(ag) wrote: This kind of gnomic deadpan is an acquired taste - a familiarity with, and fondness for, early Jarmusch might help - yet even if Eimbcke tends to hold them at a studied arm (or camera)'s length, rarely moving in for a close-up, his young people do look, think and act like young people; and if the film does nothing more than drive several times around the same block, avoiding the issues its protagonist has waiting for him at home, there's a freshness and confidence in the way it finds new angles to pursue, and unexpected (albeit minor) roads to go down.

And I'd never heard of Z Channel at all, prior to this doc. Definitely worth checking out, especially if you're a film buff. If you're a film buff, this is a must-watch.

I'm not quite as extreme (or fast) as him, but I like to think I have a great drive and passion :) I also learned something about the Munich games, and of course much more than I knew before about Pre. Amazing runner.The only pace is suicide pace and today looks like a good day to die.

(mx) wrote: Yves Montand stars as a professor of psychiatry who, while demonstrating hypnosis to his class, accidentally hypnotizes Barbara Streisand in the audience. He discovers she is not a student, but was trying to approach him to help her quit smoking ... and she probably has psychic powers. He agrees to help, but under hypnosis, he accidentally regresses her to a past life as an English noblewoman. He continues with these sessions and ends up falling in love with her past persona. Meanwhile, she falls in love with him. This is a weird film. It's a musical, but there's so little music in the film, that it may as well not be. What music there is just serves to stall the plot. Adding to the oddness, Jack Nicholson and Bob Newhart appear in small supporting roles.

Everything else is magnificent putting Somebody Up There Likes Me w/ some of the greatest b/w boxing movies like Raging Bull & The Harder They Fall. Originally intended for James Dean before his untimely death this is perfect fit for Paul Newman who does this bio-pic justice. It also has the added bonus of Sal Mineo in the cast & a brief cameo by Steve McQueen as a hooligan in a roof top rumble. His very presence made me smile & I wish he was in it more then the few seconds that he was

In point of fact, they're not too clear about much of anything. The script is either made up on the spot or simply horrible. The characterizations retreads you've seen in a hundred movies. Its a badly done thing, not worth the light of day is all. I couldn't finish it.
