    That whole buzz was a mystery to me, too, after seeing the film.

    PTA fumbles the "multi-ball" mode with this film. It actually wasn't busy enough.

    One shot I liked was Este's reaction to something Alana accuses her of thinking. It was well shot and a great reaction. I wanted more of Alana and her interactions with the family. She's a 25 year old woman who lives at home seeing a 15 year old boy! There was lots of energy there.

    BTW in the 70s rent was cheap. I didn't know anyone who lived at home past 20. It happens a lot now but back then - we graduated and we were out!

    Even the listing on Amazon Prime video has a big banner "ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATED". Audiences would rather be the ones to decide who the Next Big Thing is going to be rather than have it forced on them.

    And he's in the discussion again for his performance in Hustle.

    I think she gave a solid performance, and she seems to have some innate talent and screen presence but agree the hype was unjustified. And probably created a little skepticism about the merits of the movie.

    I was expecting for someone to say that. And, of course, it had to be you!

    Oh hell, Inherent Vice. I actually like that a lot (although I have no idea what's going one sometimes). I would make that number Five over punch drunk

    I hate Boogie Nights and Licorice Pizza, love There Will Be Blood, Punch-drunk Love and The Master, never seen any of the others.

    Some folks hate Astral Weeks and Forever Changes but love London Calling and Court and Spark. We can still be friends! (lol)

    Loved the vibe and acting. Wished they would have done more with the aging child actor angle. Many scenes went on way too long and some should have been dropped(Penn, Waits, Cooper).
    So every other 70s man was going to disappoint Allana except Gary? When the credits rolled I asked the wife "huh, so thats how it ends?"
    Why the hell was Garry arrested?

    Would not watch again or recommend.

    Pynchon put a lot of period music in his book, perhaps imagining it taking place in a...movie. But who's going to clear the rights for both "Interstellar Overdrive" or "The Icecaps Are Melting"?
