Trailer Blazer: 'Fur'

102225__fur_lFur (Nov. 10) So the good news is that this ”imaginary portrait” of Diane Arbus doesn’t cough up the typical “brilliant hero fights childhood demons and then triumphs/self-destructs” biopic hairball. Maybe because it’s not really a biopic at all, but more a matter of director Steven Shainberg (Secretary) introducing fictitious elements into Arbus’ journey from ’50s housewife to groundbreaking photographer. The mysterious tone (bunnies! masks! a muy hairy Robert Downey Jr.!) is certainly the kind of thing at which Nicole Kidman excels (I still get flashback-chills from The Others); so long as Shainberg doesn’t let things devolve into total art-house daffiness, this could be a sleeper on fall’s Important Movie calendar. Your thoughts, folks?
