I downloaded the update for Microsoft Silverlight on my Mac and now I cannot get Netflix to play! :( I’ve tried deleting the program but am unable to. This is shit. Anyone have advice??

The movie that made me love old movies. And all movies, come to think of it.

Ca$h (#36)

The French like their capers glossy, fully of reversals, and light on the character development (though high in the number of character) and this is a prime example of all issues but also their successes. Thanks to some simmeringly beautiful leads (whaddup Jean Dujardin), Ca$h is fun to look at. The plotting is impressively intricate and balanced so that the ending payoff is strong but the story itself fails to match the constant twists and turns and the movie ends up feeling longer than its 100min run time. I’d have liked one less twist and one more iota of character development but I guess I’ll have to take what is so beautifully given.

For what it’s worth, I can’t remember ever having kissed any other woman before.

Girl on a Bicycle (#35)

I was expecting a cute French rom com but instead got this messy amalgamation of Italian, French, English and German money put into a romance movie. Everything ends up feeling tedious and drawn out to formula (especially toward the end) but is saved by a very good turn from the beautiful Nora Tschirner. Paddy Considine plays a caricature of himself  while Louise Monot is beautiful and little else. Vincenzo Amato is good, but ultimately a little too old to match his leading lady. Not particularly worth watching.

"Hemingway and James Joyce were drinking buddies in Paris. Joyce was thin and bespectacled; Hemingway was tall and strapping. When they went out Joyce would get drunk, pick a fight with a bigger guy in the bar and then hide behind Hemingway and yell, “Deal with him, Hemingway. Deal with him.”"

Between this and the story about him reassuring F. Scott Fitzgerald re dick size, I’m developing a picture of Hemingway as the mother hen of the disaffected white male literary set of the early 20th century.

He probably called up Steinbeck sometimes and was like I CAN’T EVEN WITH THESE DIPSHITS and Steinbeck was all “That’s what you get for living in Paris, asshole”.

THAT STORY ABOUT HEMINGWAY TELLING F. SCOTT HIS DICK IS NORMAL, THOUGH.

“They were showing clips from my earlier films. All I could see was this beautiful young woman who was anxious about whether she was too heavy or if her nose was too big. I felt like saying to her, ‘Just relax and it will all be OK.’” -Meryl Streep

This is amazing. Thank you to A24 Films for tweeting it.

Point Break (#34)

Oh the guy emotions. Oh the many climaxes. Oh the adrenaline. Oh the barely concealed soapiness. I’m a little torn because on the one hand, there are really brilliant and iconic moments here; mostly anything involving the Presidents (which is really inspired) and the moments of insane adrenaline. Kathryn Bigelow does a good job pulling solid performances from really bad actors (Keanu Reeves and Gary Busey are both shit but this is the best you’ll ever see them) and surprisingly introspective performances from middling actors (holla to Patrick Swayze). Ultimately, though, the film runs too long on too little, spending too many moments in wondering will-they-or-won’t-they between Bodhi and Johnny to the point where it’s just tiresome. This lengthiness is a point I’ve noticed in most of Bigelow’s films and is what I would target as her major weakness that ultimately lessens an otherwise exciting film.

Stage Door (#33)

The movie starts with so much noise and such fast talking as to be almost unintelligible but after a few minutes I was praising it as one of the wittiest and sharpest female comedies of all time and by the end I had tears in my eyes. More people should watch this movie not only because of the sharp dialogue and shifts, but because it really is extraordinary that aside from a small handful of characters (one of them being the villain), it’s an entirely female piece with amazing performances. Ginger Rogers is a positive gem while Katherine Hepburn finally sold me on her beauty and skills and you also have Lucille Ball in an early non-slapstick role. It’s really the stunning Oscar nominated Andrea Leeds who steals the show, though. Her broken and tragic performance as the delicate aspiring Kay was riveting. Thumbs up for the movie as a whole. I’d love to see a stage production. Girl power!
