great movie. Jennifer Lawrence was great in it
Cornell Hockey - LETS GO RED!
A strange movie. The pacing and style took me a little while to get the hang of, and the ADR was off and the sound was pretty bad, but once I get used to it, it turned out to be a pretty damn good flick.
Based on the true story of a couple who went around swindling single ladies, stealing their money and killing them. It's not a very violent movie and both of the characters are pretty damn unlikable, but for some reason they were kind of... magnetic. Good use of black and white and solid performances (mostly).
I should mention that I watched this on cable and I have no idea if the Criterion DVD was at all able to fix the sound problems. I hope so. But the movie was clearly very low budget and it wouldn't surprise me if that was just the way it was made.
Perhaps one of the most hilariously miscast movies of all time featuring Liberace being involved in a love triangle...with TWO WOMEN??? You also knew that he was in trouble when he had to step away from the piano and actually had to act... The Razzie Guide didn't do this one justice...but it was pretty close...
The movie was "Sincerely Yours"...

Just saw "The Limey" again, after about ten years. Great flick. Originally meant to cast Michael Caine in the title role, but I think it would be too similar to "Get Carter" if Caine was the lead. Soderberg used footage from a thirty-year-old movie starring Stamp for flashback shots, a very cool move I've never seen before. An unheralded movie well worth putting in your Netflix cue.
Saw this again this morning. The director, Edward Zwick, makes beautiful movies about war and it's consequences(this and Glory). Great performances...say what you want about T.C., but dude is a helluva an actor. The premise is a bit shaky, but it's just so good it's hard to complain. Hey Adgy, when you watch this do you fantasize that it's you in the Cruise part??? B.T.W. Watanabe is a badass, so is Hiroyuki Sanada.
