Just watched Melville's Le Samouraļ, which was as cool and slick as its billing. I'll have to do a double feature with Point Blank sometime. Alain Delon's lone wolf was cold as ice, ice baby, to the extreme.
Also caught Miyazaki's Castle in the Sky for the first time. While the kiddie protagonists did get on my nerves on occasion, the world full of airships, sky pirates and a magic, floating city had me sold. For whatever reason, I've never gotten around to watching Miyazki's other movies, but I'll be adding a slew of them to my Netflix queue.
Now if you'll excuse me, it's time for some football!Posted by Drew at January 14, 2006 12:20 PM
