Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

Can't wait to read what you think of Tommy or Lisztomania or The Devils ! Oh, I just LOVE Peter Maxwell Davies' music in The Devils ! I remember, pre-Discogs days, going on the hunt for that recording, coming up with nothing. Still true, I fear. That really is a soundtrack begging to be issued, alo...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

Splendid write-up - funny, I remember enjoying The Tenant last time we saw it (which was a loooong time ago). I should try again. Meanwhile, it's a shame that Walt doesn't post here anymore, as I recall he's a big fan of this. We've been around these bushes before, though - unlike you, I like Cul d...

Re: Recently Watched Films 2020

Watched through the entire Ghibli catalogue, and a wonderful experience it is. Aha, that's why we haven't heard from you for a while! Among reasons. As I wrote, I have been working all through summer, dumb that I am, so feel a bit exhausted. I still watch a fair amount of movies and enjoy it, but t...
