I remember seeing the preview in the theaters and cringing so loudly my freinds asked what was the matter...So I told them...Sherifs, Countys and far to many white people in a outer village...Then I calmed down, thought of that Steven Segal movie where he and his "native" love intrest rode horses from somewhere around Homer to Prudhoe bay in a single day and I felt much better...
Last movie in a theater: CLOVERFIELD (a theater worthy movie), next movie in a theater: THE ROAD.
If you like McCarthy's stuff you might like "The Proposition" which also has Guy Pearce in it. "The Proposition" was not written by McCarthy, but it is a movie in the same vein as his books, but instead of being set in the western US, it is set in Australia. It is a very good movie.
Another good one is "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford ". I highly recommend it.
Revolutionary Road -- strong performance by Di Caprio (I'm not a fan, but he was surprisingly good in this; Kate Winslett seemed to struggle with her role). Slum Dog Millionaire -- an elaborate production, good script and directing. Will probably win best picture at the Oscars and several technical awards. A good bit of violence in the film.
They always mean beautiful things like hummingbirds. I always reply by saying that I think of a little child in east Africa with a worm burrowing through his eyeball. The worm cannot live in any other way, except by burrowing through eyeballs. I find that hard to reconcile with the notion of a divine and benevolent creator.
