last week’s films…

Sully (2016), Clint Eastwood

New #1 for the year. The opening scene gets your attention. A good crowd at the 11:40am showing yesterday and almost everyone stayed seated through the first half of the credits.

Mysterious Object at Noon (2000), Apichatpong Weerasethakul movie of the week

Watching Mysterious Object made me think of this movie quote: You are going to be filming me and the actors, I am going to be filming the actors, and Terry is going to be in charge of filming the whole thing, from the 1968 film Symbiopsychotaxiplasm – Take One.

Son of Saul (2015), Laszlo Nemes

Very difficult to watch.

A Mighty Wind (2003), Christopher Guest

Casualties of War (1989), Brian De Palma  rewatch

Blood Father (2016), Jean-Francois Richet

De Palma (2016), Noah Baumbach, Jake Paltrow

During one of the last scenes of Casualties of War, after the Courts-martial sentencing, when the 4 are marching out past Michael J Fox, Sean Penn, last in line, stops and leans over and says something to him. De Palma tells us what he really said in this documentary.

Sunset Song (2015), Terence Davies

Beautiful film.

Children of Men (2006), Alfonso Cuaron

It was good.

Learning to Drive (2014), Isabel Coixet

Ben Kingsley earned both stars. There is only one learning to drive movie: Mike Leigh’s Happy-Go-Lucky (2008) with Sally Hawkins and Eddie Marsan. Movie actually almost made a comeback at around the 70 minute mark (90 minute film) but fell once again toward the conclusion. The scene with the past facing her and then was sitting next to her and she asked him questions could have been done better, and there was a chance to use this once again at the end.
