I finally saw The Maltese Falcon yesterday. I really didn't know much about it, except that it's a prime example of the use of a macguffin, and of noir. I was surprised about how small the sets were and how few locations there were, giving it a cramped feel. And pleasantly surprised that it takes place in San Francisco. Good stuff, though.
Just finished the 'him' version of 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' -- I recommend the 'Them' version, I saw it first, yesterday, and 'him' just adds a few additional scenes (probably 'her' is the same, adding some additional footage)
I think the character development and relational/life/personality struggles were very well done.

All About Eve. It's considered one of the all time great films but I give it a 6/10. Some of the more recent movies I've seen such as Pixar's Inside Out and The Grand Budapest Hotel are more entertaining films. This really is the golden age of cinema.
If bees did go extinct, we could always hire people to dress up as bees and pollinate flowers with tiny feather dusters. Sure it'd be more expensive, but there are also millions of idle teens.
