Mrs. Washington Goes to Smith [F]
Altered States [A]
What is that first one? A porno? "Altered States"
is the next movie I'm going to watch. Your rating makes me optimistic. The last three movies I watched were "The Last Temptation of Christ"
, "The Sting"
, and "Carnal Knowledge"
. They were all very good, but "The Last Temptation of Christ"
was a little too long. I liked it a lot at the start...I really appreciated its depiction of Jesus as a soft-spoken man who tried his damnedest to reason with everyone and avoid violence, but his transformation to a much more aggressive person and the crazy hallucinatory fantasies towards the end confused me and diminished my interest in the movie a bit. It was still solid overall and I'm glad I watched it, but it's my least favourite of the Scorsese movies I've seen.
It's always nice to see someone discovering Woody Allen's movies. He's my favourite director. I set aside some time every year to see some of his movies that I've never seen before (usually towards the end) as a special occasion. I recommend checking out "Crimes and Misdemeanors"
and "Hannah and Her Sisters"
next. They are my favourites after the two that have been mentioned. "Sleeper"
, "The Purple Rose of Cairo"
, and "Love and Death"
are terrific too.
Jeez, Harvey! 55 in two months? I've been proud of myself for squeezing 60 into a year for the past few years! I figure even 52 in a year is a lot, since it would mean one movie a week, and that's more than a lot of people would watch. You are certainly prolific when it comes to moviewatching.
I only go to the theatre about 6 times a year because there are so many old movies I want to see as I hope to see every classic ever made!
