I thought it was dull. To each his own I suppose.

After repeated viewings there are parts that I like to skip, but all in all the fantastic study of human nature (under stress) and complexes is more than enough to keep me interested.

Land and Freedom (1995) Loach does nothing for me. This could have earned him a 7\10 for the  way in which the experience of the leftists fighting in the Spanish Civil War is clearly and economically depicted. Nothing you cannot learn (and better) by reading Orwell's and Enzensberger's books about that drama. But the last scene with the niece clinching the fist made me cringe: crap like that was passť already in the stalinist movies of the '50's. 6\10

Riff-Raff (1991) One or two good ideas, but they are not well-developed because of the musty proletarian stance of the director and the writer. 6\10

Glengarry Glen Ross (1992) - 8.5/10

Rarely do the characters become so alive and real (basically > flawed) you (almost) feel uncomfortable watching them. A couple of cliches make us laugh, but a dozen make us cry. Don't know how was it exactly but I can see the sense behind that.

I thought it was pointless and didn't have an ending. They show a train nearby numerous times, it should've hit someone at the end. It's the law of Chekov's gun...

They also showed numerous phones, perhaps someone should have strangled himself with one. :D

I'm joking, don't remember much about that train to be honest. I guess you're right about the ending, I can understand if you don't like it, but I was just so busy following the characters that I didn't really care. ;)

The Mississippi Gambler (1953)  I thought this was a western. But it is a kind of Gone with the Wind melodrama. Still, as it was a Power's vehicle, it stressed the adventure side of the story. Successfully, I'd say, as it has an unrelenting rhythm and different plot twists: I followed it without ever getting bored. The girls are pretty, two well made poker games, great sets. I give it 7\10 only because it is not my kind of movie.

The 22nd I watched A View to a Kill......it's silver anniversary after all  ;)

The movie is underrated , beats Golden Gun and Moonraker any day.......I'd choose it over most of Brosnans Bond also but that's just me.

Zorin : Exactly  >:D

A breath of scandal 2/6.....only good thing is costumes & scenery
Black Orchid 2/6......title sounds exciting but do did Satanic rites of Dracula , see how that turned out lol :/
Sign of Venus 2/6.......unfunny "comedy" about 2 women searching for a man
It happened in Naples 3/6......barely acceptable , obviously Loren's dance routine is worth watching

71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance (1994) - 7.5/10
I don't know if I am a total nutcase but I found a couple of scenes quite funny (and not even in a campy way) even though this is a pure tragedy. Once again Haneke's story is overly simple as is his primary thesis but individual scenes form a mosaic covering a lot of themes and ideas. He has to realise that long doesn't always equal deep in filmmaking, though.

Last night I had a double-feature of Patton and For a Few Dollars More. I believe I've commented on both already.

Any adjustment in your ratings?



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