    “Night of the Creeps” was on in the background, and I would bet that you watched about 50% of it. That doesn’t even count?!

    I have seen numbers 1, 4, 6, 8 and 9. 1,4,8, and 9 are * * * * star great ones and 6 is a * * * 1/2 star very good one. On my site I posted my favorite films of Terry Gilliam, Jean-Luc Godard and D.W. Griffith. The reason it took me long to post the D.W. Griffith list is because he has directed so many short films that I am trying to figure out how to rank them. If you read the list do not be surprised If you do not see any of his short films on there. One day I will do a separate entry on that. I heard you did not like documentary filmmaker Frederick Wiseman’s At Berkley judging by that one tweet in the right hand corner on top. I will have to see If my opinion is the same when I see it. I loved his last documentary entitled Boxing Gym.

      John, I agree with those ratings. Again, all of the films you’ve seen were ones I showed in class except for the Bujalski, which I saw for pleasure. I’ll check out those lists. I’m a Godard AND Griffith nut.

      Yeah, I’m sorry to say I really disliked the Wiseman film for many reasons (some of them quite complex). I previewed it for the Chicago International Film Festival. I’ll have a capsule review up in about a week and a half.

    On my site I just posted two new entries entitled “My Favorite Howard Hawks Films” (Final Revision) and “My Favorite Monte Hellman Films” (Final Revision). The reason for this reminder is because Hawks is one of the legendary film directors of Hollywood’s Golden Age and Monte Hellman because he is a remarkable director often talked about when it comes to independent cinema.

    I have just posted on my site two new entries entitled “My Favorite Werner Herzog Films” (Final Revision) and “My Favorite Alfred Hitchcock Films” (Final Revision). Herzog is without a doubt a most talked about filmmaker and Hitchcock is obviously “The Master of Suspense” or at least one of the many:)
