what’s the rumpus?

millcros

Haven’t had much luck with movies lately — no doubt due at least partially to my unsettled life. So I’ve been returning to some old favorites, like sex lies & videotape, Dust in the Wind (Hou), Speaking Parts, Who’ll Stop the Rain and Blue Velvet. All of which I enjoyed, especially Dust. But the film I’ve gotten the most pleasure from lately is the Coen bros. masterpiece, Miller’s Crossing, which still seems just about perfect — music, cinematography, wonderfully rich dialogue and a plot I’m even now not sure I follow completely, though it’s not that complicated.

Sheer joy.
