Adam Driver gets a special shoutout at the 2021 Emmy Awards from the crew at Last Week Tonight with John Oliver 😂 - “We would like to dedicate this award to Adam Driver. He knows what he did and he knows what we’d like him to do. Thank you.”
Everything about Annette makes it into a operatic dreamscape of musical melodrama of narcissistic anxieties and artistic self-loathing. However, things never rise from the film’s terrific opening sequence headlined by Sparks’ “May We Start?” where Carax in meta-fashion corrals his cast into singing together as themselves like a cinematic curtain-raiser or overture. Sadly, things never meet such a fine start full of cinematic energy.
