12.08.20Internet Another all-time classic crime film full of amazing performances, filmmaking, and story. I love watching smart people doing what they're good at and this cops n robbers opera is watching three hours of that. Like a lot of these male-dominated movies though, the female leads are pretty under-written. I'm not sure I understand Edie's "appalatch" accent other than I guess to say that no one that lives in LA is from LA? But otherwise... mwah.
04.19.08DVD I've been playing this game called Call of Duty 4 and basically it's a bunch of I'm-so-badass firefights that reminded me of the amazing shootout sequence in this film. Plus I was in the mood to see everything that's great about this movie... the procedure, Pacino's line reading of "GREAT ASS", the beautiful LA photography, the completeness of a cops & robbers story well told.

I liked it.
03.20.05DVD yay... i like this for the same reasons that i like The Wire, but this is great because it manages to paint all these compelling character portraits in 3 hours rather than 12. I think because there's so much that has to go on in this story in such a relatively short amount of time, the movie never has time to slow down and tell you exactly what's happening. You have to actively follow it and examine what the scenes mean as they play. It makes for a really solid, complete story told very well that i can keep going back to for a long time.
