Watched the first two episodes of Modern Love (Prime) — very good! ★★★★★
I am prone to finding this genre “vapid, nauseating” as the Guardian called it — but not so far in this series.
Bought this movie made by his daughter Rebecca Miller on Google Play and it worked on Chrome (not Safari) on the Mac, plugged into the TV.
Worth doing! The film about this man’s life is inspiring and moving. It had a big impact on me.
We have been watching movies written and directed by his daughter Rebecca Miller and they are great. Full of life, intense, psychodramatic. Leaves us with lots to discuss.
Though the filmmakers present ample evidence of Viv’s antisocial behavior — at one point she pulls a rubber knife on Virginia Woolf in order to steal her taxi — they never really manage to get into Tom’s mind to the extent that his motives become clear. “Tom & Viv” is a handsome, literate film in the Merchant-Ivory mode, but there’s a hole right at the center of it — right where the poet himself should be.
Thoroughly enjoyed this documentary about two Hungarians who came to the US in 1953. Both great cinematographers.
On the strength of this dock watched Easy Rider again – more interesting after hearing Laszlo Kovacs talk about the movie.
Now looking forward to McCabe and Mrs Miller
