  • Blithe Spirit 1945

    ★★★½ Watched 15 Feb, 2015

    A gorgeously colored, fun stage play adaptation that's tone toward death is unusual for a country wrapped up in a war.

  • The Insider 1999

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Feb, 2015

    Looking at early scenes of MANHUNTER, a select few scenes from THE KEEP, and the paranoid scenes here, it shows how Mann handles thrilling horror moments very well by always building tension and releasing minimal moments of relief.

    Wigand is the anti Mann protagonist, defined by destroying his work and too heavy a reliance on his family. He and his family are held, sometimes purposely in a frustrating way compared to Pacino who falls right into the Mann's man character.

  • Cop 1988

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Feb, 2015 2

    -"Why can't they fly, Dutch? Why can't they fly like us?"
    -"No wings my friend. Nothing they do by themselves is much fun, they gotta have a man or it doesn't matter"

    As the criminals get more violent the detective's code becomes more corrupt. "Innocence kills" and Phillip Marlowe got redefined by the Reagan presidency and Hopkins is the product at the end of it.

  • The Party Animal 1985

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Feb, 2015

    "I can do without the cham, just give me the pain"

    A film as voyeuristic as the main character.
