    Watched it on Netflix- an enjoyable dark comedy of sorts. Matt Damon and Julianne Moore on form.

    Anything 40's or 50's with Lake is great imo.

    The Third Generation (1979): A very deadpan black comedy about terrorism, directed by Rainer Werner Fassbinder. There is a plot to it (about the head of a computer business who finances a bunch of terrorists in order for them to kill people so he can force the state to buy new security computer systems from him), but the best scenes are those showing the commune life of the terrorists. Mostly, they just hang out in their apartment, having sex, taking drugs, watching TV, jerking off, spinning records - you get the idea. It's hilarious because they have absolutely no motivation behind their sheer will to be terrorists - like kids who want to be astronauts, they just think it's cool and all that. Their demand to free all political prisoners in Germany is only spoken out because that's how you do it, right? Sounds strange (and it IS a strange, very *off* movie), but very hilarious. Definitely no entry to Fassbinder, but if you are already used to his very artificial, theatrical style, you need to watch this.

    You're right. And you can always be assured you're gonna see a great film if it's on Criterion.

    If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium (1969).

    Legend has it that this may very well be the first film that was inspired by a cartoon (New Yorker Magazine), that featured that caption underneath it.
    Pretty good film if you don’t expect much about a group of Americans touring Europe.

    Saw it when it was released in the theater (and loved it) and maybe once on TV in the seventies, and it was exactly as I remembered it.
    The DVD print was good, got it from the library.

    Donovan performs Lord of the Reedy River in it and also wrote the theme song, though he didn’t sing it.

    I've been waiting years to see this again and can now cross this off my theatrical bucket list.

    Harriett-pretty good. certainly better than i expected. Cynthia Erivo was powerful. if you enjoy her or are interested in Harriet Tubman's story definitely check it out. i learned somethings.

    Jimmy B. I'm poor & sure wouldn't show off if I was rich.

    I saw Wait Until Dark again. (1967) Excellent suspense movie; my third viewing of it (best the first time).

    Notorious (1946) starring Ingrid Bergman, Cary Grant and Claude Rains.
    On MGM Blu-ray. I hadn't seen this in a while.
    Another great movie. I think Claude Rains gives the best performance in this actually.
    Not sure about a Criterion upgrade, the money...

    The Impossible, a very underrated movie about the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, with Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor. This is a really gripping story, realistically told, and is well worth watching.

    The Current War - - well done but I was a bit disappointed that Tesla wasn't featured more prominently. He was a far more intriguing genius than Edison or Westinghouse.

    All is Lost with Robert Redford. I loved it. It had me on the edge of my seat, which a movie rarely does anymore.

    I think this film would make it onto a top ten of all time for me.
