  1. 3 Women (1977); dir. Robert Altman (4/5 stars) *starring Shelley Duvall, Sissy Spacek, Janice Rule. Words are practically escaping me at the moment; I enjoyed all the performances in this and am glad to have liked yet another Altman film. I really like Janice Rule also; I think she was definitely an underrated actress (I recently saw her in "The Chase" with Brando, and Bell Book and Candle 1958). ^^Here is a still of Rule in the Twilight Zone episode entitled "Nightmare as a Child." ^^
  2. Joan Crawford as, and in, "Mildred Pierce" (1945) Bette Davis in "All About Eve" (1950) Elizabeth Taylor in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" (1966)
  3. oh wow! Another person who loves "They Shoot Horses, Don't They" and "Up the Down Staircase!" I haven't encountered anyone on here who loves both of those; how rad. I found myself quite impressed with Sandy Dennis in "Staircase," and have been meaning to check out more of her work. I will share some of my favorites as well (in no particular order) Welcome to the message boards! 12 ANGRY MEN (1957) I find this to be a masterclass in acting as well as writing and directing; the performances are all believably stellar and it does a great job of being engaging despite the one-setting
  4. Lynch co-wrote this with someone else; full of anecdotes of his childhood and his road to making movies; I've only read a bit, but it is quite engaging thus far.
  5. I am a serial polygamist when it comes to books, so a few that I am currently reading: The Heart is a Lonely Hunter- Carson McCullers Play as it Lays- Joan Didion Room to Dream- David Lynch One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest- Ken Kesey
  6. has it really been almost 6 years since i posted this, boy, how times change. As of right now, it's 1. Cate Blanchett 2. Julianne Moore 3. Allison Janney
  7. A lot of my young film club friends are really into 1958's Vertigo for some reason; I like to show people "Strangers on a Train," myself.
  8. is this the one with Gene Hackman? If so, it is already high up on my priority list.
  9. Cotton Comes to Harlem (1970) *Number 1/26 for Criterion Neo-Noir Collection* I had never heard of this film before a few days ago, upon checking the new additions to the Criterion Channel website, but this was more fun than I had previously anticipated. The film follows a duo of detectives who are searching for a cotton bale in which a large sum of stolen money is hidden. These two detectives are great; I really enjoyed the two of them. There were a couple shootouts, some comedic moments, and some.... shall we say... bare necessities on display (not that I mind; I just don't think I'm
  10. Kind of a similar topic, but the Criterion Channel is currently offering a 26-film "Neo-Noir" collection; several movies from the 70s, 80s, and present day. I am very excited to watch all 26 (minus the four I've already seen).
  11. A Place in the Sun (1951) I had a fairly good time with this drama; I understand the times in which it was produced and released, but I wish they had gone a little deeper with some of the plot-lines. All in all, a decent watch; I am quickly regaining my love for Elizabeth Taylor. Harvey (1950) Jimmy Stewart is one of the most charismatic and charming people who have ever graced the screen (in my opinion), and this was certainly no exception. There were parts of this that genuinely made me laugh out loud; Jesse White as the male orderly as the hospital, really stood out to me
  12. @ everyone: I'm afraid to tell you all this, but I just watched Citizen Kane for the very first time last night, and I did not love it... There were certainly moments I enjoyed, but I think I hyped it up too much in my own brain, so when I finally watched it, I was underwhelmed. This film is certainly not without merit, though. I can see how it is widely regarded as one of the best films of all time.
  13. I just concluded my 12th watch of Bogdanovich's "Noises Off" (1992)... I have no words to defend my actions, other than this movie cheers me up and is a good distraction. Plus, what a cast: Michael Caine, Carol Burnett, Julie Hagerty, Christopher Reeve, Marilu Henner, John Ritter, Nicollete Sheridan...
  14. i love anna kendrick! i think she is quite gifted, especially comedically.
