The Movie Show (1986)
Movie history changes forever
"The Movie Show" is a cultural icon for Australians. For 18 years, Margaret and David have rated every movie under the sun, often puzzling viewers with their ratings, and most always puzzling each other.
Phrases like "I give it 3 stars, how about you?" and "David, I don't know what movie YOU were watching..." have been the real reason people watch, for the interplay between Margaret and David.
Sadly, after eighteen years on air, the duo decided to leave SBS (because SBS's programming quality had slipped, and the duo were no longer treated as they had been previously) and are now on the ABC presenting "At the Movies". The new format of "The Movie Show" will never match up to what it once was: a true icon.
The House of Mirth (2000)
Stunning in every way
Wow. Terence Davies' "House of Mirth" is a film that is just brilliant.
Essentially, the plot focuses on Lily Bart (Gillian Anderson) a socialite in the early 1900s in New York who, through a series of tragic circumstances, goes from being popular and admired to being a social outcast. Anderson is perfect in the role, and we feel all of her emotions. The superb cast includes Dan Aykroyd and Eric Stolz as two of her suitors, and Anthony LaPaglia, great as always, as a man who tries to help Lily out despite her pride winning over.
Davies' direction is incredible, one scene is simply of an empty house as it rains and it is just mind-blowing. The script, also, feels real all of the time which is a credit to the actors also.
I definitely recommend this movie, but don't expect it to zoom straight by and then be forgotten!
