I finally found time to add screen captures of Salomé, Jessica’s first work based on Oscar Wilde play. The DVD came with two discs containing the film Salomé and the documentary Wilde Salomé about the play staged in Los Angeles with several behind the scenes looks. You will find the DVD screencaptures and I will be working on clips this weekend.
As part of the film promotion Jessica and Al Pacino did a screening with a Q&A at BFI Southbank, London, in September 21, 2014. This was also released on the DVD and you can find the Q&A in our video archive, and screencaptures as well.
I finally was able to watch The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him/Her and I have to say: what a work! Very unique, amazing acted… it became one of my favourite Jessica’s film so far. You can already watch The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them on iTunes. DVD/Blu-Ray containing all three versions are already available for pre-order, will be out next February 3rd!
On January 9, 2015, actors, filmmakers and executives from the film and television communities honored the creative teams from the most outstanding films and TV shows of the year at AFI AWARDS 2014 luncheon. They also revealed how they would like audiences to remember their work and how they defined 2014. These responses were recorded and entered into the AFI Archive as part of the Institute’s annual almanac of the moving image.
A Most Violent Year – and, of course, Jessica – are featured in some magazines from this earlier 2015. Entertainment Weekly has on its first issue of 2015 reviews from AMVY plus Miss Julie. Empire bring us AMVY and also feature Jessica as one of the year performers. And the February issue of Total Film has a feature on Jessica, AMVY in review and a special feature with Crimson Peak, with no new picture of Jess but you now can find the already released still in high quality at the gallery.
Yahoo Style published today this photoshoot featuring Jessica and Oscar Isaac, in order to promote A Most Violent Year.
Chastain has been hailed as a director’s darling, a chameleon-like talent who can shape shift into any character. So when Chandor was casting about for a male lead he solicited Chastain’s help. She immediately suggested Isaac, a fellow Julliard School graduate who was a virtual unknown until he made his star turn in the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewellyn Davis in 2013. “We had never acted together in school— he was a few years behind me— but I always wanted to do something with him,” she says.
Their thespian chops are on full display in A Most Violent Year. The film may be subtle (the violence is mostly alluded to), but both give powerhouse performances. Chastain is razor sharp as the cigarette-smoking, ice queen while Isaac, who said it was hard to grasp the part (“I know nothing about business and the heating oil business seemed so boring…”), nails it as a conflicted man struggling to obtain the American Dream.
The Playlist ranked on their website the 21 best performances in 2014, and they listed Jessica Chastain among them, under the #8.
8. Jessica Chastain – “A Most Violent Year”
The wife of the kingpin in a crime movie often feels like an afterthought or a nagging counterpoint to an antihero and inspired by Dick Cheney of all people, Jessica Chastain’s Anna in “A Most Violent Year” puts her would-be good-guy husband to shame. She’s a force of nature, threatening to do what her well-intentioned spouse can’t (or won’t) with a terrifying energy and a solid Brooklyn accent. She hands out goody bags and shoots a pistol with equal aplomb, and Chastain’s performance ensures that she’s never out of control, even while Oscar Isaac’s Abel feels events spiraling beyond his control. What’s most remarkable isn’t the performance itself; it’s that Anna falls alongside the variety of roles Chastain has taken on in 2014: the brittle title character in “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby;” her strong, sensitive Murph in “Interstellar”; and her unhinged aristocrat in “Miss Julie.” Any one of those could have stood out in another year, and her prescence in all four makes us question what everyone else is doing with their talent and time.
