    An oldie on YouTube: Random Harvest with Ronald Colman and Greer Garson. Loved every second of it, cried like a baby at the end.

    I saw it, too. I like the idea but the script is melo by numbers: the men are suddenly desired by much younger and much hotter women (how's about the cliche of the flamenco dancer? heh heh), a wife will drop you like a hot potato the moment you step out on her, regardless of your 24 year history together (and apparent fidelity), passion = sex (couldn't possibly refer to anything else, never mind that we're talking about pro musicians). They could've been way more imaginative concerning the lives of the characters involved. That being said, there was some good acting, despite several cringe-worthy lines. However, the daughter was a cartoon and terribly, terribly acted. It made me want to ffd every time she was on screen.

    I decided to watch Fritz Lang's films, after seeing the inspiring M a while ago. I've still yet to see Metropolis and the 2 films of Dr. Mabuse, but I will definitely find the time for them in the future. The last one, trying to be chronologically correct was Fury, I believe his first american film. It's a great commentary about those times ongoing mob lynches. Though the dialogue between the two main characters is romanticized, the lynch and trial scenes are really well made.

    An Inconvenient Truth. Boooooring. Not one sex scene or act of violence, reminded me of You've got mail.

    There is also a final 1960 film called The Thousand Eyes of Dr. Mabuse, the last film directed by Fritz Lang. So the entire series consists of Dr. Mabuse the Gambler in 2 Parts (1922), The Testament of Dr. Mabuse (1933) and the last one mentioned. Don't forget to put it in your list if you want to watch the complete Lang's Mabuse-Series (There followed after him by a couple of more films all featured the main character Dr. Mabuse).

    Via Netflix, 9th Company, a Russian film depicting the Afghanistan War/invasion from the Soviet's point of view. Would that our own leaders {read Bush and the neo-cons} have seen this before committing our own precious American lives to this quagmire.

    Happiness by Todd Solondz (1998)

    I won't do my usual thing of describing the film, since the subject matter is well beyond the bounds of what passes for acceptable on TC. Instead I'll just say that this is one of the most uncomfortable, disturbing and hilarious films I have ever seen.

    The Place Beyond the Pines (2012), starring Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta. Directed by Derek Cianfrance.

    This small budget film currently in limited run, is spoiler prone, so I can't talk much about it. But, Ryan Gosling's portrayal of loner Luke Glanton is one of cinema's great performances. He should be rewarded with an Oscar nom.

    This project could've used story and structure revision. It should have been better. Say no more.

    Seen these both many times, but thought it would be downright anti-social or near criminally negligent to not to post both of these full-length links I just found on youtube.
    Both classics, with more than spectacular composition and lighting, La Belle et la Bête being perhaps one of "the most beautiful black and white movies ever made."
    Jean Cocteau ~
    La Belle et la Bête (If you have seen the Disney Co.'s Beauty and the Beast and have not seen this, you may be rather astonished at how much the Disney Co. lifted wholesale from the Cocteau film.)
