No mention of The Host or Memories of Murder? I think he's much better in the former, in particular, than in TGTBTW.

Performance wise from the 4 there, those are the 2 I'd go for on current rewatches although it'd chop and change - he's excellent in all 4.

Song of The Thin Man (Edward Buzzell)
 
The final Nick and Nora film may well be the weakest of the six, but still maintains a pretty high standard of quality in a series that cranked one out every two years. The murder plot is probably the least involving there's been, Nick Jr is annoying (even if he is played by Dean Stockwell!) and the jazz background to the plot jarrs with the presence of Mr and Mrs Charles (although I suspect that's intentional). Still, Powell and Loy are wonderful as always (just check out the scene in the hallway where Nick chats to his neighbours about a gunshot and a later scene where Nora talks about being under a table for proof of their wonderful comic timing) and at under 90 minutes it rattles by in a generally entertaining manner. A terrific series of films and a terrific duo at the heart of them. (8/10)

Exorcist: The Beginning (Renny Harlin)
 
It seems strange that Harlin took the inspiration for his prequel not from Friedkin's superb original, with doomy atmosphere and subtly-worked chills; but from the risible sequel, a truly staggeringly awful work which likens horror to throwing a brick through a window over and over again. That can be the only explanation as to why he's filled it full of badly-done CGI hyenas that eat children, endless musical stings that crash out of nowhere and farcically set up jump moments (OMG, NO - oh, it's OK, it was all a dream). The plot is nonsensical, Stellen Skarsgaard as Merrin grumps his way through the film clearly hating every minute of it (everyone else is nondescrepit or bland or useless or, if you're Alan Ford, hilariously bad) and it doesn't even fit into the Exorcist mythology. For instance, if Pazuzu can leap about huge caverns here with superhuman bounds, why is it so easy for her to be bound to a bed 20 years later? That power would have come in pretty handy. Instead, we have extremely tasteless flashbacks to Merrin's time as a priest in a Nazi-occupied village and not a trace of invention to it. There are fleeting glimpses of some disturbing imagery - a still-born baby is birthed covered in writhing maggots - but it's mostly done for nothing more than shock value and is just depressingly unpleasant. The late 40s setting in Africa also negates part of what made the original so good - the utter normality of the suburbs set against the horror festering in one of the houses. Here, the exotic landscape undoes all the potential horror of the situation. It doesn't even have the decency to be as big and fascinating a car wreck as The Heretic is and is instead mainly dull. (2.5/10)

72. Imitation of Life (1959; Douglas Sirk)

Spoilers

A far better Sirk rewatch came with Imitation of Life. Lana Turner plays the widowed mother of a young girl. While playing on the beach one day she meets Annie, the black single mother of a light-skinned daughter. She also meets Steve, a struggling photographer. Steve becomes the love of her life and Annie becomes her best friend and housekeeper.  Turner compromises her relationships through her single-minded dedication to her acting career while Annie and her daughter grow apart through her daughter's desire to pass as white. This could have been as melodramatic as Magnificent Obsession, but the implausabilities here (Turner inviting two people home to live with her, her getting a job by telling a writer one of his scenes is terrible, etc) are never as off-putting as the ones in Obsession. The acting is a lot better here as well, with Juanita Moore a stand-out as Annie. Possibly Sirk's most impressive film, it certainly comes a lot closer to justifying his reputation as a great director.

So, sadly, no. I've been to the cinema just once in 2010, whence I saw Shutter Island. Even if I could get to the cinema every now and then (which I'd love to be able to do), the ones local to me are generally poor for the non-standard and the non-blockbuster...

Not seen The Sure Thing.

And I'm not sure how much a career decline should affect your view of his earlier work. He clearly *was* great at some point, and I want to celebrate that. Plus, I have very few others to vote for.

For me it would. Four great films and four abysmal ones would tend to cancel each other out for me. You could add Misery on the side of very good and When Harry Met Sally on the side of pretty bad. It'd be good if you could specify periods of time for a director.

Nah, North being the exception, he goes downhill after 1995. I still rate A Few Good Men and The American President.

It's beautiful. SPOILERS I was so moved at the end when it said that Chris got stabbed after trying to break up a fight. The unspoken words on that screen just work so well.

Gimli, I try really hard to like you, but then you make comments like this, and that Big Brother is better than Klaus Kinski films and Ghibli, and you just make it so difficult for me.

There was a time when a love of LOTR and Monsters was all it took to unite us, Swords. It's like Puff The Magic Dragon with us, and you're Jackie Paper.

Mandy's great in everything including Princess Bride, but the film is nothing special.
