Did You See That One?

La Grande Illusion


“For me it’s simple. A golf course is for golf. A tennis court is for tennis. A prison camp is for escaping.” – Pierre Fresnay as Captain Boeldieu

Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence


This is a film that caught me by surprise. The nature of human beings and the long-term results of actions taken are both investigated throughout the movie. Bowie does a wonderful job playing a man ruined but looking for salvation. Tom Conti is amazing as Mr. Lawrence. His emotional portrayal of a man who is isolated from everyone around him is perfect.
