do not get reference, but it sounds like you do not recommend either.

Watched the last two movies from the Millenium Trilogy.

 

#2 was OK, but #3 was great.  Some scary characters and well done...   I normally don't like sub-titled movies, but...

 

Cheers,

I positively hated "The Man Who Would Be King"! It completely subverted the whole point of the Kipling story. However, that it would do so is unsurprising.

On another note, I saw "Mud" last night. Excellent movie, if a little on the long side.

Caught the newly restored Safety Last at the Film Forum. This is a great print with the extra footage that cleans up the edit and makes it more watchable for a modern audience. One of the best physical comedies ever made and worth seeing on the big screen.

 

Few more dates left:

April 26th through 30th - The Film Forum in NYC (http://www.filmforum.org/)

May 11th & 12th - Coral Gables Art Cinema in Miami, FL (http://www.gablescinema.com/filmsandprograms.php)

May 18th - Seattle International Film Festival (http://www.siff.net/festival-2013)

May 24th through 27th - Music Box Theatre in Chicago, IL (http://www.musicboxtheatre.com/)

June 9th & 11th - The Loft Cinema in Tucson, AZ (http://www.loftcinema.com/)
