Easy Virtue. Wonderful, sparkling adaptation of a 20's Noel Coward play with Jessica Biel and Colin Firth. A really pleasant surprise - funny, witty and stylish.

Don't bother to knock.

I dunno what it is about these movies but I just can't get into them. I remember liking old movies as a kid but now as an adult I think they are slowwww.

Saw Duplicity and thought it quite good. Its filmed backwards in time, so figuring out whats happening is complicated. So I need to watch it again now that I know the spoiler.

"The Big Lebowski"....one of my all time favorites.....brilliant....great lines....a great lineup of quirky and interesting actors.....much profanity abounds...the characters are interesting and endearing.....I realize not everybody enjoys the Coen's films.....never a dull moment....lost count how many times I've watched it.....BTW a great soundtrack......

Watched Mongol, the 2007 film by the Russian director. It covers the first half of Genghis Khan's life. If you've read much about him, it will be interesting for what they chose to leave in and out about his early life.

The Duchess

Yeah, Keira's gotten really thin. Thought Ralph Fiennes was outstanding.

Agreed, but after a while their movies all sort of blur together, though.

The Blur comment is probably right.....but I would still watch a Coen Brothers film over some of the drivel that is coming out of Hollywood.....I like David Lynch films also and they have that quirky/out there theme going on.... Have to admit I did not like Coen's "Burn After Reading"....Loved "No Country For Old Men".....many people did not like the ending....But they followed the book's ending....I read Cormac McCarthy's book and I wondered how the brothers were going to do it.........I think it turned out well....BTW.....Their next project is "True Grit".....Again they are going to follow the original story.....which is quite different from John Wayne's Rooster Cogburn character...Should be interesting.....
