everyone should! they're watching some great flicks

memories of murder, out of the blue, on dangerous ground, brewster mccloud, california split, au hasard balthazar are all personal faves

check out diary of a country priest, a man escaped, pickpocket, & mouchette

That's cool. :) Do you prefer Newman's portrayal of Roy Bean or Walter Brennan's (if you've seen The Westerner) ? Because I honestly can't decide which I like better.

I was thinking of watching Diary of A Country Priest next. Balthazar was quite an emotional toll for me, so I might wait a while.

A Man Escaped is my favorite Bresson.

Only "liking" Out of the Blue saddens me.

"La notte", Antonioni, 1961

also: 2001 70mm 4K restored version, I liked it!

If it's any consolation i'll give Out Of The Blue an 8 out of 10. I just wasn't sure what to say in terms of what stood out for me, because everything about it was so damn good.

Some of you are so good at picking/taking screenshots it makes me want to drop out of life and watch movies all day

Haven’t seen the Westerner but I’d wager that it’d be tough for Brennan to match Newman’s huge charisma and sense of comedic timing. Seen a handful of stuff with Brennan and he never really grabbed me— didn’t like him at all in To Have and Have Not. Newman is a titan.

Awesome set of movies you’ve been working through the past couple months.

piping in to ride hard for Brennan, one of my fav character actors (Rio Bravo bros). his Bean is different from Newman's cuz he's playing grizzled oaf to Gary Cooper's charismatic gunslinger and it's kindof a clown/straight-man thing but with pathos mixed in. not hating on Newman, i think his Bean is fascinating and also his similarly unhinged performance in Buffalo Bill and the Indians.

A local film festival is having a Bergman retrospective. As usual, they programmed some interesting stuff for 10 in the morning on a workday, but I'm certainly going to check out Persona.Looking very much forward to the scene where the screen just tears apart / burns away.Toggle Spoiler
