Today....

Today is your day on my blog. I just got back from the two hour trip down to my doc's to see if this lingering infection has finally left my body. Will know in 3 to 5 days. Tired now. Am off to loll and think of scandalous poems to write.

In the meantime, post the best movie you've seen recently and what about it you liked. I'm looking for a few more good movies to put on my Netflix queue.

That has got to be Garden State. Kind of old as movies go right now, but definately an all time favorite. Another great one is Gross Pointe Blank. John Cusak, Jeremy Pivens and Minnie Driver are wonderful in that one, and being from MI, we all know someone who knows someone from Gross Pointe... and they really are like that! Hope the tests come back on a positive note... keep us posted.

Thanks, Erin--both for the wishes and the names. Headed for my Netflix file right now!

Two most affecting films I've seen in last year (though both older) are The Color of Paradise (Iran) & Kikujiro (Japan). All Takeshi Kitano's Japanese films are wonderful & most Iranian films are a revelation: they have a culture that puts ours to shame & they're lovely gracious generous people to boot (think an un-Americanized Andre Agassi).
My favorite film though is still Seven Samurai.

Thanks, Steven
I haven't seen any of these. I'll see if Netflix has any. They do have a large cache of foreign films, so there's a chance.

Best film I've seen lately that I hadn't seen previously was "The Company" with Neve Campbell and Malcolm McDowell.

It's about dancers in a dance company, featuring the Geoffrey (sp?) Ballet company in Chicago. Neve Campbell plays an up-and-coming dancer new to the company, Malcolm McDowell plays the director of the company. Many of the other people (especially most of the dancers) play themselves. I has some of the most stunning dance sequences I've ever seen in a movie. (And I'm not a huge fan or afficionado of dance in general.)

Not really a whole lot of story as such, but the dance scenes (and the scenes of rehearsal and working it out) are so great that who cares.

Hi Lyle
I don't know if you'll see my reply, but the movie is also now on my list. I love ballet, too, so any movie with sequences of that is well worth it. Thanks!
