Re: Diary: A NolanFans Story

2 cents: I think there is a huge gap between a defense of free speech, no matter how misguided you think it is, and wanting to call someone an "illegal alien". I think banning him for this reason, if it is true, is a terrible mistake.

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

It looks like Ray is underrated because he is not as well known to the general public as his contemporaries, but he has serious critical clout, and the French guys (at Cahiers du Cinéma) adored him. But yes, In A Lonely Place is great, and for me contains Bogart's best performance. My favorite Ray t...

Re: HBO's Game of Thrones
