weighs 312lbs. If I was thinking straight I'd go back home, find a used trailer, buy a deep fryer and some oreos. Problem is, this the only thing I ever felt good doing. If I'm too old for this then I got nothing. That enough truth to suit you?

2 | Crash



[first lines]
Graham: It's the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something.

1 | Garden State



Andrew Largeman: I was a little boy and somebody made a shitty latch. That's what I think. That's what I think about the whole thing, OK? And I'm not gonna take those drugs anymore, because they have left me completely fucking numb. I have felt so fucking numb to everything I have experienced in my life, OK? And for that... for that I'm here to forgive you. You've always said that all you wanted was for us to have whatever it is we wanted, right? Well, maybe, what Mom wanted more then anything is for it to all be over, and for me, what I want more then anything in the world, is for it to be OK with you for me to feel something again, even if it's pain.
Gideon Largeman: Well, you're going against your doctor's recommendation, that a pretty weighty experiment to take on, don't you think?
Andrew Largeman: This is my life, Dad, this is it. I spent 26 years waiting for something else to start, so, no, I don't think it's too much to take on, because it's everything there is. I see now it's all of it. You and I are gonna be OK, you know that, right? We may not be as happy as you always dreamed we would be, but for the first time let's just allow ourselves to be whatever it is we are and that will be better. OK? I think that will be better.

5 | In her Shoes


(Aqueles que viram o filme sabem que esta fotografia não é da cena em questão, mas não consegui encontrar a foto correspondente)

[Rose has just caught her sister and her boyfriend in bed together]
Rose Feller: I liked you... I really liked you. She won't even remember your name. Probably can't even spell it.
[to her sister]
Rose Feller: Can you, Maggie? Come on, sound it out. Juh-imm. Jim. Oh, she's pretty, this one... but real stupid.
Maggie Feller: Shut up, you fat pig!
Rose Feller: [beat] Did you honestly just say, "Fat pig"? You're my sister... and the best you can do is "fat pig"?
[slams Maggie against the wall]
Rose Feller: [shouts] Get out of my life!

3 | Million Dollar Baby


(Para evitar o desvendar do filme optei por não por a foto que corresponde à cena)

Spoilers:
Maggie Fitzgeral: I can't be like this, Frankie. Not after what I've done. I've seen the world. People chanted my name. Well, not my name, some damn name you gave me. They were chanting for me. I was in magazines. You think I ever dreamed that'd happen? I was born two pounds, one-and-a-half ounces. Daddy used to tell me I'd fight my way into this world, and I'd fight my way out. That's all I wanna do, Frankie. I just don't wanna fight you to do it. I got what I needed. I got it all. Don't let 'em keep taking it away from me. Don't let me lie here 'till I can't here those people chanting no more.

2 | Star Wars- Episode III



Supreme Chancellor: Remember back to your early teachings. "All who gain power are afraid to lose it." Even the Jedi.
Anakin Skywalker: The Jedi use their power for good.
Supreme Chancellor: Good is a point of view, Anakin. The Sith and the Jedi are similar in almost every way, including their quest for greater power.
Anakin Skywalker: The Sith rely on their passion for their strength. They think inward, only about themselves.
Supreme Chancellor: And the Jedi don't?
Anakin Skywalker: The Jedi are selfless... they only care about others.
Supreme Chancellor: Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "the wise"?
Anakin Skywalker: No.
Supreme Chancellor: I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.
Anakin Skywalker: He could actually save people from death?
Supreme Chancellor: The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.
Anakin Skywalker: What happened to him?
Supreme Chancellor: He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.
Anakin Skywalker: Is it possible to learn this power?
Supreme Chancellor: Not from a Jedi.

1 | Crash



Daniel: She had these little stubby wings, like she could've glued them on, you know, like I'm gonna believe she's a fairy. So she said, "I'll prove it." So she reaches into her backpack and pulls out this invisible cloak and she ties it around my neck. And she tells me that it's impenetrable. You know what impenetrable means? It means nothing can go through it. No bullets, nothing. She told me that if I wore it, nothing would hurt me. And I did. And my whole life, I never got shot, stabbed, nothing. I mean, how weird is that?

Balanço 2005 | Melhor Fotografia
Melhor Fotografia por not_alone

5 | Alice



4 | The Aviator



3 | Million Dollar Baby



2 | Un Long Dimanche de Fiançailles



1 | The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou



A imagem ganha vida própria neste filme, o azul do mar, o vermelho dos gorros, todo o mundo que Wes Anderson cria tem um estilo muita mais cool que o nosso. Neste filme é caso para dizer que as emoções têm cor.

Melhor Fotografia por Pedro Romão

5 | The Constant Gardener



4 | Alice



3 | Million Dollar Baby



2 | The Aviator



1 | Un Long Dimanche de Fiançailles



Confesso que não vi o filme, no entanto depois de pesquisar e de assitir a alguns momentos do filme torna-se factual que a direcção de fotografia de Un Long Dimanche de Fiançailles é a mais inspirada do ano. De facto, nota-se no tratamento da imagem um especial cuidado e uma escolha de cores contrastantes de acordo com o contexto em causa, que penso que as imagens em si espelham bem.

Melhor montagem por not_alone

5 | Alice



4 | King Kong



3 | The Aviator



2 | Oldboy



1 | Million Dollar Baby



Clint Eastwood não quis mesmo deixar nada ao acaso neste filme, tanto a nível emocional como técnico há um trabalho que requer mestria, e o realizdor consegue-o. O filme flui sem grandes cortes ou incoerências visuais. O trabalho de montagem é apenas uma das muitas qualidades do filme.

Melhor Montagem por Pedro Romão

5 | Oldboy



4 | The Interpreter



3 | Crash



2 | Million Dollar Baby



1 | The Aviator



Se houve algum prémio justo na última cerimónia dos Óscares, o de Melhor Montagem para Telma Schoomaker foi um deles. De facto, a montagem de Aviador é completamente irrepreensível, não havendo nenhum defeito a apontar. Com uma transição de planos fantástica, onde se destaca por exemplo a cena do tribunal, Telma Schoomaker permite que o filme ganhe uma consistência fanstática que em tudo beneficia o espectador.

Melhor Banda-sonora por not_alone

5 | Vários | Gegen Die Wand



4 | Vários | De Battre Mon Coeur C'est Arreté



3 | Vários | Elizabethtwown



2 | Vários | Garden State



1 | Vários | Last Days



Em Last Days há duas coisas que não passam despercebidas, Michael Pitt e que aquele é um filme sobre um músico. Quando juntamos os dois, temos uma das mais belas cenas de cinema do ano, Michael Pitt a interpretar Death to Birth. Para além disso há sempre algumas canções que acompanham o músico. Ainda que discretamente e sem se fazerem notar, essas canções sustentam grande parte do filme, quando não há nada de interessante para ver, ouve-se. Velvet Underground, The Hermitt e, principalmente, Michale Pitt [entre outros] tentam demonstrar o caos na cabeça de um homem. That Day é talvez o melhor exemplo de uma música que sem dizer nada, conta uma história.

Melhor Banda-sonora por Pedro Romão

5 | Vários | Elizabethtown



4 | John Williams | War of the Worlds



3 | John Williams | Star Wars



2 | Danny Elfman | Charlie and the Chocolat Factory



1 | Danny Elfman | Corpse Bride




Danny Elfman é, sem dúvida, a grande figura musical do ano de 2005 (talvez a par com John Williams). Com uma partitura excelente quer em Corpse Bride quer no Chocolate Factory a verdade é que a minha escolha recaiu neste filme de animação devido ao trabalho que por ele foi desenvolvido De facto, Elfman não se limitou a compor as músicas, escreveu-as e, espantem-se, interpretou algumas das músicas do filme inclusive as várias vozes que se ouvem durante alguns excelentes momentos musicais do filme. Desta imensa entrega, saiu a banda-sonora mais inspirada, divertida e pertinente do ano de 2005.
