    One of my all time top three (or so) favorite Hitchcock films!

The truth is that he took pleasure in this, for obscure reasons that perhaps even he could not have explained."

    J. Edgar (2011)

    Beautifully shot, expensively propertied, and stiff and shoddy in almost every other respect. Such is the gold standard for historical pictures in our day, but Clint Eastwood's heavy hand is evident in every second of J. Edgar. He pulls every punch he can get away with, perhaps because he reveres Hoover more than his audience does, and knows it. Leo DiCaprio apparently got his accent from Frank Langella's Nixon plus anyone who ever played a Kennedy. The air of stagey tension in every scene never varies or goes away. Deliberately underlit in Every. Freaking. Shot. Almost every car used is a Model A Ford.

    Simplicity never goes out of style, and never comes into fashion.

    Yes, yes. Why did I write "Market" instead? (Well, most of it takes place within the wholesale business...)

    Wow, what an indictment. And I was planning on seeing it...Almost every car used is a Model A Ford? (And that's a bad thing? )

    Saw the remastered 1927 silent movie "Wings" (with about 300 other fans) at the Stanford Theatre last night. Their organist, Dennis James, just blew me away with his masterful musical accompaniment to the over-2 1/2-hour movie, and even though this word is so overused, his talent rates no less than "amazing!" The film drew more of a crowd than the theatre expected, so the start was delayed in order for everyone to get in and during that time, Mr. James treated the audience to little bits of trivia about the movie and actors - things from his personal experience. It was a great experience, a thrilling movie that moved many around me to a shed a few tears.

    What did you think of it mate? Does the humour 'travel well'?
