I thought it tackled a very difficult subject with sensitivity and in a unique fashion. Great performances. Not perfect, but worth watching.

Watched this last night on Netflix, after seeing it in a list of 15 great movies you're not aware of. True, I wasn't familiar with it.

It's a difficult film: confusing, violent, driven. I'm not sure what I think of it, including its convoluted/twist ending.

But reading up on it, turns out Spike Lee had remade it recently (to negative reviews), so it has some place in the "influential" category. Click the pic to go to the IMDB entry.
Ebertgives it 4 stars.
A man gets violently drunk and is chained to the wall in a police station. His friend comes and bails him out. While the friend is making a telephone call, the man disappears from an empty city street in the middle of the night. The man regains consciousness in what looks like a shabby hotel room. A bed, a desk, a TV, a bathroom cubicle. There is a steel door with a slot near the floor for his food tray. Occasionally a little tune plays, the room fills with gas, and when he regains consciousness the room has been cleaned, his clothes have been changed, and he has received a haircut.

Watched Miles Ahead last night. Not a big Davis fan, but I love Cheadle. It was a good movie. Well done.

Yes, he likes the "centering" shots in his films.  You can tell how much he is influenced by Kubrick in a lot of his work; he often uses the "single-point perspective" shots too, like Kubrick liked to do.

We didn't like this at all. Wes Anderson is very hit or miss for me and this was definitely a miss.

 
I liked "Moonrise Kingdom" but mostly because I want more movies like it to come out. Wes needs to have stronger plots with more conflicts in his movies—otherwise they meander and have extraneous scenes. "Rushmore" was brilliant. "Grand Budapest Hotel" was quite fun—who knew Ralph Fiennes could be so funny? 

Ralph's also in a dark, dark comedy "In Bruges" with Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson. Ralph's a foul-mouthed and foul-tempered crime lord who packs Colin and Brendan off to Bruges, Belgium after they botch a hit. Very funny if you're in a noirish mood and are willing to handle a few awfully gory scenes.

It's a neat film - funny and quirky like a lot of Wes Anderson's other stuff, and a good story.  I'm surprised I hadn't even heard of it until a few days ago.

Yes, Norton was creepy. I haven't seen the series he was in, where he was a sympathetic priest ...

I don't remember a Miss O'Brien.

 
The actress who played O'Brien (Lady Grantham's sour lady's maid) plays the sister of the main character in Happy Valley. Very different characters played by a great actress. Back in '86 she played a fast and loose teenager in her first movie...

James Norton is really great in "Happy Valley" as the bad guy. Quite the opposite of the sympathetic priest he plays in "Grantchester", which is on Amazon Video and free to watch if you have Amazon Prime.
