I could not persuade my wife to watch this with me. She was
sure that she couldn’t handle the ugliness and she may have been
right. Edward Norton was great as always, showing growth in a
character that many people might have written off as hopeless.
So what was different about him as opposed to Stacy Keach,
Ethan Suplee, Fairuza Balk, etc? Dr. Sweeney (Avery Brooks)
seemed to focus on intelligence, but I am not sure that what we
commonly call intelligence accounts well for that.
Can’t wait for the sequel, American History XI!
a friend gave me “V for Vendetta” on DVD, so I took it off my
Netflix queue and replaced it with “The Battle of Algiers”.
I have actually seen Downfall already, so I took it off Netflix,
moved “The Green Mile” up a little, and added “Amores Perros.”
I looked at what I haven’t seen, starting from the top, and
added four movies to my Netflix queue and moved three others
closer to the top. Those seven movies are all within the top
50 now on my queue. I added: Downfall, Requiem for a Dream,
V for Vendetta, and Oldboy. I promoted: American History X,
Donnie Darko, and Princess Mononoke. Once I’ve seen those
seven, I will have seen as far down as #128. I will get there!
