    I dunno. I like that scene from The Godfather - can't a movie just have ONE obvious shot like this? Some movies can be littered with them - and it works because of the movie's style/tone. I think...

    I re-rented The Loveless from Netflix DVD recently. This film was Bigelow's college thesis as I recall and led to Dafoe being "found" via Walter Hill. I mentioned elsewhere I think it played as a...

    The school scenes fit in with a 50K population city. Building size, class size, etc... It's just the way the series was filmed that makes it feel smaller. In FWWM you get a better sense of its actual...

    I'm with Skitch, Pop and Duke on this one. I love the culture of Southern Cali that it portrays. I can't recall a movie that shows that place as well as this film does.

    A lot of the appeal to me of older movies is to travel back in time and try to empathize with older cultures, psyches, and values. I'm interested in understanding how we got to where we are today -...

    Bresson's characters are like empty vessels we pour ourselves into (that's a compliment) - and Refn hasn't done anything great since his Pusher films way back when.

    I don't know - I think they can be. This screenplay was awful though. A very mediocre film - and that excruciatingly boring long fight sequence at the end.

    I thought Driving Miss Daisy would be watchable since Morgan Freeman plays a major role. I was wrong.

    Looks like I've been watching some Oscar winners lately. Terms of Endearment (1983, James L. Brooks) is a pretty decent film. Debra Winger and Holly Hunter (Broadcast News - another Brooks films) are...

    Couldn't get past the first 20 minutes of Chariots of Fire. My biggest issue I think was a total lack of characterization - of anyone.

    Watched Santa Sangre again. Why don't cinematrogaphers roll the camera - I can't think of any other movie where the camera rolls in a scene. It's a very effective and disorientating effect.
