This week’s Watercooler Musical Interlude is the third track from Bob Dylan’s soundtrack to Sam Peckinpah’s Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid. I’m not sure why.I just felt like mixing it up a little this week. With the election bearing down on us on Tuesday, it’s hard to stay focused on movies. In fact, if things break for the other guy, I could see myself writing this blog from France.

That’s all from me this week. Now it’s your turn. Has anyone seen anything worth talking about since last week? Lay it on me.

  1. No need to apologize for this Craig! This is utterly divine Dylan from a justly respected western! I do know it well, and much enjoyed the re-listen.

    Needless to say, we in the NYC area have had to deal with this terrible event over the past week, and watching movies was not part of the equation.
    Lucille, Broadway Bob and I did however, get over to the recovering Manhattan on Saturday night, attending an 8:00 P.M. showing of THE DETAILS with Toby Maguire. This black comedy overlap was laughable (and not in a good way) and Maguire was horribly miscast.

    The Details * 1/2 (Saturday night) Angelika Film Center

    Tomorrow is a very big day for so many stateside. I do believe that our man Barack Obama will be re-elected, and tomorrow night will be cause for a huge celebration.

  2. In addition to Cloud Atlas, which I mention on another thread, I saw Seven Psychopaths, which I give about a B+. I particulary enjoyed the acting of Colin Farrell and Christopher Walken. The narrative by Martin McDonagh sometimes gets a bit precious (as he tends to do this) but there’s still plenty to chew on as long as one is okay with violent comedy.

  3. Watched Sweet Bird of Youth on Saturday night with friends. That Tennessee Williams was something else (not to mention Paul Newman). Yesterday I saw Life of Brian (for the 322nd time) in the theater. Always funny.

  4. That Tennessee Williams was something else . . .

    I’d like to add Geraldine Page to the list!

  5. GP as Alexandra Del Lago was great! Did I mention Paul New…Oh, yes. I see I did. :)

  6. Been away from my computer most of the last couple of days. Now I’ve got my head firmly wedged up election ass (who knew there were cocktails up here)
