Heat and Dust (1983) - 9/10. A woman (Julie Christie) goes to India to retrace the steps of her grandmother's sister (Greta Scacchi, in flashback) and has similar experiences. So we get two parallel stories, nicely edited together. Here is the standard trick: a scene from the 1983 story occurs in a distinctive setting; then we see a scene from the 1923 story in the same place. Near the end there is a beautiful bit of superimposition to suggest a point of overlapping between the two tales. Throughout, the photography by Walter Lassally is especially beautiful (the man sure likes his filters!). Great music, too. The new Blu-ray from Cohen does the film justice.

Lost in the Sun (2016)  The story of a small-time crook John, who finds an unlikely accomplice in Louis, a newly-orphaned teenage boy. An entertaining road picture 7/10

Mr. Denning Drives North (1951): John Miles disapproves of his daughter's fiancee Herbert Lom because of his nefarious past, and accidentally kills him during a confrontation. Panicking, he decides to dump the body next to a road hoping it'll be seen as a hit & run accident. But things go awry when the body doesn't get mentioned on the news, and the daughter's new fling, lawyer Sam Wanamaker, takes an interest into the man's disappearance. Solid British thriller with good performances, some nice nice twists and an ending that would not have been allowed if this had been made in Hollywood. 7/10

Another Network UK DVD, another good transfer. And I love the slimcases they use, they take up way less space...

2046 (2004) - 5/10. WKW descends into self-parody, and a parade of Chinese lovelies--Gong Li, Ziyi Zhang, Faye Wong--isn't enough to save the film. Still, making Faye Wong look good shows skill.

Exodus (1960) 7/10

Sal Mineo has terrific supporting performance. Lee J. Cobb very good also. Great score.

The Wages Of Fear aka Le Salaire De La Peur (1953): Yves Montand and 3 others are to drive 2 trucks filled with volatile nitroglycerin down 300 miles of treacherous bad roads and up & down a few mountains. Overly long intro and ridiculous 'ironic' ending but the drive itself is pretty damn tense. 7+/10

Buddy of mine sent me his spare copy of the Criterion blu-ray. Worse things have happened...

Crime d'Amour aka Love Crime (2010): Ludivine Sagnier is the creative right hand of business woman Kristin Scott Thomas who shamelessly uses Sagnier's ideas to advance her own career. But one day Sagnier decides enough is enough, with lethal consequences. Good thriller with an ironic ending. 7+/10

Watched this on Netflix. Brian DePalma did a remake a few years ago called 'Passion'. Will check it sometime to compare.

I'd go an "8" on this.

Murder On The Orient Express (2017): Kenneth Branagh directs and stars as Hercule Poirot who tries to find a murderer among a cast featuring names like Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer, Willem Dafoe, Penelope Cruz and Johnny Depp. It brings nothing new to the table, but I really enjoyed this one for what it is, and wouldn't mind a Death On The Nile movie if Branagh plays Poirot again (clearly hinted at in this one). 8/10

I Love You, Daddy (2017) - 8/10
Louis CK can masturbate all he wants. He is still an excellent filmmaker. (kidding. kinda.) A shame this was cancelled. Maybe it was an fucked up apology, but I'm almost positive that from some of the dialogue, Louis knew exactly what was coming this year when he went into making this. But beyond self-awareness, this is very much a both tribute to and attack of Woody Allen. Stylistically, the movie borrows tons and tons from Allen, while also including a character that is very obviously supposed to be him - with heavy focus on perversion toward younger women. This is used as an interesting device to say a lot about the ethics of parenting, and the strange depths of a father-daughter relationship. And loaded with self-awareness in the questions it raises about separating a person's art from their personal life. The movie is not as 'horrifying, repulsive, etc.' as the critics say - those words are only there because of the New York Times article. It's an incredibly fascinating movie to watch given all the recent news, especially because it was directed, produced, financed, edited by, written, and stars one of the biggest and most controversial names in recent scandals. A poor choice not to release this, in my opinion.

Fusion [MV] by Perfume (2017) - 10/10. Three cities; three performances; one transmission (in 5G). noodles_leone can only dream of such things as he goes about making his lame commercials. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgdASCXJjNk
