That movie surprised the hell out of me when I watched it.
It's completely ridiculous and almost everything about it is implausible and yet I didn't care. I was so into the madness of Russell Crowe's character and all the convenient twists and turns. Pure entertainment.
Oh ok ... that was going to be my other choice. Those are the two movies where he has such a full beard. What's your favorite Pacino performance?
I really admire the dynamic shift in demeanor of Michael Corleone in GF pt 1. Its haunting in a tragically poetic sense. However, I also love the charismatic yet rugged confidence of Lt. Colonel Frank Slate in Scent of a Woman. Such a magnetic performance full of inner scars and sensibility. Those two are probably my fav
It's basically as good as a romantic comedy can get. Really good script and good acting all around, especially considering the amount of young actors that were involved. I wish Weisz had a little bit more screen time tho because I like her so much as an actress.
I just re-watched that the other day too. I've got the 10th anniversary edition and never watched the bonus features. I'm going through them slowly (because I've been busy). Disc one is finished with 2 to go.
I love the movie but I feel like it only gets praise from a lot of people for the Death Star contractors and the snowballing concept. There's a lot more to the movie. The lack of edits and long bursts of quick paced dialogue is insane, especially for first time actors (Jeff Anderson) and film makers. Plus, Randal might be my favorite fictional character of all time.
Saw this movie last night on Netflix. Love this film. Basically about a guy (Steve Buscemi) who just lost his job & hangs around in the bar all day. Pretty much a dark comedy. I noticed that this film has alot of actors who ended up being characters in The Sopranos, they even have D'angelo Barksdale from The Wire.
