a good actress can play a weird character without grating on the viewer

Without grating on the average viewer. With nuts like you, who knows?

what's considered "average" when it comes to art? Do you care about "average" in deciding whether you like something?  ;)

 I gotta admit that after seeing her in Side Street - in which she delivers maybe the worst performance in movie history - LITERALLY - I have a thing against her. No doubt.

Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence - 8/10 - I suspect even Titoli could spot the gay subtext in this one.

THE WAY WE WERE 8.5/10 ..... sadly, there was no gay subtext in this one. Perhaps I'll catch it with repeated viewings

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) - 6/10. IMAX. So, this Ryan guy (Chris Pine) is working on Wall St., but he's also working for the CIA. In the middle of the day he decides he needs to meet his agency contact, and apparently the place for clandestine mid-day Manhattan meet-ups is Film Forum! We get a nice exterior of the FF's marquee, but weirdly there's only one movie playing. It's Sorry, Wrong Number, and that's interesting 'cause the FF did just recently have a Stanwyck retrospective. But then we get this interior shot of Ryan in the theater--and Drink, you're gonna love this--it's got stadium seating, massive leg room, ultra-comfy chairs, and a decent-sized screen (we weren't there long enough to get a bead on the sound system)!!! Well, the only response to this scene is "Bravo Sierra." And that pretty much sums up my feeling about the film as a whole. But, for an extremely formulaic techno-thriller, it was kinda entertaining.

Io la conoscevo bene (1965) - 9/10. An amazing lead performance (Stefania Sandrelli's) in an amazing film (Antonio Pietrangeli's). Only the ending disappoints. The restoration seems flawless: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVkGVdG8Ktk

BABY DOLL 7.5/10 ..... The acting is terrific. The dinner scene at the end is hilarious

Baby Doll, just like A Face in the Crowd, is a Kazan film I clearly prefer to On the Waterfront

Nooooooo.

IMO, his greatest movie was A Streetcar Named Desire, followed by On the Waterfront... I've also seen A Face in the Crowd, Splendor in the Grass, Gentleman's Agreement, Pinky, Panic in the Streets, America America, Baby Doll, East of Eden, and Viva Zapata!

I's have to search through this thread to find my ratings of all those movies.... but the only one that I remember not liking was East of Eden.

Bartleby (1972) - 7/10 - Herman Melville's Bartleby the Scrivener strikes me as one of the least likely candidates for cinematic adaptation. Yet I'm aware of at least four movie versions. This version updates to modern London, stars Paul Scofield and John McEnery and features some neat direction, so there's some interest beyond the rather awkward attempts to literalize such a symbolic story. So if you're dying to see Bartleby's existential futility onscreen, this may be the one to catch. Unless, of course, you'd prefer not to.
