The Devil Wears Prada - 7/10

I could probably watch Meryl Streep eat Captain Crunch for 100 minutes and it would be amazing.

^this is true. She is one of the, if not the best actress of our time.

Last night:
The Departed

Tonight:
Bourne Ultimatum

What can I say. Both were great. I think I'm still trying to figure a thing or two out in The Departed. Great acting, and I like the end with Wahlberg. BU is non-stop action. I don't know how they filmed some of that. Amazing that Bourne never has a scratch or bruise on him. As far as Finney's character though, didn't he commit suicide in the 2nd? Or is he playing someone else this time

Finney isn't in BU, outside of flashbacks if I recall correctly.

they looked a lot a like. I was kinda confused when I saw him on screen tonight, and I went alone, so I had no one to confer with

RFK
4/5

This was a made-for-TV movie from 2002 on TNT or TBS or something that I rented from Netflix. Linus Roache did a heckuva job as Bobby Kennedy. James Cromwell, who I think is a fine actor, was a strange casting choice as LBJ. This wasn't a great film, but it was decent, and told the story of Bobby Kennedy from his brother's death to his own death. RFK is my favorite American political figure, so maybe I'm giving this an extra star for that alone. America would be so different if Bobby had gone on and won the 1968 election....

The film moved me, but probably not as much as Bobby, the 2006 film about his last day.

Does anyone remember Brian Cox as Hannibal Lecter in Michael Mann's Manhunter (remade a few years ago as Red Dragon)? In my opinion, Cox gave a much more natural (and ultimately creepier because of that approach) performance than Anthony Hopkins, and while the film is certainly a bit dated with Mann's Miami Vice style, I think it's a superior film.

CSI's William Petersen plays the lead (Edward Norton did the honors in Red Dragon), and he's just such a great actor. I'm glad he's found a late-career resurgence on television. He was also in To Live & Die in L.A., which was directed by William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist), but totally feels like a Michael Mann film.

Manhunter is my second favorite Mann film, and far superior to Red Dragon.

I remember it fondly, yes. Can't say it's better than Heat or the Insider or even Thief, but I do like it.

I actually thought that To Live & Die in LA WAS a Mann fuilm, huh. Dafoe is in that too, no?

Yes, he actually plays the bad guy, a counterfeiter. It's pretty notable for an attempt to top the chase scene from French Connection (widely considered the best of all time) with two cars going the wrong way down a Los Angeles freeway. It's pretty killer.

I just looked this thing up on IMDB, and discovered that (a) Friedkin initiated this project after failing to helm Manhunter, and (b) Mann unsuccessfully sued Friedkin for ripping off Miami Vice with this film.

Weird, huh?
