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 ...

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

Just read two reviews courtesy of Stephen Deuters. The Rolling Stone gives the film 3 stars, but the other reviewer gives Guerra and cast 4.5 stars. Coetzee waited so long to get this out to the general public, and that initial reviews are positive has to give him peace. Truly an important book and ...

Okay so now another uninformed question. I did read the transcripts last week, and I have twitter and followed Nick. But, as of Monday, I have seen NOTHING and heard NOTHING. Where are you going to read this week? I followed the links last week, but there were no links on Monday, so I figured we'd a...

I haven't seen 'the picture.' Is there a new photo that was released in court? Thanks. I assume you're talking about the picture of the faeces Amber left in the bed? Here's the pic but I'll put it in a spoiler for those that don't wish to see it. https://twitter.com/MsAuroraGilmore/status/128306782...
