Days of Being Wild (1990) - 8/10
Second viewing, first on 35mm film (very good print, rather small screen).

"The Lady with the Dog" / Dama s sobachkoy (1960) - 8/10
Second viewing, first on 35mm film (a pretty good print considering the age). A romance based on Chekhov's short story. The story in its whole complexity: A married man and a married woman fall in love and try to cope with it. Hammy at the worst, breathtaking at the best. Awesome score, especially the lovers' theme - check it out if you can find it somewhere (I couldn't).

Lucky you! I have the U.S. DVD. I agree with your score.

Morrissey 25: Live (2013) - A filmed record of the March 2, 2013 concert given by Mozzer at Hollywood High. Nicely filmed and edited, it looks great in 4K. Probably of interest only to fans, and even I (a kinda, sorta fan) was a little disappointed by the song selection. To my mind, a performance with a better set list--and a much more attractive audience--can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOzodBqF6jI

Charley Varrick - 8/10 - Good thriller that, if nothing else, proves that Joe Don Baker can be taken seriously.

Le dernier metro (1980) - 9/10. Truffaut's smart film about French theater during the Occupation. Too bad about the tacky sets, but Catherine Deneuve, the most beautiful woman in the world (at the time of filming), is a real pleasure to watch.

(I don't think Deneuve was that hot, but that's in the eyes of the beholder.) IMO the best thing about the look/color of this movie is Deneuve's bright red lipstick. You have these mostly dark colors, everything is indoors in this dark theater or cellar, and then that bright red lipstick, such a great use of color.

Inchon - 2/10 - Hard to say what's worse about this movie. The incoherent battle scenes? Laurence Olivier playing Douglas MacArthur as a mixture of W.C. Fields and Boris Karloff's Mummy? Jacqueline Bissett complaining about traffic while North Korean planes strafe her car? Anticommunist agitprop that makes Red Dawn look subtle? Being produced by the Moonies? Yeah, this one's exactly as bad as they say.

Three films today, all good ones.

Pork Chop Hill - 8/10 - 2nd viewing. A gritty, unsparing portrayal of the Korean conflict. The movie works flawlessly focusing on the travails of Gregory Peck's platoon slugging their way through Chinese entrenchments. Its digressions into politics and speechmaking are annoying, but relatively brief.

Western Union - 8/10 - Fritz Lang's second Western replaces the stock building-the-railroad plot with telegraph lines. Chock full of cliches but you don't really care: beautiful photography and stylish action scenes give it a kick. Randolph Scott comes into his own as Western lead, (figuratively) blowing nominal star Robert Young off the screen.

The Beguiled - 8/10 - Clint Eastwood plays a Yankee deserter taken in by a Southern girl's school. Mind games and sexual tension ensue. Plays like Tennessee Williams meets Pasolini's Teorema, an oddly artsy film for Don Siegel. Despite some overripe passages it works as lurid melodrama, with Clint showing more acting range than anything else he's done (save perhaps Unforgiven) and Geraldine Page a frightening antagonist.

1. Middle of the Night (1959) 7/10

The story of Breezy (1973), the third movie Clint Eastwood directed, is a ripoff of Middle of the Night.


2. The Naked Kiss (1964) 8/10

Dangerous Crossing (1953) 5/10

I love Jeanne Crain. She is the only good thing about this dumb movie with a laughably ridiculous Rube Goldberg scheme.
