kallisti and I went to see Mullholland Drive at the Red Vic theater on Haight St., SF. It was the second viewing for both of us. She loved it. My response was a big "so what". Been there done that. It was like watching David Lynch's greatest hits. Lynch is running out of ideas. It may be time for him to make a film based on someone else's script, as he did with The Elephant Man.

I just saw "memento". I have been amazed when talking with people at how many different interpretations there are to the ending. Ask 4 different people what the ending was, and you will get 4 different answers.

Naomi Watts was amazing. She should've been at least nominated for an Academy Award.

speaking of Billy Bob, I watched "The Man Who Wasn't There" last night. Its a nifty homage to classic film noir. Poetically shot in black and white. Thorton's performance is similar to the one he gave in "Monster's Ball". He's a master at brooding inarticulateness.

"Y Tu Mama Tambien" is the second great Mexican film to be released in the past year. The other one is "Amores Perros". "Tu Mama" is a genuienely erotic coming of age movie. 2 young men and an older woman drive across Mexico on their way to a mythic beach paradise. The trip becomes a psychosexual adventure. Unlike so many American teen sex comedies, "Tu Mama" is not a snickering, lewd teenybopper fantasy. It is a wise movie about sexual identity, among many other things.

A syphilitic, pedophilic Peter O'Toole may not be better than no Peter O'Toole.

That film should be renamed "Studio 54 B.C."

Hey, it's hardcore porn with John Gielgud and Peter O'Toole. What's not to like?

Maybe you never had to visit a friend in prison, whos there for 20 years? Try to prepare yourself for the visits. Then you walk into the prison and its like having your legs kicked out from underneath you. Like an animal shelter for humans.
And you dont even want to be there as a visitor. Walk out the door, then think your friend wont do that for 20 years. What do you think its like to prepare yourself to go to work there? Your life and your job.
When Billy Bob fought with his son over the fuck up on the death walk, who did you feel for, the weak kid, Billy Bob or Sean Combs?
When Combs had his breakdown, how about the comforting reaction from Billy Bob? Would you have just ignored him? Is there a difference?
I was surprised when the two of them Leticia and Billy Bob broke down at the same time. Big falls from opposite places.
There was alot to that movie. Look beyond Halle Berry, Billy Bob Thornton and Sean Combs.

I feel the story line had something to be desired...it didn't catch me at all.

"DON'T go see Monster's Ball. Dumb movie."
What did you think was dumb about it?
I thought it believable, the acting good and the soundtrack was great.
Have you ever spent time in the Georgia?

Which movie? I listed 3.

Marc loves that movie. I read it more as a socio/economic slamfest (and right on target).

Just saw an awful Spanish soft porn-esque film called HUEVOS DE ORO. The best thing about it is its name.

AMORES PERROS gets my vote as Mexico's best 21st century film.

There's a good movie in Spanish called "Y tu mama tambien." Looks good. There's some soft porn in it.

DON'T go see Monster's Ball. Dumb movie.

I liked Panic Room.

Oh, then I definately have to say my first recommendation for this week's rental list would be "Caligula" ... the screenplay was written by Gore Vidal who also did "Ben Hur: A Tale of the Christ"
