No, but I will. That's a hell of a cast and John Dahl made Joy Ride so it must have a level of genius in it to some degree.

Good to hear, as it's in my personal Top 5 as you may remember. Also curious to know what format you saw it in.

The Weather Man was a pleasant surprise. A shame Verbinski got stuck in the Pirates franchise and working with Kurtzman/Orci crap.

Saw this a long time ago. Director John Dahl was doing some great neo-noir in the 90s, including The Last Seduction.

I had to watch it on DVD for trailer-cutting purposes. I'll be seeing it in 35mm in a few weeks for this series. I can PM you the titles playing all the way 'til May if you're interested:

Awesome that you're going to get a 35mm screening. I saw the 25th anniversary in the theatre and it was quite amazing.

Anything short of a projected DVD just ain't the same.

I bet it'll be the same print. Reading about Beatty/Storaro's relationship and how they argued over the use of the camera, settling on the second half being more dynamic and expressive post-revolution was fascinating. The long-take of the train rolling through the desert is pure Storaro. Diane Keaton's the heart-and-soul of the film for me, especially in her scenes with Jack Nicholson.

Slightly off-topic, the same sort of relationship between Richard Rush & Laszlo Kovacs for Getting Straight brings the whole director/cinematography dynamic into question for me insofar as how much "credit" one gets for the idea, if such a line of thought should exist. Have any of you all seen that? Elliott Gould crushes it.

Caught that underseen gem a couple years ago; bought the DVD after another viewing of The Stunt Man. Great stuff.

Have you seen Rush's Freebie And The Bean? Now that film is fucking nuts.

I adore the hell out of Freebie and the Bean. The central car chase has to be the most destructive thing put to celluloid. Got to see the stunt coordinator talk about how that sequence was staged and oh my god. Even their nicknames are brazenly offensive.

Perfect double bill with Hickey & Boggs as a Proto-Buddy Cop Night.

I love Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty. I have not seen Reds.

What the hell?

I have the actual HD-DVD at home. Some great interviews on there as well.
