Talkin' about The Getaway and its remake. Not Chinatown. Which is a 10/10 for me.

Haha, okay good. I was about to be buuummeeed. ;)

No worries, I only dislike stinky movies like Slumdog.

Pygmalion - 9/10 - Nice to see this popping up on TCM just as I've been reading lots of Shaw for my English/theatre class. Wendy Hiller is a great Eliza, beautiful in an unconventional way and lots of fun to watch. Leslie Howard is a great Higgins although I probably prefer, and the movie certainly benefited from lacking the obnoxious music and sublimating side characters like Alfred Doolittle and Freddy. David Lean edited the film, and directed its primary montage scene (of Liza's elocution lessons) - his first major directing job for those interested. It makes me really wish all that much more that the film of My Fair Lady had been a non-musical straight version of Pygmalion with the same cast - then we might have had something.

Peeping Tom - 9/10 - Both funny as hell and extremely disturbing. Always a good combination. O0

It's perfect timing, large one...

Ofelaš / Pathfinder (1987) - 8/10
I saw it in Saami with Norwegian subtitles, thanks to which I understood about five words of the whole thing... But we got the background history and some of the most important scenes explained.


And yesterday I FINALLY saw The Magnificent Seven, but I won't rate it now... it needs some time to figure out, considering I kept remembering The Seven Samurai when watching it.

Is this the one where the kid's family/tribe gets slaughtered and then he has to take it on the lam, trying to keep one step ahead of the killers who are after him? If so, 1987 was probably when I last saw it . . .

Yes, it's that one. It seemed more like a family than a tribe... And he's not only running from them, later on it's him who shows the way to them... trying to have his revenge.

Finding Nemo (2003) - 9/10
Fourth of fifth viewing and it's still probably my favorite Pixar movie.

Katastrofin aineksia (2008) "Recipes for Disaster" - 8.5/10
A documentarist decides that he and his family are going to live without oil or plastic for a year. That means no car, no food packaged in plastic or even toothpaste in plastic tubes. As his wife and kids are not as idealistic as he is, drama can't be avoided. Sounds like another Michael Moore/Morgan Spurlock kinda movie but this is a lot more realistic and down-to-earth. It's more about human drama - especially between the idealistic man and his reluctant wife - than about going after international corporations. And in the end he is even ready to admit that he was wrong in some aspects. Changing petrol to biodiesel does make a difference but abandoning toothpaste really does not.

Well for me it's a tight race between that and the Toy Stories. Conceding that I haven't seen Wall-E, I don't think they've made anything truly great since Finding Nemo - maybe the first half of The Incredibles.

Meghe Dhaka Tara/ The Cloud-Capped Star (1960) - 4/10. A young Bengali woman is the sole support for her feckless family. She gets TB and dies. Everyone's sorry then--especially the viewer, who has had to endure every bite of this over-egged pudding. The sound design (consisting of music and found sounds), interesting though it may be, provides too little compensation.

Il generale Della Rovere (1959) - 8/10 An odd Rosselini: a return to the Open City, but now re-imagined in the studio. Apparently the film was shot quickly and somewhat cheaply: it abounds with bad rear projection and unconvincing inserts of file footage. The story, about a con man co-opted by the Germans to pass as a war hero so he can gather intelligence in prison on the Resistance, is predictable: of course he will take his part to heart and die a hero's death. But the film is terrific. De Sica, who plays the lead, looks great and is adequate to the role, and the other players (many of whom appear only briefly) provide him with the support he needs. And in spite of the fact the plot offers no surprises, the story remains interesting, the drama compelling. Based on a true story, we're told, but that doesn't really matter. Did I mention Giovanna Ralli is in the picture?

Winner of the Golden Beaver at Murmansk: those film juries really love their art films.
