Excellent, Gordon. Thank you for putting this up. I love your point about the Lawrence performance, "...a character who seems to be trying on different affects..." is such a lovely way to put it. He seems genuinely interested in figuring out who he is going to become, even more than he is interested in actually becoming it. Again...thanks. -Christien

Thank you for this entry, Gordon. Beautifully put. Don't you dare apologize for waxing poetic. Do so as much as you want to (I daresay you've got a book in you on this subject). Your heart in exactly the right place.

Well done yet again, Gordon. I love this blog. I'm particularly enamored of your True Grit write-up above. You nailed it. "...happy confluence of between subject matter and adapter" captures it exactly. I didn't read a couple of entries as I haven't seen them yet (most notably Tiny Furniture), so I'll come back to comment on those later. -xtien P.S. HA-HA, you have a Tony Scott film on your top ten list! You will never escape this fact. NEVER! Mwahahahahahaha!

That last paragraph is excellent. There you capture so much of how I felt about the film. Nicely done. I also love this sentence in the preceding one: "They are trying their darnedest to be sexy, but his smile is completely devoid of libido, more like the indulgent grin a man might show when a little girl is showing off her tap-dancing." -xtien
