Saw Rampart and was impressed by WH performance and lovely photography of LA.His life is not glamorised, and it is not simplified. I guess that’s what makes it a good story. You don’t have much hope for him. And there is no real resolution either. Like life. I enjoyed the movie, but it left me a little cold as well. There was no one I really identified with, and there’s no message of hope. I’m not sure there’s a message at all
This movie, David Cronenberg’s latest tells an interesting story and makes me want to read the book which is sadly not yet available in Kindle format. I am interested in psychoanalysis and the founding fathers too, so perhaps this is not a movie for everyone. Nevertheless fine performances, ridiculously crisp photography and exquisite attention to detail in the sets and locations made for a thoroughly compelling 99 minutes at the movies. (seemed enjoyably longer) And the spanking.
I enjoyed this movie. It had a pace and an atmosphere that seemed convincing, though I know nothing of the “real story” Clearly coding & not cooking is the “new rock ’n roll” OTOH it made me realise how I don’t really need a Facebook account
Mother in Law thought there was too much sex in it, but she liked the ending.
Sold Out at the NFT. Essential Christmas viewing
Saw Johnny Daukes’ debut movie “Acts of Godfrey”. Cast and Crew screening. Great atmosphere. Great Movie.
A 113 minute meditation on the approach and arrival of death. Luminous.
Terence Malick’s wonderful film screened at NFT1 as a Tribute to Ken Wlaschin
“My Afternoons with Margueritte” - really enjoyed this movie about the power of reading and the possibility of radical growth in middle age.
More Capra @ NFT. This time in NFT1. The first time I saw this at the movies. Clark Gable is hunky too. Another great movie about love and the human condition. A fun Rom Com & Road Movie.
More Capra genius - Stanwyck devotes a lifetime to love. Outstanding. Starting to love the NFT again. No adverts, great sound and picture.
Mike Leigh genius. Essential viewing. Nothing happens really. Great.
The Kids are Alright - worth the ticket price. Unfeasible but entertaining.
Really enjoyed Peter Greenaway’s incredible new movie at the ICA tonight. Enthralling, entertaining, informative. Great performances, script, lighting, sets, costumes, camera, music, soundtrack. Highly recommended
