Re: The Snake Pit (1948)

Do we really believe that women are "fulfilled" today by going to college, getting a degree, getting a job, then getting married, having kids, and then spending the rest of her vital years running like a maniac between home, office, meetings, soccer practice, the grocery (she still has to do most of...

Re: A Taste of Cherry (1997)

Wha---??? What a weird, weird film... Hello, all the guy had to do if he wanted to die -- or even be buried with earth -- is drive off any one of those mountain roads he traversed all through the movie... I swear, I thought for sure he'd finally figured out that he could just jump into that pit into...

"Io non ho Paura" (I'm Not Scared)

Just saw this on a tape I recorded last week: WOW...

Please, please, TCM, more wonderful foreign films; I could watch them all day, if they're as good as this one...

Who thinks Michele died at the end? I'll go one further and wonder if Filippo wasn't dead the whole time, as he claimed...

Re: Help identify movie!

No; I'm saying whenever I tape a movie (still using the old VHS and VCR), I always manage to time it wrong and lose parts...

They showed it fairly recently, I think; maybe in March? Seems that when I would've taped it. Yeah; hard to watch in places.

Re: Help identify movie!

Yes, they did! I had it taped and, as always, managed to cut off either the vital beginning or the vital end, so am left scratching my head (it takes me months to get around to watching it)... Reviews on IMDb; a pretty amazing movie...

Help identify movie!

Okay; help, folks. I thought it was called "Malibu"; a 1950s (maybe 40s) nature/animal film -- but not documentary -- in the style of "The Yearling." About a young woman living with her nature writer father in a cabin, possibly in Florida, who adopts an orphaned cougar cub and deer fawn. She vows th...

But Tuesday was Fat!

If I could've managed it, I'd have faked an illness yesterday in order to snuggle in bad all day and evening for that foreign filmfest; what a gift!

Thank goodness I got the whole thing on tape... Er, I think... I hope...

"La Diabolique"

Watched this one on tape the other night; had seen it before, but never noticed all these discrpepancies... They adminster the liquor with the sedative in it, and he orders his wife to remove his shoes... Then his shoes are on again... Then the accomplice orders the wife to remove the shoes... Then ...

The "goodbye to Francie" scene immediately followed Katie telling him about the baby, then squashing his joy at that event by essentially emasculating him by detailing how SHE was going to handle things... I think that was the end of him and that Katie, in effect, "killed him," whether that drove hi...

Definitely when Francie gets the flowers from her father; I lost it there... But when he went to say goodnight to her (the last time), I believe he knew it was "goodbye forever." Can't decide if he commited suicide by standing out in the cold and snow looking for a job until he got pneumonia, but al...

A SUQ; I thought so; pretty hot scene, actually. I don't believe I've EVER seen that in a movie! But then, I don't get around much...

Also, do we think Alice committed suicide or just drove drunk?
