Fight Club (1999) - 9(.5)/10
I remember saying some time ago that this isn't all that re-watchable. Well, I take that back. One of the best movies of the 90s.

Most of the time my racist remarks are just jokes. But when directed toward that worthless coon Spike Lee... I couldn't be more serious.

Groundhog Day - 8/10
Great movie.

The Passionate Friends - 8/10 - Take Brief Encounter. Replace Ceilia Johnson with Ann Todd and add Claude Rains. Shift the focus from Alec and Laura to Laura and her husband. Add some location shooting (in the French Alps) and crowd scenes, and voila, you have The Passionate Friends. It's a very good film, although it doesn't quite measure up to the aforementioned film. Ann Todd is pretty good although she's not as good as Johnson, and Trevor Howard is actually rather dull as the third-wheel character. The real star is Claude Rains, who quite handily steals the film from the two illicit lovers; this is probably my favorite of his performances that I've seen so far. Great photography too. About a middle-of-the-pack Lean for me.

Fair enough. I watchec this on Turner last night too (thanks for the heads up, Grogs). What impressed me was the editing, although the flashbacks-within-a-flashback was confusing. Still, the crosscutting was direct and quite clean, anticpating the work of Resnais . . . and ater Lean.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Editing is a good point, Jenkins, and I agree with you about the flashbacks. But that ceased being a problem after about thirty minutes or so.

It may be of interest to you, Jenkins, that the Pitt library now has all of Lean's films on DVD, so there's a good chance I'll be able to view his entire filmography in the near-future. O0 If only I'd been able to take the Lean/Powell class this semester... :-\

I'm going to watch either The 39 Steps or Mr. Smith Goes to Washington on one of those free movie download websites tonight. You will, of course, find out once I post my next comment on this thread. ;)

The 39 Steps - 7/10 - I'll add the caveat that I watched it on YouTube. Anyway, on the basis of this viewing, I didn't think it was anything overly special, although it's interesting as the prototype for pretty much every Hitchcock movie made afterwards (North by Northwest most directly). It did have its moments, though; I loved Robert Donat's impromptu political speech, in particular.
