The Ghost Writer 7/10
Third or fourth viewing? Great mysterious and ultra classy first half (with nothing shinny or in your face... very high-end), disappointing and childish second half (the actual investigation as well as the revelation). Still the closest thing we've had from a film noir since Chinatown. Tuco's cameo is cool but not half as cool as in Mystic River.

All That Heaven Allows (1955) - 10/10. Did the colors really look this intense in the cinemas of the time? I'd like to believe so. BD: 10/10.

The Train (1965) - 10/10. All the explosions, derailments, etc. are real, and Burt did all his own stunts. Scofield did all his own acting. The b&w cinematography is to die for. So also the immaculate BD transfer: 10/10. The fawning commentary, on the other hand . . .



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

Al Capone (1959) 4/10
 I only watched this movie cuz Steiger plays Capone; I am a big Steiger fan, and I wanted to see how he did. All I can say is that I know of at least 4 actors who played Al Capone in a movie – Ben Gazzarra (Capone), Robert De Niro (The Untouchables), Rod Steiger (Al Capone), and Jason Robards (The St. Valentines Day Massacre) – all 4 are good or great actors, but none of them did a great job playing Capone.
Fay Spain is laughably atrocious as Capone's girlfriend.

F for Fake (1973) Orson Welles's documentary/video essay about fakes/frauds/phonies gets an 8.5/10.
Love how it's edited. And Orson is interesting to watch even if he'd just be reading the phone book.

Forrest Gump

I've seen most of the movie, in various bits and pieces, but this is the first time I actually watched the whole thing straight beginning to end. (Actually, I watched the first 45 minutes last weekend and then saw the rest this weekend  ;) ) Great movie.


A River Runs Through It

This was like my 15th viewing of one of my all-time favorite movies. And I just discovered a nice interview that Roger Ebert did with Robert Redford when the movie was released http://www.rogerebert.com/interviews/redfords-cast-into-past-a-tale-runs-through-it

L'eclisse (1962) - 10/10. The new CC transfer only gets a 9/10: didn't someone twist the contrast knob just a bit too far? I've heard of Day-for-Night, and even Night-for-Night, but . . . Night-for-Suit?

Happened to watch an interview with hockey legend Mark Messier last night, on YES Network's Centerstage with Michael Kay, Kay asked Messier what his favorite movie was, he said A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT :)

Seven Thieves (1960) Director: Henry Hathaway with a great cast, Edward G. Robinson, Rod Steiger, Joan Collins, Eli Wallach, Alexander Scourby, Michael Dante, Berry Kroeger, Sebastian Cabot. Extremely noticeable processed shots really distracts form the film whether this is a DVD problem or a feature of the original film I don't know, but its really bad.

From IMDb, In Monte Carlo, Theo Wilkins recruits his young protégé Paul Mason - just released from prison - to help him rob the famous casino of $4 million. The plan is straightforward. On the night of the Governor's Ball, Theo will create a distraction in the casino by having one of the team collapse requiring urgent medical attention. During that time Paul and another member of the crew will get the money from the vault. When the ambulance arrives, the money will leave with the sick man.

It's watchable, Joan Collins did a sizzling strip number (taught by Candy Barr) that got cut by the censors, it would have been an obvious extra fot the DVD, but its missing in action. Some good music by Dominic Frontiere, but its an overall miss. 6.5/10 available from Netflix.

just saw another Centerstage interview with a New York sports legend, this time Patrick Ewing (the first favorite athlete I ever had). His favorite movie is To Sir, with Love. I never watched that movie; they once played it on TCM just after Blackboard Jungle, and after seeing BJ, I wasn't in the mood of watching what I figured was probably a similar story again, so I didn't see TSWL. Maybe I'll check it out next time TCM plays it ...
