    Casablanca
    I had several movies to choose from last night that I hadn't seen yet. Instead I went with a movie I own, but haven't watched in years. I wanted to see something really good. This one never disappoints. Classic cast (I love Ingrid Bergman!), story, and famous lines. This one hits that tertiary Si melancholy sweet spot. "Play it once, Sam. For old times' sake." Not often do you see your mood (and reason why you chose to watch the movie) echoed so beautifully. One of the greatest ever made.
    Highly Highly Recommended.

    Last night I watched a humbling modern Japanese feature called Nobody Knows. It's almost a modern take on Grave of The Fireflies, just with more present day despondence in style than animation tearjerkery.

    Summary: Four siblings live happily with their mother in a small apartment in Tokyo. The children all have different fathers and have never been to school. The very existence of three of them has been hidden from the landlord. One day, the mother leaves behind a little money and a note, charging her oldest boy to look after the others. And so begins the children's odyssey... (imdb)
    Review: Regardless of how impressive Japan's position is on the HDI, this film manages to bring things right back down to earth. A stark look at the harshness of reality in a medium that so often levitates us into fantasy. But it still appeals to our sense of fantasy, and this is why it is profound.

    Tonight I intend to watch Black Cat, White Cat. It's an Emir Kusturica film, the chap who did Underground (which you may have seen), as well as the highly acclaimed but rarely seen, Time of The Gypsies.

    Looking forward to that. Should be awesome.

    Then I'll likely watch Gary Oldman in Prick Up Your Ears in the early hours.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    The Secrets

    It's about feminism, sexuality, and Judaism. It was very interesting. I enjoyed it immensely.

    purple violets by/with edward burns, with selma blair and patrick wilson. OK for those with a lighter/romantic streak. pleasant, not memorable.

    snow angels. with kate beckinsale and sam rockwell. the two collide in small town america. great performances, solid story. scene with sam rockwell dancing in a local bar with two drunken strangers is awesome. recommended.

    I watched Terrence Malick's The New World last night.


    If anyone else has seen it, I'd love to know what you think. It's got a very Herzog/Tarkovsky feel to it. But like Days of Heaven, there was just something that felt wrong about it. Perhaps it was the artsy dialog, or maybe it was just Colin Farrel. I don't know. I wanted to fall in love with it, but I didn't.

    Kind of made me feel sick about being English, too.

    Forgetting Sarah Marshall. If you didn't think The 40-Year-Old Virgin sucked, you won't think FSM sucks either. I was very entertained.

    Busy day, today, for UK film fans:

    Criticker.com Forums • View topic - UK TV Film Recommendations 27/9

    The Edukators is on; underrated, in my opinion. And also David Lean's Ryan's Daughter, which has one of my favourite love scenes in cinema.

    Yesterday I rewatched Trier's Breaking The Waves, considered by some the best English language film of the nineties. I liked it a lot more than the first time around, and generally felt it worth braving the three hours with adverts. There's something about Trier's films, however, that leave me with a passive experience, and I think it's the religious aspects that purposefully do this, along with the lead character, Bess' detachment to her pious society. Got to be one of the best performances of the decade.
    RIP Katrin.

    The Philadelphia Story

    I had my reservations about The Philadelphia Story; namely that putting James Stewart, Cary Grant, and Katharine Hepburn in the same movie is quite a big risk, in my opinion. But boy did it pull through! A wise and witty, yet realistic script kept me glued to the screen throughout. And I bet it was far more self-referential for the three leads than most people are aware.

    I also saw The Triplets of Belleville. A joy.
