You can thank whatever pig god you pray to that you haven't turned me into a murderer.
This is too creepy and I have a real talent for doing it. So by sheer coincidence, I had also rented and have just watched Mutiny On the Bounty. Never seen it, it's both a multiple Oscar nominee (it lost to Lawrence of Arabia, one I admit I was just never that crazy about) and a Brando flick. Starring who else? Why, Trevor Howard, from the previous post! (And from The Third Man, he gets around).
Slightly different role, if you will. You could potentially not even recognize him.
And talk about downers, jesus.
Very good stuff, I was highly, highly impressed. It was also really gorgeous. (Brando was pretty easy on the eyes but I'm referring to the cinematography, actually). It should be noted it also lost the Best Cinematography Oscar to LOA, but on that one I concede.
It actually came on two discs, it's that long, but it was one where I barely noticed the passage of time. I think I will take up Al's suggestion of doing a top 10 for 2007 of what I really think are the best films I've seen this year. I'm still going to do the 2007 film release list, but might as well do a list of films I truly enjoyed.
Oh, and D just called. Albertsons has their Halloween candy out. No shit.
