I found it very odd that Aurora didn't want to lend money to her daughter. She seemed to have plenty enough and you'd actually think that controlling mother like that would probably jump at the change to lend money to her daughter because it would giver her leverage in their relationship. I think it was partly there because it's simply funny but also to show what it might sometimes be like to be middle-aged single woman, thus explaining the desperate behavior of Anjelica Huston's character. I agree and I have though about that many times before. Most of the so called neo-realist films are pretty much just melodramas that just happen to be about poor people with some location shooting mixed in. I just couldn't narrow it down to just 3 so I'm gonna just give my top 5 instead. In no particular order: Rio Bravo Red River The Twentieth Century Gentlemen Prefer Blondes Only Angels Have Wings I agree. I just rewatched it and it's now probably my favourite Woody Allen film. I mean, there are both still around. Especially in a big cities like New York where Hannah and Her Sisters take place. I kinda loved the film, especially the visual style, but that's exactly what I was thinking while I watched it. In case you didn't know, GWTW has intermission. So when I saw it earlier this year in theatre I went to bathroom once, during that intermission. I saw it in theatre in 2019. Revival houses and film archives are a thing, you know. And of course GWTW has had numerous wider re-releases during it's years as well. Exactly. Remember that Vertigo was also flop when it first premiered. Great art like this is made for eternity, not for fleeting contemporary reaction Michael Cimino's Heaven's Gate is haunting, beautiful, melancholic epic masterpiece. One of the greatests films ever made. Just like Olivier Assays said, it’s not just that it has aged well; for some reason the passing of time (remember the genuinely moving tagline of the film: "What one loves in life are things that fade") reveals this film as the extraordinary, transcendent triumph that critics couldn't see then. And the way it finally reaches us through the echo of time only makes it more moving, heartbreaking, even. View all replies >
