The Crowd - 8/10 - By far the best of the silent films we've watched in class. Really interesting and believable in spite a few veers towards the melodramatic. Go King Vidor! O0

Bensaa suonissa (1970) "Gas in the Veins" - 6/10

Once a Thief (1991) - 4/10
Woo's grand visions may get a bit pompous at times but I'd take that over his attempt at comedy any time.

Point Break - 7/10

PB is one of those movies that have very little value apart from pure entertainment. The script is pretty simple and very much cliched, the direction is simple and uninspired, all the roles are more or less overacted... But, PB is overall great fun. One of those adrenaline packed ''80s to 90s neo-bohemian no-brainers'' that you just can't help but love.


Quick Change - 7/10

I can't say if this is Murray's best performance as many state, but it is one of those movies where he's on fire, with a couple of great deadpan deliveries as he plays the ''trying to stay calm'' leader of a cranky trident that tries to get out of town after the bank robbery. Besides him Jason Robards has a great role as the tired old cop that wants to catch them. Also, Geena Davis, Randy Quaid, Tony Shalhoub, Vic Argo and others did a good job as supporting cast. Cult classic.


The Paper - 7.5/10

This is my favorite Ron Howard movie. Steady little ''working class urban jungle movie'', with no real threats on sight but great to watch.

The Lady With the Dog (1960) - 7/10. Russians in love, and complaining. It's hard to screw up Chekhov, but this Soviet production tries with an annoying soundtrack. Still, the excellent b&w photography of Yalta and a re-created 19th Century Moscow almost makes up for it. Some good acting, and an editing style that sets a brisk pace.

Kokoro/The Heart
(1955) - 8/10. Friendship and betrayal in Meiji-era Japan. This is an unpretentious adaptation of a famous novel--one that every schoolchild in Japan reads. Again, the beautiful b&w photography is to kill for, and shows to best advantage the radiant Michiyo Aratama.



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

All the President's Men - 1976 One of the best thrillers of the '70's. Redford is great, Robards is awesome, Hoffman below his par. 9\10

The Nun's Story - 10/10 - Second viewing, a really astonishing film all around that held up to a second watch. Hepburn's performance is among the very best screen performances by an actress, period; the final scene where she removes her habit is amazingly moving.

Mongol (2007) Biopic hollywood  style, it has the merit of not being spoken in english, of having unknown actors and showing unusual landascapes. But some documentaries do the job better. Here you learn nothing. 6\10

Adaptation 8/10

I expected it to be as viewer-unfriendly as Being John Malkovitch, and I was completly wrong. This one is really funny and says very true things about writing. And they don't think the audience is completly stupid: you have to figure out a few things by yourself. However, it still is a failure since they only made a movie about adapting a book and not at all about the book itself (which is almost reduced to what is writen on the back of the book, and not very well tied to the dramaturgy).

I give it O0

(Now i'm rewarding good movies like the Fonze would)

Slumdog Millionaire - 9/10 - Help up perfectly to a second viewing. I might even have enjoyed it more.

The Philadelpha Story. I give it a  O0 O0 O0. Funny, even though it's damn old. If it was remade, it will make any Judd Apatow film look like shit. And if only James Stewart was a show stealer. One of my favorite actors, and Cary Grant had great chemistry with Stewart and Hepurn. Kate is a great actress, but something about her is not sexy at all.

White Heat- Another good movie, dated, but James Cagney is always fun to watch.

Julius Ceaser (1953), Marlon Brando was fantastic as usual, sadly he overshadows James Mason's peformance as Brutus. Mason had about 3 times the screentime as Brando. This is the film were Brando showed us he's more than a rebel. He proved himself a master of the art.

Currently watching Laurence Olivier's interpretation of Hamlet. So far it looks good.

Kate is not in any way sexy or in my view even attractive. She's too frigid, shrill and self-absorbed to be attractive in anyway. There have been many actresses I've been attracted to in spite of a lack of physical attraction, but she's not one of them.

She certainly had a powerful screen presence.
