....yes I&II flow into each other beautifully. III is post Scarface for a start and the real shouty Pacino had arrived.

Yeah it's no classic, to put it extremely mildly.

I'll take the movie Insomnia over this any day. That was a good one.

I'm surprised there's not a topic like this. Anyway... Moonrise Kingdom.

Finally saw Three Billboards this weekend. Excellent flick!   I have never seen Frances McDormand be any less than outstanding, in any role she assumes.

Dark Waters. Good film, not great. Mark Ruffalo is a solid actor. Tim Robbins is in it and is not good. This is a lawyer working on suing Dupont for poisoning the water in West Virginia. True Story. 

 

Also re-watched Spotlight yesterday. Fantastic film.

The Passenger.

Atmospheric, dark and fascinating. My first experience of Antonioni, that shot at the end ... I ll be watching more. Nicholson excellent, Maria Schneider beguiling.... superb film.

Should go for the Trifecta with "The Big Short" 

Dark Waters was fabulous! So was Spotlight and The Big Short. 

I just read a couple of articles (not movie related) that some are starting to short the US stock market.

Pickup On South Street, from 1953.
What a GREAT film noir.
Just fantastic.
Yes the era of the 'Red scare' may be dated but regardless this is just great.
Richard Widmark is fantastic (and BTW, this was SO much better than watching it through you tube - which I gotta do sometimes - where it was 20 minutes longer! Containing no extra footage, of course).
His performance to me one of the most kick-ass ones this side of Glenn Ford in The Big Heat (which will always rule to me)
Jean Peters as Candy also gives an great performance, all the while being one of the most gorgeous women I've seen in a film noir this side of Jane Greer in Out Of The Past.
But the best performance belongs to Thelma Ritter as Moe. She's incredible  in this.
This deserves a Blu-ray release (not counting the region B one, which anyway supposedly looks NO better than this)
This is a really great looking DVD too.
Loved it!

Marked Woman from 1937.

Bette Davis is good but Bogart is really superb in this.

(Strangely he looks younger here than I've ever seen him, though this was a year after The Petrified Forest)

Very good film. Fine entertainment.

Watched Cheyenne Autumn, he was superb in that too. Although he seemed to be taking it a bit more seriously than John FOrd was with that awful 30 minute 'interlude' inolving James Stewart. I have always seen him otherwise in his later roles , CA made me want to catch more of his younger roles.

One of my very favorites.

A movie about how love REALLY is, often.

Chasing after those who don't care and not caring about those who do. The fucking human nature, of stupid-ass people.

Great movie. My third or fourth viewing. The BONDAGE, the way we become in bondage to others.

FUCK LOVE.

We watched this the other night. I was sure I hadn't seen it before....until the long final scene...which both my girlfriend and I sort of remembered.

Enjoyed it a lot.
