Watched City of God for the first time the other day. Was meh to me. I'm with Jackass, I would bet I could name 15-20 foreign films that I prefer.
Watched "In the Heat of the Night" recently. Plot is pretty flimsy and formulaic, but both lead performances were good enough to compensate.
"Manhunter." Wow, I was expecting a lot more from Michael Mann and the reviews. This was a struggle to get through. I can live with slow pacing but this was just plain boring.
