Not quite the oldest - she has a notable role alongside Dirk Bogarde in Quartet, an anthology film, released a year earlier in 1948. I haven't seen A Boy, a Girl and a Bike - thanks for the tip! An iconic actress (The Avengers, A Night to Remember, Jason and the Argonauts, as well as Goldfinger) and she always seemed like a lovely lady, too - R.I.P. Yes, it's a pretty wonderful film. Stunning photography, a beautiful score, several memorable performances (Terence Stamp steals the film IMO) and in Julie Christie, you have a Bathsheba whom one can imagine three men falling hopelessly in love with. I've only seen two - The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, which I didn't much care for, and Lola, which I liked a lot. I have a lot of homework to do on Demy. Belle de jour Repulsion A Christmas Tale It was a mixed bag - I cringed every moment Mykelti Williamson was on screen - but I do think this is one of Washington's best performances, and there is fine work by Viola Davis and Jovan Adepo. It's not very cinematic, like many play adaptations, and is overlong, but it's solid and reasonably engrossing. 6/10 1. Fearless 2. Winter Kills 3. Hell or High Water 4. Tucker: The Man and His Dream 5. The Last Picture Show hm: Cutter’s Way, The Fisher King, The Fabulous Baker Boys, True Grit, Crazy Heart Fences Malcolm X A Soldier's Story Training Day Crimson Tide I once saw this film described as the movie equivalent of a western theme park ride. It's like a greatest hits compilation of the genre - not a bad movie exactly but not an original bone in its body, and awfully long. He looks like Tom Cruise if Tom Cruise was a character in a Wes Anderson movie. View all replies >
