The Good German (2006)

ACHIEVEMENT IN MUSIC WRITTEN FOR MOTION PICTURES (Original Score) The story is that while in post-war Berlin to cover the Potsdam Conference, an American military journalist is drawn into a murder investigation which involves his former mistress and his driver. The film stars Jack Thompson as Congressman Breimer, John Roeder as General, George Clooney as Capt. Jacob 'Jake' Geismer, Tobey Maguire as Patrick Tully and Cate Blanchett as Lena Brandt. This film is an homage to film noir which were almost always crime stories about naive men dragged into terrible circumstances through the lure of seductive and dangerous women.... and since this film stars George Clooney and Cate Blanchett, how can you go wrong?

The film is based on the Orphean myth and on Giuseppe Verdi's opera La Traviata. It tells the story of a young, English poet Christian who falls in love with the star of the Moulin Rouge, cabaret actress and courtesan Satine. Both characters break out into love songs of all my favorite hits.

You could dismiss this movie as another drug movie but Drugstore Cowboy a bit more than that. The 1989 crime drama written and directed by Gus Van Sant introduces to an ensemble that today still makes us fall in love with Matt Dillon, Kelly Lynch, Heather Graham, and William S. Burroughs. Filmed mainly around Portland the story follows drug addicts as they travel across the US Pacific Northwest in the early 70s, supporting their habit by robbing pharmacies and hospitals. A highlight of the film is an appearance by recovering addict William S. Burroughs a defrocked priest who lectures Matt's character on the dangers of temptation. After a tragedy strikes the gang-Matt's character decides to try to "go straight," but finds that its not the drug that keeps bound, well I won't tell you more in case you decide to watch. PS: the soundtrack has been my favorite 15 years.

Couldn't figure out how I hadn't seen any reviews of it. Recently did a theater version, so it's a tale dear to my heart. It's a timeless family story. A musical but well-timed. Classic!

I didn't think I'd like another P&P version other than the classic with Laurence Olivier but this one is lovely. I like how for a period piece it keeps everything "real" down to the mud at the bottom of the girls' gowns as they traipse through the mud during their walks through the countryside. And Keira Knightley isn't annoying in this at all.

From the time they first met as young magicians on the rise, Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman) and Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) were competitors. However, their friendly competition evolves into a bitter rivalry making them fierce enemies-for-life and consequently jeopardizing the lives of everyone around them. Full of twists and turns, 'The Prestige' is set against the backdrop of turn-of-the-century London. The cast includes Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson and David Bowie. Recently, we saw 'The Illusionist' with Edward Norton which we really liked and it was also set against the backdrop of turn-of-the-century London. The movie really delivers and is not one to be missed.

Given that Elizabeth Taylor turned 75 on February 27, it's only fitting to look back at one of her earliest films, made when she was only 11 or 12. In this adaptation of Charlotte Bronte's classic novel, she plays Helen Burns, Jane's friend at boarding school. She makes a luminous entrance as Jane is standing on a box for punishment and befriends Jane. Later, Helen dies in Jane's arms as they sleep, and Helen's death is heralded by a tea kettle running out of steam. Surprisingly, Elizabeth Taylor's performance went uncredited! Joan Fontaine plays the adult Jane and Orson Welles plays Mr. Rochester. Child actress Margaret O'Brien plays Mr. Rochester's French ward Adele. Shame on Netflix for not carrying this film!

ACHIEVEMENT IN MUSIC WRITTEN FOR MOTION PICTURES (Original Score) In the remote sands of the Moroccan desert, a rifle shot rings out--detonating a chain of events that will link an American tourist couple’s frantic struggle to survive, two Moroccan boys involved in an accidental crime, a nanny illegally crossing into Mexico with two American children and a Japanese teen rebel whose father is sought by the police in Tokyo. Separated by clashing cultures and sprawling distances, each of these four disparate groups of people are nevertheless hurtling towards a shared destiny of isolation and grief. In the course of just a few days, they will each face the dizzying sensation of becoming profoundly lost--lost in the desert, lost to the world, lost to themselves--as they are pushed to the farthest edges of confusion and fear as well as to the very depths of connection and love. The film stars Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Gael Garcia Bernal, Elle Fanning and Koji Yakusho. The film depicts the lack of communication and intolerance among people. From the precarious situation of undocumented Mexicans and destitute Moroccan families, couples in crisis, dysfunctional families and the shadow of terrorism, Babel's somewhat pontifical attitude clouds its beautiful message. An interesting film nonetheless...

PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE - Helen Mirren I feel Oscar performance for Helen Mirren on her portrayal of the Queen as Princess Diana's distant mother-in-law. Following Diana's shocking death on August 30, 1997, the Queen seemed strikingly out of touch with her people and prime minister, Tony Blair. She retreated to Balmoral, Scotland, unwilling to shed a public tear over the death of her former daugher-in-law. Mirren herself has asked that question: 'Does it hurt her to show a little emotion? Isn't that what she's there for?' The movie is a very good and intimate reflection of the battle between private and public, responsibility and emotion, rituals and action as a grieving nation waits to see what its leaders will do. Absolutely recommend!!

PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE - Forest Whitaker The buzz has been really great and I like Forest Whitaker. The story is about a newly graduated young doctor, Nicolas from Scotland, who goes to Uganda in 1970s hoping that he can offer his help to the Ugandan people. Instead of serving the poor, he mets the charismatic Uganda dictator Idi Amin and his life is forever changed. I have decided that Forest Whitaker has an Oscar worthy performance as 'Idi Amin Dada. It is almost possible to forget that he is acting. The movie has a documentary visual style that captures the energy and exuberance of a young nation in the throes of optimism and works it into a foreboding frenzy. A must see!! I highly recommend.

The subject is particularly interesting. Set against the backdrop of civil war and chaos in 1990's Sierra Leone, Blood Diamond is the story of Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) - a South African mercenary - and Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou) - a Mende fisherman. Both men are African, but their histories as different as any can be, until their fates become joined in a common quest to recover a rare pink diamond that can transform their lives. While in prison for smuggling, Archer learns that Solomon - who was taken from his family and forced to work in the diamond fields - has found and hidden the extraordinary rough stone. With the help of Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly), an American journalist whose idealism is tempered by a deepening connection with Archer, the two men embark on a trek through rebel territory, a journey that could save Solomon's family and give Archer the second chance he thought he would never have.

Based on the true story, FBI upstart Eric O'Neill enters into a power game with his boss, Robert Hanssen, an agent who was ultimately convicted of selling secrets to the Soviet Union. The film stars Catherine Burdon as Agent Debra Nece, Jeffrey Coleman as FBI Agent #1 and Chris Cooper as Robert Hanssen. I followed the story while it unfolded and read a great article about it in 'Vanity Fair'. We just saw the movie yesterday and I wasn't disappointed. Chris Cooper and Ryan Phillippe are extraordinary as Robert Hanssen and Eric O'Neill. I highly recommend!
