Guess I won't answer that yet - give someone else a chance.

I did watch and enjoy De Noorderlingen, which is about to come off NF Instant -- the shot in your profile picture really does look like it's out of the 17th century or thereabouts, so I was surprised when we came to it.

thanks for the heads-up.

They're also getting rid of Minnie and Moskowitz (Cassavetes), Nights of the Creeps, Helvetica, C.H.U.D. and The Stuff D;

and quite a few more, unfortunately. December 1 tends to be the expiration date for big batches like this (remembering back to previous years).

I really like that movie too. Glad you enjoyed it--and I'm glad my avatar makes some sense now. :)

Anyway, I'll go with Hire, which looks interesting. Didn't like Verdoux all that much.

Haven't seen either, so I'm chosing between the directors. I've got more favorites from Mike Nichols than from Doug Liman, so Postcards it is.
