100 Films -- Days 35 through 39

Thursday night I saw Scarlet Street, a really great noir from Fritz Lang.

No movie on Friday night.

Saturday night's film was Zorba the Greek. This is just the kind of movie I need to see. It's all about taking what life gives you and making the best of it.

Sunday I watched both Blow-Up ("Swingin' London, Baby") and The Bad and the Beautiful. I've been wanting to see The Bad and the Beautiful for a long time, since I had seen clips from it in documentaries. It was a decent movie. I'll have to re-read Ebert's essay on Blow-Up so I know what the heck is going on there.

Tonight's movie was Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train. That's a twisted little movie. You can really see where Hitch was going in his later work while watching this.

Bonus: The list of 400 candidate films nominated for the AFI Top 100 Films.

Still five days behind...

Walker is a creepy as they come. Strangers on a Train is one of Hitch's best efforts.
