The Silent Partner (1978) terrific Canadian heist film with Elliott Gould. Deserves to be more widely known.

I'm on the side of him being overrated. Though I'm not a fan of method acting; they always look like they are trying to remember where they left their keys to me.

"...I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." -MLK Jr.

Ministry of Fear - didn't live up to my expectations for it. The plot seemed a little ropey to me.


Sing Street a film for warm fuzzy feelings. Kind of reminded me of an old fave That Sinking Feeling.

There was nothing that made it good. Can't say I've ever seen a film with Jennifer Lawrence in that I didn't hate, and this just seemed like a pretentious take on horror film cliches.

A Taxi Driver 2017

A great movie about the Gwang-ju Uprising in Korea (1980) and the camarederie that develops between a German reporter who is there (despite the ban on foreign journalists) to film the massacre and the taxi driver who takes him from Seoul to Gwang-ju.
