The Strange Love of Martha Ivers
1 day ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

WOW. what a powerful tale of how suspicions can goad people into creating negative destinies. The four principals each give standout performances, with a well crafted script, good sets lit effectively, and nearly impeccable direction and editing. Well worth watching.

An exceptional tale based on real incidents.
Another Ron Howard Film.

The Whales of August
15 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A marginal movie, with understated drama. Four top box-office draws of years past work together to weave an uneven tale of how friendships can change & renew among those who are dedicated to each other.

This was Lillian's last film, and Anne received an Oscar nomination for her efforts. Betty and Vincent are emotional opposites in this film, with all three characters vying for Lillian's time & affection.

Popeye
Popeye (1980)

Unusual concept which just doesn't work. Basically they filmed it as a silent, color film and added all diologue/sound effects in post production. Weak idea poorly executed, which is a shame as Walston, Williams and Duvall were perfectly cast.

The Woman in White

½

A tale which nearly rivals L'Homme au Masque de Fer (The Man in the Iron Mask) in it's breadth and passion. Only here it is the women who are victims of oppressive men and must find their way to health & freedom - possibly by allowing a gentleman to learn all the details which even they have not discovered. Worth watching a second time to enjoy the artistry & fine acting.

I will also mention that one character seems oppressed by an illness which is little understood today, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. To learn about this very real disabling & chronic condition please browse www.hfme.org/mesymptoms.htm
