The ghost of George Sanders reminds you to link your films, and that one should feel free to move on if bored.

But you got plenty of horseshit.
Take your pick -- which do you want Linda posing in?
Kinky Sev, Yeah that's one I never considered. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah......
Q'd this one. - Thanks!
Captain Carey, U.S.A. (1950)
Despite the lame title it's a pretty good noir. Ladd doesn't quite cut it in a role similar to many of Bogart's. The film introduced the song "Mona Lisa" for which it won an Oscar.
Pierrot le Fou. Oh, what to say...? I guess I like Godard, but I can't claim to fully get everything he's doing (or perhaps I should say "he's trying out") - at least not after just one viewing. I like the way he has a playful attitude about movies, clearly he's having fun, putting movie references in there and there's a certain light touch that's very endearing. At the same time, though, he stuffs his movies full of philosophical references not all of which I catch. There's also a certain disconnect between the tone of the movie and what's actually happening in it (which is at the same time more playing with both the medium and the audience): Relationships forming and dissolving, fleeing from everyday life toward some sort of liberty which turns out to be boring and without money, with a criminal enterprise thrown in almost as an afterthought and, seemingly, a complete lack of focus on those elements in favor of a focus on the main characters involved in those things.
Yeah, like I said, I don't get everything he's doing.
It was right after he divorced Anna. I think it messed up his mind. You should try the bonus disc.
The movie is from '65 and they divorced in '67. I don't think the movie's messed up, it's just too crammed with themes/issues/points to absorb in one viewing, at least for me.
Scratch that, Wikipedia is wrong on the divorce date, they split up around the time of the shooting of Pierrot le Fou, but apparently only got formally divorced in 1967.
I got it from the bonus disc. May be "divorced" should be replaced with "she left him".
Yeah, I guess I'll have to rent that too...
Deadwood--TV series--didn't care for it, thought the profanity was overdone & unrealistic, I don't think people talked like that then, which I found distracting from the story. I think a thirty minute Gunsmoke works better for me.
Personally, I need dirty words more than vitamin C.
But I, too, found all the "cocksuckers", "motherfuckers", "asslickers", and "assholes" a mite jarring.
I only made it to the death of Wild Bill, however, which was early in the series.
