: Stuck on You -- Farrelly & Farrelly, 2003.
Partially set in Martha's Vineyard and shot in some areas in Massachusetts (before the plot moves to Hollywood). I expected to despiiiiiiiiiiiise this Farrelly Brothers comedy about conjoined twins. I don' think I can go so far as to say that I liked it, but I didn't hate it NEARLY as much as expected, which was a nice-enough surprise. Cher's a good sport.
: Montana -- Enright, 1950.
Set in Montana, but filmed in California. Errol Flynn plays an Australian sheepherder who comes to try his luck in Montana, only to encounter trouble with cattlemen who don't want sheep in the territory. Alexis Smith is slightly less dolled-up than she usually is in westerns -- she's still spent plenty of time in the Hair and Makeup and Completely-Unsuitable-Wardrobe departments, but the effect is not quite as jarring as some of her other films. It may be that my memory's deserting me, but I don't recall having heard Errol Flynn sing before -- he and Smith have a guitar duet. The film's forgettable, though there is a deliciously cheesy voiceover introducing the picture's central "sheepmen vs. cattlemen" theme where the sheep are presented in menacing, grandiose terms -- "a slow, white tide....cattlemen claimed there was...DEATH in this tide..." Side note: ironic that (real-life Australian) Flynn only occasionally
sounds Australian in this picture. Ooh -- and it features one of the quickest gunshot wound recoveries I've seen in a while.
: How to Die in Oregon -- Richardson, 2011.
Documentary on Oregon's physician-assisted suicide law and the impact that it has had on patients, families, and doctors, plus a look at Washington State's efforts to pass a similar law. The film makes no secret that it supports a patient's right to control over suffering and terminal illness, though it does make some attempt to present a story of someone who has been negatively affected by the law. (It's pretty clear which side of the fence the filmmakers sit on, though, and for disclosure's sake, I sit firmly on the same side.) It's a compassionate, affecting look at the end of life.
