    "The Maiden Heist" with Morgan Freeman, Christopher Walken, and William H. Macy. Fun 'heist' movie that puts the emotional attachements to art in the foreground and makes a few funny yet mildly biting cuts about post-modern art.

    "You may take our lives, but you'll never take OUR FREEDOM!"


    It's a solid film, but here are the bad points.

    1 - Kilts weren't invented at this time.

    2 - The Scottish were and are savage barbarians. If the Scottish had been a stronger force than England at that time, they would have taken advantage of of them. Bring back Hadrian's Wall!

    3 - The king of England sends the princess to parley with Wallace, hoping that she would be slain so the king of France (her father) would join him against Scotland. Wouldn't the king of France be p****d that the king of England sent his daughter to die?!


    I'm selling this on ebay if anyone's interested.

    The film is about a hit man (Randy Quaid) who gives a compulsive gambler (Jay Baruchel) one hour to live. The movie takes place in real time and its ultimate subject is what we do with the time we have in this world.

    Good story, good acting, very good points, no overpaid superstars, no pointless/mandatory blockbuster scenes. To be clear - it is not best film of the year, it is just (sadly) far better than most of the 9 digit movies out there... If you liked Big Kahuna's, check this one out.

    Have now seen all three versions of SALT and the UNCUT Directors choice is my choice as the best.

    Have about a 100 gigs of my favorite classical musical, opera, & ballet performances saved and and enjoy all music. My favorite is Romatic era which my local friend must submit to in deference to Baroque likings.

    Just watched Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless. Liked it a lot, now I'll have to watch his other stuff and other French New Wave movies.

    This is a really good film. It actually made me enjoy popular culture which is remarkable in itself! The amount of effort that went into making this film is obvious from start to finish. It's a joy to watch.

    The story is so operatic in nature and yet it doesn't seek to be more than it is. There's an explicit reference to La Boheme and I got hints of Werther. If anyone can spot any more connections with opera I'd love to know.

    I'm interested to hear what anyone else has to say about the film if they have seen it.

    The Straight Story, by David Lynch. Definitely a far cry from his other works, but still a great movie. The cinematography is what impresses me the most, as well as Richard Farnsworth's subdued yet captivating performance.

    Agreed. Mulholland Drive is one of my favorite movies. Lynch is one of those rare filmmakers who forces the audience to assume the role of detective, instead of showing us a detective story. You have to watch the movie closely and tie up the loose ends yourself. I think that's why American audiences are so unreceptive of Lynch, they don't like to think. I'd personally take Lynch over Spielberg any day.

    One of my favorite lines: "I've been influenced by Mozart," then the flash to a guitar solo where he quotes Boccherini.
