Freaky Friday of Mark Waters with wife and daughter. If you live with teenagers this might calm you down for a couple of days.
Ghost of Jerry Zucker. I watched it in the cinema back in the early 90’s. Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore aren’t the best actors and being directed by Jerry Zucker surely doesn’t make things better, but when Walter Murch is editing a film all that doesn’t really matter. He’s the master. Amazing.
Party Down Season 1.
Crash (1996) of David Cronenberg. Forgot to blog this one too. Not his best one. Videodrome and eXistenZ are his best ones so far, if you ask me.
The Spectacular Now of James Ponsoldt. I thought it would be a straightforward high school film, but I was in for a surprise. It sort of starts of like that and that is a bit boring, but the film changes slowly into some unpredictable thing else. Well, you can predict the end of course, but I wan’t sure of that during watching. And watching Shailene Woodley play Aimee already makes this film worth watching.
Yesterday in Cinecenter we watched Ida of Pawel Pawlikowski. This film won a lot of prizes, but apart from the beautiful cinematography I don’t know why. But my wife didn’t agree with me.
Saturday me and my wife watched Blue Ruin of Jeremy Saulnier in Eye Filminstitute. Pretty decent.
Another one I forgot: Yves Saint Laurent of Jalil Lespert in The Movies. With wife and daughter.
Rain Man of Barry Levinson. Watched it again after many years. Those eighties films are somehow less powerful when you watch them again or maybe some of these films made a big impression on me then and I expect them to repeat that, but in the meantime I have seen over 8000 films and some of them were very very good. So perhaps good changed. But it remains an impressive film. But what is that with that music. In the eighties we all knew already that the music sucked, but even so we had to wait ten years for things to improve.
