[I wouldn't recommend watching this clip if you haven't seen Perfume and might someday. If you are gonna watch it, however, watch it now, as the YT police may remove it at any moment.]


This is Reichardt's first Skandie-eligible film (in the current Skandies format).

Coogan previously placed 3rd in 2002 for 24 Hour Party People, and also was #8 in Supporting two years ago for Coffee and Cigarettes. Carell finished 12th in the lead category last year for The 40 Year Old Virgin. Page and Gainsbourg each make their Skandie debut.

None of Perfume's writers has previously placed.

Relatively recently, you made a couple of brief mentions of the film River of Grass in relation to Old Joy, prompting me to add it to my Netflix list. I finally saw River of Grass this weekend. Oh my god, what an amazing movie. I watched it three times and still found new things to savor. It's beautiful and hilarious. Reichardt has an uncanny gift for observing small moments.

Thanks so much for bringing it to light, MD'A.
