Me Before You
#52FilmsByWomen And there was much rejoicing. I honestly did not believe I’d ever get this far way back in January, but I did and I made it to 52. That kind of means the challenge part is over, so now it’s time to find myself some new goals. I could […]

52 Films By Women – September 2016

Paramount on Parade
#52FilmsByWomen Whew. I’m a bit late this time to finish this post. The reason is motivation. I really can’t be bothered to write about films I did not like, and I really did not like most of the films I’ve seen this past month. MUBI kind of dried up over the […]

52 Films By Women – August 2016

#52FilmsByWomen After four days of July, the #52FilmsByWomen ‘o meter (™) was already at +4 (although to be fair one was a 25 minute documentary). That should make it no surprise that this is going to be a fairly long post. I guess sometimes you just have too much time, and too […]

Red Beard
Red Beard It is only the first time I pick a Kurosawa film to write about. Red Beard is not one of his most famous ones, but it does appear to be among his best. Its length of just over three hours is not very inviting for a casual film watch so […]

Red Beard – Akira Kurosawa – 1965

Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid
Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid Back in the 40’s and 50’s Hollywood was bringing out dozens of films noirs every year. They probably didn’t realise it back then, but they were making films of a type that transcends time, or at least they have until now. Some of them, like The Maltese […]

Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid – Carl Reiner – 1982
