I watched Cairo not too long before The Artist came out. At this point, I can't say which I prefer but I might lean towards Cairo as the better movie. At the least it has some very funny moments.

Terence Davies is visiting the Aero Theatre this weekend! I'll be seeing his new film, The Deep Blue Sea, and hopefully The Long Day Closes after that. Joy!

Decisions, decisions...

Tomorrow: Anatomy of a Murder or A Clockwork Orange + Time After Time

Saturday: Anatomy of a Murder or if... + Evilenko

Sunday: Say Anything + Almost Famous or O Lucky Man!

So, James Stewart or a Malcolm McDowell double feature? Cameron Crowe double feature or a Malcolm McDowell epic? I've seen all of these with the exception of Evilenko (although I did see HBO's take on the same subject made 10 years earlier - 1994's Citizen X).

O Lucky Man!

I'd put this one at the top of your to-do list. They hardly ever show it, and McDowell will be there in person!

Hopefully I'll have time to watch Tarkovsky's The Sacrifice either today or tomorrow. Also, may watch the Abbot and Costello comedy, Hold That Ghost.

So far, my posts in this topic have read like enticements for moving to L.A., one of the best cities for seeing movies.

However...

Tomorrow morning my wife and I are driving up the coast to San Francisco, then taking the BART to Oakland to see Napoleon at the grand old Paramount Theatre on Saturday. Trusted sources have assured me it will be a you-had-to-have-been-there kind of event. I'm just hoping the seats I chose won't induce nosebleeds. (At $40+ per ticket, it's either my nose or my wallet.)

Read about the restoration in the NYT here.

BTW, there are still seats!

That sounds wonderful, Nathanael - Truffaut raved about Gance's Napoleon; what a rare treat to see it in a cinema!

I was going to post something here about this coming weekends movie line up.... but Nathaniel's post trumps pretty much anything that I'll be viewing. Congrats! :)

Won't be seeing Napoleon, but I will be seeing The Hunger Games (...yeah, I realize that's probably not anything to brag about). Also, I've got Nostalgia for the Light and Mysteries of Lisbon waiting for me, though I'm not sure I'll be able to fit them both in.

Looking forward to watching Young Adult again tonight, and seeing how I interpret the ending. I'm also curious about how Sarah will react to the film.

Of those two, I liked Nostalgia for the Light more (I'm not big on period pieces, though Mysteries is definitely worth watching). Plus, you could watch Nostalgia three times in the time it would take to watch Mysteries of Lisbon once.

Think I'm going to try and catch a double feature at the Aero Theatre tomorrow of Sunset Boulevard and Mulholland Dr..

Looking ahead to next month, the Aero has an interesting match up for Easter Sunday - Harvey and Donnie Darko.

Uh, I forgot to unlock the DVD case when I checked this title out, so it'll have to wait a couple of days. Instead I watched The First Grader and The Way last night.

Hoping to get to Jiro Dreams of Sushi today. Have a couple screeners I need to get to. Monday: Monsieur Lazhar screening, but they're also sending me a screener so I may just watch it at home.

Need some help here. El Topo and The Holy Mountain are playing on the big screen. Both tonight. Both at 11:55pm. I've seen portions of The Holy Mountain on an old Japanese import laserdisc, but never finished it as it was severely edited due to content. Which one would you all recommend?
