09.07.07Paramount Last ticket in my Paramount book this year... I've actually had the DVD of this since my birthday in July but haven't watched it because I knew I'd be able to see it theatrically. I always felt pretty jipped that Austin didn't get a run of this last year when the print was going around and everyone was talking about how good it is - it's one of the few film-related things that Dallas got but Austin didn't - so I was about as psyched as a man can be to see this. Plus, I sort of knew what I was getting into. I know Melville's slow-burn technique and was ready to be patient with it. And like every other Melville film I've seen, at the end I loved the net effect of the film. While I was watching it, yes I was aware of its very deliberate pacing and an attention to detail so fine that it bordered on tedious, but when I sat back and read the end credits, I was blown away.
