I'm with Nathaniel.Julia is not a perfect movie but it's quite fascinating: the structure,the fogginess,the subtext.I could watch it for a 4th time.

It makes perfect sense everything Mark says about the struggling single-mom thing being a key issue in the relevance of The Goodbye Girl in 1977.Otherwise,I don't get it.

I miss the times when movies were in the same movie theatre for months.Even a year.

Is there a reason why you keep conversations under an hour?

August 1,2016 | Unregistered Commenter/3rtful

/3rtful -- it has to do with the website hosting and the requirements of uploading.technical limitations.

Peggy Sue -- yeah i miss those times too because dramas especially could take on a life that was unexpected if there was really time for word of mouth to build.

Oh,I just remembered!Didn't Jane Fonda name her daughter after Vanessa Redgrave?

August 1,2016 | Unregistered CommenterPeggy Sue
