What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 846
A comedy with Peter Sellers playing the character of a basic man, so basic and simple minded that some mistake him for genius. I felt like the shtick got old but the movie has its moments for introspection and laughter. Also, Shirley MacLaine is as lovely and cute as she was In the apartment 35 years earlier. Perhaps she is the most charming leading lady I've ever had the pleasure of watching on screen
The new Tom Hanks film, "The Bridge" (or something like that), looks quite decent.
I grew up reading stories about the Cold War and people like Rudolf Abel and Gary Powers, so I'll definitely see it. The lead role sounds like the sort of role that Hanks plays very well, too, so it should suit him well.
Bend it like Beckham - Gurinder Chadha (2002)
Loved this movie about the conflict between the culture and the individual. So simple and so sweet, this is a movie made of a talented director who knew how to make the most out of little. So much vitality that I forgive that the actors are just medium. And the reason Keira is ok is that she is not the lead.
