    Dark City.

    Haven't seen this for awhile, but watched it yesterday. Still terrific, but I found the concluding dueling scene rather tiresome.

    "Outlaw Justice" with Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Travis Tritt, and a cameo by Waylon Jennings.

    I thought that was a very creative and original type movie, along with The Thirteenth Floor.

    "Sorcerer" (1977, Friedkin) (eOne BR):

    "Sorcerer", Friedkin's re-do of the novel that also gave us "Wages of Fear", has to be approached the way you approach a Boorman film: it's full of little indulgences that are there simply because 'the director likes them'.

    The title makes no sense. Friedkin has explained it, but the truck could have been named anything, and so could the film.
    That out of the way, the movie, in its best moments, has some astounding sequences and great visual beauty, in the Herzog "Jungle iz Deadly but also Poetic" mode.

    Friedkin gives us a lot more backstory to the characters trapped in the little hellhole town, and it's not really for the better. By the time the trucks roll, you are more aware of who might survive, as opposed to Clouzot's original where you really can't anticipate it.

    The film is a reminder of what suffering and hard location work brings to the screen, as opposed to controlled studio effects: you sweat and fear with these people as the primordial-looking trucks crash through the hostile landscapes, and by the time you get 2/3rds through the film, you are well primed for anything to happen (you also wonder how many people got injured during the filming.)

    The difference between "WoF" and "Sorcerer" is more than in the decades: "WoF" is crisp and methodical in merciless B/W; "Sorcerer" is wild Nature and The Evil of Men in grubby lovely color.

    For the telling of the story, I prefer Clouzot's version; as an expression of a director's vision, flaws and all, Friedkin's film is an achievement in itself that is well worth seeing if you like eccentric movie-making.

    The British Entertainment One blu-ray, from a 4K scan, looks and sounds superb. Excellent film grain, beautiful authoring and a re-mixed 5.1 audio track (stereo available) that really works.

    Just bought The Thief With James Caan. Saw it when it was but had forgot about it. The diner scene is good. Cant figure out if it was a set or location.

    A Few Good Men 1992

    I enjoy Tom Cruise but old Jack could outplay him in his sleep. Both men does anger and intensity in the court room scenes. Tom Cruise is shouting, while Jack Nicholson is acting brilliantly. His eyes and his great voice. A pleasure to watch.
