Reportedly inspired by actual events, this is a film that may work better with knowledge of those events. As it is, the movie provides limited context for the situation with many unanswered questions and intriguing but murky religious overtones. Whatever the case, the whole thing is incredibly well shot, full of beautiful tracking and panning shots and magnificently intense close-ups throughout (see above). The deep ironies of the situation resonate too.

I was in a weird mood and decided to pull the trigger on a nearly 4-hour movie. And I liked it - a lot. Yes, it could have been a lot shorter, but it had a lot of tension building throughout, and a sizable portion of the film devoted to the sport, which I enjoyed. I don't know the rules of cricket, but I learned more about the sport from this film than from any other medium I've been exposed to. Actually pretty fun.

The premise here is intriguing and Ricardo Darín of Nine Queens fame is fantastic playing a very different shifty and clever character. The film is slow paced though and does not quite capitalise on its potential. The title refers to the name Darín gives to his awareness when he is about to have an epileptic seizure, but this only happens twice throughout. The second half of the film is pretty riveting though and the melancholic music is great.

39. The 39 Steps (1935) TSPDT #619

Image

While it often feels like a pretty typical 'wrong man' film for its director, this early career Alfred Hitchcock thriller is surprisingly innovative for a film of its era. From cleverly shot claustrophobic train chase sequences, to eerie figures lurking the shadows outside the protagonist's window at night (see above), to the shots of him running through the misty moors, this is a very good-looking film. Robert Donat also does well with the lead role.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Young T.J. Lowther offers a strong, highly facial performance here as he constantly reevaluates where his loyalties/ethics lie. The surrogate father/son dynamics between him and Costner feel genuine too with both craving what the other has to offer. Less successful is the intertwining of a parallel plot in which Clint Eastwood plays a cop hot on Costner's trail. His plotline seems to mostly exist to add unnecessary exposition, though Clint is solid as ever.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

As a "very silly" but wealthy eligible bachelor, Tom Bennett is excellent here; he might seem foolish as he calls green peas "novelty vegetables" and plays with them like a kid; on the other hand, he feels like the only genuine person here, unrestrained by 1790s mannerisms. The film does not really concentrate on him though, and with tons of characters it is hard keeping track of who is who. Got to love the use of Clockwork Orange music though.

Often cited as Laurel and Hardy's best work, this film may not hold a candle to Block-Heads, Our Relations or Jitterbugs, but it is certainly one of their better outings. The film has its amusing routines (falling into boiling water) but also a lot of predictable gags (wax fruit) and the whole thing is rife with coincidences. Laurel and Hardy are as delightful to watch as ever though, especially Ollie fumbling to make sense of Stan's remarks ("ship-hiking").

Man.. I'd seen most of it before, but not enough to check. I like a lot of parts to it, but the way the family behaves for the majority of the movie is just weird and unsettling. Even at the beginning, they act haunted and shellshocked.
