Alexander Payne's Downsizing is opening the Venice Film Festival....the early buzz is impressive

It's actually been on the receiving end of a lot of reshoots and tinkering all year-- word is every test audience has struggled with the film and Payne was still trying to make it work up to the last minute. For a high concept film like this, that's not necessarily a bad thing, but tempered expectations may be best here. Early word is that despite the name brand cast, it's relative unknown Hong Chau who has the best role and is likely to get Oscar nommed for her perf-- some of you may remember her as Linh, the woman Sonny marries on Treme

That's exciting to hear, Chau was fantastic in Inherent Vice as well
