Unfaithful

In between reorganizing my apartment, I managed to watch Unfaithful which I had rented Friday night. “Based on the 1969 French film La Femme Infidele, this film tells the story of an unfaithful wife whose lifeless marriage is sparked with new passion — after her husband kills her lover and she helps him try to cover it up.” Diane Lane who plays the wife is nominated for best actress and gives a good performance but having seen the performances of the other woman nominated, would say she is a long shot.

The Pianist

I along with a dozen other folks were at the 7pm showing of The Pianist at Pipers Alley. The Pianist chronicles the life of Polish-Jewish pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman from 1939-45.

I don’t have much more to say about this movie. Simply that it’s yet another brilliantly acted and directed movie about the Holocaust and I’m emotionally exhausted by it all.

I just watched video clip of her singing “Coming Away With Me.” Not bad! But I love going to the movies. So between now and when the 75th Annual Academy Awards airs, I’m going to try and see most if not all the movies that got nominated in the major categories (best picture, director, actor, actress, supporting actor, supporting actress). It may seem like a tall order but I’ve seen […]

Pulp Fiction

I watched Pulp Fiction last night for the first time ever, and it sent me running for my bible. I couldn’t help but look up the passage (Ezekiel 25:17) that Samuel Jackson’s character (Jules Winnfeld) quotes just before he “pops a cap in their ass.” He says: “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother’s keeper and the […]
