MM,

If you are interested in going beyond the director's chair, I would recommend you read Michael Ondaatje's book The Conversations: Walter Murch and the Art of Editing Film and David Mamet's Bambi vs. Godzilla: On the Nature, Purpose, and Practice of the Movie Business

Both give terrific insights.

Thanks, Wil, I'll look into those. Mamet is certainly a favorite. And Murch, well...THE CONVERSATION speaks for itself, no pun intended.

"He'd kill us..."

"He'd kill us..."

The most subtle of differences, but all the difference in the world.

Also, Thelma Schoonmaker rates highly in this moviegoer's estimation.

Cheers! MM

Wil & MM,

Have you seen both CAPOTE and INFAMOUS?

Slade,

I thought Capote was terrific, and I haven't seen Infamous yet. #24 on my Netflix queue.

Wil,

Hard to know which is the better film. All the same characters. Daniel Craig is great as Perry Smith, and Toby Jones gives Hoffman a run for his money.

If you haven't seen THE PAINTED VEIL - Jones is good in that, too, and what a last line! - add it to the list.

Okay folk,

Back to westerns for a minute. I just saw 3:10 to Yuma. I thought it was great fun. I give it a solid seven out of ten.

But...

I think there was one big storytelling mistake in the last 20 minutes.

Who can pick it out?

I thought there were more than one mistake in this otherwise good remake.

For one the the character arc of Ben Wade is incomplete. You're given his potential for redemption but it's never completed.

Dan Evans stretches credibility as a character by being determined to continue, what amounts to, a suicide mission even when offered enough money to save the ranch and tell his debtors what they can do with themselves. There is a point where the line is crossed from moral and upright to priggish and shortsighted.

Finally; there are far too many themes that have already been dealt with in other western (and better) so the film is saddled with a 'been-there-done-that' feel that was distracting to me. This was embodied by Peter Fonda's impersonation of Clint Eastwood.

Despite all of that I did enjoy the film. And it has made me reevaluate some things about westerns (specifically westerns of the fifties). It also proved Mafus right from the 3:10 to Yuma thread: The remaking of an average western can make a really good one.

Sorry to hear of Richard Widmark's death, . . . each year someone else I grew up watching leaves . . . the older I get - the more I believe it requires GUTS to survive . . . when you look around and sometimes realize that you're the only one left standing . . .
