I used to be a huge film buff, but not so much anymore. Movies are crap now.

A really good one, funny too. 'Love Honour and Obey' It's not new and it's an English film. I love Ray Winstone!

Here's a quick scene:

Atonement was a beautiful love story, though sad. The music score was outstanding.

I also like a lot of Scorsese's films. I'm curious about how Ben Affleck will become as a director. I didn't care for 'Gone baby Gone', but I did like The Town. Haven't seen Argo yet. I'm looking forward to his new movie about Whitey Bulger.

The Departed was great!

A Face in the Crowd(1957)

More timely now, perhaps, than when it was first released in 1957, Elia Kazan's overheated political melodrama explores the dangerous manipulative power of pop culture. It exposes the underside of Capra-corn populism, as exemplified in the optimistic fable of grassroots punditry Meet John Doe. In Kazan's account, scripted by Budd Schulberg, the common-man pontificator (Andy Griffith) is no Gary Cooper-style aw-shucks paragon. Promoted to national fame as a folksy TV idol by radio producer Patricia Neal, Griffith's Larry "Lonesome" Rhodes turns out to be a megalomaniacal rat bastard. The film turns apocalyptic as Rhodes exploits his power to sway the masses, helping to elect a reactionary presidential candidate. The parodies of television commercials and opinion polling were cutting edge in their day (Face in the Crowd was the Network of the Eisenhower era), and there are some startling, near-documentary sequences shot on location in Arkansas. An extraordinary supporting cast (led by Walter Matthau and Lee Remick) helps keep the energy level high, even when the satire turns shrill and unpersuasive in the final reel. There's an interesting parallel in Tim Robbins's snide pseudodocumentary Bob Roberts: both these pictures have almost as much contempt for the lemmings in the audience as for the manipulative monsters who herd them over the cliff. --David Chute


Beau Geste (1939)


Beau, John, and Digby Geste are three inseparable, adventurous brothers who haven been adopted into the wealthy household of Lady Brandon. When money in the uppercrust household grows tight, Lady Brandon is forced to sell her most treasured jewel the mighty "Blue Water" sapphire. The household gets it out for one final look, the lights go out and it vanishes stolen by one of the brothers, no doubt. That night, Beau, Digby, and John each "confess" and slip out, John leaving behind Isabel, whom he loves. They all join the Foreign Legion...

The Killing (1956)

After getting out of prison, Johnny Clay masterminds a complex race-track heist, but his scheme is complicated by the intervention of the wife of a teller (George Peatty) in on the scheme, the boyfriend of the wife, airport regulations, and a small dog. Written by Andrew Hyatt <[email protected]>

Johnny Clay has a plan. After spending 5 years in Alcatraz, he decides that if he's going to commit crimes, the risk had better be worth the punishment. He then proceeds to mastermind a brilliant criminal scheme to steal $2,000,000 from a local racetrack in which "no one will get hurt." The only flaw in his plan is that he does not consider one of his co-horts' greedy, shrewish wife and her ruthless boyfriend. That's when something goes wrong... Written by Marc-David Jacobs <[email protected]>

Ex-convict Johnny Clay tells his girl friend, Fay, he has plans for making money, and indeed he has. He rounds up a gang and brings them in on a seemingly fool-proof scheme to rob a race track of $200,000. The first thread unravels when Sherry Peatty, wife of gang-member George Peatty, tells her boyfriend Val Cannon about the plan, and he cuts himself in on that action also. The robbery is completed and the gang goes to the hideout where Johnny will join them later. Val sticks up the robbers, a shot is fired, and all hands are soon dispatched. Johnny, with the money in a suitcase, joins Fay at the airport. And the fat lady still hasn't sung. Written by Les Adams <[email protected]>

I saw that one again the other week on TCM: when that bug-eyed jew weasel Lorre is put on trial by the underworld and starts shrieking that he demands to be turned over to the police and that "I CAN'T HELP IT!!", I just want to reach through the screen and....

An excellent depiction of late Weimar Germany.

68 years ago, such beautiful colors, excellent diction spoken so naturally, and such panache. Enjoy.


Though because White people did not control the story telling of our ex Nation few stories put to film inspired us to strive for the good of all and to preserve real real freedom which we have not had since 1861, but was never smashed totally till Stalin's lover FDR and Cabal came along.

Here is the whole movie. Part One.
When they realized what this was it got terrible reviews and was deep sixed by Hollywood and NYC.
35 million in 1998 dollars. Like Alex has said, itz not about money, but about keeping us brain washed, so dumping this meant nothing, but DVD sales were very high.

Ride With The Devil

by Daniel McCarthy

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon by Taiwanese director Ang Lee won four Academy Awards last Sunday, including best foreign language film. Between the awards and the box-office success of the movie there is good reason to think that Lee’s back catalog may attract renewed interest. Let’s hope that it does, because among Lee’s previous work is a very rare sort of film, one that deals even-handedly and even sympathetically with the Southern side of the War Between the States. The film in question is Ride with the Devil.

Ride with the Devil is set in Missouri, where the fighting took place less between Yankee and Confederate armies than between partisan guerillas – or between native Missourians and Unionist terrorists. Abolitionist zealots from Kansas called "Jayhawkers" frequently raided Missouri throughout the 1850’s, plundering and killing Missourians and generally practicing what would now be called "ethnic cleansing." The action of Ride with the Devil begins with one such raid, in which Jayhawkers brutally kill a man for sympathizing with secession. The man’s son, Jack Chiles (Skeet Ulrich), survives and along with his friend Jake "Dutchie" Roedel (Tobey McGuire) joins a force of Missouri irregulars called the Bushwhackers, who specialize in ambushing Yankee troops.

Jake, called "Dutchie" because of his German parentage, is the film’s primary protagonist. His friend Jack considers him "as Southern as they come," but others are suspicious of his foreign pedigree. Indeed Jake’s father is a Union-sympathizer and disapproves of his son’s activity, although the Yankees kill him for it anyway. Harried and hunted by Union troops and separated from the rest of the Bushwhackers, Jake and Jack, along with a Southerner named George and his freed slave Holt, go to ground in the backwoods of southwestern Missouri. Secessionist sympathizers from a near-by town keep the four of them fed and, when possible, provide them with hospitality. This is particularly true of a young widow named Sue Lee (Jewel Kilcher – yes, the pop singer Jewel, in a surprisingly unobtrusive performance). Jake fancies Sue Lee, but she prefers Jack, whose days are numbered once his shoulder becomes infected from a bullet wound.

So far the film has been a collection of cinematic cliches in a civil war setting: buddy-movie (Jake and Jack), revenge motive (their fathers’ deaths), love triangle, etc. The actors are all competent and the cinematography, shot on-location in Missouri, is gorgeous. What begins to make Ride with the Devil extraordinary as it progresses, however, is the understanding that Ang Lee and screenwriter James Schamus (adapting Daniel Woodrell’s novel Woe to Live On) show of the war’s underlying nature and causes.

The most explicit demonstration of this comes when Missouri gentleman Orton Brown (Tom Wilkinson) hosts Jake and Jack to a dinner at his house. Brown seems somewhere between bemused and saddened by Jack’s description of the Bushwhacker’s mission. Finally he tells Jack that the Bushwhackers, and the Southern cause, cannot win. Why? Is the Yankee military unstoppable? No, says Brown, rather the cause was lost the day the Unionists and abolitionists built the town of Lawrence, Kansas and the first thing they erected there was a schoolhouse. The Unionists brought children from all around to attend school there, to learn the same thing. The Unionists wanted everyone to think and live the same way and would not rest until they did. The South didn’t give a damn about such conformity and was content to let people live their own lives. That was why the South would lose, and the Yankees would win. It all began with that public schoolhouse.

As Ang Lee himself writes on the movie’s official website: "I grew up in Taiwan, where older people always complained that kids are becoming Americanized: they don’t follow tradition, and so we are losing our culture. As I got the chance to go around a large part of the world with my films, I would hear the same complaints. It seems so much of the world is becoming Americanized. When I read Daniel Woodrell’s book Woe to Live On, which we based Ride with the Devil on, I realized that the American Civil War was, in a way, where it all started. It was where the Yankees won not only territory but, in a sense, a victory for a whole way of life and of thinking."

From the War of Northern Aggression (let’s call a spade a spade) to the bombing of Serbia and starving of Iraq, for a certain kind of person anything has been justified to spread "American" (i.e. Yankee) values, at gun-point or by more insidious means of control. Ang Lee is no crypto-Confederate, in fact he says he generally approves of what values and institutions America has spread. Who could object to "democracy" and "capitalism," after all? Nevertheless, Ride with the Devil makes clear exactly how that diffusion of values was accomplished and what price others paid for it. And anyone who is not utterly complacent and public-schooled will ask himself on seeing this film whether there wasn’t a better way it could have happened. Certainly the institution of slavery was abolished throughout the rest of the West without a war like ours.

Ride with the Devil is a tragedy because we know the heroes will lose. The Bushwhackers are picked off one by one. Worst of all they are betrayed from within: one of their number, Pitt Mackeson (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) prefers to pursue a personal vendetta against Jake rather than fight the Union forces. Nor does the film flinch from showing the excesses of the rebels, who at one point slaughter almost every male in Lawrence. But for all that Ride with the Devil is not pessimistic and ends on a note of hope. The cause is lost but Jake sets out to make a new life for himself with his wife and family. No matter how bleak the political situation becomes there is always freedom in private life, which is true even today. The problem, of course, is that those who want everyone else to think and live the same way will not stop with destroying political self-determination. That government schoolhouse means to destroy the free family as surely as it meant to destroy Southern independence.

(Other reviews of Ride with the Devil that readers may find useful: the Flick Filosopher, Pop Matters, and if you can tolerate him, Roger Ebert.)

Quote from a reader.

Angie rated it 5 of 5 stars
I have to admit...I saw the movie first only because I love one of the actors in it! Now that I've read the book-WOW!!!! Pure genius! Amazing dialog and very true stories of the Civil War. One of the reasons I read it is that I live in Missouri around the area's that much of this takes place. Daniel Woodrells writing is so amazing and true to the times that I really could not put this book down.

I have also read "Winters Bone" by the same author and can say that Daniel has a real gift for speaking in the language of the circumstances of each book-Winters bone was written and spoken so differently!!!

I really think this book should be required reading in school, it is part of our American History and is written so well! My only regret is that I haven't read it sooner!!!

Gone with the Wind is a great Film. Hitler watched it with his friends on the Berghof. He loved it and asked Gobbels "Can we make such movies too?"

"Charley Varrick" was good. I still can't believe Vernon got away with the 'bagel snapper' line, even then. Jew Matthau and the others were at their best in this movie.

I don't think I've watched a movie that has been produced since the early 80s. Wouldn't want to. Probably less than a dozen since the 60s. Jew noir was better when it was still, at least, very thinly disguised and contained a plot.

Bottom dollar, with few exceptions movies are trash and a waste of time.

See R. L. Dabney on the vice of fiction as entertainment.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trader_Horn_(1931_film)

Trader Horn, 1931 Harry Carey, excellent movie. It can not be found on DVD.

A poster at VNNF posted two links for seller's of the movie.

Both seller web sites had an email address and phone number, but neither every returned an email, or phone call.

The poster who posted the information is not a regular poster.

Strange IMO.
