'Dead Mans Shoes (2014)' Just finished watching for the second time. Brilliant. 

2004, right?

I am not a Malcolm McDowell completist, and yes, he is still alive. However a few of my favorite films ever are O Lucky Man! and Clockwork Orange.

So I watched a film he starred in the same year as Clockwork Orange (1973), Long Ago Tomorrow, and I was blown away by his performance. 

 

Title Song O Lucky Man!

Just watched “Law Abiding Citizen”, good picture

Yep one of my faves.............

 

Just watched "Serenity" with Matthew McConaughey and thought it a bit of a fizzer; shame as I like him as an actor and he was superb in The Dallas Buyers club.

All 8 episodes of season 2 are now available.

 

Season 1 was a cracker.

 

Summary: In 2008, a fight over land in a seaside town near Rome spirals into a deadly battle between organized crime,

corrupt politicians and the Vatican.

He's had some great turns in episodic TV recently:

 

The Mentalist

Franklin & Bash

Entourage

Mozart in the Jungle

 

According to IMDB, he's active with ~ 12 projects in post-/pre-production currently.

El Angel

Based on a true Argentinian story.

Almodovar was involved.

I'm trying to watch more Spanish language stuff lately … open to more suggestions.

All four are very good - hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Amores Perros was an absolute belter.

I'll check out the ones I haven't seen.

 

"Amores Perros - great movie with Gael Garcia Bernal.

Agree - Inarritu's best film by far, his first.

(It's true of a lot of directors - their 1st or 2nd film is the one where they get it all together and never match it later).

 

"Timecrimes - really enjoyed this.

 

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0480669/"

 

Agree also. I went on a viewing spree and saw about 5 films total in that genre - all the modern ones I could find - about a year ago. This was superior to all the others- also it's the one with the lowest budget.

[There was one other I saw that is memorable - "Predestination" (2014) - that I want to see again. Actually, it may be as good a film, just very different].

 

After seeing the film - There are lots of posts discussing it on IMDB, including someone who did flow charts, trying to track the intricacies of the story.

 

I think about this film periodically and look forward to eventually seeing it again.

I'd like to thank the poster who recommended "Fyre Fraud".

 

I had never heard of the Fyre Festival. Two documentaries were made on this fiasco - this one and "Fyre", both 2019 releases.

 

Fascinating trainwreck/con job.

 

Most people who mentioned both on IMDB recommended "Fyre" as a bit better and/or the one to watch first, so I went with that.

Then watched "Fyre Fraud". They both have a lot of unique footage and also have common footage.

"Fyre"

 

I also thought "Fyre" was better, but enjoyed both.

Says a lot about "social media" "influencers", and modern marketing.

(I've thought of these films when I see Kamala Harris being marketed as a USA Presidential candidate, trying to manipulate her image and going for what they think social media followers will buy).
