It looks like Johnny Hallyday's recent passing has prompted this release also:

Hitchcock/Truffaut - 8/10
It probably doesn't work well if you haven't read the book. If you have (like you should), you'll enjoy this documentary that loosely tells the story of the making of the book but mainly focuses on interventions by Fincher, Scorsese, Assayas, Linklater and others, commenting Sir Hitch's work as a whole as well as particular scenes. A bit all over the place, but fascinating and inspiring.
I got it on iTunes but it's available for free here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kE0nxv-asq4

The Making Of Martin Scorsese's The Goodfellas - 8/10
Lots of insights by De Niro, Liotta, Bracco and of course Pileggi, Schoonmaker and Winkler.
It came as a bonus with the restaured version I have (along with 2 Bugs Bunny cartoons, weird) but you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkNIOuZPXSc

Agree on The Counselor being a better title. That movie is a strange one. It has this all star cast but the script is by Cormac McCarthy, a guy whose dialogue doesn't necessarily work on the screen, so its a weird watching experience listening to this nonsense and yet its still watchable. I think about that movie and the fact that they managed to turn a rap lyric such as 'They ain't trippin' on me, they wanna fuck my car' into an actual scene involving Cameron Diaz, who I agree is probably miscast, fucking the windshield of a car. What a weird movie. I should probably rewatch it.

Yeah, very weird. Interesting note about McCarthy, I think we agree here.

The U.S. blu comes with both cuts of the film and a very interesting bonus feature, the extended cut with commentary by Didley that temporarily exits the film to do EPK-type things every time such things are cued by a location or a character or whatever. It sure makes for a long evening!

EPK-type things?

Good Time (2017): Robert Pattinson and his mentally handicapped brother (& co-director) Bennie Safdie rob a bank. But Safdie ends up in police custody, and Pattinson needs to find money to bail him out before he gets sent to prison. Good, gritty movie, and a strong performance by Pattinson. 7+/10

Road To Perdition (2002): Tom Hanks is a hitman for mobster Paul Newman, but after his son witnesses a business deal gone bad and as a result his wife and other kid get murdered, he wants revenge. Great cinematography and an enjoyable movie, but I've never been a fan of Tom Hanks and Jude Law overacts as an assassin for hire. 7/10

Been meaning to go see 2017's Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool about the final days of Gloria Grahame (Annette Benning) in the cinema for a while but somehow never got around to it. A local cinema did a one-off screening last night tho, so I went for it. Based on a book by her last lover, theater actor Peter Turner (Jamie Bell), I found it a very touching movie with great performances from Benning and Bell, and I also loved the nostalgic use of rear projection in the flashback scenes (even if it might've also been due to budget constraints hah). Stupid of me to not go see it sooner, but glad I still managed to see it in a proper cinema. 8/10

Secret Beyond The Door (1948) A woman's gothic noir, Joan Bennett in a partial flashback recounts right before she makes her wedding vows exactly how she got into the situation she's in. The title card is very Daliesque, and so are the images that accompany the opening voice over narration (this is only the second noir I've seen where a woman does the voice over, the other being Claire Trevor in Raw Deal (1948)). There are numerous sequences with very stylistic images and others that also feel quite surreal. Bennett is a wealthy woman who inherited her fortune after the death of her brother.

The story is about the architect (who's major income is derived from a magazine he publishes) that she meets and marries in Mexico. Arriving back at his upstate NY estate, she discovers that he is a widower and has a young son he never told her about. He lives in a mansion with a new wing he built that contains a sort of macabre museum of the actual rooms (yes he bought dismanteled them and reassembled them) where murders have taken place. It's some mania he has about how the room effects events in peoples lives. He also lives with his weird sister Anne Revere (Clara Mills in Fallen Angel), and a woman with a half burned face. There is one room however that he always keeps locked and she is determined to find the secret behind it.

The house will remind folks of gloomy Collinwood from Bennett's Dark Shadows years with it's locked off West wing, even the son of the architect is named David.

One more memory jog is provided by Natalie Schafer, Bennett's friend Edith Potter, doing her same priggish schtick she made iconically famous later on as Lovey Howell on Gilligan's Island. (PS she does that same schtick in another noir with Joan Crawford in Female on the Beach (1955)). 6/10

Ready Player One - 6/10 (More precisely: 40% 6/10, 40% 3/10, 20% 12/10)
Watch it. If you don't, don't try to make me think you care about cinema ever again, you lying piece of hypocrisy.
Also, watch it in IMAX 3D or it doesn't count.

Secret Behind The Door

It's Secret Beyond The Door  ;)

I enjoyed it more than you, a solid 7/10 for me... It's a minor Fritz Lang movie for sure, with a miscast Michael Redgrave... But Joan Bennett is great & gorgeous in this movie, and I love her whispered voice-overs. Together with the beautiful cinematography and surreal imagery, they make it a very atmospheric movie.
