06.11.06Paramount It was supposed to be a double feature of horny old men and young girls but they didn't get all of the Lolita in time so hopefully I'll be able to see that tomorrow. Instead, all I saw on this lazy sunday afternoon was Elia Kazan's movie of Tennessee Wiliams' screenplay about the New South. It's basically Karl Malden vs. Elia Kazan for the young and saucy Carroll Baker... AKA The Battle of the Noses. I think Malden's still wins out but even when he was young and virile Wallach had a hell of a schnaz. Like most of these beloved Kazan/Wiliams pictures, I am not enough of a fan to sing their praises. They still seem like plays caught on film to me... yeah yeah good acting and all that but the scenes are so long and there's so much emotion flying all over the place that I'm left pretty exhausted by the end. I guess I can only take so many 15 minute scenes before I start to zone out from lack of explosions... i guess i have to say it's a good movie (really great characters, great acting, blah blah blah) but these types of movies are just not my cup of tea, even if it's about perverts.
