25th Hour: I did not like this movie. It did not hang together as well as it should have. Too bad since the premise was interesting.
Frida: I liked the way they used the paintings for some animations and moods.
The Quiet American: I haven’t read the book and I think books are always better than their movie adaptations. I did not see the dichotomy between the British journalist and the American CIA guy. They seemed similar except for the sunny optimism of an American and the typical pessimistic (or realist, as a British friend pointed out last week) attitude of the British. The movie was quite good though.
