Re: Streaming on Criterion in April.

I caught the ending credits of a film. They lasted forever but I stuck to the patience point. Following was "The Cat" a Japanese horror/comedy as I gather. I didn't watch long. //

Re: Streaming on Criterion in April.

Playtime ('76) Tati's film. I've seen it and have the DVD, but there I am hooked. Sort of. But then I gave it up and went back to whatever I was doing before. But it took some effort.

Re: I Just Watched...

Since we don't have an "autosenselessor" that's not a problem. Or do we have one? This word in quotes was coined by our fine friend but lamentably absent MissWonderly. //// we do have one, that's why I made it one word portmanteau style. Man, I hope MISS WONDERLY is doin okay out there, w...

Re: I Just Watched...

I had the "Elaine at The English Patient " experience with Pirates of the Caribbean . People had low expectations of the film, based as it was on a Disney theme park ride, but because it was better than that, suddenly it became a phenomenon. When I saw it, I was expecting a really enterta...

Re: Noir Alley

I liked Nancy Coleman. She was not spectacular, not even that good but not that bad either. I had never seen her before and at least she was a fresh face who was certainly passable.
