I really liked it too. Particularly liked/disliked how naive and stupid the heroine was

Just saw this



Engaging stimulating commentary on love and loss. Love the sequence when Michael Cane's character was conducting nature. Great cast and highly recommended.

Onna no Mizuumi by Yoshida, great photography, interesting enough, I want to like this director but I keep finding him...dull. Anyway a good film 6/10.

Loved Das Boot, the claustrophobic and intense feeling, omg, but didn't think Directors Cut added anything.

Just saw Creed.... a pretty great retelling of the Rocky story. Which, given the number of tries they have had, you would expect.

I am always immersed in movies and Das Boot exhausted me.  No frills in that one.

 

Cheers,

So Creed was good?  Better than Rocky 6?

Creed is basically a very intentional homage to Rocky 1...

The English Patient a non liner narrative with a superb cast and story. A supine epic which combines intense visuals and raw emotional encounters in all of its narrative threads. I haven't seen this in years, and throughly enjoyed it. When I first saw I went out and bought the book the next day. It also wins points for its sang froid in terms of male costumers both in the desert and the urbane formal scenes. A fantastic film.

Anthony Minghella is bar none the best scriptwriter of his generation imo. his dialogue is music. i was bummed when he passed (to put it glibly)

 

there was an incredible short-running Jim Henson show called The Storyteller that Minghella scripted back in the late 80s, starring John Hurt. it aired after prime-time and was a retelling of classic folk tales with muppets sprinkled in (it sounds corny but the combo of Jim Henson producing and Minghella writing was lightning in a bottle). i cannot recommend it enough.

 

fwiw i also think The Talented Mr. Ripley is a great flick.

Thandie Newton was such an unknown she couldn't even get her name mentioned in the trailer.  lol

Thank you for this post. Need to revisit this. Was unconcentrated when I watched it some five years ago.
