Watching those films, I would even venture that some of it was ad-libbed on the spot, going with their gut when things worked.    

 
I kinda got the impression they were making most of it up as they went along. They probably had a broad outline about what their lives had been since they last met and just rolled with it. Loved the long steadycam shot in the park - that's film making.

I loved that whole trilogy! It was amazing that they were able to keep it going over 20 years with the same actors and the continuing storyline.
 
 
I remember seeing the first one about 3-4 times when it came out, I was so fascinated with the theme and the style...long, long shots of conversation without cutting away...the natural chemistry between Hawke and Delpy....

This is the first installment of a trilogy by director Richard Linklater and actors Ethan Hawke & Julie Delpy. Almost entirely dialogue, beautifully shot and a great story.

I watched Billy Wilder's "The Apartment" over the weekend.  Great film: one of my favorites.  I think it only recently became available on Netflix - or it wasn't there when I checked a few months ago..

Watched a 1968 movie called "Petulia"set in San Francisco mainly because it had Joseph Cotton in it. Also had George C Scott, Julie Christie, Shirley Knight and Richard Chamberlain. The movie wasn't very good but the cool thing was it had The Grateful Dead and Big Brother & the Holding Company with Janus Joplin.

Last night I watched "Thieves Like Us" from 1974 with Keith Carradine and Shelly Duvall. Until I watched this movie I thought "D.O.A." from 1950 was the worlds longest Coca Cola commercial but Thieves Like Us at 123 mins has it beat. And while most of the Coke references in D.O.A. were subtle the Coke references in Thieves Like Us were extremely gratuitous to the point of ruining the movie. Every scene and I mean every scene had multiple references. If they were in a room there would be a Coke commercial on the radio playing AND the actors would be drinking Coke and calling it by name and their would be a Coke ad showing on an open magazine. In many scenes there were asking for someone to bring them one. There would be Coke signs on buildings in all outdoor scenes and several Coke trucks roaming around. The most ridiculous time was they are getting ready to rob a bank and of course they are drinking Coke while getting ready. Then while robbing the bank there is a vehicle right in front with a giant Coke bottle mounted in it and a lady giving out Cokes from it to school kids gathered there. None of this is an exaggeration and I only touched on maybe 1% of the references. Made it very hard to take the movie seriously and I think it was meant to be a serious movie {#Stupid}

I just happened to be in the library a few days ago and came across this:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1226240/?ref_=nv_sr_1

'A Late Quartet' stars the now departed Philip Seymour Hoffman in a string quartet with his wife, Catherine Keener, Christopher Walken and a fourth guy I had never heard of.  I had never heard of this movie at all.  I don't even recall it being at the local independent movie house.  At first I was really concerned when one of the previews was 'Atlas Shrugged Part II'.  So I thought there may have been a connection to a production or distribution company with a reputation for straight to DVD stinkers.  But I was pleasantly surprised.  PSH had great dramatic range in this movie.  I was so drawn in by all parts of his acting, that I probably didn't care that he wasn't playing the violin.  I don't know whether any of the actors were really playing their instruments or not, but it looked very convincing.  I'm sure a real violinist or cello player might be able to spot some goofs if they weren't really playing.  Anyway, PSH displays amazing dramatic talent in this one.

My only complaint (a very small one) was that the script was almost too dramatic.  I was half hoping Walken would stop a rehearsal and insist on more cowbell ("No, not really!").  For a quartet that has worked together for 25 years, there doesn't seem to be a lot of joking amongst its members.  The rest of the movie is straight serious lines, no sarcasm or bluntness that I've come to expect from your typical New Yorkers.  The only exceptions to that is when PSH is making small talk with the hotty flamenco performer while jogging and when PSH and Keener's daughter says "Whatever!".

The Masterpiece Mysteries prequel for the "Inspector Morse" series. If you liked that series this is well worth watching.

Has anyone else noticed that whatever genre of movie you select from the "Watch Instantly" menu it always gives you the same movies, only in different order? How clever of them. makes it look like they have more streaming movies than they actually have.
