This is excellent, a movie worth watching multiple times. Those are my favorite kinds. The director Martin McDonagh's Seven Psychopaths is great too. His most recent movie, Three Billboards has a fine cast but I'm not so sure about it. A friend, whose movie opinion I trust, didn't like it too much.
Also just watched Scott Pilgrim vs The World. It's a'ite. Fun. Well done. My 13 yr old chose it and it's amusing to see what he picks now that it's not exclusively kiddie movies or superhero movies anymore.
Woke up early & couldn't fall back asleep. Watched this at 4am. The book by Pete Dexter is excellent. I think it's loosely based on his experiences as a journalist for the now dead The Bulletin here in Philly in the 70's. Hoffman is/was a brilliant actor.
Woke up at 3:12am this morn & could not fall back asleep so I watched this. We, the guys, will be watching it for the movie club/thing tomorrow I do once a month. I've probably said this before about certain movies but...I liked it a lot and it deserves multiple viewings. Bresson's directorial style is compelling, kind of realistic, kind of fake.
It's interesting you should say that because Jarmusch took the title from a 1964 novel abt out of control teen agers running wild in England to be adapted into a movie staring Mick & Keith and be directed by Nick Ray of Rebel Without A Cause fame...and for further connections. Early on Jarmusch worked with/for Nick Ray. Jarmusch kinda befriended him at the end of his career.
I forgot how much I loved this movie. Colin Farrell ALMOST makes up for his abhorrent performance in Ask The Dust. But the Double Moustache action taking place on his lower forehead will always pre-empt any attempt at taking him serious....
Bruno from The American Friend & Wings of Desire. Nice. I just saw The Big Lebowski in the theater with the wife. Laughed our asses off. An all-time favorite. I've seen it a million times & haven't gotten bored of it yet.
My copy of Love Streams has been sitting around for a while & I finally got to it this past weekend. Like all Cassavetes movies it is strange, intense, odd, and very well acted. My Criterion edition ahs lots of very interesting extras as well. I dig it.
