  • One from the Heart 1982

    ★½ Watched 31 Oct, 2014

    I had always been interested in this film. The movie after Apocalypse Now. I mean how do you even have another movie after that? With Godfather, The Conversation, Godfather Part 2, and Apocalypse Now all made in one decade, its admittedly pretty hard to follow up that in a new decade.

  • Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory 2011

  • The People vs. Larry Flynt 1996

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Aug, 2013

    With The People vs. Larry Flynt being my third film into Milos Forman's so far excellent filmography I've found a similar threads throughout his works, primarily in his protagonists' desire to question and change and push the envelope of the worlds around them. With Jack McMurphy in Cuckoo's Nest he was pushing the insane asylum to its limit, and in Man on the Moon Andy Kaufman was taking comedy and entertainment above and beyond where people thought it could go.…
