Wow! This book sounds great--Stanwyck is one of my favorites from that era, and I love movies from the 30s and 40s in general. Everything about them was better, but especially the way roles for women were written. Modern "rom coms" just seem so insipid compared to The Lady Eve or Woman of the Year.
I haven't heard of a lot of these movies, and I just hope I can find them somewhere--even Netflix has a very limited selection of old movies. (And I wish movie theaters showed them more often. I saw Bringing Up Baby--my favorite screwball comedy--on the big screen a couple years ago and it was such a treat! It was wonderful to watch it after all these years with an audience!)
Nice photo. Hi, Roy!
I program a summer film series, and have run into this very problem with WB. "Can you use a DVD?" they ask. Problem is, DVDs routinely look *horrible* when projected on a giant movie screen. Blu-rays are a little better, but have nowhere near the luminosity of at 35mm print, or a well-done DCP.
There are also Bresson men. It's unseamly to overlook the vibrant homoeroticism of "A Man Escaped," "Pickpocket," "Au Hasard Balthazar" and "Le Diable Probablement."
I have a filling that your every post is most popular. I think your work is amazing and i like it every time.

find out more about real Scarlett by typing Scarlett Johansson clone in Google search bar and you would see much more then in The Island movie..
It seems you missed the point of the movie if you feel that the mother had no complexity. She was, in fact, one of the most complex characters of the story. (Not to mention that was an amazing performance by Kim Wayans, who up until now, has only done comedy.)
Although the mother's actions are deplorable, in her mind, she is acting out of love and faith. Perhaps you haven't had the experience of dealing with parents or people who struggle to reconcile their faith with their close relationships, but I have and trust me, her character is very true to life.
It's true, I didn't think this movie was very good. Here's a proposal: when the DVD is released next year, you and I can get together with a couple of beers and try figuring out the cause of our disagreement.
Steve MacFarlane...What world are you living in? Get off of your high horse, chill out and re-watch the movie...and this time, try to see it without your ego. I can hear your ego screaming all through your review. Why so scornful?
Wow, you really didn't like this film, did you? Personally I found it rather delightful, insightful and sincere. Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks.
Deeply Felt was also the name of my pool (billiards) team.
Bravo, Henry. Well written.
oh man i read that one back in the 70's, twice, it was something that was like the opposite of the music i was so hooked on at the time, and ironically, proceeds from this book and the more famous Kesey novel were used to send the Merry Pranksters on the road to infamy. I have not seen the movie, but am happy to see it re-released, a must see for me , a must read for anyone interested in a seriously strong cup of literature
Hello all, so i researched your subject and found out hes a complete loser. Word is he doesn't even take care of his so called son. So how is he suppose to be working at a bowling alley to support his son when all i see around is him traveling and getting wasted and making a complete ass of himself at the Milwualke premiere. This person is not struggling, he does it to himself and wants to make you feel sorry for him. I despise people like that, I would rather record myself wiping my buns then to watch such a nonsense of a film. Getting drunk, high, and abandoning his son is not a hero, so don't waste your money on this film because the money will go towards his next fix.
Pauline was wrong about Matthew Modine. He's a terrific actor.
Very nice review. That exasperating quality of Goodman's—as well as why the guy was so hot—come off palpably in the film. More at www.paulgoodmanfilm.com. See you at Film Forum!

all these re-makes make me want to kill myself
Well, this has me pretty psyched to see a doc I never imagined would be made. Among college professors in my early career, the biggest influence after Carl Rogers. His understanding of modern institutions is way off on big points, but he took the huge step of actually regarding them *as* institutions and attempting to understand their social goals.
I'm sure Walt Whitman was unbearable much of the time, too.
I could NOT disagree with you more.
Public Access curation suffers from the lack of diversity of evidence. Digging up the 1970's and 80's seems akin to paleontology. But the rareness is determined not by the scarcity of fossils but by the time and effort by the curators which seems to be limited.
My program "Videowave" went through that crude clanky era in public access yet its still on the air. Why no one even inquired about my series or others shows a lack of investigation skills.
