Re: Winter of Our Dreams, Pennies From Heaven, Cutter’s Way & Eye of the Needle.
All those titles are worthy tracking down. Winter of our Dreams & Cutter’s Way are two of the most bleakest films ever made. Pennies From Heaven though a musical is also rather bleak – great stuff.

Some of us go by first commercial release date anywhere in the world, some people go by imdb date and no doubt there are other reasons people make their choices to determine their respective year placements. Though Atlantic City didn’t play in the US until 1981 it opened in France, West Germany, Canada & Italy in 1980.

An interesting one. I note some people are claiming racism and that may very well be true to some degree. After all we don’t know the real personal views of voting members.
However, I think that ones of the primary reasons that Denzel Washington has failed to gain any BFTA nominations is that his Oscar nominated films don’t really resonate…[Read more]

I could never barely stand Benigni before he hit the big time internationally and I found Life is Beautiful puerile. The only saving grace of the film was Nicoletta Braschi.

Aunt Peg replied to the topic Which filmmaker among these has the greatest filmography overall?? in the forum Movies 4 months ago
Bergman probably with Fellini, Ford & Tarkovsky close behind.
Hitchcock & Scorsese have some great films but Scorsese in particular has a number of low points.
Welles comes next.
Spielberg comes next – the occasional very good film but most of his stuff is fluff.
Nolan???? There are more than 200 better directors than him.
