Interviews Melancholia

Over the course of a career not much shorter than her 29 year-old life, Kirsten Dunst has covered a lot of bases — skipping gamely between fluorescent Hollywood blockbusters, handmade American indies, fizzy teen comedies, primetime television and the chillier climes of the European arthouse — but there’s one area the actress feels she’s neglected thus far.

“I really want to do a film in another language,” she says, her tone ruminative but quite serious, over the phone from Los Angeles. “My dad’s from Germany, so it’d be really cool to do a film in German. I’m not quite fluent, but I can get there. And my accent’s pretty good. I wouldn’t feel too out of my element.”

It’s not just any German film she wants to work on either: Michael Haneke, that esteemed Austrian dissector of psychological trouble, currently tops her wishlist of directors to work with in the future, a group that also include Paul Thomas Anderson and Alexander Payne. The prospect of the sunny New Jersey blonde collaborating with the frosty German-born formalist isn’t quite as unimaginable as it might have been a year or two ago, before another prickly European provocateur, Lars von Trier, showed everyone what Kirsten Dunst is made of in “Melancholia.”

Melancholia News

There ain’t no melancholy for Melancholia star Kirsten Dunst and Moneyball, Tree of Life actor Brad Pitt!

The National Society of Film Critics honored the two stars Saturday at its 46th annual awards as Best Actress and Best Actor, as well as naming Dunst’s Melancholia, directed by iconoclast Lars von Trier, as Best Picture.

Dunst’s role in the end-of-the-world drama continues to look like an Oscar contender—the actress took Best Actress for the role at Cannes before getting the Critics nod Saturday, beating out Yun Jung-hee for her role in Poetry and Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady.

As for the allegorical film itself, Melancholia topped Pitt’s and Sean Penn‘s Tree of Life to be honored as Best Picture by the group.

But Tree of Life was strong, winning Terrence Malick the Best Director honor, and also figuring into Jessica Chastain‘s nod for Best Supporting Actress (in addition to her roles in The Help and Take Shelter).

So there were plenty of awards to go around, as long as you were Tree of Life or Melancholia, that is.

Site Updates

I’m so sorry!!

I’ve been a bad webmistress these past months, my personal life is busy busy busy and finding just a little time and energy to update KDO is very hard for me which is resulting in me feeling very guilty. In order for me to get rid of some of all this guilt then I’ve decided to put this site on a hiatus for an unknown period of time, hopefully not for too long.

Sorry for the trouble and thanks for understanding!
