Really? I was hugely disappointed by the intrusion of cliche and sentiment into Haneke's usually sterile world. Dream sequences...really??

The horror unfolding in surrealistic space (always familiar yet strange) painfully recognizable to anyone unfortunate enough to withstand the slow dying of a loved one. Beneath dry stolid exterior, nightmare sequence was the only betrayal into George's state of mind. Psychic projection of sheer terror, or wish-fulfillment even. As a prophetic device, foretells the exact same method he will use to end her life.

Manipulative (classic Haneken) plot machine, yes. Cliché, no because the execution remains clinically true to subject matter hand, explicates another level of meaning without ridiculous alterations to the plausibility of events. Aesthetically superior imo, on par with Rosemary's Baby and Lynchian nightmares (except in lower density). Depends on what you glean from it, no right or wrong in qualitative judgement on this.

Several nights ago I saw Shakespeare's Henry V performed live.

Argo and it was really amazing. It was the only Oscar nominee I was able to see!

Just saw it. It was all sorts of wonderful. I was surprised by how effective the suspense was; much better in its execution than any of the officiated "suspense" and "thriller" films in my opinion.

My wife and I saw Safe Haven tonight. It's not the kind of movie I would see by myself, but I had fun going with her.

This weekend saw Jagten (The Hunt) and Quartet. Both were good, although quite different.

It was fantastic. Not going to spoil it for you with details, but very good, if heavy.

I trust that Mads Mikkelsen did a really good job as lead. Sadly, it won't be coming to the theaters where I'm at, shall have to wait for DVD.

Just finished watching the sequence to "The Girl with a dragon tattoo" entitled "The Girl who played with fire". It provides a more indepth view of the first movie. Highly recommend it.

Skyfall. Pretty limited in scope for a bond flick. Daniel craig was more daniel craig than james bond - he was very lazy, seemed like he couldn't care less. Do we really need to have bonds "human side" and "unresolved childhood trauma" described to us. Decent but overrated.

I just rented and watched the Man with the Iron Fists. Pretty good in the old Black Belt Theater kind of way.

Tinker Tailor Solder Spy. Well worth watching. It's an exercise in subtlety and the squalor of being a spy. Even though the cast was all-star, Tom Hardy wasted everyone with his performance.

Hellraiser 9, the newest one, whatever it's called. It sucked balls.

Les Miserables

The production was quite good, and portions that did not make sense on stage made a lot more sense on film.

The wife was sick so I was stuck in. We caught Men in Black III. It was remarkably enjoyable... great story for an aged movie franchised that's warmed-over for a third time.

The Road to El Dorado. It wasn't as epic a film as I had thought when I was younger.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.

Just needed a mindless, plot-driven movie after an exhausting work week.

Book was better. (As usual.) But yeah, I agree about Hardy.
