Here is what I watched this week.The House on Telegraph Hill (dir. Robert Wise, 1951)
A great, intense film noir.
Water for Elephants (dir. Francis Lawrence, 2011)
A decent adaptation of Sara Gruen’s best selling novel. It loses momentum because Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson have almost zero chemistry together. In fact, I have more chemistry with that Florence + The Machine song that was used during the trailer.
The Big Lebowski (dir. Joel and Ethan Coen, 1998)
I had some how gone through my life without seeing The Big Lebowski in its entirety until this weekend. I didn’t think this was a big deal but everyone else does. As with every Coen brothers movie, I need and want to see it again.
