    It follows is coming off limited release this Friday. Meaning I am going to see This Tuesday. The cinema has reduced prices on Tuesdays. When I worked at the cinemas we used to call it " tight wad Tuesday" :)

    I do see some of Luthor's likeness in him based on this picture. Though, I must admit, I'm a bit skeptical he can play the role well. I think he can play an imposing business man, similar to The Social Network.

    I fail to understand why does it have such low rating on IMDB (6,4). I'd give it at least 7,5.

    I watched Interstellar again on a cruise ship with nothing else to do, and I liked it much better the second time. Maybe watching it with a bunch of senior citizens lent itself to patience, but I liked it.

    Searching for Sugar Man - "Two South Africans set out to discover what happened to their unlikely musical hero, the mysterious 1970s rock 'n' roller, Rodriguez."

    A documentary style movie. I thought I wouldn't enjoy it, but it was really intriguing. I recommend it.

    Also watched The Seven Psychopaths. "A struggling screenwriter inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends kidnap a gangster's beloved Shih Tzu."

    Very funny and some wonderful acting in this movie. My man Sam Rockwell, Colin Farrel, Christopher Walken, and Woody Harrelson.

    How do you "get" it? Do you rely entirely on pirated copies even for the more obscure movies?

    Life of Crime.

    Set in the 70's. Tennis is one of the themes. One scene has a T 2000 lying on the court next to a white tennis ball.

    It's not bad. Im a huge fan of the Coen Bros and I'd rate it towards the bottom of their films. All their films are incredible though, so it's not exactly an insult.

    Finally saw Whiplash. Loved it. It makes more sense to me since I was a hyper focused musician when I was growing up just like the main character. The funny thing to me is that teachers like that one are the best guys you can have in music, even though they are very hard to deal with.

    Just loved how well they captured the jazz vibe, and showed how much work it takes to be great at it. Really awesome film.

    Gleeson alone is a legit enough reason for me to watch a movie. Even if it's the worst he will make it worth it somehow.

    The Fifth Estate, the film about Wikileaks/Julian Assange.

    While it's a terrible film all-round the story of Wikileaks is fascinating. Assange's work, for all his foibles, will eventually be regarded as some of the most important in the shaping of global affairs and the way governments operate.

    I download torrents for everything I watch.

    The theatre experience in Delhi is really bad on many counts. They charge exorbitant rates to show you a movie that has been chopped randomly in order to fit in several shows. Most of the seats are close to the screen or to the extreme right or left since the theatres are often broad rather than long. Harrowing for the neck.

    So how they can charge well over 500 rupees for such a bad experience beats me.

    Good to know you enjoyed it. I liked this the most of his work because it's more "Irish";), plus it was the first ever work of him I have seen 11 years ago. Did you get the Bronski Beat reference?:)

    I will watch Calvary soon:)

    PS Just realized its a different director for Calvary..... Will check it out still:)

    Rewatched Casablanca the other day, for old times sake, with my mother. Last time saw it with both parents a couple years back.

    Saw Breathless (Godard) a few days back.

    It is always a choice whether to use italics or quotation marks for film titles. My understanding is that the formal standard is italics, which is used in literature. Newspapers and magazines tend to use quotation marks. I will use the Sentinel standard for this post.

    Casablanca is an amazing film, especially considering it was originally made as a "B" movie. Breathless is largely known a the innovator of the jump cut.

    When I watch the film, I wonder if Godard just didn't get the film coverage he needed, and needed to hack it together in an innovative way. Later, film critics attributed a variety of cerebral and cinematic motives to his methods, which may have been a happenstance of chance and circumstance.

    It would be amusing if this were the case. I met J.P. Gorin a few times in the early 1990s, a man credited with ruining Godard's career. Godard became very political and didactic in the 1970s.

    On topic: I watched Vertigo on DVD recently, which I have seen many times and is my favourite Hitchcock film. I use to get many, many DVDs from a Russian friend in the 2000s, and now have 7,000+ DVDs languishing in my collection. Most are European, Asian, or American "classics."

    A couple years back when i was collecting information about movies from wikipedia, the movie names were in italics. That is why is started putting them in italics here.

    It helps the reader figure out the movie name from the rest of the text, and may also help someone searching the web, who knows ?

    It absolutely helps. I guess I will use an apostrophe either end but must admit, when typing from a phone I'm generally too lazy to do it.

    Nb- I love your eclectic choices, especially those from Hollywood's Golden Age.
