And the surveillance cam-vision went on for a good 5 minutes which really seemed longer in a 70-ish minute flick. Anyway, I re-watched it from the beginning, and something that kinda had me shaking my head...made more sense. Is this a good flick...no. Too clever for it's own good. But good acting and beautiful cinematography...along with some guilty pleasure 'i wish this had been better' feelings, make this a decent watch as long as ya didn't pay for it.
    Agreed for the most part. I think Steve Zhan is an under rated actor. He's good in just about everything. The movie is not all that shocking, but I enjoyed it on a completely guilty pleasure level. My issue with the black and white section is the "Vanilla Sky" over simplification of the plot twist. I got it in ten seconds, no need to go on for five minutes. But with the average movie going crowd, people won't get it unless you beat them over the head with it.

    It was truly one of the most moving films I've seen in a long time. I thought it shared some themes with "The Wrestler," which, in a "kids" movie, is deep. I don't want to give any thing away, but I'd love to explain my theory further with anyone who has seen both films.

    Some years ago, just by coincidence, I watched Casablanca and Notorious for the first time, and I couldn't, but develop a crush on Ingrid Bergman. :D

    Have you watched Rebecca, Adgy? If not you should. It's another one of Hitch's 40's films that I LOVE!

    And here are some of the films that I have been watching lately.

    Cold Souls-Film staring Paul Giamatti about souls being able to be taken from bodies and stored or exchanged. Pretty interesting.

    Sleep Dealer- Mexican? or Maybe part Mexican and American science fiction film about this technology that allows people to connect and control machines in and outside of their countries as a job. I liked it because I just loved the concept and it worked well within the film.

    The Abandoned-Horror film about a woman who goes back to Russia to discover her roots and we all know that those type of trips don't do well. Nothing ground breaking, but I thought that it was interesting enough and there was some good atmosphere throughout.

    And I have also been watching a bunch of Masters of Horror episodes, which aren't technically movies, but close enough. I have enjoyed most of them.

    Unfortunately, I have not. I'm actually depressingly deficient when it comes to his early stuff. For now...

    His early stuff isn't as good as his fifties stuff. However, Rebecca, Notorious, and maybe Suspicion are MUST watch Hitch early films, but yeah, my man, Hitch hit his stride during the Fifties, at least, in my opinion, and then it all culminated in a 1960's film about Norman Bates.

    It's funny, but before my watching all of this stuff, I thought that Cary Grant was just a pretty boy, but he actually was a good actor, I mean didn't he show that in Notorious?

    Shadow of the Doubt is also a Hitch 40's movie one needs to watch. Actually, I was just thinking about that film this morning, but I was in a weird mood and was thinking about my time in Santa Rosa, which that film is set in. Joseph Cotten is in that film and it is awesome and it predates Psycho with the whole American Serial Killer thing!

    I watched the Girlfriend Experience this weekend. Didn't find it, or the characters, all that interesting. Didn't care.

    Also watched Young Frankenstein. Just an awesome collection of jokes, puns, gags, word play, sight gags. Love it. Also Blazing Saddles, great friggin' movie.
    Prince George: You know, Blackadder, for me socks are like sex. Lots of it about and I never seem to get any.

    Rope is also a 40's Hitch movie I'd recommend. And the 39 Steps for Hitch before coming to Hollywood.
