Telluride 2011: Lineup Includes Descendants, Albert Nobbs, Dangerous Method and The Artist

The annual LA to Montrose charter flight was packed with the usual suspects Thursday (plus first-timers Tilda Swinton and Penelope Ann Miller), who opened up their copies of The Telluride Watch, one per seat, and eagerly checked out the line-up.

 

Films playing in Telluride this Labor Day weekend include Martin Scorsese's George Harrison doc Living in the Material World, Michel Hazanavicius's The Artist (France), Wim Wenders' Pina (Germany/France/UK), Werner Herzog's Into the Abyss, David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method, the Dardenne brothers' The Kid with a Bike, Cristián Jiménez's Bonsai (Chile), Aki Kaurismäki's Le Havre (Finland/Germany/France), Joseph Cedar's Footnote (Israel), Steve McQueen's Shame (UK), Asghar Farhadi's A Separation (Iran), Bela Tarr's The Turin Horse (Hungary), Jon Shenk's global warming doc The Island President and Alexander Zeldovich's Target (Russia). Rodrigo Garcia's Albert Nobbs will debut with producer-writer-star Glenn Close on hand. George Clooney and Tilda Swinton will be tributed, accompanied by showings of Alexander Payne's The Descendants and Lynne Ramsay's We Need to Talk About Kevin, respectively. (The Ides of March will not be one of the TBAs, I understand, although The Rum Diary might turn up with Johnny Depp.)
