I am glad that you recommended this one, Tina. I saw it this afternoon...on the day that it garnered ten oscar nominations! What a wonderfully imaginative piece of film making.

just saw "The Duchess"..heh heh you'd think with all the money the Duke of Devonshire had (Ralph Fiennes) he'd be at the least a "little" happy..what a morose guy...and The "Duchess" got more than she bargained for!...

I saw Doubt this afternoon - a powerful and gripping drama set in a convent school in mid 60s New York. It starred Amy Adams and Philip Seymor Hoffman - but above all it confirmed for me that Meryl Streep is still the world's finest screen actress. And of course, she turns 60 this year.

john..That was a great story and play, eh? Streep is good. Over the weekend, we managed to see another of her films, "Out of Africa". Her,Redford and Klaus Brandauer were some acting ensemble down there in Souh Africa. The film by Pollack was beautifully shot. Makes you kind of go and visit that land!

Hi Rocker - Out of Afica was also a great favourite of mine. Apparently, Sydney Pollack originally got Robert Redford to play his character with an English accent .... but then for some reason the idea was abandoned. I was saddened to hear of the director's death last May. We had some great films from him - Great Gatsby, Jeremiah Johnson, Three Days of the Condor and Tootsie. In Tootsie he has a small cameo appearance with that immortal line to Dustin Hoffman...... "I begged you to get therapy!"

And maybe it's time to take a look again at "They Shoot Horses"????
Pretty timely if you ask me where all the talk now is about the Great Depression! The film shows the seamy side of capitalism. Well all I can say it's timely.......

I have today seen 'The Young Victoria' - a Martin Scorsese co- production that examines the unseemly power struggle at the very beginning of the great queen's reign - loved it! It was a very different role for Emily Blunt than the one we saw her in in 'The Devil Wears Prada'. I also really enjoyed 'Revolutionary Road' - Sam Mendes' extremely powerful but bleak study of the death of an ideal....and of a marriage. The two leads were outstanding.

john...So I guess the fact that the story was about life over here at the time didn't deter you much right? I guess the Uk expereinced that stuff as well? The film does a give great insight into the mores and attitudes of that time here in the States.
When I think back, I love 'Lennon Remembers' where he notes how it looked to him over here when they first came in the sixties. I laughed my a** off when he described it. This was an "alien" land to them and lots of what happened in the 60's was certainly affected by the decade before.
