perhaps you should start a barry lyndon topic where you can delve deeply into this woman's gaze.

 ;D

I hate this laughing emoticon. Could we have something that indicates uproarious laughter rather than simple sniggering? :(

Lady Lyndon hardly speaks, yet her sadness communicates to me very powerfully.

I think she's very much inexpressive. I can't see her carry any different "gaze" from her first frame to the last. Actually, l always had the impression like she was playing under sedatives.

I'm with Titoli on this one. She looks the same in more or less every scene. I'm not sure what planet Jinkies is smoking. :D

The Prisoner - 7/10 - 1955 political drama with Alec Guinness as a Cardinal behind the Iron Curtain, persecuted as a threat to the Communist order. A bit too much of a filmed play, and the scenes not focused on our protagonist are very weak on the whole (not sure what need we have of the policeman and his girlfriend), but the main story is very well-done and Peter Glenvile's direction is appropriately atmospheric. Guinness is excellent par usual, but the real revelation is Jack Hawkins, giving probably his best film performance as Guinness's cunning comrade-turned-interrogator. Wilfrid Lawson is also amusing as the obnoxious jailor. Worth a look at least; the subject matter has been done before and since, and better, but it's done well-enough.

Radio Days (1987) - 7.5/10
It's not a masterpiece of cinema but it's a nice little movie O0

The Captain's Paradise - 9/10 - Loads of fun, a great Ealing comedy about a sea captain (Alec Guinness) who keeps two different wives (Yvonne De Carlo and Celia Johnson) in two different ports. Hilarious throughout; Guinness is loads of fun, and I think this movie only cements my theory that I'm in love with Celia Johnson. Gets an extra star for the unbelievably hilarious ending. O0

The St. Valentine's Day Massacre (1967) 3/6
it's age shows very well with the cheap looking sets and sometimes comical overacting but enjoyable nonetheless. jack nicholson even has a tiny cameo in it.

Very cheesy but it has its own charms.

Mildred Pierce - 9/10 - Excellent movie, but I fail to see how it is categorized as film noir.

The first 5 minutes are noir, then it defaults to Standard Woman's Picture. Good, though.

Drugstore Cowboy (1989) 4/6
a really uneven movie with some great parts and some not so great. its much less powerful than requiem for a dream but also not as heavy to watch.
I think my favorite lines in the movie came from a junkie priest who after having received a bag of pharmaceutical drugs from matt dillons character tells him "god bless you my son, may you go to heaven". and when he looks through the bag and sees that it contains a bottle of what I presume is some kind of morphine he says "this should earn you an indulgence". that really cracked me up :)

That sounds about right. Now can you please tell it to the morons in my film class? ::)

Won't do any good. They've seen it on the lists, so that's that. If you really want to get a rise out of them, tell them there really isn't any such thing as film noir.
