I got a lot of watching in this week – including a lot of classics. Hockey and basketball playoffs are about to begin, so maybe some small part of me thought it was time to stockpile some cinema…
…like a squirrel hoarding nuts for the winter.
Since much of my attention will likewise be turning to the new and the nonfiction, a lot of what I’ve been soaking up has been both classic and narrative.
Variety is the spice of life, right?
I would say more about this week’s tally, but I have a Malick film to write about this evening and I’m going to need a little bit more brainpower for that one than usual.
More soon, I promise.
Here’s the week at hand…
THE ZOOKEEPER’S WIFE – The world needs more Chastain.
Streaming/Blu-Rays/DVD’s I’ve Never Seen
REFLECTIONS IN A GOLDEN EYE – Sweet lord, that walk up the staircase…
THE BLUE GARDENIA – I am loving Noir Alley, folks!
THE ROMAN SPRING OF MRS. STONE – Warren Beatty trying to do an Italian accent goes about as well as you’d expect.
DE PALMA – I can’t help but feel like the man was a teeny bit full of himself talking about his own work for 100 minutes.
REPO MEN – I’m beginning to enjoy my weekly doses of trash.
THE YOUNG GIRLS OF ROCHEFORT – So now then, about LA LA LAND…
Streaming/Blu-Rays/DVD’s I’ve Seen Before
PETE’S DRAGON – I feel the urge to adopt a dog…
PUBLIC ENEMIES – Underrated.
THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE – Lana Turner’s intro scene in this film might be one of the greatest in film history.
EVERYBODY WANTS SOME!! – Still good (Bob), not great (Bob).
