...I mean, did you see the way everyone felt dirty just seeing the ROLAND JOFFE FILM???

Is he related to that guy who used to draw the pictures for the back page of MAD Magazine, where you fold the page in thirds or whatever, and the pieces of the picture that connect at the folds form another picture?

I only say this because Raf Fiennes was a major disappointment as Mordimer.

But he was great in "Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit".  I know, I know, how can anyone be "great" in a voice-role in an animation movie?  Generally, I'd agree with you, but if there's an exception to the rule of "there's no such thing as a 'great' voice performance in an animation movie," then it's Fiennes as the gold-digging cad in "W&G:COTWR".

I somewhat regret my rant from last night about Roland Joffe, but I was just highly amused at how much reviewers went out of their way to say how dirty they felt about the whole thing.

>>>>>>-- a flick called Revolutionary Road (at least, right now that's what it's called). 

The title rings a bell, i.e., Richard Yates' best novel (IMO) from the early 60s. DiCap and Winslet seem right for the principles. Marital strife in suburbia. Very slick prose, reminiscent of Salinger. I was so impressed and immediately delved into more Yates, but nothing else measured up, in my view.

Oilcan, Whisky, Jose Feliciano -- ya got no problems.   The dubbing for tv version has some pretty funny substitutions, which has the kidnappers conversing at times like the Hardy boys.  I'd never heard the word "fooze" or "foozling" before seeing the dubbed version.

"Little Children" arrives in the mail today.  Aside from seeing some Winslet skin, I have no agenda in renting this. 

I

It's horrible. I think it was the one movie that I could not bother to review other than maybe saying that Winslet falls in love with the guy who was the Mormon (or Meryl Streep's son;here we go again....) in, Angels in America, that clerk who works for Al Pacino and sent Meryl to the electric chair when she was Mrs. Rosenberg.

The only funny moments are when Winslet comes in the door because her husband doesn't  hear her knocking while he is having computer-sex; she later comes back and goes through his waste-basket under the desk, and has to mime smelling all the crumpled kleenex.

Ps. she has a very good figure for her body-type, first shown off to J.Broadbent, in Iris.

Oh wait, I get it now.  jbottle has insufficient happy memories to enable him to fend off the Cruciatus Curse. 

Was that a Harry Potter reference by any chance...

I can't picture either lead doing Revolutionary Road.Makes me think the story is not true to the Novel.Young Hearts Crying or A Good School would make good movies if in the right hands.
