    Killers of the Flower Moon

    This is one of those "so it sounds like I hated it but I'm telling you I liked it!" scenarios.

    Because of the hype train, I find some of my thoughts on this film aren't really about the film itself but a bunch of other things. Suffice it to say, I could write a book about how film press (let alone film Internet) is a necessarily evil (at best, perhaps) and even though I think Killers of the Flower Moon…

Story involves schmucky wannabe actor who goes to auditions pulling guns as a practical joke, getting involved with your average mystery girl. Suddenly someone has put millions of dollars in his bank account and people start dying. There's the…

    Catching up with Bergman 16/20

    Elliot: Hi. I'm Elliot Gould. Is this a Bergman movie? It seems I'm in Sweden.

    Bibi: Oh, yes hello, we're two Swedish actors who have worked with Ingmar for more than twenty years, let's speak English for a while

    E: Okay, um. Here's a line for you, Bibi: I love you

    B: You do?

    E: Yes

    B: I probably love you too

    E: That's fine.

    B: I mean I'm not sure. I'm pregnant?

    E: Sorry,…
