starting Film 365…
The goal is a movie every day for a year. Mostly ones I haven’t seen before, or ones I saw so long ago that I can’t remember them adequately.
(& I probably won’t make it an entire year, with wanting to move and whatnot, but it’s a good goal!)
Day 1 - October 15 - Natural Born Killers - 8 - Love me some Juliette Lewis. Awesome movie.
Day 2 - October 16 - The Basketball Diaries - 9 - Leonardo DiCaprio is amazing. Good job for Mark Wahlberg. Should be shown in D.A.R.E.
Day 3 - October 17 - An American Crime - 9 - Unbelievable story based on real life events. Catherine Keener & Ellen Page are great.
Day 4 - October 18 - Antichrist - 8 - So fucked up. Willem Dafoe & Charlotte Gainsbourg (The Science of Sleep) are fantastic with these characters.
Day 5 - October 19 - Doubt - 8 - Philip Seymour Hoffman, Meryl Streep, & Amy Adams are all good. Viola Davis didn’t deserve an Oscar nomination for being in only 2 scenes, though. Same writer and director as the original play, which makes for a quiet, subtle film.
