And btw cj, the women are not all unattached. The woman in Florida who tells Hackman the bullshit story about the shit-eating alligators and her nipples staying hard for half an hour, she is married. And Melanie Griffith has a boyfriend (James Woods) yet neither of them like keeping their clothes on when Hackman is around. Not the old movie starlet, not the teenager, not the wife. No one. Not even Hackman's wife who looks like a man in that awful 70's haircut.

I didn't get the impression that Paula was married to Tom Iverson she was just shackin' up with him from what I remember. Melanie Griffith was to quasi quote Paula, after any thing with a dick, lol. Like I said they are ALL fucked up, what part of all fucked up don't you understand?Huh

Horace and Pete (2016) - 10/10
Louis CK's 10-episode play comes to an end. It was a flawless, out of the blue masterpiece and one of the finest pieces of art in who knows how long. I've been recommending this to everyone I know to almost no avail. Please... somebody watch this. It'll cost you $31 in total and you'll get to own every episode to watch again, again, again, and again.

Mad Men Season 1 - 9.5/10

Weiner perfectly understands that TV should be all about the minutiae. You know you have a winner when this show couldn't work better as a feature narrative. My only knock, and it's a small one, is that I was expecting music to play a larger role, but I assume Weiner didn't want people to view Mad Men as some nostalgia ride or something. It couldn't be any further from that.

I'm sure most of you guys have seen this show but for those who haven't I couldn't recommend this any more. I'm a couple episodes into season 2 and it's somehow better.

I went through the first season of Mad Men last December. Can't say I'm a fan.

I couldn't even make to the end of season one.

I made it through all of Mad Men ...it was...well, all right. The last 7 episodes were excellent, comparable to the ending of a classic novel.

Horace and Pete, though....

A Rage In Harlem (1991)Director Bill Duke, stars: Forest Whitaker, Gregory Hines, Robin Givens, Danny Glover, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, a fun Crime -Comedy film, that been on some Neo Noir lists.

The director and cinematographer Toyomichi Kurita have a better handle on Noir than Devil In A Blue Dress. Nice sequences with Screamin' Jay Hawkins. The production values are top shelf, wish it would have been more humorous/picaresque than comedy, it's sort of unbalanced swinging from serious to comedy, as is still a 7/10

The ALL part. That's what I'm saying. Some women are sexually frustrated/deviant. That's fine. But not ALL. That's what I am saying - having every woman in the movie like that is IMO a little dumb.

Maybe I just grew up in too conservative a setting and still harbor naive views about people's sex lives. But I guess having normal people wouldn't make for a very interesting noir, eh?  Wink

Yes it is. Only the 6th season is a bit weaker, offers a bit more routine instead inspiration. I'm just watching the 7th season, and try to stretch it over the whole year (but I have already watched half of it), cause it is very sad that it ends, and it is sad not to follow the protagonists over another decade as they get older and dumber and so on.

Don't forget how every woman in the movie - young, old, and everywhere in between - basically walks up to the guy and spreads their legs and says PLEASE FUCK ME. Seems like a boy's fantasy, but had me rolling my eyes throughout. Is there a single female character whose goal in life isn't to fuck the detective?

An eye rolling drink mostly indicates an interesting and deeply realistic movie. So now it is settled, Night Moves is a great film devoid of cliches, apart from the noir stuff, without which it couldn't be a comment on noirs.

No it probably wouldn't, lol, did you ever know anyone who ever hired a private detective?

Funny. I was just going say that it becomes better and better, the sixth season being the pinnacle (and the 7th a good but lesser season). When I watched the 6th season, I remember thinking that it must be one of the best existentialist works in the history of moving images.

The Fortune (1975) Director Mike Nichols stars Stockard Channing, Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty
 
The Mann-Act (disallowing women to be transported across State lines for immoral reasons) brings a married man (Beatty) to devise a scheme for taking his upper-class girlfriend (Channing) an heiress, away with him... he simply has her marry his unmarried buddy (Nicholson).
 
They move to California and it doesn't take long for Nicholson to lust for the her and he soon consummates his "marriage" to her for real, while Beatty is out working as a car salesman.
 
A fight follows during which she comes to realize the two men are really only after her money, so she threatens to give it all away to charity. That is the catalyst for the plan to do away with her. These two incompetents plan out another scheme so that they can get her fortune. The ridiculous shenanigans they go through trying to accomplish this is very amusing.
 
A possible future classic. I caught it on Movies! TV so it was somewhat censored and with commercials, will have to get a better copy, a 7/10 it may go up or stay at that.

Interesting, but in that case the 6th season was repeatedly called weaker compared to the predecessors, which still takes it above most other series.

Falling Down[/b - 7.5/10 - Michael Douglas loses his job and goes nuts. Sort of a modern Taxi Driver without the subtlety, but fairly entertaining.
