    I really liked interstellar. A lot of people had trouble with the "love is the fifth dimension thing" but I think they are taking the movie too literally there. Another beautiful film by Christopher Nolan, my only complaint is that it could have done with tighter editing.

       ---   I haven't seen " Interstellar " yet however speaking of Nolan it would seem that he has another hit on his hands with " Dunkirk ". I've seen some of the Trailers for that film and it looks like a great movie.

    So hard to choose. From the classics definitely 12 Angry Man, Strangelove, One Two Three, Inherit the Wind. Also, pre-war Czech cinema is absolutely forgotten treasure, often on the topics of war and the ugly dealings with Czech people before and after the war by bigger seemingly "more" important nations. 

       ---   Interesting that you mentioned " 12 Angry Men ". I mean most of the main action of the film takes place in one room and yet a very good film with the great Henry Fonda.

    It just shows how important script and acting is. I quite like movies taking place in one room, because it heavily relies on what it wants to say and how. And 12 Angry men have a lot to say, I like the first version better though, with Fonda and Voskovec happy.png Very interesting one was also Closet Land with Alan Rickman.

    Recently I had the chance to view a film that won 6 Academy Awards in 1966, including Best Picture. The movie was " A Man For All Seasons " with Paul Scofield in the lead role. Also in the cast were Orson Welles, Leo McKern, Wendy Hiller, Robert Shaw, Suzanna York, Nigel Davenport and John Hurt. I had not seen the film in a lot of years and I really enjoyed seeing it again.

    Harry Dean Stanton has passed away at age 91 after a career in the movies spanning 60 years. Being a fan of Western films I'm very fond of " Missouri Breaks " which Stanton made with Jack Nicholson and Marlin Brando. Of course he also appeared in many many other movies as well.
