Oscar 2018 Winner Predictions: Director

“Since childhood, I’ve been faithful to monsters. I have been saved and absolved by them, because monsters, I believe, are patron saints of our blissful imperfection, and they allow and embody the possibility of failing,” said Guillermo del Toro while receiving his award for best director earlier this year at the Golden Globes. It’s a beautiful sentiment that goes a long way toward explaining the appeal of the filmmaker’s The Shape of Water. Case in point, the comment left by one Marisa Damele to a Variety article announcing that del Toro had been selected to head the jury at the next Venice Film Festival: “Guillermo del Toro knows how to make us realize, with every one of his films, that some monsters have beauty inside, while some good looking humans are hiding a monster in their interior. Not everything is what it looks like. See through the package. This is the message. He is brilliant.”

Watch Paul Thomas Anderson’s Music Video for Radiohead’s “Daydreaming”

Three days ago, Radiohead released the first single, “Burn the Witch,” from their ninth studio album, along with its Wicker Man-inspired music video. And if that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, today the band has released the music video from another of the album’s tracks, “Daydreaming,” directed by filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson. In the video, the Inherent Vice director’s camera follows Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke through numerous locales, from hotel hallways to laundromats. The images, lucid and confrontational, exude an almost gestural quality as they cut from interior and exterior spaces, with Yorke waltzing in a sleep-like torpor toward a hole—or spacious studio igloo?—somewhere on a snow-capped mountain. The world here appears at once real and imagined, and by the time the fire within the hole lights Yorke’s face and the song grinds to a halt, Anderson dramatically reaffirms most of our beliefs about Radiohead’s music as, above all else, the prettiest soundtrack in the world to one man’s devotion to his own alienation.
