Nah, titoli is the guy with the act.

Hard Eight (20th Cent) - 8/10. Watching this last night on FilmStruck I suddenly realized--this is a clever reimagining of Bob le Flambeur! But without the casino caper at the end. Which fits right in with your Late Century Era of Diminished Expectations meme, nicht wahr? Of course, casting Philip Baker Hall was money in the bank. The rest of the cast isn't bad, either--even the awful John C. Reilly is credible in some scenes. Great score (the song under the end credits isn't very good, but at least it signals the fact this is a Christmas movie). All of which brings forth the question: PTA, what happened, man? Where did it all go wrong? I blame PowerRR, of course. Somehow that creepy little shit has been able to psychically influence a potentially great director and rob him of his promise. Some crimes cannot be punished often enough.

Journey Through the Past (1974) - 2/10. Eighty minutes of my life I'll never get back. Not sure what this is supposed to be, but it sure is boring. I like Neil's songs, but I'd be better off with the soundtrack album. It doesn't help that Crosby, Stills, and Nash show up from time to time to share their "wisdom." Stoooopid stoners!

Roxy the Movie (2015) - 8/10. This is more like it--a concert film that's actually a concert film. In 1973 Frank & Co. did 3 nights at the Roxy in LA and produced the legendary Roxy and Elsewhere album. It turns out, though, that the 3 shows were also filmed, but technical problems made it impossible to complete the film at the time. Fast forward to the 21st Century and new technology makes it possible to finally get this thing out. And it's terrific. Some of the musicianship is a wonder to behold (Ruth Underwood is a wonder to behold, and I'm not just talking about her xylophone playing). A lot of great songs here (including some not on the album). I particularly enjoyed "Inca Roads" this time. The show is great for the most part, but audience participation nonsense eventually takes over and the music grinds to a halt. Frank, Frank, shut up--and make everybody else shut up--and play your guitar!

The End of the Tour - 3/5

Inherent Vice - 2/5

I can only imagine that the reaction I had is similar to the one's that people had when watching Spielberg's 1941.

The Revenant - 5/5

Great sagging tits, I agree.

The Queen (2006) 7/10

The House of Windsor and the government of new Prime Minister Tony Blair have to deal with the aftermath of the death of Princess Diana. The queen wants to follow traditions and have no half-mast flag, and no official ceremonies for the deceased, who at the time of her death was no longer part of the royal family. But her inaction creates an uproar among the grief-stricken public.

Hellen Mirren is always great. Lots of other good performances as well.

half-staff is correct. Most of us are not aboard ship.

Half-MAST is the term usually used in UK. Most Brits do not speak American.

Second viewing. Brazil meets Hot Fuzz, with legos (but like, really, really with legos).

The Barefoot Contessa (1954) - 5/10. One of Mank's weaker efforts--glaringly so, as the much better The Bad and the Beautiful--a similar subject similarly treated (characters relate the bio of a Hollywood personality in flashbacks)--was released two years before. OK, B&B was in B&W, and TBC is in Technicolor, so there is some compensation. And Ava Gardner looks fab in Technicolor (as she did in Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, also lensed by the DP for this, Jack Cardiff). And then there's Bogart's genial presence, jollying everything along. But the star power in this can't make up for the lack of passion coming from the director's chair. Too much of the story is told in voice-over: this gets us through scenes quickly at times, but it also dampens the drama to the point of non-existence. At the end we really don't care about the central character or any of the others, and this film really should be a tear-jerker with a tragic finish. Instead, it's just a splashy film with a lot of phony rain.

Fences (2016) Directed by Denzel Washington starring Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Stephen Henderson, Jim Bono, Jovan Adepo, Russell Hornsby, Mykelti Williamson, and Saniyya Sidney. Another SAG Screener. This one is good sort of a The Honeymooners meet A Streetcar Named Desire. 9/10
