Dogtooth (2009) - 5/10
Between this and The Lobster, just not too much a fan of Yorgos.

Dope (2015) - 7.75/10
Fun coming of age movie

Yeah, it's pretty good.

Our Kind of Traitor (2016) - 9/10. The latest John le Carré adaptation--and it's terrific. A Russian mafia guy (Stellan Skarsgård) wants asylum for himself and his family in the UK and he picks Ewan McGregor, a professor of Poetics at London U, as his go-between to MI6. The civilian-in-over-his-head-among-professionals is a formula le Carré has used before, but it's a winner. This production keeps things tense by maintaining a very palpable sense of menace throughout. It's not perfect, though: plot points are often telegraphed, as when a scene lingers on something inconsequential just before something really bad happens. Locations are a lot of fun: London, of course, also Paris, Marrakesh, Bern, and Finland playing the French Alps. We get some very striking photographic compositions. There's also a fight in a dense forest at night that is so well lit you could read a sun-dial, but most of the action is credible. A terrible cameo by le Carré occurs in the Einstein museum in Bern where he is cast as a ticket taker--who does he think he is, Stan Lee? All in all, though, this is a really well-plotted, suspenseful, and satisfying thriller.

Juliette ou la clef des songes / Juliette or The Key of Dreams (1951) - 6/10. An interesting idea for a film: an unhappy man (Gérard Philipe) seeks fulfillment in a dream world, one which may actually exist. The execution is weak, however. The actors end up talking a lot about concepts having to do with this other world; Marcel Carné doesn't really know how to put these ideas over cinematically. Still, the film does provide food for thought. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UTihXELpTmQ

Perfect Friday (1970) Director: Peter Hall  A nice caper yard that stars Ursula Andress, Stanley Baker, and David Warner. Her name should be Ursula Undess for this film 7/10

Two from the Warren Oates retro:

Private Property (1960) - 5/10. Plays like a demented TV show, lots of CUs. Warren and a buddy break into a vacant house that overlooks the pool of a beautiful neighbor they intend to, er, rape. Very creepy. Lots of atmosphere, not much plot.

Kid Blue (1973) - 6/10. Notorious outlaw Kid Blue (Dennis Hopper) decides to go straight and moves to a Texas town called Dime Box and accepts the worst jobs they've got. The sheriff (Ben Johnson) doesn't like the look of the Kid and tells him so, repeatedly. Warren Oates befriends him, as does Warren's wife (Lee Purcell), who has a wandering eye. Eventually the Kid's criminal nature reasserts itself, but the film takes forever to get there. There's also a crazy preacher (Peter Boyle) who spends his free time building a flying machine. Part of the pleasure of the film comes from all the nutty characters. When suddenly they start disappearing without explanation the movie gets a lot less interesting. Suddenly Oates is gone and Ms. Purcell with him. Too bad. Oates is refreshingly nutty (not to say fruity) and Purcell is very easy on the eyes. Purcell did a lot of TV (I first noticed her in a Rockford episode) but she is also famous for appearances in Mr. Majestyk and Big Wednesday. Here she's got a nice Gibson girl look going.

Probably. You do realize how women styled their hair in the 1890s, right? http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=gibson+girl&qpvt=Gibson+girl&qpvt=Gibson+girl&qpvt=Gibson+girl&FORM=IGRE

Pool Of London (1951) Director Basil Dearden stars Bonar Colleano, Susan Shaw, Renée Asherson, Earl Cameron, Moira Lister, Charlie Vernon, and James Robertson Justice. Petty smuggling turns into serious trouble when a diamond heist goes wrong. Some great noir cinematography by Gordon Dines that rivals Night and the City. 7/10

Any British reference these days has to come along with a Brexit joke.

Lets see...

Welcome to the Dollhouse (1995) - 8/10
Very good black comedy from Solondz, whose Happiness is one of my favorite films.

Finding Dory (2016) - 6.5/10
Fun little adventure but not nearly as funny, touching, or original as many Pixar films.

Certified Copy (2010) - 4.5/10
Meh.


probably missed a few other but that sOK

A bit of a John Carpenter kick.

Starman - 9/10
Halloween - 8/10
They Live - 8.5/10
The Fog - 7/10

First viewing of all besides Starman.

La Visita (1964) - 7/10. An aging Roman bachelor (François Périer) goes to the country to meet a woman (Sandra Milo) he's been corresponding with. Both are hoping for romance and changed circumstances (she wants to move to the big city; he wants to get away from urban life). Both are on their best behavior and so misrepresent themselves to each other initially. Everything goes horribly wrong, of course, affording director Pietrangeli the chance to pull any number of gags. Nonetheless, we root for the couple, and there is a certain sweetness operating beneath all the goings on.
