The Fallen Idol - 7/10 - In between Carol Reed's two masterpieces he made this odd little thriller. A crime drama from a child's perspective is a fantastic idea, and the early scenes of build-up and adult misunderstanding work marvelously. Unfortunately as there's no crime the drama evaporates in the last half hour.
Also, as the child actor is insufferable, my interest evaporates in the first 10 minutes.

Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974) 10/10

What a great movie.

-- the boy probably knows a little too much for an 11 year old kid (certainly FAR more than I knew at that age), but hey, maybe that's how it is in some cultures

-- it's hilarious seeing Harvey Keitel as a cowboy, with the half Brooklyn, half attempted-cowboy accent  ;D

-- I thought the boy's friends was another boy... until I recognized that it was Jodie Foster. She looks and sounds just like a boy here

NYFF 50, Final Day:

Richard III (1955) 6/10. First viewing in DCP. Wow, like a Vistavision print restored to its original glory. As Marty says, "Vistavision was the IMAX of its day." Marty was on hand to introduce the film and provide us with nuggets of wisdom such as that. He also told us about his movegoing childhood (who knew?). But anyway--the great man, in the room with me! (He was much shorter than I'd imagined him). As Marty was arguing for the greatness of the film, though, I noticed he couldn't help talking mainly about Henry V. And the reason is obvious: Henry is a great film, and part of the reason it's so great is that it had a long gestation. Olivier gets all the credit for the film, but he actually arrived on the project late, after much of the concept had already been worked out. Now, when it came time to do Richard, 10 years later, Olivier had no more idea of what to do than he had earlier, so Richard is just a rehash of things better done in the first film. Except now in Vistavision. So color and clarity are exemplary; drama and pacing, not so much.

Afterwards I went home and watched the first hour of Stuart Burge's Othello (1965, starring Olivier)--a much better film. But then, it had a real director.

His security detail was pretty thick, so, no. Nothing compared to Denzel's, of course, but they did the job. At the beginning some woman interrupted Marty by pulling off her top and complaining about the city's social services (or something) but she was quickly subdued and taken away. Marty deadpanned: "Shakespeare would've loved it. I mean, really. Ya know, the groundlings?" Not sure what the great man meant, but, like, I was there! In the same room! Did I mention that he was shorter than I'd imagined?

How can anyone complain about New York City's social services? That's like going to Texas and complaining about gun control.

Odd Man Out. I may even prefer that to The Third Man.

Uh. . . maybe I didn't communicate this well,  but I definitely got the feeling she was a nut.

Did you tell him you post on a message board where everyone is really anal and hates most of his movies and only want to suck Leone/Peckinpah's cock?

I actually recently saw two Scorcese movies that are not the as well known as Taxi Driver/Raging Bull/Goodfellas, and I LOVED LOVED LOVED THEM: Who's That Knocking at My Door (1968), and Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974)

There are some other films of his that I didn't love (or didn't understand) when I saw them years ago and I am gonna re-watch 'em soon. But I have to say, when you consider all of Scorcese's contributions to the world of cinema -- not just his work as a filmmaker, but as a film preserver (including the OUATIA restoration), historian, cineaste, etc. I gotta say that he is one of my favorite film people people alive

p.s. Peckinpah sucks

p.p.s. I'll accept any response other than "you just don't understand his movies." You can go suck Peckinpah's cock and get the clap

Do you mean the Jeremy Renner thing?

Yes, the Bourne Legacy, to be exact. I got confused with the French title: "Jason Bourne: l'Héritage"

Yeah, I did. He told me he's been sucking Kubrick's cock since he was 12.

Gilda (1946) 8/10

Rita Hayworth was sooooo much hotter with blonde hair, eg. in The Lady from Shanghai (although unfortunately, her hair is short in TLFS). Is there any movie in which she has long blonde hair?
