"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Prime/Hulu in July: Breakfast on Mulholland Dr with a Manchurian

Time to play Streaming Roulette. Each month,to survey new streaming titles,we freeze frame the films at random places with the scroll bar and whatever comes up first,that's what we share -- no cheating!

Which of these films will you be streaming this month for the first time or as a rewatch?Do tell us in the comments.Ready for our game?Okay let's  go...

Everyone thought he was dotty the way he gorged himself on peanut butter.But he wasn't dotty.Just sweet and vague and terribly slow.Poor Fred.

Breakfast at Tiffany's(1961) only on Prime
Everyone knows that Audrey Hepburn is wonderful/funny/elegant in this picture...though some think she's miscast.Less often noted but worthy of careful inspection: the smoking hotness of George Peppard as her conflicted gigolo neighbor.[5 Oscar nominations and 2 wins,both for Henry Mancini's music]

Smackdown '94: Uma,Dianne,Jennifer,Helen,and Rosemary

Presenting Oscar's Chosen Supporting Actresses of the Films of 1994.

THE NOMINEES: The Academy wrapped up their love affair with a previous winner (Dianne Wiest) while starting a new one with a future winner (Helen Mirren).Two fresh-faced delights (Uma Thurman,Jennifer Tilly) and an esteemed veteran (Rosemary Harris) were along for the ride.

In a rare turn of events the shortlist leaned far away from tears and dove headfirst into stylized fun or outright belly laughs (Rosemary Harris was the only player in a traditional drama).A quick list of the roles sounds like a joke set-up or at least a wild party: A fertile queen,a pompous diva,a wealthy society matriarch,and not but one buttwotrouble-maker gangster molls who moonlight in acting.


Here to talk about these five nominated turns are,in alpha order:Erik Anderson(Awards Pundit),Nick Davis(Professor),Itamar Moses(Tony-winning Playwright),Alfred Soto(Editor/Critic),and your hostNathaniel Rfrom The Film Experience.亚博主页[Apologies but the sixth announced panelistSheila O'Malley-- who previously provided brilliant insight in our 1984 discussion -- had to attend to a last minute emergency so we'll have to catch up with her again down the road.]

Readers form the collective panelist each month (though there were weirdly fewer votes this round for such a recent year!).Youbroke the panel tie to determine the winner this time around.Now it's time for the main event...

Noirvember: "Bound" (1996)

byChris Feil

It's worth remembering that while the Wachowski's career has been defined byThe Matrixand to a lesser extent their following sci-fi films,they actually started their careers in another genre entirely.Bound,their 1996 queer crime thriller starring Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly,launched them onto the scene as audacious visual stylists and smart thrillmakers.If noir has basically died in our current film landscape,this film represents one of its great final moments.
