Cary Fukunaga built up a lot of goodwill among cinephiles with Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre, but it was TV's True Detective that truly got people's attention. More dramas about straight, white men? Dream on! Cary's back to his old ways making films that kinda need to be made, with Netflix's Beasts of No Nation. Good luck to the company as they plan to approach awards season from a very new perspective, challenging voting bodies to accept their multi-platform release as a nominee. The film already has a Venice competition slot and a Toronto special presentation coming up before that release, in the US on the 16th of October, so their bullishness looks to be well-warranted.
