Stranger By the Lake as a 2013 film or a 2014 film - technically it only came out today in the US, but I saw it in the Fall at the New York Film Festival and it came out in France last June. Any opinions? Anyway which ever way I decide, that's where the film will place on our Golden Trousers awards because I loved it very very much and if I do hold it off for next year's awards then the next twelve months (excuse me, eleven) will have to be mind-blowing for it to drop out of my top ten. So since it is out here in New York today - and Guiraudie is doing Q&As at both IFC Center and Lincoln Center, if you're here in town (Lincoln Center's doing a whole retrospective on the director, actually) - I figured I should link back up to my brief review of the movie from back in October, and remind y'all that you should see this movie, it is really very very good. Peak perv.
I try to stick to US theatrical release dates (unless a movie in question doesn't ever get one), so Strangers... is a 2014 movie for me, even though I saw it at TIFF in September.
Yeah I'm probably going to fall down on that side - that's what I did with Frances Ha, I saw it in Oct 2012 but held off on it for this year's awards. It just murders my patience though!
2013 for me. Not only did I see it in 2013, but it was released in a lot of the world in 2013 (including France and Australia), I will forever think of it as a 2013 film, and it's silly that it got released in freakin' January.
I go by "release in home country" on a general level. It's less anxiety-producing.
