État de siège (1972)
Now streaming on FilmStruck
I am a 'Z' and 'The Confession' fan, have been since a teenager. I am about to watch this for the first time. Skimming these reviews, I saw so many people bemoaning the lack of a DVD release, I thought to make note that this film is now (June 2017) streaming on Filmstruck (a service that includes Criterion films). Having read some reviews, I am expecting something truly extraordinary. I am rating it 8 of 10 based on my previous encounters with Costas-Gravas.
Cold Case Files: A Family Cursed (2017)
the missing cold case episode
Awful only because the reboot of this excellent show has gone missing. Nine pm Monday nights is airing The First 48, one after the other, and only 4 episodes of this season's shows can be seen, on TV, on demand, on the app. This episode was scheduled to air March 20, 2017, but, like a criminal, has disappeared.
Wodehouse in Exile (2013)
Simple and sad
Hugely disagree with the one other reviewer on this site. That Wodehouse was too innocent to understand how the Nazis were using him also explains why he didn't blink an eye at Macintosh's anti-Semitic doings. Wodehouse was sequestered from the war by the Nazis. How was he to know what was happening? Absurd critique. And the movie is paced well, not too fast, certainly not too slow. Pigott-Smith is wonderful as Wodehouse, Zoe Wanamaker brilliant as his beloved, not-so-easily fooled wife. Julian Rhind-Tutt plays Malcolm Muggeridge, PUNCH editor, satirist, and Guardian writer. Flora Montgomery, once Ireland's EFP's Shooting Star, is lovely as Leonora, Wodehouse's (step)-daughter.
Calling the Shots (1993)
Calling the Shots DVD?
Lynn Redgrave's brilliant performance as a haunted newscaster in 'Calling the Shots' gave me nightmares. It's been 24 years and I still get the chills remembering the show. Memory, however helpful, is not good enough. All the words one wants to avoid using these days, simply because they're used too many times, must be applied here. 'Calling the Shots' was poignant, and full of gravitas. Remembering 'Calling the Shots,' I think about how women survive in the television news industry, how they survive childhood traumas, how they transcend survival, but am I remembering correctly? Who knows? I haven't seen this show for 24 years! How long must the world wait for this fantastic dramatic television miniseries to be released on DVD?
What's My Line? (1950)
The gentleman I just spoke to says it will return Monday mornings 3 AM on October something -- oh, d---n -- well, just figure out what day of the week Monday is, it was maybe the 12th? I'm sorry. Can't remember. A middle-aged moment.
My comment does not contain enough lines. So, why I love this show: it's a history lesson. I'm 48 and was an infant in the 1950's. On What's My Line we meet all kinds of people, every day jobbers, celebs, government officials (federal, state, etc.). Political people, though they may not even have known it. The Korean war, pre-MASH.
Dorothy always fascinates me. My Dad says she was considered a very conservative newspaper woman in the 50's, and that's kind of scary, in hindsight. I can't tell from the show. Mr. Cerf -- President of Random House, wow.
Anyway, hope they'll let me post this now. Don't forget. Mondays at 3 am beginning October something 2006.
