yeah, colour is obviously great and all….but a shitload of movies over the years would have been superior had they been done in black & white with crisp clean high contrast lighting.

It sucks how much it’s been wiped out, aside from the odd flick here or there…that often end up being great, Ed Wood, The Lighthouse, Nebraska, White Ribbon, Good Night & Good Luck, etc etc

Is anyone watching Heels?

I might be bias, but i truly think you can appreciate this show if you dont love wrestling. If you hate wrestling, probably not, but if you like it or are indifferent i strongly reccommend. Season 2 was very strong.

Schindler was probably the best modern day black and white film for my money, especially how Spielberg used a touch of color for effect in it. A masterstroke.

Never heard of it. I see there is a movie with the same title about wrestling too but I don't think they are related. Gonna check them both out.

I don't watch wrestling now but watched a lot years ago, always enjoyed the heels and their treachery.

Watched this Billy Wilder gem today….hell of a fun flick. Really smart engaging script, with some great performances from the three leads.

I watched it on Prime, but I have a few of those movie subscriptions on there, so it may have been under the umbrella of one of those….either way, for those that haven’t seen it, it’s a classic worth your time.

I think I fell in love with Marlene Dietrich? she’s bloody brilliant in this…….also she 100% had to be the inspiration for Tarantino’s Bridgette Von Hammersmark in Basterds’….

I don't know of this one. Think I'll check it out tonight.

If you enjoy Laughton's acting you should check out (if you can find it) a movie called "The Big Clock" with him and Ray Milland (and a very young Harry Morgan about 30 years before he was Colonel Potter on M*A*S*H) In the 80's they did a sort-of remake with Gene Hackman in the Laughton role and Kevin Costner in the Milland role called "No Way Out" which was also very good.

"Talk To Me" isn't quite as good as the hype (If you area aware of the great reviews", but it does have a couple of really frightening, disturbing scenes that overall make it work.
