620ffe92a9c59.image.png

2:45 a.m. Judgment at Nuremberg (1961).  All star cast in this powerful Stanley Kramer film. 

Of interest to some (if you can find it!) may be the stellar new documentary and my pick for the best film of 2021, Getting Away With Murder(s) by David Wilkinson.  It features one of the prosecutors from this trial.

Since you pick it as best film of 2021, then you must have seen it. So, where did you see it?

BAFTA.  But I have not been able to find it on disc.  It may be on streaming - somewhere ??

Not surprisingly, it wasn't even nominated for Best Documentary.  My take is that most people don't wish to watch films about the holocaust.  But this one was extraordinary and came at it from a different and new angle as its title suggests.

I started looking when I saw your recommendation and I'm coming up empty too. If I find a source I'll post it.

Getting Away With Murder(s) review – powerful call for Holocaust justice

David Nicholas Wilkinson’s epic investigation into the Nazis who escaped a postwar reckoning shows the difficulty of prosecuting this technocratic atrocity

Worth watching it for

and then you can turn it off.

At least, unlike Old Acquaintance, the scene worth watching doesn't come at the very end.

Most of Now Voyager is worth watching;  the only part that drags are the scenes where the young girl is the center of attention. 

The last scene with that moon\stars line is the best part but one has to have a heart to see that!

8 p.m.  Splendor In the Grass (1961).  I watched this again recently and was still impressed.  A very sad tale about life’s choices, loss and regret.

This is the only movie I can think of that always leaves me crying.  I never know if I'm crying most for Deanie, Bud or Angelina.  Zohra Lambert (Angelina) should be on the "great small performances" thread for her part in that.

I'm of the opinion that "Splendor In The Grass" is more about mental illness than life's choices. So sad.

The title refers to life's choices and regret.  Wood's mental illness is a direct result of those things.
