    I’m a fan of James Whale, but to be honest I’ve only seen his more famous Universal horror flicks. Do you recommend either of these ones?

      I highly recommend both! THE IMPATIENT MAIDEN is a hilarious proto-screwball comedy about a secretary falling in love with her doctor. ONE MORE RIVER is a really fun melodrama about a woman running away from an abusive husband. They’re hard to track down but well worth it.

    Will you be posting a review of P.T.A’s Inherent Vice? I would very much like to hear your thoughts on it. I saw it yesterday and I think I might go to see it again to get a better understanding and maybe pick up some things that I may have missed the first time. Is that why you saw it twice?

      I will be posting a capsule review of INHERENT VICE on Monday so stay tuned. I definitely felt the need to see it a second time in order to get more out of it (and I had read already the book before I saw it). After a second viewing, I can say that it’s my favorite PTA film. But it’s also important to realize that it doesn’t matter if you don’t fully understand the “plot.” It’s insanely complicated on purpose in the best film noir tradition.
