Beals must have had a brief part. I don't remember her at all. I thought Bacon's was a fun little vignette.

If the author could go around the place hitting random readers with a rubber hammer, the Pink Pig would still be worth a visit.

I thought Beals was weak in Devil with a Blue Dress, an otherwise fine little film.

whatever happened to baby jane? for the xth time. a visit down memory lane. what a great film.

intolerable cruelty even though zeta-jones nad clooney had good chemistry, this film was a snore--lacks the usual coen perversity and visual pranks.

sylvia i thought i would hate it, especially during the first thirty minutes. but it got better, with paltrow as a very convincing pissed off poet--just not sure she was a convincing plath. if anyone else has seen it, i have to ask: did you think this film let hughes off the hook? what's the scoop? was plath an intolerable harpy? according to this screenplay, at least, she seemed to drive him away. my hunch is that plath was nothing like paltrow depicted her, but that paltrow was given the role because she's smart--you know, smart actress portrays smart poet. but i've always imagined plath as far more inscrutable than morose & angry.

Soylent Green. Seen it previously only the onct, during its 1973 original release when I was 13. Really smashingly unexpectedly great movie. Excepting Edward G. Robinson as the old guy, but still, the rest, unexpectedly great. An almost Antonioni-Tarantinoesque use of music to compel and manipulate.

Wanted the 12-year-old to see it before the all-important ending was spoilered -- dunno how we avoided that considering how "it's people" has been a well-used, some gloomy Guses might say overly so, part of my personal lexicon lo, these 30 years.

Next up: 1971's Omega Man, and its first interracial movie kiss. Also its almost-equally-important contribution to the aforementioned personal lexicon: "Join us! Join us!" See also, "Oh, he's a real Matthias," as shorthand for a describing a cult-leader-type personality.

We're getting confused here. Jennifer Beals had a small part (I'm not sure she even spoke) in The Runaway Jury, another movie we rented recently.

Appalachian Journey: Yo Yo Ma/Edgar Meyer/Mark O'Connor (not too good; I like Yo Yo Ma in a classical capacity better; performance in NY coming up -- I'm looking forward to seeing him perform live for the first time)

Pix, do you have the problem that people in the "business' have re food (deconstructing and criticising food on the plate to an extreme). That is do you concentrate on the drawings and matte work to an extreme, thereby taking some pleasure away from the overall experience of just watching the movie?

Like my wife will tell me..."Oh, shut up and just eat!" :D
