Comic at its best - and beautiful at that!
Not since Murphy Brown with the absolutely fabulous Candice Bergen have I enjoyed a sitcom so much - even if in Germany it is dubbed in......(you guessed it)...German.
The two main caracters show immense wit and insight into life´s little problems - and it seems that they enjoyed themselves thoroughly during the shooting of the series.
Cybill is no doubt one of the world´s most beautiful women!
Murphy Brown (1988)
In my opinion the best sitcom ever! Candice Bergen, surrounded by a brilliant cast, shows wit and intelligence - and not to mention she is (still in my opinion) probably the world´s most beautiful woman.
As, alas, it is dubbed in German in Germany I would give a lot to be able to watch it in original language.
The Serpent's Kiss (1997)
Nice period piece - weak plot
The story being a wee bit weak is more than carried by the class actors. Greta Scacchi is just magnificent and you can literally FEEL the tension when she lusts for McGregor in the greenhouse-scene. Not at all as bad as some would make it out to be. Nice period piece shot in beautiful surroundings.
House of Games (1987)
Excellent - and it keeps getting better! I MUST watch it again....and again.....
Just watched the film for the 3rd time and enjoyed Lindsay Crouse and the rest of the cast just as much as before. It just keeps getting better and better. You simply have to marvel at the carefully measured way of speech, the slow deliberate action, everything being exactly in place.
Truly one of the great ones and definitely my all-time favourite!!!
Son of the Morning Star (1991)
somewhat long, but worth every minute!
If somewhat long, this epic "western" tells the story of Custer´s last defeat and tries to show what kind of man he was. Cole gives a stunning performance and the film is made interesting when seen thru "2 pairs of eyes", the wife of Custer seeing it from a white point of view and the Indian girl telling the truth about a black chapter of America´s history
Definitely worth watching!
To Catch a Killer (1992)
Truly frightening, not for timid souls!
The film depicts the hunt for and final capture of John Wayne Gacy and Dennehy, in my opinion one of Americas great actors, is truly, truly FRIGHTENING in the main part. Your blood almost freezes and you grab someone´s arm, when he succeeds in luring yet another bait. Also Kidder does a memorable performance as the clairvoyant and never goes over the top.
Definitely worth watching - but don´t watch it alone......
Les diaboliques (1955)
Best thriller - EVER!
This film has you glued to your comfy chair! You bite your nails and hope this terror is soon to end! But it goes on and on and you are glad it does because it is sooo brilliant!
Don´t miss it!
What a truly magnificent film! Cate Blanchett is absolutely mesmerising as the Virgin Queen who to the (alas - a slip I am sure) opening af Mozart´s Requiem, written a few hundred years AFTER Elizabeth lived - I am pretty sure it WAS Mozart´s Requiem - marries England.......
However, the still very beautiful and sensual Fanny Ardant almost steals the show as Marie de Guise.
Stunning - a schocking masterpiece, burns itself into your mind!
Lars von Trier´s adaptation of the ancient Greek play (HIS tribute to Carl Th. Dreyer, who originally wrote the manuscript but never got around to filming it) is absolutely stunning.
The actors´ performances (above all Kirsten Olesen, incidentally one of Denmark´s top actresses makes you gasp), the wide landscapes and carefully selected sparse dialogue, but especially Lars von Trier´s direction makes this film a shocking look into the disturbed mind of a woman who has been scorned and left. Medea´s revenge is horrible but never unbelievable. She does what every sane person would do, when deprived of all that she loves. The film burns itself into your mind and leaves you with a lasting impression of what human misery can be like.
A veritable piece of art, belonging up there with most of von Trier´s works - and above all up there with ALL of Dreyer´s works!
Just Like a Woman (1992)
Delightful look into the problems of a cross-dresser
Somewhat too long and going over the top towards the end, this comedy is an utterly delightful, never condescending or ridiculing look into the problems of a "power man", who likes to wear women´s clothes at nite.
Julie Walters is lovely as always, but Adrian Pasdar is utterly credible and steals the film. He (she)is absolutely gorgeous in high heels and silk stockings.
