Jeanne Moreau reading
I've seen some good movies in the last two weeks. Didn't expect to like FROST/NIXON but I did. The two actors are just outstanding and the battle of egos is riveting. Watergate never gets old for us.
MILK- Sean Penn-Josh Brolin, what can I say. Sure there's a predictability and preachiness about it, but maybe we need that once in a while. And biopics are always predictable.
BEAUTY IN TROUBLE was very fine. Do you go with sexuality or security if you're a poor Eastern European woman with kids? I don't know.
My husband watched THE NAKED SPUR while I was out one night and thought Mann made a compelling movie.
We both liked CONVERSATIONS WITH WOMEN with Helena Bonham Carter and Aaron Eckhart. The constant usage of split screen seemed a bit pretentious and a bit 1970s, but it was interesting.
What have you been watching at home or at the theater? With all these reruns we need some help.
