Cover Up (1949) - 7/10. A small town murder mystery set at Christmas, with Dennis O'Keefe and William Bendix. The story is pretty hokey, but there's an interesting trick table, and a lot of funny lines. Barbara Britton is easy on the eyes, too. https://ok.ru/video/2091163322907

Public Speaking (2010) - 9/10. Scorsese's documentary on Fran Lebowitz, the funniest woman in America. Something to watch while I wait for Netflix to issue Pretend It's a City on disc.

Mank (2020) - 8/10
Second viewing, which came much later than I expected and wanted. The film was amazingly limpid this time around. It?s the story of Mank?s redemption it?s the story of a man who thought he wasn?t part of the system, and scene after scene, discovers he is. Then he makes a movie about himself, and a rich guys takes it personally.
What stroke me more than the first time around is how much of a comedy this is. And how much David Fincher is having fun emulating a comedy, and this is where the real comedy lies (which is weird for a movie that fascinated by death: death of a certain kind of cinema, death of the big screen, death of many of its characters, death of Jack Fincher, death of the screenwriters...).

This thread is called ?rate the last movie you saw,? not ?tell us the last movie you saw.?  :P

Was it good? Bad? Ugly? Sumthin else?

Promising Young Woman (2020) - 9/10. The wife and I are big Carey Mulligan fans, so we took this in. I was leery in the beginning, though: it seemed the director was trying to blend a romcom with a revenge flick, requiring two incompatible tones. But as the story unfolded, with its many twists and reverses, it all came together very neatly. This has a really, really clever plot, maybe the best I've seen since the Tarantino/Roger Avary days. (I'm not sure why, but it also includes two separate references to Night of the Hunter.) Someone named Emerald Fennell both wrote and directed. IMDb tells me she's chiefly an actress in British television. She's obviously someone with a career worth following, which I shall do from now on.

Der Verlorene aka The Lost Man (1951)



Directed by Peter Lorre.

Based on a novel by Peter Lorre screenplay was by Axel Eggebrecht, Helmut K?utner, Peter Lorre and Benno Vigny. Cinematography was by V?clav V?ch, Music by Willy Schmidt-Gentner.

The film stars Peter Lorre as Dr. Karl Rothe, aka Dr. Karl Neumeister, Karl John as H?sch, aka Nowak, Helmuth Rudolph as Colonel Winkler, Johanna Hofer as Frau Hermann, Renate Mannhardt as Inge Hermann, Eva Ingeborg Scholz asUrsula Weber, Lotte Rausch as Woman on Train, Gisela Trowe as Prostitute, Hansi Wendler as the Secretary.

This story is told in a series of flashbacks. Dr Rothe is a kindly German doctor caring for refugees and displaced persons in a relocation camp after the war. When H?sch his former assistant is brought to the camp he triggers the flashbacks.

In reality he is Dr. Karl Neumeister who was a scientist doing bacteriological research to help the Nazi war effort during WWII. All is good until the SS informs him that his fianc?e is secretly selling his secret discoveries and formulas to the Allies for food money while also having an affair with H?sch. H?sch is an SS informer who reveals her activities to the authorities. Neumeister goes off his rocker and murders her by strangulation.

The crime is covered up by the SS. However  things go Noirsville when Neumeister not quite right in the head any longer now gets an un-controllable impulse to strangle any woman who reminds him in any small way of his dead fianc?e.

Lorre has some great closeups, his puss twitching grotesquely in this depicting his conflicting emotions and tortured mental illness. V?clav V?ch's  cinematography is both nightmarish and dream like. 8/10

Alien: Covenant 6/10
I'm surprised by its rewatch value. I like the first hour a lot. After that, it quickly falls apart, but still has a couple of good scenes to offer. The key is to not expect too much of it, and not take it as a whole movie: let's pick and chose good action/adventure scenes in the Alien universe.

Prometheus (2012) 6/10
Gorgeous to look at. A real adventure feel from time to time (especially in the first hour). Cool abortion scene. It's better to shut your brain off most of the time and enjoy the ride. Good rewatch value, lots of Lawrence of Arabia tributes all over the place.

Are you not gonna watch it on Netflix? I've got a feeling that one won't be getting a physical release.

I didn't like Public Speaking when it came out but I was also 20 years old and thought it was annoying. I liked Pretend It's a City a lot, 8/10.

John Carpenter's Christine (1982) - 9/10
The Lord of the Rings (2001 - 2003) - 7/10

I don't have Netflix so I'm hoping for a physical release. It may not happen, as you say, but The Irishman was Netflix and Scorsese, and it got released on disc, so there's a chance. If you like Pretend It's a City I'd think you'd like Public Speaking, so you should go back and try it again.

Generation War (Unsere Mutter, unsere Vater), 3-part mini-series.  German language, English subtitles.  I give 8.5/10, well worth watching.  Follows 5 young German friends from 1941-1945.

Hey guys.

NETFLIX releases all its programs on DVD- at least in the US.
AMAZON is the the streaming service that doesn't- you have to subscribe to see original content.
So, if you have to choose, subscribe to AMAZON.
You can catch NETFLIX on disc.
