What Movies Are You Watching Lately - Page 868
Out of the Allen movies I've attempted to watch, I've only been able to sit through Hannah and her Sisters and Crimes and Misdemeanors (usually sitting through does not necessarily equate to enjoyment, but I did enjoy both of them).
I'm a fan of his work, and I think they are two good movies.
I forced myself to watch Interiors so that I could warn others not to.
Woody Allen is one of the most uneven directors of our time. He has made boring and uninteresting movies, but has also shown us that the old master still has mojo. Blue Jasmine is nothing less than a perfect masterpiece. It is so good that I broke out and swore after seeing it in cinema.
match point was awful - nihilism is such a self-indulgent philosophy. great cast with an awful script which is what woody's bad movies look like.
just saw midnight in paris for the first time and i enjoyed it. need to see blue jasmine. i can't believe cate blanchett would work for a crappy script so i expect it to be worthwhile.
Disagree thought it was very engaging edgegy. Cate was excellent as Jasmine the demented reincarnation of Blanche Dubois descending into the abyss.
Good story strong cast what's not to like?
As an aside I've seen CB live on stage a few times in the last few years. Filthy I missed her in the STC production of Streetcar.
I agree that Cate Blanchett reinterprets Blanche Dubois in a impressive way.
A Streetcar named Desire is btw one of my all time favourites, mostly because of the brute force in Marlon Brando's part, but almost as much for Vivien Leight's strong part as fragile and out of touch with realities. Together with Kim Hunter's (the real heroine in the story) down to earth attitude they make a perfect balance in casting.
