Sandy Hollywood, 16, running 'round the gravel green
Cinneclub, I'm finally paying my dues. Saw Mystic River a few weeks ago, caught In America last weekend or so, and Monster is coming via Netflix. Mystic River was flawed, but still an interesting watch. I thought that In America would bore the hell out of me, but it was much better than expected. My eyes actually watered up a bit. Granted I was a bit boozed up, tired, and laying on my side, but the movie was still quite touching. And I didn't fall asleep....I still need to see the infamous Hotel Rwanda and Inside Deep Throat, but I will be caught up after that. Yay me.
Also, I want to formally recommend two movies - City of God and The Ballad of Jack and Rose
City of God blew my mind. Death and carnage on the streets on Rio. Based on a true story too. Remarkable, beautiful, disturbing, and unforgettable movie. See it if you haven't.
Tonight I saw The Ballad of Jack and Rose, which officially opens on the 1st (free tickets courtesy of phil b). Great soundtrack (3 or 4 dylan songs), great acting, slightly disturbing, beautiful, and tragic. See it fools.
Also, movie club should have an expedition to see Emma's movie pick. imax films are always better in groups. And I don't think we've all seen each other in a while. Boooooo
