Oldenburg International Film Festival is honoring Timothy Bottoms

02.08.10

With Timothy Bottoms the Oldenburg International Film Festival is honoring an icon of New Hollywood cinema. Timothy Bottoms is one of the unforgettable faces of New Hollywood. Recently the 58year old could be seen in the wonderfully ironic role as George W. Bush in Trey Parker’s cult sitcom THAT`S MY BUSH. With his debut in Dalton Trumbo’s breathtaking and radical anti-war statement JOHNNY GOT HIS GUN which won the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes in 1971 he entered a career spanning more than 65 films, starring alongside Dennis Hopper, Jeff Bridges, Donald Sutherland or Henry Fonda and Richard Widmark. He also appeared in Peter Bogdanovich’s THE LAST PICTURE SHOW which was nominated for eight Oscars. Oldenburg International Film Festival presents a tribute to Bottoms and shows his classic hits and great successes as well as his latest film, which sees him starring next to Malcolm McDowell: POUND OF FLESH is an moral tale without a moral tone. 75 year old director Tamar Simon Hoffs is going to present her film as a world premiere in Oldenburg. Her first short film THE HAIRCUT toured the festival circuit in 1983 and was lauded at Cannes, Toronto and Sundance. She also directed several music videos for The Bangles, whose lead singer Susanna Hoffs is her daughter.
