This is a TV film but not even that good. It is pure dribble. The acting is non existent. The plot is simplistic. The only thing I liked was the structure of The Boot. The cars were good too. And I want to make a trifle.
Catchfire or Backtrack with Jodie Foster and Dennis Hopper is a fun movie which moves right along. To me the great chemistry between Foster and Hopper made it worth the watch. Although he was a troublesome man to work with, Foster seems to get along fine. Of course Hopper is the director as well so that probably explains it. The helicopters were exciting to watch, but it seemed too dangerous.
Chad Allen is a gay detective who is able to get the bad guys and be macho man. The music is very good. The plot moves along and demonstrates an originality in that the two gay men kiss and hug and are very loving. Other than being gay they lead ordinary lives except for the murder here of a lawyer trying to give away three million dollars. There is a child porn video gang involved.
Also a cop is emotionallly involved with a woman who killed her husband. Never a dull moment.
This 1992 version of Wuthering Heights has some scenic moments on rocks and hills. Juliette Binoche is beautiful and fragile as Cathy. Hearhcliff is played by Ralph Fiennes who can overdo a heavy look. The music overwhelms most of the film. The film has an impossible job of overshadowing previous film. Watch worthy though for comparison sake.
I loved comparing Paris in 1953 to present day Parisian films. There were so many more trees. There were so few people. Margarite Rutherford buys a Mona Lisa copy. Sims outdrinks a Russian snd Bloom outsmarts an old frenchman. Its fun in that it is light and isn't light what Parisian romance is.
