  1. I really like it. It develops the idea in some interesting, different directions recalling paranoid thrillers like Three Days of the Condor or The Parallax View.

    My favorite Altman film with a great ensemble cast and an Oscar winning screenplay by Julian Fellows. Watched the DVD.

    Gosford Park (2001) 10/10
    [​IMG]

    Set in the 1930s, a group of pretentious rich and famous get together for a weekend of relaxation at a hunting resort. But when a murder occurs, each one of these interesting characters becomes a suspect.

    The Pledge 2001, A Jack Nicholson film I missed, an adaptation of a book directed by Sean Pean. Nicholson plays a police chief beginning retirement when a little girl is murdered and he pledges to help the mother find her daughter's killer. Done well. One of the takeaways I think is that people within law enforcement get PTSD too.

    Polytechnique.

    A French Canadian drama about a real life school shooting which happened in 1989. It's a tough film to watch but it's thoughtful and very well made. Shot in monochrome.

    The Equalizer 3. Much better than it needed to be for the third entry in a minor thriller series. Nice leisurely build-up and the violence when it comes is reassuringly gritty. I'll stretch to 8/10

    Glass Onion (2022) - well paced and entertaining. A little confusing as the acting seemingly oscillates between bad and good but turns out that’s part of the plot. Visually enjoyable.

    Escape from the Planet of the Apes

    Always enjoyed this one, as it starts somewhat comedic and ends on a pretty dark note. 8/10

    There aren't a lot of mass shootings in Canada.
    This one was particularly horrific. All the victims were female students which the killer labelled as feminists and his sole reason for murdering them.
    A grim movie.

    Convention City - (1933) - 16mm print / Presented in 1.33:1 - Another wacky Warner Brothers pre-code comedy with a lot of drinking and sex during the Honeywell Rubber convention in Atlantic City. Great cast with Joan Blondell, Dick Powell, Mary Astor, Frank McHugh and Guy Kibble, who steals the film. Not sure why this not shown on TCM or isn't on blu-ray, but it’s a pretty entertaining film, but a tad racy at times.

    *** out of ****

    I love this film! I'm a sucker for these kind of Agatha Christie country house whodunnits, but the murder mystery takes second place to all the interesting characters and their interwoven stories. It's really one of the great ensembles, and the way that Altman moves the camera around is absolute genius. It's also my favourite of his films.

    it still amazes me how a movie made in 1971 about 1951 in B/W is so timeless still 53 years later

    Its a 10/10 movie from me

    You should have had a double feature with London After Midnight.

    Poor Things. It was tough getting thru the first half or so of the film. It requires patience. Wildly creative. Great acting by Emma Stone. Set Design A+.
    Overall grade 4/5.

    I'm not a fan of gross thriller movies but this movie is as compelling as it was when I watched it on first release. Hasn't aged a bit.

    This movie made such an impression I didn't register it was in black and white.

    That's strange because the picture was there when I posted it.
    I like your comments about as much a Selznick pic as hitchcock, that explains a lot. And I'm glad to see someone agrees with me about being over-rated.

    Daedalus I haven't heard it all.....

    The Feast. A Welsh-language horror film. Extremely good strangely bizarre movie based on the oldest tale in the British Isles. Rating: 85.
