    Lookalikes?

    Alfred Lunt and CNN'S Jake Tapper
  8. Thin Lizzy anything with John Sykes on guitar from 1981-83 I think including Life the live lp with a stunning Cold Sweat other wise 1976-77 Jailbreak as for the MC5 I had Back in the USA,Kick out the Jams and High Time,the last one is really bad, first 2 are allright but nothing special imo but many bands during that time were better than the MC5...

    Ed Wood (1994)

    Seen it when it came out,great black & white.
  10. Berthe Morisot 2012 by Caroline Champetier with Marine Delterme released in Japan but to tv in Europe.Beautiful film on a section of the life of impressionist painter Berthe Morisot-covers about 10-15 years- she was the first woman admitted in the original club of the impressionist group her relation with Edouard Manet is extensive in the film.Very good to know her work and style,i looked for her on the internet,quite exquisite work.8/10
  11. I hope it is ok to recommend a film released before 2017. Noyade Interdite 1987 aka Widow's Walk from Pierre Granier-Deferre with Philippe Noiret,Guy Marchand, Marie Trintignant and others.Very good cop movie,2 cops who do not like each other are in a beach resort,4 murders in 4 days.a genuine surprise ending prefigures a big hit (1991) by several years.You will guess it when you will see it..8/10
  12. I read the book The Kid Stays In The Picture many years ago and it is a fascinating read

    Marie Antoinette

    Marie Antoinette ils ont jugés la Reine 2018 incredibly good film made for tv but probably released in European countries.You discover how the trial was tricked, her lawyers were arrested etc based on newly discovered original period documents.Very good cast if some viewers understand French or with subtitles if available.I highly recommends.8/10

    Ginger Baker 1939 to 2019

    I checked Wiki like you did,the truth finally came out around 2013,for more than 40 years Baker never denied the thing(unless he mentioned it in his bio book in 2009) It was what we could call now an urban legend but it endured and can be found on many websites even, now his daughter Nettie looked a lot like the 11 year old on the cover which helped the story I presume.

    Ginger Baker 1939 to 2019

    I totally agree with you,i did not see your post before I posted mine, he influenced every rock drummer and he influenced the ones who are now an influence...

    Ginger Baker 1939 to 2019

    Just found out about it,he was my favorite drummer,Cream was the only artist I was born too early to have seen in concert,i saw everybody else many times but not Cream.When a friend of mine called me up & told me they were playing MSG in October 2005 in NYC,I decided to go right away,first concerts in 5 years for me,after like 2000 shows I 'retired' in early 2000 but for Cream i decided to go all the way to NYC. I saw the last 2 shows,liked them very much,Jack Bruce had health problems but they played very well.Clapton wrote in his bio he did the gigs for the 2 others as they were not as lucky as he was financially.The 3 shows grossed about $11 millions a lot of $ at the time,they must have net 5$ millions.Ginger Baker was a jazz drummer,one of first to use a double bass drum in concert-I think Keith Moon used it also-the era of the drum solos started,few were good at it.He made it till 80..which is amazing he was a heavy boozer and had a severe heroin addiction.On the cover of the Blind Faith only album, the nubile little girl on the cover was his daughter,the cover was changed for American release, many years later it was restored in Canada .A very good musician.The last 2 Cream concerts are still the last shows I went to-14 years! now i'am really retired from rock shows...
  19. La Dentelliere 1976 aka the Lacemaker by Claude Goretta excellent drama with a young isabelle Huppert -23 then-with altready 25 films under her belt at the time,she delivered a masterful performance. 8.5/10

    Paul Muni the anti movie star

    Jack Warner to Hal Wallis on Paul Muni about Pasteur :Who would want to see a movie about a chemist?” or the New York office “Who'd want to see a picture about pasteurized milk? And after the release Warner said:Every time Paul Muni parts his beard and looks through a microscope, we lose a million dollars.".

    Lee Grant

    Lee Grant in her prime,at around 40-45.Beautiful woman indeed...
  23. I remember something Gene Hackman said' I wanted to do meaningful films,i did Scarecrow and it died-1973.After that one I looked at the paycheck ONLY. Hackman turned down many good movies for money reasons, I have 1 or 2 films of his to see as I am a completist.He did many turkeys believe me like Loose Cannons,Welcome to Mooseport etc.I agree with Scorcese I will never see a Marvel hero movie-no interest at all,but I will see Joker as it will be different,it will probably have a Oscar or Golden Globe buzz.If so I will watch the Golden Globes only if Phoenix is nominated as I have no interest in watching the overrated Tom Hanks receiving the De Mille Award...
  24. Les Risques du Métier 1967 by André Cayatte an excellent director,one of his best films,movie début of Jacques Brel,an excellent performance,teacher accused by students.8/10
  25. La **** 1984 directed by Christine Pascal with Isabelle Huppert and Richard Berry.Little known movie Huppert is a femme fatale for 2 men,1 ex cop the other a mob boss.As usual excellent acting by Berry and Huppert,a modern film Noir, I highly recommend.
