what i watched last week
international law

what’s next (no question mark)

So, here’s what’s next:

I’m going to give the “requests” idea a chance. It’s risky, because I have such a small regular readership, with even fewer people who comment. But it was the most popular of my proposed “what’s nexts”.

I’ll start with a bank of movies I can use when there are no new requests. These will come from places that people have asked about in the past: movies from my “#51-79” list, movies that Phil/Jeff listed on their Fave Fifties that I haven’t seen (on the assumption that those fave lists were a kind of suggestion), and a couple of older movies people have mentioned that I haven’t gotten around to watching yet. That gives me a little more than 40 movies to pick from.

If you want me to watch and write about any specific movie, just leave a comment, or leave me an email (one person used that method already).

I’ll start tomorrow with The Last Picture Show, which was #65 on my #51-79 Faves List.



How about Fahrenheit 451? I've been enamored of this one lately but maybe because of the score by Bernard Herrmann.

I can do that. Haven't seen it in a gazillion years, and I have access to it. It goes to the top of the list, should get to it in a week or so. Thanks!


Here goes...The Parallax View; Miller's Crossing; Dazed and Confused; The Empire Strikes Back; Man Bites Dog; Barton Fink; Reservoir Dogs; Short Cuts; Big Night; Hearts & Minds; Jackie Brown

Thank you! And it looks nicely researched ... I don't think I've written about any of those.

Ones I own and thus can do, no problem: Dazed and Confused, Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown
Ones I don't own but can watch for a coupla bucks: Man Bites Dog, Barton Fink. Big Night, Parallax View
Ones I don't own but can probably rent: Empire Strikes Back
Ones I don't own that will be hard to get: Short Cuts, Hearts and Minds
One I own but don't like so I probably won't watch it again: Miller's Crossing

So I'll put all but Miller's Crossing on the list. I really appreciate this. It's a nice list of movies I've seen and liked, and movies I've missed for some reason that I look forward to.


What is your thing with Miller's Crossing? It's the best Cohen brothers movie EVER!!
