I loooooove the movies, and I've seen "Dirty Pretty Things".Are you by chance a member of Netflix? My husband and I are because we really enjoy foreign movies. We live out in the 'burbs, and foreign films don't often make it out here. Having said that, things seem to be changing. Our local mall's cinema is showing both Volver and Pan's Labyrinth along with the usual tripe, so I guess I shouldn't complain too much.I especially love going to the movies once the various awards nominations have been released. Over the past couple of weeks, we've seen Volver, Pan's Labyrinth, Notes on a Scandal, Letters from Iwo Jima and Curse of the Golden Flower. The only film we haven't seen that has been nominated for Best Film is The Departed. We saw the original Hong Kong version, "Infernal Affairs", so I don't know how I feel about seeing it all "Hollywooded up".I really enjoyed The Queen; I've been a fan of Helen Mirren for years. Have you seen her in the Prime Suspect series? I was living in England at the time of Diana's death, so I was particularly interested in seeing The Queen.Which was the sort of fantasy film that Audrey Tautou was in a few years ago? All I can think of is "Chocolat". "Amelie"...wasn't that it? Very different role for her in "Dirty Pretty Things".
Everything you have heard about the superb performances in Notes on a Scandal is true. This is a very different role for Dame Judi Dench, and she is just plain spooky. In this film, it is surprising to see that the true predator is a pinched, dry school marm
The Devil's Advocate
QuoteThe Devil's AdvocateExcellent movie-there is a white sculpture near the end of the movie behind Al Pacino...very awesome
Rerun, I'm curious to hear what you will have to say about "Little Miss Sunshine."
Let's see what movie did I see today? I can't even remember the name ..... that is how much I liked it.It was AWFUL! Nasty as nasty gets! They actually had a girl with a penis as a nose (although she had a veil) OMG! Then she sneezed and you can imagine! Well, no you probably can't! Duce Bigalow - In Europe () that is 0 stars.

Since I watch 3 movies a week, I thought I would start my own "Movie Review". It will have the basic 5 star (*****) rating with 1 * being bad and ***** being excellent..Dirty Pretty Things: (***) Starring Audrey Tautou. This is about an immigrant young woman in London working as a house keeper. She is hiding out another immigrant African doctor. They stumble upon a black market organ selling ring. They get caught up in the twist of morals and need for escape to America.Feedback is encouraged.........
Rerun, have you seen the movie Fargo? Just wanted to know what you thought of it if you have.
