    Baz Luhrmann is still the only film director to successfully translate Shakespeare to modern audiences. 

    Cinematography is beautiful. The old lady is an amazing actor. 

    I’ve seen it heard this story many times before but it was no less boring or annoying. Had to use context clues and wait for actions to see what was happening since I couldn’t follow the dialogue. Just kind of tuned out. Unless you know the story by heart it’s easy for your mind to just float away. It’s not how normal people speak. If there is such a thing as overacting, William was the king of overwriting.

    Moving. Beautiful. Joaquin was devistatingly brilliant. Music was chilling. Mental illness elements were powerful. Final speech could have used a few more rewrites. I didn’t feel for him or the cause. 🤡

    Realize I’ve never seen this all the way through. Very scary. Amazing horror cinema for 1973. I had a deeper connection to the material since I grew up Catholic. 

    Everyone was great, especially Linda Blair and Lee Cobb as Lieutenant Kinderman. Effects in this are top notch. Apparently this was the first use of early version of a Steadicam style rig. 

    Beyond Fest 2019 Egyptian Theater Los Angeles. Supposed to be Q&A with William Friedkin but he fell ill so Linda Blair showed up. She had some nice insight and great message about animal welfare.
