Films watched last week:
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (David Fincher, 2008): 2/5. Not distasteful like Forrest Gump but boring nevertheless.
9 Songs (Michael Winterbottom, 2004): 1/5. Boring pornography with insipid rock music. Only good thing is that it lasts only slightly more than an hour.
To Have and Have Not (Howard Hawks, 1944): 5/5 (Rewatch). Typically Hawksian. A Masterpiece.
The Earrings of Madame De... (Max Ophuls, 1953): 5/5 (Rewatch). A perfect film. Note to self: don't be hasty in judging someone as shallow.
The Treasure of Sierra Madre (John Huston, 1948): 4.5/5 Saw it again after a long time. Was surprised how much of it had stayed with me.
