    absolutely recommended, and certainly all TC'ers should catch this flick at some point!

    Couldn't agree with you more; I thought Walken did a particularly excellent turn here.

    Mountains of the Moon {Netflix}, starring Delroy Lindo, Iain Glen and Patrick Bergin. Portrays the 1854 expedition {s} of the two British explorers Richard Burton and John Speke to find the source of the Nile, with many harrowing adventures and brutal experiences undergone by both men and their companions in Africa. The sad denouement though, occurs in England--not Africa-- as Speke becomes influenced by an unscrupulous publisher to turn on his former ally and friend Burton.

    I searched youtube for Home for the Holidays 1995 just to see if it was there, a fine family turkey movie. Instead I found a 1972 ABC made for T.V. slasher/mystery staring a young Sally Field, nearing the end it becomes great fun to watch, never seen a more entertaining melodrama.

    I was also in the retro mood today...This movie is so old and rare you cannot find a bigger picture of it online

    It seems 1980 (year of my birth btw lol ) was fertile for good horrors and other movies...This is a variation on a theme about the ''Great Evil One'' or ''Lord Satan'' and it bears a lot of resemblance with a book ''Master and Margarita'' by Bulgakov...Although naive and even comical at the moments, for example when the old inspector lets himself go and dances with a hot young chick in the disco, it has much more deeper and sinister moments and messages...I also like the guy playing Satan and loose erotique of the 80s contrasting todays corrupted and often false morality in movies...Anyway a gem one must see...To believe...

    ^ It seems to have far more references under the title, The Nightmare Never Ends. I'll check it out for sure.

    My Night At Maud's - Eric Rohmer, dir.

    I've started rewatching all of Eric Rohmer's films in chronological order (or at least the sixteen in the three main cycles, plus a scattered half-dozen others I've got) before I start reading a couple of critical studies I've recently aquired.

    This was always one of my favorites, but this time round was the best viewing yet. What a masterpiece! What a master!

    Leni Riefenstahl: The blue light




    Leni keeps hold of the treasure in her secret cave but the rapacious villagers aren't far behind.

    Freudian, anti-fascist gem from 1932. I saw the silent version with English intertitles.

    ^ I only half way watched Mud, it was a dollar rental.

    I saw Elysium at the theatre, thought it was a good action film. Maybe it was meant to hollywoodize District 9? Monsters 2010 had a very similar symbolic gist akin to Distrcit 9, without all the impossible action hero mumbo jumbo of Elysium. Didn't see the point in all the beating on Jodie Foster's acting, exactly how to breath life into a coldfish, hmmm, what a question??? Her dubbing was poor at a moment or two in the film, but that's on the sound editor.



    I really enjoyed The Prisoners though, highly recommended.

    World War Z.

    Not a huge fan of apocalyptic films in general, and this one didn't change my mind a great deal. Pitt was okay, but I thought the film suffered from an unengaging story-line and overly long action sequences.

    I liked Hud, so I'll probably like Mud.

    Wow, nope, nope, nope...I expected much more better work from a distinguished Zombie Romero...I guess he handled the undead better...Story is static, often stumbles upon dead end, creepy parts are only on the end, few of them i had such high hopes for this one...

    Saw Kill Your Darlings last night. Excellent! Daniel Radcliffe has surely grown up, but cast was all excellent.

    What score there is to this film is by current classical wunderkind Nico Muhly.
