It is good, not great. Tom Hanks is perfect for his role.

The part where Capt Phillips is in the infirmary on the Navy ship is powerful. The medical personnel are actual sailors. They were instructed to handle the situation as if it were real, just do what they would do. They took several takes, but I think the results are excellent.

Now, I'm not saying that the acting is good, or that the story will be good... But it sure is entertaining and satisfying to watch. You've got a bunch of guys riding around on motorcylces acting like badasses, corrupt cops, bitchy women, action (fights, guns, etc) and a very authentic "Americana" feel what with the decent soundtrack and general last-of-a-dying-breed ambiance. It's like a West Coast Sopranos for Harley bikers from the 70's. Not enough hot chicks though LOL
The earlier seasons were much better IMO. Up through the one when the whole gang went to Ireland . Since then there has been too much soap opera and the violence is too gratuitous. That said I still watch it.

Holy Motors is weirdly brilliant

Les chansons d'amour - contemporary musical-cum-drama 

La Belle Personne - school teacher-pupil drama

I don't know what Holy Motors was supposed to be, but at least it wasn't boring.

Rewatched a couple of favorites:

A Man Escaped - Beautifully spare prison break film

Day of Wrath - A dark story of witchcraft that is ultimately about guilt and regret.

Wise Blood - the best Flannery O'Connor film adaptation you could hope for. Top shelf performances by great character actors like Brad Dourif, Harry Dean Stanton and Ned Beatty.

Mahler - Surreal and quite beautiful. Reminds me a bit of a Fellini film, although a bit more "classical"

Your Friends and Neighbors - Sweet baby jesus - Nat Kinski is incredibly ..... and Jason Patrick plays the alpha male cunt with such style.... La Bute is very watchable. Any other movies of his to seek out?

In the Company of Men was good.

 

I watched this

Not sure what to make of it. I liked parts of it, thought others were mediocre. Strong soundtrack.

 

And this

i thought killing them softly was excellent. the scene where ray liota got beat up was fantastically gruesome and the end quote to the movie was maybe the best one liner to end a movie all time. waiting for lefty to show me why im way wrong on that last part.

Because of this of course:

 

 

I agree, the beating was much more shocking than all the killings in this movie.

I just thought the dialogue was contrived in some parts.

 

Killing them softly was the second movie in a row I watched these days with the great Richard Jenkins in it.

The other one was this:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Watch The Wicker Man. It's hilariously awful.
