Kelly Macdonald who appeared in, No Country For Old Men with Tommy Lee is also in this movie. It mostly takes place South of I-10, so lots of great scenery of swamps and what not......speaking of, I will be in New Orleans next week.

Its based loosely on a book by James Lee Burke, a really good series about Robicheaux...

Last night I finished Hobo With A Shotgun. "You have you whole life ahead of you, I'M JUST A HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN". absolutely not for children or sensitive types.

When returning Electric Mist earlier, I saw Hobo With A Shotgun......is it worth my time?

District 9:

The acting was terrible, like fodder for MST3K bad, but the effects and production was fairly decent. I generally despise CGI oriented movies, I'd love to see somebody get some balls and make an old James Cameron puppets/sets/make-up movie rather than a James Cameron 2.0 CGI disaster..

The cop in la confidential is the one played by Russell Crowe. A thug with a badge, effectively. My general rule of thumb is the less I'd condone their actions in real life, the more I'll like them on screen - although the older I get the more I wouldn't mind the idea of a few real life Popeyes patrolling the streets of London.

Another obvious candidate for top cop is 'Dirty' Harry Callahan.

Completely agree. One of Scorsese's most underrated films, IMO. Paul Newman is brilliant. It'd make a great double bill with Hard Eight.

It calls for another watch, but it was pretty inspiring. Catherine Deneuve is wonderfully complex in this.

I have to say I find that film deathly boring. It's all very well done, and all that, but Christ is it slow.

i think maybe i'll side with whit sillman re: the discreet charm (ha ha ha).

but don't miss simon of the desert! hilarious, as i recall.

Like District 9, this is one of those movies where the fantastic production and effects almost make up for the absolute shit acting and casting. However, I will say this movie is better than District 9 because it had (a) less characters in general so less opportunities for bad acting; (b) had less dialogue per character than D9 so again, less opportunities for bad acting; (c) relied more so on scenery, setting, and effects than the actors, and so in this regard was visually brilliant. If you had just shown us a few scenes from this movie without any of the acting, like some of the panorama shots or wide-outs, you might have been fooled into thinking it was made by somebody decent. After all, what would the world do late-nights or boring weekend mid-afternoons without terrible movies on television to watch? What would TV be without these movies? It is synchronicity and a delightful survival of the fittest adaptation. Humans are crazy. Our flowers and mating dances are in actuality such shit movies and television. Our dance of survival is much less mystifying than the birds of paradise, but altogether more epic in scale. I mean, that movie must have cost millions (they're saying $90,000,000) of dollars and employed a thousand people.

I like Bunuel too and agree that he's up there with the greats. I've just never been able to get into Belle De Jour.

Back to Colo(u)r of Money, besides Paul Newman's performance, I love the dialogue, which was written by probably my favourite contemporary novelist, Richard Price (The Wanderers, Bloodbrothers, Clockers, etc). He's regularly called on by Hollywood to provide gritty, streetwise dialogue and sometimes writes for The Wire and is probably the only screenwriter today that I actively follow. If he's involved, even a crappy movie (say American Gangster) is guaranteed to have a few great lines. Very much a dive bar Billy Wilder.

Not everything Bunuel made is available, but of the dozen or so I've seen, none have disappointed. Oh, I suppose he repeats his themes a lot, particularly male jealousy, but big whoop.
-----
Zero Dark Thirty was so much better the second time. Kind of genius in its own way. First time, I thought it was cold and devoid of normal human emotion. Now I see that as its strength. Almost any other director would've made it more pulse-pounding and "action-y", and I think it took great control to simply tell the story without jerking the audience around.

Anyone else see it?

i forgot who the fuck didn't like it (apparently tons of people, judging by the imdb ratings) but this shit was brilliant, gorgeous, extraordinary, delicious---

 


cosmopolis

really, i think i get why so many people don't like it-- you have to be familiar with, or at least amenable to cronenberg's language, methods, obsessions. it pulls elements from things as far away as existenz and the italian machine (one of his early shorts) and dead ringers and crash...

it's "heavy" too-- it demands you think instead of just see--add some jazz drums and intertitles and it could be masculin-feminin (ha).

fantastic. extraordinary. i enjoyed it immensely. i want to watch it again right now.

K so I think one thing we all seem to agree on is Scorcese rules. So top 5 films by him?

In no order for me it's

1)Taxi Driver
2)Raging Bull
3)King Of Comedy
4)Shutter Island
5)Mean Streets

It's admittedly De Niro heavy but bite me. Two notable mentions for me is The Departed and Kundun.
