    North by North West. It's the second time we watched it, and we found it even more brilliant than the first time.

I also liked the way director Derek Jarman tried to show the paintings being created. And it was fun to see the familiar faces of the cast, Nigel Terry (Excalibur), Nigel Davenport (Chariots of Fire), Michael Gough (Out of Africa), Robbie Coltrane (Harry Potter), and the 2 baby-face newbies Sean Bean & Tilda Swinton.

    I haven’t watched it yet, but at 14:10 today, I will be at the nearby Cinemark theater for Shang-Chi for my first foray into a movie theater since 2019, and the 2020 shelter-in-place.

    The Devil Wears Prada (2006, directed by David Frankel, starring Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway), on TV last night. Very enjoyable, not least because of the performance of Meryl Streep. And the poster is one of my all-time favourites in the genre of movie posters.

    Streamed this last night. There's as big a body count as in Liam Neeson's 'Taken' but with an added sense of humour. It's a fun popcorn movie with a transparent and completely predictable plot where all the bad guys end their days with brutal and improbable deaths.

    Center Stage directed by Stanley Kwan.



    A biopic non-linear film about Ruan Lingyu, a silent movie actress who is widely regarded as an icon of Chinese cinema. A very tragic life. I enjoyed how the director incorporate a certain documentary style to the film by incorporating footage from the films the real actor star in and reconstruct scenes that has been lost to history. Recommended.

    P.S. Tried to watch extended version (Amazon and Vudu has it - 154 minutes). There is a version in English subtitles (126 minutes) but it's the edited version which have cut some scenes that I found critical to the film's experience.

    Cat On a Hot Tin Roof (1958). Directed by Richard Brooks. Even though the script was bowlderized from the stage version, still a tour de force acting experience with Paul Newman, Burl Ives and Elizabeth Taylor.
