A Separation is sub titled. It's well worth the trouble to watch, though.
Thanks for the tip, i will probably still watch it....
Bloody Sunday (2002)
On January 30th, 1972, a protest turned to a massacre in Northern Ireland. This film is very effective at giving one a sense of what many protests around the world today have become. It's done in a documentary-style. The event is famous, yet I've read very little about that time. It's a very good film!
The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976)
David Bowie is an alien who comes to Earth from a planet suffering a catastrophic drought. He uses his knoweledge of alien technology to found a company and becomes fabulously wealthy. His desire is to find a way to transport water back to his planet, but just as he is about to leave he is detained by the government. He has a girlfriend who introduces him to human sexual acts and alcohol. By the end of the movie he is a broken man.
Bowie's performance in this movie is very good. He's credible as an alien, yet he is innocent and human and later corupt throuh experience and even more human. I saw this movie when I was 15, and never having seen the technique before, I was struck by the rapid editing.
You don't notice subtitles after a while. They are really not bad at all.
Actually, I turn subtitles on for most movies I watch, regardless of whether or not it's in English. Not sure how I got in that habit, but now I'm accustomed to it.
loved the subtitles even my kids use it.

Its good if you miss little things, as I do sometimes. I get frustrated when I have to rewind three times and I am still not sure what they said, unless I blast it.
i have seen the movie the outlaw called josey wales,the contract was written with blood coming from commanche chief and josey wales hand as they agreed to live peacefully thru the land.the blood contract was also seen in thein the sheeps of josey wales for the indians to know that it was josey wales sheep.
The movie Outlaw Josey Wells has Quantrill as a Northern Abolitionist, instead of the pro-slavery psychopathic scum that he was.
Quantrill as a Northerner? That doesn't fit at all.
I keep thinking I am missing something or misunderstanding the movie, because no reviews point out the historical inaccuracy. I once thumbed through the novel Outlaw Josey Wells and it also seems to be saying that Quantrill is fighting to keep Kansas slave free.
I remember Quantrill's raiders killed all the men and boys in Lawrence, Kansas. I know there were worse massacres in human history, but I've been to Lawrence, so the story has a higher impact on me.
I went to the University of Kansas at Lawrence, as an undergraduate and also went to law school there. The football stadium is located where a cornfield used to be where people hid during Quantrill's raid.
I don't believe in ghosts, but if they do exist, seems like that would be the place for them.
I usually watch at least one movie a day, but for the past months I have only seen a few due to a growing interest in TV-series. I know, I'm falling into depravity, but although most of them still follow a formula I think TV-series have been greatly improved over the past decade. Also, I find the format as such to be highly enjoyable. When watching episodes in a row instead of weekly, it becomes the novel version of movies. Whereas many times I've felt that movies I really enjoyed were too short, like I wanted to stay a lot longer in the story, that's were the series give the opportunity.
It started with "Lost" for me, that I started watching a couple of years ago and got completely hooked on as it was very original and intriguing compared to any series I had seen before. Anyone here hooked on TV-series as well?
Should the answer be a resounding NO! I will gracefully never mention it again in the movie thread and apologize for infecting it with such trivia
I wouldn't call it hooked, but I have been watching Community on hulu and The Big Bang Theory on dvd. Both are pretty funny.
i read that captain william quantrill was first a school teacher was supportive of his family learned gambling then loses his two best friends and went to work in continous support of his family,his perceptions and belief change with the times as he learn new things to experience .he even deserted his general and ten of those who believe in him and formed the confederates guerillas that growed to nearly 500 fighting the union in marauding style of the indians. is there any film depiction that portrays him as starrer not like the outlw called josey wales.
There is a movie Dark Command, starring John Wayne. It is the only movie that John Wayne and Roy Rogers were both in. Walter Pidgen plays a school teacher named Cantrell which is loosely based on Quantrill. His mother is played by Marjorie Main (famous as Ma Kettle in the Ma and Pa Kettle movies). There is a 1999 movie Ride With The Devil based on the Lawrence raid. I have never seen Ride with the Devil but it is supposed to be very inaccurate. I think Quantrill is a minor character in various movies about Jesse James.
Capote the Movie One of Truman Capote’s aunts lived next door to “Nell” Harper Lee when they were children. When Lee wrote To Kill a Mockingbird she based the character Dill on Capote. The character Scout is highly autobiographical. The movie Capote is about Capote writing his non fiction novel In Cold Blood. When Capote decides to go to Kansas to research the Clutter family murder he takes along his childhood friend Harper Lee. Philip Seymour Hoffman’s brilliant portrayal of Truman Capote has been highly praised, and rightfully so; but its not a one man show. Catherine Keener portrayal of the quiet and unassuming Nell Harper Lee is also strong and a perfect counterpoint to the flamboyant Capote. The dialogue in the movie is excellent and includes many witty exchanges between Capote and Lee. I would subtitle the movie The Further Adventures of Scout and Dill and highly recommend it.
