^ Montgomery Clift was an amazing actor - so vulnerable, natural and charismatic. A Place In The Sun is his finest performance, imho.

Saw Spencer last night and was taken aback by how borderline-ridiculous it was. Beautiful cinematography alone does not a great movie make. Stewart's performance was flat and wooden, sorry to say (and I usually quite like her) - I'm really surprised by the Oscar buzz surrounding her portrayal.

Whenever someone mentions Montgomery Clift I think of The Right Profile, which is probably my favourite Clash song

Dial M for Murder - Alfred Hitchcock (1954)

Very clever and loads of fun (although obviously not a comedy). Based on a play and filmed mostly in one room so I think the original writers should get most of the kudos. Grace Kelly isn't much of an actress but she is pretty to look at. The beginning is a little too fast and confusing but thankfully you can rewind to catch up. Once the ball starts rolling it's very compelling. And the ending is very satisfying although just a touch unrealistic.

A Hitch flick I haven't seen. Thanks. Free on PLEX

Though I never really got Fellini.

I'll check this one out. Criterion Channel, I presume.

Always thought I was more of an Antonioni guy myself, but saw Roma in a theater a few months ago and was blown away by how sharp and funny and original it was. This one is a pretty similar film, every bit as funny and brilliant. I torrented it, right now I don't have to worry about the provider turning off my internet cause of that, I'm temporarily in a safe zone for illegal downloads so I don't have to subscribe to any streaming services.

Wow, I didn't know someone somewhere is actually getting into trouble for torrenting. Do vpns help?

Btw how do they understand you're torrenting and not streaming? The amount of data should be the same.

They don't. Especially if you watch torrents on movie sites like Sflix. That particular one is my backup when I can't find what I want on the myriad streaming sites I frequent. Streaming/ownership rights have forced most of the legit sites to stream the same content anyway, which reminds me -


one flew over the cuckoo's nest (1975, milos forman)

Legit free streamer on tubi. Haven't seen it since... the 70s.
