    A weird a%# old movie...One of those that shaped my childhood...Its fascinating how old movies had what new ones lack, the substance and the story that keeps you glued to your seat no matter how long they last...10/10

    I can recommend it because of the great cast.

    I saw it in a cinema when it came out. I liked it then, but I was teenager at that time. Liam Neeson was the good Scotsman and Tim Roth was the evil Englishman

This was Anthony Hopkins's film. I listened carefully for his subtle intonations, his stance and facial expressions and his tremendous ability to capture emotional repression. (I suspect he's a bit like this himself, actually.) Very reminiscent of his portrayal in "The Remains of the Day", Hopkins never steals the limelight - never attempts to stand out from the background and yet, there it is, a strong and commanding performance. The narrative isn't all that interesting and some of the characters are straight stereotypes, but without Hopkins this film would fall somewhat short. Loved the music of Percy Grainger during the closing credits.
    I haven't seen it.

    But I've read a bit about it for some reason. It was, and still is, highly critically acclaimed, won 3 Academy Awards.

    But I've read a lot of smack about Howard's End when it was released, and for several years afterwards (but nothing lately at all . . . like, no one even mentions it at all). The "smack" revolved around it's "twee-ness", being endlessly long and dull and irrelevant. Someone even called it "Howard's Bleeding End".

    Aguirre, the Wrath of God.
    I put off watching that film for the longest time, due to images of the main character looking a bit farcical. Great culmination in the ending to the film, made it all worth the watch. Truly a journey into madness.

    Continue to roll the family favorites at my house,
    Tonight was Home Alone.

    Tomorrow (provided the miniature people clean their rooms) it will be Home Alone 2, or Big Hero 6

    "Home from the Hill" (Dir. Minnelli), starring Robert Mitchum, Eleanor Parker, George Hamilton, George Peppard. 1960

    Minnelli is 'the poet of lost boys' and this coming-of-age melodrama doesn't disappoint in that respect. But the clash between sensitive masculinity and social demands for aggressive masculinity are played out here through hunting, sex and toughness tropes which fail the central character, Theron (Hamilton). Peppard is the stand-out here, in an early film appearance. Eleanor Parker always looks sad and stoic and faintly operatic, with that long-suffering mien she carries about from film to film. Mitchum is ever-reliable as the head of this family, but he does tend to fall into those cliches in the conflicts between alpha-male and exasperated, but extremely flawed, patriarch. In this respect, Mitchum paints from a now-familiar canvas.

    Minnelli's is very confident direction, with few loose ends and tight control over the plot elements. Some sequences of peripheral interest are dealt with swiftly - sometimes humorously - building a picture of a small town of smaller people who have a destructive penchant for gossip and a strong impulse for retribution. The local cemetery symbolizes the social divisions; the establishment on one side of the fence and the dishonorable and forgotten on the other. Hypocrisy triumphs. The fault lines are ultimately financial and when Mitchum's disreputable Wade Hunnicutt is killed in an act of revenge, he is interred on the establishment side. Forgiven and not forgotten.

    do you know the Polish director Andrzej Zulawski? Given your background and movie interests, you might enjoy his films.
