Crop And Save
A veritable feast of acting & writing
I was profoundly moved by this episode, & am more moved every time I watch it. So many human emotions are explored, and in so many different ways. I did not expect to feel everything I felt; and each time I see this episode, I learn a little more. I don't for one moment understand everything in it but I do know about disappointment, disillusion, and pity. The casting is perfect and, as usual, the Criminal Intent regulars do their jobs with the same consistency as ever. All the guest cast are also very believable in their roles. This ranks way up there for me such as: "Penelope," "L.D.S.K.," "Normal," "Riding the Lightning," both parts of "The Fisher King;" & too many more to list. Thank you, Criminal Minds.
The Color Purple (1985)
An essential film
If I were to recommend films for educational purposes, as well as sheer magnificence, I would put this film near the very top of the list, along with a few others. Examples would be "The Best Years of Our Lives," "Schindler's List," "Mister Smith Goes to Washington," "The Lou Gehrig Story," and so many more! "The Color Purple" shows how much misery a courageous person can take and keep on living; and how that person can crawl out of the misery to absolute triumph! I don't cry often in public but at the end of "The Color Purple," I put my head down on the seat ahead of me and wept aloud from the heart. Nor was I alone, both men and women crying along with me. How this film failed to win any Oscars, I fail to see, believe me. SEE IT, PLEASE!!
The Scarlet Pimpernel (1982)
A great and beautiful film!
I have watched this film countless times since its debut! I agree that it is superior to the Howard one in every way. Anthony Andrews could not have been better! I like him as Percy best (he's so GORGEOUS) but he was equally good as all the other "characters" he played. And Jane Seymour, one of the beauties of the age playing one of the beauties--albeit fictional--of the 18th century! Wonderful! Sir Ian makes a great villain, especially because you can see his pain under the villainy. Julian Fellowes as the Prince Regent is perfect as well (I wish there'd been more of him). The physical beauty of this film is exquisite, especially the ball scenes filmed in Ragley Hall. The rest of the cast is also superb; I wish I had room to congratulate all of them. If you haven't seen this film, DO SO!!
