I discuss why I LOOOVE Richard Linklater’s 1995 film Before Sunrise, the first in a trilogy, starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy and how it might be just the right medicine for today’s stressful, scary world.
I take quick looks at the Best Picture nominees of 1931/1932 (for the first few years of the award, the Academy used a non-calendar year): Arrowsmith (1931), Bad Girl (1931), The Champ (1931), Five Star Final (1931), One Hour with You (1932), Shanghai Express (1932), and The Smiling Lieutenant (1931).
I take a look back at the delightful romantic drama Marty, which was the Best Picture of 1955 and won its lead Ernest Borgnine Best Actor. Co-star Betsy Blair was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
Borgnine and Blair tell the story of two people’s search for love and a future. But let’s see how Marty pulls off this small-scale idea.
