    "Brief encounter" by David Lean 1945

    I wanted to watch this highly praised movie since I've heard a lot about it but never watched.

    Well, after finally seeing it I still put "Lawrence of Arabia" on the top. It is a real masterpiece of Lean and in a history of cinematography. Brief encounter is a drama, well presented and showing a woman experiencing real passion for the first time in her life even though she is "happily" married. And by the end of a movie we see her 'boring" husband as she thinks of him now (good husbands are always "boring"

    But it is him who understood it all without words and accepted her as she is without judging. We might think of a future and how this woman could be grateful to her husband for he is indeed a very wise person. He is more mature in this drama compared to her since feelings will be gone but life should be continued....

    Chocolat (2000) 4 stars.

    A woman and her daughter open a chocolate shop in a small French village that shakes ... There is depth and strength to the characters in the movie.

    The Post. Spielberg ain't no Pakula, and Streep and Hanks were like the upholstered armchairs in Bridge of Spies, a much better though similarly worthy Spielberg movie. Some of the design, lighting and dialogue simply drew attention to itself (lots of artificial lighting and yellow decor, then white, overhead and daylight - "letting in the truth" - especially in the Supreme Court where all the light comes from Above!)

    The DVD case proclaims "One Of The Best Films Ever Made" (Observer, Rex Reed). I'm beginning to realise that Rex Reed is an unreliable witness to great movies.

    Internet trolls are pissed off and using the click-bait obsessed mass media to propel their movement into the mainstream. Influencing presidential elections, manipulating journalists, inventing meme culture, trolls are either our saviors or driving our culture off of a cliff.

    finally after having heard a lot about Danish Girl I've watched it. and I must say I'd better keep on watching old movies
    unexplored field from 1930s and even some 40s cinematography has some wonderful examples to offer.

    42 (2013) is about Jackie Robinson, the player who is known for breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball but was also a superb ballplayer in his own right. It can be difficult to watch because of its brutally accurate portrayal of southern-U.S. racism in the 50s and 60s. But the performances by Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford are both excellent, and the film itself is superb. I think it did Robinson justice, and I came away with an even deeper admiration for him after watching it. It made me sick to see the way people used to treat people of color in this country, especially in the region I call home. Although we've come a long way since then, it's clear we have a long way yet to go.

    I finally got around to watching The King's Speech (2010) about King George VI, who struggled with an uncontrollable stammer throughout his life. Colin Firth portrays the king, and Geoffrey Rush portrays the speech therapist, Lionel Logue, who helps him overcome his speech impediment enough to speak confidently in public. Terrific film all the way around; deserved every bit of accolade it received, especially Best Picture and Best Actor for Firth.
    Yeah it was okay but "The Social Network" was the best picture in that race that year.. it's a far better film.
