Rear Window

rearWhat a treat to see this with someone who had never seen it before (my friend Michelle)- it makes the whole movie fresh for me. Plus, the whole audience was totally into it. Michelle loved Grace Kelly and her great outfits. (Brattle Theater, back row of the balcony)

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

tgtbatuI'm glad I finally saw this movie. However, the restored edition, with 20 extra minutes, was at least 20 minutes too long. Plus, the Ennio Morricone soundtrack was super-corny and distracting. Its tough when your score becomes iconic-- everyone was giggling at the famous theme music. (Brattle Theater)
