Saw this on Netflix and decided to check it out, interesting so far.
Interesting. No mention of Paul Auster that I've found, but I wonder if it could be a loose adaptation of this book:
Going by the Wiki plot summary, no not related. This film goes in reverse chronological order and I quite liked it, nothing mindblowing but pretty damn sad story.
I saw this when I was like 10, the toxic waste scene freaked me the fuck out.
Just got back from Doctor Sleep. Absolutely blown away. The trailer made it look very fanservicey but I found the better part of the movie to be pretty damn original (long-distance psionic duels between a clan of vampires and a recovering alcoholic and his child protege? Fuck. Yes.) The Overlook Hotel segment was the only part of the movie that didn't totally work for me, I think due to contradictions between King's and Kubrick's respective visions of the Overlook. Even that had its moments. Overall, a near-masterpiece.
Glad to hear, I was planning to see it out of loyalty to King and Kubrick but wasn't holding my breath.
There are so many old Polish movies on Netflix right now, very cool but I wonder why? I saw Ryś (The Lynx) was on there which I have already seen, but decided to watch it again and loved it even more.
New York sewage, the only thing that can truly "kill" Jason
This was by far my favorite scene ...
I was always partial to this.
Julius had him staggered, just couldn’t finish.
First time watching Jason Takes Manhattan and The Curse of Michael Myers. Both were fun but i liked Halloween more. My slasher marathon continues ...
Just saw Gaslight.
First off, Ingrid Bergman is fucking incredible. I know the ingenue archetype is something of a historical artifact by now, but the way she pulls it off is pure magic, all the more so because her acting and character are such a product of the times.
I think I've gotten better at noticing the subtle details of noir cinematography, cause there was a scene at the beginning where she moves forward from shadow into sunlight, right as this guy she's talking to says something that makes her face light up with joy, and the synergy between the light and her emotions just blew me away.
The abusive relationship makes this hard to watch for a while, but I got more into it toward the end as the focus turns toward her crazy monologues.
i haven’t seen it but ingrid bergman is one of those golden age movie stars who has a completely magnetic unforgettable screen presence. love a bit of joseph cotten too.
I have a mild obsession with Bergman.
I've been meaning to watch Gaslight simply because Bergman's in it and I love her performance in Notorious. Definitely see that if you haven't already.
Bergman was one of the best of the classic Hollywood starlets. Top-tier. Notorious is brilliant, but my favorite of her Hitchcock roles is Spellbound.
And of course Casablanca is an amazing film.
Barbara Stanwyk is my favourite starlet from that era. Totally different to Bergman though; Stanwyk was all sass, wit and sex appeal.
